Go on, have a look and let me know what you think ! It's here...

Voice Over Promo - Behind The Scenes

One day, I'll invest in a decent camera to spare everyone from the ropey quality and bad sync of my webcam. Until then, have a look a session from last Sunday when I recorded a promo for an Australian outfit for their Movie Night.

The Future Of TV & Film Is In Good Hands !

Moe and Rahul are two students from the respected Ravensbourne College in Kent, an establishment famous for training Britain's most talented directors, producers, animators and broadcast engineers. They approached me to voice a project of theirs and the result is stunning !
They have created a blog which details the hard work that goes into the making of the advert. All I can say is that I definately had the easy part !

A Face For Radio !

One of the first jobs this morning was the production of a sweeper for a radio station in Ireland. The webcam was balanced on the monitor, so I decided to hit record for audio and video. Here's the result. Yes, the moving pictures of me are just as bad as the stills ! Don't say I didn't warn you.....

Top UK Voice Man Mike Hurley Passes Away

Mike Hurley, one of the best known voices in Britain passed away earlier today. Although I never met Mike, I followed his career from his days as the breakfast jock at Pennine Radio in the late 70s, where his laid back presentation style, dry humour and fondness for playing Steely Dan tracks made for essential listening, through his countless ads for radio and television.
I used to think that Mike's voice was instantly recognisable, particularly on those energetic hard sell reads which Mike could do so well, but it wasn't until I discovered an short TV documentary about him that I realised just how many of the nation's favourite character ad voices he was responsible for. A true pro and a great loss to the industry.
Have a look at the documentary here.

Hillarious Tales On The Road With Bryan

If you want to beat the January blues, there's a new audio comedy book out that will do the trick.

Canadian voice over artist and marketing guru Bryan Cox is also a comedian and his new audio book harvests the funniest tales of life on the road on the stand up comedy circuit. There's 2 CDs packed with wall to wall laughs and it really is a "must listen".

For further details and places to find Comic Road Stories, click here. You won't be disappointed !

A Vast Collection Of Talent

Thanks go out to my good friend Bryan Cox for directing me towards a new talent listing site for promotion of voice over, radio, TV and artistic talent. As well as Bryan, my friends Jerry McCrae, JJ Wright, Jud Niven and many more already have a listing there.
