Our world is getting smaller. Many companies have global offices with international staff and/or clients. As well as artfully mastering several accents, which she can thicken or lighten as per your request, Kim Handysides has crafted a few special “International” accents. Ad agencies targeting these markets seek voiceover artists who sound like they’ve travelled, been educated or worked in various countries and have a sound that is not identifiable with any one place.
Well-travelled herself and living in a metropolitan city that celebrates its European flavor within North America, Kim’s approach to an international sound is flexible – that is, she can make it thick or subtle, yet respectful as is rightfully due to the multi-lingual.
Sample her selection of accented and International commercials, corporate narrations and documentaries.
International accent A (Northern European), B (Equitorial), C (Globe trotter)
