Beyond the Western Deep: The Movie [OPENING PREVIEW!]
Man, the voice acting team and myself have been trailblazing in terms of progress for this project!
I'm really excited to present this webcomic series by Alex Kain and Rachel Bennett in comic drama format and showcase just how fantastic their story is.
Share this around with those who love stories of kingdoms and conflict, epic fantasy and engaging characters.
This movie is set for release for X-mas/New Year. This will depend on how Alex and Rachel go with Chapter 2. To play it safe I'll say that this will be ready by mid-JAN 2016.
When we hit the premier date I'll host an online gathering so that we can all watch it together and talk about the story and characters created by Alex and Rachel! Just like we had one for the Lackadaisy Audio Contemplation where Tracy J Butler kindly hosted the group chat!
Oh! And of course - HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone! ^^

Beyond the Western Deep: The Movie [THE CAST]
And there we have it, folks, after just ONE WEEK of auditions we come to a CLOSE for auditions.
A total of 14 cast members (including myself,) have been chosen out of 76 auditions! What an amazing week.
THANK YOU to everyone who have participated in the auditions - it was lovely to listen to your interpretation of the characters!
And now a MAJOR CONGRATULATIONS to the ones who have been picked to voice act one or more characters for the project!
I will tell you now that it's been a pleasure catching up with all of you for a Skype consultation these past few nights. It was fantastic meeting new talent and sharing the same enthusiasm for great stories like 'Beyond the Western Deep' and also the joys of voice acting.
Already some of you have COMPLETED your character lines and I'm IMPRESSED with what I've received, you haven't disappointed me.
The plan now is to have the rest of the voice files ready for AUDIO PRODUCTION. As soon as I get them within the week I can start working on the audio (which will take about a month) and have it ready towards the end of November.
If all goes according to plan with Alex and Rachel they should have CHAPTER 2 completed sometime in December where I can use the high res. files for the MOVIE editing ~ that should take about 1-2 weeks to complete.
I'm going to estimate the release date of the movie for X-mas or New Years 2016.
Anyways it's time for me to continue with further consultations with my CAST and finish recordings for my other role as HARDIN.
If you want to hear what I've recorded for the past hour then here it is - it's KING DABHEID! This is how I sound when I'm over 50!
Oh and one last thing! There is this awesomely talented musician and artist by the name of Hugo (aka ). During the audition week, I've been approached by him on deviantART and was told how he have embraced the story and art by Alex and Rachel after looking at my recent journal and he offered to do music for the project.
I've informed Hugo that I have the soundtrack that I needed for the project however after checking out what he can offer for COMMISSIONED MUSIC I couldn't help but get him started on working for a theme for 'Beyond The Western Deep'! It is currently in the works and so far the theme has a catchy melody!
My favourite commissioned composition of his goes to a recent webcomic that the team from have helped successfully publish - Uberquest (by Skidd and Phsuke aka ). Have a listen!
If you're interested in getting your own original music for your adventure/fantasy inspired webcomic (or any other project) then look no further - Hugo's rates are very reasonable for what he has to offer!
Toxodentrail's Music/Art Commission BoardAre you an artist looking for a musician, or are you a musician looking for an artist?
Or, maybe, you’re looking for someone who knows both.
Chances are you might know me as the titlecard artist for the internet show "The Webcomic Relief", the composer for the webcomic "Uberquest" as well the artist for the film-review youtube-channel "Sam's Channel"
I’ve been doing music and art commissions for a while behind the scenes, so consider this a reintroduction, if you will.
Perhaps you want a drawing of that character of yours from your story you're currently writing. Maybe even a catchy theme that fits to your liking.
Here are some examples as for what you'll expect from me:
Prices for art:
(Note: Sketches are very quick to make. It usually takes up to 10 minutes to create, depending on how much I draw. Colouring is free of charge)
To end this journal:
It's amazing what great stories can do - it brings awesome people together.
I managed to get the voice actors and Hugo hooked into the story, I hope that this project will get you all hooked too.
