As both an actor and voice actor – it’s always wonderful to flex the vocal muscles on a dramatic voice project. For the Pirate Experience exhibition on one of the Caribbean islands , I was asked to provide the voice of infamous historical pirate “Calico” Jack Rackham – the inspiration for Jack Sparrow in the recent movie franchise. I was also hired to voice the featured pirate characters on board Jack’s ship “The Rusty Parrot”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_Jack

Sometimes a job comes along that makes you smile from ear to ear. Recently I had the joy of sitting behind a microphone, channeling my best LIAM NEESON impression and saying the words “May The Force Be With You” along with many other phrases. I was recording the voice of QUI-GON JINN for a new Star Wars Toy – part of the Disney Force Link Band 2 series. Read more
As an actor and voice actor of 20 years – it’s always a pleasure to work within the more dramatic dimensions of voiceover work. During the summer I was delighted to record a deep trailer voiceover, promoting a new video game “Champions Rising: Legends of Elusia” by NEXON Mobile. Initially I auditioned, as requested, with two specific voice styles; a voice similar to Colin Firth (in Kingsman) and a British version of Richard Epcar’s gravelly tones. You can hear my audition clips below – recorded on iPhone and tweaked on iMac.
Once cast, I recorded the promo at the wonderful Shepperton Studios (Pinewood Group). It was a very dynamic session – being directed simultaneously by the Shepperton studio team and the NEXON production team in South Korea. The Firth and Epcar clips demonstrated the flexibility needed to land the role – yet when it came to the recording day I was asked to provide two other voices:- (1) Dramatic Voice of God (2) Grandpa/Professor – with an emotional world weary sound. The Voice of God version was used, as heard in the video excerpt below. It’s always fun being asked to improvise and develop new voices as needed in the recording session – and great to see very happy clients!
I’m delighted that my voice work on this gaming project has been nominated for the One Voice Awards 2018 in the category Best Male Performance – Gaming.
