Suezo's Easter Judging (for V.A.C 6)

Hey Drift!

It's easter and I thought I would do you the honors of giving you a peer review of your contest piece since you were so kind to do the same for me.

Acting: 28/35
Fit: 25/25
Originality: 12/15
Range: 9/15
Mixing: 6/10
Final: 80

I'll be honest when I first saw this on the thread (about 3 months ago) I was pretty sure I already knew what it was already about. Needless to say I think you did a great job with the whole "maniacal snowman skit."

Acting: For the most part the mentality was there. The thing that always gets me (in my opinion) is the subtle nueances that give the skit the icing on the cake (characters talking in background, characters reacting to what is going on) always assume that even if a character isnt talking, they are still involved in the story as it moves. I think think you could bring this out a little more the next time around.

Fit: Honestly, I think that this category is pointless becuase the contest said "winter themed" I'd say that was too vague and to disiss any skit becuase of that would be rediculous since they ALL are "winter themed."

Originality: I think this is an awesome theme, granted it's probably been used a dozen times over, it's my belief that it's not who does it first but the best. You set a nice mood with the contrasting characters and their extreme differences.

Range: From what I heard, there was distinctly 2 voices, the children and flakey (and the cop) I think you can experimet a little more with you voices. The accents are good but try using that to you're advantage to morph the identity of your characters, as opposed to relying on the idea that kids voices are high, and sinister villians are low and grainy (same for cops.)

Mixing: Just some minor mixing things, i would say work more on the timing between characters speaking and actions happening within the skit. Also the same can be said for the gunshots and their variety.

Overall great job, I can't wait to hear more stuff from you!

Lol at the *snap of the fingers = breaking of neck sound effect* Some of your kid voices sounded kind of odd. I couldn't really tell how old they were, but they sounded very cartoony so this would be good for an animation. Your acting is pretty good, although it is more centered around a comedy aspect rather than a serious aspect. Take in mind that just because its a comedy, doesn't mean the voices can't be serious. ACT like the characters are serious, even though it is a very non-serious atmosphere. For instance, you could really make the singing kid act a bit crazier, a lot more scared, and a lot more enthusiastic.

The snowman was a pretty funny character. You could have made him a mobster who believes he is a snowman, which is kind of what I was lead to believe there for a while. Your writing needs some improvement. In retrospect, it was just a snowman attacking kids and then arrested. You could have really built upon this idea by getting more into characters with everyone. This allows you to come up with ideas MUCH easier. You'd be surprised with how much improv work you can do by simply making a character and acting him to heart, or a close to heart as you can get to.

JanShinYa's Judgment:

Acting: 29/35
Fit: 22/25
Originality: 12/15
Range: 10/15
Mixing: 7/10
Final: 80/100

Comments:

The kids had very similar voices, which is the main reason for the loss of points in range. The other points from range were lost because the cop's voice was not too far away from the kids' either. The kids weren't nearly as scared or disturbed as they should have been with an insane, demonic snowman running around killing people. The cop (Who came out of nowhere), had a tone that sounded like he was landing a plae rather than firing a shotgun at a monster.

Also, with the lack of range in the cop's voice, there was a lack of fit. He wasn't as authoritative or tough as I would imagine. These were reasons points were lost in acting and fit. As for mixing, the bells and shotgun were a bit choppy and I didn't understand why there was a busy highway in the background. It didn't fit the scene well. Also, I didn't even realize Flakey was killing people until listening through again. Make that major event stand out.

Finally, originality took a hit because a murderous "Frosty" has been done before (An example being Ebolaworld's "Snowy") and in this contest I am really looking forward to skits done to a more general winter theme. The good points- I liked the voice of Flakey, overall sound quality was pretty good, and the short song at the end gave me a chuckle. There's a lot of really good voice acting potential if there was more effort getting into character.

Comments:
Most of the voices are diverse and done really well, but some additional audio and music would have greatly improved this submission
