Marcela Saiffe

Born in Mexico, Now Living in the UK.
I started recording for the industry since my childhood and I developed both my passion and my talent, learning everything I could from Old School proffesionals and modern voice coaches.
I have worked extensively on the Advertising industry, also as a creative and producer, so I can talk the talk and understand the needs for almost every text, but still I'm used to follow direction for any particular purpose.
My voice is very versatile, and I developed my ear in order to imitate for dubbing, or creating a character using different voice techniques, tones, use of air, etc,
When it comes to telephony systems, I developed a style that helps the flow by being agile, and not intending to sound slow or sexy, since it can waste a lot of time for IVR users. Instead, I use a special tone that helps the users memorize their options, and a speed that is just spot on to communicate without being boring or unclear.

My spanish can sound as regional or as neutral as you direct, but I'm a specialist in the so called "Latinamerican Neutral" accent.

My english still has a tad of a foreign accent, but I'm training daily to improve my british accent and cadence. I'm good at american english cadence, yet I still consider to have a foreign accent. Something that perhaps can suit your purposes, but to be honest, if you need plain, authentic American or British accent, I'm still not there. As a professional, I prefer to be transparent about it.

 Ausbildung

I took several voice over courses, some in local schools, some with international voice coaches.
I keep updated with seminars when they come up, and I train daily for at least 15 minutes in all the vocal techniques I have learned.
My voice can sound as youthful or as aged as needed be.

 Erfahrung

Probably too many brands to list here most of them Mexican and regional, but let's mention a few of the global:
Pepsico, Coca-Cola (on different years and for different markets)
LÓreal, Procter & Gamble.

I dubbed for a dozen movies after I moved to Mexico City and waited for the dubbign mafias to open a door, and Could have stayed and do more, but then it came the time to switch countries.
I had several Radio Shows, Including local versions of the Coca Cola World Chart Show.
Have been off-voice for a few TV shows.

 Besonderheiten

I love creating characters voices, imitating when needed, and experimenting pursuing new sounds.
As I wrote above, I developed a style for telephone systems that has been praised by my customers and their customers.
I can do post, but it depends on the customer deadlines and my personal life schedule.
