Chris Shapcotte is a multi-award winning and experienced radio imaging producer and voice over talent. He has spent over 13 years working in markets across Canada, and the last 11 years producing radio imaging and specialty content in Toronto. He now works full time out of his home studio in Vancouver.
Chris has worked on everything from song intros to national specials for the Grammy Awards, and Christmas specials airing all over Canada.
This vast experience with radio branding puts Chris in a special position; he brings written word to life, and understands the time and resource constraints our industry is facing.
Imaging for your radio station(s), audio production services for commercials and podcasts, voice over recording for your brand or media project - Chris would love to chat about it!
Chris has the extremely unique ability to not only invent outstanding production, but a craft to write, and talent to voice... and zeal to challenge himself with new ear-worms other producers only try to imitate.
Chris is a world class voice talent. He doesn’t just bring your copy alive…he takes it to a new level. There have been many occasions when he’s enhanced a script with just a simple twist in tone and delivery. Chris’s work ethic is mind-blowing…You get a wide variety of ‘takes’ giving you several great options each time…the biggest challenge is in selecting just one…because they’re all brilliantly individual…and you’ll love hearing how much fun he’s having delivering your script.
Chris is one of those rare talents who can do everything from writing, to voice, to production. He's a creative unicorn. Creative, dependable and supremely talented - Chris is our go-to guy for amazing content.
Making Chris the voice of ReelWorld Radio gave us a fresh, younger, cooler sound that really fits with our imaging and the sound we wanted for the station. Best. Decision. Ever.
Professional, talented and most of all - FUN! Chris takes his production seriously and the proof is in the finished product. He knows how to bring out the best in a voice talent through his production knowledge and his ability to direct a read. Working with him was truly one of the highlights of my Voice Over career.
Chris is as passionate as anyone I’ve ever encountered when it comes to audio, voice over, and branding. He has taken years of that passion and poured it into creating all the work he does today! I highly recommend using Chris on your next project. If not, I will find you… and I will… well, you know the rest!
