Highlights

Mark has a deep, clear voice that ranges from real and intimate to powerful and ominous depending on the script. But in voice acting the ear is more important than the voice. He has the ability to hear subtle nuances that the copy calls for. A voice actor's read should be transparent because it's the message that matters. The voice should not attract any attention to itself. Mark has a great voice but, more importantly, he has a great ear.
He also has a great work ethic. He's not out to stroke his own ego but has a genuine desire to serve his clients. He has played everything from a husband, a boss, a dad and a guy next door to a surfer dude, a drill sergeant and a warm friendly announcer. Mark is an impressionist and his skills include imitating celebrities who do voice overs like Morgan Freeman, Sam Elliott, Patrick Warburton and Mike Rowe and other talents like Hal Riney, Thom Sharpe, Mark Fenske, Tom Bodett and movie trailer master Don LaFontaine. Need a scary voice for a Halloween spot? A heartfelt voice for a Veterans day spot? How about a romantic voice for a Valentine's day spot? Even Santa Claus, Mark does them all. You can reach him at 813-968-2076 or e-mail at mark@markwinston.com.

Testimonials

"The voice over work was absolutely perfect...the entire team was grateful."

Jennifer Stafford--Omni Communications

"I've worked with hundreds of voice talents over the years and Mark Winston is one of the best.
He has an immediate grasp of what a script calls for."

Dan McDonald--Cramer/Krasselt

"His ability to take direction and to deliver top quality voiceovers is astounding.
Mark's enthusiasm, professionalism and genuine willingness to please is endless....
a first class talent."

Mark Schultz--RC Productions

"His straight announcer delivery is warm, friendly and believable. He is also the Swiss Army Knife of character voices. In a business that attracts large egos, he is an anomaly."

Howard Ellis--Ellis & Diaz Advertising

"WARNING TO ALL PRODUCERS Do not, repeat DO NOT use Mark Winston as a voice talent even once. The man is so flawless, so talented, so wide of range and narrow of ego that he will absolutely spoil you for eternity."

Mary Jorn--Two Writers Productions

Mark is great. Nailed the tone we needed, and was prompt with delivery and communication. Definitely recommend!

Cornett IMS

Mark had just the right tone for our script, adding a touch of thoughtfulness and integrity. His narration really elevates the level of our productions. I look forward to working with him again soon.
