I had a great morning at The Showreel recording an agent demo with Mike. The guys really know their stuff and the session was a great success. They are very good at providing you with research materials and advice before the session, but it is important to go there with as much preparation done as possible. Similarly, their information regarding agencies and the wider world of voice-over work is extensive and has been really useful for me at this early stage of my v/o career.
I was really happy with the quality of recordings that were produced and the session was relaxed and fun. I don't know a great deal about the equipment used in such recordings, but from what I could tell the studio was extremely well-equipped. Mike certainly knew his stuff and was a great source of help and advice both before, during and after the session.
I would thoroughly recommend using these guys for v/o reels and I will certainly be looking to work with them again in future. I feel it is important to reiterate the importance of preparation on your part beforehand: the guys can only do so much and the more work you are able to do in finding suitable scripts etc, the more you will end up getting out of your session.
