Two Movies You Gotta See On Netflix If You Love Cartoons- I Know That Voice, In A World

If you’re anything like me the world of voice over is fascinating in its mystery.  I know almost nothing about it but I do know that I love cartoons and one of my dreams is being a cartoon.  On top of that I think everyone at some point has been told “you should do cartoons because that’s a really funny voice you do.”   That is one of the most infuriating things to be told because that’s what I would love to do and if it was that easy I would already be doing it.  But thanks to these movies there has been a tiny light shone on this industry so at least if you’re looking to get in you’re not just bumping around in the dark.

In my opinion you should watch “I know that voice” first because it gets you familiar with the business of voice over.  This movie brings out some of the (in my opinion) coolest of the cool in the voice over industry.  The only way it could have been cooler is of Mel Blanc (you know the voice of bugs bunny) himself would have been in it. I Know That Voice takes you thru the process of recording a voice and shows you the hidden art of coming up with a voice. I really thought that part was cool because in real life the voice you have is just the voice you have but when creating a character you have to take into account the type of person they are the things that they like to do and their personality (its too cool finding out how John Dimaggio came up with the voice of Bender from Futurama). 

Once you’ve watched this movie you can now comfortably watch “In A World” because you are no longer in the dark.  This movie follows the lead character struggle in the voice over world as a woman.  The movie takes place in the voice over world but the premise of the movie indicated by the title is the movie makers want to revive the trailer “In a world” voice over thing.  The usual guys throw their hats in the ring for it but now there is this woman that has a shot at it and it infuriates the contenders.  It’s a very interesting view of the voice over world and a very awesome movie.

Have You Heard About This Movie- As Dreamers Do

I’m always on the lookout for a new inspirational movie. When I say inspirational I mean inspirational to me as an artist or businessman.  I’m always on the look out and good movies are few and far between but I ran across another I cant wait to see but seems like its not getting too much exposure.  It’s a little indy movie called As Dreamers Do.

This movie is about the early days of Walt Disney. It seems to be about everything before going to Hollywood.  It shows him in his early days as a kid drawing and dreaming. The movie seems like a really sweet inspiring story and there is nothing I love more than an well done indy movie.  My favorite part of the trailer is when he is sitting at his drawing table feeding a mouse and he says "You know, since we're newly acquainted friends I should probably tell you, ima change the world. It all starts right here."

The trailer in itself is inspiring, I haven’t seen the movie yet but I’m planning on it.  So if you have seen this movie let me know what you thought in the comments.
