About Bill Yontz
Characters and Styles:
I can deliver a variety of engaging voice styles depending on the needs of your project. My natural, conversational voice is usually described as warm, deep and resonant and I'm comfortable delivering character styles raging from authoritative and reassuring to upbeat and friendly to darkly sinister.
Flexible, authentic, versatile and most importantly, dependable! With a broad linguistic background developed over years of study and living abroad, I provide fluent, unaccented commercial narration in Standard American English, Parisian French, Northern (Chtimi/Piccardi) French, Spanish (North and Central American) and Farsi.Read More
I began my commercial career while still in high school, working on campaign ads for a state senatorial candidate. Over the next few years I worked on a lot of political campaign commercials and Public Service Announcement campaigns both on camera and behind the scenes in post-production. During my college years I worked at a series of radio stations doing station imaging, interviews and on-air DJ work. This was in the days when we were still "spinning vinyl" and my early radio gigs spanned the transition from obnoxious announcer DJ style that was popular from the 1950w through the late 70s, to the more laid back conversational style that eventually (and thankfully) became the norm for FM radio stations.
Upon moving to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s I realized that in order to be competitive in this market I needed to develop my voice acting skills. I learned that understanding story development and character motivation was crucial to delivering a believable performance, whether I was auditioning for a commercial spot, an e-learning course or an explainer video.
Many acting and voice acting classes over the years
Ongoing enhancement of my skills through course work, commercial and animation voiceover workout groups
Bill was a pleasure to work with. We worked on a commercial video with Bill at a studio in Burbank with our marketing executive, our attorney and a director. Everyone had different direction for the poor guy but Bill was unflappable. It was evident he had done this before! We appreciated his professionalism and his willingness to take direction from multiple stakeholders. We will absolutely reach out to him for our next project.MacArthur St. James
