Role Announcement | The Ice Forest (2014)

Role Announcement | The Ice Forest (2014)

Greetings friends! I’m happy to announce yet another film dub, this time for the film “The Ice Forest”. I play a few smaller characters and my first leading role as Pietro. Check out more info on the IMDB page here.

This one has a fun little backstory too, I received the offer when I was overseas at Disneyland Paris with my wife and family. We stopped for some dinner after a long day of standing in lines (the true Disney experience lol) jokes aside, we were waiting for our food, and some ducks started going at it on top of a rock right next to us. (crucial to the story, poor Donald)
Anyway, back to the story, there was a strict deadline which I eagerly agreed to. I mean a lead role in a film dub? Who wouldn’t? I forgot that hours after we arrived back in the U.S. I was off to PAX to work the PQUBE booth for a few days. But no worries! I had my trusty travel recording setup with me, a Scarlet Solo interface, AT4040 Mic, my trusty M1 Macbook, some other bits and bobs and all my fancy plugins. So at 2am, I recorded these lines in an Air BnB belonging to a sweet lil lady. If she heard me, she probably thought it was insane, but that’s ok. As a voice actor, we do what we need to do to get the job done.

As always, any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for listening!

Role Announcement | Vitreus

Role Announcement | Vitreus

Proud to announce I voice the main protagonist in the video game demo of “Vitreus”! He’s unnamed and so far just goes by “MC”, main character – obvs. Sadly this was for a college project so I don’t believe we’ll see more of this guy but man do I love his design. If this game ever resurfaces and turns into something more, I’d be excited and honored to reprise my role. Meanwhile, check out some fantastic concept art and a short snippet of gameplay from their tech demo featuring voice lines from yours truly, the cute little companion voiced by Orion Mickens – @PhantomSauceTV on Twitter and Jay Silverest as the big evil snail.

As always, feel free to ask questions and thanks so much for listening!

BONUS: There’s a scream from my cat (Midna) in the audio.

My Thoughts on “Nobody Wants to Work”

My Thoughts on “Nobody Wants to Work”

I know this is a somewhat controversial topic but I wanted to throw in my thoughts as someone that’s worked the majority of my working years in the service industry. I’m sure everyone reading or listening to this has heard at least 10 million times by now “this place closed early because nobody wants to work anymore, this generation is just lazy and wants handouts blah blah”. Sure, some people ARE lazy and just wanna fuse into the couch, it happens, who really wants to spend their time working anyway?
Some people were taught to “pull yourself up by the bootstraps, be a man” blah blah blah… If this is you, that’s great, I’m glad you stick to your ideals and have fantastic work ethic (really, I mean it). The thing is, I don’t think it’s fair to push this onto others. I’ve never heard it said in a friendly way like “oh man it’d be great if you put in more effort and worked more hours to provide for your family and give back to the community”. It’s always stated as FACT or even a bragging point, “you’re lazy if you don’t work 70+ hours and have no home life”. Thing is, more and more people are coming out and saying “nah, I just want to do my own thing, actually live my life and enjoy my free time”, to that I say, “heck yeah! do your thing, don’t let anyone stop you!”.
RANT OVER, back to my point. My thoughts on why “nobody wants to work”. I worked the majority of my working years in customer service, overall I enjoy working with the public and the work typically isn’t so bad. Keyword here is “TYPICALLY”. When you have a bad customer, it ruins your whole day, week, hell it even sours some people permanently. The majority of rude customers I’ve experienced have never worked in a retail environment, they don’t know the rules, procedures, the corporate end of things. They just see the cashier (you) and assume that you’re the face of the company. That means any issues they have, well that’s your fault. You can’t do the thing they want because of store policy? You’re a piece of garbage and they hope you die. They don’t know how to use the thing they purchased? “well a**hole, it’s broken and it’s your job to replace it, I hope you and your family choke on your dinner”.
This seems extreme right? Well, it is. We wonder why there’s a decline in mental health and why “nobody wants to work” in the service industry. There you have it, taking daily abuse from strangers over things out of your control is not a proper way to live. It’s unfair to the workers, especially when they’re ordered to take it with a smile for a non-live able wage. I’ve had people threaten “I’ll be waiting in the parking lot”, I’ve had people vandalize my car and co-workers cars, break products in my face, threaten to kick my a** over the counter. The list goes on and on.
So if you are one of the many people saying nobody wants to work, THIS is what it’s like. Now, I don’t want to discredit that there are some amazing people out there. I’ve made close friends with some regular customers and when you see them come through that door, it’s a great day. Being nice to people in the service industry goes a long way, a friendly compliment, saying “hey no worries, I know you’re trying” when things are going wrong for the employee, none of this goes unnoticed and makes a big difference in that persons life (no matter how small you think it is).
Thanks for tuning in to my rant. Any questions or comments, drop it down below and I’ll be happy to discuss. Thanks!
