Highlights

@msaundersvo

Michael Saunders is an experienced, creatively adept voice-over talent with one overarching goal: to bring genuine, relatable warmth to client projects!

As a home-studio equipped FULL-TIME voice talent, he has the flexibility to meet the strictest of deadlines.

National or international. 24 hour (and often, same day) turnaround on mixed down, production ready audio files is his standard metric.

Ego-less and very directable, can-do attitude.

SCRIPT INTERPRETATION SKILLS + PIPES GO BEST WITH...

-Impactful, authoritative corporate presentations that either provide business data, sales information and/or a clear and compelling call to action

-Controlled technical, medical and industrial narration

-Unaffected (natural), upbeat commercial scripts that require a conversational, everyman sensibility. Think: "Howdy neighbor! Man o' Man, lawn sure looks great...beer?"

-Educational media, e-Learning, training videos

-Rugged "spec heavy" scripts that appeal to the tactically talented (police, military, security), gear-heads, truck guys/gals and outdoor sports enthusiasts. Michael can also do an intense gritty "gravel tone" when the script requires it.
