2015, Cor What a Year!
Its been a while since my last post and in truth, it’s been a busy year. The year kicked off with me voicing the character Trine in the video game Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power. When I got to the studio I was told that this was the first time in the game that Trine speaks so it was a honour to give her/him/it a voice!
January also saw me playing Sally in Link Publishing’s Penguin Night. Filmed in Bristol in a sign factory, this comedy short was made for a print and signage industry trade show. Draping myself over a wide format printer whilst filming a romantic dream sequence was definitely one of my amusing career moments to date!
From January to May I also voiced various characters in the epic video game Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition. It was an absolute pleasure working with voice director Alex Otterlei and sound engineer and voice director Josh Weeden, with his wide vocabulary; handy to have when voicing some of the more verbose characters in the world of Divinity’s Rivellon.
In June I also had the pleasure of playing the Third Witch in the Restoration play William Davenant’s Macbeth for the National Maritime Museum’s exhibition Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution. Adopting the wonderful movement style of the period, our silhouettes were filmed on green screen and are now projected in a Restoration Theatre audio-visual environment constructed within the exhibition.
In November I also recorded the audio book, Cilla 1943-2015 by Douglas Thompson with the wonderful folk at Rushforth Media. I now know all is there is know about Blind Date!
