Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
An unlimited array of emotions and characterizations, including classily sexy, ditsy, posh old woman, baffled young boy, bitchy teenager, worried mom, bouncy young woman. Accents regularly used include American, 'cockney', Irish, Scottish, Northern English, French, Indian and Australian. I can also do Italian and Spanish, Somerset accent (UK) and American. These descriptions are not exhaustive: my palette is extensive.
My Voice Experience
I've done just about every type of voiceover job, from radio and TV commercials for cars (Hyundai), high-end Parisian fashion houses (Yves Saint-Laurent), 'Glow' by J-Lo, Bounty, Nescafe and too many other others to mention, to dubbing on movies (including Banlieue 13 by Luc Besson and The Ghost Writer by Roman Polanski). Not forgetting, also, various billboards, for Eurosport and Dark Dog, among others. My experience also ranges from being 'the voice' on Parrot's hands-free GPS systems to characterization on various animated series, including Tara Duncan and Street Football. I've also worked on documentaries, both scientific and cultural, and a plethora of corporate films (every type of company imaginable, including Renault, Accor Hotels, Cannes film festival, Jean-Paul Gaultier, to name but a few). I have experience in audioguides for many museums, language methods for people learning English (in various accents) and audiobooks (mainly for kids). Basically, you name it - I've probably done it!
I had elocution and drama training from a young age (young teen) and worked regularly in recording studios as early as the age of 12.
In my adult years, I have pursued acting lessons with various teachers, from LA and Paris, and have acted in various productions (from classic Shakespearian to modern short movies and music videos).
I am also a performing singer/songwriter, with extensive stage experience in Europe and America.
I have also coached many celebrities for whom I wrote songs, to help them perform in the studio.
In addition, I worked as a journalist and publicity copywriter for 3 years.
My Studio Equipment
In my home studio, I currently work on a Mac, using GarageBand. I have a Behringer C-! or Rodes mike and a Behringer pre-amp. These work well for 90% of my needs.
(On very high-precision or finished product musical projects, I work in another, nearby studio, with ProTools and Neumann mikes.)
I am fluent in Spanish and French (I lived in France for 22 years and have practiced Spanish for the same amount of time; I followed linguistic studies alongside my music and drama training). I propose translation services either in conjunction with voiceover jobs I do or separate from them, depending on the client's needs.
As an accomplished and experienced singer/songwriter, I can also provide music and/or singing, for any type of project, including film footage or jingles, for example.
