I'm the voice of this great new Alexa skill
Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world, so it was obviously great when they got in touch. They told me about the project, sent the script, and I was on board immediately. They asked me for a friendly, up-beat character as the purpose of Yak Talk Back was to encourage families to express themselves better by sharing more than one or two-word answers. I summoned up my friendliest voiceover style possible and they were very happy with the result. Needless to say, there was a lot of script to get through here, but I enjoyed every minute of it. If you'd like to hear some more of my voiceovers that are similar to this, check out my Articulate, Girafun, and Bugs in the Kitchen videos.
Yak Talk Back is unlike anything I've ever worked on in my long career as a voiceover artist. Amazon describes it as... "An entertaining and highly produced smart speaker interactive story experience aimed at stimulating conversation to help families share their day." It is designed for families who are having issues talking to each other — especially where people only give one-word answers. This Alexa skill encourages people to give a little back story, developing you and your family into much better communicators. This, of course is perfect for kids, and the tone of the whole skill is targetted at children, but older people could benefit from using it to.
You've read this far, so I reckon there's a good chance you may be interested in working with me. Whether it's an explainer video, a TV ad, or some other job that requires one of my character voiceovers, I am always happy to hear from new people. So don't hesitate to get in touch. And, if it makes things easier for you, I'll be happy to send back a free voiceover sample read from your script. This way, you can hear whether I'm a good fit for your brand or the specific project you're working on.
