HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
(from bio) Starting as an actor in New York, Paul Pape got his break when he was cast to co-star in "Saturday Night Fever". With nearly 6000 voice-over credits alone in his 34 year career, Paul has been heard in almost every form of media; including commercials, narrations, promos & trailers, animated features, television series, feature films, movies of the week and video games. He is considered one of the leading voices in the ADR field (Automated Dialogue Replacement), having worked on over 120 television series and many of the biggest blockbuster movies of recent years. Video game powerhouse Electronic Arts gave Paul an award for both his voice-over and on-camera performance in "Black", a #1 video game that has sold over two million copies in the U.S. and Britain. Other recent credits include promos for President Obama and the Democratic National Committee, the Starz Channel, Fox Sports Network and HBO, as well as narrations for industrial clients such as Raytheon and the Boeing Corporation. Paul was honored to narrate a video for the Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards when they presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to his best friend, the late Don LaFontaine, at the Kodak Theater. In addition to doing voice-over work, Paul serves on the Board of Directors of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation. Having conceived the idea to build the Don LaFontaine Voice-over Lab, he was joined in the effort by fellow co-founders Joe Cipriano and George Whittam. Located at the Foundation's Actors Center in Los Angeles, the Lab opened in June of 2010.
