Quote of the Day
Definitely in voice-over, you have to be completely uninhibited. More than that, you have to put yourself back into the enjoyment of pretending.
And in a world without heroes, as the movie trailer voice-over guy might say, the slightly awkward can be slightly cool.
I remember seeing 'Aladdin' when I was five or six and loving it. I looked at the big screen and said to my mum, 'Whatever this Genie guy does, I want to do.' Mum said I couldn't be a genie, but that Robin Williams, who did the voice-over in the film, was an actor. So I said, 'OK, then, I want to be an actor.'
With voice-over, you have to pretend like you're three, except you can talk and read.
I had never really done voice-over. If you've ever seen me, I'm more the communicator through body language and movement... I'm a physical actor.
I went from buying my own condominium and a car for myself when I was 17 on 'The Facts of Life' to not being able to pay my rent. I was at the unemployment office all the time. I had to sell my record collection just to make ends meet. And then I started getting these voice-over jobs.
Unlike other voice-over situations which are done in a recording studio, Roger Rabbit was live action and animation combined, and there was a time factor, so my voice was recorded live on the set. So I'm on the set rehearsing and recording my voice as a performance with the other actors, and they're all wearing costumes, and it made sense to me.
I just want to get into the action. And voice-over work is all action.
I like voice-over in films, and most of my films have been voice-over films.
Whenever you do an animated project or a voice-over project it's inevitable that part of your personality comes into play.
The cool thing about doing a voice-over into a different language is that you get to bring the character of your own culture into it.
I love doing voice-over. It's so fun.
I know now that I want to do more voice-over projects. They really have the ability to transport you into the world of whatever movie it is you are working on.
The beauty of voice-over work is that maybe you come in and record once every two weeks for a couple of hours and do a couple episodes a session. It's awesome! You spend an afternoon playing in the booth, and there you have it. It doesn't interfere with much.
Really, voice-over is great. If it paid as much as on camera work, it's all I'd ever do.
I don't like the term 'voice-over.'
I haven't done much voice-over work, but I enjoy it. I'm hoping to do more in the future.
I was always talking in weird voices from the time I was two. I guess I just found a way to keep doing it! I did get a degree in theater and took some voice-over classes... but most of it is just the same stuff I was doing as a kid!
Live-action has always been my focus and my passion. I love voice-over, and I definitely could see myself doing some voice-over, as much as I could, and even if I ended up doing only that for the rest of my life, and I could be successful at it, that would be great. But I think my real dream is to do films and live-action films.
It really depends, but, generally speaking, just because of the mechanics of it, voice-over is easier because there is no hair, no makeup, no wardrobe, no fittings, no line memorizing. You don't have to me woken up in Russia at 6 in the morning and go film a scene. It's just easier on the body, the family life to do voice-overs.
Doing voice-over work is something that I love to do, and it is a lot of fun at the same time.
I love doing voice-over. It's one of my favorite things.
I did my acting performance in 'Roger Rabbit.' I think I did a voice-over also in 'Osmosis Jones' and I directed an episode of my show years ago, 'Tales from the Crypt' and that's my endeavors in the non-producer oriented ranks.
Although there was a screenplay, the actors never knew what questions I was going to ask them, and all of my character's voice-over narration and scenes were added after the fact.
I was going to be the next big voice-over thing, of course, in my mind. I didn't.
