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!

Award Winning Voice Over

 September 13, 2016
It’s always nice to get some kind of recognition for your voice over work and just recently I discovered that I am now apparently an “award winning voice over artist”.  A couple of years ago I blogged about having provided some character voice overs for film-maker Ian Woodward for a film he was making about the life of the composer Tchaicovsky. This was the second time I’d provided character voices read more

Dutch film-makers Izzyworks recently invited me to  record the voice over narration for a short film they were making describing the progress of some companies in The Netherlands as they made the switch to power supplies based on sources of renewable energy. I’ve worked for Izzyworks before and like the fact that they often ask for voice over narration for videos that are a little bit different from the usual read more

I’ve recorded quite a lot of corporate voiceovers for the team at Media-Paten in Germany. My work has been with their production studio but they also have a recently relaunched data base of voice artists. It might be a good place to start if you are looking for German voice talent. In fact it might also be a good source of voice artists with Italian, or Norwegian, or Swedish or read more

I’ve written before about how the internet has made it much easier to do voiceover work in markets all over the world. I can sit in my recording booth in the UK and be directed via ISDN or phone patch from anywhere in the world and then use the internet to send the recorded audio files to the client. Actually these days I’m mostly self directing and the only contact read more

A key element of voiceover work is reading the script. It’s the job of the voice over artist to take those words and bring them to life to lift the meaning off the page and convey it effectively to the listener whether that is in a TV or radio ad, corporate narration, explainer video or e-learning module.  For the voice artist its a skill that gets learned and honed by read more

I’ve been spending a great deal of time in my voice over booth since the start of 2016 recording a steady and varied stream of voice scripts – some for existing clients and some for new ones. I have been providing voice overs to elearning company Knowledge Front for quite a number of years. My first project for them this year has been a continuation of one that started last read more

VO for No More Limits

In October I was asked to record a voice over for film maker Gareth Lang. At the time the project was described to me as piece of work for a post graduate qualification.  I was interested in the project, called “No More Limits”, precisely because it was different from the usual voice over narrations for corporate videos that I spend most of my time producing. Also it was short so read more

September is a month that always sticks in my mind because, as a youngster, it marked the end of the laziness of the summer holidays and the start of the school year. However as an adult September is significant to me because it’s the month where my radio career started.  In retrospect it was one of the first steps in my journey towards being a voice over artist. It was read more

One of the delights of voice over work is the range and variety of projects that come my way and the chance they offer for me to learn about all sorts of new things. A short while ago I was asked by Leagus Video in Huddersfield to record four video voice over narrations on a subject I have previously never encountered. The videos were to explain the equipment used and read more

Every five years Amsterdam in the Netherlands plays host to SAIL – a celebration of all things ship and sail related. More than 600 ships from all over the world congregate in the harbour – displaying a wide range of craft including tall ships and historical replicas. SAIL 2015 took place recently and this time the nautical festival saw a unique collaboration between the event organisers and social media giant read more
