VAC 11 Judge Review:
This one had me laughing the hardest, no question. I just loved how reserved you were with your voice and how uncomfortable it made me feel. Honestly, it was all just so awkward and terrible that I loved it. When you said it was none other than Miz Tentacles herself, I was on the floor laughing. Alright, but to be more serious, the mixing needed a lot of help. There was a lot of crackling and vocal pops, which could be slightly lessened by talking more fully and maybe not being too close to the mic. I think the acting was actually accurate to the mood and your voice just sounds so unique like that. Nice awkward music choice and a creepy soundscape at the end. You are just one of those anomalies that your weird, awful style just works for you, in my opinion. Though the plot was really random and unclear, I still liked that it was...random and unclear. Nice job!
Hello. I also noticed quite a bit if static, pops and other microphone noises. As well as not being able to easily understand all that was being said, especially with Miz Tentacles.
What's left for me to address would be your range. While I was only able to really get a good listen to the childlike voice and the mother like voice I would say that they were very well done. Then we have the acting. The emotions behind the voices were all very similar in tone, which would mean, if we're listening to it from a voice acting standpoint, the case of blending emotions proves to be a bit of a setback.
I can appreciate the effort and the imagination put into this. A tantalizing story. It takes quite a bit of bravery to bring forth such a sexual array of imagery into a script.
I would like to be respectful and give you an honest score. Thank you sharing this with us and I hope that if voice acting is something you are very interested in that you will continue. :)
Oh yes, for sure, this was my first v.a. contest so hopefully I will get better!
Thanks for commenting on my own entry :)
I think you still have a lot to learn, but hey, where better to learn than in a community contest? First of all, you need to learn how to use your microphone better. It sounds like you're a little too shy to speak up, so you don't enunciate enough, which in turn makes it hard to understand you, and that's very important in voice acting: being understood. Your voice is far too breathy in the beginning. You'll want to back up from the microphone a little bit so you won't produce so many puffs and pops.
In addition to the issues I mentioned above, the effect that you used on Miz Tentaclez's voice made it even more difficult to understand, and I stopped paying attention halfway through her monologue. If you use vocal effects, you don't want them to be overpowering.
As for mixing, there's a lot of static, and noise removal can help reduce that. I also hear what I think is dishes clinking in the background? Next time, try to reduce as much background noise as you can to increase the quality of your recording. The music doesn't seem to fit the writing, either.
Anyway, good luck in the contest :)
Lol thanks, the dishes were on purpose, and my voice can't get any louder than that, lol.
hmm, but I thought the music fit, lol
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
