The story of an odd superhero who, due to a unique affliction, has to take extra measures to conceal his secret identity.

This is my first media submission of any type, ever, and I hope that it is not too readily apparent in the quality of the work. I'm submitting this as an entry into NG Voice Acting Contest 8. It is only a voice-over track, and has neither music nor sound effects (with one exception, which I also did vocally) added to it. I myself did the voice-over work for all of the characters, who are as follows:

The Narrator (aka Meanwhile Man)
Police Captain Donnelly
the press (a small rabble of reporters)
Will Williams (reporter)
Bix Wixby (fanclub forum moderator)
Ted (a photojournalist)
Facehead Man (our hero)
Steve (a reluctant sidekick)
BF Nelson (a villain)
Goon (a goon)

It was recorded using an old Plantronics gaming headset, and mixed with Audacity 1.3.14 Free Audio Editor.
I am hopeful for feedback of any kind, be it constructive, critical, or just plain rude. As far as that goes, I'm taking it all in stride with the knowledge that there is vast amounts of room for improvement.
I hope that you have fun listening to it, as I had fun recording it.

Additional Comments: There was some background hiss.There were some pops in the mic as well. There was pretty good range in here though Steve and a couple fo the reporters were pretty close. At times it seemed as if you were reading so work on sounding more natural. The villain was not very original. Since he's bitchface man, work on making him more flamboyant. He's a character worthy to overact. I enjoyed this skit. Good job writing it!

Thanks a mint for taking the time to write out a review. It's going to be extremely helpful, as I think I may have gotten myself hooked on doing this sort of thing. Expect more.

First of all, I think this is wonderful. But since you asked for feedback, I will do my best to constructively criticize you in minute detail.

-I think the writing could have been tightened up to improve your average jokes-per-second. By that I mean removing unnecessary words and phrases, paraphrasing whatever you can - just trimming the fat, you know?

-ALSO, I think the dialogue isn't being used to its full potential. The jokes shift between funny concepts (FHM's alter ego's face is on his shoulder, he kidnaps sidekicks, etc.) and funny interactions (the conversations about those things), which is OBJECTIVELY GOOD.

HOWEVER, those interactions mainly act as exposition for the conceptsâEU"the dialogue describes FHM's face situation and Steve describes how FHM kidnapped him, but the main jokes of those conversation are the absurdity of the subject matter rather than the actual interaction between the characters.

Then again, my sense of humor leans toward rapid-fire non sequitirs. Take it all with a grain of salt.

Thanks much. I've never written one of these before, so I very much appreciate it. I will now reduce your feedback to cooking terms:
1. Trim the fat.
2. Get to the meat of the subject.
3. Take it all with a grain of salt.
4. Enjoy! (serves up to four people)
I added that last one myself. About your first point, I did actually remove some unnecessary lines of dialogue, and even a whole unnecessary character before submitting what you got to hear. While it certainly isn't trim, by any stretch of the imagination, it's not as fatty as it once was. I will take your advice to heart for future submissions.
