Show-reel Three

Seeking Synergies

Bob is eager to bring his talents to bear and help make your next AV production a memorable success. Here are some sample production areas.

The audio clips on this page are all home recorded. If you commission a voice recording from me, this is the excellent quality you will receive. These recordings are mp3 files.

Training material presenter
The ‘Trainer’ voice is mature and knowledgeable but down to earth, and crystal-clear while still remaining sympathetic and encouraging.

 

      Training audio/video
Podcasts and radio magazine segments  
      Podcast/Radio spots
A lively, engaging journalistic tone matching target demographic, possibly with a regional accent.

 

IVR (interactive voice response and phone messages)
      IVR
The required tone is measured, reassuring and fairly monotone.

 

Education audio books
      TEFL audio learning
Education audio is one area where the rest-of-the-world deserves 100% RP (received pronunciation)!

 

Audio tourism guides  
      Audio tourism guide
Here’s a sample read for an audio tourist guide.

Audio tour guides are often listened to by foreign visitors. A medium pace, level delivery and crystal-clear enunciation are essential.

 

Museum audio tour
      Museum audio tour
Here’s a sample read for a museum audio tour.

It’s vital the person who records your tour guide has some understanding of the content matter for the sense to get through.

 

Narration – audio books

The narrator/story-teller voice can vary greatly in involvement and energy, and is also an advertising staple.

This Sherlock Holmes read offers a fairly low-key sample.
      A Scandal in...
The opening of an  H H Munro story
      Filboid Studge
A non-fiction read
      Dietary guidelines
…and the greatest story ever told.
      The Gathering Storm
 

Verse

 

 

Bob has voiced a number of the famous Red Bull verse animations, sadly not available for private display, but here is a pitch in a similar vein.

 

 
      Narnia Grotto
Scripture
Bob is a lector at St Michael and All Angels, Observatory, Cape Town.

Reading scripture demands conviction without theatrics, a mix which a voice artist hopefully brings to every read.

 

      Romans 8. 18

      Revelations 12. 7
