Zootopia is now available on Bluray!!!
Last month I had the opportunity to visit the Disneytoons Studios for the Zootopia in home release event.
It was amazing to be were all the magic happens. We got to step in inside the sound studio and speak with Paul McGrath, a Dialogue Mixer for Disney Animation Studios. He is known for his work on Doubt (2008), Zootopia (2016) and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (2006).
What is a dialogue mixer? The dialogue mixer is a type of sound editor who assembles, synchronizes, and edits all the dialogue in a film or television production.
Paul McGrath was so kind to all of us. He discussed how the actors would go into the sound studio and read their lines…and I was about to step into the room where so many amazing stars have recorded their voice!
This was a first for me…and it looked easy…but I was mistaken. Paul took me into the sound booth and let me put on the earphones. When I spoke I could hear my voice had been changed into Mr. Big (all the other bloggers in my group chose to do Fru Fru, Mr. Big’s daughter…I like to be different, so I challenged myself). It was squeaky and didn’t sound like me! All of the bloggers had a good laugh at hearing our voices. It was a blast!
He played the clip so I could get a feel for the pace. Then it was my turn to read the lines.
I’d love to say I nailed it on the first take, but I am not an actress. I needed to read the lines several times to get it right. This is a memory that will last a life-time. Not everyone can say they have been a voice for a Disney animated character!
Check out my voice over debut…
