Justin Gross | Voice Actor

Posts Tagged / Justin Gross

Here’s a promo video I did for the City of Lodi…Lodi? Yup, Lodi, California. The video is beautifully shot by Bongo Post in Sacramento. Voice over by Justin Gross.  Hey, if you’re working on a media project and need a male voice over, I’d love to be part of the fun. Voice over is what I do. And I’m using my blog to showcase my work and my passion for the craft. I’ve been a working voice over talent for over 15 years now. Voice over is my day job! And I love it.

Justin Gross Voice Over for Mystic Aquarium

So fun to work with the lovely people at Mystic Aquarium. I love being a teeny, tiny part of the team since they do such wonderful work to promote the health of our oceans and to protect marine life. Amazing stuff.

This was an ad that ran this summer, with yours truly, Justin Gross, providing the voice over.

If you are ever in Mystic, Connecticut, please do yourself a favor and check out the aquarium. I had the honor of visiting last year and it was a fantastic experience.

If you or someone you know is in need of voice over talent, give me a shout! I love what I do and want to voice for YOU!

Voice Over Activity

Well it’s been business as usual for me, Justin Gross, in voice over department. I still marvel at how I’m able to work consistently, even though I’m not in LA anymore. I’m very thankful that’s the case because I absolutely love what I do. This work is always a blessing. And I’m always thrilled to be able to lend my voice to people, companies, ideas, charities, etc. I LOVE being part of the creative process for these media projects.
April 2017 was great…I voiced projects for:

Lassen College-Thanks for Bourns Productions for hiring me to voice some videos about the college Health Professions programs and their somewhat famous Gunsmithing courses.

American Zoological Association-I narrated a Kickstarter campaign video to help them do important work for ocean animals.

Delta Dental Rhode Island-I worked on a small series of commercials where I was the “man-on-the-street” interviewer.

Mystic Aquarium-the fine folks at Blue in Philadelphia asked me to do another round of spots with them. Last year it was for the Frogs Exhibit. This year, it’s for their Weird & Wonderful campaign. If you’ve never been to Mystic Aquarium…GO. It’s such a cool place to visit. I was lucky enough to visit last September and I can’t wait to go again.

Fifth Third Bank- The amazing ad agency in San Francisco, Pereira & O’Dell hired me to do some end tags on their radio campaign for 5/3 Bank. These ad folks were so easy and such a joy to work with. Awesome ad agency.

Ohio Lottery-I voice a few spots for their latest campaign.

Lackawana College-I voiced more spots for the Pennsylvania college thanks to the wonderful creative agency Craft. I love doing college spots as I’m a fan of higher education.

Nike-this was an internal project for the folks near Portland that work for the company.

Blue Moon-well, I didn’t record any new spots…but they did renew an old one I did:)

If anyone out there is in need of a younger, male voice over talent, look no further. I’m available anytime from my little home studio next door to my house. I would love to spread the VO love and have my voice on your creative project. So hit me up! Let’s VO together:)

Political Ads

How I wish I could snag more political ad work. That would be amazing. I know as a consumer of media, I’m no fan of political advertising. But as a voice over talent…I see it as a great opportunity. But…I don’t typically get tons of political ad work. Mostly because I think my voice is younger sounding. Many political ads go for the “older” type voices or more serious, stereotypical announcer voices.  But this is sort of a political advertisement and I’m so happy that the ad agency and client took a chance on a voice like mine. So a big sloppy kiss and a THANK YOU to Stamp Idea Group in Montgomery, Alabama for their awesome creative thinking and work. Thank you for taking a chance on my voice for your spot. I think it turned out great. So if you’re looking for a younger, male voice for your political ad…look my way. I can work anytime, 24/7 since I have my own home studio space. I am at your voice over service.

Never Give Up

I’ve been truly blessed to be a working voice over actor for well over 15 years now. This line of work has brought me so many wonderful opportunities in life. It has truly allowed me to live a life I truly love. One of the main reasons that I think I’ve been able to work so long in this business boils to one word: persistence. I’ve never given up. I’ve always carried on. This line of work has had low points: I’ve been fired on the spot during a VO session, I’ve been “kicked out” of Hollywood (another story for another time), I’ve endured slow periods, I’ve been replaced on ad campaigns…but I’m still here. Working away, almost everyday. After each one of my disappointments, I still get up everyday and do every audition that comes my way. This business is never short of disappointments. I do most of my auditions thinking that I’m really quite perfect for almost every job. Unfortunately…I’m only right about 5% of the time or less. If that’s not disappointing, I don’t know what is.

Voice over is a branch of show business. And in show business, there is something to be said for sticking it out. I’ve been making a good living doing VO for 15 years, but it took me 4 years to get there. I was lucky to have started very young and my natural exuberance likely helped me stick to it. There’s an eternal optimist in me that always thinks a cool job is right around the corner.

My advice to those wanting to make a career in voice is to stick with it, never give up, and be persistent. Yes, I am good at what I do. But more than that, it’s being good and being persistent.

Visit Lodi

I’m thrilled to have voiced a really beautiful spot for a campaign called “Visit Lodi”. It’s getting people to see how beautiful Lodi is and showcasing how many cool things people can do here…and best of all, it’s just a short drive from the SF Bay Area. It’s a very subtle piece of media imagery and I almost didn’t recognize my voice on the spot. It was created by the amazing talents at Bongo Post in Sacramento: http://bongopost.com/

Check this spot out. I LOVE it, and I hope you do, too. And..Visit Lodi! http://www.visitlodi.com/
