Speaking of squirrels, I’ve put a few pics in this post of some squirrels I’ve gotten to play!

In case you missed the other characters, so far we’ve covered:

How to be a VO Princess

How to Be a Big Fat Whiny Fit Throwing Baby!

How to Talk Texan/Cowboy/Hick/Hillbilly/Yeehaw!

Ck out this week’s installment of … Physicality in VO – Part 4 – SQUIRRELS!

Watch the video, but if you’re too lazy, read this:

SQUIRRELS! Get your big buck teeth showing, beady eyes – quick glances around the mic, and talk faster than those medical ad disclaimers. Every once in a while shake out your bushy tail just because it’s fun. Often times I hold my hands together like T-rex arms when I’m doing a squirrel. And nibble your gathered nuts!




Here’s what’s coming in the Physicality & Props in VO Series!

What do you think about the SQUIRREL video? Too much? Talk faster?
