About Craig Benzan

Overview

I recently completed the narration for a children's audiobook with my 4 year old daughter doing the main character's voice - really cute, and response has been phenomenal!

Service Description

Whether for Narration, Commercials, Promos, Education or Corporate projects, I have a voice that is at once natural, warm, authoritative and relaxed. My voice is Believable, Trustworthy, Sincere, Authoritative yet Conversational, Friendly, Dynamic, Professional, Powerful, Energetic, Reliable, and Relatable.

I work hard to understand the text to make sure I'm delivering the best, most effective read. I speak with confidence and clarity, and I understand how cadence and pace help in making your script relatable, understandable and memorable.

I also love to dig deep into character work, whether comedic or dramatic, fleshing out characters that are consistent, detailed and well considered. If you have a character in mind, chances are I can bring it to life, and I would be honored to do so.

With my long history of audio production in music and voice work and my high standards for quality, I'm able to provide professionally produced and edited audio files in whatever format you need, processed or unprocessed.

My voice is suitable for Television, Radio, Documentaries, Business & Educational, Audiobooks and any kind of Narration.

I'm also able pronounce complex words with ease, making my voice suitable for even the most challenging texts, such as medical or technical training.

Providing fantastic service is a priority for me, and I strive to build lasting, collaborative relationships with clients. I pride myself on my easy going professionalism, and I work hard to make sure all my clients feel absolutely delighted with the final product.

Experience

I have voiced Corporate, educational & promotional narration; e-learning; character work; and audiobooks

I have solid experience in scriptwriting, marketing and copywriting, which gives me added insight into how scripts should be delivered.

In addition, I have appeared in several short films and have a long history in acting and improvisation. My training in both is ongoing. I love character work and diving deep into the inner workings of any character I play.

And my past experience as a teacher at a technical institution, where I also received many commendations from students for the clarity of my teaching, informs how I read educational and narration text.

I also have an extensive technical background, with strong experience in video and audio editing, as well as website development and graphic design. This technical expertise means I deeply understand how the files I provide will be used on a technical level, and I have a genuine appreciation of those who do such work. This understanding allows me to prepare and deliver any media required in a given project the right way the first time.

Testimonials

I worked with Craig continuously for several months, during which time he created the audiobook versions of my two books: Free Your Mind and The Caterpillar that Became Enlightened. His level of professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched, converting each project's journey into a joyous experience. He communicated with me every step of the way, keeping me informed as each project progressed. I was delighted that he shared ideas to help improve the final product and he was clearly emotionally invested in the success of the project beyond his completion. I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with Craig and am excited for our future projects together. I would highly recommend Craig Benzan to anyone in search of high quality voice acting or voiceover needs.
