Why cold calling as a voice over is so important

For many people, cold calling is a dirty word (or two words, for my more pedantic readers).

More and more, our experience of the cold call is one of some foreign […]

Latest Video Game Trailer is Epic

Greetings gaming fans. As you know, I was privileged last year to be the voice of the Skaven priests in Warhammer, Total War II. The role was a lot of fun, although screaming battle cries as a giant psychotic rat didn’t do my voice any favours – or my psyche for that matter! So it […]

Voice Artists Have to Trust Strangers

Does a voice over artist need an agent?

For any of you reading this on the day that I wrote it, Happy April Fools’ Day – if indeed such a sentiment can be expressed. Believe it or not, my wife and I saw some really weird stuff on Facebook this morning and it was only around 30 minutes day, whilst giving the kids […]

For as long as I have been doing voiceovers, my one passion has consistently been animation. Indeed, it was impersonating cartoon characters that got me into this in the first place, and the chance to do it professionally has always been a goal of mine.

For the past few years, I’ve had the great pleasure of being the Voice of God for the main event in the UK promotional merchandise industry’s calendar.
