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.
