Ernie Mitchell

Conversational, Sincere, Intimate, Corporate

Voice Description

I've used an authoritative power read for a national mixed martial arts event on Showtime; a conversational spot for regional grocer Winn Dixie; something a bit zanier for miamiherald.com; stretched my range upward in a national promotion that partnered Smirnoff and the Discovery Channel; and threw in all I could from the kitchen sink-- and refrigerator on a couple of character driven assignments. I try to give clients the exact voice or voices they want and need.

My Training

After earning my B.A. (major Business Administration; concentration Economics) I've continued studying voice -- both singing and acting -- as well as guitar and real estate which have all helped with my voice over pursuit. The real estate course led to my licensing in the 1990s and showed me new, very creative, approaches to marketing in various media. Learning new techniques of writing, interpreting, and conveying copy for properties has undoubtedly helped while recording.

My Studio Equipment

Microphone: Sterling ST-55

Systems: Dell (Desk: XP) and Toshiba (Laptop: Window 7)

Software: Pro Tools LE 7.1

Delivery: mp3; wave (via FTP), and aiff (via FTP)


A proprietary shock mount, pop filter, soundproofing and other accessories help reduce aborted recordings.

Additional Skills

My first voice over client, Unlimited Post, has been my most rewarding. Justo Pinero gave me an optimally pleasant, professional, and informative introduction to voice over work. I've not only gotten great jobs through Unlimited Post (Showtime; Time Warner; Palacin Dental; Metropovia/Metropolitan Hospital of Miami and Cinemojado), but I unexpectedly stumbled into a good bit of copywritig work through that initial association. It began when I offered to modify copy for a client and soon more referrals came.

While I prefer receiving copy and having the client or engineer edit (what V.O. talent doesn't) I'm usually happy to throw in a free editorial suggestion or two if I feel the client is receptive to the input or the proposed copy is substantially flawed. Of course I have had jobs that entailed substantial copywriting in addition to providing a voice over and was compensated accordingly.
