"Stuff Happened One Night" by Rehab-Reject*
Comments: There was a little dead air, and slight distortion like you used a bit too much sound removal. Also, it sounds like you used a reverb effect since you were in a mansion, but the distortion plus the fact that you cut the lines off before the echo ended made it weird. There was also some puffs/pops in some recordings and clipping as well. A few more things with the echo... the character that got called shouldn't have had the effect put on hi lines since he wasn't in the house, and to be honest the echo you chose just didn't really work. I think it would have worked better if you left it out all together save for the ghosts since it helps with the spectral sound. Now that I'm done with the mixing and specifically that echo, you had really good range. One of the best in the contest, really. Acting wise, I really liked your emotion. However, a lot of the lines you read had the rare problem of being overacted. This is a MUCH better problem than underacting. Overacting shows you have the energy and character down, but it tends to make the lines sound a little phony. Your best reads were the ghosts and when the main guy was screaming (which was really impressive). Overall, the biggest problem was the mixing decisions. Some background music would have been really good along with getting rid of that damn reverb. haha. As far as your actual acting goes, you have excellent talent. The best thing for you to do at this point is to go back and compare the lines I pointed out to the rest of it. With all that said you did a good job and I'd live to work with you some day!
This is awesome!! How can you do so many different voices like that?
Thanks dude! I'm just a pimp like that lol
The story was nice for sure, but the voices were what got me.
The main character and his friend were both very natural, while also contrasting. It's hard to make more than one or two distinct natural voices, so I appreciate the quality of that.
I'd recommend adding a vocal exciter to really bring out the vocals.
Oh, and get a pop filter. Your P's sometimes pop pretty hard.
Overall, lots of distinct voices, and that kind of range is appreciable.
Hey thanks bro! Yeah the hardest part was making the two main characters sound different and natural. What's a vocal exciter? I'm pretty noobish when it comes to recording, but I did have a pop filter, I probably was too close to the mic when recording some parts. Thanks for the review and tips.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
