Voice Overs, Voice Acting
My voice has a deep, rich quality suitable for documentary film and audio book narration, while being versatile enough to provide an upbeat read for a kid's commercial or a dark read as a villain.
Quick service. Very responsive to direction.
I enjoy storytelling and working to achieve your goal.
Gosh! My latest gig, a radio spot for the great Tony Sarno blues band known as the Thunderhawks who did a benefit concert in Laconia, NH, for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society on September 22nd. 2012, Tony had this to say on Facebook...

I would also like to thank Iggy Makarevich for doing an excellent voiceover on the radio spot. He’s great to work with, and he’ll do a wonderful job if you need a voiceover artist.
It was a lot of fun and Tony was great and it was for a great cause to boot... hear it right here, with and without the Labatt’s sponsorship tag at the end. Final mixes by Tony Sarno.
And on the gig before that, for a Joseph Ribkoff internal training piece, resulted in this comment (translated from French Canadian) from the end user to my client...
“Oh heavens! This man’s voice is of sublime! Thank you. I am very grateful to be standing if subtracted later.”
