Welcome to the website of
Professional singer, voice artist and narrator.
Co -Owner/Narrator for JDescribe DV Narration & Audiobooks. www.JDescribe.com
JDescribe provides both standard description as well as DNA™ Dual Narration Added formats in English and French for television, film and documentaries.
DNA™ Dual Narration Added- is a method of description whereby dual narration is added in the form of male and female narrators. This allows for a more dynamic and entertaining delivery of description. DNA™ was initially conceived during the process of choosing male vs female narrators for particular projects. At times it was difficult to determine which would better suit the piece, thus the idea of using both was born. Adding a dual narrative track lends itself to a more dramatic and varied performance for the listener. After hearing DNA™ layered into a film we knew there would be countless applications where this format could be showcased.
