Oh my gosh, today I practiced reading a line from Nicolas Cage’s “The Rock” so I could learn to do a Nick Cage impression.
I practiced varying degrees of the Nick Cage impression 50 times.
I said the line in my own voice as a baseline 9 times.
I lip-synced the words to Cage’s delivery 12 times.
This took over 35 minutes of actual voice practice (with breaks) with several hours of searching for/watching Cage videos to see how he delivers his lines.
And now I can do the most basic of Nicolas Cage impressions!
Prepare yourselves for Nicolas Cage fan fiction readings...soon...
