I find it very strange to see and hear myself speak in a video interview. Gazeta.pl was one of four that interviewed me as a Pixar employee who had worked on WALL-E, and the video piece they put together from it for their website is actually fairly long. It is linked here, from the Platige community blog. Frankly, I can barely bring myself to watch it. Talking slowly and deliberately so as to (a) make it easier on the translators, and (b) not say anything Pixar would be embarrassed by, to me I sound like a dimwit when the English audio cuts through. The Polish announcer reading the translation (or whatever it is he's saying) has a much more melodious and focused delivery. It seems I haven't taken quite enough improv classes, so I suppose I should start going back to them. I wonder if people who are interviewed regularly, such as politicians and stars, get accustomed to seeing and hearing themselves on video (or even learn to enjoy it), or if it's always more of a disturbing "weird, there's an android on TV that looks just like me" kind of feeling?
