Voice Messages: Do You Have A Story To Tell?

I received an email earlier this week from Marty. He’s a filmmaker and his current project is all about voices. Marty was looking for my help for a particular part of the film. He wondered if I had a story I could share, or, if I knew someone that might. Specifically, he was looking for a story, or stories, of voice loss.

Given that I use my voice for a living, and this blog is read by hundreds of people who also use their voice for a living, I thought I might be able to help Marty out! Continue reading Voice Messages: Do You Have A Story To Tell?

The Guardian – Best Commercial Of 2012 So Far?

The Guardian - Three Little PigsI watch commercials sometimes. I know. That makes me weird. In fact, sometimes I pay more attention to commercials than I do to the actual show that I’ve tuned into. I do this because I’m a Voice Talent. I like to listen to the voiceover work other talents are doing. How they sound. How they read. How the interpret a script. It’s research. It’s personal development. Continue reading The Guardian – Best Commercial Of 2012 So Far?

Phone Systems Demo

Here is a quick demo of some of the recent phone systems I’ve worked on. What do you need? A phone tree? A simple voicemail greeting? An on-hold message? This is just a sampling of what I’ve done, and what I can do.

Do you need a voiceover? I can do videos, commercials, phone systems and likely about anything else you could use a voice on. I offer competitive rates, I’ll try to work with you on your budgets, and I can almost always offer turnaround in 24 hours or less.

Want to see more examples of my work? You’ll find plenty on this site or on my YouTube channel.

Looking for a voice for your next project? I’d love the opportunity to talk to you about it. Click here.

Voiceover Demo – March 2011

I’ve been keeping busy with work lately. I like it when it’s steady. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with a great cross section of clients. Different reads, different styles, different projects. It keeps things interesting and keeps me on my toes.

I post many of my projects on the site, but I know sometimes you don’t always have the time to surf through and listen to everything. If you’re looking for a voice and you’re trying to decide if I am the right guy for your job, here’s an opportunity for you to sample me in a hurry. I’ve put together a very quick, raw demo of some of my most recent projects.

This gives you an idea of my sound. Keep in mind that if you’d like to hear a custom demo using a portion of your script I’m more than willing to accomodate that. Just send me a note and let me know.

Voiceover Turnaround & Delivery

One of the most common questions I’m asked by clients is, “how soon can you do this?

We live in a world of deadlines and urgency. Things need to get done by yesterday because tomorrow hasn’t even come and we’re already behind. I’m not sure why that is, exactly. All I know is that seldom do clients want to wait, or can wait, for their audio. For me, this is not a problem. If you need audio recorded quick I’m more than happy to oblige.

In every job that I audition for and every proposal that I deliver, I tell clients that in most cases I can offer turnaround in 24 or less. Obviously if you need me to read one hundred pages of copy it’s going to take a little longer. For 99% of the work I do, however, 24 hours is my offer. The fact of the matter is, it’s almost never 24 hours. Most of the time I can record your audio right away. If I can’t do it right away, I can likely do it within a few hours. This is one of the services I offer to clients that keeps them coming back. They know that when the crunch is on, I can deliver.

Another common question is “how will you deliver my audio?

I can create audio files for you in WAV, AIFF and MP3 format. If you have special instructions for the audio just let me know. For example, do you need one large file? Or do you need a number of individual files, perhaps broken up in conjunction with slides for a presentation? Either way, I can accomodate. As for the actual delivery method, I can email you audio if the file sizes are small enough. Otherwise I will post the files to my FTP site and provide you with access information. I have a general FTP for most jobs, however if you require it, I can create secure folders as well.

If you need a voiceover in a hurry I can help you. If you catch me in the morning I can deliver it by noon. If you catch me in the afternoon I can record it in the evening and have it waiting for you in the morning. In nearly all instances I can turn your project around less than 24 hours and deliver the audio to the exact file format and specifications you require.

Are you ready to book? Do you have more questions? Lets talk. I look forward to working with you.
