As a voice-over talent it goes without saying that Heike is as good as it gets. But her professional contribution far exceeds capability. Producing a foreign language program is especially challenging when we don’t speak the language. We rely heavily on the talent to assist with the script, pronunciation, etc.Tribeca Audio
Suffice to say, when you’re recording German you want Heike: utterly professional and always the first to help, to make my job that much easier. Heike regularly volunteers to assist far beyond the call.
In the ten years I’ve known Heike I have only experienced cooperation, warmth, genuine concern not only for the program we’re working on but for her peers as well. Heike is as gracious to her fellow performers as she is to everyone.
Heike is a true professional, and a rare talent. We depend on actors who are able to readLiving Language, Randomhouse
our scripts with energy and enthusiasm, and we couldn't ask for anyone better than Heike.
She's also a pleasure to work with. She takes direction very well and keeps everyone in the
studio smiling. She's really made a great contribution to our German language programs,
and we look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.
Whenever I see Heike’s name on my daily talent schedule, I know that I’m in for a real treat. She is so positive,CKP Media
so upbeat and so professional. She can read life into the most boring script. And on the rare occasion that she
doesn’t nail the line the first time, she’ll keep reading until it’s perfect. By far, she is one of my favorite talents
Heike, thank you so very much! I can't possibly imagine working with someone more knowledgeable, talented, positive and passionate as you are. It was a true pleasure when you were here at the studio. The only troubling thing is that all other sessions will pale in comparison without your presence! And that is truly no joke.John Marshall Media
I would hire Heike again in a heart-beat! She was a dream to work with, and I've worked with a lot ofHooked on Phonics
talent over the years. We needed over a full week of tedious, phonics-accurate voice-over in German, and she delivered perfect reads. We were able to skip 2nd or 3rd takes on most of our dialog which saved us huge time and money; and her stamina was impressive, keeping up energy even when we had to go over our 4-hour blocks a few times.
She took direction exceedingly well, and even had to read in tempo to a click track for a large chunk of it. It all had to be natural and kid-friendly, and she gave us exactly what we needed. Very acrobatic
needs for voice-over, and boy, were we lucky to have found Heike. Our reviewers in Germany were
particularly picky and she satisfied even them.
In addition to all the above (and it's not an exaggeration in the slightest), she was charming, funny, and easy-going, on top of an impressive work ethic. She went above and beyond to help us create what turned out to be a fantastic product.
