Service Overview

Voice Over

DELIVERY TIME: I'm known for turning projects around quickly – ask me about same-day delivery!

LIVE SESSIONS: I am available for live sessions through Source Connect Standard, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or traditional phone call at a time that you and I can determine together. Session fees are $100 per hour or $50 per half hour on top of the project fee.

REVISIONS: Your delivery includes one version up front, and one round of artistic edits (i.e. variation in pace or tone) if needed. Further artistic edits (including pickups) will come at a charge of 50% of the project fee. This policy is in place to encourage you to thoroughly edit your script for typos, flow, pacing, etc. ahead of time. Or, if you anticipate wanting several versions, I encourage you to book a live directed session (see above).

About Alaina

Alaina Wis

Overview

Surprisingly versatile; unbelievably swift. Just ask my clients – Amazon, Google, Visa, Estée Lauder, Tommy Hilfiger, Macy's, PepsiCo, Costco, Deloitte, Cisco, and Walmart. My voice has been used in several national commercials, and is the identifying sound of several companies, including Inspirato, Podium, and Quantum Photonics. Make sure to hit the ♥ button on any demos you like, so you can come back and find me any time! For your narrations, my voice can be warm, inspirational, and inviting. For commercials, upbeat, urgent, and enticing. And for presentations, smooth, clear, engaging, and professional. My voice has been described as conversational, authentic, and like a girl-next-door in one moment – but cinematic, emotive, and rich in the next.

Does your smartphone app require a voice that is attractive, tempting, seductive, and enticing? Or does your B2B video need to sound matter-of-fact, straightforward, and casual? Maybe you have a medical explainer or technical video with lots of tricky terms – I'll be a knowledgeable, authoritative, trustworthy voice. On the contrary, if you've got a Spotify or Pandora ad targeted at millennials, I'll be sure to bring a cool, relatable, fresh tone with a slight vocal fry to the table.

My voice has been compared against Julie Andrews in one breath, and Kristen Bell as the voice of Gossip Girl in the next. I've been told I embody the confidence of Charlize Theron and Elizabeth Banks, and the slight raspy seduction of Scarlett Johansson.

I have a flair for comedy, and have been pegged as an Amy Poehler or Sarah Chalke type. I also have a knack for imitating the snide, sarcastic styles of Chelsea Peretti and Aubrey Plaza. I also excel at voice matching and imitation. Ask me about my Disney Princess and character voices, such as Belle, Ariel, Megara, Rapunzel, Elsa, and Yzma. More of my character work can be heard in Big Fish Games' Haunted Legends 13: Twisted Fate and Redemption Cemetery 12: Day of the Almost Dead, as well as Domini Games' Dark Romance 11: Ethereal Gardens (Collector's Edition), available now for Mac and PC. I can also be heard as the voice of Emma Hardy in the popular mobile game, Black Survival, and in the upcoming update to viral hit Mobile Legends: Bang Bang as the new voice of Hilda.
