Service Overview

Voice Over

Often a voiceover will be asked to change the delivery and tone of the commercial, promo, trailer or narrative to reflect what producer wants. Unfortunately, not every voiceover can do this. Taking direction is a talent in and of itself....Bear is extremely good at this. Maybe that's why he is in such demand.

From Comedy and Drama, to Mystery and Horror, every product or service needs to be represented in a way that resonates with the viewer and listener in such a way that that viewer goes out and BUYS the product. But first they have to "buy" the message. Bear is the messenger so many advertisers have chosen.

Voice Over Testimonials

I think you would be fantastic for advertising on the Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity networks. I've book-marked you, and when USIRR Amendment goes national radio, I'll email you again. Thanks for responding, you brought alot of energy and creativity to the script and made the words jump off the page. Outstanding Barry!
