Disney is just magical. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. From movies, theme parks, merchandise, to every Press trip I’ve been on. Disney goes above and beyond in all aspects. Remember back in July when I did and ADR Voice Session as Piglet? Piglet sure sounded southern! That was the absolute coolest thing I’ve ever done and has been a special memory in my mind ever since. When it was told to us that on the #DisneyMoviesEvent we were doing something similar I was keeping my husband up at night watching and re-watching my Piglet Voice. I decided I was going all in and try not to do so much Southern. I was going to “act.”
Oh! I learned what ADR stands for: Automated Dialog Replacement, (also referred to as “Looping”): The replacement of dialog in post-production of a film or video.
Well it was a good idea at the time, but let me tell you when you walk in that booth you start sweating. There’s a slight buzz in your ear. Then you put on the headphones and look through the glass and see your friends and fellow bloggers watching you. Acting went out the window. My goal was to not pass out. To do the line and not faint. (Which was harder than it sounds) So they played the clip. Then it was my turn. I took a deep breath and let my inner spoiled brat out. Wah-la. It was done. I went back and watched it with every one and I’m proud to say that I sound pretty bratty. 🙂 If you ever get the chance to do something like this DO IT! I can mark it off my bucket list!
A huge thank you to Marshall Weinbaum, Storyboard artist/voice of Gene/voice of Zombie Raymond Persi, and recording booth technician Gabe Guy for all the help and bringing my Vanellope to life.
