About Anita Akerkar

Overview

Looking for a passionate, professional, female voice talent with a HOME STUDIO who is easy to work with, takes the time to understand the needs and wants for your project, and delivers on time? You found her! I have varied experiences in the voice over and on-camera narration field which include Documentary Films; Audiobooks; Event Host/Emcee (even Virtual ones); Nonprofit Promotional, Corporate Training and E-Learning Videos; and Radio Advertisements.

I am driven by my passion to help others whether it be through my voice over work, my family or through my nonprofit work, locally and abroad, to foster girls’ education. Whether you are telling a story, promoting a product/service, or championing a cause, you need someone who is passionate about telling your story in the way that you want it to be told for maximum impact.

How do I do this? I take the time to understand the background behind the project. This complete understanding and prep work allows me to bring the right emotion, tone and inflection to each sentence and word, from mom-next-door to corporate professional and beyond. This ensures your passion for your project comes alive. My clients tell me that I take direction well, with which I take great pride because after all, it’s YOUR project that I am bringing to life!

However, passion alone doesn’t cut it. I understand the practical nature of this business too…deadlines, script changes, quality audio, clear and responsive communication, competitive rates. Prior to my voice over career, I was a Brand Manager at consumer products company, Unilever, where I was on the client-side and valued all these elements when developing creative for my brands. SO, I know that process matters just as much as the end result!

Passion, Accountability and Quality…THAT’S ME!

Would love to hear about your next project. I look forward to a long-term relationship with you!

Testimonials

Anita recorded the voice over for a series of sales training videos that I was developing for one of Nayamode's corporate clients. She always delivered on the deadlines she set for the project which involved the prep and recording of a 10-page script for each video. The client requested minimal changes and corrections of Anita's work. Anita provided the perfect timing and tone to correspond with the videos and was invaluable in helping detect production sound quality issues when asked for her assistance. I look forward to working with Anita on the next series of these training videos. - Anna Cherkasov

Anita was recently hired to record narration for a documentary profile I produced on Lieutenant Governor Cyrus Habib for the Seattle Channel. I was very impressed with the presence and personality of her voice, and I appreciated her professionalism and enthusiasm for the project. Anita was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her for your project without reservation! - Ralph Bevins

Seattle Channel (TV Station)

My nonprofit organization was so fortunate to be able to work with Anita on a video project. Her voice is beautiful and she was exceptionally generous with her time and talent. Her feedback on the script was also very specific and valuable. The final product had a fantastic level of professionalism and polish. - Kate Cochran
