Award Winning Hollywood Movie Opening Monologue? Eyeborgs, yes please!

It’s not every day you get the call to voice the international opening monologue to an award winning Hollywood movie, but when that call comes, you’d better be ready!

Ahem… OK… actually, it wasn’t a call, but an email from the producer, John Rushton, who wanted a British voice over for the introduction of the new sci-fi movie, Eyeborgs starring Adrian Paul (from Highlander) and produced by Crimson Wolf Productions.

Here it is – whether you like sci-fi or not, see what you think…


The brief called for  “… a BBC narrator, reporter-type of voice. Official, breaking news, inform-the-world kind of voice…” and after a reasonably quick audition and a couple of takes I think we managed to get the right tone and pace required.

A story synopsis, courtesy of The Internet Movie Database:

Following another major terrorist attack the US instigates an intense government surveillance program in which every camera in the country is linked into a single, all-seeing network called the ODIN system (for Optical Defense Intelligence Network). The system includes millions of mobile, robotic surveillance cameras known as “Eyeborgs,” which watch everyone for suspicious behaviour, all in the name of security, law enforcement and keeping America safe. An agent for the Department of Homeland Security grows suspicious of the system after a series of odd murders in which the physical evidence doesn’t match up to what the video records show. Now he must work outside the system to find out who is really controlling the Eyeborgs. With the help of a broadcast journalist and a purple haired Punk Rocker who turns out to be the President’s nephew, he must stop a plot to assassinate the President during the final debate of the election.

We were fortunate enough to get some great reviews and win some awards – so I hope you enjoy the movie! 🙂
