British Commercial Voice Over by Jamie Muffett
Commercials these days aim to connect with customers in a personal way. Your audience doesn’t want to be told what to do, they want to be talked to on an equal footing, in a friendly, natural and down to earth way. Jamie Muffet expertly delivers commercial voice over that accomplishes this goal and more.
A voice that engages is much more powerful than one that shouts. For this reason, commercial voiceover should be about connecting and relating, whether it is a serious subject, something light and fun, or cool and professional.
This personal style of delivery is broadly adopted by many categories of commercial voiceover, including:
- Electronics and communication
- Food and beverage
- Health and beauty
- Home and real estate
- Luxury goods
- And more!
All genres, all styles and all intentions benefit from a voice that speaks to the audience in an authentic way that drives across the meaning and is easily understood.
Connecting with the Message of Your Ad Copy
The most effective way to connect with an audience and transmit a message is for the voice actor to connect with the copy and present it truthfully in the moment. Jamie takes the time to learn your brand, understand the message and the market, listen to the producer, and deliver a truthful performance each and every time.
Conversational and Natural Commercial Voice Over
It’s easy to sell something when you are passionate about the product, and it is the voice actor’s job to generate that passion for every commercial project in order to sell effectively. Imagination and creativity play a huge role in delivering a conversational read. Knowing who he’s speaking to, why and how he’s saying it is a hallmark of Jamie’s work. Spending time learning your brand and understanding the audience brings much more to every session than just a nice voice. Voice over is part of your brand’s ongoing conversation with your customer, and it is vitally important that the voice actor fully understands what they are saying and why.
Recording Process and Delivery
Jamie records in his own professional recording studio and in others across New York City and Philadelphia. He regularly uses all of the connection services, including:
- Source Connect
- Session Link Pro
- And others
Jamie has over 12 years of experience voicing commercials in the US, UK and around the world. He’s performed thousands of projects in a range of styles and for all kinds of products and categories.
Whether being directed live, or working on his own, every recording sounds beautifully clean and clear. He records in a silent and perfectly treated booth, using a range of broadcast quality and industry standard microphones (see studio details for more information). He uses the Universal Audio Apollo Twin interface, into Pro Tools.
Creating Your Perfect Commercial Voiceover
Ad production is collaborative in nature, and delivering the right read is no different. If you have examples of the style you’re looking for, Jamie will match the tone, feel, pace and energy of that read. Or you can craft something completely new and fresh that helps your brand stand out from the crowd.
Recording sessions with Jamie are productive and synergistic, generating multiple options for each read. Jamie particularly enjoys hitting specific timing queues, and can speak very fast when needed, for those occasions where the copy simply has to fit within a small window.
The British Voice
Jamie is an authentic Brit with an unaccented Southern intonation, sometimes referred to as RP. He also regularly voices in Northern English, Scottish and Irish. Many projects require what has been termed the ‘Mid Atlantic’ or ‘TransAtlantic’ accent. This takes elements of the UK and US accents and blends them in a way that is easily understood by both sides. Jamie regularly voices this style. Some projects require a combination of UK with US words (or vice versa). Whatever is needed to complete the project to your satisfaction, Jamie delivers.
