Question: What do Domestos, beef jerky, Pepsi and gerbils have in common?

December 15, 2010

Answer: They make a very interesting (but lumpy) cocktail? No! They’re all commercials voiced by me. The Domestos commercial was great fun and the animator, Tristan Prior, was a real talent. The brief was to make the dialogue a spoof of all the famous movie battle speeches such as William Wallace from Braveheart and Aragon […]

“My Choice” – A Short Poem & Animation About Assisted Suicide

November 2, 2010

I have voiced some strange and fascinating projects over the years, from the voice of the talking signs for Police forces and hospitals throughout the UK to that of an animatronic wax work fisherman in the Swedish Naval Museum. This latest project definitely falls into the latter category of ‘fascinating.’ I was initially approached by […]

My favourite audiobook – Scribbles & Friends Imagination Blanket Series: “The Violin’s Magical Melody”

September 2, 2010

When I was asked to voice the audiobook version of The Violin’s Magical Melody back in March, I didn’t realise it would become such a worldwide phenomenon – well, for 4-8 year-old readers anyway. I don’t always accept every audiobook that comes my way but when I first read the script for this one, I […]

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

July 11, 2010

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!

VOX 2010 – It’s That Crazy Time of Year Again!

May 10, 2010

“Wow – nice hotel!”  Was my first thought after travelling to the Midlands, with my voice over colleague Lindsay Abbott, to VOX 2010. It was Saturday the 9th May and we were there to party all night. The Barceló Hinckley Island Hotel was far too posh for the likes of me but nevertheless, after being […]

Stephen Fry: “…pure, undiluted pleasure and friendship…” That’ll be Listening Books!

February 20, 2010

I have been working with Listening Books since 2006 and always enjoy my visits to their underground recording studios at Lant Street, South London. There is definitely a sense of ‘standing on the shoulders of giants’ when looking at the wall of fame next to the editing suite and I always feel privileged to have […]

MadBid.com – it’s TOTALLY MAD!!! (The Voice Behind The MadBid Commercials)

October 22, 2009

Working with the MadBid Team is a fantastic experience. The brief for this one was to sound as much like the brilliant, lantern-jawed actor, Patrick Allen as possible (now sadly deceased). Patrick appeared in many great British films but will probably be best remembered for his amazing voice overs in the commercials for Barratt Homes […]

The Real McCoy’s…? (www.McCoys.co.uk)

September 24, 2009

Producing the voice files for the McCoy’s Man Crisps website campaign was great fun. The initial brief was to sound ‘a bit like’ a friendly Phil Mitchell (from EastEnders) but keeping in step with the TV campaign. Here is a short compilation of some of the original audios: I was delighted with the first set […]
