Voice Over Testimonials

David took on the project at short notice, asked excellent questions about the intention of the project, and responded vibrantly and accurately to both artistic and technical direction. He provided three options of vocal tone, well edited and within 24 hours.
I very much look forward to working with David again.

Department for Transport (DfT), UK Government

I was keen to use one of David’s more rough Scottish tones to narrate the journey of the Toad.
He was full of energy, up for trying new ideas and yet respectful and patient. We had a good artistic exchange and I really appreciated his ability to voice his own ideas and flair.
I had excellent feedback from my clients.
An utterly professional experience and I won’t hesitate to engage David again.

Jules Howard Zoology, for Froglife Scotland
