Service Description

My voice? So glad you asked!

Need a CHARACTER? I run the gamut from animated pencils to 12-foot demons; from Australian media moguls and mustachioed Irish villains to Russian generals and Lebanese weapon smugglers. Character work is my bread-and-butter... and I'm always looking for a new challenge!

What about a COMMERCIAL? My styles include deep-pitched, fatherly reads, high-energy sales pitches and smart promotional deliveries with a nod toward the technology-minded!

Got a CORPORATE NARRATION project? My corporate work has included software tutorials, award ceremony presentations, branding campaigns, full-length marketing projects, training modules and trade show promotional videos.

Oh! An AUDIOBOOK, you say? I'm an experienced narrator and in-depth character creator in the audiobook field, having produced fully-narrated readings as well as collaborations with full-cast recordings on larger projects.

For further details on my voice give my demo reels a listen, read some testimonials from my satisfied clients and/or send me a message!

Cameron Granger ~ Trigger Entertainment, "LEGO Ultra Agents"

Reshama Deshmukh ~ The Candlestick Company, www.stackingbooks.com

Lucas
Thanks so much for the very quick work. I think it's perfect. It's always possible my in-house client will want some kind of alteration--if so I'll be sure to let you know. But as best as I can tell, I think we can call this done.
Thanks again

Lucas delivered the script quickly and to a very high standard. He clearly took the time to read all of the character's background, and understood the character well before he began. He understood what I was trying to convey in each line and ensured that his dialogue delivered that. He delivered the lines the way I would have delivered them myself, if I was capable of doing so. He was communicative and helpful throughout, and made sure that the dialogue was organised, in the right format and easy to work with. I hope to be working with him again soon.
