Getting a head
People are always trying to find a way to get ahead in life. I’m really no different. It’s hard to compete in the world of voice over. So I decided in order to get ahead, I literally had to make one!
Okay, I didn’t actually draw this one. Katie Hood, the young animator we brought on to animate “Between Busts”, drew if for me (I’m poor Anne Boleyn)! But let me go back almost 2 years and explain.
Two talented vo ladies, Caley Rose & Angela Marie Volpe and I, were tired of waiting around for auditions. Losing primo jobs to celebrities who’s only purpose on the show was to sell popcorn, go on all the talk shows, and raise ratings. Most other roles are for men, or real kids, and what’s left for us women is slim pickins’. We needed to take the bull by the horns and create something unique. Something for us chicks. Something funny and quirky and perfect for women, enough with the farts and testosterone!
We brought on an amazing writing, Amy Aniobe with quite a resume, and she became our 4th producer. Together we cooked up these 6 little micro episodes in the style of simple black and white animation. We thought it would be fun to mash up all these famous women throughout history and see what happens if we give them typical today conversations. The only caveat was that they had to be dead. Anyone “passed on” was fair game. Thus, our first title was, “Dead Women Say What?!” For various reasons we needed to change the name and happily landed on “Between Busts.”
After recording at Studiopolis, we found our animator at USC and we were in love! All the pieces were coming together. Of course, it wasn’t overnight, but here we are with 3 episodes launched and 3 more on the way!
If you have any questions or comments, please connect here or on our series website, www.betweenbusts.com. We’d love to hear what you have to say. Let me know if you have any famous women you would like to see mashed up in a current conversation.
In the meantime, enjoy our 2-3 minute episodes that make you laugh with famous women from history. Don’t forget to hit “Like” and share! (It will help us go viral and hopefully get us picked up for a second season.) BetweenBustsYouTube or https://www.youtube.com/
