While in Los Angeles last month on a VERY COOL Disney/DreamWorks blogger junket, I got to do something that is nothing short of amazing. After seeing an advance screening of the new Winnie the Pooh movie and meeting the directors and voices, I had a chance to do something that few will ever experience. I actually got to go into a Walt Disney Animation Studios voice recording booth and record a scene from the movie, with my voice as Piglet. How cool is that??? It was DEFINITELY one of the coolest things that I’ve ever done. I mean, REALLY? How many folks can say that they have a clip of a Disney movie with their own voice in it?
We were taken from lunch down in small groups. Once inside the studio, the directions were explained by Peter del Vecho, who produced the movie. Of course, I thought that I was ALL OVER IT and volunteered to be first. However, once I put on the headphones, I got wayyy nervous. Talk about pressure? Doing a voiceover under the director of the actual Disney Producer? I was sweating bullets! Somehow I stumbled and stammered through it, all the while clutching a stuffed Piglet for dear life. Here’s the video…and DON’T LAUGH!!
By the way, Winnie the Pooh starts tomorrow and I HIGHLY recommend it for those wee members of the family. I thought it was cute and the music kept me humming all day afterwards! Tell me how you liked it!
Disclosure: My trip to Los Angeles was part of a blogger junket sponsored by Walt Disney Films and DreamWorks Studios. They covered my travel, lodging and meals.
