FMP – Set design and voice recording

Set design

Yesterday I called my dad and asked him to take pictures of the indoor gym of the club because I will try to draw it and make it my set. My idea is to remake the gym and draw it with watercolors. I would also like to have a volleyball net on the set and a few plasticine balls on the floor. As Helen suggested in our last tutorial I researched backdrop animators and designers:


  • Paul Julian – Warner Bros.
  • Barry Kooser – Disney, Worker Studio
  • Brice Mack – Disney
  • Maurice Noble – Warner Bros., MGM Animation
  • Kazuo Oga – Studio Ghibli, Madhouse
  • Walter Peregoy – Disney, Format Films, Hanna-Barbera
  • Tyrus Wong – Disney, Warner Bros
  • Kōji Yamamura – Independent
  • Yale Gracey – Disney

I’ve quickly looked thorough these and saved a few images that inspired me. I might do a sheet with them.

Voice recording

I have now a draft of my script. With that, I started imagining my character’s personality and her potential voice. I wrote a few notes that say her voice has to be:

  • Happy, excited
  • Childish
  • Naive
  • Young and fun

I will be able to edit the voice so I can play with it but I wouldn’t want to go too far from the original.

  1. Maria, who thought or wonder that you would be the one giving voice and animation to our birds and… in English?? This is definitely a key point of success, because emotion and engagement from the viewer, comes exactly from the match between voice-animation-message. Good luck!
