Kerfuffle

May I present a typical craziness that goes on in the vo business. It comes in all forms and formats, but here is today’s typical kerfuffle. Monday night I got an audition for a pretty standard cartoon character, attached to a pretty standard looking drawing of said character. However, the directions from the client said to, “Think out of the box with this role – avoid the obvious.” Okay… So, I took this character to a workshop yesterday and had my fabulous director, direct and guide me with 2 appropriate fun and funny, yet outside the obvious, characters! Just as I was done recording my second character, and everyone in the room was laughing and applauding my choices, (sorry to sound braggy, but it really did feel good), my phone chimed with an email from my agent. The client has decided they want this character to sound like a certain tv actress from the 70’s, attached is a youtube clip. Whaaaaat?!?!?!! After we were done with the head shaking and eye-rolling, I realized the good news is that I still get a shot at the role. Sometimes this can happen after all our hard work is turned in, and they decide to run a new casting session with a new set of people. Very disappointing and frustrating. So, today I feel like I’ve made the callback! I’ll be recording and submitting the producer’s choice.  Although, I think I will attach yesterday’s characters in case they change their minds again. Wish me luck

Comic Con San Diego

For all my friends going to Comic Con this week in San Diego,Captain Action has a panel Thursday, July 24th, from 3:30-4:30 in room 24ABC. I voiced “Lady Action” for the pilot you will be seeing. They will also be announcing the winners of their “Captain Action Custom Figure Contest.” With Tom Tataranowicz, Steven E.  Gordon,  Frank Paur, Marv Wolfman, and Wally Wingert, it should make for a very fun panel.

Ashley (me) finally gets to attend to her fashionista side!  These episodes are so sweet. I have heard through the grapevine, that even though there was a huge layoff at Disney Interactive, this show is not dead in the water. Rosetta Stone loves the series and there still could be another season or more. I sure hope so. It really was a great group of talented people to work with, and the shows are wonderful. No offence to Adult Swim programming, but this I’m not afraid to show my kids or parents.

It’s A Small World Goes to Africa

This is a sweet little episode where we help a baby rhino find her way home. I also voiced the rhino, and trust me there were many more snorfles, snuffs, and raspberries in the recording session. I’m sure the outtake reel is hilarious.  The sounds they picked are adorable and I’m glad I can now add rhino to my reel! 🙂
