I have a home studio, so I can easily record, edit, and compose/finalize same-day if urgent.
I can do corporate, educational, trailer, character voices, re-dub/voice dub, impersonations, cartoons, and song parodies (if you provide the music and have the rights to the music).
"Neil is a pleasure to work with, he always shows up early and ready to go. We've used him for three projects now and my clients keep requesting him. When we can't meet in person, he is very accommodating to record from his home studio and re-record anything that our clients may request last minute. -A real pleasure to work with." -Andy Heck, Heck Films - Owner and OperatorHeck Films
