Films Dis­tri­bu­tion [France] | Loews 429 Screen­ing: Thurs. Nov. 3 at 11:30 a.m. — Broad­way Cine­plex 4 Louise, an old woman, finds her­self alone in a small sea­side re­sort town on the last day of sum­mer, af­ter the last train leaves. Frag­ile and co­quet­tish, not nearly as well-pre­pared as a would-be Robin­son Cru­soe, Louise isn’t likely to make it through the quickly ap­proach­ing win­ter. Yet, Louise takes her aban­don­ment as a chal­lenge, con­fronting the el­e­ments as well as her me­mories. Di­rected by Jean-François Laguionie ( The Paint­ing). Pro­duced by JPL Films. Se­lected for An­necy, San Se­bas­tian, Sit­ges. films­dis­tri­bu­tion.com

how to choose lot­tery num­bers based on some­thing sex­ual.” I was over­heard do­ing some of my voices by a com­pany called GTE Imag­iTrek, and they asked me if I could do some voices from FernGully. I went up there and did a bunch of voices, then they told me, hey, the peo­ple down­stairs are do­ing kids’ CD-ROMs, and I started ac­tu­ally writ­ing and do­ing voices for inan­i­mate ob­jects, like Where’s Waldo- type games. And then I said, “Who else does this?”

An­imag: What does your av­er­age work week look like?

Minella: My in­box con­trols my whole day. From the mo­ment I get up and turn the com­puter on, it’s au­di­tions. Some­times, I’ll have to drive 150 miles to go work in an­other stu­dio. And be­ing that I work with world­wide clients, where there’s quite a time dif­fer­ence, there re­ally is no sleep for me, I get about three hours of sleep per night.

An­imag: How do you man­age to op­er­ate on three hours of sleep?

Minella: (In zom­bie voice) I’m a zom­bie!

An­imag: Hav­ing done this for so long on so many projects and hav­ing so many cred­its un­der your belt, is there some­thing that still ex­cites you about what you do?

Minella: Yes. I al­ways look at some­thing as a new chal­lenge, that I’m so grate­ful to do some­thing that is dif­fer­ent. (Speaks in alien voice) I’ve had to make up songs with­out any mu­sic track as some alien night­club singer. This is al­ways such a neat thing that I can go out of the box. But you know what re­ally is thrilling? If I ever get to see the out­come, the ac­tual prod­uct with the voice in it. That is what gives me goose­bumps.
