I asked some Clients, Colleagues and Actors to say a word about what it was like to work with me as their Voice/Performance Director and these are their bribe-free comments about their experience having me on the team.
"We've had the pleasure of working with Thomas on a number of projects including, but not limited to, Baldur's Gate 3 & Jagged Alliance 3. He has always brought a keen enthusiasm and confidence with him along with his talent as a Voice Director. His own experience as an Actor for Video Games himself lends him a unique perspective in bringing the best out of other performers. A talented individual, a wonderful sense of humour and a delightful human overall."
"Working with Tom is always a highlight going into a session. He brings fun, a wealth of experience and patience to each session and really brings out the best out of not just myself but the myriad of actors he has worked with over many years. I love working with him and can't wait until we get to dance around the microphones again together."
Neil has won 'Best Supporting Performer' at the Golden Joystick Awards & has been nominated for 'Best Performance' at The Game Awards for his work on the character, Astarion, in Baldur's Gate 3.
A role that I was involved with as one of his Voice Directors.
"Tom is an outstanding Voice Director who brings a new level of excellence to our video game projects. His clear vision for the performances adds depth and authenticity to the characters, setting the tone for the entire narrative. Beyond his directorial skills, Tom's leadership throughout the process ensures that every step is smooth and focused, resulting in a cohesive final product.
Remarkable is also Tom's rapport with both the actors and clients. His ability to establish a collaborative and supportive atmosphere during recording sessions allows actors to fully inhabit their roles, delivering performances that resonate with emotion and realism. This connection extends to our clients, who feel engaged and confident in Tom's direction every step of the way.
AND if you like an unexpected twist, Tom can also showcase his own talents as an accomplished Voice Actor with a brief cameo!"
"I've had the pleasure of being directed by Tom across several games and each and every time, it's been an absolute ball! Tom is not only incredibly fun to work with, but his direction hits the nail on the head every time; creating ample opportunity for an atmosphere of collaboration between director and actor, which I think is paramount to any creative endeavour. And best of all, we always have a laugh! I'd highly recommend Tom as both a Director (and a human being!)."
"Working with Thomas during the recording sessions for Ravenbound was an absolute highlight of the project. The way that he directed sessions and the performers allowed me to focus on listening and we are so happy with the results. Thomas directed the performers with care and a creativity that allowed them to feel free to experiment and I know that the game is better because of that.
I honestly couldn't recommend working with Thomas enough for your next VO session."
"I worked with Tom on Baldur's Gate 3 and not only was he always on time (which is very important) but he was fun, concise, clear and a brilliantly energising Director during our many sessions together."
"I loved working with Thomas in our recording sessions, he understood our game straight away, worked with the actor to deliver the best performance possible and showed off a keen ear for exactly what we wanted. Looking forward to working with them again!"
