Voice Description

The Voice:
----------
John Stretton’s biggest asset is his VERSATILITY. Your project will be enhanced by a Professional, experienced Voice, than can be customized through your direction.


John began his Voice Over and Voice Acting Career in 1996 voicing Local Radio and Television Advertisements, Cinema and On Hold Messages. Producers quickly saw him, in many cases, as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for Voice Talent. John is able to sound young, middle-aged or senior and has collected a huge range of Reads over his career so far, to demonstrate his skills and diversity.


Local and International:
------------------------
John soon found that he had such demand for his services, that opening his own Audio Production Studio should be the next logical step. Many years on, he continues to provide Professional Voice and Audio Production Services to both domestic and International Clientele.


Australian, AMERICAN and UK Accents:
------------------------------------
John continues to better his delivery in any way he can, and in the past 12 months has undergone an American Accent Voice Coaching Course, as well as British and UK Accents. This has attracted much Overseas Work to John, as the Voice Coaching has allowed him to step up to the plate, to offer International Voices that are beyond simply 'putting on an accent' - Voices that are Realistic and Convincing.


Project Types:
--------------
John Voices: Film Trailers, Animated Characters, Video Games, On-Line Training Programs, Web Sites, Corporate, Narration, Radio, Television...and more! Almost anything requiring an 'adaptable' Voice to sell the product!

John’s delivery styles are many and varied. He can provide reads from: Warm and intimate Narrative or Authoritative Corporate Reads, Mysterious sounding Movie Trailers, Entertaining Character Voices through to a range of Voice Sound-A-Likes!


RECORDING and DELIVERY:
-----------------------
Producers can Direct via a phone-line hook-up, and Recording Sessions can be booked in for a time that suits you by giving a few working days notice, though ‘urgent’ VO’s can also be arranged. John can assist with your project, from a simple Voice Over...to a complete Audio Mix down (including Music and/or SFX if required) and is happy to provide further examples of his work. Delivery of finished tracks is primarily via his dedicated FTP Server. Formal quotations can also be provided for larger jobs requiring services other than just his Voice Talent.


Professional, Happy Personality / Takes Direction Well:
-------------------------------------------------------
John is not a shy man and has a fun sense of humor, with a positive outlook on life! He loves the challenge of a new project, is easy to work with and (many say) takes direction well. Once Directors/Producers have worked with John they keep coming back, and many are happy for John to work on his own once a working relationship has been established. John’s favorite work is in Character Voices and he aspires to be a featured, Animated Character Voice in a feature film.
