Check out my lovely new website: www.Laura-Bannister.com ABOUT ME: I returned to the US in 2015 after a year of living in Egypt, and am excited to be back in Seattle and producing audiobooks. My degree is in theatre, and I have seven years of experience of acting professionally for a touring theatre company in Washington. I have loved reading since I was a child, acting since I was a teenager, and am delighted to be narrating audiobooks. Before I began narrating professionally, I volunteered at the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library, in their audiobook and radio departments. I am committed to excellence and attentive to detail. MY STUDIO: I have a high quality home studio -- a double-wall vocal booth with interior acoustic treatment, an AKG c414 XLII microphone, Babyface Pro audio interface, and a macbook pro computer. My DAW is Reaper, and I punch and roll record. I also have connections with local sound engineers and recording studios. RATE: My rate is $150-200 Per Finished Hour. I am open to doing certain Royalty Share projects, as long as a stipend is included to cover the cost of audio editing. Please contact me with any questions you have. PLEASE NOTE: I've chosen not to record books with explicit sexual material. This isn't meant as a judgement, rather a personal choice.
