Rob Rownd

Regionless and all the American dialects.

Voice Description

Trained. My regular speaking voice is a deep rich intelligent baritone. I've rented it out to sell: Beer, eye glasses, cars, clothing, IT services, insurance, crackers, And to narrate Sports, adventure travel, and historical documentaries.

Wacky. I'm from North of Chicago and worked in Improv theater since High School. I have absolutely no fear of totally committing to an idea and trying anything. I'm very quick in the booth and like a challenge. In the past ten months I've been everything from a Zen Monk calmly selling routers to a fabulously flamboyant internationally known Fashionista having a pre big-show-in-Milan breakdown.

My Voice Experience

I was a film editor in Los Angeles and Chicago for ten years and came to Asia in 2004 to consult on a production studio being developed built. When that contract was over I elected to stay here and segued into first On camera and then voice over character acting. I've been making my living doing this since 2009. For voice, I have done over 50 commercials, two animated series, documentary episodes of adventure travel and corporate presentations.

Since I've been a producer and a picture editor (Avid and Final Cut Pro), I can offer casting, multiple character recording and sound editing services as well. My Studio uses both Pro-tools and Final Cut Pro and we can record to picture for ADR including dubbing Foreign Language programing into English.

My Training

MFA Film Northwestern University 1993.
MA RTF (Media History) Northwestern University 1988.

My Studio Equipment

Sennheiser and Electro-Voice Microphones Running to both
1) Pro-tools LE v 8.0 (MAC based)
2) Final Cut Pro v 6.0.

Our booth is properly sound proofed and can hold four actors for crowd work as needed.

Additional Skills

I'm an American ex-pat who emigrated to the Philippines in 2004.

I worked in Post production as a picture editor and producer for ten years in Chicago and Los Angeles before becoming a character actor and voice over talent after moving to Asia. We offer complete voice acting and recording services including directing and sound editing.

I can bring you 8 experienced voice over actors (five male three female) aged 20-55 with a sound studio. We can send you completed synced to picture pro-tools or Final Cut Pro program files or the individual lines of narration as separate Wav files. 

We’re based in Manila and have done the voicing on dozens of Thai, Hong Kong and Chinese films dubbed into North American English and literally hundreds of English language Television Commercials for local and international production companies.

About half of our company either grew up in the States or the UK and the other half can sound like they did. 
I think we can provide you with a premium service for English language content at a very reasonable price.
