TOPIC

I want to know how to "do" Donald. I am an aspiring computer animator with ambitions to further the computerized 2D animation field. I'm trying to create some of the unproduced animation from the Disney that Never was book, and if I learned how to do that voice, I'd be so much better off (oh, except for Joe Carioca and Panchito). But I think they're real easy, not like the Donald voice, which I've been trying like **** to master for my 20 years on this earth.

HELP!!!

BJ

I saw Tom Cruise do a reasonable impression of Donald Duck on 'Inside the Actors' Studio', so if that's ever repeated that might be helpful. If you watch people do it, it might help. I think it's really all down to the throat. And practice of course.

Hiya - stepping in late here, I know. Smile I've been trying to figure out the Donald Duck voice too.

What I've discovered is that it's something called a "buccal voice": making sound by sending air between the back teeth and the cheek, and forming sounds from it via tongue placement. I don't believe it's 'voiced' at all with the larynx. If you do a Google search on "donald duck buccal" you may find some more helpful information about it.

Myself, I can make the basic buccal sound, but I don't have any control over it; my attempts to form words sound more like I'm choking on something.
