Voice Over Talent in Montreal

As my voice cracked mid-sentence as a kid,  I never thought I would be making a living using my voice. I certainly was not a singer !   I did try to sing in a band...but I digress.
I knew however that I loved to imitate my favorite cartoon characters, AND I knew I wanted to become a broadcaster.
Well, with  all the right courses throughout my career... and no thanks to the school guidance counselors...

I forged my way into producing radio shows and eventually becoming an on-air personality as well!

Living in Montreal helped my get a perfectly bilingual education and hone my skills with several accents, dialect and ....dare i say it ... faux pas! (missteps).

But that is what makes up experience, polishing our skills, carving out bad habits etc... With more specialized training in voice work, acting classes, some theater volunteering...it all seemed to make sense!

When I am asked, what was the decisive moment that triggered my love for voice overs... I have to say, watching The TRANSFORMERS cartoons a s kid!

Since becoming a professional voice talent in Montreal, I have supplied countless voice over jobs throughout the world!  Working with studios and artists, comedians, actors and sound engineers that are out of this world !  I would not trade this profession for any other !

The commitment to do this job on a full-time basis was not easy. It took the right guidance from folks like Harland Hogan... courses, workshops, and so much more from the likes of producer / casting director Deb Munro, endless hours or reading books and articles about voice overs (which were not easy to come by pre-internet, you know !)

Among many others, I have been fortunate to voice jobs for Reebok, Ray-Ban, RBC, Disney, EB Games, Toyo Tires, Lasik, Rockwell, Breast Cancer Society, Amarula, Just for Laughs, Mazda, Expedia, Permacon, Tostitos, Hoover... and to be associated with great sports teams like the USL Cometes, The Montreal Impact SC and more recently, the Laval Rocket an AHL Hockey team owned and operated by the Montreal Canadiens !  (See and hear more here)


All this to say, its absolutely TRUE!

I owe my great career to many events gone right and wrong, lots of hard work... but mostly understanding the market (as an entrepreneur) and always keeping an ear to the ground ....with a leg up ready to cross the road for the next gig!

PS :  Would I scare anyone if I told you, auditions were ALL held in studios and in person back then !

In a sense ...Its much easier now,  but the competition grows every day.  So take the time to invest on yourself, your skills and your business sense, before buying a mic and creating a website!

GRATEFUL.... ALWAYS!

Pond Hockey leads to great achievements

Playing pond hockey is something all Canadians have done.... and are still actively doing !
When ice is not available, this translate to shinny! The game of hockey is so well versed in Canada that many Canadians (me included) take advantage of any family reunion, friends gathering to get out there and poke the stick at a ball or puck.. well,   with some degree of skill or other!



Perhaps we are inspired by the many other Canadians that  have come before us. Teaching us patience, hand-eye coordination, skill and determination.  Whatever the reason we love this sport so much, we tend to look up to those who have shared this common ground with us... Those who have not only lived the dream of playing in the BIG league... but have also contributed to our national sport... in more ways than we can shake a stick at (pun intended!)

Among those, are some great hockey heroes whose names are engraved on the Stanley Cup and who's numbers' hang high atop the raster at major rinks! But some of those Hockey heroes are also behind the limelight. Their passion and determination shine brighter than any light! They are the ones that are implicated at the local levels, those who aspire to making their communities something great through the passion for our national sport.

Ken Williams is one of those people. He shares his 32-year hockey career with all of us, but also has a special kinship with Newfoundland & Labrador.

His hard work, valuable insight and contributions, coupled with a myriad of fantastic decisions have made him a great ambassador to the game in Canada!

Take the time to watch this video to understand why Hockey Canada is so proud of Ken Williams and why, we as Canadians are too !

I was especially proud to have contributed my voice for the narration of this video !

Claudio Napoleoni dans le journal Metro



Les amateurs de hockey ainsi que le Rocket de Laval ont opté pour 




Claudio Napoleoni sera la voix du Rocket de Laval


Claudio Napoleoni pour être l’annonceur maison des matchs de la nouvelle formation de la Ligue américaine de hockey (LAH), à la Place Bell.
Plus de 5000 personnes ont voté pour lui. Il annoncera donc les buts et les pénalités du club-école des Canadiens et de leurs visiteurs dès le 6 octobre, jour du match inaugural.
«J’ai toujours cru en mes chances même si je n’ai pas un grand réseau de contacts, lance humblement le vainqueur du concours dans une entrevue accordée à TC Media. J’avais une stratégie et je me suis donné à fond dans cette aventure en faisant du porte à porte.

«J’étais dans la piscine quand Vincent Lucier, président de la Place Bell, m’a annoncé la bonne nouvelle, enchaîne-t-il. Lors de son appel téléphonique, il ne me l’a pas dit immédiatement que j’avais gagné. Quand il m’a signifié d’être prêt le 6 octobre, je ne touchais plus au fond de la piscine.»
Michel Lacroix, la voix du Tricolore, a remis un chandail du Rocket au gagnant avant de se diriger derrière le banc des pénalités et signer l’entente d’une saison, le 13 juin.
Un beau défiComment envisage-t-il sa première journée à son poste d’annonceur? «J’aurai beaucoup de sueur sous les bras», admet-il avec humour. Ce sera un challenge extraordinaire. Je suis très bien encadré et je souhaite apporter une belle énergie.»
Il y a une dizaine d’années, Claudio avait rencontré Michel Lacroix au Centre Bell lors d’une journée avec les enfants et les joueurs des Canadiens de Montréal. Il lui avait alors dit sans prétention qu’il aimerait un jour avoir le poste d’annonceur des Canadiens. «Il a dit qu’il me le souhaitait. Ce que j’ai retenu de notre conversation, c’est qu’il a insisté sur le fait d’avoir du plaisir. C’est ce que je vais faire à la barre du Rocket.»
Candidat numéro 9
Claudio avait le numéro 9 parmi les candidats, soit celui de Maurice Richard. Est-ce que cela lui a porté chance? «Je pense que oui. Le numéro 9 était sans doute un numéro de prédilection.»
Plus de 300 personnes avaient posé leur candidature, alors que quatre finalistes ont été retenus. Outre le gagnant, Guy Aubry, Charles-Étienne Auger et Frédéric Abaji étaient les autres finalistes. Michel Lacroix a passé les auditions au quatuor, qui devait annoncer un but et le choix des trois étoiles.
Des Comètes au RocketClaudio est une figure connue à Laval. De 2013 à 2015, il a été la voix de la formation féminine semi-professionnelle des Comètes de Laval, de la W-League, au Complexe sportif Bois-de-Boulogne.
L’homme de 47 ans de Duvernay fait partie de la Chambre de commerce de Laval. Il a créé son entreprise de Voice Over. «Je pense que ma polyvalence dans les voix a plu au Rocket.»
Il rêve aux JONarrateur de profession, il croit que de présenter sa candidature pour ce poste est un parcours essentiel pour arriver à réaliser son rêve devenir annonceur aux Jeux olympiques.
«J’ai plusieurs rêves, mais celui d’être annonceur pour le Rocket est devenu une réalité.»
À sa retraite, il envisage de prêter sa voix aux Jeux olympiques. Il aimerait annoncer les parties de hockey luge. «Ça me fascine ce sport», termine-t-il.
