Episode 2 is out! http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/460653

This is the story of a boy who is struggling to survive and cope with the loss of his father and separation of his family. This is Philip's apocalypse.

I'm very happy with this! I spent about a week writing, recording, and editing all by myself for the voice acting contest! Please vote and review!

The music playing in the background is from a collection of ambient tracks called Myosotis. You can listen to them by visiting MoonTribe's channel on YouTube!

SPOILERS!
To those of you that do not understand what is going on, Philip is listening to a cassette player. He recorded a message after he lost his dad, somewhere around the day of the first heat wave. By this time, he is 16, and he is trying to find his way home.

I know I've told you before that I really enjoy this Mike, and you tend to undersell it a bit, but I really do think this is a great piece of work. The concept, ambiance, and acting really tie together to tell a great story of sadness and loss.

Josh:
The range wasn't that great. The boy's voice didn't change too much when he got older. Also, the nursery rhymes sounded like the younger version of the boy. The acting was pretty good, however I wish you had portrayed more emotions. When the particularly sad parts came about, he could have broken down more. When the odler boy revealed himself, I think it would have been better it had sounded more like a natural inner monologue instead of him narrating and reading from a script. With all that said, I really did like this and the idea of the end of the world from a kid's point of view. Good idea and good quality. Overall a very good job!

Andrew:
Your acting is very good. I totally believe that character and could feel his pain. Now his emotion felt a bit lacking in the sense that he kept going from sad to more sad to really sad. I got that emotion, but it would have been nice to hear another. Now the three voices. One of which was only a few lines, and like Harlandgirl's submission, I didn't really get a chance to really hear that voice to be able to judge you on it. Also your other two are the same voice. I understand what you were trying to do with the younger and older voices but I just didn't have a really good idea of your range and, how I interpreted it, that was one of the judging categorizes. Overall an entertaining skit but could have been better.

WOW! of all the submissions I've judged.. I've never felt so depressed from any but this one. You have definately caught the emotional strain of an apocalypse. Young phillip, panicing and torn by loss, and older phillip, calm and wisend from his years of survival. The voice for the nursery ryhme sounds like young phillip but hes gone phycho, however it balances out as the submission progresses. Phillips voices fit his age transitions perfectly A surviors tale is a common story, but as usual its the story behind the concept that matters, and it is something that is plausible and rarely used. when using static, people usually have trouble finding the right ratio of static to voice, but you have found the right balance. Good choice of music too. I bet this is probably how the world is going to end to some extent, but probably not exact to this manner.

I'd like to know how it could have been better, this review didn't really help at all. I went as far (range) with my 15 year old throat as I could, and BURNT HAIR AND PICKLES still beat me. What.

Very nice :) ... and sad ... :(

I wanted to return the favor of the review.

Production quality is great. Writing is original and tells a solid story. The mood was well composed (almost had a Silent Hill vibe). The melancholy was palpable. Performance was good and honest ... but the range of emotions wasn't particularly fulfilling ... then again, this was a voice acting contest ... not an acting contest :)

As mentioned by another, reminded me of The Road. Very nice, sir.
