Cutting Edge Voiceover Recording Technology

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, you’re going to want a piece of this awesome technology specially designed for the voice actor on the go! This summer, having worked hard on their development, Mehmet Onur and I took the Peepers for a spin, and as you can see from the clip below the user experience and results are both awesome. Guided by the voice of our very own Anne Ganguzza, the Peepers have taken into account all the voice actor’s needs from providing an easy Read More +

Audio Description

Getting out of the car, my friend Flavio said, “Next time we come to the cinema, I’ll lend each of you a white cane – that’ll really freak everyone out if they think the driver is blind too!” Flavio had lost his sight in a road accident aged 15, but twenty years ago was an excellent example to me of how he was still higher functioning than most people I knew. Parachute jump fundraisers perhaps pushing the limits further than I’d want to go, he’d just started a Read More +

Ellen! Take a look at this!

In my last post, one of the videos I featured was a great clip featuring the voice talent of Lisa Biggs and some toys she voiced, together with Diane Merritt as they fortuitously passed through a toy store. It was purrrfect! The monkey was unavailable for comment (he’d been sold out!) but happily Carolina Now took the opportunity to bring these two Voxy Ladies together for an interview this week, and the monkey has lots to say! Here are the Voxy Ladies on California Now!: Read More +

Virtually a day with friends

What an amazing weekend it was: just one or two hours’ sleep and global interactions. Sharing news, a recording session, and the opportunity to hook up live with Joe Cipriano’s book launch party – with a simultaneous international side party too boot! If you didn’t already know, I’m excited, and feel privileged, to have such great friends – in the real, not just “Facebook” sense – around the world, and constantly amazed that technology enables us to keep in close and very real contact with Read More +

Lisa Biggs – the Person Behind the Voice

Lisa Biggs hits the nail on the head after a morning coffee! “I mean, you have a gift. You have a dream… Anything you want to do, you can do! You got to make it happen.” While the sun temporarily let us down, Lisa lit up the room. It was great to finally meet her in person having previously produced a couple of videos together over the internet. I suspect there are many amazing things to come!!!

Great story of determination leading to success: if anyone’s told you “no”, or that voice over is already saturated, you’re not the first to hear that!

Joe Cipriano – the Person Behind the Voice

Having Joe Cipriano give me a personal tour around the Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab was one of the highlights of my visit to Los Angeles in 2012. Here we discuss how he grew into voice over – a remarkable success story starting while at school (“Radio show was good, homework not so good.”). Also some background from him on Don LaFontaine, the man and friend, and the lab built in his honour. In conversation with Joe Cipriano For subtitles, click the CC button (Closed Captions Read More +
