Behind the scenes: Phil Spencer recording the Rated People voiceover

It can be hard to find a good voiceover artist, the truth is you don’t always know what you’re getting. Thankfully, Phil Spencer was great – a 5 star voiceover artist. You can hear a sneak preview of Phil’s voiceover, which will feature on our TV ad from the 7th January 2012, in this video.

Phil did a great job, all eyes were on him: our TV ad director, Matteo Pizzarello and CMO, Tariq Dag Khan, knew exactly what they wanted, but Phil – fuelled with Rated tea – did a fantastic job.

It took just over an hour to record the voiceover, and over 20 takes to get it right – Phil was very patient.

TV commercial director, Matteo Pizzarello; Phil Spencer, property expert, TV presenter and voiceover connoisseur; and Rated People’s CMO, Tariq Dag Khan.

Our sound guy, Seb, looks just like Michael Cera from Super Bad, don’t you think? It was his job to smooth out any breathing and adjust the sound levels, while fitting the whole thing to the Rated People jingle.

And Emmeline and I couldn’t miss a photo opp with Phil Spencer!
