Stage hypnosis show voiceover intro

Hey all,apart from my drumming and voiceovers, I now have a new hobby that's obsessing me - HYPNOSIS! I now have many hypnotist friends around the world and I have made introductions for their stage shows for them. Through one of my friends who lives in Staten Island, I made an intro for the actress Catherine Hickland, chopping up the music and sound effects... Do you know her? She's appeared in Knight Rider and One Life To Live.She emailed me today to say that she's added images to it for her…See More

Zut Alors! Another interesting session...

Posted on April 6, 2010 at 2:03pm 0 Comments

So I get a call from my agent saying that the pencil for today was confirmed and they sent me the video with the rough voiceover. I'm to play a dog, who's owned by fashion designer, Basil Soda!



I was running around like a nutter and later getting to the studio, so I grabbed my Mac and walked briskly to to the tube! Once settled, I opened my mail and opened the two scripts. Two? Yes, once in English... the other in French!! I didn't know if this was meant for me, so just in case, I… Continue

A tale of being given the run-around

So my agent calls me late Thursday night asking if I'm free for a last minute advert for tv: a new musical tomorrow morning, The Neil Sedaka Story. YES! So I get up early, go to the studio on the other side of London and do the session with the client on ISDN. I read the short script every way, from hard sell OTT to soft and smooth, to casual and everything in between. After giving him 20 different versions, he thanks me and I'm done.



I go off to do my drum teaching and when I get of… Continue

Another national tv ad - "wooop wooop!!"

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 3:50pm 4 Comments

Hey all, I've just recorded another national tv ad here in the UK, for cash4gold.com Apparently it's a US ad and they made a UK version. I had to read the strap line and then 2 and a half pages of number... twice!! It was a fairly hard sell, so afterwards (and during) my face was aching from smiling so much as I was reading!!

It's gonna be on a lot of channels here in the UK and if and when I get a copy of the ad, I'll post it here for you. I'm thrilled, my second national tv ad!

Dareen,

Thanks for listening. "Natural sounding voice" and monster truck announcing, hmmmm - have you been drinking too much coffee :-) I appreciate that you took the time to check out my reel. I'm working on a new one now with voice coach Deb Munro to actually try and bring out that "real" sound. Stay tuned. And if you ever need a really aggressive North American male voice...?

Yep Darren, we do have some takers. Just trying to settle on a venue currently.
