Service Description

My extensive experience at the mic has exposed me to some of the great Actors & Directors of my time. Working on Feature Film ADR has exposed me to some creative giants during their finalization process as I assist in voicing essential elements of the creative team's vision. Sometimes having to revoice another Actor's performance as a mimic or as a replacement has given me extraordinary skills in vocal matching and in capturing the timing and nuance of another's performance, both visually and audibly.

My creative ideas are absolutely fresh and often a refreshing surprise to my clients...

I look forward to sharing my flow with you and your team...

Testimonials

The help I received from Michael Barbera for the narration of my fundraising video was essential in it's success. I even had people tell me that because of the work Rosco did they actually increased their original intended donation amount. So I quickly raised my goal of $15,000!!! Michael understood the needs of the YouCaring.com site and of the audio quality required. Thanks Michael!

The Help Martin! Foundation

A thoroughly exhilarating evening of theatre he has created here. Watch this man, Michael Barbera!

Steven Berkoff, East Productions

“From the moment he takes the stage and begins the weirdly rhythmic and quirky banter as Dent, a superintendent with a burgeoning sexual conscience, you know you're ​in safe hands.”

- ​Lucy Powell, Time Out London

"A British and American dual-citizen and an AMAZINGLY VERSATILE voice guy!"

Sondra James Weil, Speakeasy ADR (Mortdecai, Alpha House, Royal Pains)

I've been working with him for over a decade and have never been let down. Great character voices and really receptive to direction. We've got him in countless game titles in every possible role you can imagine. I'm quite happy to lend my endorsement to such a strong, reliable and easy going talent.
