dB Talent, Austin
Bill is a male voiceover talent working out of Dallas, Texas. He has a private digital studio with free ISDN and Source Connect availability but also steps up to the mic at many of the world class studios in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
He also has analog phone-patch in the home studio allowing you to supervise the session over the phone, then receive your files right away via email or FTP.
Bill's voice is described as warm, sophisticated, classy, yet versatile. He can give you a National Geographic style film narration, a cranky boss, or a West Texas dairy farmer with two missing fingers.
Bill's voice falls in the 35-55 age range. His natural pitch is lower mid-range to low. (But not "VOG" deep.)
He spent many years as a copywriter and audio producer. He knows how to tell your story from the writer's perspective. He is very good at painting pictures in your customer's mind using your words, and is easy to direct.
Another of Bill's skills (is poetry--no, just kidding) is the ability to read copy really fast. He spent a number of years doing the fast legal tags for Nationwide Insurance and one of the Miller Lite brands.
Bill is represented by The Campbell Agency in Dallas. Dial 214-522-8991 Ask for Nancy Johnson or Sharon.
Or call dbTalent in Austin 512-292-1030. Ask for Debora or Alison.
Call or email them anytime for a custom audition of your material, or to check for rates, conflicts, and availability. They are all great people, will take care of your needs, and are much smarter than Bill about what it will cost.
(For the technical folks) Bill's private studio is of isolated room-within-a-room construction with excellent protection from outside noise. It was designed by an audio engineer. (And built by a carpenter with two missing fingers--just kidding.)
The primary microphone is a Sennheiser MKH-416 short shotgun, a voice-over standard on the West Coast. Also available is a hand modified Oktava large diaphram condenser, and a couple of Beyer Dynamic ribbon mics.
Audio is recorded on an Intel Mac. Bill has Pro Tools but prefers the light and nimble Amadeus Pro. (Firing up Pro Tools to record a dry voice track is like opening Photoshop to re-size a picture--massive overkill--but that's just an opinion.)
The ISDN codec is a Musicam PrimaLT. It talks to most other boxes out there. Bill can also recommend a couple of bridging services for incompatible codecs.
