After listening to over two dozen narrators, I heard Lewis’ voice coming from my computer. Except, it wasn’t Lewis’ voice. It was my mentor’s, and suddenly, fifty years were erased, and the man I loved beyond the ability of words to convey and the memories of our adventures together, came back to life. After the project was completed, my wife and I sat and listened to the entire book. We both laughed and cried as Lewis’s voice carried me like a spring wind coming down from Brook’s mountain range and back to the Alaskan wilderness.
In addition to having beautiful voice quality, Lewis is a storyteller. For an historical documentary bound for public television broadcast, we were looking for more than a narrator — someone who could emotionally invest the project and bring the subtle inflections that only come from a voice actor who truly understands the story. His preparation was remarkable. The result is a masterful performance, beyond our hopes, that turned a good story into a great one. As my co-producer said, “He nailed it!” And, what a pleasure to work with such a gentleman!
Lewis did a terrific job. He was very easy to work with — delivered on time, on budget and the quality of the production was technically flawless. His attention to details i.e. accent, pronunciation of names and places was greatly appreciated. Lewis was a joy to work with. We were very pleased!
Lewis was exceptional in his delivery and perfectly captured the expression that we were looking for! We will definitely be working with him again!
The American wit and wisdom is so refreshing as are the stories. What really makes the book is the narrator Lewis Arlt. He literally makes you believe you are sitting across from and listening to a country vet from Texas reminisce about his life. I listen to so many books and in my opinion the narrator makes it or breaks it. Lewis Arlt is in that rarefied class and this book is a gem.
