READ THIS NEXT PART, BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOU. You are the pilot of your project, and John is your co-pilot. You are more invested in your project than anyone else which is why it's important for you to work with top quality, highly qualified, and dependable people. That's why John is here to make your job easier and to assist with whatever you need. Moreover, he has spent hundreds of hours studying, practicing, and breaking down commercial and narration copy (a rarity among other talent) with well-known, top VO coach, casting director, and agent Nancy Wolfson. With that in mind, he is more than capable of flying this thing himself if you are unsure about what you need from the voice over in terms of delivery, style, and other factors.

On top of that, he has meticulously put together an audio engineer approved recording space. He has an isolated, acoustically treated sound booth designed specifically for recording voice overs. He is also capable of producing, editing, formatting, and delivering top quality professional recordings in any file format with his recording software and studio setup.

HEADS UP: John's voice is VERY IN right now. Just ask Nancy Wolfson. Seriously. Ask her. She wants you to. Find her on Twitter @NancyWolfson.

#### Voice description: Very contemporary, millennial, hip, fresh, laid back, generation Y (gen Y), textured, emotional, wry, sarcastic, friendly, believable, 20-something, hipster, and authentic (early 20's to mid 30's)

That sound is perfect for targeting the most coveted target consumer demographic (18 to 35 ). He's also able to really get into the copy because he is targeting his very own peers. His voice is also very in demand for projects targeted at older audiences, like baby boomers, to create that hip and knowing edge

Hidden piece of information

Hopefully, this will put you at ease knowing that you are working with someone who works very hard in all aspects of life. John's studies and research in psychology have given him valuable tools to really dig deep and find out what really makes people tick. This helps him to pry open the vault that is your audience's psyche and really get them to react to your script.

Service Description

John Lano is a highly in demand professional voice over actor with his own studio. Your audience will get goosebumps and react appropriately to whatever script John voices. This comes from years of rigorous voice over performing and training as well as an undergraduate degree in psychology (graduated 4th in his entire class). With those skills, John can get into the minds of your audience members to get them to react just the way you want them to (but only if how you want them to react is good for them). This kind of ability is why they call him the Voice Over Genie. Visit (Website hidden) to get your audience to react the right way.


Narration For Travel Channel National Television Series

I had the pleasure of hiring John Lano to be the narrator of two recent series which ran on The Travel Channel. I recommend John highly for any production looking for a young, energetic, expressive voice talent. He was very willing to give the script several different “reads” and was extremely accepting of coaching to get us the exact style we were looking for. He handled difficult pronunciations exceptionally well, and even with the hardest of foreign names John was spot-on, closely following our pronunciation guide. In addition to his great-sounding voice, John was a consummate professional. He was early for every recording session, stayed as long as it took to get through the scripts, which tended to run long since each program was an hour. John was also very willing to make narration changes on the fly when the producer asked for those and did not hesitate to ask questions when were unclear about our instructions or needs.

As an added bonus, John was able to record pick-up track from his home studio which delivered a very high quality voice over. That saved our company time and money by not having to do those additional recordings in the main studio, and the narration from his home system blended in perfectly with the rest of the recording.

I hope to hire John Lano again in the near future and recommend him to others looking for a professional narrator for either short commercial projects or longer broadcast / web ones.
