Take a trip to the Haunted Headquarters, an office building where ghosts and ghouls work yearlong planning every aspect of Halloween!
2012 marks their 100th Anniversary and HHQ is seeking to reach out to the public with this audio promo.

With your enthusiastic host, Tom Zombie, you'll meet the disgruntled employees of the HHQ including a sassy Witch SecreScarytary with a bad temper, a depressed, stressed-out Wolfman and a snooty, fashion savvy Mummy.
You'll also meet their boss, there to ensure they all hate their jobs: Mr. Ghostly.


This is a submission for the Voice Acting Contest 9.

I like the "infomercial idea" and a nice skit for Halloween! You had some peaking/distortion issues. Wanda is my favorite voice by far. You do an excellent angry black lady. The other characters that were interviewed could have had more emotional range. It's very important for audio only skits. At times those other characters sounded a little like you were reading and not acting natural. Of course the narrator is supposed to sound that way, but the werewolf and mummy could have been a bit more like wanda in regards to reactions to the interviewer. The accent for the mummy also sounded forced. Overall, it was a very entertaining skit and I really liked the narrator and Wanda's voices. Other than the distortion, you mixing was pretty good and the whole skit was a cool idea. Nice jingle at the end!

Additional Comments: There were a few characters that sounded a bit too similar like the host and the wolfman as well as Mumford and Mr. Ghostly. I thought it was pretty clever working in Halloween into the theme. Not much to the mixing.

Review: Coming into this entry I wasn't sure what this was about, but quickly saw where you were going with your concept. The idea of monsters planning and controlling Halloween may not be a new concept, but it is one that I would personally find teadious and mind numbing. Planning any type of event makes me shudder as surely there will be those that will be unappreciate of my work. However, you might want to step it up and the emotions conveyed in the acting. Sure I could feel that the monsters were tired and bored with their jobs, but it wasn't puting off bad job "vibes" to me. Your range was pretty good which leads me to think that you might have been focusing more on the voices rather than the acting. I myself am guilty of this and I have had to work on it. Your mixing had no real issues in my opinion and I liked how you made some characters voices talk over others. Good job there. The writing, whie not bad, was somewhat predictable. This also is something I struggle with, so don't feel bad. Overall though I think you did a good job, and I can't wait to see what you come up with in the future.

Acting is pretty well done, you were talking a tad bit faster then your typical person, but I guess the reason for that is your time constrant since your maxed out on your allocated time. However your expressions are authentic and clear enough to get the point across. Which is what matters. The werewolf and the zombie sound almost identical to one another, everyone else has a more unique voice though. I kinda question the fit of Mumford and the witch, when I first heard mumford voice I actually thought he was a vampire at first. Plus the witch sounded like a sterotypical black woman, but I'll be leniant since it is a female voice. Good use of background sounds(even though you can hardly make them out) and a good choice for music. The creativity is diverse here, the biggest twist was that ghostly makes sure that everyone hates their jobs.
