VAC 11 Judge Review:
Wow! What a complex meaning out of such a short piece! I really enjoyed that, but I’m a sucker for conciseness. The ambience and all the sound effects were perfect and mixed in nicely. I think the vocals could have used some reverb or something to make it sound like Lance and his grandpa were actually in the wilderness. I think grandpa actually could have used some more power to his voice; he sounded weak but seemed very strong-headed, I think he needed more acting to his character. The script could have been more clever, in my opinion, but that transition at the end to the final eponymous line really surprised me. And the distinction between characters was very good. I have to say again, I really enjoyed this piece. Great dramatic work!
Thank you so much! Heehee, it means a lot to me that you liked it so much, and I will agree that the grandpa could have used some more work on. but hey, I had fun with it, and I'm looking forward to the next contest!
Great job, fellow entrant! I liked the voices and the plot, which is different from a lot of the entries. The mixing should be fixed up a bit, though. It's still kinda quiet, and the mixing of the sound effects volume compared to the voices volume could do to be a bit better. Still, great job! Good luck!
Bollocks, I guess it wasnt loud enough! Hahah, back to the drawing room, and thank you for the feedback!
A really nice piece that made me think. Great voice acting, but you could project your voice just a bit more, sounded kinda quiet at some parts. Ambiance and SFX are great and fit really well. The writing, as Flow said, is a good change of pace. Hits ya hard, and gets you thinking about life and death. I applaud you good sir.
Thank you so much! Yeah, I still need to go back in there and remix the audio, but the fact that everyone can't get over the writing is what I'm really proud of! Thanks again!
This was a very interesting change of pace compared to a lot of the other entries I've heard from the contest who mostly rely on comedy. As the person before me said though, the mixing could be much better. The volume is extremely low and toward the end it gets too loud. Work on your volume levels and this will be a great entry.
Totally agree with the both of you! Gonna edit it when I get home!
I think this is great, and a nice, different entry compared to the others I've listened to. My only problem is the mixing. The volume level, for instance, is much too low.
Hey thanks! Heheh, not too late to change that up, and I agree that it is a bit off. Thanks friend!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
