Commercials are one of the most popular and important areas of the voiceover industry. There are many different types of commercials and different places they can be seen or heard. There are high energy, comedic, serious, luxurious, intimate and many other types of commercials. Airing on television, radio and online, commercials are usually around 30 seconds long (although there are some exceptions). An important skill in commercial recordings is being able to make your read faster or slower if required without losing any of the performance. Commercials are used to sell products, services and experiences. They are used to inform and educate or inspire. There is a lot of commercial work out there as there are so many different TV channels around the world. Most radio stations have commercials and the internet is saturated with them.

My name is Alan and I am a British voice actor based in Leeds, UK.
I have a friendly, story-telling charm to my voice with a small hint of a Northern English accent. I can create a range of powerful character voices for Animation and Gaming. Additionally, I can also provide informative, conversational and relaxed voices for Commercial and Corporate use.

I have worked in the Performing Arts industry for over 20 years. Having worked in Theatre, TV, Performance Capture, Film and VO I am passionate about bringing characters to life no matter what situation or genre they are needed for.

I am confident working with clients all over the world from my high spec home studio but I am more than happy to commute if that is to my client's preference. My aim is to bring your projects to life in the smoothest way possible for you. Every production will be of the highest quality and will be delivered within any deadline given.

I could continue writing words but at this point I would love for you to experience the power I can bring to your projects. Please do have a listen to my reels and a read of my reviews via my website and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, until then!

Enjoy the show!
