Case Study: British Voice Over recording – End Water Poverty

End Water Poverty is campaigning to end the world’s water and sanitation crisis. We were truly shocked to hear that over 780 million people go without safe drinking water every-day and over 40% of the world’s population do not have access to basic sanitation. This combination means that millions of people die needlessly every year.

It was a privilege to be asked to help cast and record an empathetic female voice for this explainer animation.  Access to safe drinking water is a fundamental human right and we hope the small part we played in producing this video has contributed to garnering more support for the campaign.

Meet Victoria, one of the stars in our Project Management teamBritish (UK) voice talent project manager

As a Project Manager at Matinée, I work on a variety of interesting projects throughout the day, and across a wide range of subjects and industries. Every client is important to me, and it’s my responsibility to ensure that each client requirement is met in full. I ensure there is a clear understanding of our production process, and keep everyone updated with progress throughout the life of the project. Effective communication and expectation management is key to this, working with clients, our in-house team of engineers and designers, and with a huge pool of translators, and voice talent from around the world.

At the start of a project, I make sure I have an accurate understanding of the brief, and evaluate the work involved . This enables me to work efficiently with our team of engineers and any external talent used, to bring the project to completion within the agreed time frame and budget. I have a flexible attitude, and good problem solving skills, and I work hard to maintain professional working relationships with our clients, voice artists and translators, as they are all crucial to a successful project completion.

I also work in the recruitment of new UK voice talent, and have developed an exhaustive selection procedure. This involves satisfactory answers to a series of questions, and a comprehensive testing procedure to ensure they have the skills and voice quality necessary to become a trusted supplier. This is a detailed, step by step process; to make sure we maintain a database of professional, experienced and adaptable talent, to deliver consistent quality and 100% customer satisfaction.
