Overview

I am a bilingual native speaker of Afrikaans and have a very neutral English accent. I am also experienced in the British voice over industry, as I spent 8 years living and working in London before moving back to South Africa. I am now based in Centurion, Gauteng, working from my home recording studio.

Suitcase Experience

I have 20 years of professional voice over experience, 8 of which was spent living and working in the UK.

Badge Credentials

I hold a Performing Arts Degree and love stretching my acting muscles in the booth. I also trained at The Actor’s centre and did an Advanced Acting for Radio course in London.

Handshake Companies I have voiced for

My clients range from companies requiring a narrator for their latest corporate video, e-Learning and CD Rom training projects to international broadcasters like the BBC and CNN Africa, voicing audio books and documentaries. I have also done radio commercials, ADR for film, TV continuity and promos for Hallmark Entertainment and Channel 4 UK during the Big Brother time slot.
Below are some testimonials from happy clients.
“Working with Marinda could not have been better. I contacted her as I was having difficulty finding a female South African voice over artist and she was a dream come true! She helped us out with the record, but also put us in touch with others in her network to help out with our other project requirements. The read was spot on, no re-takes needed and the quality was perfect!” Helen Routledge – Head of Design and Production at Totem Learning Ltd – London
“Marinda did voice over work for me on a kiddies mobile application in both afrikaans and english. Her work was concise, well organised, well adjusted for the target audience and the delivery time were impressive.” Carine van Zyl – iOS Contractor – South Africa
“Marinda completed a medical voiceover for me in very quick time, with a great studio and always kept in touch. A fantastic voice artist who is flexible and keen – highly recommended!” Emily Jardine – Project Manager at Matinee Sound & Vision Ltd – United Kingdom
“I came across Marinda when I was looking for a South African woman to read a short story for broadcast on the BBC World Service. I really enjoyed working with Marinda. She was a true professional, turning up on time and fully prepared… she was absolutely superb and the broadcast sounded lovely. She really got to grips with a quite complex story in no time at all and got the hang of performing for radio very quickly. She needed very little direction from myself but the advice I gave her she listened to and acted upon accordingly. I highly recommend her work.” Penny Dale – Producer at BBC Worldwide Service
“ During the course we did together – Radio work / Voice Over – it was immediately apparent that Marinda had experience in this field. She had a good control of her voice, a very professional approach and we were all impressed by her command of Afrikaans. While Marinda is very focused and expects the best of herself, she is also warm, fun and a pleasure to work with in a studio.” Charlotte B – Freelance Performing Artist -UK
