Voiceover News January 2011

January was an interesting, extremely busy and varied month for our voiceover business:

Ricky Salmon carried out Voice Training on the BA (Hons) Journalism Course at UCA in Farnham, Surrey as well as recording more voiceovers for Elsevier Ross Wilson Archie, on-hold prompts for Hastings Direct and more voiceovers for the Pen Warehouse website.

We welcomed Punjabi, Hindu and Urdu Voiceover Artist Rita Sharma, German Voiceover Artist Julia Effertz, the smoky, lived-in voice of Jennifer Munby and former Sky TV Presenter Viv Creegor. No sooner had we taken on Viv than we got her - along with talented actor Andrew Fallaize - to voice an animation for the BBC's intranet site "Gateway".

For TV and Radio: you can hear Drew White voicing new promos on Classic FM; Lynsey Hooper is the new voice of Sky 2 Continuity; Steph Bower voiced a TV trail for the BBC 2 programme "Posh and Posher" and Ricky Salmon voiced a trail for Mood FM in Jordan.

And in the corporate world, David Vickery, Mike Rogers and Sally Beaumont recorded voiceovers for our NovoSeven DVD. Michelle Horn recorded on-hold prompts for Toyota Insurance. Peter Offer recorded the first batch of voiceovers for a "Prince2" E-learning project. Brian Matthews recorded a voiceover for United Printing and Publishing and Charlotte Gittins and Luis Soto recorded characters for a Ring2 Teleconferencing web animation.

And we made a Voiceover Showreel for aspiring Voiceover Artist Vicky Shotton-Oza.

What a great start to the year - long may it continue!
