REVIEWS

  1. It was a privilege to work with Meyne for RMIT’s 2020 Open Day campaign. His ability to embody distinct characters, and bring scripts to life is second to none. Meyne seamlessly incorporated direction into his recording, and I can confidently say the content we produced has been made stronger, and more human as a result of his talent, professionalism and expertise.
