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!
