We appreciated the sincere, genuine presence in his voice. For a documentary which is shown at large programmes where people may only stop and watch it for a few seconds, sincerity is crucial, Vivek's voice certainly complemented. Excellent ears for detail. Professional sound quality and fast turnaround. ~Jun Shiose, Audio Visuals Engineer, Embracing the World
When we were looking for a voice for a feature-length documentary about our international charity work, we knew we wanted warmth, clarity, sobriety, gravitas and subtlety. As we are working in disaster relief and tackling many social ills, there are a lot of hard subjects and the narrator had to be able to handle these topics respectfully and without being overly dramatic. We wanted the voice to handle the topics and the individuals covered in a respectful way, capturing the depth of suffering pervading the lives of the people and communities we serve, but also allowing for an element of hope and recognition of the reality of the good work that is being done on the ground. We auditioned many narrators and were really frustrated that we couldn't find one with vocal talent and narrative skills to suit our needs -- until we found Vivek. His voice bristles with intelligence without being arrogant, and handles difficult subjects with the exact blend of grace, sobriety and hope that we were looking for all along. Vivek is also very easy to work with; in addition to being a great speaker, he is a great listener as well. Can't recommend him highly enough.Dan Marshall, Brand Manager, Embracing the World
We needed a professional male voice-over for a newly scripted 6+ minute Welcome video for nathangarnett.com. Vivek came recommended to us in our community as being an exceptional voice-over artist having a wide range of skills and overall being very easy to work with.Nathan Garnett, Nathan Garnett Consulting
After we sent the script to him he got back to us sooner than expected with a recording for us to listen to. With a few minor revisions Vivek supplied a voice-over that was consistently clean, clear, upbeat, friendly and professional; exactly what we wanted!
The completed video is now on our homepage and often receives compliments! Thanks Vivek for a job well done! We look forward to working with you again.
Vivek is a consummate professional and a true craftsman as a voice over artist. Without ego, he delivers articulate and emotive voice over work with very little instruction or direction. He simply "gets it!" In my experience, he puts the client's needs first and does whatever it takes to get the job done. Under tight deadlines and time zone challenges, he voiced a number of award video submissions for Conversant and did a fantastic job. He was a joy to work with and at a reasonable rate. I highly recommend himStacy Collins, Conversant Media
We were looking for a professional to voice our most recent video, andAmy Meyer, Conversant Media
Vivek delivered professionalism in every way. He was responsive, met our
very short deadline, applied our feedback, and delivered an excellent set
of fully produced files. Vivek was able to give a specific level
of intensity while maintaining his warm and reassuring tone. He took our
notes on pronunciation and pace (via email) and was spot on in just a
couple of takes. We highly recommend Vivek and look forward to working
with him again
