Dan Wheeler

Young, clear, enthusiastic. Many character voices

Voice Description

My own voice is young, enthusiastic and clear, with a fairly neutral British accent. It has been described as being well-spoken without being alienating. I am very flexible and sensitive to the needs of different voice requirements and quite comfortably perform anywhere on a scale from modern London to traditional RP.

I am an excellent character actor, able to perform many accents, and also many more extreme cartoon-style voices. I am also an excellent impersonator and mimic.

My Voice Experience

Video-Games:
I voiced various characters on the video game "Privates" by Channel 4 and Zombie Cow Studios, which won Best Game at the BIMA awards 2010.

Documentaries:
BBC - I recently dubbed President Sarkozy for a BBC This World documentary (2011)
I have also dubbed Cristiano Ronaldo in an hour-long documentary by Pitch International (2010)

Educational:
I am the English voice of the character "Dino" in the Zona e-learning tool "Dino's Adventures".

I am relatively new to the voiceover profession but work very easily and naturally at the mic, taking direction instinctively and quickly. Please listen to my reel to hear what I could potentially add to your project.
