I submitted one of my voiceover adverts into the VOX Awards 2013, run by voiceovers.co.uk and VOX. This event was held on the 20th of April 2013 and I was hoping to for a Voiceover nomination in one of the categories.

About a week before the event, I was notified that my voiceover advert had made it as a finalist of three in the ‘Best Retail Advert’ category.

I attended the event and the awards ceremony and even though I didn’t win, I was honored to be nominated for such a prestigious award.

Hitman Absolution was a great project and was exciting to voice as I got to explore the slightly ‘darker’ side of voiceovers. This in-store radio advert had to have a particular dark, detached sound and I feel I achieved that.  This was also reflected in the production of the final mix, including gunshot sound effects and a clip of the music from the game itself.

Here is a link to the advert. Enjoy! Hitman Absolution
