WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
Dervla is everything you could possibly ask for in a narrator – her recordings are of the highest quality, her turnaround time is lightning fast, and she’s incredibly easy to work with. An all-around fantastic business partner.
MEREDITH B - FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY
As director of voice for TwentyBN, I was responsible for casting an actor who could communicate all the nuances of a professional fitness instructor in a fun, friendly, and not-too-serious manner. From Dervla’s very first audition tape, I knew she was the one to bring our character Allie to life. Every callback reinforced that, as she was instantly able to adjust her delivery based on feedback provided by myself, an experienced director, and other members of my team who had never given notes to an actor before. That professionalism and dexterity with the work continues in the studio, where Dervla never fails to exceed expectations despite long sessions and occasionally repetitive, even tedious, tasks (I could listen to her count to 100 all day!)
Dervla even adjusted to a major redirect of the tone and direction of the voice after many hours of recording. She never complains or hesitates, and is often able to anticipate my notes before I give them!
Dervla Trainor is absolutely the finest voice actor I’ve ever worked with and I would totally recommend her for any and all projects without hesitation.
COLIN MUNCH - COPYWRITER & DIRECTOR OF VOICE, TWENTYBN
I've been working with Dervla for over a year and she's been a consummate professional throughout that time - communicative, friendly and striving to deliver what we need (even if it takes a little more effort). I would not hesitate to work with her again.
