It is always a pleasure working with the Bourne Consultancy. They have a great understanding of a brands requirements and really know their clients well. Making all conversations about our talent straightforward, as clear as possible and with a quick turnaround.
As well as saving us a huge amount of time wading through voice reels, The Bourne Consultancy understood the brief and gave us a great choice of voices - some from places I wouldn't normally try. Even better, they pointed us to the best bits of the reels. Really important that. When you're pressed for time, you often discount VO artists because the first 10 seconds of the reel isn't right.
I'd like to use them more, please.
The Bourne Consultancy delivered a perfect casting and at short notice too!
I have worked with The Bourne Consultancy for many years, and have always seen Mels as a brilliantly motivated person. Able to make any deal happen, at the right price, with the right person. From her days at Rabbit Vocal Management to now, she has always been a go-to person for a creative, straightforward solution to any brief. She's clearly well connected with talent agents, and is the kind of character that has the relationships, and manner, to get a straight answer quickly.
In short, she's a joy to work with.
The brief for our 3 Eurostar films was impossible and while sitting with the Creatives I literally had no idea where to start.
Having approached The Bourne Consultancy, they completely understood what we were looking for and the voice suggestions kept on flowing.
She searched far and wide for the voices and kept coming up with amazing and innovative ideas.
This is a woman who knows the voice and talent world incredibly well!
There was no stone left unturned and we ended up with 3 amazing voices that really complimented our fantastic films.
