Samantha Paris - Finding the Bunny (Corte Madera Store)

Sunday, April 15, 2018 - 4:00pm

Samantha Paris’s Finding the Bunny is an engaging and heart-warming combination of memoir, business book, inspirational story and inside look at today’s most ubiquitous, most influential, and most invisible art. Through narration, flashback, inner monologue, and snappy laugh-out-loud dialogue that moves seamlessly from past to present and professional to personal and back again, Finding the Bunny artfully peels back the curtain on the fascinating world of voice-over, and much more.

With untethered honesty and humor, voice-over genius Paris reveals her intensely personal story — that of a woman in mid-career, recovering from a disastrous childhood, dealing with a failed but far-from-loveless marriage, running a hugely successful business, shepherding thousands of students through the learning process so that they can realize their dreams, while dealing with a burning internal conflict about what happened to hers. As Peter Coyote writes in this book’s foreword, “Finding the Bunny is an eye-opener, a thought-provoker, an education, an adventure and an inspiration. (It’s) about transformation more than anything else— offering ideas that may challenge or freshen your thinking, enrich your life and light your own path.”

Samantha Paris is a natural born teacher, entrepreneur and force of nature. Her greatest gift has been teaching others that the power of possibility actually already exists in your own internal life, if you just give voice to it.

Samantha Paris is an award-winning voice actor, educator, entrepreneur and founder of Voicetrax San Francisco (located in Sausalito), the largest and most respected voice-over academy in the United States. Born Bobbi Block in Southern California, Samantha landed a commercial agent at age sixteen and went on to enjoy a career that included nearly 1,000 national and regional commercials and roles in nearly 200 half-hour animated television cartoon shows, including the mega-hit cult series, Jem and the Holograms. Samantha founded Voicetrax San Francisco in 1988, and over the years, has trained more than 10,000 aspiring and working voice actors. With a fierce commitment to the philosophy that talent can be taught, she has turned actors and non-actors from all walks of life into working voiceover artists, many of whom supplement their incomes and others who go on to making voice-over their full time living, garnering six to seven figures a year. Above all, Samantha has helped transform the lives of people through the process of helping them find their true voices and ultimately, find their bunnies. And in that process, she found her bunny.
