A Voice in the Wilderness

Sometimes, You Get to Play One of Your Personal Heroes.
A Line in the Sand, an animated film featuring quotes from beloved and irreverent environmentalist Edward Abbey, was produced and directed by Justin Clifton for Our Canyonlands and the Grand Canyon Trust in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Wilderness Act by President Lyndon Johnson. In the film, I represent the voice of the late Edward Abbey whose works helped formulate my own environmental perspectivesThe film, which draws attention to imminent threats to the fragile beauty of public lands in the Canyonlands of Utah, the Colorado Plateau and the Desert Southwest as well as the elemental place of wilderness in the American psyche, personifies the kind of work on which I focus my talents.

(Edward Abbey was noted for his advocacy of environmental issues, criticism of public land policies, and anarchist political views. His best-known works include the novels The Monkey Wrench Gang and Heyduke Lives, which have been cited as inspiration by radical environmental groups, and the non-fiction work Desert Solitaire.)

Credits: My audition for the role came through my dear friend and voice talent agent Carol Rathe of Go Voices in Denver. The audition was recorded by Anthony Stubelek of Rock Studio Recording and Mastering in Brunswick, Georgia, and the final recording session took place at PRC Digital Media in Jacksonville, Florida, Chris Linke recording engineer. The session was remotely directed from Flagstaff, Arizona by the film's producer/director, Justin Clifton, and co-director, Chris Cresci.

The MED - "Baby" - 30-Second TV Voice Over

There's a link in the right-hand side bar to my Vimeo and YouTube channels, but this one deserves some attention. This commercial is for The MED (Regional Medical Center) of Memphis and is one element of a three-part campaign.

I especially like that, even though it was not part of the original project, the producer wanted to try to keep my voice for the sake of continuity, so he requested that I retain the gravely quality of my delivery, but with a warmer, more gentle approach. This was the result.

It's always a pleasure to be part of excellent production, and these spots produced by Peter Zavadil of Taillight TV are exquisite. My thanks to Peter for his excellent direction, to Anthony Stubelek of Rock Studio in Brunswick, Georgia for his thoughtful expertise in recording the voice overs, and to my good friend and agent Carol Rathe of Go Voices in Denver.

If it's true that "you're only as good as your most recent work," then I'm kind of proud of this and the other spots for The MED, but I'm always up for the next opportunity.
