"Thanks for a superb job on our feature film script Restrainer. The script polish service was absolutely the best choice we could've made. We were totally blown away of the quality we received back to us in just two weeks. We highly recommend this service! Big thanks again from Fansu Njie & Filipp Korshunov"
Shannon really enjoyed the class. She couldn't stop reading the scripts outloud, over and over, on the way home. Seriously!
Your show was really great last night. It was a treat to finally "see you in action" and I love the idea of combined media appreciation. That supports everyone in an extra way. It would be great if you could do regular showcases like that with different artists each time. Good for you for creating a venue to do what you love.
Everything is beautiful, I have a strong video. Thank you!
Best, Tony Davis Conductor
I am so thankful that I got the chance to work with you last week. I'm really happy with my "tweaked" demo. After you sent it to Portia, she called me in for a meeting and has decided to take me on. Thanks so much for your support, I appreciate it. You are a true talent and a pleasure to be around. Hope we get many more opportunities to work together!
Having pursued a career as a performer in theatre, film and television for the past 25 years, I was pleasantly surprised when an opportunity for voiceover representation presented itself through my commercial agency. Hoping to capitalize on this opportunity, I immediately sought advice from the agent on the best way to make myself more competitive as a voiceover performer. I was referred to the ongoing “V/O and wine” workout group facilitated by Chris Allport through his company Allport Productions. It didn’t take long to realize that I had found a one-stop solution to my voiceover needs.
Rather than make me start from scratch with an endless series of expensive classes, Chris recognized and respected the work I had already done as a performer and immediately offered me a set of tools that would help me transition these skills into the booth. He got me on the mike immediately in real audition scenarios and offered constructive feedback in areas I needed to improve to be more competitive in this demanding market. I also benefited greatly by watching Chris work with other actors due to his extensive experience as voiceover director, engineer and producer. It didn’t take long to realize that Chris understands every aspect of this business from concept to final edit. He is an accomplished artist and creative talent who can truly deliver what he promises.
Having worked with Chris for the past six months, it seemed logical that he would be the best person to produce my first demo reel. Together, we had discovered a branding style that served me as a performer, and yet Chris still found ways to push the envelope and get me working outside of the box to expand my marketability. Just like a good trainer will push an athlete to perform at a higher level, Chris challenges all of his clients to strive for a higher level of performance every time they step up to the mike. Chris absolutely embraces the spirit of mentorship and willingly shares his 30 plus years of industry experience with any performer who is seriously committed to improving his or her craft.
I feel very fortunate to have met Chris so early in my voiceover career. In addition to being recognized as a top voiceover actor, teacher and director, Chris is also establishing a great reputation as a consultant in many other aspects of the entertainment industry. I look forward to utilizing his talents in many of these areas so that I might develop a congruent and synergistic approach to my pursuit of a performance career in Los Angeles. For all of these reasons and many more, I highly recommend Chris Allport and the many professional services he provides through his company, Allport Productions.
