Voice Description

Greetings :) Robert Burton has been imitating and mimicking most every voice and dialect he has heard ever since he was 7 years old. He is also one of the few people on the planet who can be referred to as a "human police siren." Through the years, he has developed a rather unique VO system in addition to his amazing mimicry skills.

He's a respected voice talent who works directly as a vendor for NBC, TWC, and many other studios. He's been the lead voice actor for Video Games, TV & Radio Commercials, and Animated shows. He also narrates audio books under the stage name "Robert Coltrane."

* AUDIBLE / ACX PROFILE: https://www.acx.com/narrator?p=A31FN9L9YH810L

Robert has starred on TV shows like "No Ordinary Family," "Celebrity Mysteries," & "Murder Book," as well as in movies like "Little Blue Pill" and "The Details." It was in his lead role as the misguided super hero on the TV series "Rat-Man" however, that won him "Best VO" from the LA Comedy Awards in 2012.

He served in The Marine Corps for 4 years, and in Army Special Ops for another 4 years. His “take- charge” and “cool under pressure” attitude, extensive knowledge of technology, limitless energy & passion make him indispensable as a producer or talent for most any project.
Robert always exceeds his clients expectations, no matter what the circumstances are.

My Training

BIO:

For most of his life, Robert was told by many that he should be in the entertainment industry. No matter what job he held at the time, it was always the same scenario.

In high school, he was the class clown. In a 9 year military career spanning the Marine Corps and the Army, Robert was always the one called on by his fellow soldiers to perform skits and entertain.

As a software test engineer, he brought fun and excitement to an environment that is traditionally mundane by doing all kinds of crazy imitations and spot-on monologues.

For only spending such a short time in Hollywood, Robert has come very far. As a respected voice talent who works directly for NBC, Robert has been the lead voice actor for video games, television & radio commercials, animated television shows, and has also created a small ring tone empire.

As an actor, Robert has co-starred on TV shows like "No Ordinary Family" and "Matchmakers", as well as movies like "Little Blue Pill" and "The Details." It was in his lead role as the misguided super hero on the TV series "Rat-Man" however, that helped earn him his 2nd nomination from the LA Comedy Awards in 2011.

Robert began Producing almost instinctively after his first year in Hollywood. Whenever a project came up that he was working on needed help with casting, location acquisition, or voice and video editing, Robert always stepped up to the plate.

Also a part time comedian, Robert became a successful one in March 2012 when he won the LA Comedy Awards for "Most Hilarious Voice Over" presented by Jaime Masada at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood.

High point for 2013: Robert was a Producer for the TV Pilot "Whoa!" with Linda Blair, Leslie Jordan, Dawnn Lewis, Taryn Southern, and Mark Gannt.

RED VELVET ENTERTAINMENT GROUP BIO

For most of his life, Robert was told by many that he should be in the entertainment industry. No matter what job he held at the time, it was always the same. In high school, he was the class clown. In a 9 year military career spanning the Marine Corps and the Army, Robert was always the one called on by his fellow soldiers to perform skits and entertain. Robert was an Army Ranger at both 3/75 and 2/75 Ranger Regiments.

As a software test engineer, he brought fun and excitement to an environment that is traditionally mundane by doing all kinds of crazy imitations and spot-on monologues.

For only spending such a short time in Hollywood, Robert has come very far. As a respected voice talent who works directly for NBC, Robert has been the lead voice actor for video games, television & radio commercials, animated television shows, and has also created a small ring tone empire.

As an actor, Robert has co-starred on TV shows like "No Ordinary Family" and "Matchmakers", as well as movies like "Little Blue Pill" and "The Details." It was in his lead role as the misguided super hero on the TV series "Rat-Man" however, that helped earn him his 2nd nomination from the LA Comedy Awards in 2011.

Robert began Producing almost instinctively after his first year in Hollywood. Whenever a project came up that he was working on needed help with casting, location acquisition, or voice and video editing, Robert always stepped up to the plate. Once he started to navigate the strange realm that is IMDB by helping himself and many others to add credits, bios, trivia, and a myriad of other things that most people wouldn't even think of for their career pages, his fate was sealed... he was an Actor / Producer. High point for 2013: Robert was a Producer for the TV Pilot "Whoa!" with Linda Blair, Leslie Jordan, Dawnn Lewis, Taryn Southern, and Mark Gannt.

Also a part time comedian, Robert became a successful one in March 2012 when he won the LA Comedy Awards for "Most Hilarious Voice Over" presented by Jaime Masada at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Sadly, Robert no longer tours.

Robert brings his love and passion for the entertainment industry, his incredible wit & gift for comedy, his vast technology experience, and limitless potential as a talent to RVE.

He is one of the 3 founding members of Red Velvet Entertainment.
