ATC Treasure Hunt-1

Voice over artist wanted

Name: Katie Ashton Email:


Comment: Hi I hope you don’t mind me bothering you for a rather random request. I work for Newgate, a local clock and watch company based in Oswestry. We have made some promotional videos and need a voice over artist for approximately a days’ worth of recording ASAP. We would ideally like someone local so I thought I’d start with local theatre companies. We are after a female voice, similar to actress Naomie Harris:

If you know of anyone in your company who may be suitable and interested, we would love to hear from them!

Many thanks
