PETER BAKER IN VISION
Please provide your script with the directions as you would normally for voiceover - style, pace, attitude, etc.
For in-vision projects, tell me what to wear and what backgrounds you’d like. Give me captions and overlay pictures if required and your company logo. We can edit them all in for you - no problem! My colleagues and I are very experienced in Adobe Premiere Pro software.
Please provide your “studio” background, or choose one of mine!

A BROADCAST STYLE NEWS ANCHOR FOR YOUR PROJECT
Why use an in-vision host? Well, often clients have promo videos, corporate films or training programmes where parts of the script have nothing specific to show on the video screen.
If the video script mentions, say, parts of an engine, it’s important to see the parts of the engine. If the script talks about eating fish cakes, the viewer really needs to see people enjoying fish cakes.
If however, it’s a general introduction to a training course, a discourse on philosophy or any section of script where there are no relevant illustrative shots to cover the voiceover, it’s a good option to see the voiceover “in vision”.
The other great advantage of in vision presentation is that the personality of the host comes across far better when you see them than just hearing a disembodied voice.
As well as being a very experienced voiceover artist, I have much experience presenting to camera for both non-broadcast and on air work, with many years as a BBC regional news reader in the UK and the in vision presenter of Granada Action for ITV as well as news.
Examples are above - I have many more I can send you - let me know the style you’re looking for.
I hire a professional TV studio with broadcast microphones, Autocue and chromakey or “green screen” facilities. If you’re not familiar with this system, it allows the “green” to be replaced by whatever you want. This gives enormous flexibility for you.
My face can be shifted, right, left, drop shadowed, a logo put behind, or you can key me in front of live action, it’s up to you. Chromakey facility is a standard feature in most professional editing programmes such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid or Final Cut Pro.
I can offer up to 5 minutes worth of in-vision presentation (say cut up into 5 x 1 minute reads) and this is for just £300 GBP. You will get HD 720 Mp4 files or 1080 Mp4 files if required. If you request the audio as wav files as well, that is also no problem.
NOTE: If you don’t want to key in a background yourself, send me your 1080 x 1920 image or video and I will do this at no extra fee.
SO - WHAT YOU NEED TO GIVE ME!
You need to give me a script in either Word or Text format, with the usual voiceover guidance about pace, style and with any unusual pronunciations explained.
What do you want me to wear? Casual or a jacket? A tie? The colour? I also need the script sectionalised into definite in-vision sections. What do I mean by this? Well, when recording audio, if I make a mistake or the microphone pops, I pick up and edit the audio file seamlessly later. If I’m in vision, however, my head will move in a “jump cut” over the edit.
So, on the script, make it clear which sections HAVE to be continuously in vision, with no illustrative shots you’re going to paste over me in vision. Please put a row of X’s on the script in between each section of text that HAS to be 100% in vision with no edits at all, in other words one continuous in-vision take.
WHAT SHOT SIZE DO YOU WANT?
To have a long section of anyone presenting to camera can be a little boring to the viewer, so it’s standard broadcast practice to record a script twice - as both a “mid shot” from the upper waist up, as well as a close up, the face only. Then in edit, a mixture of shot sizes are put together giving interest and variety. Of course, the perspective of the keyed on background needs to change over these shot changes as well, to give the illusion of the “virtual studio”.
So let me know if you’d like your script recorded twice like this. Of course, the cost will increase, as a 5 minute script will then be the fee for a 10 minute recording, but the final result will look far better with the variety of shot. If you are going to just use my in vision presentation as short introductions to sections, for example, then recording just a standard mid shot should be just fine, but it’s up to you!
WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE
You’ll receive separate video files of the sections between the X’s lines on your script.
Mark on your script what you want the video file to be named as to help you in edit.
The formats I can provide include any of the Standard Definition or High Definition formats. If you’re not technically savvy and you need to edit a standard SD project, an AVI or MOV file should suit your format; if you know exactly the format you need, then tell me, such as say: H264 mp4 file 1080, progressive, 32 Mb per sec, or whatever!
I will give you a link to download the files. I look forward to working with you!
You don’t need to provide backgrounds - why not choose of one mine?

I started work as a bulletin news reader for BBC TV in the 1980’s, when TV cameras still were proud to be “in colour”! (and I had more hair) Today, as well as offering voiceover recording services, I also offer “in-vision” presentation, using the chromakey Virtual Studio system. I offer full broadcast quality HD sound and vision - you own all rights.
I have many years’ experience as a broadcast presenter for both BBC & ITV Granada news and all I need from you is your script as text or Word, guidelines as to style and pace, and details of unusual pronunciations or acronyms. Of course, let me know what to wear.
Please provide a background as an HD still or video...or I can provide a variety of general backgrounds, see below. Maybe you need the raw Chromakey footage to edit yourself - no problem. As I have to hire the TV studio, autocue and the video editor it is more expensive than voiceover rates. I can offer up to 2 minutes for £100, or 5 minutes worth of in-vision presentation (say cut up into 5 x 1 minute reads) and this is for £300 GBP or equivalent currency. (PayPal accepted) You will get HD 720 Mp4 files or full HD1080 Mp4 files if required. (Other videos formats available such as Windows Media for Powerpoint, etc.) If you request the audio as wav files as well, that is also no problem.
