Gretsky The Great

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/gGN6KorQ68w” frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; encrypted-media” allowfullscreen></iframe>

Comedian, social commentator, alligator potato, chocolate lover, chimpanzee shaver, acrobat and tightrope walker. Out of these Gretel Killeen is the first two and maybe more.

I worked with her on Big Brother when we were hosts and I have been lucky enough to be friends with her sort of. Gretel has friends and then gets new ones then comes back to the old ones and I’m an old one who is lucky enough to have her back for some fun with a microphone. Shes a crazy cat she is. That sounds rude, but its not because how much fun can you really have with a microphone? Tell a joke, sing into it, do impersonations. Ok, now Im just waffling.

She’s funny, talented and hosted more shows Disney. Are you reading this? You know its a video and you can watch it. Please enjoy! And if you do its free you know, so give it a share.

Mike 🙂

Ok this is pretty self indulgent, but hey I have to let people know I’m back on the mike in voiceover land somehow.
I just recorded a new demo with my good buddies, Sydney voiceover legend Ric Herbert and Sydney audio engineer, super guru, Peter fast fingers McCorquodale from Crocodile studios at Rozelle in Sydney. I have been barking at the stick in the padded cell (voiceover booth) since I was a kid and just when I thought I knew everything, I learnt something new from some clever old dogs. Actually that is a shit analogy but you know what I mean. I get people e mailing me about VO work every week asking for advice and my advice is pay the money and get a coach, work with experienced people, always look for different angles and styles to change your approach and perspective on a script. Ric Herbert and Peter McCorquodale do amazing work together and I highly recommend them if you’re putting together a new VO demo. This is what they look like, but don’t let that put you off because they are extremely talented, smell quite nice and are very friendly. If you’re reading this thanks again guys!!

Disney buys our show!

WAC, world animal championships.

Great news on the eve of Comicon 2014! WAC, the World Animal Championships, the show that I voiced all these crazy creatures on has been bought by the Walt Disney company UK.

This is a massive win for our show created and written by legendary TV genius Alex Mavroidakis. Alex is also one of the brains behind another show I work on called Big Brother.

WAC is Produced by Blacklab Entertainment Brisbane has been a smash hit on ABC kids Australia.

The show puts animals against each other to find the loudest, smelliest, strongest, funniest, weirdest animals in the world.

I think I ended up doing about 50 different voices for the show that is now going to be seen on UK Disney.

I have to do a special shout out to superstar producer Vanessa Oxlad who was one of the shows producers that pushed for me to do all the voices with Angela Walsh another Brisbane voice artist/movie producer.

Of course well done has to go to Tim McGahan, Nick Hopkin and the team at Black Lab, Alex Mavroidikis for creating such an awesome show and the legend animators, producers and editors at Cutting Edge Brisbane.

Looking forward to another 52 episodes!!

See you at COMIC CON San Diego diego tomorrow.

Dangerous Voiceovers

seconds before the spill
Seconds before the voiceover booth stack
Parking my car next to all the new rides at Dreamworld as I walk into the maximum security TV production section of the theme park that is Channel 9s Big Brother, it all seems surreal. After three short years you notice real change : the new house, amazing sets,the high tech cameras and microphones, the tricky lights, a staff tea room cookie upgrade instead of plain milk arrowroot theres an assortment, the instantaneous involvement of twitter and facebook on every show, reading voiceover scripts from producers iPhones and pads rather than scraps of paper, the bigger buckets of fairy floss now available at the Big Brother canteen, how my dressing room used to be the disabled toilet and now i share with the cameraman change rooms (upgrade?).

I did it all for the Cookie
Fans are back and with the odd loveable looney. Launch shows, sunday evictions and nominations are a blast for me as I still get to host the pre show entertainment(better than saying crowd warm up) . They love the shuffle dance, too hard for me, I couldn’t shuffle a deck of cards. Tonight its Layla, Estelle or Sharne. Fun times indeed. But its not rosy all the time…….
There has already been an accident in the Big Brother voiceover department this year. Was in my booth the other day, about to read a script about Bradley pumping iron in the gym and my chair broke. I hit the ground hard, it sounded great on playback, but it did hurt a little. Was it Karma for reading a funny voiceover, was it big brother playing prank on me? Perhaps. Below is a reenactment so you can get a feel for how much pain was caused when I hit the deck. Notice however that my scripts were not crumpled in any way, which I believe a testament to my script protection skills.
