'Q&A with Director Brad Goodchild' -- Round I.
To kick-off the new 'Q&A with Director Brad Goodchild' feature, we will be re-posting the first four questions and answers, as described in a previous announcement this morning.
This first question was originally posted on the TV.com forum on June 11, 2006 and answered by director Brad Goodchild on June 12, 2006. You can read the relevant original posts here. The only changes made to the responses were to fix minor technical errors.
We also ask that you please do not re-post these questions and answers on your own personal website, unless you run the FAQ, director's blog, etc. Thank you.
Q: What was the funniest thing and/or blooper that has happened while working on the show so far?
A: The funniest thing that I think that has happened so far is when we were recording the Walla Sessions for our characters. Each voice actor took turns in the recording booth and did a series of things that we need to insert into the show if they are missing or needed to add without bringing back the actors to record.
It was Doron Bell's turn, he does Odie. While waiting for the tech to get set up Doron went into an ad lib session, doing various voices, singing, rapping and just goofing off. We taped it. It was priceless. We actually tried using some of it but ended up cutting it out. Case in point was in the Sybaris episode when Odie is aiming his squirt gun at the vampire as it is about to attack Theresa. Odie is crouched behind the boulder and said, "What up, nephew?"
This is what caused the vampire to turn and laugh at Odie.
I know it doesn't sound funny, but if you heard it as Odie saying it with an attitude, it was really good, but we took it out as it wasn't in Odie's nature to say that.
