I love it

My background as a professional actor and 13 years experience in the industry give me a solid understanding of a wide range of texts, the dynamics within and how to effectively communicate core values, create emotions and capture an audience. 

 

I'm passionate about voiceovers. The precision and attention to detail in the studio, the emotional journey for the listener and a successful campaign for the client.

 

Words move us. They carry emotions and have a substantial effect on us. As does a voice. We like listening to a pleasant voice. We trust it.

 

This combination inspires me. It's storytelling - not around the campfire, but on social media, on the radio & on TV.

SYNOPSIS

Did you know that Tasmanian rainwater goes great with a cheese platter?

As a trained water sommelier, and soon to be water whisperer, Hugo Rehberg is passionate about all things transparent, wet and liquid. 

He advises individuals and restaurants on the suitable aqua to match their culinary dish.

Hugo and his wondrous water knowledge have, finally, come to the attention of the media and he gives an interview.
