Toby captured what we wanted in one take. He was fast and professional at every step. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Steve Newberry, TopicSimple.com

Toby provided a very professional service, fast turnaround and a fantastic delivery in his voice over for our animation.

Joel Somerfield, Thisisorder.com

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the work you did on Leaders' Map. It was great - just the right tone and feel for the video and the App!

John Greenway, Leader's Map

"I want to say that we found your performance nuanced and strong ... you are good at intuiting the correct delivery and characterization ..."

Anthony Rotolo, Rocket Ride Books

We had the pleasure of using Toby Ricketts voice over service for one of our multi national clients. The service was prompt and reasonably priced, the communication was clear and in time. The result was "a happy client". thanks Toby, we look forward to working with you again.

Zar Sydney Video Productions

We worked with Toby on a national New Zealand campaign for Car Take Back and were so impressed with his work, we signed him straight up to our own voice bank. Maple Street Studios are very excited to work with Toby on numerous jobs in the future. A great voice and an impressively speedy turnover make for a very happy production company!

Maple Street Studios (London)

I auditioned around 40 different people for a voiceover, but Toby was the only one who truly seemed to "get it." He embraced the spirit of the piece, and it really set his work above the rest. Not only that, but he was quick to deliver the final product and fantastic to work with along the way. I would enthusiastically recommend him for your voiceover needs!

Mills Media

Responsible, qualified, and fast. Our 46 minute long documentary film is narrated by Toby. His beautiful narration fits our film perfectly which we are proudly showing to our clients (Newcom, General Electric, Leighton). Now he is top of our voice talent list. Very happy to work with professionals
