Australian voice-over for NewBright Industrial Co.

New Bright required an upbeat & engaging, yet gravelly and down-to-earth sounding Australian male voice artist for their ‘Monster Jam’ radio controlled car commercial.

Matinée Multilingual provided the agency with a short-list of voice actors, and Matt-C was selected by the client. Matt is based in Australia, and we recorded him via our ISDN studio with the client present to direct.  I’m sure you will agree Matt did a great job and his Australian voice-over fits the product very well.

Australia was inhabited by the Aboriginal people who came from South East Asia and lived throughout the country. In 1770 Captain James Cook claimed the Island for Britain, who decided to use it as a penal colony. Twenty years later people began to settle in Australia out of choice, rather than being prisoners and more and more people began to settle, especially after gold was found in the 1850s.

In the 1900s, six British colonies were formed and in 1901 these colonies became a Federation. The official language of Australia then became English. The Australian language however, wasn’t standard English, but rather a mixture of Cockney, Irish and the multitude of other accents from Britain. The cockney accent is said to be the most influential.

Australia’s dialects don’t change by region, as they do in many other countries. They change according to different social groups. The Australian language can be split into three groups; Broad Australian, Cultivated Australian and General Australian. The general type is mainly spoken today and it is the accent radio and television presenters speak. There are less cultivated speakers because this dialect was taken from the upper class speech of 19th century English. Broad Australian is associated with a working class accent.

Aboriginal English is a dialect of Australian and is spoken by the indigenous population. Another language in Australia is called Kriol. It is spoken by around 30,000 people in the northern regions of the country. It was developed as a pidgin language between the Aboriginal, Chinese and English speakers who used to trade with each other and it has gradually become a Creole language. To listen to an Australian speaking English in an Australian accent, listen to the cricket commentator Bill Lawry. His Australian accent is very clear.
