How ironic! I’m 18 weeks pregnant (which is the most amazing news ever, I hasten to add) and voiced this for Tens Care recently. My character is concerned about the pain of labour (!). I haven’t thought that far ahead yet but maybe a Perfect Mama Tens may come in handy.
I really like voicing projects like this one – adding a human touch to a large, corporate organisation. The best way to explain what a business does is with a quick video. Acora Ltd got this one spot on. It sits neatly on their homepage and gives new clients a quick round up of how they can help.
I worked with SMC Ford in Kent to produce these short promos for the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line and Vignale. Call me weird, but I love the smell of brand new cars!
Wow, it’s been a great few months in my voiceover world. Ever since I updated my kit and bought a sexy new interface, I’ve had a new air of confidence and vigour. I’ve also been developing my vocal range and working on the business side of things with Guy Michaels from Voiceover Kickstart. I signed up for his 6 week free voiceover course, which has really motivated me to up my game. I highly recommend signing up for the course to anyone wanting to further their voiceover career. So, over the next few months, I’ll have a new website, new demos and hopefully a few new clients to work with. Here are some snippets of a handful of projects I’ve been working on this year so far.
Feel free to contact me to discuss your voiceover needs for;
- E-Learning & digital training platforms
- Web Video
- Explainer Video
- Phone Messaging
- Radio & TV Commercials
- Pretty much anything that needs a professional female voice!
I worked with the British Tinnitus Association on this fabulous video. They offer support for those who suffer from Tinnitus (persistent ringing or buzzing in the ears). It can be a debilitating condition. As a voiceover artist, I rely on my ears so much whilst I record and edit audio. I take it for granted that I can listen, without interruption from other noises. However, I am conscious of protecting myself and will always wear ear plugs when I go to a gig. I must be growing up!
“When you’re climbing a mountain, sometimes it’s good to look back at how far you’ve come”. A quote from my very good friend (who obvs nicked it from someone very famous).
As I sat thinking of what I’d like to achieve this year, I was inclined to look through some of the work I’ve already done. I remember these shoots very well. The feature for SMEG was filmed on one of the hottest days of the year. We filmed it in a showroom where ALL of the fires had to be kept on for prospective customers. OMG, I was so hot. Thank the Lord for Mac Studio Fix Pressed Powder. On the flip side, the feature for Premier Range (bottom) was filmed in a Lancashire showroom in the middle of winter. There was zero heating. It may look cosy and warm but it was freezing cold. I was probably wearing Ugg Boots. I remember loving the part where I had to switch on the hob as I got a lovely blast of hot air.
All part of being a presenter. It ain’t all glam, but there definitely are worse ways to make a living.
Anyone who knows me understands how important nutrition and health are to me. I didn’t take a year out to do a Nutrition MSc (and nearly explode from it) for nothing! So, when my good friend and great camera man Joe Binks asked me to voice a whiteboard animation for an NHS healthy eating initiative, I was in.
Talking of nutrition, a few months ago, I launched my own range of ‘healthy’ chocolate and other refined sugar free treats at a farmers market in Cheshire. More about my Make It Healthy brand can be found here.
