Sam Park for Job #197888 Voices - e-Learning Module - Indonesia Accent (or Generic Asian Accent) Incredible talent!!!Sep 19, 2016
Miguel Vieira for Job #196638 Voicer Actor Wanted to play the role of Darth Vader from the Star Wars Series in a Animated Video Stephen is a very professional and fantastic voice actor. I was having trouble finding a deep and strong voice for my character, but when Stephen presented his audition I was truly impressed and picked him right away.
Stephen began working on the project as soon as I offered him the job and completed it far before my listed deadline. He was able to make his voice fit perfectly into what I was looking for: a humanoid cyborg that still maintained an understandable level of emotion, which was no easy task. There wasn't a need to change anything with his performance, but he had already offered to change the files into multiple formats and do any necessary retakes, even without me asking. He had also already edited his performance, which ultimately makes my job much easier.
I would certainly recommend Stephen for hire, and I would very much enjoy working with him again!
