Highlights

COMMITMENT TO CUSTOMER SERVICE:
Every client receives my "Red Door Service", added benefits as important to my clients as my vocal work. I’ve run businesses, so I understand what’s at stake for my clients and how my work and my services help my clients fulfill their promises and their commitments to their clients. Each of my clientele receives my personal “Red Door Service”:

> Outstanding service delivered professionally
> Consistent fulfillment of services and commitments;
> Fast turnaround and always timely responses;
> Professional Business Practices;
> Unparalleled personal and business ethics; and,
> Focus on my clients' and their clients' satisfaction with the projects they entrust me to voice.

VOCAL DETAIL:
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 narration voice reminds them of David McCullough and the late Edward Herrmann; my promo voice almost indistinguishable from Dorian Harewood; my trailer voice booms the emotive power of the cherished late Don LaFontaine and Hal Douglas; and, yes, my commercial voice has the natural timbre to touch the suave tones and delivery of Morgan Freeman, the country-rugged essence of Sam Elliott, the everyday conversational guy in many hats and many persona, and much, much more.

So, why the "Red Door"?
The answer's on my Red Door Voice website - front page. Check it out! It's good stuff . . .

And the voice? Have a listen . . .
Plus, there's much more to come.

It's your voice for your projects.
The way you want it . . . the way you need it.

Contact me today. I'd love to work with you to make your and your client's project a commercial success.

All the best,
Doug Lane

Prior experience in these fields offers a unique skill set for my clients, providing in-depth understanding of the copy and ‘fluent’ pronunciation, inflection, and "real" delivery of complex medical, scientific, and technical material.
