Sean West

friendly, conversational, & character specialist,

Voice Description

Sexy fun authoritative yet friendly for commercials or web narration, deep warm and adaptable for narrations, smooth professional for presentations or training material, controlled and open to direction with character acting; Very expressive personality and x factor when hosting, interviewing guests, or entertaining and telling jokes.

Sean West is a voice over actor able to meet several of your VO talent needs for narration, documentary, video game voices, anime characters, or impressions.

NARRATION, DOCUMENTARY:
Because of the fine tuning of my voice, I can make several approaches or variations with or without direction. For Example VOICE VARIATIONS directors might use terms such as: normal guy, professorial, fun hang out dude, smooth, sexy, agitated, excited, calming or inspiring; sarcastic or straight; just to name a few. (Tell me what you're looking for...)
From my comedic and broadcasting backgrounds, I can also finely tune beats, rhythm, and inflection.

Using a line of dialogue, I can tune my voice and performance choices after one read. I'm also experienced with improv.

ANIMATION:
I can Imitate CELEBRITIES or CHARACTER voices in movies. (For example: Yoda, Uruk-hai (Lord of the Rings), Emperor Palpatine, Gandalf, Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, gollum, etc etc or caricatures of Sean Connery, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Ventura, Ed Sullivan, Elvis, and many others.)

I also MAKE-UP my own VOICES depending upon the parameters. For example it might be: a stuffy British general, a conservative German, a vampire, a talking animal, a baby crying/talking, flamboyant guy from Beverly hills, cold controlled killer, introspective voice, caveman, viking, Mafia hit man, but can do much more than listed here or can be put on a demo.

I can also imitate the SINGING VOICES of many rock singers some of them include: Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, Johnny Cash, Bono, Sting, Elvis, and more.

Lastly I can imitate non human sounds for example: a trumpet, owl, pigeon, parrot, the wind, ducks, etc etc.
