I won a voice over award a couple of weeks ago. It was such a huge surprise to be nominated for not one, but two awards. To have come away with a win well….wow! I write this blog as a lot of you have asked “what was it for?” “do I know it?” or “can I hear it?”. Well I found it, scroll down to see the video!
One of the nominations was for ‘Best Corporate/Explainer overall performance’ the other for “Best Performance in a Game.’ The game was for my work on War Craft ( I didn’t win that) and the corporate/explainer was for my work for Sanofi (Atopic Dermatitis). To be absolutely honest I remember doing the work on both projects. I had an amazing time, very different but satisfying nonetheless. But one thing you learn in this business is ‘once it’s in the can, it’s no longer yours’. So in that fashion it was out of sight out of mind. Once I discovered I had been nominated I spent a lot of time trying to remember whether I felt my performances were up to scratch. Wracking my brain to work out whether I was worthy. Yep, self doubt rearing it’s ugly head again. Anyway, had to stop with that as it’s a pointless endeavour, this kind of thing is subjective. Go with it and be grateful, I said to myself.
What an evening! To be surrounded by the level of talent form the voice over world was both daunting and exhilarating!
When my name was called out as the winner of the “Best Corporate Explainer”, I was in shook. All the winners had their work shown after collecting the award, before their speech. That was the first time I’d seen the finished ‘product’. It’s a piece about Atopic Dermatitis, it still feels good to be a part of spreading the word on this condition. I’d never heard of it before. I must admit I’m proud. I’m fairly new to the whole voice over world thanks to my brilliant agents Damn Good Voices. I really enjoy them. Here’s to many more voice over gigs…
