Highlights

"Politics and Hollywood are practically the same. Politics is just Hollywood...for ugly people." --John Brislin

I am political talk show host on AM 720 KDWN in Las Vegas, broadcasting to the western United States from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific, Canada to Mexico. I originally got into politics as a backup to my acting, voiceovers, stuntwork, etc. Oh, yeah...and I went to college for it.

I have done voice-overs, MC'ing, stage acting, on camera acting, extra work, stunt work, body-doubling, radio news, as well as consulted with political organizations on communications and candidate image.

If you need help with WRITING...that can be part of my service as well.

Warm, professional sounding recording. Responsive service that helps execute your vision. You get a flexible, artistic, voice-over that keeps your needs in mind. You will be glad that you chose John Brislin.

I also give you a warrantee (see details).

My experience brings deep understanding of what your professional needs are and a clear commitment to live up to your vision. I do things because I love doing them.

On the technical side, some technical aspects I would suggest that you look for in your voice-over and standards that I adhere to are below:

VOCAL DELIVERY (Performance and Technique) –
I. Performance:
 Articulation and speech clarity appropriate to the copy
 sounds of words are present and clearly communicated
 no unnatural or distracting over-enunciation
 end of words neither dropped nor punched
 Vocal dynamics
 good use of the four voice variables (pitch, rate, volume and quality) in varying degrees to add interest to speech without creating discernible or distracting speech patterns
 Dramatic interpretation
 hitting the copy points
 effectively communicating key concepts of the copy
 exhibiting energy appropriate to the copy
 evoking emotion and mood appropriate to the copy
 Vocal style
 natural read, which is more common; or
 stylized read appropriate to the copy, e.g., when voicing an Anime character
II. Technique:
 Good breath support
 Absence of vocal tension
 Absence of mouth noise
 Delivery within natural vocal range (not straining to be higher or lower than my voice’s natural register)
 Controlled sibilance
 Controlled plosives
 Consonants not over-aspirated
 Consistent distance between mouth and mic
 Natural flow without awkward breaks
TECHNICAL DELIVERY (Quality and Technique) –
I. Quality:
 Audio level (finished work ideally delivered at or under -6dBFS)
 Noise level (absence of ambient noise. During recorded “silence,” a cumulative noise floor of -50 dBFS or less is deemed sufficient for broadcast standards)
 Room decay (reverberation, echo or ring should be below .07 sec with a decay of 85% from first test impact to a sound level at .07 sec.)
II. Technique:
 No distortion from poor mic placement or other reason
 No apparent over-processing
 No indication of overdriving the mic
 No digital clipping
 No obvious pickups
 No indication of poor or absent pop filtering

Experience

I am currently a radio talk show host on AM 720 KDWN in Las Vegas, broadcasting to the western United States.

I have done MC'ing, voice-overs, stage acting, on camera acting, extra work, stunt work, body-doubling, radio news, as well as consulted with political organizations on communications and candidate image.

My experience brings deep understanding of what your professional needs are and a clear commitment to live up to your vision. I do things because I love doing them.

"Make your vacation, your vocation." --Mark Twain

I am blessed. I have that. I am political talk show host on AM 720 KDWN in Las Vegas, broadcasting to the western United States from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific, Canada to Mexico. I originally got into politics as a backup to my acting, voiceovers, stuntwork, etc. Oh, yeah...and I went to college for it.

I found that politics and Hollywood are practically the same. Politics is just Hollywood...for ugly people. I started acting in 1993 and continued off and on, as this field goes. I suppose you could say that I got into politics in an active role around 2003. I have found the perfect hybrid in radio...acting and politics rolled into one.

Service Description

I do incredibly good work probably because of my wide-ranging experience and, most importantly, the fact that I just love doing this. Why would anybody golf if they could be doing radio and voice work!

I can deliver in any standard format. I professionally scrub each project for sound irregularities.

I offer a warrantee on my work for a period of 30 days from time of my delivery of completed work. Should something be spoken incorrectly such as names and places, I will be happy to make that correction. However, this does not include script changes. Please make sure that the script that I pour my heart into is the final draft. My experience has shown me that this is always the most fair method, so I do it this way. Experience matters!

Testimonials

John Brislin is classic. He has saved me twice the money that I paid for his service. When the final product was done I would have paid double what I did for the project and then would have bragged to my friends. I have referred my friends to John and I have been nothing but proud of that referral. John's consulting and advice was invaluable. His advice, writing, time and cost savings that he added to the project even beyond the simple voice-over was so appreciated.

Choose John for your business and you will feel what its like to work with someone that cares about YOU!
