Yesterday, I referenced a new comedy that just opened, In a World... about a young woman who wants to break into the male-dominated world of voiceover announcing for movie trailers. That got me to remember, Ahaarrrr."
This is one of my favorite videos I've ever tracked down. It's a little British film, 13-minutes long, which I came across almost three years ago and have been passing it around since -- mostly to friends of my who do voice-over work, on either side of the microphone. Oh, do they ever empathize with it...
I don't know much about its history or the wonderful creative mind behind it, Jonathan Kydd, who wrote and stars in the short film (as both the voiceover artist and the director!). But it did win the (Mid Ulster) Critics choice at the DIY Festival LA. As it happens, I know very little about that festival -- other than that sentence I just typed.
As the description below says, this is indeed the voice over session from hell.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
