Voicing Fiends

Take a peek at a Making Fiends recording session

Agi Home Record

We've come a long way from the days of the web cartoon, when we would record voices in Amy's apartment. Aglaia would have to hit the "record" button herself, perform as Vendetta, then hit "stop". Amy would give some direction, and then Aglaia would start up take two, and so on.

At Nickelodeon, things are a whole lot fancier. They have two professional recording studios right in the building, with real microphone stands and everything!

We don't have to press the buttons ourselves anymore either. Nickelodeon has patient recording engineers, like Justin Brinsfield.

Dave Wasson directs the audio sessions, making sure we get all the best and fiendiest performances for every line.

The studio is comfortable, and we all have a great time as we wait for our turn to record our lines.

They even provide snacks for us. Voice recording is so much fun!
