The training manual mentions content with lyrics, I'm wondering if there will be a place in the collection for clips with short spoken phrases, such as introductions or something of that sort?

I would imagine there would be a very large and lucrative place for that kind of thing.

"Hello. How may I direct your call?"

That my friends is the audio equivalent of the handshake shot.

Oh goodie. I've always wanted to do voiceover work.


Will there be rejections for "duplicate or too similar" if one submits different versions:


"Hello. How may I direct your call?"


"Hello. How may I direct your call?"


"Hello. How may I direct your call?"

And all these simple voice clips fall into the 1 credit category, yes?

Yes. So look for free talent. Preferably multi-lingual.

Regarding the "too similar" rejection in the photo world, interesting question. I'm guessing that there's a place for 1,000+ different voices saying the same line. This is going to be so much fun!
