The BARRY TRUSSELL galaxy within

Profile Information

Voice Actor, Studio Engineer, Creative Director
I am generally pretty quiet and observant, I like to take it all in. This enables me to property develop the character for acting out the script at hand whether it's 5 seconds to 30 seconds, 60 seconds and on up.

I prefer and perform better in shorter pieces, quirky pieces, and very straightforward pieces like medical narration, educational pieces. I'm not a movie trailer guy, that's just reality. Long sessions are fine when recording shorter pieces and chaining together. However, I'll be perfectly honest that an audio book is not my style.

I'm quite easy to work with and flexible within reason, very straightforward and down to earth - been around awhile in other words. If you've got a project I'm sure we can knock it out just fine.
Voicing .....mostly intellectual property or are non disclosure projects. My strength is in the assurance of privacy - that's been my experience.
Directing....really love this, too.
Teaching recording with Audacity basics to newbies and those who struggle with recording and editing.

That keeps me pretty busy. How do I love thee voice acting? Let me count the ways......
United States English
Professional to quirky with a nice range in between. Voice is in the medium range and typically classified as . . . The Lovable Guy Next Door. Should you like to hear a custom audition don't hesitate to email me with your request at my email: You can also visit my website:

The new website is being worked on, due for launch mid July.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
The trick is to bring believability to the script so for dialects I bring whatever the project at hand may call for. Where there's a will there's a way; that's my belief. After all, This is ACTING, right?
Senior Male, Middle Age Male, Young Adult Male
Yamaha MW10 mixer, MXL 990 mic and access to every studio imaginable with whatever equipment Clients prefer. PC Windows. Audacity and Adobe Audition 3 softwares. I make it easy, bottom line.

The Newest VO Email SCAM - Please Read and BEWARE !!!

Posted on May 10, 2010 at 8:00pm 6 Comments

I received an email today, and once this is posted I suspect many more will have also. Since this is completely unsolicited AND the email is generic, not specific with my name, I deduce this to be a scam, just as each of the others in the same verbiage have been. Stay away, don't answer any email that looks like this:

Hi Barry

I much apperciate your kind words. Right now my objective is to write a clear and straight forward script of questions for Cold Calls. Any suggestions of specific questions to ask? I am referring to many people as possible to visit my web site for input. Your feedback would also be most welcomed.

Best regards,

Hi Barry,
I am landing on my feet, thank you very much. I do miss the weekly workouts - boo-hoo! How's life for you?

Barry, my man!

I just got back from a little R&R in Central Oregon (Sunriver), SWEET!.

I completed my first paid VO gig last month: writing copy and performing as the Motivational Voice on a new Cardio Workout machine for a company based in London! I'm an INTERNATIONAL voiceover artist now!

Thanks so much for the excellent posting about P2P sites and your recommendations. You really hit the nail on the head! I hope to continue these discussions, as they are important. Just like the Union/FiCore/Non-Union discussions, we are really just scratching the surface on what is the right path for each individual VO talent.

Let me know what's shaking in your neck of the woods.

Bill Sleeper
