Members voicing the characters
« on: June 22, 2013, 07:32:24 PM »
I finally decided to post an idea for a project I had in mind for quite some time now.

Well, the idea is to voice the characters of TLBT. This means:
- picking a movie to do the project(I'd like to start with the Original :))
- cast members( who will voice which character?), that'd mean the members who are interested in this project would have to send me some lines of all needed characters( I/we would choose the lines, e.g. Littlefoot's Mother: "Let your heart guide you..."). The recordings of your voices would be posted here so that everyone can help me to decide who is the best choice for a certain character( e.g. I wouldn't be a good choice for Ducky, I guess :P:).
- After all 'voice actors' had been casted, those voice actors have to record all lines of their character( I think this is the easiest way, isn't it? A live recording very likely won't work after all  :confused ) and send it to me or post it here so that I can complete the project...

There is a problem[/u][/b] though... Neither do I have the knowledge and the skills nor the programs to do the project... I hope someone can declair his/her willingness to do this   :exactly We need someone who is able to replace the original voices of the voice actors by our recordings of our voices.

I hope this will work, I really think it would strengthen the community :yes

So what do you guys think? :)

EDIT: Iris(Mumbling)will do the computer stuff I'm not able to do :)


Here's a list of all characters who need to be voiced :) I hope I haven't forgotten one..
character is free
not clear yet whether the member(s) will voice the character--> you can still ask to voice the character
the character is already taken by someone, the certain character can't be chosen anymore

Littlefoot:   Littlefoot1616, somerandomfangirl, Ducky123
Cera:   Darkwolf91
Ducky:   StrutEggStealer (inactive)
Petrie:   The Anonymous Person, Littlefoot1616
Littlefoot's Mother:  Mumbling
Rooter:   Dosu2Dinner
Narrator:   Belmont2000
Cera's Father:   The Anonymous Person

Script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n9Lb5eAjHI7sSLEoIWH3ck69h4fDFeP_WMIwS1WZ6BA/edit

Here's a little video guide on how to record your voice :)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_VI9SwTwqw

1. Get your microphone and plug it into your computer. Most laptops have build-in mics, but an external mic is almost always better quality.
2. Get Goldwave, a free recording program.
3. Do a test recording to make sure that your microphone works.
4. Talk along with the movie, print the script if necessary: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n9Lb5eA...dit?usp=sharing
5. Save the file as yourname - scene - littlefoot.wav (no need to install any codecs for mp3 or the like)
6. Send the files to me. Just contact me and we'll figure out a way to get the files to the right side.
7. Have fun :D

Feel free to send any auditions to Mumbling through Discord or by email via thelionqueen@live.nl

This could work. We had an audio book project for a while, that didn't work out so well. We could make it work with the first movie (I have all the editing skills necessary). The problem being however that there are a lot of lines. Perhaps starting with a shorter story, such as one of the tv series, would be easier to accomplish.

Or if you don't want to try to tackle a whole episode maybe a short scene, from a movie or tv episode so everyone involved will know what it's like and what's involved in doing this sort of thing.

So you would do the editing, Iris? Biggest problem fixed, yep, yep, yep :)
I agree that we should start with something shorter than the original. Refering to Kor's idea I suggest to use the original but to do scene after scene, not necessarily chronological. We could start with a scene like the scene where Littlefoot, Ducky, Petrie and Spike managed to get food together while Cera didn't manage to get food until Littlefoot helps Cera... I think this scene is interesting to start with since we'd have the main cast( the Gang) in it so we can choose the voice actors for the most important characters first :yes

Right, in that case you'd have to find suitable voice actors and make a list of who is to say what ;)

Alright, so I ask the obvious question :lol Who would like to voice a character? I can't promise you'll get the character you wish to have, your voice should (veeeeeeeeeery roughly) sound like the character you'd like to voice ;)
Furthermore, which scene would you like to start with? It should be from the original movie if possible :yes
Maybe we can do a poll to vote on suitable scenes to start with :yes

I am willing to join in, I have a relatively deep female voice. I guess I could also pass for a young guy. Give me any character that suits :)

Perhaps you can edit your first post with the characters playing in the first movie and combine those with interested members.

I'm willing to give this a shot, considering I can do quite a lot of voices (despite my middle baritone voice)! I'd be willing to play Petrie, if possible. I can really do it!

EDIT: I'm considering playing the few lines that Cera's Dad has as well...

Then maybe Littlefoot's Mother would be the best option for you, Iris :)

My voice is fairly deep baritone, so I'm not sure it's fit any of the characters. Would love to contribute if I could, though.

I'd be up for it! What better chance to get in on a LBT movie than to am-dram the voices. My voice is fairly flexible to a point. Apparently I do a good impression of Mo which is odd considering how high his voice is. Kinda middle toned, male voice but willing to have a go at stretching to fit the character. Anyone from the kids to the adults; I don't mind.  :D

Sure, this sounds like a cool project! I have a fairly deep female voice, but like Iris, could do a young male, and can also push up the pitch a bit. I'm not too sure of what character I could do, though.

To those of you who are not sure which character your voice might fit best yet: I'll write your names under the character list as 'still undecided'. I think we should wait one to two weeks and then start to plan the project. I will start a poll about which scene to start with at the weekend so we could concentrate on one scene of the Original movie (there are 16 after all :DD). The only question I have atm is: Just voting here in this topic (every participant of this topic having one, two or three votes?) or starting a poll where, technically, members who don't participate in this project can vote, too?

Making it a poll for everyone seems to be the most reasonable option here.

I've just prepared the very first part of the movie (with all the kids being born and the narrator) just to see how much work it'll be. I'll show the results later on. Low quality of course since we shouldn't be sharing too much or the GoF may be in danger.

Edit:
Alright, here goes nothing:

Audio only:

Example how voice-over would be put on by me:

PS: Narrator voice starts about 2:20 in normally.
PPS: Ignore the youtube account, I don't want another strike from universal so I uploaded it to one of my less important accounts.

What do you think?
