For example if you need a TVC voice artist (TV commercial voice over) you should listen to whichever category will best suit the style and mood of the commercial you are producing. Likewise if you need a TV promo voice artist or radio voice over style for station promos, listen to the “promos” sample. Your geographical location doesn’t matter at all. Although he’s a Sydney v/o, Simon often works as a voice artist in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and beyond by directly linking to other studios via ISDN, Source Connect or mp3. This means you can listen in and direct the session as if you were there yourself from anywhere in the world. One of the voice samples above is called “Research Narration” and it’s possible that Simon Harvey is the first voice artist to ever offer a demo of this type. A research narration is recorded by an advertising agency in the early stages of planning an advertising campaign. The narration verbally describes the idea that writers and art directors are thinking of turning into a TV ad. Often the narration accompanies some simple sketch type drawings on screen and is shown to sample audiences to gauge their response to the proposed TV ad. This is what is called putting an idea “into research”.
