Secret Life of Pets 2 | Movie Trailer Voiceover

I was delighted to record this TV Commercial / Movie-Trailer voiceover for Animal Friends Insurance in association with the new animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets 2”. The commercial promotes a New York Holiday Competition interspersed with some fun clips from the film. I was asked to create an unusual hybrid voice; a neutral/RP English accent with dramatic style and a hint of classic movie trailer gruffness here and there – especially on the last line “Only in Cinemas”.
