About Michael Barbera

Overview

An extremely dynamic voice with notable range and numerous authentic accents. British born, American raised. London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, New Orleans have all been home to me at some point. My extensive travels have given my ear the uncanny ability to voice-match many soundalikes. Thousands of jobs over 20+ years in all manner of media; Video Games (Killzone 2, Viet Cong, Witcher...), Loop Group (Batman Begins, Band of Brothers, James Bond...), Commercials (Budweiser, Virgin, ATT, Lego International...), AudioBooks (Audible, ACX), Documentary Narration (BBC, HBO, Discovery...), Animation (Animé, Commercial) and so much more...
Studied with the world-renowned Katie Bull in Whole Body Voice Technique at The Atlantic Theater, NYC
Award-winning actor for both Voice-Over (Crackdown) and Stage (Cat's-Paw).

Service Description

My extensive experience at the mic has exposed me to some of the great Actors & Directors of my time. Working on Feature Film ADR has exposed me to some creative giants during their finalization process as I assist in voicing essential elements of the creative team's vision. Sometimes having to revoice another Actor's performance as a mimic or as a replacement has given me extraordinary skills in vocal matching and in capturing the timing and nuance of another's performance, both visually and audibly.

My creative ideas are absolutely fresh and often a refreshing surprise to my clients...

I look forward to sharing my flow with you and your team...

Testimonials

The help I received from Michael Barbera for the narration of my fundraising video was essential in it's success. I even had people tell me that because of the work Rosco did they actually increased their original intended donation amount. So I quickly raised my goal of $15,000!!! Michael understood the needs of the YouCaring.com site and of the audio quality required. Thanks Michael!
-Martin Masters of The Help Martin! Foundation

The Help Martin! Foundation

A thoroughly exhilarating evening of theatre he has created here. Watch this man, Michael Barbera!

Steven Berkoff, East Productions

“From the moment he takes the stage and begins the weirdly rhythmic and quirky banter as Dent, a superintendent with a burgeoning sexual conscience, you know you're ​in safe hands.”

- ​Lucy Powell, Time Out London
