We have designed international productions for some of the industry’s most respected producers and through our delivery of quality designs at a continuously speedy pace to always meet the pipeline needs we have always received excellent feedback.  In a streamlined digital process we aim to meet production needs at every turn.

Voice Recording

Telegael provides a full casting, talent coordination, voice directing and recording service for productions.

We offer in-perpetuity (non-theatrical) buyouts so that payment of residuals is avoided. We source our talent and voice directors from UK, Europe and Ireland and can provide a full range of English accents – UK, North American and Mid-Atlantic.

We record in acoustically designed studios.  Telegael has produced the voices for many shows including Zombie Hotel, Chloe’s Closet, Skunk Fu, Bunny Maloney, Freefonix, Inis Cool, Groove High and The Woodlies.
