Voiceover magic

I spent a few hours this morning doing voiceover work for two short films. One was for a movie I shot last weekend (where I played a girlfriend who goes into rages when provoked- it’s a comedy, of course.) I needed to record some offscreen screaming, and rather than doing that on the set we decided to do it in a recording booth. I did a bit of improv-ing, shouting and punctuating my words to make it sound like I was in the middle of throwing things. I even got to shout a karate chop sound, “Hy-yah!” Very fun- the director and I giggled a lot.

Another filmmaker who is a part of the same program asked me to do some voiceover for her film as well. She was running sound for the first film, and while she was listening to my voice through the headphones the whole weekend, she decided that my voice would be perfect for her project. It is so nice to be asked to do things instead of having to audition! Apparently, she had held auditions but couldn’t find what she was looking for. I left feeling a bit a-glow.

Both of these short films are getting a screening, along with nearly a dozen others, on May 9 in Manhattan. If you would like to know where the screening will be held, leave me a comment and I will send you the info via email. Or, if I don't already have your email address, email me and I will send you the info.

  1. I love VO work. There's something about a job that you can do in your pajamas that is so appealing!

  2. I might be in Maine taking care of my grandmother next week, but if I'm not, I'd love to come see them.

    You know the addy! ;)
