The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences™ (SOVAS™) has announced that they will welcome Aditya Sood, the Hollywood super producer of the top grossing box office film, The Martian in this year’s events as part of the growing list of respected conference panelist. Aditya Sood’s hit movie, The Martian, starring Matt Damon, is one of the most inspiring movies produced this year.

“The story-behind-the-story of the film The Martian, is how the author, Andy Weir, discovered the power of a voice actor to bring his story of The Martian to life, at a time when publishers were refusing to print it as a book. The original narration, and record breaking success of The Martian as an audiobook is at the heart of the film’s development,” said SOVAS™ CEO Rudy Gaskins. “Aditya Sood’s presence as a speaker will further demonstrate the strength of the voice arts community and the new relevance of audiobooks.”

That’s Voiceover!™ is the SOVAS™ in depth conference event that covers all things important to the voice acting industry, so it is but fitting to have the producer of the film The Martian to join their panel, as it is not generally known is that The Martian was innovatively launched as an audiobook. And much of its success in the film can be attributed to the following of the original audiobook version of the movie.

Canadian audiobook specialists, James Tonn and Greg Lawrence of Podium Publishers saw the book’s merit and created what is now the best-selling audiobook in history. The true story behind the making of audiobook The Martian is about the real life impact that one man’s dream can have on an entire industry.

That’s Voiceover!™ will feature a ‘The Martian’ panel discussion with Aditya Sood, who played a role to bring the film version to fruition; the author of the original ‘The Martian’ book, Andy Weir; and R.C. Bray, the narrator of the audiobook ‘The Martian’, at the Pacific Design Center on Saturday, November 14th at 10am PT. They will also be in attendance in the VOICE ARTS® AWARDS GALA on November 15, 2015, happening as well at the Pacific Design Center

“It is my pleasure to join SOVAS™ and voice artists from around the world, at the voiceover industry’s most important events,” shared Sood. “THE MARTIAN’s success has shone a white hot spotlight on the close link between audiobooks and Hollywood producers.”
