6th Voice Acting Contest Results
Ted's Christmas Final Score: 87
You get big points on your range! Each character had a very distinct voice, although you can improve on your acting. The main throw offs in your acting are your sighs and laughs. They sound very fake and distract me from the flow of the skit. Also, the skit itself isn't really all that good. It is almost as if it is a random deleted scene from some movie, with no real beginning and no real ending. The whole winter theme wasn't wintery either, you could have expanded on the whole "retorted toqitoe guy" and made him work with elfs, possibly stuffing the toys with toqitoes and causing other "retarded toqitoe guy" havoc and chaos. Right now, it's just an easy script that anyone could have thought up in 5 minutes.
Anyway, when it comes to acting, strongly keep in mind the TONE of the character. The main character, for example, should be REALLY pissed off at the other guy. You make him sound very casual, however, almost as if he was simply talking without much enthusiasm. Don't get me wrong, you had good enthusiasm, but you could have made it a lot more enthusiastic. Act like you care, because your acting like the character, so you should try your best to think what the character thinks. This makes those sighs, tones, and other gestures a lot easier to carry out. Getting into character is really important, and you show signs of a good voice actor! Improvements, improvements, improvements.
Keep it up and soon I would hire you for my animation if I was some fancy animator, although it seems many enjoy your simple style of voice delivery, so your already on a great start.
Mostly nitpicking here. Every once in a while Ted's voice slipped into your normal voice (It was very noticeable). Jeremy's voice sounded a bit similar to Ted's Friend's(?) voice. My biggest complaint is for the mixing. there some pops that made their way into the recording and the reverb used toward the end on Ted sounded a bit robotic. Overall, I really enjoyed this. If I ever find an animator for my series, I would definitely scout you.
