Voice Artist’s Latest Trailer

RockGood morning blog fans and welcome to another fabulous week aboard the good ship voice over. Yes indeed, you find me in high spirits, not just because I’ve had a wonderfully productive week, but for the fact that the heatwave here in the UK appears to have broken and I can finally return to my studio without fear of bursting into flames.

Over the years I’ve promoted many things – TV shows, new products, charity appeals, the list goes on. One thing I have never promoted was a book. Granted, I have recorded audiobooks before, but this was a chance to actually record a promo for a book, and not just any book, but a book written by an author whose previous work I have greatly enjoyed and illustrated by a New York Times best seller.

The fact that it’s illustrated may well give you some clue to the fact that it is a children’s book, but unlike so many of the stories I read to my children each night before bed, this is one that I actually enjoy.

The author is Drew Daywalt and I particularly enjoy reading “The Day the Crayons Quit”. As someone who gets to give each colour their own unique voice, I simply love reading this to my kids, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I was asked to record a trailer for his new book, “The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors”.

The advertisers were looking for a voice which was part movie trailer and part wrestling announcer and so this is what they got:

And if I can just get serious for a moment. For the past 4 years I have been very proud to have taken part in the Shine Walk – a 26 mile marathon walk across London to raise money for Cancer Research. 16,000 of us take to the streets throughout the night and I would be incredibly grateful if you would consider sponsoring me for doing this.
