Stepping into a recording booth at Disney Animation Studios is a pretty surreal experience. I mean, this room is where all the magic comes from and to be able to become a voice actor, if for only 2 minutes, is pretty amazing. Last year I did a voice-over for Disney when I voiced a short clip with Dipper from Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue. But this time I was super excited because I got the chance to voice Baymax from Big Hero 6.
When I first heard I would be voicing Baymax from Big Hero 6 I was a little nervous because I am a little rusty when it comes to my robot voice. But I didn’t have anything to worry about because the recording geniuses from Disney where able to make everyone’s voice sound robotic without even trying. The funny thing about recording in a sound booth is that everyone can hear you but you can’t hear them and it can be pretty nerve wracking having a room full of people listening to you. At least for me anyway. But it’s fun and you have to let loose and just do your best. It’s not everyday that you get to step inside a Disney recording Booth.
The headphones that I was wearing allow you to hear the producer who is playing the video for you and recording. It will also let you know when it’s time for you to start talking. There’s also a big TV screen in front of you that you can follow along, if that helps.
So here’s the finished product:
I was really tickled when I got the video back and was able to show my kids. They thought it was the coolest thing to see their mom’s voice come out of Baymax’s mouth. I think that one will give me cool-mom points for awhile.
