The other day, I had the chance to interview Juan Carlos Bagnell— otherwise known as Some Gadget Guy and Some Audio Guy. He’s a freelance voiceover director based in Los Angeles, California, and tech blogger who has been featured in a number of various publications.
In the short time we’ve been acquainted, I’ve learnt a great deal chatting with him about voiceover and about gadgets, and have taken a voiceover coaching session with him. If you’re interested in commercial voiceover and will be in the LA area, check him out. He’s a fun guy with a ton of knowledge. And he makes a mean origami crane.
You can find him—and his words of wisdom—at his sites somegadgetguy.com and someaudioguy.blogspot.com. Thanks again to Juan for having the time to chat with me!
What’s new folks?
I hope everyone enjoyed his or her holiday this past weekend. Mine was spent staycationing with my family at the National Harbor for a night, interviewing a friend for my 1st podcast episode (Yay!!) and having Easter dinner with the rest of our family. And then it was back to work today.
Because of the busy weekend, I had missed AwesomeCon, which was kind of a bummer. I had went for the 1st time last year, and had a lot of fun meeting and chatting with voice actors Billy West and Phil LaMarr. But my best friend, Mansa, had the pleasure to attend this year and had a blast meeting and hanging out with Phil LaMarr, Rob Paulsen, Sean Astin and Cary Elwes.
I’ve been a fan of Cary’s since The Jungle Book so I was happy for him that one of us had the chance to meet and chat with him. Even though he was a douche in the movie—his character—I was smitten with his charming looks and accent. Actually, that’s also how I became a fan of Lena Headey’s. I also wanted to visit India because of that movie. It’s funny the things you remember from your youth =)
I’d really like for him to guest blog here so he can share his experiences firsthand with you guys. Here’s hoping I can sweet-talk him!
For those who have never watched Animaniacs, below is a video of Rob Paulsen—who voices Yakko Warner, Pinky, Dr. Otto von Scratchansniff among others—doing Yakko’s Countries of the World. It’s pretty awesome, enjoy!
