About David Vickery

Overview

Articulate. Classic. Contemporary. Freelance \"live\" announcer for national, network BBC TV.

I am a highly experienced British voice-over, having worked consistently for over 25 years in broadcast, corporate and multi-media for world recognised brands including BBC, Discovery, AETN, and Nat Geo. Not one off projects but year in, year out.

For 12 months across 2013 and 2104 I provided all (male) programme sponsorship indents for National Classic fm. I continue to provide promo support throughout 2016.

My style embraces RP nuanced to appeal to modern audiences. I deliver a versatility of reads from warm, light and frothy through to the sensitive and serious.

My approach to voice production is one that is both confident and professional. I like to think my business dealings are transparent and honest and having been a producer myself, I respect and understand what is necessary from your perspective. Working at distance, mutual trust is imperative.

Where possible, I am happy to provide bespoke demos and welcome enquiries attached to a range of budgets and requirements.

Testimonials

Over a decade of working together on many television documentaries, he has, on every occasion, given a performance that you’d struggle to find fault with. He has a voice that is both clear and precise but also appealing and a delight to listen to. His professional standards are of the highest order, but always makes the trickiest assignments seem relaxed and pleasant. …

Jenni Pozzi, Reversioning Producer, History Channel

Working with David is always a pleasure; he has an innate understanding of what we are trying to achieve, and a great ability to bring the script alive, this combined with a voice that is flexible and commands attention makes our sessions together a real treat.

Rodney Read, Freelance producer

David is a dream to work with! With the stamina that allows him to last for hours on end and a voice that requires the minimum technical attention, he allows the engineer the flexibility focus on the recording itself for a smooth running session. Unnoticeable breaths and clean page turns mean that the job of editing is very quick and straight forward too.
