The Friday Round-Up (from Animation to Second Happiest Place on Earth)Claude Harrington 08.12.2016
If for some reason your alarm failed to go off on Monday morning, and you accidentally slept through this entire week, then here’s a round-up of some things you might have missed:
FROM THE VAULT: Voiceover Tips from Porky Pig
Meet Bob Bergen, aka “Porky Pig,” “Luke Skywalker,” and “Marvin the Martian.”
Bob is a professional voiceover actor.
For the past 30 years he’s honed his skills with legends like Daws Butler (Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound) and June Foray (“Rocky” from Rocky and Bullwinkle), while making appearances in top-grossing films such as Wreck-It Ralph, Wall-E, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., and Robot Chicken: Star Wars, not to mention a host of commercial work.
He’s received two Primetime Emmy nods and an Annie nomination, and as a veteran working voiceover actor he teaches the ins and outs of this oft-misunderstood craft to the next generation of upcoming voice actors in LA. He was kind enough to chat about his experience and share his wisdom about the rapidly changing voiceover industry with us that we’ll feature in a three-part suite about voiceover acting.
