The Marc Davis Celebration of Animation:
Voices of Character
Winnie the Pooh, Minnie Mouse, Dug the Dog, Natasha Fatale and more!!
Featuring voice artists Jim Cummings, June Foray, Yuri Lowenthal and Russi Taylor; animation director Bob Peterson and animator James Baxter; casting executive Rick Dempsey
Hosted by animation historian Charles Solomon
While animators have been called “actors with pencils” who toil vigorously to create the “illusion of life,” animated characters equally depend on the unique talents of voice artists to breathe life into their visual components. Vocal range and consistency, comic timing, emotional impact, character definition and song styling are just a few of the very specific choices that can make or break a coordinated effort between picture and sound. Our panel of experts will discuss how they approach their work, what they admire in the work of others, and perhaps even “sound off” on why their work isn’t nearly as appreciated as it should be.
