Stockholm, Stockholm, SE
Professional Swedish VO from Stockholm. Warm voice with great diction (my voice is often used for education material in swedish for immigrants or in public trains stations). Light to middle in range, but I can go deeper if required.
I do a lot of e-learning and training videos for companies and a lot of radio-commercials. I can have a lot of energy in my voiceover deliveries, which can be excellent for some upbeat commercials for big events, but also be credible and authoritative for more confident feeling. Good impersonator.
Through my background as an actor I can easily take directions from client and producers alike and I understand the importance of text interpretation and the target audience. Some of the clients I have worked for are Apple, Biltema, BRIO, BRP, Lekia, Lufthansa, HTC, Microsoft, Mäklarhuset, STC, Trafikverket (swedish train government authorities) and Tresemmé.

In 2012 I received my first voiceover job and I still remember it today. It was a national radio commercial for Lufthansa, that was going to be broadcasted in both Sweden and in Germany and I was very happy and fortunate to get the job. Starting of very slow with jobs it eventually grew til' where I am today, where it's basically my profession and where I regularly do VO-jobs every week, both from my home studio and from production studios. Through the years I have done everything from radio and television commercials, IVR, billboards, big e-learning projects, corporate web videos, speech synthesis and even some character voices. I enjoy doing voice overs and I strive all the time to educate and develop myself so I can be better. I strive of course also to have happy clients who can feel they can rely on my delivery or even for my delivery to exceed expectations. My voice can be found in major swedish media production companies such as Voicetome, Onlinevoices, TMP and 20post and I work with production companies both in Sweden and abroad.

"Benjamin har en förtroende-ingivande, skön och trygg röst, men han är också duktig på att gestalta olika karaktärer. Han är noggrann och bra på att ta regi."
"Benjamin has a credible, nice and confident voice, but he's also good at doing character voices. He is accurate in his readings and used to take directions".
Peo Drangert, Onlinevoices:
"Benjamin låter inte bara trevlig! Han läser även utmärkt och är lätt att samarbeta med!"
"Benjamin doesn't only sound good! He's also an excellent reader and easy to cooperate with!"

"Benjamin läste in stavelser i videoformat. Filmerna ska användas i min webtjänst, TrädetWeb, riktad till personer med komplicerad läsinlärning. Jag valde honom som manlig inläsare därför att hans diktion och klangfulla röst är tydlig och känns behaglig. Benjamin är ett röstproffs. Dessutom läste han in 1500 ord som också ska användas i programmet. Att han för detta ändamål har egen inspelningsutrustning av bra kvalité var en bonus. Han kunde således leverera färdiga filer i mp3 och oggformat. Bara att infoga. Benjamin har också ett trevligt bemötande och tar regi bra. Jag är helnjöd."
"Benjamin read the syllables for the training videos. The films will be used in my web service, TrädetWeb, directed to people with complex learning how to read. I choose him as the male narrator because of his diction and sonorous voice, which is clear and feels comfortable. Benjamin is a professional. In addition, he recorded 1500 words which are also to be used in the program. That he for this purpose has his own recording equipment of good quality was a bonus. He was therefore able to deliver finished files in mp3 and ogg-format. It was just for me to insert. Benjamin is also polite and nice and takes directions well. I’m very happy."

"Vi har glädjen att ha Benjamin Hagberg i vår röstbank och vi anlitar honom med nöje när tillfälle ges.
Benjamin har en behaglig och tydlig röst, han har lätt för att landa i rätt betoningar, vilket uppskattas särskilt vid inspelning av längre texter i t ex e-learningsammanhang. Det är mycket lätt att samarbeta med Benjamin och jag lämnar mina bästa rekommendationer!"
"We are pleased to have Benjamin Hagberg in our voice archive, and we engage him with pleasure when the opportunity arises. Benjamin has a pleasant and clear voice, he finds it easy to land in the right accentuation, which is appreciated especially when recording longer texts such as e-learning context. It is very easy to work with Benjamin and I leave my best recommendations!"
