GKN Weekly Update 12.20.10
Happy Christmas Week! Shopping done? Presents wrapped? Stockings hung? It’s an exciting week, ain’t it?
So last week I finished the first 24 of 50 medical narration scripts. Whew! The hard part about these wasn’t necessarily saying those big scary science-y words, it was the narration of formulas. It’s not like narrating a list, even thought it’s sort of a list. It’s more like saying a phone number. Dat-dat-duh, dat-duh, dat-duh, you know? Also, in the middle of the formulas were a ton of parentheticals. For example, “X (the sum of A plus B), times Y (the units of energy), equals Z.” Stuff like that.
TIP OF THE WEEK: I love science & math but I only took the minimum requirements in high school & college (I was too busy getting my thespian on!) so I need to really study these scripts to make sure I know what I’m talking about. However, it’s not so much that you know what you’re talking about, it’s about SOUNDING like you know what you’re talking about! Cadence & tone are just as important when trying to get ideas across as much as subject knowledge. Obviously, it’s better to truly know the subject, but we only have so much time and so much brain capacity!
