6th Voice Acting Contest Final Results!

A Winter Voice Ensamble Final Score: 59

FatKidWitAJetPak's Final Judgment:

Acting: 25/35
Fit: 15/25
Originality: 9/15
Range: 9/15
Mixing: 8/10
Final: 66/100

I enjoy your style and see some cool things coming from you in the future. If I were you, I would keep practicing. You remind me a lot of Stalagmite and his hip-hopish style of mixing. I liked your ideas, but you didn't properly carry them out. First, make sure to work on your acting. You should develop more so on your characters. Give the voices more depth. Currently it sounds like your just turning your normal voice into a series of beats and hops. Try to think deeper of the characters you are wanting to imitate, voice their lines as seriously as you can, and then after acting each voice mix them together into the beat you want to mix them in. Voice one character at a time, then voice another character to respond to that character, then finally mix their conversations together.

Editing each voice together in harmony can really lead to an awesome recording. I think if you did that, this would be a lot better. Sure, it takes a lot of practice to learn what kind of voices your best at, but once you do you can REALLY improv those characters into cool little skits like this, add a beat, and make it chilled. After adding all the well acted voices, mixed together with music, add sound effects like sirens, gun shots, record scratches, e.t.c. Proper mixing of these elements requires individual focus on THE ACTING... THE VOICES... THE BEAT... and finally THE SFX. Put them all together in layers. Do them one at a time, don't rush yourself. It seemed like you wanted to rush this skit into a nice flow, but ended up making it more chaotic than you wanted it to sound.

Also, remember that your characters sound like they are suppose to. None of the voices really fit. If its a kid, make the voice kind of high pitched and whiny. If its an old man, make the voice sound raspy. Remember, develop the voices your best at THEN voice them. All these voices sounded... not developed! Also, get a pop filter to avoid those fuzzy annoying noises.

JaShinYa's Final Judgment:

Acting: 27/35
Fit: 23/25
Originality: 15/15
Range: 10/15
Mixing: 5/10
Final: 80/100

The biggest issue with this was the mixing. It started alright, just some dead air; I could tell where you started and stopped recording. But then once the kids started screaming and snowmen coming to life, you were wayyy too close to the mic. There were a lot of puffs and pops. Props for mixing it well in time to the music though. A few other issues... A bunch of the voices were very close to your comfort zone. Try and step out of the box for more range. You were also holding back on the acting a lot. Let loose my man. All that with some awkward start/stops kept me from being abosrbed into your recording. Overall, I really liked the idea. This is one of the most unique ones in the contest. With better acting and mixing and maybe a bit more orginization, this would have been very awesome.

Comments
Very poor acting, story was hard to make out through most of the mumbling. My advise, add some more emotion and put more effort into your voice.

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

Hey Dude!

It's Easter and I figured you deserved some reviews that you were promised. I thought I would throw in my two cents as a peer reviewer.

Acting: 24/35
Continuity: 17/25
Originality: 14/15
Range: 8/15
Mixing: 4/10
Final: 67

Nice vocal ensemble in the beginning

Acting: I felt like you could have done SO much more with the voices. They all seemed sort of "dailed in" and didn't really offer anything characteristically. They all shared a similar monotone, very non-apealing attitude. I think you can improve on this in the future

Continuity: I'm assuming the jist of your sit is a series of short stories? if not it was very confusing to understand what was going on as a whole. The main story seemed to be the snowman near the end. it was nice to add variety, but I think you would have been better of with a singular story

Originality: I think the originality of your skit comes from its variety, or sporatic nature ofstories. they all share the same theme, but are diverse in their own way. I couldn't really see what would make this stand out from the other entries with the other elements in play, but I commend you for putting in the effort to try something different (a.k.a th a capella in the beginning.)

Range: I think your downfall in the range is the tone and attitude of all of your characters. because of this, they all seem to morph together into on similar voice, and I had a hard time trying to stay focused on what you were presenting because of it. I think you should experiment with your area near the mic, you seemed to be a little to close as well.

Mixing: You need some work on mixing. the basic things (quality, timing, pacing.) if you just take some time with each of your clips and your skit as a whole, re-evaluate all of them to try and organize them properly and I think you'll be on th rght track.

Great job.
