Remember that time I told you that I had a private art lesson with the story artists at Disneytoon Studios and drew Dipper, one of the characters from the new Disney’s Planes Fire and Rescue animated movie? Well…there’s a little more to that story and today I get to share some more of it with you!
As if drawing a Disney character under the guidance of real life Disney Story Artists isn’t awesome enough, I also got to work with Disney casting director, Jason Henkel, and sound engineer, Paul McGrath…and I did a voice over of Dipper!! I know, super exciting, right?
I nearly peed my pants, I was so nervous! I put on a brave face and walked into the recording studio, where Julie Bowen – who plays Dipper in the movie – did her parts.
It was super official, y’all. I’m basically a movie star now.
We each had a few lines from the movie to act out, well, vocalize, anyway. We listened to the part a few times and then were given a sheet with the lines on it.
It’s the part of the movie where Dipper and Dusty meet for the first time. Julie Bowen is such a great actor for Dipper’s role, I swear it was like it was made for her! I knew there was no way that I could fill her shoes, but I gave it my best shot!
I was terrified, I mean, I really, really hate the sound of my voice, but I did it…
And apparently, I purr like a little kitty cat.
I guess there could be worse things said about me, right?
At least I was having a great hair day.
What do you think? Did I do a good job?
If you think so, believe me, it wasn’t my doing! The sound engineers at Disneytoon Studios are seriously legit, guys. I swear that they worked some magic on my recording because I don’t recall sounding quite so adorable!
