A voice that amazes, convinces, charms, explains and sells
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, I have only been pursuing voice work this year. You can find voice samples here.
I have been performing for as long as I can remember, here are some career points.
2019 Ol’ King Cole, Stage, Gertie Gumdrops (Panto Dame)
2018 Arsenic and Old Lace, Stage, Teddy Brewster (Main Character, a comedic role in a very, very dark comedy, Teddy cheerfully believes that he is Teddy Roosevelt, and lives his whole life in character, a great opportunity to play a dual role, and develop an accurate Roosevelt impression, several fast changes were required)
2018 Walk In Wilderness, Music Video with additional dialogue, The Priest (Lead Character, a serious dramatic role including improvised dancing, showing the deep inner emotions of a man of great public reserve)
2018 Father Christmas (live improvisation with members of the public, including children)
2018 Guards! Guards!, Stage, Sergeant Colon (Main Character, a comedic military/police sergeant role, strong development arc, lots of character shouting parade-ground style, a Terry Pratchett adaptation)
2018 Hide ‘em in the Hole, Music Video with additional Dialogue, The Floor Manager (A deadpan comic role, a 1980s TV Channel worker challenges and removes what he believes to be a fake band booked for a music show, this also included redubbing for technical issues)
2018 Maplebrook Wills, Advert, Redubbing/Voiceover (dialogue replacement)
2018 Riff, Short Film, Billy Barrett (Main Character, the antagonist in a mock-documentary, a slightly sleazy, dubiously cockney, record producer, running a talent contest as a cheap way to sign and exploit talent, comic timing was essential, and working at length with the director to develop a deep background was very rewarding)
2018 Cinderella, Stage, Dark Despair, (Main Character, Panto Demon, developed a strong ‘Demon Voice’, included Ad Lib Jokes)
2017 The Ladykillers, Stage, Major Courtney (Main Character, a 1940’s Con-man with a supposed military and upper-class background, rapidly changes from bold to cowardly and back, has a hidden side, a comedic role in a dark comedy)
2017 Very Free Range Eggs, Advert, Narration/Voice-over (An enthusiastic voice-over about very free range chickens)
2016 Brooklands Museum, Documentary, Narration/Voice-over (Narration for a short documentary about a vintage aircraft and motoring museum on a historic motor-racing track and airfield)
2015 Digico, Corporate Video, CEO (Main Character, a CEO of a fictionalised tech/media company introducing his team)
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
