This year I have started working with some composers who primarily write for short spots on television. It’s been a fun way to get in the studio and record their demos/works in progress. I really love it but they give me hours notice for when they need me. Last week I had no time to get a sitter so the whole Posse headed to the studio.
Thankfully he was in need of some young voices so not one, but both girls got to take their turn in the booth. The girls were really professional and did such an awesome job. I was so proud of them.
Since Lolly is still learning to read, she was singing back lines that were played for her (who am I kidding, I did the same thing!), and one of the lines she kept making the same mistake. When we corrected the mistaken word, she then changed a new word. It was really sweet to see her brain work–she finally got it!
Phoebe totally embraced the acting part of the voice over. The engineer requested that she sing the line as if it was the most exciting potato she had ever laid eyes on, and she delivered. We listened back and were quite satisfied with ourselves.
Afterwards, we mingled in the cozy Union Square Holiday Market eating Sigmund’s pretzels and listening to carolers. It was a great Christmas memory for us.
