Take Leigh Brooks for example...
She's not any regular actor. She's a voice-over specialist. You can hear her narrating books-on-tape, doing political ads and even giving life to animated characters.
At her headshot she told us about a project she did with the National Wildlife Federation, narrating several characters for a Ranger Rick app. That's right - Ranger Rick! You remember that from elementary school, right?
The app is called "Click the Birdie" and the basic idea is that children can select a different region of North America and "photograph" birds on their iPad by tapping on the screen, which simulates a camera viewfinder.
Each time a bird is "shot" by the child playing the game, an info screen comes up and a short "bio" of the birdie is displayed.
When children visit different regions in the Click the Birdie game, a host tells them about the native birds that live there and offer other fun facts. Leigh voiced several of these adorable characters!
You can buy Click the Birdie for only $.99. And honestly, it's fun for adults too. We both found the advanced level challenging to keep up with!
Thanks Leigh for trusting us with your headshots - and for telling us about Click the Birdie!
We've had fun playing it and know that other families will enjoy it, too ~ it's fast paced, educational, colorful and a blast!
