About Thelma Farmer
.. Shortly after graduating from NTS, I began to get studio work at Listen! Audio doing a range of voice-overs, narrations and jingles: played the lead role in an animated series titled "Quebecio" produced by Cinelume: sang back-up vocals on a Jean-Pierre Ferland album at Le Studio in Morin Heights: performed a lead role in "The Leonard Cohen Show" at Centaur Theatre: appeared in a series of commercials for Lotto Quebec: and worked on several corporate productions...then I hit the road to Toronto where I appeared in many T.V. commercials and corporate series: voiced tv and radio spots and narrations: played Sally Bowels opposite Tom Kneebones MC in "Cabaret": and was actually cracking the jingle scene when life issues carried me to Ottawa. There I was fortunate enough to find work in animation as a series regular on five seasons of "Hoze Hounds" and three seasons of "Benjamin Bear". For several years I voiced a radio and TV campaign for the War Amps.I also voiced an international tv campaign for Corel and a radio campaign for the Rideau Centre, including an improvised jingle which won an Actra Award as well as an Ad and Sales Award. Out of Montreal, I have voiced national tv and radio spots for Canada Post, Nicodern, Lancome and LOreal as well as several for the Government of Canada. On camera work includes an on-going corporate campaign for Bell Canada, a few movies in Montreal and Ottawa, and several videos for local production companies. I've also sung in the chorus of Opera Lyra in "Tales of Hoffmann" and "Romeo and Juliette" and the Diva Series with the NACO and Haley Westerna. Also been enjoying in-studio voice directing for an intranet project. Now in my new "new life" after spending time in lovely Halifax where I conducted two voice-over workshops through Actra Maritimes, here I am back in amazing Montreal, working through Mensour Agency (recently voiced radio and TV spots for CRA) and am writing songs for an indie album..yes another Canadian female singer/songwriter..love words, music, the studio, opportunities,challenges..work!
