Hey, I know that voice! Celebrities and Animation Voice-Over
It takes a lot of time, effort and practice to transform into a Grade A vocal talent. To those starting out, you’re just learning the basics and beginning to provide your services to gain experience. To those who have been in the industry for years,you know all the tricks of the trade and the amount of hard work it takes to be a quality talent.
But what about our celebrities who provide their voices and star in movies as animated characters? We thought it would be interesting to check out how famous people (who sometimes have little or no experience in the voice over industry) coped with suddenly taking on a voice acting role. Some examples include Taylor Swift in The Lorax, Ellen DeGeneres in Finding Nemo and Nicki Minaj in Ice Age 4. After serious web surfing we found some interesting videos and articles of celebrities (professional actors and other) giving an insight of their experiences in animation voice acting. Grab some popcorn and check it out!
