Experience

After years as a successful producer, mixer and audio engineer who dabbled in voiceovers, I now spend my time having great fun talking for a living.

I can sound like a friendly "guy next door", an authoritative, believable businessman, or a movie trailer type.

Recent radio and TV commercial projects include work for clients such as McDonalds, Little Caesars, WalMart, Travelers Insurance, Kayak.com, LG, Optimum, and Bertolli,

I also have extensive experience narrating industial and educational projects, and I have a recurring job as the voice for The World Bank Institute's educational presentations.

The series "Twist Of Fate," about survivors of weather disasters, features my narration.

Service Description

I have a fully professionally equipped studio, and as an accomplished audio engineer, I know how to achieve outstanding sound quality on my recordings and productions.

I can turn around projects very quickly, usually in a day or less. I can also add music and sound FX and mix finished spots with the kind of quality you would otherwise have to go to a high end studio to achieve.

Please feel free to email me with proposals or any questions you have. I'm happy to answer questions and provide any advice I can.

It is difficult to describe how professional and skilled Alan Varner is without engaging in hyperbole. Not only did he produce a note perfect and engaging read on subject material that is at best dry and at worst sleep inducing, but he also stepped in and did a replacement read for a different project when a different voice talent was unavailable. We plan on using Alan again in the future and we are extremely pleased with the tone, quality and production value of his work.
