I’m thrilled and a bit scared to see that a documentary on cartoon voice actors is in production.
Thrilled, because I know a few of the people in the film personally – one of whom was actually my agent way back in the 80’s before she moved to Hanna-Barbara – Andrea Romano.
Scared because it is more exposure to the business of voice acting – which will probably inspire more and more people to give up their day jobs to try to become a voiceover actor. So they will seek out advice – many asking far too many questions that will point out that they have nary a clue how to use Google to find the basic answers so that they can craft answerable questions.
I have included both trailers. The first one embedded here is lots of fun – but look just below for the other trailer. If you are one of those who have always made your friends laugh with your impersonations of cartoon characters – really listen to what the actors are saying in that first trailer. It isn’t about silly voices.
