Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
James Eastman began his career on stage at the age of seven. Through the years, Eastman continued to act in theater, then took on the highly demanding responsibilities of producing, directing, and coaching.

Radio opportunities provided a unique insight of learning the broadcasting business. James found himself writing copy and voicing commercials. For him, it was theater on a tiny stage but with a vastly bigger audience.

Having a critical ear, creating sound design came very naturally for Eastman and he richly exploited that talent in his theatrical work, radio broadcasts, and in movies for which he is presently nominated for an award in Sound Design.

For the past 7 years, James Eastman has been the consummate voice actor appearing in hundreds of computer animated features made by independent studios from around the world.

VOICE DESCRIPTION
J a m e s E a s t m a n
is not just any voice. He is a personality!
There are thousands of voices, many sounding exactly the same, as though they have been cloned and pushed out of some cookie-cutter factory. Practically, anybody will do if you are looking for just a voice....... but you aren't looking for just a voice. You are looking for "personality". That is what James Eastman brings to the microphone. Personality. Distinctive, personality.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Dialects:
James replies, "That depends on the alcohol content. There is a direct correlation you know."
Characters:
James asks, "Who would you like to like to meet? Let's walk over to my closet. Here is the key. Oh, yes, I do keep it locked... but you may go in there. I'll just wait out here."
Impressions:
James says, "Always endeavor to make a good one!"
VOICES I AM ABLE TO PERFORM
Senior Male, Senior Female, Middle Age Male, Young Adult Male
AUDIO DELIVERY METHOD
FTP, AIF, MP3, WAV
EQUIPMENT
It is believed that Mr. Eastman's equipment was stolen from Area 51,
Warehouse 13, and the Roswell Alien UFO crash site. When asked about
his equipment, Eastman would only say, "It is out of this world!"

Thanks James :) I've been a bit busy lately. Haven't been on my page for quite awhile. Just moved so that's been taking up alot of my time. I appreciate your input and it was a joy to have Don Morrow on our morning show. It was an honor, infact, to be able to speak to a man of such great talent.

Keep talking, my friend.

Hi James, I love spaghetti (born of parents from Italy) and sci-fi too :-) Actually, I'm still putting together my formal narration demo, so I haven't banged on the door of publishers yet. I've been playing today with my new Marshall MXL USB.009 mic and setting up the different bit, KHz for recording and playback. Thanks for your great info :-) - love your voices, Christine

The 2010 OLLIE AWARDS and The 2011 INTERNATIONAL MACHINIMA FESTIVAL

Posted on October 31, 2010 at 11:58am 0 Comments

It was extremely overwhelming as the generous machinima communities surprisingly showered me this year with far too many Ollie Awards for my voiceover work in machinima movies for 2010. It was stunning! I was numb and in complete shock as I was presented eight awards, eight Ollie statues! Among the honors, I was voted by the Machinima Academy as Best Male VO Actor 2010 and Best Supporting Male VO Actor 2010. My sound design and editing were also recognized with two Ollie Awards! Anyways... for… Continue
