In January 2016 I was asked to voice the TV and radio adverts for SCS Furniture. It was an honour as they had been voiced previously by the great Peter Dickson of X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent fame. The sessions were fun to do and we had a lot of material to get through. The girl featured in the tv commercials had already voiced her parts, the “gimme 5!” lines and I had to fit my lines in the gaps, with lots of energy and a big smile in my voice!
It’s very easy to make these type of adverts sound cheesy and way over the top, remember the old Queensway adverts where the voiceover SHOUTED ALL THE OFFERS AT YOU?!! This wasn’t the direction that they wanted to go down, but SCS certainly wanted them to be upbeat and energetic, without going overboard.
