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!

Shipping Forecast Sea Areas

Radio shipping forecast used in short story

 January 29, 2018
As a former radio presenter and long time radio “anorak” I was interested to hear a short story over the weekend on BBC Radio 4 billed as “A continuity announcer veers drastically off course during a live broadcast of the Shipping Forecast”. I like things based on being “behind the scenes” of radio (although often people get it wrong – like Alan Partridge doing live radio links with his head read more

New Look Website for 2018

 December 4, 2017
My website has undergone a transformation today thanks to some great work by web designer Duncan Arrow over the last week or so. After a period of research and planning. The new website was put together offline and modified and tweaked before uploading today. I wanted a website that showcased the voice over work I’ve been doing more effectively. Video is now much more prominent on the home page and read more

Free Press 2017 – video on-line

 November 8, 2017
In early November 2017 I provided the voice overs for a series of videos shown at the Free Press Unlimited journalism awards held in The Hague. The annual awards showcase the best investigative journalism from around the world whilst also providing an opportunity to reveal the risks undertaken by journalists in the course of their work. My voiceover provided announcements for the event’s opening ceremony and introduced the keynote speaker read more

The Maze - film Title credit

New Documentary Voice Over

 June 19, 2017
The Maze is a new documentary for TV and online made by film maker Frederik Moser and blue and green communication. I’ve just recorded some voice over for The Maze where I’m  providing the English translation for German speaker Christian Weichselbaum in an interview.  In the film my first section starts just a few minutes into the 90 mins running time.  So what is the film all about? This is read more

Bad News for Voiceovers?

 November 29, 2016
My attention has been drawn to a recent presentation, made at the Adobe MAX 2016 conference in San Diego, which I believe has major implications for those of us working as voice overs and those thinking of getting into voice work. Xeyu Jin took to the stage to demonstrate the new VoCo software.  Apparently once the software has been able to analyse up to 20 minutes of dialogue it can read more

Free Press video now online

 November 3, 2016
I was asked by Nynke La Porte at Izzyworks in The Netherlands to provide a voice over narration for a video that was set to open a Free Press event this month in Amsterdam. The event was designed to support and celebrate the work and dedication of journalists and also examine the threats to their lives and safety when covering stories in war zones and places of political unrest.

I’ve just been recording the voiceover for a hard hitting short film to be used at the opening of a Free Press Unlimited event in the Hague, the Netherlands. Once again I’m working with film maker Nynke La Porte and her team at Izzyworks in Amsterdam and the video is to be used at the opening of the “Stand Up for Journalists and Justice” event on the 2nd of November, read more

Voiceover studio link up

 October 15, 2016
I’ve recently linked my studio up with a very useful website that’s just the job if you are a voice artist who’s out and about and away from your home studio and suddenly find you need a studio for an urgent voice over session. The way it works with voiceoverstudiofinder is that you just put in your current location or a post code and within seconds you’ll have information of read more

Mammoth Voice over

 September 13, 2016
I’ve recently been in my voice over booth recording a series of VO narrations to some information videos for the furniture manufacturer and retailer Mammoth.  It seems one of their main areas of expertise, and where they differ from some other purveyors of furniture, is in the foam they use. It’s been a while since I last bought a bed or a sofa and when I did last buy a read more
