Hollywood Hustle HabitsWho knows you, baby?

In this segment from my Hollywood Hustle Habits program, I discuss why it’s essential for people to know who you are, and to have a positive impression of you. I explain that not all “knowing” is created equal — there are people in your life who are active and alive in your mind, and others who have been relegated to the back storage room of memory: (3 minutes)

I play the voice of Edna Mode (cantankerous fashion designer to the superheroes from The Incredibles) in the just-released video game Disney Infinity.

Listen to a short clip:

The game is a mashup of many of the Disney/Pixar movie characters from recent years: Cars, Toy Story, Monsters Inc., etc.

In the section featuring The Incredibles, Edna pops up continuously to berate the player — er, I mean to offer helpful suggestions & advice!

Edna was voiced in the original movie by its director, Brad Bird. Some time after the film was released, I voiced Edna in a Disney on Ice show starring The Incredibles.

Disney Infinity is a very fun, imaginative game, and it’s getting a lot of great feedback and reviews. I’m honored to be a part of it.

When I went in for the […]

How to Make Sure People “Have Time” For You & Your VO Demo

February 6, 2013

You’ve probably seen the viral video of the woman who was interviewed after a small fire broke out in her apartment building. She uttered a line which has become famous: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” In our business, nobody has time for weak, lousy, unprofessional-sounding VO demos. Put yourself in the shoes of an […]

Does Your VO Demo Have That “Not So Fresh Feeling”?

January 29, 2013
