Welcome to Quirky Voices Website! Huzzahs you found us!
Quirky Voices is a Company started by me - Sarah Golding - in 2017 with the aim of producing my own audio drama, exploring the craft of voice acting via MADIVA Podcast, and running voice acting and drama workshops for all kinds of events and participants worldwide.
Voice Acting has been an absolute joy to jump into with both feet in the last five+ years. I love accents I love fresh scripts I love collaboration I love creation of new projects I love being part of storytelling in all shapes and sizes and also not using commas. I love it when people say they’ve heard me as so and so or enjoyed me as whatsername or even simply recognised me as a mostly non speaking character in a podcast from my cough. 😎😱
I also love to write, edit, sound design (steep learning curve here) and voice act direct and produce. I have been a theatre director for so many decades for various communities, and acted on and off for years onstage. I teach LAMDA in a school and balance being a mum to two amazing kids who surprise and amaze and lift me everyday with their awesome everythings.
I truly am keen to help and support other women creatives too and will hopefully utilise this business to promote and encourage folks identifying as female to also jump into audio drama creating and voice acting, whilst of course not putting off the gentlemen, for I work with, and for, and alongside many. Please do get in touch if you would like to fathom anything from my experiences so far.... QuirkyVoices@gmail.com
I started MADIVA podcast as a way of giving people a starter pack type source of information if just starting out in voice acting. A lot is self explanatory and most people would come to voice acting having chased it as a passion in other mediums I’m sure. MADIVA SEASON 2 is more about speaking to voice actors who HAVE made a mark and what they’ve done in certain areas of expertise. Sharing experience and giving advice. This launched in September 2018 and Season 2 is well underway - #havealistendooo
I am writing as much as I can as well as starting to produce my own works alongside voice acting for many other wonderful folks. I feel it is important to nurture new talent and as in 2018, have launched a script writing competition in collaboration with Fiona Thraille of Dashing Onions to find 2 amazing Audio Fiction scripts to perform live at a London venue event. To be announced soon! This will be a further collaboration with UK based talent in performance but open to all worldwide! See the SCRIPT WRITING PAGE for more info.
I have several projects in various phases including
Dorothy : Ghost Botherer
The Disaster Season - Disaster Airship/Galleon/RocketShip/BigPlane/TallHotel
A very British Spy
and this year will release MADCAP 2019. A short season of 7 episodes of Dystopian Future Audio Fiction. Full casts, 5 new writers and me releasing new stories into the world....
Check out the MADCAP PAGE for cast blogs and more info...thank you.
