A few posts back I let you know about GEIST, an animated short I worked on that won at the Galway Film Fleadh. Since then it has added a considerable number of accolades to that first one, such as:
And it has now been made available to watch on Vimeo and Youtube.
I'm sharing it here with you because I am pretty damn proud to be a part of something so spectacular and moving and downright scary. I get shivers every time I watch it. It deserves all the awards.
All you need to watch this is a spare ten minutes, a nice cup of tea, and maybe a blanky. Some of it gets pretty hairy.
So I shouldn't have favourites as a voice over but working on animation is the best bit of my job hands down. It's the most active and offers the most creative freedom, plus you get to see yourself in a glorious technicolour cartoon sheath - a dream come true.
I voiced the character of commanding and adventurous #girlboss Amelie for Lux Vide's 'The Extraordinary Adventure of Jules Verne' and loved it.
Here is a clip of the sort of shenanigans we got up to during recording. This scene was actually filmed on location in a cave in Scotland. We were in the water for about three hours, and had rope training classes to accurately recreate the sound of the efforts. It was a miracle none of us caught pneumonia!* You won't believe how we filmed the scenes with Captain Nemo! Talk about taking your foley seriously.
Enjoy the journey to the centre of the earth!
