Lani is a sound guy. He’s passionate about all things audio and especially the creative process that develops the perfect sound mix. As Lani says “You can have a great picture with terrible sound and it simply won’t work, but you can have a terrible picture with great sound…and hey presto, it works!”
The power and sound of the spoken word is his joy. A microphone is all he needs to transform a script into your creative vision, be it a Corporate, Documentary, Television / Radio Campaign, Promos or Retail read.
Lani’s got a great natural depth to his voice, which combined with his neutral accent makes him a favourite amongst advertising agencies when they’re looking for a stand out vocal delivery on a premium brand.
Many advertising agencies, studios, television and radio stations have won awards using Lani’s voice, with deliveries from blockbuster movie trailer style to calm and emotive soft reads to natural narratives… Lani delivers what is required.
Perhaps the standout attribute in Lani’s voiceover deliveries is his acting ability. Lani is the consummate ‘Voice Actor’ with over 30 years’ experience in Stage and Screen both in front and behind the camera. He has appeared in countless productions on the big and small screen (you can view his IMDB page here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0876818/ ) and he has created Screen Acting programmes for NIDA, the Actors Centre, New Zealand Drama School Toi Whakaari, the Actors College for Theatre and Television and has run his own Screen Acting business at Fox Studios Australia.
If you’re after a voice actor with a great voice and range who understands the nuances required for different reads and emotions, Lani is your guy.
