Renowned for his movie trailer voiceovers, Pen and Picture was honored to have voiceover legend Hal Douglas provide narration for our novel trailer – All The Talk Is Dead by Michael Ebner.  Recorded between London sound studios and Hal Douglas’ base in USA, author Michael Ebner was even able to attend the recording. “It’s an art form and I’m a huge fan of Hal’s work over the years. It was a real honor to talk with him and have his narration with our book trailer” said the author. Inside Film Magazine reported on the trailer: “With the story being about a wannabe rockstar and wannabe filmmaker – it should come as no surprise that the novel has its own movie style trailer with narration by Hollywood voiceover legend, Hal Douglas.”
The voiceover artist profession is back in the spotlight in film recently with release of Lake Bell’s new movie, In A World. Hal Douglas, Winner of 2011 Don LaFontaine Legacy Award, is also well known for sending himself up for the trailer for Jerry Seinfeld’s documentary, Comedian. This is also memorable for its “In a world” spoofing. More information on Lake Bell’s In A World and the work of Don LaFontaine and the voiceover artist journey can be found in this great article by Horatia Harrod for The Telegraph. Hal Douglas is also the subject of a new documentary titled A Great Voice. More information about this documentary can be found here in this article at Voice Over Times.
