Variety is the spice of life!

May 5, 2022
Amongst other things, April 2022 saw me arriving in the 90s to interview the subject of a legendary headline, getting medical, travelling to far off planets to sport a false mandible and providing my voice for an Italian pasta chef and for a group of ads for a major electronics company.

Never let it be said that I will be typecast and here's to an equally varied May!



 

Kiss It!

March 25, 2022
I’ve often said that I love to take on the unusual projects and that I’m not afraid of something a bit different…
Well, this music video for Transatlantic duo, Ready, Steady Die! was certainly different. 
I got to work again with a favourite director of mine, Max Clendaniel and he even came to my neck of the woods to work with the wonderfully creative Immix Media. Max took the band’s fantastic song and seed of an idea and created a wonderful story, full of humour and surprises!
It’s be...

Saying goodbye...

February 8, 2022
After sterling work from Max Clendaniel slotting together various clips I threw at him to make a cohesive new comedy showreel it is time to say goodbye to my old comedy reel which served me well, over a long while.

So, I'm sharing it here one last time!

It’s a funny old world!

December 16, 2021
Having recently dipped a toe or two into various comedic roles from music videos to corporate films to Spanish tourism and even prank videos, it was a delight to receive this praise today:

“Had a look at the footage earlier, it is so unbelievably funny! You are very much the new standard for casting and we’ll definitely be in touch with more work.” Kieran Jenvey, Producer - Dirty Jack

Camping trip…

July 18, 2021
A shot from a stills campaign for Devon’s finest, Burts Crisps, appearing across the county and neighbouring Cornwall on billboards and in service stations. It doesn’t always happen, so it’s nice to see the final results from what was a wonderful and fun shoot.

Voiceover

March 23, 2021
I begin the recording of another audiobook tomorrow and I am grateful for the brilliant quality my booth has been providing this year. This new book will be produced remotely by a producer I've not worked with before, over speedy fibre broadband, using CleanFeed. 

The booth has been getting a lot of use and has already paid for itself emotionally as it works its way to doing so financially!

I've recorded everything from calm breathing techniques to shouty vikings and I'm looking forward to all ...

Double Figures

September 27, 2020
As I await the release to audible of my ninth and tenth audiobooks, I am reflecting on my work in this area and the pleasure it's brought me.

My favourite story to narrate has to have been Suzanne Kelman's A View Across The Rooftops, set in Amsterdam in 1941.

Some of the quotes from audible listeners are below:

"I couldn't stop listening from the very beginning. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing these characters and their anguish of living during the war to life...It deserves more than f...

Double Glazing!

August 25, 2020
As work returns to pre-lockdown levels and I’m venturing out to Covid safe studios for more shoots and recordings, I wanted to share the work of the brilliant Lorentz Gullachsen from a stills and video shoot for London estate agents, Marsh and Parsons.

Uniquely Unprecedented Universe

June 3, 2020
As we come out of Covid-19 lockdown gradually and start to see the re-opening of some businesses, but continued closure of others, I am reflecting on my good fortune to be able to work from home on voiceover projects, even though cancelled filming projects are yet to re-materialise. I have always been an optimist, so will look forward to new ways of working, seeing family and colleagues again and enjoy the opportunities I had during these trying times and the projects that came out of them.
