Great tips in here from +Gary Terzza 
 
How do you read a soft sell voice over?

Some people mistakenly believe that these sorts of reads are the easiest to do. But I beg to differ.

Soft sell commercials are difficult to do

I say that because they have an energy about them, but this is a more restrained power. Trying to make soft sell convincing and believable is the tricky part. 

Do you find this sort of voice over problematic, or does the slow, warm tone come naturally to you?

Glow in the dark… HIGHWAYS. What!? 
In place of streetlights, light-absorbing, glow-in-the-dark markings are illuminating the roads for night riders on a 500 meter strip in the Netherlands. Reporters say rolling down at night feels like driving in a fairytale — but these smart highways are real and hoping to pave the way for the new roads of the future. Where else are our smart cars supposed to drive?

Voice Over Artist
Introduction
Richard Heathcote is a voice over artist in the UK, providing audio for radio and TV adverts, web based audio commercials, on-hold and IVR for phone systems, corporate video narration and everything else in between. He has gained a healthy list of clients from all over the globe, including large nationals & multinationals, as well as bluechip corporations. The likes of GSMA, AstraZeneca, HSBC, BMW, Cisco and many more can all be named as clients.

I'm a voice over artist based in the Midlands, but producing material for anyone anywhere in the world. I'm good like that.

No project is too big or too small. From a short 30second clip for a website, through to a big TV documentary or animated feature film. I'm your man.
Have been a professional voice artist for around 3 years now, and loved every minute of it. Have lots of experience in all aspects of voice work, so would love to hear from you if you have a voice need.
