Hearing Voices – Yet Again

Now that the Audio CD is off to a few folks for a crit review, things that are right and wrong with the CD master mix; my mind now wanders into the script for the movie. For the past week or so, the characters have begun speaking to me, at times keeping me awake most of the night. Each one in their own turn, or sometimes all at once, as to just how they feel the story should go.

Since this “mind sorting” has begun, a new character has now invaded my space in the script. He says he needs to be a part of the story to help show a complete conflict POV. The bastard is probably correct though, so he too will get his time on the pages of the rough draft. Of course when it comes to rewrites, that is when all of the characters really begin to fight with me on the pages in my mind. It happens every time I get closer to the final printing of FADE OUT.

So off into that wonderful blinking cursor and blank screen. It has been nine months since I have put anything creative on paper. Not to say that the Kat’s Tales book and Audio CD has not been a joy to work on, but those are Kat’s words, and I only infused my limited knowledge into the final production.

Although we are calling this film - adaptations to the original work, my characters are already telling me that is will only be based on that work. Like me, they have their own story to tell for Revealed Evil.
Can I Conceal Mine?

In the Can - Time to Recluse

Our last voice talent was here yesterday and the Audio CD is now in the can so to speak. Time to recluse and begin the post work on the stories.

Jason Thompson, stand up comic and voice actor wonder, was in our small rural studio yesterday to place his multi-faceted voice into the project. Kat and I had a date night on Saturday and listened to both Jason Thompson and Angry Patrick (Patrick Beam) perform. Both of these guys were spot on in their Comedic performances.

We also want to take the time to thank the other fine talents that performed for us as well.

Kyel Kidder
Lucas Corey - Yares
Michael Corey - Yares
Erin Yares
Alissa Brainard
Courtney Perry
Jason Thompson

All of these fine actors will be listed on our website in the future with a photo and a short Bio.

Well on to the post work and soon distribution. Then both Kat and I can get down to the task of adaptation for the short films. I am sure that those listed above will be a part of this next endeavor as well.

Heading Towards the Light

The last piece of pumpkin pie was eaten last night and the light is getting brighter at the end of a long tunnel. Things have become extremely busy not only with the past holiday, but also on finalizing the last of the voice talent adding their own character to the audio CD.

Courtney Perry was in the studio back on the 23rd of November and what a voice! Her interpretation of the characters was just spot on! I have just begun the editing on her vocal takes and should soon have some of it in the can.

We are planning for a late February or early March release date if all goes well.

Kat and I are both chomping at the bit to move on to the next stage of this project, the short films!
