    From Eric Hellinger To Carl Willis (Re: Job #142149) Carl went above and beyond in providing the vocal talent for our project. The project in question required wording to be exact and on point due to the subject. He worked closely with us to make sure each line was as it needed to be, but still managed to add his conversational flare which kept the performance from sounding "scripted". Great job and highly recommended for your company's projects.
