Wow. I've directed a lot of VO in my time. One time Scott Rummell nailed it. One time Hal Douglas did. Pretty much you are the only other one that gave me exactly what I wanted in your first read. Thanks Mara! Jeff Keels, Creative Director/Producer/Partner at Megalomedia
You're a SUPERSTAR VoiceOver Artist! It was great working with ya on the new TV spot for ORECK! Dylan Dawson, Producer, Script-to-Screen, Inc.
I have had the pleasure to work with Mara Junot on several projects for The World Bank. Each time we have been delighted with the timeliness of her work, and most importantly, her commitment to getting the appropriate intonation for the content. My prior experience with voice talent was always in-person at a local Philadelphia studio. I was concerned about working with talent procured through the internet and by not being present to check the recording in real-time. However, Mara's absolute professionalism on all levels, and has proven my fears to be unwarranted. I recommend Mara Junot without reservation.
Candace Roberts, President, Quantum Think Corporation

I fell in love with her voice from the first time I heard it. She has that 'it' that not just anyone can bring to the microphone I expect [the] best work and I have never had to try very hard to get it from Mara. Mara is a solid professional who has batted 1,000 for me at Charter Media and Comcast Spotlight. Delton Perrodin, Producer, Comcast Spotlight
