Jay Hackett is a professional Voice Actor for Radio & TV Commercials & Promos, Award Shows, Corporate & Narration work.
I grew up in sunny bayside Melbourne, & post Secondary school, trained in Drama & Radio for a year or so, before working on some Crawford & Grundy Shows. These & a D.J job on the Fairstar, propelled me to Sydney where a stint on The Restless Years & a role in a pilot telemovie called A Special Place, encouraged a move there. Over a decade of roles followed in Film, Theatre & TV, including Puberty Blues, One Night Stand, The Rocky Horror Show ’81, ’82 Tour, Hating Alison Ashley, Come in Spinner, Facts of Life Downunder & Ultraman.
In 1991, I discovered Voice Over work, & thus a new life began.
I’ve had some really fun jobs over the ensuing years including voicing the 2DAYFM Network, & 7 Network for long periods, doing 9 Logie Awards in a row, live from side of stage. Great advertising campaigns like Mastercard, Audi, RTA, AAMI, the VRC, & 2nds World have been a joy. Doing movie promos for the Movie Network for a couple of years was also a hoot. I’ve had the pleasure of voicing some reality TV with The Biggest Loser & Masterchef Australia.
Less public but equally rewarding involves the work on Corporate Narration with various clients & Industry Award nights.
Now , working a lot from home, am finally Source Connected, which is exciting, as I’ve only ever recorded & delivered before & this opens up a new world of opportunity to be IN YOUR STUDIO (aurally) , anywhere around the globe.
I am, of course, still happy to record & deliver high quality, de breathed WAV files of your commercials, promotions, narratives etc, anywhere, anytime, with your direct instructions in writing or on the line.
