No matter where you're at in your Voice-over career I can help you add believability, repeatability and sonic sparkle to your next demo. Having worked across every aspect of voice over from Advertising to Narration and Imaging, I'm well-placed to help you no matter what type of work you're looking for/
If you're an established Voice Actor, I can help you get a better-sounding demo! One that not only reflects the styles your clients know and love you for but also gives you a chance to showcase the hidden talents that you just never seem to get booked for.
If you're new to the industry, or just trying to break in, I can help you create a demo that not only gives you credibility but is also repeatable. There is no point spending hours upon hours in a studio crafting a 60-second demo that sounds INCREDIBLE if you can't repeat those performances with ease when you're in a real session. I can work with you to craft a demo that not only sounds great but also does not make promises you're not up to keeping just yet.

There is a Myriad of Voice Demo Production Services out there. Why use me?
Well for starters, the very first step in the process is for ME to listen to YOU! Let's start with a chat about your voice, where you're at in your career, and the work you'd like to get from your new demo.
Then, I will use my 35 years of experience gained from working with some of the biggest Advertising Agencies and Media Outlets here in Australia and around the globe to craft scripts that will let you deliver reads that people will believe and HIRE!
I will personally guide you through every step, and at each stage, you will have a chance to give feedback and review where we're at.
It's a proven process that's worked for many satisfied (and now hard-working) clients. Why not book a free "Get to know you" session to see if it's right for you?
Of course, every Demo is different, but the PROCESS remains the same. It is the same one I have used for clients such as Ian "Lofty" Fulton, Colin Day, Matt Cowlrick, Andrew Peters and many more. It's proven, it's thorough and the results (just check out those guys' resumes) speak for themselves...
1. Once you have booked your Demo, we will arrange a time for a 1-hour chat. During this time I will get to know you, your voice, your strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly, we will chat about who will be listening to this demo, and what you want from them once they have. I will also get you to provide me with some of your recent work that you would like me to use as a basis for the scrits that come next.
2. Now... the scripts. I will write 6 to 10 scripts (depending on what we have discussed previously) that suit both the style, delivery and format of the work you are chasing.
3. Back onto ZOOM for a 30-minute call to go over the scripts, and discuss styles, recording techniques and any changes.
4. Time to record. We have 2 hours set aside for this most important part of the process, so no need to rush. We will work together to come up with the best possible reads for each script. If you can't be here in person we can use Source Connect or whatever remote application you have. We can discuss how this works in more detail at the time.
5. Time for some studio magic. Your voiceovers will be processed mixed and mastered to the same quality standards that I use every day for my agency and media clients. I will then cherry-pick the best bits of each spot to produce your final demo.
6. Back to you to take a listen and make any changes you think necessary (up to one hour of studio time), We can catch up and discuss these if you would like a second opinion, or you can just email me your changes which I will implement. We can also re-record any pickups you may like in that time as well.
7. Once your changes are made I will create a final mix of your demo plus all the separate tracks and deliver to you the following...
The Demo final mix in both .wav and .mp3 formats.
Each individual spot in mp3 format for you to use on your website or socials as you see fit.

Robbo and I first worked together more than 30 years ago, when I was just starting out in the world of freelance voice-over.
He is brilliant , so when it was time to update my imaging demos there was really only one choice in where to go
Thurston Day VO - UK
...an unparalleled joy. Of course, he’s got great production chops – you knew that – but he’s quick, super friendly and easy to deal with. He just gets it and gets on with it. So when you want your demo spots to have that proper network “oh-my-gosh-they-booked-him-for-THAT” feel, then Robbo is your man.”

When I needed a new Demo there was really only one place I was ever going to go... Voodoo Sound. Robbo didn't disappoint, and my demo now reflects the work I'm doing TODAY, not 15 years ago!

What is a voice over demo, and why should I have one?"Think of it as your audio version of a resume. A good Demo will showcase you doing your very best voice work. Ideally it will be professionally directed, recorded and produced, and will consist of various short clips that feature you doing the various styles of vocal delivery that you would like to showcase. You'll need a demo to show off your skills, sound, vocal range and style in order for an agent or potential client to hear what you can do with your voice. Most importantly, it should be current and ear catching to ensure you stand out from the crowd. To get an idea of how your demo might sound, get in touch...

Do I need to be in Australia /Sydney to do my Demo with you?In short NO! Absolutely not. Voodoo Sound works with voice talent and clients from all over the world. If you have a broadcast quality home studio, you can record from there and we will connect over Source Connect, iPdTL Skype, Zoom, Phone, you name it. Alternatively, you can book a couple of hours at a studio near you and we will patch into them, leaving you free to worry about the reads. Either way, it will sound great.
