I spend a lot of my time producing voiceovers, consulting VOs on their studio set-ups & upgrades, and training VOs in production techniques. I am, these days, what you’d call a veteran of the industry and have produced thousands of radio ads, telephone on hold & IVR messages, television content, railway station announcements, corporate VOs,… Continue reading Fit-for-purpose audio
So I haven't been blogging. It's because I've been busy working, and what a couple of months it's been. I've been very busy with some really great projects so I thought I'd just tell you a bit about some of what I've been up to. I've been working in some voiceover production studios around Manchester… Continue reading Update

The standard I receive can vary, sometimes the levels are a bit too low/high, sometimes the room isn’t as well treated as it could be.

So… Continue reading Mic choice for VOs

Over the course of this year I’ve been reading quite a few blogs written by people involved in the VO industry. Some have been written by voiceovers, and some by producers… Continue reading Try not to breathe
Those of you who follow me on Twitter ( @bee_productive ) or like my Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/BeeProductive ) will have heard mention of VOX over recent months. VOX is an event that has now happened, and here is my account of it! Firstly just a quick explanation of what VOX is. VOX is the UK's conference for all… Continue reading Vox 2013
