Suezo's Easter Judging (V.A.C 6)
It's Easter and I thought I would give you a peer review in the spirit of good will.
Anyone can live off of 8 bucks! I think I might be proof of that...
Acting: Even though tis skit only really involves one character (aside from the wooing children, and the one man wooing?) You definatley did some good acting with the voiceyou created and the sort of "tongue in cheek" sarcasm of explaining the long and aparently odd deaths of your family.
Continuity: I really didn't see much plot to this skit. So Robert Frost is speaking beyond the grave? or is he a ghost of the winter time like christmas carol? I think what irked me the most was the disappearance of the children... they cheered in the beginning but there was no interaction in the rest of the story, maybe work on that next time.
Originality: I don't know muc of Robert Frost or his work, but I don't see many people talking about him here or there so original character concept yes. Not so much in the actual plot of your skit. Maybe you could have involved the children listening to the story to add some more effect to what you were presenting.
Range: Right, so aside from the children you had: one voice. Granted it was in my opinion well done, so I'm not gonna axe you for not utilizing other voices more, but you did use somethig other than your actual voice (I assume.) which is always a plus.
Mixing: There isnt much to be said about mixing. You pretty much did this in one take? if not then it was well mixed next to the fact there was no other voice to compare interaction with. The children's voices seemed out of character (timing wise) with what Mr. Frost was saying.
If you just add some more voices and maybe a little more content I think this could be much improved in the future. But until then this was a great effort.
6th Voice Acting Contest Results
Robert Frost Talks of Winter Final Score: 31
This recording seemed very empty, with no music, improper cutting, and white noise as a background filler. Simply adding light background music / SFX such as a a ceiling fan, stuff going on in an office, people talking, touching music for touching scenes, hard core music for fighting scenes, or sexy music for sex scenes, can REALLY HELP.
Your acting is as empty as the background. You need to show more enthusiasm. I can understand Robert Frost is an old character, but you can still make a dying old man sound enthusiastic by getting into character! Make your voice a bit more wraspy, boring, and shaky. To spicen things up a bit, add hilarious "old man lines" that will keep people listening, or perhaps include ridiculous questions from children like, "WHY ARE YOU SO OLD". You can really spicen up the story by adding things like this.
Overall... I actually found this recording hilarious because it came off as a "troll" submission where you were just being an old fart who is SO FUCKING BORING. The thing is... the character is so fucking boring that this submission is so fucking boring and it makes everything so fucking boring, so I guess you did alright for a boring old man with no humor in him whatsoever, talking on like a fly buzzing around someones head until he is swatted down by some piece of newspaper and thrown in a trash can, that newspaper being a gun apparently. This character really made me laugh after thinking about it. This is probably one of the more lulzy submissions, so Im going to favorite it because of my absurd sense of humor.
Oh, and you only had one voice. three "Yays" from some kids don't count as a character. You need three characters for this to be an applicable submission. :C
P.S., did all this really happen to Robert Frost? If so, LMAO!!! xD
First of all, you technically used at least 3 voices, counting the children... but come on. Really? Using the same depressing voice for the entire skit is lame and it pisses me off a little bit. You had a very original idea that was brought down due to lack of effort and creativity. Besides that, there was obvious dead air behind your recording, the editing was choppy, there were clicks, pops, bumps and you tripped over your words. Overall, get into character and add some awesome voices and acting to an awesome concept.
Acting - 26/35
Fit - 13/25
Range - 2/15
Mixing - 4/10
Add some more voices that don't last less then 3 seconds. (for the whole duration of the movie)

I have never thought winter could be so depressing...
Still, just wanna get this out there, for a submission that has to do with voice acting, strange how theres only 1 voice for 97% of the movie. A suggestion I could think of would have been when one of Mr Winter's family members died, there could of been a very brief skit for each one.
Still, decent story telling.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
