A Shane August
SHANE AUGUST is one of the most versatile voice actors in the business and is able to go from deep trailer and promo tones to the boy next door...and from an evil Lord of the Rings warlock to a tiny insect and everything in between.
Having been a student of the best in the business, including Mel Blanc, Charlie Adler and Don LaFontaine, Shane brings considerable legacy and history to the craft and that fact is reflected in the work he leaves behind.
He owns a full professional recording facility in the Los Angeles area and can deliver in any format. He is also a certified Pro Tools Master engineer and is an award-winning singer, songwriter and music producer. More information about Shane can be found at his website:

Shane's superhuman ability to duplicate almost any sound has gotten him into a small amount (okay, maybe a fair amount) of trouble over the years, but it also earned him some money and respect. Clients have used the following words to describe Shane: tall, tan, clean, hilarious, handsome, sweet-smelling, smart, honest, calming, versatile, original, brave, humble, dependable, generous, kind and limitless. He has been called a "voice over superhero" by more than a few, known to "come to the rescue" by fixing, improving, rewriting and/or replacing voice overs for clients, saving many projects over the years. One came up with the name "Voxman" for Shane's vocal superhero alter ego--the superhuman vocal range only added credibility to the moniker and it eventually stuck. But Shane doesn't mind; he has fun with it.
Shane spent his childhood in Hawai'i imitating Mel Blanc characters and all the sounds he heard around him in paradise...waves crashing...trade winds blowing...Mynah birds screeching...rental cars honking...tourists passing gas. Early on, Shane's voice over abilities were "discovered" by animation voice over legend, Charlie Adler, who encouraged Shane to stretch and develop his gift.
Voice overs have always been a big part of Shane's life, even during his extensive musical career, which allowed him to work with artists like Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton, Celine Dion and Faith Hill to name a few. Some musical collaborations provided Shane voice over opportunities through radio, commercial campaigns and TV promos.
Aside from being one of the main voices heard at Disneyland theme parks, Shane's worked with Clear Channel, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, General Mills, Kellogg's, Toyota, Ford, Southwest Airlines, (Website hidden), BMW, Chevrolet, The U.S. Postal Service, Random House, Scholastic, Hanna-Barbera, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, ESPN, Lifetime, Dreamworks, Sony, Warner Brothers, Miramax, Paramount, Universal, MGM and many others.
