Most importantly, In a World . . . is Bell's first crack at finding her own voice as a filmmaker. If ladies can't voice trailers, at least they can be heard in the stories female directors decide to tell. Which will happen first: a second female director winning an Academy Award or a second female voice-over actress landing a blockbuster theatrical trailer campaign?

Melamed deadpans, "Will we have a woman president? Undoubtedly. Will we have a woman Don LaFontaine? Maybe."

Bell should make independent filmsm where she can control the promotion campaign of a film. Most commercial movies are marketed to connect to a general audience. A specialty voice over would only make sense for a small audience at an indy film. In the US a low male voice appears to match the needs of a mass audience.


Personally, I am a "voice person."  Many voices are too annoying for me to listen.  Women's are sometimes too high pitched.  I like a deep male voice.  Two favorites:  Kathleen Turner and James Earl Jones.  Can't beat them.
