For me, one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a voiceover artist is voicing cartoon characters! The sheer range of characters I get presented with is incredible! From talking microwave ovens, to super-hero pigs, sports commentators, grumpy old men and more!
If you type character voiceover into Google you’ll often find examples of people “doing” or “putting on” silly voices. That’s fine as a party trick, but if you shut your eyes, do you believe that the voice or character you’re listening to is genuine? Could this actually be a real person?
Voice Over Training
As a professional voiceover artist, I feel that it’s imperative to keep your tools sharp and that’s why I continue to study with some of the most respected coaches both here in the UK and in the U.S. What I’ve learned from them above all else is when giving a character a voice, it’s vital that the audience believes in it 100%. A poorly executed voice will destroy the animators hard work and lose the audience and my job is to ensure that the character has depth and personality, making it truly convincing.

If you have a character that you would like me to voice, I’ll be very happy to demo a range of styles for you. Just let me know what you need!
