Arcadeaholics LLC for Job #261033 Female British Voice Needed as "Announcer" in New Retro-Style Arcade Game

Our experience working with Louise was perfect! She was completely professional throughout the whole process. She did 200 lines of voice over for our arcade video game. She met our needs with providing multiple versions of each line in an organized manner. She was very flexible with any revisions. She took direction like a pro and really tried to understand the "character" she was portraying. Her turnaround time was incredibly fast and exceeded our expectations. She communicated with us in a timely and clear manner. She brought extra energy to our arcade game which gets plenty of voice over compliments! In addition to all of this, Louise's rate was incredibly reasonable. We would not hesitate to use her services again. Thanks Louise!
