It struck me today that in every art discipline, a well planned “pause” can be the most effective tool ever! In choreography it can be stillness, in painting it can be blank open space and in voice over it is the pause. A well placed moment of silence can make the difference between an o.k. read and a message that knocks your socks off! We have a tendency to not want to pause. We worry that we will lose momentum or traction in our message. Pausing can help us communicate the emotion that a word can not. So, take a moment to pause and consider the power of the pause.
