"When the production of Ballet is Beautiful was first conceived, the idea of linking quotations to the various items was mooted. This evolved into threading the evening through the quotations, but whether to do this by projections or a voice over was a concern. "The decision to use a voice over was made easy by Ashley Dowds whose voice, diction and vocal skills enhanced the whole production. Ashley’s involvement with the exercise was a pleasure in every way. He responded to our questions and concerns immediately and produced the final product timeously. "Ballet is Beautiful is innovative in many ways not least by the introduction into a sphere where the spoken word is not usually included. Ashley’s contribution to this production has added immeasurably to the original concept."
"Ash was a dream to work with, no matter how many times we have had to re-record, he has made a plan to attend last minute sessions, with the same enthusiasm and expertise of the first recording..."
"I was producing a range of video clips for a client who required voice overs in six different languages. Having Ashley as one of the team was an absolute pleasure. He was professional, prompt and although we were operating remotely (me in the UK and him in SA) he had a firm grasp of the requirement, fully understood the brief and provided a very prompt turnaround time. He delivered work of a very high standard, to the approval of the client and myself. I would not hesitate to work with him again."
