Welcome! My name is Alan, and I am a British voiceover artist, presenter, and actor based in the UK. I believe I have the best job in the world because whether it be a voiceover job or something in front of the camera, I get to act for a living, bringing me a world of joy! Keep reading to learn more about me!
The Chap Behind the Voiceover Artist
Before talking about the wonderful voiceover world, I will share a little bit about me because it’s good to know a bit about the person you’re paying to carry out your voiceover work, right? So I live in the South of Leeds in Yorkshire with my wife and daughter. My number 1 job is being a good husband and dad, and everything else falls in line after that. Values are so crucial because values reflect skillsets such as dedication, commitment, punctuality, and character.
I have an unhealthy obsession with ice cream, I adore comedies, and I love long walks with my kids. I am super passionate about my faith, and I host my faith-based entertainment podcast and am super passionate about my community.
Now Let’s Talk About Voiceover!
I am regularly working with clients worldwide from my high spec home studio, but I am more than happy to commute if that is to my client’s preference. My goal is to bring your projects to life in the smoothest way possible for you. Every production will be of the highest quality and delivered within any deadline. Here is the thing – excellent voiceover is not just about efficiently getting through the script before the time runs out (though that is important). Excellent voiceover comes from the deepest depths of one’s imagination! Bringing the words from the script to life requires more than just good discipline. It requires imagining, inspiring, connecting, and telling a story.
Voiceover to Inspire, Connect & Tell the Story
Let’s look at those 4 points quickly! Imagination is a fundamental ingredient in everything I do, whether it’s voiceover or on-screen acting. It allows me to bring truth into any situation, no matter how crazy, formal or indifferent it may be. To inspire draws the audience in while connection bridges gaps and the best part is it does not matter where in the world we are, thanks to the incredible power of products like source connect.
Finally, storytelling! Storytelling invites the listener into a world of engagement, fantasy, excitement, and joy. Storytelling invites the listener into a world of engagement, excitement, and fun. What is the message the client wants? That’s the story that needs to be told! This brings a product that is clear and concise and a product that connects to someone on an emotional, spiritual, and psychological level.
World-Class Voiceover Tech Aligns With Your Goals
So is good equipment essential, I hear you say? Yes, of course, it is. Clients know the sound they want and know what kit they like. I frequently hear clients asking for the Neumann TLM 103 and the Sennheiser 416; why? Because they are phenomenal microphones with decades of powerful testimonials, they are reliable and familiar. Working in Anime, Video Games, Animation, and of course, Commercial and Narration, I am asked for these microphones all the time!
So in my studio, you can find a spec up for the Sennheiser in my studio with my 8060 shotgun mic, and then my beautiful Neumann TLM 103 sat next to it! Two mics offer my clients the choice! All of this is powered via world-class wiring, interfaces, and a state-of-the-art windows computer loaded with customised DAW ready to go.
About Voiceover Testimonials
Finally, I have a long list of clients, including Starbucks, Ford, BBC, and Sony, who have had a great experience working with me. I share this with you because it is vitally important that every potential client knows the caliber of companies I work with. I believe my work speaks for itself, but my client list and testimonials show that I am talented and a professional business practitioner within entertainment. I have been in entertainment for 15 years and have worked on film and TV sets, I have worked as a presenter, I have worked in performance capture, and of course, I have worked in voiceover in several genres. These skills feedback into the central source of ‘it is all just acting.’
I could continue writing words, but at this point, I would love for you to experience the power I can bring to your projects. Please do listen to my reels and read my reviews and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
