HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Rick Zieff has been immersed in the entertainment industry for twenty-five years. He has directed, cast, produced, written, and acted. Rick’s experience spans all media– film, television, stage, radio, CD-ROM, and the internet. His reputation for innovative, multicultural casting, and finely tuned character direction make him sought after for animation, videogame, and marketing/promo projects. For example, when voice directing the acclaimed animated feature “Steamboy”, Rick cast not only in L.A., New York, and London, but also in the Northern England towns where the movie took place. His stars in that project were Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina, and Anna Pacquin. He developed the voices for the animated pilot “The Theys”, and cast and directed all 52 episodes of “Gundam Force” on the Cartoon Network and the recent online game “The Dark Knight”. Rick has also directed videogames for Bandai and Sony. Notably, Rick cast “The Prates of the Carribean” videogame, and “The ChubbChubbs!” which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.

I guess I most often get cast commercially as the guy who's a little left of center (no, not politically....more of a quirky thing) I do a lot of character work for animation and video games. I'm known as someone with a lot of range.
