...body language

For a girl who grew up on films like Footloose, Flash Dance, Dirty Dancing, Lambada and Saturday Night Fever, voicing a radio campaign this week for the Dance School of Scotland was kinda cool...

...mini adventures!


"Because of our routines,
we forget that life is an ongoing adventure."

- Maya Angelou

This photo was taken on a mini adventure during the weekend, at two beautiful places to visit on Scotland's east coast. You can view the whole storyboard over at sister blog Postcards From The Coast - for tips on places to visit, eat and sleep - and
on a great way to travel! ;)

...A Sneak Peek - In The Studio

Join me @ Facebook for more studio shots & regular updates

In the world of voice-over artists there are of course a few key 'tools of the trade'. It's fair to say that while our voice is the most precious asset, one's studio comes a pretty close second! With this in mind, I've just launched a brand new page - In The Studio - which features lots of information about where and how I work. You can also visit via my home page @ www.vickywatt.co.uk Oh - and you can go to my updated Contact page to find me at Voiceovers.Co.Uk, Facebook and LinkedIn.

...perseverance

"When I was about 10 years old and dreaming of going to Africa, living with animals, and writing books about them, everyone laughed at me. World War II was raging across Europe. My family had no money and couldn't even afford a bicycle for me. Africa was far away and full of dangerous animals, and, most damning of all, I was a mere girl. Only boys could expect to do those kinds of things. But my mother said, 'If you really want something and you work hard and you take advantage of opportunities — and you never, ever give up — you will find a way.' The opportunity was a letter from a friend inviting me to Kenya. The hard work was waitressing at a hotel to earn money for the trip — and spending hours reading books about Africa and animals, so I was ready when Dr. Louis Leakey offered me the opportunity to study chimpanzees."

"The most important thing is to actually think about what you do. To become aware and actually think about the effect of what you do on the environment and on society. That's key, and that underlies everything else".

...the season

Autumn is a second spring
when every leaf is a flower.
- Albert Camus

Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
- Emily Bronte

Following a brief autumn break - or 'fall' as some say - in the highland countryside, I'm back to work at my studio by the sea...

I'm available daily to discuss voice over bookings - TV, radio, narration, in-stores, e-learning, corporate. If you'd prefer a face-to-face session at your chosen studio in the city please just let me know.

Meanwhile, Happy Autumn - hope you get a chance to head out and kick up some leaves!!
