International English voice-over Michael Krass

I am an American voice-over artist based near Amsterdam, specializing in mid-Atlantic or international English – that’s English that’s not too American and not too British, when you want to appeal to a broad audience – and don’t want to offend anybody.

American voice actor–who’s not too American

A premier voice-over artist best known for my authentic, conversational approach, I do voice work for companies like Heineken, Lego, Sage, Phillips and agencies like Ogilvy, Wunderman Thompson and TBWA\NEBOKO.

Professional studio for quick turnaround
I have my own sound-proof studio with professional equipment. I usually deliver within 24 hours. For a live session, you can call in on Zoom, Teams, Skype or whatever. Or you can brief me. I always do a number of takes. And retakes are not an issue – as long as they’re based on delivery or approach. I’m just as happy to come to your studio if that suits the job better.

Michael has a unique talent. A voice that exudes natural authority. A warm and pleasant tone that adds expertise to whatever the subject is.
Michael makes us sound good.

Bas Korsten

Global Chief Creative Officer, Wunderman Thompson

Michael’s approachable and flexible work ethic makes him a pleasure to collaborate with. Alongside his unique voice and friendly personality it’s clear why he is always one of the first talents we will offer to our clients.

How it works

Can’t find any prices on this site?

That’s because each job is different and my fee depends on the type of project. I have a Basic Studio Fee for an hour of recording, regardless of script length.

Once we’re good…

…we can get on with the brief: what tone of voice and style are you looking for? If you have examples – of mine or anyone else’s – that’s great.

Take a seat

I have a fully-equipped professional studio. You can call in on-line and direct me live or let me get to work and receive the audio for review after.

 

What you get

Guide track

If you haven’t started editing your film, I can record a guide track for you, no charge, and then do the final voice-over once your film is picture lock.

Final voice-over

I’ll record up to three takes of the copy. If you haven’t directed me live, and aren’t completely happy, I’ll do a retake, no problem.

Copy editing

Speaking of rewrites, writing copy in English for an international audience can be tough. I can help.

A professional studio to call my own

After years of waiting patiently while my neighbors drilled into their walls, added another wash to the machine or played that boogie-woogie one more time on their piano (practice makes perfect!), I finally had a double-walled, double glazed, vocal booth with a Very Heavy Door built (by Houk van Lier). Now I can record professional audio day or night, whenever I need to. Life is sweet.

In celebration of that booth, here’s is an ode to all my clients and their awesome voice-over scripts—I love you guys. It’s the only corporate film you’ll ever need to see!

Contact me for a voice-over
Send me a few lines of your script and I’ll send you a demo, free of charge.

Broadcast quality audio within 24 hours!

A few of my clients

Michael is a very skilled voice-over, a real pro with an empathetic and trustworthy voice. He’s quick to understand the tone of the written narrative. He also knows how to challenge copy; not to criticize it, but to improve it. The sound of his voice in my head makes copywriting easy.
I hope we’ll keep on working together for many years to come.

Floris Beets

Strategy Director, Borish Film Agency

Michael has a warm and empathetic voice. He’s a great story-teller who knows how to do a voice-over without that selling tone, which makes the message much more likeable.

Dare van Dijk

Chief Creative Officer, TBWANEBOKO Amsterdam

Michael has a warm and sympathetic voice, with added spirit. He is easy to direct, he doesn’t only talk but can listen as well, and he comes across convincingly but not too pushy. A reliable salesman and great storyteller, who can handle longer copy as well. You really want to know what this guy has to say.
