Edinburgh and Lilly


I have just returned from a two day trip up to Edinburgh to see my friend Nicole and record some voices for her graduation film. It was my first visit to Edinburgh and I had such a lovely time! The city was so beautiful and it was great to see some friends after such a long time of being hidden away working in my room. We only had one full day together but we made the most of it!! We started with voice recording and then heading into town to walk up Arthur's Seat. A walk that I didn't think I could make considering my current fitness level...

...but Yay! After much huffing and puffing we made it to the top! Pretty embarrassing as there were lots of older people up there who didn't look out of breath at all.

Then after a yummy dinner we decided to go on one of the ghost tours and it was one of the funniest things ever. It was pretty interesting to learn a bit about Edinburgh's history and our guide was extremely good and succeedeed in completely freaking Nicole and me out! o_O

Now I will tell you a little more about Nicole's project. Nicole is studying her MA in Animation at the Edinburgh College of Art and Rachinta and I agreed to do the voices for her graduation film. Below is an image of the lovely little girl I have recorded a voice for. :) She is called Lilly. You can read all about her on Nicole's work in progress blog called Improve Lilly.
Check out the rest of Nicole's work on her website here -->>> nicolevolbeda.com go go go!!


It's back to reality now though and I'm just working on a short film for YouTube of the Little Leap Forward production. I am also going to be involved in the next Horse + Bamboo project but I will tell you all about that another day.
