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!!!

Dave Fennoy – the Person Behind the Voice

Lots of fun here catching up with Dave Fennoy in his Los Angeles home studio. 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! Big thanks to the Voice of Hulu, games, and cartoon voices which my son loves!

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.

Marc Graue – the Person Behind the Voice

This is also the first of the Person Behind the Voice conversation which you can listen to, read, or watch… more video to come! Enjoy. In conversation with Marc Graue For the first time, the Person Behind the Read More +

Bring on the magic… Holiday Magic!

Remarkably, the most rewarding project I’ve recently worked on was not the one which paid all the expenses for our family summer holiday in a 5 star hotel in North Cyprus (flights included), but William’s and my participation in the 2011, 9th edition of Holiday Magic, a Gift for Children of All Ages CD! The goal of this annual production is to brighten the holidays for the sick children spending the season at Children’s Hospitals and their siblings who often feel lonely due to the Read More +

When you have an audio challenge, who you gonna call?

Don’t be a Twit! Tools to open your world

Mark Zuckerberg and I have a few things in common. First we both know what it’s like to be a billionaire, and believe me it’s no fun keeping track of all those zeros. Secondly we’ve both profited from using social media. Granted he’s done rather better than me, and I’m not jealous of that… but no doubt he could find plenty of reasons to be jealous on me. Straight to the point: social media is fun for some, but a nightmare for others. I can Read More +
