Bart Vleugels

Flemish, Dutch, Vlaams, Nederlands

Voice Description

I was born and raised in Belgium (the rest of my family lives there) and came to the USA for a Broadcasting degree. After receiving that degree, I stayed in the USA and started my own voice-over business. 99% of my work is in Flemish. I am not your typical Flemish radio announcer. I consider my voice "the guy next door"; however, I've done several infomercials where high energy and "cheesy" announcer was a must.
Various projects have included the following descriptors:

Flemish, Vlaams, Vlaming,Nederlands, Dutch, Geel, Antwerp, Fresh, anti-announcer, announcer, serious, education, upbeat, cool, enthusiastic, happy, excited, authoritative, inspirational, uplifting, professional, hip, documentary, energetic, corporate,student,sad angry, nerdy, blue-collar, white-collar, genuine, sincere, authentic.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I was born in Geel, Belgium and lived in the province of Antwerp for 20 years. I came to the USA in 1993 and have lived here ever since. Flemish is my native language of several and I am fluent in Dutch, French and American English.
Especially for the Belgian market: My voice is fresh, new, and distinct. Not the typical announcer you hear over and over again.

My Voice Experience

e-learning, documentaries, radio promos, business presentations, TV promos, advertisements, internet videos, characters for a video game

My Training

As an audio engineer, I have heard it all. I specialize in communicating with producers to understand the delivery that clients are looking for. I easily understand the feeling behind a script and can interpret it with my voice.

I have worked in radio and audio/video production for about 30 years. I also teach university classes on audio and video production for film.
