Personal Quotes (2)

[From the 'I Know That Voice' DVD]: Uh, to be a good voice director, you uh, do research on a story and you have to know that story you wanna tell, to be able to give direction without line readings like uh "Say it like this, and uh I'm walking through the door." or I mean cause that's not that not my performance anymore, it's the director's performance.
[From 'The Making of A Goofy Movie' TV special]: Basically they wanted a voice much like mine not like uh, a cartoony type voice or a uh, a Goofy type voice, just uh, basically my voice up a little bit inactive and you know, little crack here and there lots more energy.
