I Become A Tiny Speck In The Star Wars Galaxy!

11 Aug

     I’ve been a die-hard Star Wars fan since well before that June 1977 story in Time Magazine put the rest of the world on alert as to what was coming.

     So you can imagine the thrill I got at becoming even a small part of that much larger world. 

     The people at Lego have created a new online gameIntro Screen Image for Online Clone Wars game using the characters from the Clone Wars animated series.  To promote it, they’re producing a “mini-movie” about “The Quest for R2D2” which will run on their website (and possibly on Cartoon Network).   I auditioned for / and was cast as the sound-alike for the series’ dramatic narrator. 

     With just a few short lines, I’ve now secured a place (albeit a tiny one) in the Star Wars universe!  It’s fulfilled another seemingly impossible ambition of mine…and greatly enhanced my standing with my 11-year-old son and his buddies!

      My thanks to TapeWorks for recommending me, and to my friend Wendy Zier for introducing me to Doug and the studio.   A link to the finished video will be provided once the project is completed.
