Dee Bradley Baker—the voice of Appa and Momo in Avatar the Last Airbender, Perry the Platypus in Phineas and Ferb, and every clone in Star Wars: The Clone Wars—is asked to play his face.
Shall I play your face? Can I play my face? Well, okay, well, I mean, I'm being asked to show how I play my face. I don't know what that means, but I want to. Okay, well, well, boys and girls. I used to like an instrument you can play. You know it. It's just something that you you start messing with the chambers in the pockets in the flesh of the face. You can start with the interior where, of course, you've got your voice, which you guys like that. But you can also use parts of the inside of your voice like a uh like that where you're that's all with an inhale, and you can you can find places to put that. And then you can also modify it. In addition by, uh, you know, you can you can start way up high and in your Sinuses like you, and then you give it a larger resonance by blocking off the column of air by plugging my nose. So instead of a it's a like that. So it's a bigger, more horrifying sound. And then, you know, if you choose, if it's appropriate to the character you can dial in various like you can dial in the U violent as I. Sometimes we'll dial in the U violent hashtag island. Now, you know, in a week or two this will probably be something that's not appropriate anymore. You can't do, but for now, you can do make a to, uh like that. So you've got a whole another thing flapping around in there. That's that's modifying the performance. You can try. You can try this at home. So the same thing works with an inhale. If you want to do like a creature roar or a monster roar, I prefer to do it with an inhale voice because it hurts my voice left to go like that. That actually feels good to me. But so if you want, like a t rex or something like that or you want to even bigger you go, you know you can. Let's see, I'm just taking it over. I'm sorry. Oh God, you ask the gesture to show off. The gesture is going to just go to town so well. Someone was asking about creatures that you voiced before, and I think we just kind of answered. That question was sort of like, well, active demonstration, for instance, with the u P. L. A. With Momo. And that's who they were asking about. Momo. Right? Well, that's done with an inhale. With that, I think we just need to train the camera on you. You're like one of those YouTube videos, just like this is what I look like when I'm doing this thing. Oh, my God, that's the show. No, but And that and then with Perry the platypus. That's an exhale. But it's also using the You feel like boys and girls. It's like so I realize, until just this moment that you boys Perry the Platypus Perry the platypus platypus was the most amount of money for the least amount of work I've ever done. Or whatever we'll do that took about it took about half a minute worth of work for them. They just put it in every single show
