Mike nailed the delivery for our web video! He was extremely flexible and brought some good suggestions to the script! We've used Mike on several projects now and look forward to a long relationship.

Mike Austin was a GREAT help in the production of our internal communications programs we produced for the public relations department or AC Rochester. His narration was dead on and it lead us to using him in several on camera segments.

Verdoni Productions

Outstanding work! Mike was very responsive and receptive to the VO. He also took the initiative to learn about the character he was portraying by doing some of his own research. He was responsive to feedback. Mike was a pleasure to work with. His VO 's were polished, professional, and really gave meaning to the VO!
