My Voice Experience

My unusual history as a voice over artist actually started as an Assistant Editor on "Smallville" where I would sometimes stop by to join in on the Loop Group/ADR sessions for fun. This intro to voice acting was very rigorous and exhilarating. With everyone's encouragement plus a few voice over classes, I decided to pursue this path. So here I am!

I am non-Union, seeking representation. I love working in the booth, speaking into the microphone, and cold reading. Plus, I am a curler, and this sport enables me to really exercise my lung capacity.

Interesting voice highlights:
Natural contagious laugh and screams like a banshee

Attached is my commercial demo and resume. I hope that you will find me interesting and in line with what you are looking for. (My voice highlights are not in the demo because I am hoping it will give you a reason to hear for yourself.)

I know you go through a hundred of these everyday; so I thank you very much for your time and effort (Mahalo!).

Aloha,
Donna Umali

Additional Skills

I have extensive knowledge of production and the film/video making process from camera to post to you name it, I've probably tried it once. Post Production is my forte, and I have a very good ear for audio. I loved putting together projects like sizzle reels and previously-ons. I also dabble in a bit of writing. I find that all this knowledge has been very helpful understanding the script and creating great natural sounding performances.

Plus, I love to laugh.

I love to scream.

Use and abuse me.
