Convergence, Entertainment and Communication
"If I were to sum up my opinion of Mel Allens work in one sentence, that sentence would have to contain the following words: Precision, detail and nuance.
I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Allen... During that time I experienced for myself the depth of skill, and craftsmanship which have earned him his reputation as a top notch producer, creator and performer in the broadcasting business. More than merely technically adept, Mel's approach to production is along the lines of alchemy; in that is as much art, as it is science. Every layer of every project is replete with small judiciously deployed details which all mike for a highly polished and effective result.
As a voice artist, Mel takes his natural gift of great pipes several steps further by subtly shading each read to match the mood and message inherent in the copy. And as a director, I have also seen him bring out the same depth of performance in other voice artists.
Given, his innate abilities, his mix and mastery of skills Its clear that a production studio is an optimal environment for Mel Allen. Your project couldnt be in better hands."
Voice Over Talent & Coach
"I had the pleasure of working with Mel over the last year. His deep, melodic voice is true music to the ears. More important, however, is Mel's pitch-perfect approach to a script. Mel's talent includes being able to teach Voice Over talent (new and seasoned) this skill. As a coach, he has been delightful to work with. The students he sends to me for recording are always ready to go!"

Kitchens By Design
"I worked with Mel creating a radio commercial... My mother and I have a kitchen showroom and we wanted to create something that expressed the mother/daughter team and our approach to design. Mel asked us a lot of creative questions and edited our answers, making a great commercial! Mom and I were a bit nervous as we recorded, but Mel helped calm our nerves by making the recording process more like a conversation instead of an interview. I would highly recommend working with Mel. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative"
