'Brent pulled incredible performances out of me and taught me how to become a better voice actor AND auditioner. I’m pleased with how my demo at Halfyard Studios turned out, and it already landed me an agent!'
'Working with Halfyard Studios has been an essential first step into the world of Voice Over! Brent’s professionalism, knowledge of the industry, and love of the craft is unparalleled by any instructor I have worked with. He cares for his student’s, and their success, and it truly shows in the quality of the demos. Will definitely be a lifetime student!

"I couldn't be happier with the experience and demo that followed. The wealth of knowledge Brent left me to unpack is incredible. Tricks and tips every voice professional should have in their tool kit. Brent has helped me step into this cut-throat business with confidence and style. Thanks again, Brent."

"Brent is a focused, constructively critical and extremely supportive and kind mentor. Being able to get both positive and negative feedback about specifics of my performance from him ensured that we got to address issues with my performance quickly and make the most of each session. He was able to give me a good time estimate for how long it would take us to complete training and my animation demo, which I couldn’t be more happy with.
Brent was able to help me not only come out of my shell more, but also helped me tackle the more practical aspects of voice over. I am so grateful that I’ve had a chance to work with him and start my journey as a voice actor. His advice and insight have been invaluable. I look forward to working with him again in the future".
"Brent this rocks!!! Thank you so much! Posting to all my sites. There is range, there is quality - I would use my voice on a commercial for sure 😂 Thanks for all the help."
Just wanted to let you know that I went in for a casting director who has never brought me in to audition before today and he specifically told me that he loved my demo and will be bringing me back a lot! So thanks for working with me on my demo"
"It was a pleasure to work with Brent on creating my very first commercial demo. He was a fantastic resource throughout the whole process from helping to hand pick scripts that showcased my unique voice to recording and reworking spots to make sure I got the best performance. I will continue to work with Brent on auditions and developing my voice. Thanks again!"
"After working with Brent over a few months my technique and confidence improved dramatically!! And I landed an agent after he produced my demo! Great Coach...Great Voice Actor"

Brent was amazing! I went in with little experience, and came out with a strong New York accent. Brent is a very supportive teacher, and I always wanted to come back.

Thank you, Brent Halfyard!
Our son Aiden came to Brent with a voiceover narration under his belt, but no other training. We wanted him to get a demo done, but weren’t sure how to train him best to get him prepared for all types of voice work. We were incredibly impressed with Brent’s professionalism, his demeanour with our son ( both pushing him out of his comfort zone and encouraging his progress) and the way he put together a comprehensive coaching plan. We also appreciated the excellent studio that Brent has, to give him the best quality of audio possible ( and a comfortable place for parents to wait!) Aiden was definitely pushed to learn new skills, and had an incredible amount of fun doing it. The end result was a fantastic demo! We will definitely be back for future coaching and taped auditions!
"Brent is just an AMAZING teacher and mentor. He took our 11 years old son to a new level of skills and knowledge in acting and voice over. After just a few sessions our son booked a 26 episodes lead role in a PBS show . This couldn’t be done without Brent’s support and mentorship. We are so blessed to know him. Thank you Brent for your professionalism and dedication. Your attitude and confidence is just what our child needs in order to succeed in life."

"Brent has a huge wealth of professional knowledge to share and he really helped set me on the path to a self-sustained voice acting career. Even if you're completely new to the craft, you'll leave his workshop with the skills and confidence you need to start building on your own."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Halfyard Productions for the past 7 years as an Account Executive for CFNR Radio Network. I work with many clients from small business owners with very little marketing experience, to large corporate companies with specialized marketing departments. Working with such a variety of clients, I have complete peace of mind with Brent’s expertise and attention to detail, from the creative concept, writing, to choosing the right VO to flawless production. I can trust that my client’s needs are being met to the highest standards.
For myself personally, last year I hit record breaking sales over the 26-year history of the Radio Network. Halfyard Productions has played a critical role in my success!"
