In a world where a select group of men use their unique voiceover talents comes the short film that brought a nation to its feet!

Experience this gem featuring some of the most beloved and recognizable voices in the movie trailer voice over business, Don LaFontaine, John Leader, Al Chalk, Mark Elliot, and Nick Tate with a cameo voice appearance by Hal Douglas.

Sound Familiar?

Many of the voices you've just heard in the video are immediately recognizable. Isn't it amazing to see the people behind those magical, exciting and legendary voices?

No other video captures the iconic sound of Hollywood, the box office and makes you want to eat popcorn more than this one.

3 Interesting Facts

1. The limo in this video belonged to the late Don LaFontaine, featured prominently in the film. Don used to have his own limousine at one point and often brought others along for the ride when he'd go from studio to studio before he could ISDN his sessions from home. These were called "ride alongs" by those who got to go with him.

2. There is a famous voice in this video that did not bare his face... did you catch the voice over cameo made by Hal Douglas? Hal Douglas is another significant movie trailer voice over artist. To see a video him acting up in the booth, check out "Voice Over Guy Gets Fired."

3. Mark Elliot (b. 1939), the primary voice of Walt Disney Entertainment, is perhaps the most identifiable voice of a brand. Mark's voice represents Disney films and is also used in their commercials.

Who is Your Favorite Movie Trailer Voice?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Stephanie

    Have seen this video a number of times now and it always makes me smile. I smile in awe of the talent, smile at the story line, smile at the humour and smile for the Aussie contingent....go Nick Tate !

      It'a all about style, evidently. Dark and edgy vs. bright and yellow. *Note to self... update wardrobe for more versatility. Who needs a voice, it's all in the clothes!

      Love it!
