Audio for your listening pleasure!
In this section, you’d usually find a short “bio” about me, Justin Fraction. However, in the interest of not pulling my hair out trying to summarize my work and my life, (as I love to let my voice speak for itself) how about I answer several questions from an online question generator.
Hopefully, you’ll find the answers your seeking through this incredible internet application!
Describe your perfect day: “I’d have to say April 25 because it’s not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.” Yes, that’s a quote from Miss Congeniality but it’s also very true! I’ve been working as a voice actor for over 10 years on everything from games, apps, radio imaging, tv commercials, and promos. No matter the weather conditions, I always get it done on time whether I’m working in your studio or mine in a light jacket or a heavy coat. (Although I prefer shorts.)
If you could acquire any skill, what would you choose?: I’m really good at editing video and audio thanks to my undergrad degree in Film & Video along with my appearances on the TPS sports news channel on Youtube where I sometimes host and edit. So maybe being able to stand on one foot without falling over would be a great help in the future.
Do you read reviews about a movie before deciding whether to watch it or not?: I’m really good at taking direction but I’m also very good at being creative when given the chance. So while I do read reviews, I’m also fully capable of striking out on my own and making my own choices when necessary. It’s always up to the client but I love it when they let me play.
Would you rather be the best player on a horrible team or the worst player on a great team?: I always strive to be the best player on any team but I don’t believe any team is truly horrible or great. I think it’s more complicated than that. It’s about working together as a team, as I do with my clients, and coming up with the best product possible for presentation. While I might bring the voice, it’s all a collaborative process which I love.
What accomplishments are you most proud of?: My family: which consists of me and my microphone locker. I love pointing out to people that you can hear me in a Pillsbury commercial, a Band-Aid commercial, or a promo for a sporting event on your radio. I love being able to tell people to listen to a book that I’m voicing or a manual that I read (although that last one is a bit tricky for them but if they love learning about the history of piping I know I can make it sound interesting!)
But really my greatest accomplishment is being able to do what I love every day and entertaining people because I’m here to have a good time and make some killer audio, and I hope you and they are ready to listen to it.
