Stuntwoman and Voiceover Artist
What’s Happening in October … with Juliette Cheveley – Stuntwoman and Voiceover Artist
What attracted you to your work?
A love of performing, travel and doing crazy sports. By complete contrast, when it comes to doing voice-overs, I was drawn by the challenge of doing the read or portraying a character without being able to sell it on the visual or physical aspect (which is key in stunt work).
What gives you the most satisfaction in your job?
The sheer diversity of the work that I do and when a job goes really well, I am often asked to do more work for that client or production company. Every job is different, from doing fight scenes or falls, crashing vehicles or fire jobs on film sets, to using my RP accent on a corporate voice-over read, documentary narration, audio book or commercial.
What advice can you give to individuals looking for jobs right now?
Be positive and believe in yourself. Keep training and improving your skills, and follow up job applications or approaches for work. Show them that that you’re keen and capable. But don’t take yourself too seriously. People who take themselves too seriously are boring.
What are you looking forward to most this year?
What’s your favourite brand?
Apple – mainly for the iPhone, without which I’d be completely disorganised & probably not stay in touch as easily with friends and family.
What music makes you feel most creative at work?
Meditation music for when I’m working with v/o scripts, or alternatively, funky beats and dance tunes whilst I’m training.
What quote inspires you the most?
“If you organise your life around your passion, then you can turn your passion into your story and then turn your story into something bigger – something that matters.” – Blake Mycoskie
