I had a lot of fun with this one!
I love getting to a northern English voice in ads — mostly because so many ads just have standard RP accents. So, when Willerby Holiday Homes got in touch with me and asked me to do a sort of taking-the-piss northern style, I jumped at the opportunity. It also helped that the script was great! This is a company that doesn't take itself too seriously, and I really like that. If you would like to hear another great example of my Northern voiceover, check out my Sheffield Starvideo. I think most northern accents have a warmth about them that is underused in advertisements; and I'd love to use my northern voice in an explainer video
Willerby Holiday Homes is a specialist company that makes and sells holiday homes. Some people know them as static caravans, but holiday homes sounds a little better! Willerby Holiday Homes has been around since 1946 and they're a bit of a British institution, to be honest. I work with companies all over the world, and I love that about my job, but it's nice sometimes to just work with someone who isn't far up the road. If you want to hear what other voices I can do, you might like to listen to my character showreel.
If you're working on a project and you need something like this northern voiceover — perhaps for a commercial or an explainer video, then please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'mm always happy to hear from new companies. And, if you need a little more help working out if I'm right for your brand, I'm more than happy to provide a free sample voiceover from your script.
