Voice Over

Glen at mic_Waistcoat.jpg

As a voice over artist with more than 35 years experience, I've had the great pleasure of working at some fantastic organisations and with truly inspiring people at London Weekend Television, TVS, network ITV, the History Channel and National Geographic. In that role I wrote, produced and presented 'live' continuity announcements and recorded programme promotions. I voice a wide variety of TV, radio and online commercials along with promotional trailers and 'Voice of God' announcements. Much of my work is now for online learning production companies, supplying instructional, descriptive content which has become ever more popular during the Covid Lockdown.

My other voice-over work includes presentations, infomercials, narration, IVR (on-hold telephone prompts), corporate and multi-media productions.

FAQs

What is your voice style?


I can tailor my voice to fit your project delivering most types of script from hard corporate, medium to soft sell. No accent - in other words, Queens English or RP (Received Pronunciation) Age range - adult/senior.




What projects do you work on?


If your project requires a voice, then I'd love to help you. Anything from commercials, promotions (trailers) for radio, tv, online, cinema, social media etc. E-learning content, audiobooks, narration, telephone 'on-hold' prompts, personal recorded voice-messages.




Do you have your own studio set-up?


Like most professional voice-over artists these days, I have my own fully equiped studio and can work remotely. If you book my services, you can listen across the session via all of the familiar methods - Skype, phone-patch, Zoom, Microsoft Teams etc - please ask when booking.




Will you travel for a voice-over session?


Of course, if you would rather I attend a booking then travelling is not a problem. After all, before home studios became the norm, all voice-over talent had to travel, sometimes many hundreds of miles. It wasn't unusual to journey half way around the UK to record ads for local commercial radio.




Do you work in a LIVE environment?


I've spent many years in 'live' television and radio working as a presenter, continuity announcer, news reader and as a track-side motor racing commentator. I thrive on working under pressure and to tight deadlines. If your event requires a LIVE announcer, presenter or a 'Voice of God' then let's talk!




What are your rates?


My fees are fair and in line with the industry. Every project and budget is different and no job is too small. Rates can be negotiated and are always open for discussion. After all, I would rather work with you than not! Fees include one recording and one alteration/pickup session. Anything above this will incur an extra cost.




Will you record a demo version of my script?


The usual answer to this would be no, however in some circumstances where a decision needs to be made on a number of different voice artists chasing the same job, then some of the script can be voiced. The normal process would be to record a few lines, this avoids unlawful usage of the full version.




Will you edit the audio file?


Recorded audio will always be tidied up before being returned to the client. Many customers prefer the raw file so that they can add any compression, effects etc. If clients like completed audio to be 'de-breathed' - this can be discusssed when the session is booked.

"Glen recorded some voice overs for a TV programme I was directing and editing. He performed well, delivered on time and made various very last minute changes to accommodate a nightmare edit, so I met the transmission deadline and the show went out fine. First class and reliable, I look forward to future opportunities to book Glen."

"Glen and I were a great team - he's loyal, supportive and great fun! He was a totally reliable work colleague - if you want a professional broadcaster and a safe pair of hands you don't need to look any further than GT."
