Let’s talk about Graeme
Graeme is a born and raised Haligonian. No – this is not a person from a Star Trek planetoid who will likely die two-thirds of the way through the episode – but rather a person from Halifax, a city on Canada’s east coast.
What they say
"I've just finished a marathon session with Graeme for Breaking Point [a Discovery Channel TV series], and I just wanted to say what a real joy it was to work with him. Luckily he 'got' the sense of the project from the get-go, so we really flew at it. Time was very tight for this record, and he found the tone and register straight away. But what was really great was that he teased out stuff in the VO that really added to the feel of the show for us. We've got a cracking series now. Also, as always, the VO record threw up the usual oddities, bloopers and confusions that appear at the final pass, and he was fantastic at helping solve them editorially on-the-fly. Which is always handy for a flustered producer! It was lovely to have someone who felt part of the team, rather than just knocking off lines."
Graeme made our first experience working with a voice actor very enjoyable. His approach was relaxed and professional. We will definitely be using his talents again for future elearning projects. He was more than willing to adjust his delivery to meet our specific needs. He tooth time to set up a call and "rehearse" the narration with us to make sure the final product would be exactly what w were looking for. The turnaround was quick and ahead of our deadline. It's refreshing to work with someone who cares about our project as much as we do.
Beyond a mere "announcer," Graeme is a voice artist. What this means to me is he sounds like the voice I hear in my head while I write scripts-only less nasal. Some people just "get" the way a script is supposed to be read. Graeme is one of those people.
"Working with Graeme on voiceover work is a pleasure. It’s rare to find to someone who is invested completely in your project, no matter how big or small. Files were delivered promptly and professionally. It’s always wonderful to work with someone who makes my job easier! Graeme comes highly recommended."
We hire a lot of voice artists for online learning projects. Narration is generally wanted "yesterday" for a project that's already over budget and over time. Graeme helped get our large project completed easily and efficiently; which doesn't always happen. He was always quick to respond to any questions, provided us with multiple tempo and post processing options and when we made our choices, turned our very large project around in an incredibly short time. I'd recommend Graeme for any voice project, his customer service exceeded our expectations; we'll definitely consider him for our next course.
Great stuff, Graeme - the second take was exactly what I had in mind. It's been an absolute pleasure working with you. The digital phone patch is a huge advantage over my typical "send the script and hope" process!
