Fiction Media Group, a graphics company that operates out of New York, was looking for a voice-over for Bureau of Trade’s website campaign. They wanted an “aged, strong, raw British voice. Think Mark Strong as the narrator in RockNRolla.”
Actually, I modeled the voice on Ray Whinstone from Sexy Beast, though some think I sounded more like Timothy Spall.
Kudos to Micah and Michael Moskowitz for their innovative vision. I have presently voiced five commercials for them, all cutting edge: The Shibori Pocket Square; The Seiko Watch; Headed Home to You-Know-Who; Deeper into the Wild; The Bag Man. Delighted to be the spokesperson of their company.
Their commercials are daring, ingenious, original.
