Voice Over Testimonials

I am Alessandro Pinna, President of MV International. I had the occasion of watching the Video of our network that you developed and whose narrating voice was provided by your person. I express my deepest and most sincere satisfaction about your work and, particularly, I note that your voice was perfect, in both tone and cadence, for the purposes of the Video. I am sure this will provide a substantial added value and contribute to the success of the product. While commending you again for your contribution, I take this occasion for expressing the hope that we might cooperate again in the future. Alessandro Pinna President of MV International

We were very impressed with the quality of Jeff’s work. He has a very warm, inviting voice that was perfect for our project. Plus, he turned around our voice-over in less than 12 hours. You can’t beat that! Marty Katz Sr. Director of Communications & Marketing Jewish Federation of Sarasota- Manatee Counties (FL)

Recently, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Ostroff to create a 30-second voice-over ad for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Delaware in Wilmington. I wanted an ad that was dynamic using both pictures and spoken words to highlight the feel of this unique program designed for people 50+ to stay intellectually and socially engaged. I chose Jeff to create this piece for several reasons. One is the quality and clarity of Jeff’s speaking voice. The other is his ability to work with my concept. Throughout the process, which was very quick, I had multiple opportunities to evaluate test samples and offer feedback. I am very pleased with the final product and the short turnaround time it took to produce it. I highly recommend Jeff's services. Carol Bernard, MS Manager, Osher Learning Centers
