It’s that time of year again, as we gear up for that mountain of shopping, family, friends, arguments about what to watch on telly, turkey, booze, indigestion and tonnes of presents! Christmas is nearly upon us, are you ready? I know one person that’s getting all geared up in preparation for Christmas.
The Voice Of Santa
When you think of Christmas, one of the first people that springs to mind in good old Father Christmas. Santa Claus! As a voiceover artist specialising in characters, accents and celebrity impressions, Christmas is a busy time and I’m regularly asked to voice Santa, whether it’s for a radio advert, web video, presentation or animation.
I’ve played Santa for tonnes of clients around the world and was honoured to be asked by UNICEF to be their Santa clause for their online children’s game for the past two years. I’ve also had the privilege of voicing Santa for the BBC, for their online CBeebies drawing game.
He’s always great fun to do impersonate and there’s nothing I like more than to put on my bobbly hat, red costume and big black boots, before heading off into the booth to record… but don’t tell the children ;- )
Here’s an example of what Santa can deliver for you:
If you need elves, snowmen, reindeer or other voices, here’s a brand new Christmas mix, featured lots of fun Christmas characters and a different take on Santa!
Please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to help you get the perfect Santa read of your project.
I’m passionate about delivering the very best voiceover and working with clients to ensure that they receive the style of voice that best represents their brand. If you need me to demo for you, I’ll be more than happy to read for you and if you need characters, then get in touch and we can discuss what you have in mind.
