- Markus Steffen, Producer, Germany
Being Dutch, I love the water. This is no surprise as Holland was created by re-claiming the land. The Netherlands (Holland) is a country that thrives on its export. And fittingly, I'm an export too. I moved to the UK in 2006.
Many businesses like Apple, Vodafone, AirBnB and Siemens use my Dutch voice-overs with their video productions. That's 80% of my day-to-day. But the other 20% can come as a surprise because some of my clients prefer to have the same voice for their English videos with a Dutch accent. Two for one (or in Dutch that's: 'twee voor de prijs van één').
I love working in my studio, being creative and promptly getting the job done with success.
I have always found it quite humbling to carry the same surname as the famous Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. I feel a connection there. It makes me believe that things can be achieved with diligence, hard work and an eye for detail.
Whilst Johannes Vermeer may have worn an apron for all the paint splatters, I rather stick with a cool t-shirt, jeans and a comfy pair of shoes when voicing for you behind the mic.
After a long day of voicing I like to relax with my wife, go to the cinema or out for a meal: a bowl of chicken noodle soup, a colourful salad with raisins and nuts and then a saté chicken with French bread and I'm completely in my element. Eet smakelijk!
