Believable, Authority, Guy On Street, Natural,

Voice Description

Narrations: Warm and Deep Voiceovers or Smooth and Natural Messages. Friendly but authoritative voice talent.
Presentations: Businesslike but natural.

Whether your promotion is a book, a meal managing company, a hospital program or voicemail messaging, conversational reading is my specialty. In a world where television programs substitute for education, Mitch's specials put you at the head of the class. Whether your project is a local or national commercial or a corporate DVD Mitch's style sells. I enjoy film and documentary narration and excell in spots and narrations dealing with religion, spirituality, and belief systems.
"Mr. Leopard's voice quality was perfect for our church's presentation of the Passion of Christ. His oration was more than an anecdotal overture. He illustrated the gospel narratives with sensitivity and exuberance." -Brad Bunn, Youth Pastor and coordinator of Sandy Springs UMC Passion Drive Thru

With years of experience in Europe and the Middle East, I examine and reflect upon cultural problems around the globe for you. Other familiar topics include science, history, and philosophy. I am well-versed to serve as your spokesman.
