= SERVICES FOR PRODUCERS =============================

If you are a producer, director, script-writer, advertising agency -
anybody
who's involved with choosing voice talent for their productions remember
that www.voiceovers.co.uk can help.

We are not an agency: This is an important point - we do not charge
producers to use our search facility, as the site is financed by
subscription fees from the voices themselves.  Because we are not an
agency,
we do not book the voices on the producers behalf, but we are able to:-

- Distribute project briefs to the talent listed at voiceovers.co.uk

  If you have an outline of a project and simply want to gauge response,
costings, availability and suitability all you need to do is send an e-mail
to info@voiceovers.co.uk and we will forward it to the relevant voices.

- Request showreels on your behalf

  If you need to receive updated showreels from the talent at
voiceovers.co.uk, or would like to receive demos from voices that meet a
specific criteria (eg. all female; Australian accent; Access to ISDN etc.
etc.) then send your needs to info@voiceovers.co.uk and we will filter the
necessary voices for you.

We are also able to provide details of UK studios, ISDN relays and other
utilities and facilities.

I'm now in the middle of a medical teaching series narration, to be
used by a medical university, consisting of 19 video tapes in one
series and 13 in another.  Much fun and great challenge reading all the
medical terms, especially names of chemicals and making it sound like
I know what I'm talking about!

I also did narration tour for "World War II Seen Thru Russian Eyes"
exhibit, which was extremely interesting.

Just finished a series of videos for FedEx for their special worldwide
meetings involving their high-tech people.

Just finished a series of network radio commercials for The Legacy Group
and Safe Trek Outfitters, as well as a :60 second network spot for
Grundig Radio's YB400 receiver.

Just finished video narration for AGATE, which is the
government/industry/academia partnership for testing and certifying
new composite materials for the aircraft industry.

Just finished tv voiceover for Towery Press for national spot buy.

Numerous local/regional voiceovers/narrations too.

Yes, I've been busy, but not busy enough!  I'd love to work for you
soon...and OFTEN

=> News from JILL WOOD
=> http://www.voiceovers.co.uk/jill.wood
=> Starting Out/Aspiring Section

Jill has just landed a part in a training video. The parts quite short -
only 28 words!  Jill takes the role of a reporter in a helicopter.  You
might get to hear it in her new showreel which is due out in a couple of
weeks.

As well as a multitude of voices, Jill has quite a few other talents.  She
is a freelance writer of features, news stories and rare poetry.  Jill has
done some scriptwriting and knows how to write to time and for speech.  She
can also edit and proof-read.  Some of the topics she has written about
include; horses, cats, natural mothering, white goods, naturism (no she's
not!), Tetrapak, town criers, spot creams, canal boats, and skydive
simulators.

Jill spends some of her spare time dowsing, both with the rod and the
pendulum, although not at the same time!
She says any reader booking her for a voice job during the month of
November
can have a free dowsing session ( - I assume that's UK only - Paul!) or a
bespoke poem, done for them - once payment has been made for the recording
session naturally!

=> News from TALI ISERLES
=> http://www.voiceovers.co.uk/new
=> Starting Out/Aspiring Section

Greetings and hallucinations!
I've been a busy bee over the past year, writing and taking pics for five
magazines, creating havoc on the wheels of steel once a week as DJ
Delicious, and making my TV presenting debut on Red TV. Whew! Not to
mention
a fun-filled trip Down Under which found me writing an article for the
"Guardian", stroking furry marsupials, guesting on two Melbourne radio
stations (Triple R and Joy Melbourne) and going clubbing with a mission -
to
review the Aussie scene for Ministry of Sound online. It's a hard life!

My nickname at the BBC (where I produced a radio youth show and presented
features and trailers for a number of different programmes) was Little Miss
Chatterbox - so a career where I'm actually encouraged to use my voice is
perfect for the girl who was forced to do a sponsored silence at Secondary
School!
