TIP TUESDAY! In animation VO, physically acting out the script is not optional (unless u wanna suck). Try this right now. Sit perfectly motionless while running around the house acting like a wild wolverine. Now try doing this yoga pose in total silence while yelling at your 7 kids for waking up the baby.
NOT POSSIBLE. Personally I also like to use props and/or costuming when I do animated characters!
So comeon PEOPLE. You can do better. Let’s physically become the character together today. Last week we looked at How to be a VO Princess! THIS week, we get to learn How to Be a Big Fat Whiny Fit Throwing Baby while recording VO!
Ck out this week’s installment of …Physicality & Props in VO – Part 2 – BABIES!
Watch the video, but if you’re too lazy, read this:
BABY EXAMPLE! If you are voicing a baby, hunch over to make yourself smaller, scrunch up your face, pout out your lip, throw a fit with your hands, or have your thumb ready to suck at a moment’s notice. You’ll have to watch the video to hear my prop/costuming tips.
