Kathie Lee & Hoda: In A World Review
Actress Lake Bell is trying to make big changes in the film industry with her new movie In A World. If you’ve ever noticed that women don’t usually do voice overs for movie previews in the theater, so has Lake Bell, who wrote, directed and starred in the new documentary. Lake must have done a good job pulling triple duty, because she won the Screenwriting Award at Sundance.
Lake Bell credited everything she applied to shooting her own movie from the extra time she spent on set when she was acting in movies. Most of the time, when the director tells everyone they have an hour until the next scene is shot, the actors go to their trailers. Lake would always stick around and watch everyone work, soaking up all that she could.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Lake Bell Looking For Accents
In In A World, Lake Bell is looking for accents, something she has done in real life as well. Lake has always been very attracted to voices and the sound of them, and even made a dinner party trick out of performing them when she was younger.
One American dialect that fascinates Lake in particular is what she calls the “Sexy Baby Vocal Virus,” where women use a very exaggerated uptalk, sounding like particularly eloquent infants that are asking a question. Lake prefers when women use their own real voice, instead, speaking from the diaphragm.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Challenges Of Writing, Directing, and Starring In a Film
The most difficult between writing, directing, and starring in In A World was, according to Lake Bell, writing, directing, and starring in something. Having to do all three things at the same time, she was rarely doing just one thing at a time. The secret to dealing with all that stress? A comfortable shoe with a nice insole for running around all the time.
