The German Connection, Meina Kentner: the right German tone
A warm, friendly voice with an exceptionally broad range in vocal age and tone: 16 – 70. And yes: a natural, young, dynamic sound is still in my repertoire!
I’m an all-round voice over, which means I can handle all genres of text with an equally appropriate tone and interpretation: corporate films, commercials. documentaries, lip-sync, guided tours, e-learning and all sorts of characters (e.g. for cartoon films).
Trained in singing, dance and acting at the Akademie voor Kleinkunst in Amsterdam (now Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Cabaret Faculty) and graduated as theatre-maker.
Discovered as voice by Jaap Brand (broadcaster, presenter, presentation-trainer for Dutch TV company VARA and the Sandbergen Media Akademie) during a radio presentation workshop and further developed during extensive practical experience in three countries: The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
These logos below belong to a selection from my list of clients (to drop a few names), though my most demanding projects may have come from other clients.
My repertoire of German accents includes: Cologne, Berlin, Bavaria, Hesse, Hamburg and Vienna.
I can speak German with accents from: The Netherlands, France, Italy, Turkey, Russia and Austria.
‘Can you do Dutch too’?
Yes, I can, for commercials and dialogues! I prefer to leave documentaries or longer corporate films to my much valued native Dutch colleagues.
(But incidentally - an Amsterdam accent is no problem!)
