It’s always really nice when a company decides to choose your voice and then STICK with it! I have been the Dutch voice for American Express for many years now and this month I did a couple of updates for them. Apart from that, a film trailer for Annie! Coming to a screen near you soon
After a lengthy audition and a long wait (”don’t call us, we’ll call you”) I finally got the call to tell me I was the chosen voice for 20 product videos for Sony in Dutch. Fab! The text was actually quite technical but as “the voice” you of course have to sound like you know all this stuff inside out! So I learned a lot about their latest digital cameras, headphones and lots of other gizmos. Nice.
I just recorded an audio guide dedicated to the author Astrid Lindren. She’s famous for her children’s book Pippi Longstocking, which is well known in Holland as “Pippie Langkous” (try and pronounce that I used to read her books as a child so it was really nice to do this audio guide. It’s set in the museum in Astrid’s birthplace, Vimmerby, in Sweden.
March was a really busy month! I was excited to get a new client, Mercedes Benz. I also recorded all the inflight entertainment for Air France. Did you know there is something like “Air France chat”? That means you can chat to other passengers on the plane via your tv console and handset. All very sensible if you’re a family or travelling with friends. But you can invite anyone you like to the live chat….hmm I quite fancy the passenger in 4 C :-)))
