Relatable Explainer, Approachable Business Executive, Friendly, Everyman Warmth

Voice Description

___________________________

Michael Saunders is an experienced, creatively adept voice-over talent with one overarching goal: bringing impact to client projects!

As a home-studio equipped FULL-TIME voice talent, he has the flexibility to meet the strictest of deadlines.

National or international. 24 hour (and often, same day) turnaround on mixed down, production ready audio files is his standard metric.

Ego-less and directable, can-do attitude.

SCRIPT INTERPRETATION SKILLS + PIPES GO BEST WITH...

-Impactful, authoritative corporate presentations that either provide business data, sales information and/or a clear and compelling call to action

-Controlled technical, medical and industrial narration

-Unaffected (natural), upbeat commercial scripts that require a conversational, everyman sensibility. Think: "Howdy neighbor! Man o' Man, lawn sure looks great...beer?"

-Educational media, e-Learning, training videos

-Rugged "spec heavy" scripts that appeal to the tactically talented (police, military, security), gear-heads, truck guys/gals and outdoor sports enthusiasts. Michael can also do an intense "gravel tone" when the script requires it.

Additional Skills

Michael believes that WORKFLOW PLANNING is an underrated skill. That said, he approaches each project with (3) main focus areas in mind:

1) Speed. Clients have critical deadlines which must be met on a consistent basis. Check the ego at the door...be flexible...be thorough...listen to the client...get the job done!

2) Accuracy and Quality. Respect the copy/script as written. From a technical perspective, mixed down audio files need to be of superior quality and error free. Analog voice and digi-technology must blend in a meaningful and wonderful way.

3) Ease of interaction. Hire to project completion process should be fluid, professional, efficient...and enjoyable!

Michael is also a musician (drummer) and lyricist.
