Experience

Main line of international work is corporate, instructional/educational and presentations. Brands that used my voice include: Burger King, Bruynzeel, Consumentenbond, Canon, Continental Airlines, DHL, Dutch Government, Google, Kenteq, LyondellBasell, TomTom.

The shortest script I ever recorded contained only 1 word (and it was also one of the toughest of them all). The longest script I recorded contained over 50,000 words.

Credentials

Education

Started as a singer, guitarist and keyboard player.
Studied musical composition at the Conservatory of Utrecht (High School of the Arts).
Worked as a recording engineer and voice director in a post production studio for 8 years.

Decided to concentrate on voice work from the third time a voice talent who was behind the microphone said to me: "Man, you should be in my chair".

Composing music is still something I do in my free time. Beyond doubt the best way to keep the ears in shape. And believe me: for a voice talent good ears are even more important than a good voice.

Service Description

Great experience in 'sync reading', meaning that the original (English, German or French) voice is on my headphones and I read and speak the Dutch translation along.
What I consider to be one of my best qualities is the ability to speak fast without sounding rushed. Quite convenient since a Dutch translation is usually longer than the original script.
I always succeed in 'making it fit'. Either by speaking faster, adapting the script or by digital manipulation afterwards.

In my studio I do a lot of voice recordings with other voice talents. Keeping my technical and directional skills up to date.

    / 5 John Hayes for Job #146319 Indeed Sponsored Jobs (Netherlands Localization) Thanks, Willem. It was great working with you. We're planning to share the first version of the video with Indeed next week for their review. Hopefully they won't require any pickups. I doubt it. I'll be sure to send you a link to the video when it's released. I hope we get the chance to work together on another video.

    Take care,
