By using a professional voiceover artist you are getting experience and expertise.  Voiceover artists are interpreters – taking a script and knowing the correct pace to use – the right inflections and which words need to be emphasised.

They know the “sell” words (if it’s a commercial) and how to add colour and meaning to the text they’re reading.

What this gives you the client is a professionally crafted, natural piece of communication, delivered in the best way to achieve your desired goals.


It’s a simple process:  Everything can be done via the Internet for communication and sending of your finished audio files.

What can Al Columbus do for your business?

Al has over 30 years experience in the New Zealand Media Industry. In that time he has had 7 nominations in the NZ Radio Awards, 4 of which he won.

He brings to his Voiceover Clients a comprehensive appreciation and knowledge of the creative process, and wealth of advertising industry insight.


Over a long career in radio I’ve worked with many voices. I’ve been working with Al Columbus for almost 17 years and have found him to be probably the most professional, co-operative – and in-demand – voice I’ve worked with. The greatest pleasure of working with Al is that he inevitably knows when he’s done it wrong – and when he’s done it right – and he responds perfectly to direction. In a world of egos, that’s a rare and beautiful thing.

While Creative Director at MediaWorks Radio Taupo I worked closely with quite a few voice talents within our industry, I have to say that Alan Columbus is an incredibly talented voice artist who I have utilised on many of my client’s adverts for Radio play in Taupo and for one of my National clients. Alan is very approachable and easy to work with, nothing is too much of a problem and I love getting his voice work back as it’s always to time and very easy to listen too. I find that Alan’s voice stands out from other voiced commercials on air, his voice is warm and diction is accurate. I would recommend Alan for voice work and will continue to use his services for many years to come.
