REVIEWS

  1. Jerra was just fantastic to work with. His first read was pretty much on the money, meaning we were able to capture a real range of tone and intonation throughout the piece. He took this direction effortlessly, humoured all of our ‘can we try’ requests, and was really dedicated to doing a great job. A real young professional – would definitely recommend.

  2. Jerra is an amazing little talent and will no doubt lead the way for future Australian voice talent. He did not miss a beat when he was thrown in the booth with one of Australia’s leading adult voice artists.

    Jerra was a pleasure to work with and took direction like the professional that he is. I am looking forward to our next session.

  3. Neville is the heart and soul of Kangaroo Beach and when I first heard Jerra’s audition piece, I almost fell out of my chair with excitement. He was so perfect for the part, warm, sweet, innocent, with hilarious and heartfelt delivery. We’ve been blessed to have him star in Kangaroo Beach, and I’ve now worked with him on another upcoming project. He’s such a young professional in the booth, needing very little direction to nail each and every line. Thank you Jerra, we couldn’t have done it without you!

  4. We loved working with Jerra – he has a very authentic and natural voice. He took direction brilliantly and pretty much nailed everything on first take. He has a very bright future ahead!

  5. It was a pleasure to work with Jerra, he’s such a star and so lovely! He blew us all away on the weekend of the shoot – his scenes are my personal favourites and his voice over line is so powerful! I wish him all the best – he has an amazing future ahead of him in this industry.

  6. Not only did Jerra nail every line with perfect diction and enthusiasm, but he also did so primarily on the first take; making my attendance at the session rather unnecessary!

  7. Jerra combines a naturally unique voice with a professionalism and ability to take direction that belies his age. He brings an incredibly dynamic range of energy to a performance which he wields with apparent effortlessness. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jerra.

  8. Jerra is the gem we were looking for after going through hundreds of voices. He is a good listener and hence takes directions well, but also brings his own spin and character to scenes. We ended up with some brilliant performances that melt the heart one moment or make you laugh the next.

  11. I’ve been writing commercial campaigns for 20 years, and I’ve never met a young voice actor with Jerra’s ability to nail the required tone and delivery so quickly and professionally.

    Great job Jerra, what a gun!
