From the desk of Roch
I’m Roch Bordenave. Voice Artist. On the surface, you’d think my business to be a lonely one; rustling about here in my home studio with literally no other warm bodies lurking about. But that’s “literally”. Virtually, there’s a vast world of cool humans I work with on a daily basis. Whether connecting via email, ISDN, phone, text, Skype or Facetime...they’re out there; the professionals I have the fine fortune of working with day in and day out.
I am part of a team. Their team.
Ideas born from the minds of writers and producers; phone conversations about execution and storyboards; live-session-direction ensuring the correct intensity and inflection; production houses acting as liaisons between talent and commercial agents; and of course, the producer’s magical touch, bringing it all together for broadcast.
Friday, 0800 Pacific. An email shows up in my Inbox. It was sent from the iPhone of a copywriter sitting in a meeting in Indy. The email contains copy for a voice over that intros a driver for an INDY car event taking place that evening in St. Petersburg. One of those jumbo-tron things broadcast to the fans at the event. Apparently there was a last-minute change in poll positioning for the race. I voice the segment, DropBox it to the producer in Indy later that morning. That night, under the lights, the driver gets his due and the race begins.
This is my world. And I love this job.
Need a VO? I’m here for ya’. Part of your team.
