Off to a good start! I mashed up two awesome animals of our kingdom to create a unique sound for the hideous monster featured in Sonic the Hedgehog #252! Go and find out what 'it' sounds like, and it's nowhere near the sound of Cream's cuddly Tails Doll.
Sneak Peak...!! (StH#252 At All Costs!)
LISTEN TO A MINI PREVIEW
Yup, I'm already working on the next one! Let's begin the campaign to complete the 'COUNTDOWN TO CHAOS' 'feature film length-ed' comic drama (I'll be giving myself 3-4 years to work on it).
Sonic Archie AUDIO BOOK (The Soldier - StH#254)
[DOWNLOAD THE MP3 via Darkspeeds' Soundcloud]
This is probably my best audio production of the Sonic Archie series yet.
I'm super pleased with my voice acting and I'm proud of my audio production. It's been a real blast recording, constructing, and editing this.
I want to thank once again to my team of voice actors for helping me out playing the roles of their respective characters on this audio book of StH #254.
I have a lot of favourite moments on this audio book but the one that will get me every time is when Sonic gets a taste of that nasty 'mystery gas' almost rendering him near-close to becoming a Werehog. I really like how I showcased a moment of genuine suspense - almost a hint of horror to the aesthetics of the scene.
Here's my feedback to the voice actors:
i) Mmicheal154 (I loved his 'YOSH' when he jumps on the plane, and his awesome "And now you know why I AM the BEST!" line after causing havoc at sea). Mike is no doubt one of the hardest working of my team. Even when it didn't sound right at the start he took some time off and did retakes of Dr. Eggman till it sounded perfect. On one of the retakes where he did the laugh at the end he even got to a point where he laughed out in pain - genuinely (and not intentionally) hurting his lungs! Yeowch! I don't want him to do that ever again!
ii) Tasha (aka Donniegirl12) maintained a consistent Tails throughout the audio drama - I'll consider her always to be my official Tails in any comic/audio drama that I work on based off the Archie comic series, she's that good. In fact she's amazing as Blaze the Cat and as Roll from the Megaman series (check out her Cold Crush comic drama and you'll see why)!
iii) Mobi played as Muttski and it's really good to hear a fresh voice for once - young, vibrant and innocent. Mobi did the goods and brought Mobi to life, making him sound more adorable than ever. The bloopers he sent to me was a treat cuz it's especially great to know that the person is really enjoying themselves while they're doing their recordings!
iv) Ashie-kins, oh god, I spelt her name wrong in the credits - 'doh!!' Anyways I was in the search for a decent sounding Nicole many months back when the project was on it's early stages and lemme tell you, it ain't easy to find one! Pleasant sounding Nicoles are quite a rarity along with a competent sounding Rotor the Walrus. But when Ashley approached me for the role she really delivered. I more than happy to have her back as Nicole anytime!
v) Evan Stanley played as Bunnie "Rabbot" D' Coolette, just like she did a couple years back on Sonic The Hedgehog #217-218 Comic Drama - [A Rabbot Reunion]. Once again she did a lovely job as the Southern Belle' on this particular issue, it isn't easy trying to role play her when she's on espionage mode cuz there's a lot less freedom to express openly like she is in her casual state via dialogue. It was amusing the listen to Evan's bloopers, she makes an effort to get her lines right and I'm glad that, in the end, they made it to the final production.
Nevertheless it's been great having you guys on board this project.
And to the fans who love the comic and follow this niche community of Sonic comic drama/voice acting/audio drama/dubbing of the Archie Publications series thanks for tuning in! hope you enjoyed the process and perhaps in the near future I'll be making a 'COUNTDOWN TO CHAOS' movie edition that spans for almost 2 hours.
Stay way past cool everyone! Till next time! *thumbs up*
Jesus! It's 20 minutes long!!!
And now I'm currently doing a sound quality check before I upload it on both the Youtube and Soundcloud accounts (at Soundcloud you can download it for free)!
Keep in mind that this is PURE AUDIO - treat it like an AUDIOBOOK.
In future I'm thinking of doing a comic drama out of it but... I have much bigger plans than just that when I go back to Australia... >= D
Get ready for some 'Countdown to Chaos' action!!
Okay! 90% complete with MOBIAN THEATRE: The Soldier (full audio book). Gonna go get me some dinner first, then come back to finish the rest! It's sounding pretty darn awesome so far!
Voice actors who got involved include: Mmichael154 (as Dr. Eggman), Tasha (as Miles 'Tails' Prower and Blaze the Cat), (as Nicole), (as Ben 'Mutt' Muttski), and (as Bunnie D' Coolette).
And as for Sonic the Hedgehog, Orbot, Cubot, Uncle Chuck and Antoine D' Coolette, Mr. took the initiative to voice those characters, just cuz he can!
Hope to get it complete late in the evening - if not, by next morning the latest!
