Official Title: "Of Stone and Sky"
My entry to the Newgrounds Voice Acting Contest 11!

Firstly I need to give credit where credit is due:

PeterSatera, you are an amazing musician and your piece Pitfall Reactor(The song playing in the background) was an inspiration for putting this skit together. I listened to it dozens of times to visualize exactly when specific moments should happen and what to say.

The script, writing and all voices (including background screams and voices) are my sole creation. The SFX are from http://www.freesfx.co.uk, and the amazing musical score is as stated from PeterSatera.

The script for the audio is available on my page http://tonash.newgrounds.com/news/post/874966

VAC 11 Judge Review:

Well technically, this wouldn’t be exactly the first deep one sighting, just the first reappearance hahahaha. Anyways, there seemed to be a basic two or three variations of voice, with slight differences between them. Because of that, the characters would have really blended if it weren’t for the difference in acting. A lot of the plot relied on the listener imagining what actions were taking place. Though the sound effects and the background voicing helped, I was still a little confused with what has happening, not to mention some fantasy vocabulary threw me off without much explanation. With mixing, the biggest issue was space. I think there could have been more reverb, not just in general, but some variation on it to represent space between characters and not just volume variation, for example when the deep ones are attacking and they’re supposed to be far away but then suddenly that main one approached and was really close up? Lastly, though your acting could be worked on to sound more real, it sounds like you knew what your characters were; you just need more exaggeration with some and then fine tuning with others. But, nice idea for a story and a great dramatic approach. Good work!

Tonash responds:

Thank you very much for the detailed review!

I will definitely take your words to heart and try to improve in the future! :D

Hey Tonash, i thought the fact how someone else`s art inspired you to create your own dramatic composition was pretty cool. The effects along with all the music immersed the whole experience. The script was great, and you do possess the kind of voice to carry this kind of material. The whole ``light of the sun, is no more`` opening voice with the background wind was awesome work, though i think the dwarf voice over work was not as strong, and the accents got a bit messy. Overall i thought you did a great job the script and story was concise and the threat of battle was well communicated. Keep refining your voice over skills, good luck with this!

Tonash responds:

I agree that some of Gimble's lines got a little messy; albeit dwarfy accents are usually more rocky/grumbly than usual.

Thanks again.

This is astonishingly inspirational skit you have done! It's such a complement for you to imagine and be inspired to create a narrative from my music. If anything, it's the ultimate complement because you are using it the exact way I had hoped for it to be used, in a story based setting.

I love how you get into character and really go all out to make each feel like their own. Absolutely fantastic! I can't thank you enough for feeling driven by the track. it must have been a challenge to time your script with the audio, something I thought you did really well in.

Thank you so much! and keep up the great work! Fav'd and Followed!

Tonash responds:

Thanks so much man! :)
It means a lot coming from you!
