France Voice Over is a voice-over and sound communication agency based in Montrabe (Upper Garonne)close to Toulouse, and has customers all over the world. Open for three years now in the Studio Media Group, she discreetly produces the voices that the inhabitants of the Pink City hear in the metro, the car, or even… on the television.
“On several customer profiles. Our strength is that we manage to respond quickly to very specific needs. We always try to deliver their request within 48 hours. And they are surprised at the speed.”
Two main missions
The agency is made up of five members who work on the various requests. “We are two project managers, a project coordinator and two sound engineers”, explains Rado Be Harvel.
And it offers two specific offers: sound communication, that is to say the development of a sound identity for a brand or sign, but also voice-over recording. “On a notebook of more than 500 actors all over the world. We work with them according to our day-to-day needs. The agency has two voice recording studios.
Voices made in Toulouse
Studios which allowed him, among other things, to record certain voices for the city of Toulouse. In particular the voice in Occitan that can be heard in the metro, the Toulouse voice of Waze, several sound creations for Airbus and for shopping centers… But the last big project of the box: it is the recording of several sounds for the show Excellent chefwhen Michel Sarran was still a sworn.
“For Top Chef, we have several recorded voices of Michel Sarran, as the chef is from Toulouse. That is to say, we have several recorded voices of Sarran on our premises. Voices that the show added during assembly.”
And that’s not all, France Voice Over also has a television set on its premises. Thanks to him, they were also able to film some images of Michel Sarran for the show…
Explanation: during episodes Excellent chef, Michel Sarran and the chefs appear in “confessional” mode to deliver their feelings during the stages. Behind them, we usually see a kitchen or a restaurant, a background that can be added directly to the montage, with what is called “a green background”. After a recording of Michel Sarran’s confessional by France Voix Off and the green background, the editing team of Top Chef thus adds a kitchen behind the chef from Toulouse.
… and international voices!
But the agency does not only work in the Pink City. She also has many clients Paris and in the whole world, regardless of the destination. “We have worked with brands in Mexico, Sweden, the United States, the United Kingdom, and even Japan. To pay Japan, for example, we had to translate a video of a box into Japanese. Thanks to our network of actors, we found the person we needed, ”underlines the director of France Voix Off.
It remains to be seen that it will be the next project of this agency, well hidden around Toulouse.
