    Did you know?

    "Voice-over, also known as off-camera or off-stage commentary, is a production technique where a voice is used in a radio, television production, filmmaking, theatre, or other presentations.

    The voice-over may be spoken by someone who appears elsewhere in the production or by a specialist voice actor.

    It is pre-recorded and placed over the top of a film or video and commonly used in documentaries or news reports to explain information.

    The voice-over has many applications in non-fiction as well. Television news is often presented as a series of video clips of newsworthy events, with voice-over by the reporters describing the significance of the scenes being presented.

    These are interspersed with straight video of the news anchors describing stories for which video is not shown. Television networks or Game shows formerly made extensive use of voice-overs.

    In film, the film-maker places the sound of a human voice (or voices) over images shown on the screen that may or may not be related to the words that are being spoken. Consequently, voice-overs are sometimes used to create ironic counterpoint. Also, sometimes they can be random voices not directly connected to the people seen on the screen. In works of fiction, the voice-over is often by a character reflecting back on his or her past, or by a person external to the story who usually has a more complete knowledge of the events in the film than the other characters."
