I had some fun today and made a new comical video. It’s an impersonation of Gollum (aka Smeagol) from The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings. I decided to make Gollum sing “Every Breath You Take” by Sting since the lyrical content seemed to perfectly fit Gollum’s obsession with The Ring!
Gollum is by far my favorite character in the movies. Andy Serkis created such an intriguing character with his work! To make a character out of CG as deep and impactful as he did was a monumental task and he absolutely NAIED it! It was fun to dig in and figure out what vocalizations he did to make each sound. This video doesn’t show off the more subtle dialogue effects since it didn’t really fit the material though…
It was fun to be completely ridiculous for a change and not take something so seriously. I hope it makes you laugh a bit and brightens up your day.
Want to learn how to make his voice? Leave a comment here or on Youtube and I’ll put up a lesson on how it’s done 🙂 It’s a ridiculously fun voice to make and gets fun reactions out of people and pets in my experience.
Please share this with friends and people who love The Hobbit, The Lord Of The Rings and Gollum.
