A call to arms - in other words, plz read lol

Post by SirMustapha » Mon Jun 14, 2004 5:44 pm

Some time ago, Graham suggested us doing "Audio fanfic", that is, reading pieces of fanfiction and letting others hear it. It was the motivation I needed to release the Epilogue for Chris's Futurama fanfic "The Search For Zapp". Due to the positive feedback, and I went ahead and did the first chapter, with our own Kif White providing some of the voices. Well, even though almost nobody heard the first chapter ( :P ), I'm still willing to go ahead and to the second chapter!

The difference is, the second chapter has quite a lot of characters, and I don't think Kif and I will be able to do them all. Actually, I think that would be very boring. So, I'm here to invite anyone that wants to participate to collaborate in the project! Yes, if there is a voice that you feel like doing, let me know here, and we'll try to add you in the party! In my opinion, the more people collaborating, the more diverse the project is, and the better.

I left at home a file documenting all characters present in the chapter, and I will post it here when I can. Kif already chose the characters that he wants to voice, and I have to comfirm my choices. Chris says she will voice a secondary character that has about two lines, as a cameo, and this calls for a collective Yay.

Yay!

And I have to say, I really wish there were some actresses to voice Amy and Leela. I'm voicing Zeal already, and I don't want to turn into a girl. ;D But if you wish to participate, just drop me a note here. Give up being such lazy bums and help me out here, eh?

I'd be happy to do a/some voice(s). I've got a microphone, just tell me what I need to do... it'd be good preparation for the play I'm in...

I didn't know there was such a thing going on. I would do it but I have no microphone. Oh well, better download the 1st chapter.
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye.

Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

You'd better. ;)

I intend to make the list of characters here, so you can see if there's an open slot you'd like to take. :)

Oh that's good, I wouldn't mind doing a bit-part as well. :)

OK, allow me to affirm again how incredibly flattered I am by this.

(I'm listening to Chapter 1 as we speak. Great music at the beginning, Fernie's narration is as great as ever. Expect a formal review soon. Graham seems entertained as well.)

And yeah, I've agreed to guest voice Cresher "Waa! She doesn't love me! Waa! Waa!" Wussley's mum, just so you don't hear any lies about me also voicing Leela, Amy, Linda and the Pain Monster. :)
Are you really gonna take it like that?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

YAY! ;D

Well, as discussed in chat this past weekend, I'll be continuing as Zapp and Kif, as well as tackling Wussley, Rupert Fro, Zoidberg and Hermes. Fernie will still be doing his brilliant narrating, his great Zeal voice, and others. We've got Chris having a small cameo as Wussley's mother, and Bothead and Graham ready to do parts! This is looking better and better :)

Edit: Oh, I'll do a few voices this afternoon for the next part too :)

So, we're getting somewhere, eh? Yes, this keeps getting better. :)

So far, the empty slots we have are:

Fry
Bender
Leela
Lieutenant Raye
Ensign Khan
Captain Spawkes

I'm keeping Zeal Bao and Robbie Servo for now. If necessary, I might try other voices, too, but I'll keep only those two for now. If you need, I can try and send you all lines that you have to record for the characters you choose. Just drop me a line.

Wow, my narration was called "great"? "Brilliant"? Gee, what a responsibility for the next chapter. ;D

Whoah, woah, woah! Sorry, but I said I couldn't because I don't have a microphone. All I said was that I would like too but I can't. Sorry about that.

Whoops! Sorry, Bothead. Scrolling up I see it was Abe who actually said they would :P

And while I'm here, I'll say that I've done a few more of the voices. You should have the first batch, Fernie :)

Got it! Gave a listen to some of them... Well, what can I say? Great, as usual! I'll take my time this weekend to download them and start working. I can't wait to see this taking shape.

For now, we still have the same open slots. Come on, people! If you have a microphone, give it a try! Shouldn't be that hard. If anyone needs assistance in recording sounds, I can give some help. (by the way, I should give the more "technical" details when it comes to sending me the files, but that's for later) We need actresses!

BTW, Chris, there are two lines for your character - the "classic" you know very well, and another short one a little afterwards, going something like "Yes, Captain, a heart attack". I don't think there is any other.

Yay! Excellent! If you want to make a voice, just pick one! Remember, we still have open slots for Leela and Amy, and we need an actress. ;) You can choose any other you think would sound good, too. Read the chapter (it's available somewhere in the Fanfic Opinions board) and see what lines suit you best, and then we'll talk further. :)

OK Fernie. ;) I can probably do a better Amy voice than Leela. So I'll be trying to practice my best Amy. If you need a male voice to be done instead, I'll see what I can do with the other male parts.
I am trying to get into voice-over work, so anything I can do like that sounds good.
