From John Zak:
"I spent much of my life in the visual world as a photographer, lighting director, and director, but I have never lost my fascination for the spoken word, for reading, and for acting, which were my first loves since childhood. Thinking about combining these passions, it has been exciting to explore voice over work. I had done narration on my own films and had experienced the pleasure of hearing audiences react to the sound track, as well as the visuals. Then, David H. Lawrence XVII came into my life and I began regular study with him over the course of several years. I also had the pleasure of studying with Cedering Fox, the golden "voice" of the Oscars.
To me, there is nothing like the spoken word to inspire, inform, entertain, and educate, and there is nothing more exciting than combining age-old traditions of telling stories around a campfire with the wonders of our miraculous electronic age.
