Lawrence Kaiser

Deep-voiced, sophisticated, elegant and authoritative mature actor

Voice Description

First, I have a deep bass voice (I sing basso profundo in chorus and occasionally, opera). For voice over, it is applicable to narration, spokesman, and audio books. It fits the "voice of God" and "testosterone" categories. iI can also be quietly seductive and sexy as I demonstrate in my "Come to Bermuda" demo spot, and crisply authoritative for business /financial spots and upscale products such as Cadillac, BMW, Lexus. .

My Voice Experience

I first undertook voice over training in 1992 and soon after did a narration job. it was a long script that took several days to record and required me to create about a dozen distinct voices. Unfortunately, a copy of the narration that was promised me was never sent. I went into college teaching a short while later and am only now , retired from teaching, returning to pursue voice over work.

My Training

My undergrad degree was in English and i graduated Summa Cum Laude, Honors English with a GPA of 3.9, then was a awarded a full fellowship from Stanford for their Ph.D. After three years there, I entered UC San Diego's professional actors training program where i earned an MFA in Theatre. I have worked as a professional stage actor for more than 30 years and have been a member of Actors Equity since 1998. I work primarily as a classical actor with close to 15 Shakespeare productions along. Additionally, I'm a classically trained bass singer, having sung in close to 100 classical concerts and a dozen operas. I am also a poet and fiction writer, and, along with having taught literature and writing for 22 years, I am particularly sensitive to language as well as using voice to express it. . . . . Voice over training began with Dan Duckworth in the late '80s followed by a ten week class with Charles Michel and for past two years with Steve Harris, who produced my two voice over demos. All three teach in NYC.

My Studio Equipment

I have a simple home studio: The ICS Blueball mic, a mic recording acoustic isolation shield with a pop filter, and I use Audacity recording software on my home computer.

Additional Skills

As noted on my acting resume, and demonstrated on my character-accent-dialect demo, I excel at accents and dialects and have sung classical choral music/opera in 11 languages. As I said above, as a writer and former college writing teacher, i am particularly sensitive and attuned to language and what words and voice can do.
