What was your first taster of voice over work?
Hmmmmm, voicing an ad for a local radio station in 1996. Please don’t ask for the TAPE!
What has been your favourite voice over job to date and why?
Definately Stomp in the Grand Canal Theatre. It was a tough one to get right and the client was providing remote direction as they had a specific idea as to what they wanted, but when it was finally done, edited and on TV, that was a most rewarding feeling!
If you had to pick one style which you feel represents you best what would it be?
An Upfront, Informative, in your FACE read! (with warm subtle south Dublin tones!) Well it is where I’m from
Have you been involved in anything interesting lately?
My latest client was working with Coors light (mmmmmm) offering a free ‘gaf’ (Irish slang for house!) for a year for a group of friends. It was an interesting project to work with as it was very student/youth orientated and the backing track required the voice to be youthful and trendy. I think it worked out nicely!
Any advice for aspiring voice overs?
Practice, Practice (oh did I mention practice!)
You don’t need to buy everything at once either but it is critical that you have a good microphone! Once you’re set up and ready to go… START MARKETING, and try not to get angry or disillusioned if you dont hear back from everybody (or anybody!) it will take time and jobs will come along eventually.
Anything else you would like to let us know?
