Lake Bell's 'In A World' Voice Over Movie Wins
Sundance 'Outstanding Screenwriting' Award

January 27, 2013

(VOXtra) - Saturday night at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT, writer-director-star Lake Bell and her new movie, In A World, won the festival's Dramatic Competition Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for outstanding screenwriting - perhaps the first of many to come as the comedy about a female voice actor in LA's promo/trailer world finds a path to movie screens nationwide.
An earlier VoiceOverXtra article describes the movie (scene shown here) and the rave reviews it received at the festival. And all voice actors are invited to a special screening of the film in San Francisco on Jan. 31 (more on that below).

"Wow, listen, I wasn't expecting that at all," Bell said, taking the stage when the award was announced. "My voice is cracking, I guess I'm going through puberty as well.

"I wanna thank the incredible group of people who supported me," she continued, "Eddie, Sean, Ross, Mark, Jett, Scott, my incredible cast, who took a chance on me for this and um, this is just so unexpected. Thank you so much, Sundance, for giving me continuing encouragement to really just have the balls to do this. Thank you so much, thank you."

Award Show host Joseph Gordon-Levit returned to the stage and said, "I saw that one too - In a World - really f*king good, good movie, made me laugh."


Here's a who's who on the team and cast of In A World:
  • Director: Lake Bell
  • Screenwriter: Lake Bell
  • Executive Producers: Ross Jacobson, Sean O'Grady
  • Producers: Lake Bell, Mark Roberts, Jett Steiger, Eddie Vaisman
  • Cinematographer: Seamus Tierney
  • Editor: Tom McArdle
  • Production Designer: Megan Fenton
  • Composer: Ryan Miller
  • Principal Cast: Lake Bell, Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Fred Melamed


On Thursday evening, Jan. 31, you have the opportunity to view the new movie with Lake Bell and other stars, at a special screening in San Francisco at the Sundance Cinemas Kabuki Theater (1881 Post Street).

The screening starts at 7:15, but arrive early. Popular LA voice actor Joe Cipriano, who is among several voice actors to appear in the film, invites you to mingle with the cast and colleagues at a no-host "Meet and Greet" beginning at 6 p.m., at the Kabuki Theater's second floor Bistro Bar.
