Michael Cogliandro

Resonant, deep, light, friendly, Casey Kasem-type

Voice Description

My Voice:
My voice can be movie-preview serious, or goofy cartoony where needed. I can do a few voice impersonations such as Casey Kasem, Jimmy Stwert, Sean Connery, John Wayne.. that kind of thing. I can do a variety on Monty-Python-esque funny voices.

I have been told I have a very good phone voice.

In the past, I have performed over 200 voice-overs for a broadcast television station- mostly production commercials.

Odd thing, I can say "particular" but I stumble over the word "particularily."

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can do faux British accents, Proper, Exaggerated, Liverpool and cockney-Dickenson-esque. Some Scottish and Irish. And as some cast-off, some Australian/New Zealand. I can Canadian it with an "aboot" and "eh's."
I have done a couple of German accents for a student film, but it was short sentences.
I can do some italian and some odd mixture of a Spanish/Mexican/Chile accent.

I am fairly good at impersonations of Jimmy Stewart and Casey Kasem. I can do John Wayne, young and old (one-lung). o_O

Sean Connery? Yes.

Clint Eastwood? Yepper. Humphrey Bogart? Sure! How 'bout Katherine Hepburn? Um..OLD Katherine, yes, indeedy! Matthew McConaughey? just a bit, then I lose it... he's just too smooth and laid back!

I am fairly adapt at impersonations and odd UFO-type sounds.

My Voice Experience

Working for KRRT-TV FOX35, I was enlisted in doing voice-overs for commercial television spots. I also performed one or two radio spots for the station.

Keep in mind, I was NOT the "voice" of the station. I did not do "Tonight's Presentations." or "Next on Fox-35's" I did commercials. Mostly local stuff.

All-in-all I figure I did over 200 spots that aired locally. I was also the go-to guy when they needed to compress 45 seconds of copy into a 29-second spot. Yep, when primed, I can be a fast talker.

I have done a voice-over for University of Texas student videos "This Space Between" and some artsey World War Two video piece where I spoke with a hushed German Accent. Both commisioned online.

My Training

I have a BFA in Communication Graphics fro West Texas A&M University.
I did a background vocal on a music track for Sara Hickman.
