About tom fairfoot
Tom Fairfoot is an award winning British Voice Artist and Actor living and woking in Johnannesburg for over 16 years and has been working professionally in the industry in the UK and then SA for over 30 years. Voicing many global top brand campaigns, documentaries, TV channels such as Mnet locally and National Geographic globally.

\"Over 30 years in an industry on two continents. I have a great perspective of the Advertising World. When a client uses my voice for a few years or even a few months and then switches to another voice. Some people ask if it worries me. It really doesn't. It's about trends and simply people wanting to hear a different voice, no matter how good you think you are. It isn't an industry for people with rejection issues. LOL. Advertising constantly moves through various trends, what is cool, what works, and what do people want. And of course advertising agencies telling you what you want. I have done enough varied car commercials to see how that works.
What is also true is that if a product or even style of delivery or even acting style looses it's appeal, then it means it has lost it's truth and it's genuine message or appeal to connect with that current audience. If it keeps it's genuine intention, truthful need and want to engage, then it's something people will want to stay with. A classic movie we can re-visit but it will become dated at some point. But a Brand that continues to work and in this case a Voice Artsist that is still in demad over a relatively long period of time is, in my opinion, right or wrong, simply the way in which you engage and talk to people with a truthful intent. The Point is to be adaptable to different advertsing campaigns or even corporate reads but to keep a sense of authenticity and truthful intention behind what you are saying.\"
Perhaps more notably recently in the ever increasing internet and social media advertising mediums, he has done literally hundreds of corporate communication and presentation voice overs for an incredibly diverse local and international clientele. Businesses requiring a voice for the audio visual medium whether on the internet or in-house presentations, to pitch or create in-house staff educational videos to sales teams or executives would do well to engage the services of Tom Fairfoot. His voice has an engaging, confident and international feel and is much sought after in this field. A voice that engages, communicates in a friendly yet commanding manner is a valuable commodity in the communication field for any business or advertiser.
