Highlights

30+ years professional voice-over, dynamic range, pro studio.

Simply stated, if you're looking for an experienced male voice talent with great range, excellent acting chops and superb, professional service, Todd is about as good as it gets in the world of non-union voice-over.

Todd has spent more than three decades behind the microphone, making funny voices in small, padded rooms. Chances are you've already heard Todd's voice....somewhere. Perhaps it was as the narrator for How Machines Work on Discovery Channel, a Coca-Cola or General Motors ad on the radio, a spot for Panasonic televisions during the last winter Olympic Games.....or maybe it was the friendly voice on an automated telephone message from your gas company giving you the bad news your service was cut off......

But let's not go there......

With an insane amount of experience and a vocal age range from 18-45 male, Todd Schick has lent his voice to almost every format imaginable; thousands of radio and television commercials & promos, hundreds of television documentary programs, extensive animation work, imaging, e-learning and thousands of corporate narration projects. In addition to an extensive background in broadcasting, Todd is also an accomplished actor, bringing those skills to the studio and applying them to the world of voice-over.

Todd's most recent accomplishment was having his voice heard coast-to-coast in Canada as the National Brand voice for the Global Television Network from 2006 - 2012. Everyday for six years, he recorded promos for the Simpsons, House, NCIS, The Good Wife...all the promo content befitting a successful national television network...not to mention hundreds upon hundreds of bumpers, liners and tags.

He has often been regarded as "The hardest working VO guy in Canada" and is credited with having invented the business model of a home-based voice talent recording studio delivering audio via the internet - an occupation now enjoyed by thousands of aspiring voice talent.

Todd was one of the first voice artists on the Internet back in the day when Yahoo! was in its infancy, circa 1995. As a result of his website's renowned reputation for providing relevant information on the art of voice-over, now enjoys a Page #1 ranking on Google under many search terms associated with voice talent and the VO Industry. Roundly regarded as one of the most comprehensive websites on the internet for voice talent, it boasts some 100+ pages of content related to the voiceover industry - much of the content he has personally recorded.

As an extension of his acquired experience, Todd is now a much sought-after consultant; working with semi-pros and pros to sharpen their skills, tune their product and shape their vocal brand.

Testimonials

5 days a week, week after week, month after month; from animated comedies to murder and mayhem, the National voice of Global Television needs to deliver every day. Consistency, vocal range and reliability are a must....but to do it with good humor and enthusiasm is Todd's special gift.

Brian Neal, Director, The Creative Agency, Shaw Media Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"You can't go wrong with Todd in the booth. Great character voices, stellar corporate reads, he has an amazing range and always hits the mark spot on."

Bill Nygren, Creative Director, Boom Sonic Branding Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

"Todd has become my go-to man whenever I need that extra 'something special' from a V.O. artist. Having launched a few channels in Asia with the help of Todd's voice, I can say that Todd's own recording facilities, file delivery, and personal professionalism are top-notch. And if you ever need a voice as specific as, "a curmudgeonly peg-legged old pirate with a dry hacking cough being attacked by a hot air balloon filled with ninjas", Todd will nail it, usually within the first two takes....."

Jayson Chan, Turner Broadcasting Hong Kong, China

"In our search for a new imaging voice, we were looking for someone who didn't just compliment the BOB radio brand but captured the spirit of BOB. A guy you'd hang out with, share a beer with and laugh at life with. Todd Schick is BOB! Our radio station is extremely active with imaging and Todd never lets us down. He's accommodating, versatile and flexible with both his turnaround time and vocal delivery. Geez Todd! Im getting misty here! It's truly been a pleasure to work with such a pro!

Al Smith Program Manager, 93.9 BOB FM Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

"Todd has become our male voice talent cum laude. I have many good things to say about his talent and his consummate professionalism, but in the end, for us, the success of our voice campaigns is based on what resonates with our clients' customers. And Todd has that special kind of appeal that brings a script to life and makes regular folks want to listen - and that's very hard to find. "

The SoundBite Team, Soundbite Communications Burlington, MA, USA

"The thing that immediately strikes you about Todd is how non-announcer he is - and I mean that in the best way - for those who know the difference between a voice talent and a voice actor"

- Tim Underwood, thewebvoice.com Bend, Oregon, USA

"I have to say Todd; I am blown away by the speed with which you have delivered, the quality of the production and the overall experience of having dealt with you and your company. You can be certain that we will be utilizing your services in the future. Just delighted...."

Shawn M. Cady, Director, Multimedia Development Synoptix Media Group Tampa Bay, Florida, USA

"Just what you want from a modern V/O artist, efficient, switched on to technology and able to do fantastically entertaining voices. Great ability, versatile and responsive, not to mention a great bloke to work with....hurrah to the death of distance."

Owen Johnson, Partner, MoseleyWebb Design Cardiff, Wales, UK

"We use Todd on one of our variety hits stations. These guys have to make a station full of personality, while only having a live, local, morning show. How do we make up the rest of the "stationality?" Easy. Todd Schick. As the voice of "Max" Todd brings personality to the station in a way that no other vo guy can. Todd is easy to work with, "gets" the station, and oftentimes adds his own personality outside of the copy to really bring it home. Top marks!"

Ed LaCombe, President, Exec. Producer Digital Sound and Video Ormond Beach, Florida, USA

Todd is always great to work with! He does multiple takes of each line and is also really great at catching things. For example, I really appreciated that he did multiple reads for a script in which the pronoun "he" was used. Todd did a version using "they" as well. He's awesome!

Working with Todd was great. Not only was he easy to communicate with, his turn around times were nearly instantaneous. Affordable, professional, and accommodating. I really don't know what else one could want in a VO talent. We were very happy with his work, and we're looking forward to working with him on future projects.

Todd did an amazing job on this project. He was professional, incredibly responsive to my requests, and the ultimate product - the recordings - turned out great. He provided me two versions of each script - both of which the client loved. The end product turned out great and my client is thrilled. Thanks Todd for all of your help.

Good voiceover talent. Has an "announcer" style sound, which worked well for our project. Very patient and willing to work with us as our project kept getting delayed. Narration files were provided quickly, but always outside the voices.com system, which complicated things for us a bit due to our firewall restrictions. Had to wait until after hours to grab the files.

Mr. Schick did a great job on a project that was delayed again and again by my client. Through the process he was professional and patient, which I great appreciate. His responses to requests for revisions were timely and understanding. My client loved his work in the end.

Todd was very easy to work with, and gave us multiple takes with his first read. The quality of that read was very high, and we ended up using roughly 90% of it for our video. We only needed a few small tweaks, which were provided very quickly, to get us to the final version of our video.
