Guy really knows how to make a fantastic voice reel; I have a huge amount of success after going live with the four reels Guy helped me create and have often heard customers saying that it was the voice reel that originally drew them to me. Huge thanks, Guy!

As a newcomer to the world of voiceover, Guy Michaels came very highly recommended to me by a friend and fellow actor, after having spent much time researching and reading about voiceover work and setting up demos and reels. From our initial conversation over the phone to the eventual recording session at his home studio, Guy was friendly, informative and incredibly welcoming. Not in any way condescending, and given the fact that I was just entering voiceover work, this was immensely encouraging. He makes you feel incredibly at ease and relaxed, and knows just the right time to throw in a piece of direction or suggestions. I must also mention, in line with many of the other reviews on here, that as well as receiving whichever eventual reel you choose to record with Guy (which, providing you are able to deliver the goods in terms of your vocal performance, will be of top notch quality), on top of this, the amount of advice and information Guy gives you is absolutely invaluable. Not only do you get a reel of great quality, but knowledge on how to approach finding work, what type of equipment to look for, how to set up a decent recording space, etc. I can totally understand why he is recommended so highly, and like my friend, I shall be recommending him too! Couldn't be happier with my experience with Guy. Oh and if you guys haven't heard of Guy's Voiceover Kickstarter course. Get on it! Free, and absolutely brilliant.

Working with Guy Michaels is an absolute pleasure! You enter in a cosy recording studio where you are warmly welcome with a cup of tea and quickly put at ease. Once you start recording, Guy knows exactly what he does and manages to give you direction always in collaborative spirit. You feel free and creative.

In addition, you get to have a microphone for home recording....I mean...what else?

Natasha Vieira

Guy was fantastic to work with from start to finish. He put me at ease straight away and was a constant source of support. Unlike some other voice reel companies you aren't handed a ready made script but rather guided by Guy to find the right pieces to suit your voice and needs. This gives your reel an induvidual and unique sound and ultimately a more professional reel. Guy is professional and knows the voice industry like the back of his hand. Very reasonably priced for the queality of service you receive.
