Narrator Update – Kitty Hendrix
Happy Holidays Everyone!
Thank you April for inviting me to post an update! This has been a “re-set “ year for me. They say New York City will be a great place to live if they would only finish it and at the start of 2015 I found myself to be a NYC home based narrator in the middle of a massive “urban renewal” project with estimated completion dates sometime in 2018! Long form narration projects becoming impossible (working fromwith no chance for daytime sleep) I was forced to abandon my beloved audiobooks for short form narration (voice over projects) for most of the year.
The very best of these projects was ‘Late Bloomers”,an IVR (interactive) art installation by French artist Camille Henrot for the 13th Biennial Celebration for the Lyon (France) Museum of Contemporary Art. I also was the “Voice of God” (a hollywood term..think of the disembodied voice you hear to announce the presenters at the Academy Awards) in Washington DC for “Vietnam: The Power of Protest.” conference introducing Phil Donahue, Peter Yarrow, Julian Bond and Danny Glover and others.
I released two audiobooks in 2015. Both are first person (well.. OK ..one is a cat) biographical narratives. Callie The Calico Kitty by LaVonna Moore:
Kids/Callie-the-Calico-Kitty- Audiobook/B00T548UHW/ref=a_ search_c4_1_6_srTtl?qid= 1450986347&sr=1-6
is my first children’s title. I found it fascinating that my Shiba Inu, Reiki, who is generally very blasé about my audiobook voices would come to listen to my QC every night. He loved the cat voice!
My second title, The Art of The Theatre by Sarah Bernhardt
Bios-Memoirs/The-Art-of-the- Theatre-Audiobook/B00YB3UMZ0/ ref=a_search_c4_1_8_srTtl?qid= 1450986213&sr=1-8
is my favorite audiobook so far. This is a remarkable, long out of print, book that is the only existing record of Sarah Bernhardt’s acting technique written by her. Many of the points she makes were followed by her own examples so I actually had to channel Sarah Bernhardt and BE this great actress. It was a fantastic experience! This was also the first book I have produced myself and I was grateful to be given the opportunity to publish it through Audiobooks by Mike Vendetti and Steven Jay Cohen with Listen2aBook. I plan to do many more titles with them and explore more projects I can produce myself.
Lately I have been polishing my interior design skills. We bought a big old house in the Catskill mountains in New York in August. Yes! There will be peace and quiet! I have been busy renovating and my life has been looking a lot more HGTV than Audible. My new studio will be up and running by February! I am excited to be heading back to the booth then and my first project will be Flappers and Philosophers by F Scott Fitzgerald which will release in early March.
