I often think about how lucky I have been over the 12 years or so that I’ve been with RMK. It’s a real privilege to be working daily, doing what I love, for many of Australia’s very best creatives. Working with these writers, producers, directors and sound engineers over the years has enabled me to fine tune and shape my abilities as a voice artist. Their direction has led me to have a real understanding of subtlety, nuance and timing when it comes to the simple act of “reading a script”. Being able to interpret and respond to direction and then be able to add or subtract ½ shades or even ¼ shades of difference to a read has played a big part in keeping me so busy with the wonderful variety of voice jobs that I do each week.
I have also discovered that I have a particular ability with very long scripts – often narrations for complex products like pharmaceuticals and technology. This knack means I am often called upon for these long narrations when time is in short supply, and a client needs to know that we can get through a script quickly and efficiently. Another type of script I love is the Research Narrative – in fact I have created a specific demo of this style.
Please listen to my compilation demo as a starting point. I hope that you might then decide that there’s something special that I can bring to your project. You might also like to visit my own website: simonharvey.com.au.
