Some jobs are just too much fun to be called jobs!
Recently I had the joy of lending my voice(s) to play a part (or two) in “Bean Wrestle Mania” – a very funny animated story by UK-based producer, Jon Taylor, of Taylormation. Taylormation is an award winning, UK based producer of Bible based animation and puppetry. Your kids will love it.
Jon bills “Bean Wrestle Mania” as, “The David and Goliath story like you’ve never seen it before.” And as a Brit might respond, “Yes, quite so!”
I play the dual role of the over-the-top wrestling Emcee, and the Texas-inspired “Baked Bean.”
One of the coolest parts was how we recorded it. Along with my goofball actor friend Torry Martin, who plays Jelly Bean, we recorded our parts in my home studio, while Skyping with Jon over in Merry Old England! Yes, Jon directed us from “across the pond” in real time. (Boy – good thing he knew how to speak English!) We then sent the sound files to him where he mixed it all together into this hilarious Multi-Bean Salad! It truly is a small world.
Along with Torry, this animation also features my friend and fellow voice actor Gary Moore, as well as a number of British actors, like comedian Tim Vine from BBC’s “Not Going Out.” What a rare treat to act with such a talented bunch – from two different countries!
So here’s the pay-off – Check out Taylormation’s youtube video at:
