Testimonials

John, the demo sounded so great we didn't need any changes. i tell ya, i got a ton of responses for that one but its so hard i guess for voiceover guys to get away from the "voiceover" thing and do something less structured, almost a character. your demo hit the mark exactly and help the video win 3 Addy awards so far.

John,
I am extremely pleased with your performance so far. I wouldn't think of having anyone else record the Quixote. The narration is as close to perfection as possible.
