Find an interesting place.…Don't just assume that the narrator should be in a studio.…I want you to indicate all sources of music and graphics and sound effects.…Use your imagination.…Come up with something really original, and then feel free to use the narration as…either all voice over, or all voice on camera, or a combination of both.…There's nothing that says the narrator has to be all voice over, or…all voice on camera, you can pick…whichever one you want, use your imagination.…
