Pete Brown, Video Producer
BOSS Productions


From fully produced thirty-second commercials to thirty-minute voice over narrations, Gord Brooks brings just the right inflection, pacing, and nuance to all our projects. The fact that he’s responsive to our needs, reasonably priced, timely, and flexible is the icing on the cake! To summarize: If you’re looking for a consummate professional that takes a genuine pride in his craft, look no further than Gord Brooks.

Myron Bennett, Creative Director,
Third Wave Digital

I found Gord through one of those internet voiceover clearinghouse sites, and boy am I glad I did. Even though he and I had never met or spoken on the phone before, he did an excellent job of taking my script, and the minimal "feel" I indicated I was looking for in my email, and returned several "on target" variations on it within a day! I'll certainly use his services again when I have a need for more voice work.

"Gord is the imaging voice for our radio station. Our Hot AC/AC station re-branded last year and Gord became the voice of The ONE. His read is rich, warm, friendly, fun, versatile... and it's real. There are so many good things to say about Gord. He's quick to turn around material, gives a choice of cuts, likes to be creative and keeps a good rapport with his clients. If you've got Gord, you've got it good.

I never have to wait on Gord. His turnaround time is excellent. He is consistent with his delivery and versatile with his style. Even in emergency situations, I can always count on Gord to work with me in order to meet my deadlines.

My Training

My training is on the job.

I made a living with my voice before I was old enough to drive.

My history includes many years on-air at Radio & TV outlets across the country, on stage acting like I wasn't scared. I have even held real jobs, breaking everything from concrete with a jack-hammer in summer to joints on a drill string on a frozen drill rig in winter .

I have seized every opportunity to learn my craft, no matter the source, a mentor, a class, a book, a friend, a rival, a job, a performance, a rejection.





My Studio Equipment

My studio has been optimized to allow the cleanest, quietest recording environment possible for under a million dollars.

EMF and RFI shielding so complete that background noise is non existent.

Recordings are VERY clean.

Edits are perfect

Additional Skills

Writing:

I have written (and edited) scripts for everything from documentary and series television, TV and Radio commercials to news copy and radio specials.

Live Host/MC:

For events as large as stadiums filled 50,000 screaming rock & roll fans and as small as 20 people at a comedy club (sigh).
