ilene Russell...the ideal Voice

Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
...ilene had a desire to pursue voice over in the late 1970's when, at the same time, the fitness industry literally swept her off her feet! Teaching dance-oriented exercise classes at the YMCA quickly proved to be a platform for developing a loyal following and the precursor to her own highly successful dance-fitness business, Fit n' Image, Inc.

In 2004, after two decades as lead instructor, choreographer, and ACE certified personal trainer, her passion for voice over resurfaced. In 2006, with the timing right, a leap of faith and a studio engineer who believed in her, ilene landed a commercial voice over radio spot. More gigs soon followed as well as private coaching. Education and training continues...and with some of the best in the industry. It's all good.

________________

We had the pleasure of working with ilene in the summer of '09 where she graciously recorded a voiceover for our website. Her captivating voice introduces viewers to our artist's, Marcus Johnson, latest CD release, Poetically Justified. We have gotten a very positive response regarding ilene's voiceover and believe it has contributed to peaking interest in our product.

ilene is very professional and easy to work with. She was able to work under our tight deadline and deliver a phenomenal voiceover. She proactively created the script of the voiceover and took direction well. We were impressed with the style and variations in voiceover delivery that we were able to choose from.

We are very happy to have worked with her and look forward to working with her again.
