Matinée produces thousands of hours of voice-over recordings every year, so we understand the difference a high quality voice over showreel can make. Clients need to be able to picture you straight away as the voice of their next campaign, product or character. Your demo-reel has to demonstrate your ability and range to give the client confidence in you.

We offer two levels of service: Audition and Pro. Our Audition Service is a lower investment and serves as an introduction to voice-over. Our Pro Service gives you a set of professional quality demo-reels in a variety of styles, mastered with music.

Delivers great work, right on time

We’ve used Matinée for several projects, from video editing to translations of marketing materials, and they’re always a great pleasure to work with. Any requests are answered right away. We’ve had tight deadlines, but we’ve never worried as the team at Matinée delivers great work, right on time.

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.

Matinée is a company I can trust

I’ve worked with Matinee for well over 20 years, and continue to go back to them because of trust; a trust in their commitment to fulfilling the needs of my project, and a trust in the quality of their work.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects

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.

I have to mention the quick response of Sally and Nicole to my last minute request. They both understood the urgency of my need, and helped me complete the recording to hit my deadline.
