aboutus

As owner and Sound Designer at Voodoo Sound, Darren "Robbo" Robertson has been creating professional, high quality audio for TV, Radio and the Web for over 20 years.

 

Prior to that, he spent 15 years working for some of Australia’s largest Advertising Agencies, Media outlets and production houses as both a freelancer and full-time employee.

Whether it be Radio Imaging, TV or Radio Advertising, Online Content, Audiobooks, Podcasts, TV and Animation Series, Short Film or Documentary, Robbo's experience guarantees a great job, every time.

The Studio

Like it or not, COVID has changed life in the studio, possibly forever. 

 

To that end, I have created a "Virtual Studio" that is just as interactive as sitting on the couch at the back of the room. 

Prior to your session, you'll get a password protected link that gives you complete audio access to the studio at any time during your booking from anywhere you can get an internet signal.

 

You (or whomever you give your access code to) can sit in on a voice session while they're at the beach, check on progress from the local cafe, request changes or discuss options on the bus ride home, or just keep an ear on what's going on from where ever they are. And at the end of it all, you can listen live to the mix as it is happening, saving the backwards and forwards, and time-costly process of revisions.

 

PLUS, we can connect with any Voice Artist anywhere on the planet. So suddenly your options when it comes to casting the perfect actor for the part, just became endless. And because we're Source Connect certified, you can rest assured there'll be none of those nasty "sorry we're just having some trouble connecting" moments!!

 

Of course, you are always welcome to attend any session in person if you'd prefer.

Darren was great to work with- would highly recommend. We were on a really tight deadline turning around a mix of 26 interstitials on 'Alphabreaks', and he put everything in to the project and the outcome was fantastic. Thanks Darren!

Frequently asked questions

How Much Does It Cost?


Overall you should expect that our services will cost you substattially LESS than many other services with similar facilities and experience! This is because our business model was bult to save on the expensive overheads other facilities are forced to add into the pricing of their service. You're not paying for the Coffee Machine you never use, the Sushi lunches the guys in the booking before you enjoyed, or the huge inner city rents and associated costs with a buisness based in the heart of a large city. What you are STILL getting however is a business with more than 30 years experience in the audio industry, and a studio that's been prupose built to provide you all the same access and the level of quality you expect for your project. The EXACT price for your audio depends on a number of factors. The type of work involved, and any "extras" you ay need us to provide such as Voice Over, Music and scripting etc. The easiest way to get a firm price is to get in touch with us and fill us in on your needs. You can do this any number of ways. By email: robbo (at) voodoosound (dot) com (dot) au By Booking a FREE zoom chat to discuss your project. Or call us +61 417 267 682

I don't live/work in Sydney. Can I still work with you guys?


Yes! We love working remotely, and we like to think we're pretty good at it - in fact, we work that way most days, because thats the way we have designed our business. Not only can you brief in work and check on progress from where ever you are, but with the simple opening of a web browser, you can direct the voice over session, make decisions on sound design and music edit, and have a say on the final mix all live on your laptop from where ever you can get an internet connection. Oh and if its a video spot, we can also stream the pictures in sync with your audio, so you get the full picture... To find out more, get in touch with us. You can do this any number of ways.

What types of audio work do you provide?


At Voodoo Sound, we're kind of the all - rounders of the Audio Post Production industry. I have spent many years Freelancing and prior to that in full time employment with some of the countries biggest Media Outlets, Production Houses and Post Production Facilities. In that time, there's not a lot I haven't done. From TV and Radio Advertising and Promos, Radio Imaging, Online Content (including Audiobooks & Podcasts), as well as training and instructional videos, TV and Animation Series, Short Films and Documentaries. You name it, I've done it at some stage. To put your mind at ease that I'm up to the job, why not book a free "Get To Know You" Zoom call.

Can you provide the music?


The short answer is YES! The long answer is, we have access to AMCOS/APRA and non AMCOS music and will organise both a quote and the final licensing for you without you having to sign a form. On top of that we have access to composers who will create music to your brief.




We need a Voice Over Artist, can you help?


Absolutley. Casting voices has been a part of what I do for some 20 years. I have secured the right talent for jobas for clients as diverce as KFC and Hilton Hotels to Virgin Credit Cards and the ticketing campaign for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Simply send me your script/s and I can either provide you with a few names and their demos, or take care of the whole process from the initial casting all the way trough to booking the talent. Just getin in touch and let us know what you need. By email: robbo (at) voodoosound (dot) com (dot) au By Booking a FREE zoom chat to discuss your project. Or call us +61 417 267 682
