For those who want an early preview
« on: October 20, 2009, 10:10:17 pm »
Anyone who is helping me edit or do art please send me a pm saying that you want a sneak peak.

It is by no means finished and needs a lot of editting, I am just needing a few people to look at it and tell me every mistake just in case I am missing one that I need to correct later.

I also just want an overall outlook of what you think of the episode so far.

Send me a pm and I will give you the details.

Just send your script my way and I'll skim carefully *smiles*

I would, but my script file was recently corrupted... and I don't feel like copy and pasting out of the flash.

Indeed it is, when it is finished you can look at the finished product and go through. I want to get every mistake right now as it is anyway.

I had a brilliant idea... I was thinking of going into a hobby as a voice actress. I figured maybe adding voice to the dialogue ^_^ I can't do it just yet, but I was hoping for the future, and if we get enough people

I highly recommend no voices. Unless you want a bunch of flaming and arguing about how it "should have been". (ie. accents, name pronunciations, [and the fact that PSZ is not a woman] and just overall bad acting [with low to no budget productions, you're bound to run into some terrible actors who think they're great])

I dunno, I'll keep watching if there are voices, but you may lose fans, so keep that in mind, neo.

Maybe not, Mr. Bekkler. 

That's what auditions are for: to weed out the bad voices and harvest the good ones.

Besides, some of the best talent came from relative unknowns.  Who knows?  Maybe doing voice recordings can be a snappy addition to the series.

It could be done right, but it would have to be done RIGHT. That's all I'm saying.

Sound production is serious business, and a difficult job. Just a few things you need for it to be effectively better than text on screen:

Good recording quality (none of that crackly laptop microphone stuff)

Believable voice actors (that sound like they're actually interacting rather than reading off a screen)
with
Distinct voices (if Chrono, Dalton, and Magus all sound the same, why bother casting different people at all? (Or Ayla, Marle, Lucca, Leene))

Pronunciation consensus (It should be uniform and agreed upon by majority of cast IMO)

Natural sounding dialogue (Witty writing helps, but ultimately this is a teamwork issue between actors and writer)


If it can be done, it should be done well.

I'm not a full woman YET. But the drugs I'm getting from the doc should give me the voice after a few weeks. Besides... people flame all the time in movies about actors and stuff. It's human nature. Get used to it.

It's not my project, I don't have to get used to anything. I just wouldn't want to see what is already a quality project go downhill from taking too much on. It's neo-fusion's vision. More power to him!

Well, I am gladly going to say, that I want to include anything possible to make this remarkable by episode 15... voice acting may or may not happen, I understand the ideas and consequences that could go with it, and I understand the rewards that could come from it.

Either way, but episode 15... which at this point could be a year away... at least... and that is being generous... very generous... okay call it two years... anyway, by episode 15 I would like to have fully hand drawn episodes... that would be nice, but very tough.

Mr. Bekkler, of course we would need good sound quality production for the concept of voice acting to be included into neo-fusion's work (if he considers it a possibility).

I would gladly contribute to the process, including my own voice talents (assuming it sounds great in committee).  I own a quality microphone (with wind screen) and industry-grade sound editing software.

But maybe this is just me getting too involved in the production process.  What says you, neo?
