RECENT TESTIMONIALS ONCE GONE by Blake Pierce "Thx so much! You are a true artist and I am honored to be working with you!" Noah Lukeman, Lukeman Literary Management, New York. Representing author Blake Pierce. "Elaine is a very talented voice over artist with a very soothing and pleasurable voice to listen to. She also does an amazing job with character voices aside from her main narration voice. Listening to her audio you can tell she puts her heart into her work. Now having narrated over 6 books for us, we can confidently say she is always delivering work on schedule and she's also a very accurate reader that makes little to no mistakes on lengthy books that are over 10 hours in length." Ali Negahdary, Producer, ARN Publications, Los Angeles. “I was searching for a narrator for one of my novels and when I listened to a demo by Elaine, I knew instantly that she was perfect. I wasn't wrong! Elaine finished the project ahead of the deadline and when I listened to the finished narration, I was blown away. One could tell immediately that she had real empathy for the characters in my book – her tone was perfect in every way in narrative and dialogue. Elaine Wise is extremely professional, yet also takes a personal approach and I hope to work with her again very soon on my future projects.” H E Joyce, Author “Torment”. “When I solicited auditions from numerous narrators for my "Be James Bond" audiobook, Elaine responded promptly with a marvellous audition. She even provided two distinct versions of it in different vocal styles so that I could choose which style I preferred! Elaine was a treat throughout the rest of the process. She was friendly, courteous, and professional. She delivered the completed audiobook well before our agreed-upon deadline, and it was superb. There was no editing needed. ACX approved it upon our first submission of it. I would use her again in a heartbeat!" Michael Bush, Author, Massachusetts, USA “Be James Bond by Miss Moneypenny” "Working with Elaine on this series of animated films for the British Council was an absolute pleasure. Not only was she extremely fast and reliable with getting takes to us, she was great at taking on board feedback and direction. We wouldn't hesitate in working with Elaine again, and look forward to that next opportunity." Aaron Wood, Animator, SLURPY STUDIOS, London. “Working with Elaine was an absolute pleasure. We were searching for something very specific for our voiceover and out of the many auditions we received, only Elaine managed to deliver. I look forward to working with her again in the future.” Leo Earle, Animator, LEON, London.
