Great! Listen, folks, don't hesitate to send me a private message or something if there is anything else you need from me. I'm sorry to say I haven't been visiting the forum much due to an intentional effort to stay off the computer and go outside more often! 8-) But I don't want to neglect any of the stuff I need to be doing here, so please keep me posted - thanks! :thumbs:

Here is the Dramatis Personae! I maybe should have checked, but I just did it in the order they were in the character list, I can change it if you want a different order.
Time: 2:28

PL notes:
- there's a really weird spot at 1:35 where the reader's postcode and location appear to be included? I'd suggest cutting this out. Nobody else has it and the number leading in sounds really strange.
- the last two characters are both read by Leanne Yau, I'd suggest combining these into "Girl", "Gossip" read by Leanne Yau. It sounds laboured to have two minor character voice credits read in full by the same person.

Yeah, I would agree that both of these points need to be changed.
So in the final version of the DP, Leanne's last two voice credits would be combined to: "Girl, Gossip read by Leanne Yau."

Exciting to see this in the editing stage. Great job to each of you who are still working on this project. I know it is a lot of work!

just so y’all know, my brother is visiting for a couple weeks, but I expect to get to a lot of editing after he leaves (July 7) since we are spending a lot of time together while he is here.

Chapter 6 is all edited, but it is 1:14:43 so does it need to be split up?

Yeah, unless you want to change the tempo 3% or so. It shouldn't be a noticeable difference, but should just squeak you under 72 minutes. Either that, or you could try tightening up things a fraction of a second here and there. :hmm:

72 minutes is what fits on a regular audio CD, so that's our length limit.
Mystery/PulpFic: Dope, by Sax Rohmer
The one that started them all: Self-Help, by Samuel Smiles
Elizabethan Poetry: The Psalmes of David
Boring works 30-70 minutes long: Insomnia Collection 5
Short essays: Elia, and The Last Essays of Elia
