About Alaina Wis

Overview

Surprisingly versatile; unbelievably swift. Just ask my clients – Amazon, Google, Visa, Estée Lauder, Tommy Hilfiger, Macy's, PepsiCo, Costco, Deloitte, Cisco, and Walmart. My voice has been used in several national commercials, and is the identifying sound of several companies, including Inspirato, Podium, and Quantum Photonics. Make sure to hit the ♥ button on any demos you like, so you can come back and find me any time! For your narrations, my voice can be warm, inspirational, and inviting. For commercials, upbeat, urgent, and enticing. And for presentations, smooth, clear, engaging, and professional. My voice has been described as conversational, authentic, and like a girl-next-door in one moment – but cinematic, emotive, and rich in the next.

Does your smartphone app require a voice that is attractive, tempting, seductive, and enticing? Or does your B2B video need to sound matter-of-fact, straightforward, and casual? Maybe you have a medical explainer or technical video with lots of tricky terms – I'll be a knowledgeable, authoritative, trustworthy voice. On the contrary, if you've got a Spotify or Pandora ad targeted at millennials, I'll be sure to bring a cool, relatable, fresh tone with a slight vocal fry to the table.

My voice has been compared against Julie Andrews in one breath, and Kristen Bell as the voice of Gossip Girl in the next. I've been told I embody the confidence of Charlize Theron and Elizabeth Banks, and the slight raspy seduction of Scarlett Johansson.

I have a flair for comedy, and have been pegged as an Amy Poehler or Sarah Chalke type. I also have a knack for imitating the snide, sarcastic styles of Chelsea Peretti and Aubrey Plaza. I also excel at voice matching and imitation. Ask me about my Disney Princess and character voices, such as Belle, Ariel, Megara, Rapunzel, Elsa, and Yzma. More of my character work can be heard in Big Fish Games' Haunted Legends 13: Twisted Fate and Redemption Cemetery 12: Day of the Almost Dead, as well as Domini Games' Dark Romance 11: Ethereal Gardens (Collector's Edition), available now for Mac and PC. I can also be heard as the voice of Emma Hardy in the popular mobile game, Black Survival, and in the upcoming update to viral hit Mobile Legends: Bang Bang as the new voice of Hilda.

Service Description

Hey there! Here are some things that you can expect from working with me:

DELIVERY TIME: I'm known for turning projects around quickly – ask me about same-day delivery! (If you require a live session, see below for options for that.)

REVISIONS: Your delivery includes one version up front, and one round of artistic edits (i.e. variation in pace or tone) if needed. Further artistic edits (full re-records of the script) will come at a charge of 50% of the project fee for EACH version.

PICKUPS: If I make a pronunciation mistake or leave out a word, I will of course correct this free of charge. Short pickups or script additions (75 words or less) will come at no charge. If the pickup is longer than 75 words, there will be a fee of $0.50 per word. If you require a full re-record, see above (revisions).

LIVE SESSIONS: I am available for live sessions through Source Connect Standard, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or traditional phone call at a time that you and I can determine together. Session fees are $100 per hour or $50 per half hour on top of the project fee.

I have privately coached in both voiceover and business building with some of the best in the business, and I am constantly upskilling to stay on top of current industry trends. My most valuable training has come from my nearly 1000 career lifetime projects, and the feedback I've gained from each and every client. I also hold my BFA in Musical Theatre from The University of the Arts, where I acquired training in dialects, voice and speech, the International Phonetic Alphabet, character work, and script analysis.
