Experience

I've owned and operated Aliso Creek Productions in Burbank near Los Angeles California since 1987. We write, cast, produce and direct radio commercials and industrial audio and also do specialized music production.

Before that I was a Director of Marketing for Beckman which is a large Electronics and Medical Instrumentation Company so I was the honcho of a client company and worked with ad agencies and production companies in that capacity. Thus I have worked as a talent on one side of the glass and as a director and a client on the other. This gives me an excellent perspective on interpreting the copy in both an artistic and commercial way.

I've taught voice-overs at the Aliso Creek Voice Over Workshop since 1994 and have hundreds of students in the business.

I also worked as a Rock and Roll singer early on... And somewhere in there I got a degree in Philosophy from UCLA.

Service Description

I run my own studio so my recordings are top quality and I thoroughly understand all things computer such as uploading, file conversion, sample formats, sample rates, AIFF, WAV, MP3, bit rates, etc. And I understand audio such as phone patch, ambient sound, signal to noise ratio, headroom, compression, limiting, normalizing, mic technique, proximity effect, CDs etc. So you get excellent recordings and the files like you want them when you want them.

I worked in the electronics and chemical and medical instrumentation industries so I'm not afraid of big words like Deoxyribonucleic acid or MicroFarad but I might have a bit of trouble with pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis... well, maybe not.

I'm easy to work with, creative, fun, serious, professional and reliable. And I go the distance to make sure you and your clients get what you want and what you need.

And, yes, my mother really did name me William Williams.
