Andrew Fogarasi

Rich, Warm, Sincere, Trustworthy, Authoritative

Voice Description

I have a naturally rich and deep voice that hits the right notes of warmth and gravitas. Melodic enough to add interest to even the driest corporate videos, varied enough to insert some purr or movie-trailer growl when called for.

Versatile

My voice has been used for commercials, continuity/trailers, radio station imaging, promos, cartoons, websites, explainers, corporate training, corporate imaging, IVR systems, and more. I can read copy at an absurdly fast rate if needed, or with the gentlest of natural cadences. I am equally at home reading friendly, conversational scripts as I am providing traditional announcer and narration voices. Whether you want a voice that is authoritative or fun... whether your project wants sincere or silly; whether your message is best served by a voice that’s aggressive or uplifting; whether you want sexy... tough... smooth... hyped... soothing or dry (and all points in between!) I can meet your needs.

Easy to work with

I've spent over 15 years honing my craft and I love what I do. I refuse to let the passage of time erode my enthusiasm, and I am just as eager to please each new client as I was my first. So not only do you get a fantastic voice for your project, you get someone who can take direction and will give his all to ensure that you are more than satisfied. And I love repeat clients as much as they love me. In fact, I still work for some of my earliest clients!

Good cop, bad cop...y

There’s not much point in having a great voice read an underwhelming script. And even “good enough” can often be made “better”. Don’t let all my years of reading and understanding good copy go to waste! Just ask and I will polish and edit your script to make it even better. (I will always offer your original text verbatim as an alternative take should you choose to stick with that.)

*But wait, there’s more! *

...Actually, there isn’t. But who am I to resist a voiceover trope as I pitch my services. And what more is there really to want, beyond a great voiceover from an experienced professional who will give 110% to you your project, all with a quick turnaround? Nothing more. Nothing less.

My Voice Experience

I have over 15 years of professional experience doing voice work. Ten of those were spent as one of the "go-to" people for English language voice overs in Hungary. I have worked for clients that included all the major international ad agencies (BBDO, Young & Rubicam, Mccann Erickson, Leo Burnett and Saatchi and Saatchi, etc.) and through them, numerous global brands and multinationals (including McDonalds, Master Card, Unilever, Coca Cola, HBO, and Vodafone). My voice helped ads win awards at the Cannes Lions festival, and I was the English voice of AXN Central Europe (a Sony Entertainment cable television network) for several years.

I moved back to Canada in 2007, where I continue to work for a variety of clients from my home studio.
