Narration Demo Reviewer
Casting Director Jerrilee Geist has been working with Pro Audio Voices since 2015, initially as an editor and narrator. She has worked in theatre for nearly 18 years, having trained at the Guildford School of Acting and continuing on to work as a voiceover artist. Titles that she has recently narrated include The Life and Times of Mr. Hyde, Excursion to Mars, The World Codex: Special Edition, and The Last Incarnation (the latter two not yet released). Jerrilee has also toured internationally with Chaucer Theatre.
Her current role as Casting Director is primarily to find excellent voices that suit each of the books that Pro Audio Voices produces. We are often seeking voices with a specific accent or that can handle small segments of some foreign language. She also works with voiceover artists who may be just starting out or who are looking for more audiobook work and want to improve their narration skills. Jerrilee is passionate about bringing a new generation of great storytellers into the growing world!
