“Stephen Weese was such an incredibly fun director to work with... I’ve worked with plenty of studios where the experience feels like “just a job.” While working with Stephen, he made sure we were all getting the job done, but kept the booth filled with a lighthearted energy. I remember laughing so hard and having a great time recording! Keeping the recording sessions a positive environment made it easy for me to take chances and create some wacky characters with bold choices - knowing that he would be open to letting me explore some creative ideas with my voice. I hope I get the chance to work with him again on future projects!”
-- Bonnie Gordon, voice actor, Street Fighter games
