Wow! Est-ce vrai?! Over 60 dialects! I can't even name that many dialects. You are wonderfully gifted, and I'm sure you've worked hard and must be super-organised to have done all that. You are a true master, and an inspiration to me. Merci!
Just a note to say Hi - we worked together on "The Kingdom" (with Caitlin) and I see your name on all my e-mails from Michael Bell. Hope you're well and that we will work together again soon.
Your are one the MASTERS of the art! Few have you range, and I can't say I've encountered anyone who can do as many dialects! I've sent MANY to your site to study how 'voice acting' is done! What acting techniques have you studied?
