Can we talk about what really is a professional home studio for voiceover?

There’s been a lot of talk on Twitter today about voiceovers working from their professional home studios in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Your Safe Space: a guided meditation

As I imagine many of you are, I’m feeling quite anxious at the moment. I’m making sure I practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day, get some sunshine on my face as soon as I spot any, and try not to endlessly feed myself news from social media. I know that as a voice over I’m…

Voiceover for Toyota: Start Your Impossible

As a voiceover, I am often the very last piece in a long and complicated puzzle. I’m fully aware that days, weeks, and sometimes months of preparation have gone into a project before I get the call, and I aim to step up the mic without making a drama, read the words as they’ve been…
