Experience

I'm blessed to have voiced thousands of promos, commercials, campaigns, concert spots, tags, imaging liners, etc. My career includes 20+ years of on-air experience for national (Air1 Network) and large-market (103.5 QMFM) radio stations as well as on-camera experience hosting "What's Trending" during CTV News at Noon (Bell Media, Vancouver).

Credentials

Education

I've done my homework (seminars, critiques, books, etc), but EXPERIENCE has been my best education. As my career progressed and the audience became larger, the 'announcer' in me had to become smaller. Over time, a theme emerged... 'Hey Mike, wanna try voicing this?' became 'would you mind doing this one too?' and ultimately 'we need you to voice this Mike' or 'the client requested you again!' I believe that any "success" I have had so far is because I want to forever remain a student, always learning and practicing one of the hardest things as a performer - the art of authenticity. Or, at least the art of SOUNDING authentic. ;)

Service Description

I am a full-time voice-over actor working daily from my pro grade home studio in a custom, quiet vocal-booth constructed with industry standard products (OC703, Green Glue, etc) to deliver network-ready voiceovers regardless of budget size. Unless there is an earthquake, my noise floor is approximately -62 db. During a quake it'd probably be -60. :)

    / 5 Sharon Cortissos for Job #223507 Online video for Ninja Warrior For our Pattex facebook commercial Mike had to play an overenthusiastic sports commentator. He did a great job, not only because of his great sound, but also because of his dedication en professional attitude. A difficult job to make it credible, but he delivered exactly what we needed. 5 stars!

    / 5 Grant Morris for Job #222840 Employee Hype Video Mike was fantastic to work with. His turnaround time was stellar, within 24 hours, and he delivered beyond expectations. We were provided multiple takes, each one different in it's own way, but still in line with our needs, giving us numerous usable options, which was much appreciated! Revisions were offered graciously, but were completely unnecessary since he nailed it on his first try. He truly made our job easy, which is why we would HIGHLY recommend him and his talent, and are sure to use him again in the future. Thank you, Mike!!!

    / 5 Ian Corry for Job #222215 Keynote Speaker Intro / Sizzle Reel WOW!! Mike was the perfect man for the Job. He's up for anything, very professional, and delivers a memorable performance. We skyped for the Recording session, and not only did he make the experience quite enjoyable for me as a client, I also had a crystal clear audio feed from the studio, which made it very easy to give direction and feel confident about what was being captured. If you're on the fence, like I often am when auditioning several talented people, go with Mike Shaeffer. 5 Stars. Will Hire Again!
