Recording Session

With the lyrics nailed down and the storyboards 80% of the way there, we get to do the most fun part of the process: recording! Recording is so great because, unlike animation which takes weeks or months, we start in the morning with nothing and, by the end of the day, we have a polished piece of work.

On Monday, May 12 we were lucky enough to record with the maestro, John Frizzle! As we’d hoped, John crafted an epic track where each verse perfectly mirrored the character’s personality. With the help of Frederik Wiedmann rockin’ the control panels we feel like the music couldn’t have come out better!

Here’s Evan, John, Gregg and Jim once the day’s work was done…

Our MAGNIFICENT voice actors Jim Meskimen and Su Tien Wong! Jim has been our go-to guy for years now and can do just about any voice imaginable. In addition to acting and singing, Su is also a crazy talented animator working up at Pixar this summer…

John has all kinds of crazy equipment at his studio (plus he makes a mean bag of pop corn).  John, Gabriel Mann (the voice of Obama) and Gregg partake of some popped goodness…

  1. Nice to see the people who bring the characters to life with their amazing voice talents. They did an awesome job of nailing the voices, the singing, and the rhythms. Again, another awe inspiring work. Thanks so much for sharing the details.
    Dedicated fan,

  2. I’ve always been a huge fan of the JibJab videos. I think this is one of my most favorites. The music arrangement is absolutely fantastic! Love the visuals.

    Thank you for helping us get through this whole political process!

  3. The voices for the characters is wonderful! You know how to pick ’em! Studio work can be such a lot of fun when others share your enthusiasm! Everyone did a Great Job! You guys should get an award for all your hard work…….the animation, the voice overs, the music, everything! You should get an Emmy, an Oscar,
    A People’s Choice Award, and a Grammy! Every year you guys toil and turn out some of the best work anywhere (bar none!). Pat yourselves on the back for this one (I would if I could).
    Awards All Around!!!!!!!!
