___________________________________ A common request from clients in voice over auditions is for talent to “sound like Morgan Freeman“. Another popular set of pipes belongs to Sam Elliot (“Guts. Glory. Ram.“).
But when a client asks you to sound like “Optimus Prime from Transformers“? Well, you do your best. What does “Optimus Prime” sound like? Morgan Freeman with anger management issues.
