See and Hear Me as Dipper in my Planes: Fire and Rescue Recording Booth Session #FireAndRescueEvent


The moment I walked into the DisneyToons recording studio I braced myself for the nerves that I figured would hit me. I mean, here I am in a professional recording studio getting ready to record MY voice as a Disney character, you would think I’d be sweating bullets! Funny enough, I wasn’t, I wan’t nervous at all but EXCITED! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I was gonna take it by the horns and do my best.


It also helped immensely that Jason Henkel (casting director) and Paul McGrath (sound engineer) were both incredibly welcoming and super funny! They really made us feel at ease and at home, and answered all of the questions we had.


They went into detail just how real actors and actresses would come in and record their parts. Once we learned how it was done, and how they let some actors just “go with the flow” it was easier to picture myself in that little room recording my voice as Dipper.


A few of the girls in my group went into the recording booth first, and little did they know, we could see them on the screen in the studio while they were recording. They had no idea, but we did, and that sort of made me nervous. Jason Henkel and the rest of us had so much fun listening to the girls, and it really put  me at ease seeing just how fun it really was.


Next up, my turn. When you get into the recording booth, you step up to a podium where your script is in front of you, in our case, we were recording the same bit of dialogue that Julie Bowen recorded for Dipper in the movie. We put on a pair of headphones so we could hear Julie say the lines, then we just repeated it into the microphone, sounds so much easier than it is.

Here I am recording the dialogue:


Did you you hear me giggle and growl? That just cracked me up! It was sooo fun, and I am so glad I got the chance to do it. I couldn’t wait to share my recording and video with my kids,  their Mom is a voice-over star, if only for that day.


Take a look at the finished product: (My family loved it and thinks I’m a star now 🙂
