New Video Showreel

I’ve finally got round to doing something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time – namely, produce a polished video showreel of some of my previous work. I’ve got video content on this site already, but this is the first montage compilation that I’ve produced. Well, I say ‘I’ve’ produced – I knew…

Chatterbox is a voice agency based in London, and will now be your point of contact should you wish to engage me in TV commercial/promo/ident/bumper/narration gigs etc. My agent, Joanna Shiokka, will be more than happy…

A Casual Chat with Peter Dickson and Alan Dedicoat

On the Radio Today website, they’ve published a short interview/chat with Alan ‘voice of the balls’ Dedicoat and Peter ‘it’s time to face the muuuuusic’ Dickson. It’s a nice brief look back on their careers, where they started, and what they get up to day to day. They also talk about how and where they…

Recent Case Study – How To Become Dementia Friendly

I was recently commissioned to do a voiceover for Warwickshire County Council as part of their Dementia Friendly Communities initiative.

New 2014 Voice Reel Released Into The Wild

A new year. A new voicereel. By the end of last year I was startled to realise I hadn’t updated my main reel since that January. So, action stations; there’s plenty of new material I could include from the previous year’s VO jobs, the major job is picking the right bits and compiling it all!…

The Wise Words Of Director Paul Feig

For the most part, they’re usually very well written and engaging, as a lot of them will have been written by professional writers and/or PR or ad…

Voice Message Me With SpeakPipe

Today I have installed a plugin on my website called ‘SpeakPipe’. It’s a service where you can send me a voice message through my actual website. It will be particularly useful if you’ve sent me a script which needs a couple of pronunciation explanations, maybe an unusual company name, technical/medical terms, unfamiliar jargon etc. All…

Why Maude In Accounts Should Stick To Her Own Job

At times, I just don’t understand some people. On the odd occasion, a client or prospect will come to me enquiring about having a voiceover recorded for a video they’re producing. [And by the way, more often than not, these videos aren’t exactly bargain bucket basement prices; we’re talking thousands of pounds worth of production.]…

Recent Client: Morrisons Supermarket

This is the end product of a job I recently voiced for Morrisons. It shows off plans to redevelop a plot of land just outside of London; building a new supermarket with adjoining Premier Inn hotel next door. This video is to demonstrate the positive impact this regeneration will have on the local area, being…
