Nobody answers the question, “What would you like to be when you grow up?” with “A Spanish Voiceover Artist in London”.

When Pilar first arrived in the UK, she didn’t even know such a profession existed. And yet, it’s been the one constant job in her mosaic career. 

In this honest and often funny personal account of the everyday life of a voiceover artist, Pilar Orti uncovers an often invisible profession. Full of reflections on being a freelancer, dealing with clients, training as an actress and finding her podcasting voice, “Hi I’m Here for a Recording” will take you into the recording London studios, down the crowded Edinburgh streets and behind the scenes of a popular animation series. 

"A truly fascinating read that gives a funny and honest account of working as a VO; without trying to it works as a handbook for voiceovers wanting the tread a similar path, avoiding pitfalls along the way." Guy Michaels, Director at Voiceover Kickstart Ltd. 

Pilar continues to work as a voiceover in London (currently as Xuli in GoJetters), while running Virtual not Distant. She’s a prolific podcaster, currently hosting 21st Century Work Life, Management Café and co-hosting Evidence Talks. You can also catch up with her podcasts on Spain: Spain Uncovered and En clave de podcast.
