WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I wanted a story recording that my elementary school students could listen to and imitate in order to improve their own oral reading, and what Mr. Roberts delivered was perfect. He has a story-reading voice that is gentle and yet full of expression, and I think my students will enjoy listening to it.
Derek did a great job. He went the extra mile. I highly recommend him for your voiceover gigs. I will also order more from him.
Derek, you nailed it!
Wow this is an amazing voice over! Derek really animated the story and made it come to life! He nailed the expressions and intonations while setting the mood for the script very well. He was prompt and professional and provided me with several versions and he received feedback very well. A pleasure to work with! Thank you!
