Professional Voice Over Specialist
Welcome to my website and let me introduce myself to you first. My name is Jake Barrel and I’m a professional voice over specialist. I was born in the USA (LA, California), but I further moved to Croatia with my family and now I feel at home here. My experience of working in the niche currently constitutes 12 years. This makes it possible for me to state that a voice over isn’t just about reading scripts or texts only. This is about making people believe in what they hear and watch, without distracting from the major message of the movie, cartoon, show or any other performance.
Professional voice over is a kind of a balance that can be achieved through the experience, knowledge and serious attitude to your job. A narrator should personally feel and soak everything he/she is talking about. This is the surefire way to reach great result. I have a rich portfolio of successfully completed projects and I can tell for sure that this is my real calling. I’m always open for fruitful cooperation!
