Additional Skills

I have the talent to focus in on your direction and, indeed, I crave direction from a good director, to meet or exceed expectations. Or, leave me on "auto pilot" with just simple directions and I'll post the favorable results.

I know my audio programs and provide a terrific sounding product. I offer a clean phone patch system so that you may join in as my recording is in progress, if you so desire.

You won't find any "down time" here. In the rare instance there is a technical difficulty, a fully operational back up system is available by pressing a few buttons and clicking a few clicks.

Additionally, I can "save" your session for future revisions. My voice "matches" are magical, trust me!

I offer postings on my FTP site in virtually any format, or I can send via e-mail. If CD or DVD is desired, no problem. Just name your file format.

Feel free to call or e-mail for any additional information about Tom Buck, Voice-Overs.
