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!

Downloadable demos

 November 14, 2019
It was recently been pointed out to me that the voice over demos and showreels on my website were not available as downloads. For quite a while I had agreed with my website designer that this was not that important and anyway would probably lead to web page clutter. However a recent discussion in an on-line voice over group convinced me that I was missing out on potential voice overs read more

Studio upgrade – Blue Dog Power

 November 9, 2019
At the heart of my recording studio is my medium format Soundcraft Ghost 32 channel analogue mixing console. I’d always wanted a proper studio mixing desk and when I could afford it I bought this one new about 18 years ago. Over the years it’s needed some minor maintenance and has been sent back to the manufacturer Harmen on two occasions when something broke down. Last time the group busses read more

Do corporate videos need voice over?

 October 21, 2019
I’ve noticed that some on-line corporate videos now do not have voice overs.  Perhaps on some occasions the lack of voice over is because the company or organisation in question is working in a global market and they perhaps feel the pictures will explain everything you need to know.  Also they may not have the budget to localise the voice over content for every market and so choose to avoid read more

South Sudan – VO narration on-line

 September 22, 2019
I recently mentioned a voice over that I had been asked to record for the Amsterdam based film production company Izzyworks. It was an interesting narration for a video explaining the supportive role of the Dutch Government in promoting the rebuilding of the war torn African country South Sudan. At the point I previously posted about the job I thought it was more or less finished with perhaps just a read more

Voice over with the power (generation)

 September 9, 2019
From time to time in recent years I’ve read news items about power generation in the UK where experts wonder if we’ve got sufficient electricity generating capacity now and into the future. That power generation might be in short supply in the UK is no surprise to me: in recent years I’ve lost count of the number of voice overs I’ve recorded for Health and Safety videos for contractors that read more

I’m back from my summer break and back in the booth to record some voice over narrations. One is for a new corporate client – but for reasons of confidentiality I am not able to talk about it. The other is for a video promoting the work of the Dutch Government in South Sudan. This video is being produced by Nynke La Porte at Izzyworks in Amsterdam. It describes the read more

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
