Worked my first session yesterday on a new Disney project, and had a blast! There are a lot of characters involved with many different accents from around the world. My two main characters are Dutch and French Canadian. Fortunately, I don’t need to speak the language, I just have to speak with an accurate accent. These main characters are traveling to different countries around the world, so we need to know all those accents as well. It’s a brain blender, all right! Our sanity saver is Joel Goldes,
our amazing dialect coach. He is keeping us on the straight and (authentically accented) narrow. I love working with Kelly Ward, our voice director. He keeps us true to the story while Joel keep us true to the accents. I’m working with a great group. It’s a series so I’ll share more as we go along. Au revoir!
