While some elements of the animated series Bojack Horseman face scrutiny over controversy, the show did pull off some remarkable feats, not the least of which was inserting a very human element into an obviously wacky and outlandish world. The show has a continuous story line that runs serially instead of episodically, which is somewhat uncommon in animation, and to do so effectively the characters had to have a certain human realness to them.
In this article Raphael Bob-Waksberg, creator of the show, talks to Backstage about working with the voice actors in the booth to get believable performances, and then (with the help of the editors) weaving together various takes to bring out authentic sounding dialogue from wild lines (as opposed to ensemble recording). He's also got some wonderful advice for the voice actor on how to approach this challenging type of work.
We hope you enjoy it!
