ANIMA INFO 107 - Special


Interview with David Kaye


David Kaye has a very known voice in american anime world: Ranma 1/2 らんま1/2熱闘編 (Soun Tendou), InuYasha 犬夜叉 戦国お伽草紙 (Sesshoumaru), Mobile Suit Gundam Wing 新機動戦記ガンダムW (Treize Kushrenada), Megaman NT Warrior ロックマン エグゼ (ProtoMan), Transformers Armada 超ロボット生命体トランスフォーマー マイクロン伝説 (Megatron) are some voices he did. But besides animes, Mr. Kaye also do narrations, films, audio books (Star Trek: Gateways What Lay Beyond and Star Trek: The Last Roundup), and other animations (X-Men, GI Joe Extreme), that can be seen and/or ears in his official site. We had a conversation with Mr. Kaye about his dubbing works and others. Just check bellow!

Talk a little about you...what's you preferred hobbies, films, etc?
Hmmm..well, there’s some more info on the website www.davidkaye.com, but if I could sum it all up...I love what I do for a living. It’s a lot of fun. I couldn’t dream of doing anything else. I love to ski, play squash and tennis and like to collect antique books and also love fast cars and Brazilian girls!

What animation you most liked to dub?
I’m more of a fan of pre-lay cartoons, which means the animation isn’t drawn yet with other actors in the room. In anime, which consists of dubbing, I never usually see any of the other people in the show. Plus the animation is already drawn, so there’s not a lot of room to ‘play.’ but if I had to choose a favorite I really enjoyed doing Soun Tendo in Ranma 1/2 and Seshomaru in ‘Inuyasha’.

It´s more easy to create a "voice/character" or to make a character who already exists?
One who already exists because you trying to copy someone else’s style. I’d rather come up with something myself.

It's very difficult to dub animes?
It’s like riding a bike. Once you learn it comes easy. If you don’t get the hang of it, you tend not to last long working in Anime. Just need to pay attention to the monitor and fill the lip flaps with the english dialogue on the script. If there’s a run on sentence it can get tricky though.

Do you prefer heroes or villains? Comedies or adventures?
Villains...All the way! Love both Comedies and adventures.

InuYasha is a success in U.S.A.. Could you tell a little on Sesshomaru's character?
He doesn’t say much, but when he speaks it means a lot. He doesn’t get mad very often but when he does...LOOK OUT !!

Have you ever thought about making a live action film with a character you dub?
Sure, if the offer came, I’d be first in line to give it a shot. That’s a great question. I think some anime could work well as live action. But the fans would be very determined to have their say !

Do you like the idea of animes turning into live-actions film?
Yesssss !! Only if the scripts are good. As I said the fans won’t let you get away with garbage.

Do you would make some work again and why!?
I’m asked often to do more Anime but with my other voice over commitments I’m running out of time, although I have a great time working with the folks at Ocean Group. It’s always a ton of fun to work with Karl and Mike.

Do you think you have a handsome, leading voice?
That’s up to you and the fans to decide.

And to finish, could you leave a little message to your fans?
Sure. Thanks for all the emails and tons of support. They make my day and I’m glad some of the stuff I do makes you happy. Do they have Anime conventions in Brazil ? I’ve always wanted to visit South America... Thanks for your great questions. It was an honor.

Special thanks: Mr. Kaye and also Holly Carinci
