What in the world are people saying about Kurt Kelly today, [see below].

I wanted to thank you for your fantastic work on the Djesus trailer - I'm the lucky director you blessed by nailing the voiceover on your first pass. Sorry I didn't get to talk to you at all in the process - the whole project started and finished in about 28 hours - a mad, delirious scramble. 

Thank you - you really made the piece come alive. I hope we get to do it again sometime soon.

Rhys, Director

Saturday Night Live - NBC Universal

According to Logan Nocklaus of Rolling Stone, "The movie trailer for Djesus Uncrossed was stunning, in the best way possible. This upcoming blockbuster is "the ultimate revenge fantasy"..."

Kurt Kelly is the Signature Voice for Sony- PIX Television Network, and is authorized to
post copies of his work using our television promos, sweepers, movie trailers, etc.; on
his websites and blogs where his voice and likeness are used.

His voice has contributed to PIX's overall strong performance in a highly competitive
category. We appreciate the hard work and flair that constantly reflects in his work
which has helped us stay ahead of competition.
Thanking you.
Yours sincerely,
Amogh Dusad
Vice President & Head - Programming, PIX

Fred R. Barnard once said in the advertising journal Printers’ Ink, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Of course Fred was promoting the use of images for advertising and since Fred said this in 1921 we can reasonably deduce poor Fred hadn’t heard the voice of Kurt Kelly! But I have. 

I haven’t anything close to Fred’s fame but I do

have good ears. And I can tell you without reservation that Kurt Kelly’s voice is worth a thousand pictures. When you need something assuridly sold – hire Kurt Kelly and let him tell your story. I did. And I would again."

Looking forward to hearing it- thanks"

Paul Emami, Director/Producer

Storytellerz/ Marker Entertainment, Inc

Professional. Top notch work. Kurt is the best we've worked with on this site. Received the voice over on time with plenty of options to work with... I didn't even need to have anything revised. Highly recommend!

John Krueger, Producer

"Working with Kurt was a true A+list experience. Our company is based in the Netherlands so we had to work around a +9 hour time zone difference in addition to a tight production deadline. Kurt took away all our worries about making this deadline. No matter what time it was, Kurt was available for recordings. Even at 3 am pdt. Providing not only great recordings but also much needed feedback and input for the script. An all-round pleasant and fun collaboration. Would highly recommend the services of Kurt and Live Video, Inc. to anyone. 5 Star all the way. 

-Mark Wallaard, Active Studios, the Netherlands."

Excellent. I'd hire you. Maybe if they'd hire me at CNN that could happen. Good work.

 Who doesn't know Kurt Kelly? He really gets around - LOL - in all seriousness Kurt stands out above the rest. Not only is he talented and dedicated, he gets himself out there and makes himself known. Kurt takes his talents and business savvy seriously and they are the perfect mix. The Voice industry is 50% skills and 50% business and Kurt Kelly is extremely proficient in both. A hard worker, with a giving heart. It is without hesitation that I recommend Kurt Kelly in any capacity

Excellent work! We are a German Film-Production and needed a quick recording for one of or clients. Kurt realized everything in a terrific way.

Fast, professional and with a brilliant voice. Thanks again. Looking forward to

engage you again.

- Martin A. Leimbach CEO Gateway57 Limited, Branch office Munich/Germany

I first became acquainted with Mr. Kelly in 2010, when a client of ours

requested a voice sample after having heard Kurt’s commercial demo off

AudioFreelances website (my company).  Needless

to say, he got the job.

It was a pleasure to work with Kurt on the promotional video - PureMed. I would

like to express my respect and appreciation for this fine voice talent, who

brought outstanding contribution to PureMed’s end product. His ability to take

directions, his recording quality and efficiency was second to none.

I look forward to working with Kurt in the near future.

“Simply stated.... Kurt is a talented, ambitious and creative guy.”

John Mammoser, Comedy Writer / Voiceover / Audio Engineer, Clear Channel

“Kurt has a world of experience behind him... a solid performance and sound with a lot of "gut and soul" to

his work.” 

Rick Lance, Voice Over Artist, Rick Lance Studio

“Kurt is an extremely talented VO artist. He's got a great voice and is a real pro in every sense of the word.”

Steven Reisberg, VO Booth Director, TGMD Talent Agency

“Kurt's talent is not to be outdone by his generosity and good nature. I am also a voiceover artist and look forward to the day that I might actually work with him in the near future. Regards,

“Kurt's attention to detail and professionalism is un-surpassed......not to mention he's a great guy to work

with. A truly amazing talent!” 

Billy Craig, Owner/Partner,

“If a picture is worth a thousand words.... strong voice messages must be worth at least 795. You must project a strong image when you do radio, online voice-over for streaming video presentations, podcast, even positive v/m and switchboard announcements. I believe professional voice work is a component of success, and a unified "image" with Kurt's voice across the enterprise is a subtle but powerful addition.”

Tibby Brown Parachute Manager, Venture Capital firm 

Hello Kurt,  my name is Ben Valks and founder of the Black Jaguar Foundation. So far your voice has made a very good impression in one 'boardroom' already.. and reactions from others are positive too..  We are happy with the result, thanks for your part of charity fee / contribution to the project.

Thanks for spreading the 'word' that Wild Black Jaguars still exists......, but that it's just a matter of time, if the illegal deforestation and hunting goes on!  90% of the total jaguar population of 1970 has already been wiped out!

You have great range. My favorite is the one that’s about 75% LaFontaine, 20% Morgan Freeman, and 5% Kiefer Sutherland.

Mike Kunert

Hello Kurt!

 I have good News: my client approves your voice over work without changes! He was

really happy! 

 Thanks a lot for your professionalism. It was a great pleasure for me to work with you. Hopefully, we will see (or better hear) us
soon again..
