Ian Wright

Believable, expressive, warm, Aussie voice over

Voice Description

A voice style of credibility with 'cut through'. Well modulated, mid range timbre with flexibility, ranging from soft sell/narration to punchy momentum. Vocal mood can swing between smooth and corporate to freeflowing and fun, depending on the project. I have a natural quick wit and at conception was gifted a dominant humour gene in my personality ! I'm not afraid to 'let my guard and age down', to perform for childrens audio books and more off-the-wall audio concepts.

My Home Base

, Australia

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Australian Accent - Straight & mature, can also perform slightly 'ocker', rural, bogan and hyper Oz flavoured deliveries. I always like a voice over challenge, so even if I haven't done it in the past, doesn't mean it won't turn into future reality, perhaps based on your brief ?

My Voice Experience

I was born with a brain, a voice, a personality, and the humour in me in 1954. From 1971 after being infected by personality/music radio at a very early age I entered Australian commercial radio, after 2 years of 'work experience' at the local station, during my final years of secondary education. From then to now, I have been involved both 'on' & 'off' air in maximising the effectiveness of my clients' advertising investment. My advertising voice career both LIVE & RECORDED has centred on SELLING not READING the scripts, with natural flair, empathy & conviction. I KNOW HOW TO SELL THE MESSAGE !!!

Having worked in 3 states across Australia in both rural & city markets, I have both conceived, written, recorded voiced & mixed radio commercials, music & historic documentaries/specials, station imaging, comedy segments & drop-ins, news/current affair specials plus award winning promotions involving both client and station voice over sessions. I am also featured as the 'Aussie voice' doing recorded 'liners' on a Hawaiian based Internet radio station, run by the former legendary 93KHJ Programme Director & marketing genius Ron Jacobs. I LOVE being involved with vibrant, entrepreneurial people !

On August 15, 2010 Bruce Levick a web design/development, videography, photography contractor from Queensland, Australia wrote on Linkedin - "Ian was a pleasure to work with. I would look to hire Ian again on any new voice over projects. Top qualities - Great results, good value, on time".

My Training

1971 - 2010 I have made a successful broadcasting career out of communicating to the mass audience on behalf of clients' advertising investment. My voice over training as part of my radio portfolio has been through the 'school of hard knocks', after matriculating from secondary school and via a number of University Management Courses, which also embraced the 'creative' side of the audio business. I have also received voice acting coaching from a highly successful mentor. That training is ongoing !

LIVE voice interaction with the public as station host, client MC and community promotions spokesperson has given me a rounded base, of BOTH in-studio and in-market experience and voice skills.

My Studio Equipment

I have a fully operational home studio, which provides a warm and real 'one-to-one' communication feel. It's a case of combining seasoned talent with today's technology, to deliver the best possible audio product.

My equipment purchases to date have been dictated by much research, including the advice of Production professionals I am fortunate to know and whose opinions I respect. Current equipment includes.....

* Apple MacBook computer
* Harlan Hogan MXL VO: 1-A signature series, pressure gradient condenser mic
* Avantone Pro-Shield Pop Filter
* Premium Soundking mic boom stand
* Mackie 402-VLZ3 Mixer
* Western Digital'My Book' USB Firewire External Hard Drive
* Digi Design MBox2 Mini with ProTools 8.0.3 software

Additional Skills

In short, with 40+ years communications experience, I offer you maximum 'bang for your buck', realising it all comes back to both your AND my Return On Investment.

I see the craft of voice over from both the client & talent's point of view, as we ALL want repeat business.

Having been a General Manager, Sales Manager, Programme Director, Promotions Director, Creative Writer, On-Air Talent & Voice Over Artist, my broad experience is injected into both my attitude & execution of your audio project. I have been married to my soul mate in life & business since 1975.
