Hello,

A few days ago, I came here to ask for help in order to make a small animated short film. I needed a voice actor, and wasnt long before some of you replied, captainsnazz and Shirate sent me theire recordings, and in the end I chose Shirates version.

Well, the job is done and heres the small shortfilm -

Once again I have to thank all of you whom helped making this shortfilm.

Enjoy =)

My thoughts, in order:

1. "Aww, man... I wish I could've done this."

2. "Well, I don't have any proper recording equipment anyway..."

3. "I'll watch the video."

4. "I'm glad I didn't do it because it wouldn't have been nearly as good."

Seriously. I really liked that. The voice work was great, the animation was unique, and the writing was good too.

I'm sort of a freak when it comes to voice acting, so maybe I'm just being weird, but something about the way he said "breath" at the end was nice. Also, the echo-like effect on the voice, did you do that or was that Shirate's doing? I'm assuming it was you, looking at the credits. I'm just curious.


I also liked how the animation turns to mostly black and white once the man decides to seek out the witch. It's almost as if the moment he made his decision to do whatever it took to save his daughter, all the was bright left his life.


Good stuff in my unprofessional opinion.

Wow, that was fantastic, really. All the other films I've seen you post were good too. Puts the one I briefly took part in last week to shame.

This is really good. Would you be interested in collaborating on your projects? I am a film composer and would love to have a chance to score music for a great short film like this one.

Writing's not that great, good animation and voice acting though. It's well done, but the writing really took a lot away from it, especially the end.

Yeah. I ended up not really paying attention to the story and just enjoyed the animation and the sound of the voice. Was good though. Watched it a 2nd time to actually catch the story though, lol..

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

The story was cliche and undoubtedly out-shined by the voice acting and animation, but I think that the way it was written was fine.

I mean, a deeply profound, unique, and thought-provoking story is great, but I think that's expecting too much from a 3-minute animation.

You're of course entitled to your opinion. I'm just saying that I think there's a difference between poor writing and a poor story.

Haha yeah, I watched it again to get another frame by frame examination of the animation. It's so great.

Wow, so many comments =)

*Shirate did the voice effects and all the voice effects.
-Shirate, I hope you dont mind me putting your name at the end*

*Xiaoxi - this one is finished, but Im in the making of another one that will come out June 5th. Im still thinking of story and how it will work out, but it would be great if I could place some unique soundtrack =)

Im not a writter, nor I read much (shame), but I liked the writting, altough I thought it was a bit too long.

Thank you all =) Glad you all enjoyed.

Once again Shirate, thank you very much

I was at surprised how good this was. The story was a little a little cliche and, for a lack of better words, maybe a little predictable. But the animation and voice acting was excellent. Still an awesome film, I'd watch more. Shirate should voice movie trailers.

I'd actually love to do more voice acting. I have a degree in audio production, which is why I have the fairly nice equipment I used to do this, and 'm getting a degree in opera performance. Still, I'd love to be a voice actor... I have many varied interests lol.

If you ever need anymore voicework ricardo, let me know

That's a little sooner than I anticipated lol.

Tell you what: I'm pretty busy for the next month or so with a lot of other things going on, but once that settles down, I'll be happy to discuss further projects. I'm going to PM you my email address so we can keep in touch.

It was really nice. Here's a trick if you don't know already: for these cinematic / trailer-style "low deep voices", record really really close to the mic.

I might need sooner than you expect I really loved your work, not only on the technical stuff, but you gave the right tone to it, and it just made it perfect.

I really think you could do this professionally, and if you enjoy it, Im pretty sure you can get there pretty soon.

Xiaoxi: Sure, on my next works ill let you know, and if you have time, we can work something out =)
