Blog

You find out about a amazing range of things when you record corporate voiceovers.

Non slip tennis courts; a plastic used in photovoltaic cells; an iphone app that controls wood burning stoves; a machine that measures human body resonant frequencies; a pylon manufacturer in the UAE and and a video explaining how to drive fancy VW cars on rocky terrain – you name it I’ve done the voice over!.

I hope these blog posts give a flavour of the more interesting voiceover stuff that sometimes comes my way – plus some of the other things I like that I’ve come across in those moments when I’m waiting for the next script to arrive!

Back in the voice over booth

 September 4, 2018
After a very welcome summer break I’m back in my recording studio’s booth recording a whole variety of voice over projects. Earlier in the year I recorded a video narration for Amsterdam based Audio as a Service. I’ve just been recording more VO for videos for them promoting the idea of hiring tech equipment rather than buying it. I’ve been IVR voice for Legal and General for a number of read more

World Fishing Day promo still - Fishing TV

Voiceover for on-line TV promo

 June 20, 2018
I was invited to record voice overs for the series of promos for an event to be shown by on-line TV station Fishing TV. Its the first time I’ve worked for Fishing TV and I have to admit up until this voice-over job I’d never heard of the event in question: World Fishing Day. But I now know that it takes place across 24 hours on the 23rd of June read more

Documentary VO narration

 April 26, 2018
I’ve been working again with Nynke La Porte at Izzyworks in Amsterdam. This time she asked me to provide an English voice over narration for two short documentary style films. The focus of the films is a man called Dolf who has mental health issues leaving him with the equivalent of the mental age of a two year old.  For many years he had a tendency to be aggressive to read more

Making voicereels for gaming

 April 9, 2018
When I’m not doing my own voice over work I hire out my recording studio for recording projects.  I mostly concentrate on spoken word and voice projects.  Recently I’ve been asked to help a number of voice artists record and produce demos specifically for the video gaming market. It’s often quite hard to decide on the content of such reels and also difficult to know exactly how they should sound.  read more

Good advice if you use your voice

 April 4, 2018
I’m a great fan of TED talks and this is one I watched recently that has great advice for voice over artists or indeed anyone using their voice. It’s from a talk given a few years ago by writer and sound expert Julian Treasure. Initially it’s about things to do, or not to do, if you want people to really listen to what you say. Julian has a list of read more

VO for HF Holidays TV ad

 February 20, 2018
Towards the end of last year I was booked to record a voice over for a TV commercial for outdoor holiday and activity provider H F Holidays. I recorded the voice over in my studio in a directed ISDN session with Pangaea TV. After the session I sent them the audio file and – as is usually the case in this line of work – I didn’t get to see read more

New IVR phone messages

 February 20, 2018
I’ve been the on-hold/IVR voiceover for Legal and General since 2013. They are a large well established brand who are involved in supporting many other insurance related brands and so most months I record quite a number of new message prompts for them. This month has been a busy one with, just this week,  a long list of detailed information messages to record. Also this month I have added a read more

A “swift vo” goes on-line

 February 10, 2018
I was getting ready for a directed voice over session with TMP Audio Post Production in Sweden yesterday. I already had the script from the client and was going through marking it up with some notes ready for the session. While I was doing this another script popped into my email inbox from Michiel Koudstaal at Voxcast in Holland. The subject line just referred to a “swift vo” which it read more

A dream console for recording studio engineers

 February 8, 2018
As an owner of a small recording studio I have a life-long interest in recording equipment including microphones, tape machines, audio interfaces and, of course, studio mixing consoles.  My attention was recently drawn to an interesting on-line video documentary about one of the legendary brand names in the audio recording business: Focusrite. The video is about the time when Focusrite decided to build no-compromise, large format mixing consoles for the read more
