“My Choice” – A Short Poem & Animation About Assisted Suicide

in Animation, Featured Projects, Voice Over

I have voiced some strange and fascinating projects over the years, from the voice of the talking signs for Police forces and hospitals throughout the UK to that of an animatronic wax work fisherman in the Swedish Naval Museum.

This latest project definitely falls into the latter category of ‘fascinating.’

I was initially approached by Kris Clarkin, a very talented young animator, to voice a short poem based on Terry Pratchett’s recent Dimbleby Lecture on the topic of assisted suicide/death.

The brief was for the narrator to sound like a (reasonably) elderly British gentlemen, who is eloquent but not too posh – I was asked to think Patrick Stewart reading Dr. Seuss in the style of a vaudevillian compere!  The style was to be for a fun animation but with a serious message.

I think we hit the spot – see what you think.
