"BELIEVABLE - From announcing to voice acting - 38 yr Pro!"
Bob Harper

When I FIRST started doing my own custom commercials in the 80's in Pennsylvania,
my unique work caught on rather fast and business took off! Problem was however, my normal announcing voice was appearing constantly across the 15 radio stations.
At that point, I started experimenting with different announcing styles, dialects and then characters,
so the ads wouldn't be sounding as similar. THAT's when I really learned the fine art of voice acting!

After 38 years and literally 8,000+ ads, multimedia projects and so on, I've developed and honed a rather wide
range of voice styles and characters that I can call upon in a heartbeat. However, there's one problem with having
so many characters at your disposal. You see, they often want to follow me out for a night on the town. That's when the fun starts. '-)

 Besonderheiten

- In addition to voice work, I can also fully produce ads and am quite good at multi-track sound design.
- I also do print work, online videos and television ads,- which includes talking facial animation from still imagery.
- I used to write and produce a number of musical jingles back in the day and although I'm not currently equipped for Jingle Production,
I can indeed pen a catchy "hook" and melody and make the arrangements for an outside studio with pro musicians and singers to record it.
In addition, I or my characters can sing well enough to carry a tune in ads or other productions. '-)
