A new documentary film from Record Farm Industries, in association with Dundee Entertainment, LCC. and Cinovative, delves into the mysterious lives of the actors behind some of pop-culture’s most celebrated characters in “I Know That Voice,” set to release in the Fall of 2013.
In it’s final stages of post-production, animation fans have been given a tantalizing glimpse of what they can expect with the official video trailer – which is creating quite the buzz. In less than three weeks the video has received over 700,000 views and over 800+ VIP email sign ups at the website. Every 100th person to sign up on the VIP email list will win a free signed poster from John Di Maggio, the voice actor behind “Bender” in Futurama, “Jake the Dog” in Adventure Time, “Rico” in The Penguins of Madagascar and “Fung” in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.
“There is a fascination with hearing your favorite cartoon’s voice coming out of a live human,” says Di Maggio. “This documentary opens the doors into the lives of some of the greatest unsung heroes behind these animations that people of all ages have come to love.”
The documentary takes a positive, humorous, and entertaining look at the lives and experiences of Matt Groening (The Simpsons), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Family Guy), Billy West (Futurama, The Ren & Stimpy Show), Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls, My Little Pony), Jim Cummings (Winnie the Pooh), and more than 100 other talented voice-over actors from cartoons that have transcended the ages.
“I think this will be one of the most entertaining and educational documentaries ever made,” producer Tommy Reid said. “Whether you watched cartoons as a kid, as a parent, or are avid comic book fans or fans of animated series of today, like The Simpsons, this documentary is going to be addictive—you won’t be able to get enough of it.”
