    English Canadian Voice Over for Man In Your Head Productions

    Case Study

    Man in your head Productions were producing a promo for OceanaGold, about modern underground mining at the Fraser’s Underground Mine in New Zealand. They needed help from a voice-over agency to cast a suitable Canadian voice-over narrator.

    Todd S was selected from the pool of voice talent that we recommended.  Then we recorded the script wild, and delivered it as a .wav file ready for the production company to complete the video edit.

    Origins of the Canadian language and accent

    Canada stretches from the United States to the Arctic Circle. Most people in Canada speak English or French, or both. The official language of Canada is English, apart from Quebec, where it is French and New Brunswick where both languages are official.

    Canada’s first inhabitants were native people, mainly Eskimos, but in 1497 John Cabot, who was an Italian in the service to England’s Henry VII, discovered Canada. The French then came in the 1500s and various battles were fought between them and the English for certain territories. Finally, in the 17th century, the English gained control. Up to this time the majority of the settlers were French speakers, but after Britain gained control, thousands of Britons came to Canada to settle. The biggest impact on language however, was the American Revolution. After the Americans beat the English and gained independence, there were people who wanted to remain English and the Canadians invited them to settle in Canada and gave them land. This meant that there was now a mixture of British English speakers and American speakers in Canada. Immigrants also came from Ireland and the Ukraine.

    Written Canadian is British, but with an American influence. Some spelling is British, like colour with a ‘u’ and some words are spelt in American English, like analyse with a ‘z’ and not an ‘s.’ There are also words in the Canadian vocabulary which are not English, French or American and which have evolved frm their own language.

    Canadians sound more American than English and this may be because of the proximity to the United States, but the language has definitely been influenced by English, which can be heard in their pronunciation of some consonants and vowel shifts. A famous Canadian singer is Michael Buble, hear him talking in a Canadian accent here. It is a good example of someone speaking English with a Canadian accent.

    Fantastic to work with

    The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

    The Big Word

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
