Oh dear! How can this be? a Conscience? Tsk, tsk - you'll never get anywhere with one of those!

PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

I know, I know, it's not how you brought me up, daddy. I don't know what's wrong with me these days.

Faubert act 2

That was fun :lol:
glad you liked your part, Alan, you definitely played him well and sleazy :mrgreen: even if in the end he tries to make some kinds of amends. He will go down as the villain in the story nevertheless ;) All PL ok in any case, thanks !

really good job Michael, thank you. You play Harold much more refined than I first pictured him, but that will make the difference between him and his wife so much the bigger and more interesting. So it was not a bad choice to give him this voice. :thumbs:

I have a few small corrections to add, but on the whole it was really very well acted. Only one important note for the next acts: please also leave at least 2 seconds of silence in between quotes, when stage directions break the flow of your speech. At many places you don't leave much at all. The editor has an easier task if the spaces are bigger where he has to make the cuts. No need to change it this time, let's not meddle more into the file, but maybe remember for the next two acts. :)

And here is what could be edited:

> at 9:20: (p. 16) "some unexpected arrivals disconcerted me" - there is a jump in the audio here, sounds more like you say "concerted"

> at 12:09: (p. 19) "I have just heard that M. Ribot" - could you say this abbreviation in full, as "Monsieur" (or "Mister" if you prefer), otherwise it sounds a bit odd

> from 12:13-12:15: (p. 19) between "the head of the factory" and "returns today", the pause is too long since it's the same sentence

thanks, and looking forward to the rest :)

Hi!

Thanks for the message! Yes, I had fun recording the lines for Harold haha. It's the first voice that came to mind and then I just took off haha.
Oh right. Of course, sorry for the lack of spaces :oops:

Awesome. Okay, how would you like me to correct the errors? Should I re-record the lines and send it as one file?

no please update your file in the spots I mentioned :) best keep everything in one file. Just use the same filename and the old file will be replaced by the new file.

Thank you

Your father ever so patiently awaits PL in the MW. Make sure it comes with brandy, will you?

Thanks, Todd

If you’re partial to rum, I could let you in on some Old Barnacle cheap.

Snookes.

daddy, really, it's not good for you liver... :| and nobody is buying your act of the doddering old devoted papa. Now when you were showing me the card tricks again, that was more like it, that's the old scoundrel I know. :lol:

Excellent job, Todd ! I have a certain picture of this guy in my mind, I cannot remember in which movie I saw such an actor, but it's totally like you played him. :thumbs: Interesting that you are switching roles here with Chris for once, usually he is bookmarked to the low-lives and now he is playing a love-sick aristocrat. Now this reversal of characters will give the whole play an interesting twist. :mrgreen:

Nothing to change in the old baron's performance, it's PL ok. This will be a fun play !
