This Month: Voice Acting And Music & Sound...
This month we are taking a look at the sound that accompanies the art
of animation. Michael Lyons talks with two-time Academy award winning
duo, the Sherman Brothers, who are responsible for the songs and
music in such classics as Mary Poppins. Andrew Osmond profiles Joe
Hisaishi, the man who has scored all six of Hayao Miyazaki's major
films, including "Princess Mononoke." We also meet the team behind
the music and songs for DreamWorks' "The Road to El Dorado" and learn
how they brought their experience to animation and married it to the
moving image. Voice-over legend Frank Welker is interviewed, and
Laura Schiff discusses with the experts what to look for in a
voice-acting workshop. You are going to want to read this before

profiles, Lee Dannacher gives us the inside scoop on Shockwave and
their high profile deals. Jacquie Kubin kicks off her monthly gaming
column with an interview with David Kirk, whose world of "Miss
Spider" is coming to CD-Rom. Plus, Glenn Vilppu is back with another
instructional installment and much, much more...
