BEYOND THE DIMPLE
You know it when you hear it. It’s the authentically friendly narrator in a commercial that draws you in. Or the voice of that cool professor you always loved — teaching you something new. It’s definitely the sound of a leader inspiring their team to take the corporate world by storm. There’s just something in the relatable, direct but genuine sound that draws you in and keeps you coming back for more. You might not know what it is, but I do. It’s the Dimple Effect. Hi, I’m Shaquana Bell and I’ve always been remembered for my dimples.
Now, I want to be remembered for my dimples AND my voice. I love my job as a female voice over talent because I get to engage listeners, entertain and inspire. Honestly, it comes naturally but there was, and still is, a lot to discover. As an African American, I get to partner with clients to represent brands that speak directly to my demographic. As a millennial, I bring along my unique point of view and cultural experiences. So, when you’re looking for a voice actor you’re looking for the energy, charisma, and imagination between two dimples.
The Dimple Effect isn’t just what you’ll hear in my voice, it’s also the smile that will appear on your face when you work with me. In addition to the fun we’ll have, you’ll benefit from my acting education at the SUNY New Paltz, NY Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and Edge Studio. Along with my extensive experience working on creative projects like podcasts, mobile apps, eLearning, commercials, live stream, medical and corporate narration.
I hold the same amount of respect for your projects as you and am determined to always provide reliable, quick turnaround and transparent communication. We’re partners — your success is my success and I know we’ll have a great time getting there together. The Dimple Effect does everything except disappoint so contact me to collaborate on your next project.
