About Douglass Lane
Industry professionals describe my voice as, "A big voice, rich and resonant. His vocal range spans from your user friendly, everyday guy-up-the-street to the sophistication of a Park Avenue executive. His voice is commanding without being imposing and as comfortable as your favorite arm chair: you will want to curl up with his textured tones. Long-form narration and documentary material are decidedly 'in his wheelhouse'. With his wealth of experience, long phrases and complicated words are delivered with knowledge and assurance."
The voice over pros whom I know and respect the most say my narrations remind them of industry icons David McCullough and the late Edward Herrmann; my promo voice delivers like Dorian Harewood; my trailer voice reminiscent of the emotive power of the cherished late Don LaFontaine and Hal Douglas; and, my commercial voice resonates a natural timbre to touch the suave tones and sophisticated deliveries of Morgan Freeman, the country-rugged essence of Sam Elliott, and the everyday conversational guy down the street in many hats and with many persona, and much, much more.
So, why the "Red Door"?
I've been to the UK a couple of times and was always amazed at the 'bespoke' shops in and around Bond Street and the Mayfair district in London. The best of the best all seemed to have that special Red Door. I asked one of the shopkeepers once, 'Why the red door?'. What he said to me was perfect, "Mate, you can't hide behind a red door, can you? You've got to be good . . . the best!" When thinking of a name for my voice-over business that shopkeeper's words kept ringing true. It's what I want and strive for with every one of my cherished clients, from the $100 tags to the multiple $thousand$ of dollar$ project$: "to be . . . the best!".
