About-pages should not be necessary for voice talents. Not even a picture. It’s the voice you are buying. And if a voice – for example this…
… can’t instill the confidence you require to do business with it, then what is the point letting this voice represent you?
In addition: “The character of a brand, product or service is identified with the voice, much more than with what happens on camera.” (US VO veteran Fred Melamed.)
So it’s very important that you pick a voice from what you hear, not from what you see.
I may add that my voice is well known from several Swedish broadcasting companies and many years of voice recording. Many clients have found it perfect for establishing trust and likeability.
It can be described as deep to medium dark. Voice age 30-50+. Enhanced with a pro studio and my extensive knowledge in both communication and audio production.
I operate through ÖSTERGREN FRIA, a Swedish PRV- & VAT-registered sole proprietorship situated at Allhelgonagatan 5, 118 58 Stockholm, Sweden (”fria” means free, alluding to the freedom of self employment).
I was one of the first 500 founding members of World-Voices Organization and still honor the WOVO Best Practices Code. The World-Voices Organization (WoVO) is a non-profit, international association of voice actors. WoVO works to inform about best practices, standards for ethical conduct and professional expertise.
I specialize in explaining and selling a product, service or brand with what you might call “warm intensity”. Connect online or order your free demo of your manuscript for an explainer video, e-learning, corporate video, documentary, audio book, content marketing, radio spot, podcast commercial, television commercial, internet commercial, youtube intro, podcast intro, web video and other forms of narration and storytelling.
What else? I enjoy a Stockholm inner city and archipelago family life together with a theater executive mother of our two young grown up children. And a cat.
And here is an even longer read about my thoughts on how to find and choose a voice.
