Some Inspiration for the first of March

Many clients have asked me what types of reads they can showcase in their commercial voice reel. The possibilities are endless, from the most pared down Announcer to dialogue with a partner to a special skill like a dialect or even being able to rap - in the most creatively satisfying way.

In order to let you hear some great examples for yourself, I'd like to share the work of some extraordinary actors whose work is featured on my Voice Directing reel. You can find that on my Director page.

With many thanks to the following talent, who appear in this order:

Stuart Hughes

Deborah Drakeford

Alex McCooeye

Annie Chen

Jeff Lillico

Kate Greenhouse

John Jarvis

Damien Atkins

Annie Chen

Eric Charters

Mark Andrada & Alison Brooks

Rachel Wilson & Benjamin Sutherland

Mark Taylor

John Nelles

Andrew Chown

Ed Macdonald

Sheila McCarthy

Andrew Chown

Kyle Gatehouse

Oh, and this work couldn’t have sounded this good without the brilliant engineering wizardry of Spencer Hall, Ian Boddy, Kyle Anderson, Jim Davidson, Brian Bernard and Andrew McCready. 

Enjoy!

Fresh Year, Fresh Reel

Happy New Year!

 

January can typically be a pretty quiet month on the voice-over schedule.

 

How can you take charge of your voice career when your calendar isn’t as full?

 

I always like beginning the year with a demo reel re-brand. This time it was my Commercial reel, which you can listen to on my Actor page.

 

Much of what was already on the reel was still working, meaning the reads are marketable and current.

 

Using material I had booked over the last year, we refreshed it by replacing several dialogue/two-person clips and adding one of the most enjoyable sessions I’ve booked in a long time. It allowed me to channel my inner Nicki Minaj and it’s the last clip on the reel. Who knew?

 

I hope it inspires you to consider a little re-brand of your own.

 

Until next time,

 

Tracey

p.s. A 2-hour edit session can transform your reel. Learn more on the Director page or contact me using the letter icon on the Home page. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Final post of 2016

 

 

2016 has been a year of change, creative & business risks, starting and rekindling creative relationships and a whole lot of growth.

 

It’s been a privilege to work with some extremely talented performers and engineers this year.

 

May the year ahead be a happy, healthy & abundant one.

 

Can’t wait to see what happens next.

 

Until next time,

 

Tracey
