Trailer for Voice Acting Documentary ‘I Know That Voice’ – Putting Faces to Your Favorite Voices

- 04-11-12Film, TV, Videogames Posted by Sarah Moran

I don’t know about you guys, but I like to think of myself as a voice actor aficionado. I’m sure this is due to me watching cartoons for my entire life. Even now, as an “adult”, you’re more likely to catch me watching something animated over live-action. I’ve become really good at spotting a voice actor when I’m watching something and I just KNOW I’ve heard that voice before. Then again, there are some actors whose range is so amazing you wouldn’t believe the variety of voices that come out of their mouths. If you’re like me and seriously dig voice actors and the incredible work they do then have I got a documentary for you.

I Know That Voice is a doc about professional voice acting and it allows us to put a face to those voices we all love. Notable actors in the flick? Billy West, Kevin Conroy, Tara Strong, David Kaye, John Di Maggio, Tom Kenny, June Foray and tons more. Or as you might know them Fry, Batman, Bubbles, Megatron, Bender, Sponge Bob and Rocky the flying squirrel. Check out the trailer,

I think this documentary sounds fascinating, again it could because I’m something of a voice work nutjob, but come on, if I can’t let my nerd flag fly here, where can I? IMDB lists I Know That Voice as releasing in 2013 so hopefully more info will be available soon.

What do you guys think of it? Who are some your favorite voice actors?

He’s been the voice of the Joker since 1992. In Batman: The Animated Series, countless video games and other cartoons, hell even that one live action TV show no one watched, Birds of Prey. After a few times where he cried wolf on quitting the character, it looks like this time his last time might actually be his last time.
