This is my entry for the voice acting contest. It is my first real go at doing some proper acting (so don't be too cruel!) The theme of the contest is the apocalypse with a minimum of 3 different voices. The script was written by me with all sounds been taken from free sound sites. All voices are not digitally enhanced apart from echo and distortion for phone lines/voice recording.
Hope it isn't too bad!

Thanks for taking the time to listen!

Transcript:
*phone ringing*
Nobody answers the phone and it is put on to voice mail

Voice mail: Hello, you've reached the phone of Helen Carter. I'm unable to take your call at the moment, but leave a message after the beep.

*beep*

Child's Voice: Mommy?, mommy?. I'm scared, nobodies here, everywhere's quiet. Mommy, why won't you answer the phone?

*explosion* phone then cuts out.

Creepy voice: All humans will be destroyed.

*click*

Ladies Voice: Hello. If your listening to this *sniff* Hello, if your listening to this, the day is June 11th 2012. I'm making...... I'm making this recording, becasue, I don't know....... I don't know what else to do.

Everythings, everythings just happened ah......so suddenly.

I haven't..... I haven't moved since the explosion. I don't see any *tsh* I don't see any point....because.....ever ybodies dead anyway.

There's a body, right over there. By the balcony. Being looking at it. I've been looking...... I've been looking at it for quite a while now. Can't, I don't know who it is. I can't work out, if its someone I know......or just a body....a random body.
Sorry....sorry, I can't talk about it at the moment.

You probably want to know more about the explosion anyway. There was *sigh* there was this thing. *pause* in the sky. It had, it had these, rainbow...coloured lights....and they were pretty. And we all, we all went to have a look. And then.....and then the sky...and then the sky turned red. And there were loads of them, just floating...dancing....and then blasting.

*sniff* Sorry

I'm gonna go other to the body now *sniff* I'm gonna go over to the body now.
*creaking floor* I'm sorry

God, it's cold.....so cold.... *sniff*
I can't...... I can't see the face.....its covered by....its covered by some kind of fabric.

Oh god the smell. *sniff* Ohhhh God!

Right, I'm gonna.....oh god....I'm gonna pull the thing back now.

*Sniff* The face....nooooo.....no the face....no its my face......its my face!

I really wish you would have portrayed more emotion with the main character and added more lines for the other 2 voices. Specifically, when she looks at the body and sees her face, I think she's pretty entitled to freak out. It seems like you were concentrating hard on the creepy, melencholy feel (It really worked by the way) but you could have branched out. On the other hand, the whole sad and creepy acting and ambiance was great. I'm really happy to see a female entering this contest and it makes me even happier that you did a great job!

Andrew:
Man I thought this sounded so cool. Just truly haunting. Great acting, amazing originality, sweet writing! Now unfortunately I had to dock points on range due to the lack of lines of your other voices. The rules say you need at least three voices in your skit, now true you had three, but I couldn't really get a feel for your other voices or how well you can do them cause there just wasn't enough to judge you on. I'm sorry but that's just the way I feel about it. Everything else was amazing though. I think your a great voice actor and I hope you continue making great skits like this one!

Excellent acting, the emotion in the characters seemed so real, your acting as the survvivor had me very impressed. It was almost as if you saw the events as they transpired. Helen Carters voice and the survivors voice sound almost identical, I actually thought they were the same person in the story. However, since you did well with the little kids voice(even though it was very hard to make out at times without the script) as well as the creepy voice, it kept you from getting a 0. The voices for each character were spot on, nothing stands out in this department. After seeing so many zombie apocalypses both on and off newgrounds. Its refreshing to find an unknown apocalypse, even though it might have been aliens or a meteor... or both... The atmosphere you made with your music WAS AMAZING! I actually felt like I was listening to a recording in the aftermath of the apocalypse. However the static was bit heavy at times and made it hard to understand what the characters were saying at times especially the childs voice. Also the music made it hard to hear the characters as well. Although music greatly adds to any story it shouldn't consume your voices. Although the story had me at the edge of my seat.. some of it didn't really make much sense... why was the surviovr staring at that body to begin with? And where does the creepy voice come in to play on this? Your acting is very well done, thanks for the script, really helped me get the dialog I had trouble understanding.

Melancholy!

The acting is decent! I think you did a good job, you could have told your story a bit faster. I like the atmosphere. In the end, I don't think your reaction was strong enough. You probably would have been screaming.

The one that I just recorded for the contest has a tape recorder sort of thing in it too! I swear I didn't steal it from you though!
