Frequently Asked Questions

Do you hire voiceover artists?

Not directly but my go to music producer, Ben Haynes of Haynes Music Productions, handles all voiceovers for my animation projects.

He has a voiceover artist library that I share with animation clients to select an artist from.

So if you’re interested in being added to the sample list we send to clients, please contact Ben. He’s a great guy!

Do you offer work experience placements or internships?

Sorry, we don’t have the time or the facilities to offer work experience. I usually recommend that students find a larger organisation with multiple employees. Or offer to volunteer creative skills to a local charity. My first professional design experience was at my local RSPCA where I coordinated and designed their quarterly newsletter. That experience on my CV then led to me being hired for a paid summer temp job as a junior graphic designer.

I’m happy to have students pop by my office for a chat about animation and careers in the industry.  If you’d like to arrange a time to visit and have a chat, feel free to email me.

How do you pronounce your name?

"Mair" is a Welsh form of Mary and it's pronounced "My - ah". My Grandpa was Welsh and my family has a lot of Celtic named members. We often joke that our family gatherings sound like a Lord of the Rings council meeting.

I set up my business as Mair Perkins but then I married my wonderful partner, Callum, and wanted to adopt his surname. For simplicity and consistency I still lead my professional life as Mair Perkins. Feel free to call me by Perkins or Bain.

How many cats do you have?

My husband, Callum, and I live with five cats! Their names are Leela, Mendi, Bandon, Smokey and Coco. Here's a drawing of us with some of our cats. They're all adopted from our local RSPCA or were strays that couldn't be homed.
