Bob Chappell has been in South Africa since 1998. You’ll hear his radio voice in two general categories – announcer and character. About his work, he writes: “I think the announcer voice bears great responsibility in an ad. You’ve got to have absolute conviction – yourself, personally – absolute clarity of delivery and genuine warmth. Character’s more the fun side of things. I get quite a lot of British stock character work – the nobs and judges and the like – then the more accent-neutral portrayal of emotion and attitudes. I enjoy good, even forceful direction here – it’s great having a director squeeze exactly what they want out of you.” His most recent work on local radio was for the Safari Now/Stay Now accommodation booking service.
Bob has recently moved into film dubbing work, and also records AV voice-over for educational and motivational projects. As well as on the APM database, you can hear a selection of his voice work on his own AV page at http://www.musicarta.com/Bob_Chappell_AV.html
