Vampire Cat is ready for final PL.
the Vampire Cat is totally PL ok. Somehow we all managed to give it the creepy feeling that the play wanted to convey. To only short comic relief is the vying for speech rights that Buzen and Ruiten were struggling with :lol: Excellent job, all of you, excellent assembling, Todd.

That leaves one final play !!! This is quite a diverse collection. :9:

OK, so here's the deal...

I sat down to record my part for this. And my microphone wasn't working. I soon realized that the mike mixer was dead. So I ordered a new one ($91) from Amazon (same model as I had). It comes two days later. I tried it out --- as an experiment, I try the old mixer using the power supply from the new one --- it works. I record my pieces for "Every Man in His Humour". I order a cheap power supply ($8) from Amazon, and after receiving that, return the new mixer (small restocking fee, but they take it back, no problem). I then go to record Cutaway, and again the mike is now working. If a wiggle the cable, I can record some noise, but nothing from the mike itself. I realize that mixer -- using the cheap generic power supply --- is not providing the "phantom power" the mike need. I order a "1-Channel 48V Phantom Power Supply with Adapter" from Amazon ($16). It arrives on Friday...

And now, finally, Mr. Cutaway...

Also, I guess it a bit later now that Availle has already recorded the Narrator, but finally wrote to my friend who work at the theater company which just stage "Charlie's Aunt" and ask him about the stage directions. He response:
As for your Stage Direction question, I personally was stumped. The AD for that show isn't here at the theatre, but I mentioned it to our Education and Casting Associate (Rebecca Feely) and she seems to think they are references to set pieces that would have been laid out in a key at the end of the play (similar to how today's scripts have a ground plan and a prop list). So, "A." might have meant "Sofa", so instead of "H walks around the Sofa" the stage direction becomes "H walks around A". So, without a key, you may never really know what some of those things mean.

:shock: That's very interesting!
Thanks for sharing this piece of info. Good to know that there was no need to overthink this. :D

Edit: If you're editing this play, you don't really need to send in your own role. Just send in the whole piece - it will be easy to re-do any missing lines. :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Well, I figured someone else should PL it.

I can PL it all when it is fully assembled. Since you are the last role coming in AND the editor, I figure there's not need to do double-work in this case. Most often the editors wait for all the roles to come in, then upload their part in the finished file already.

wonderful news. That means we might even make it in time for the one-year-birthday of this project. :D I'll PL it as soon as it's up.

Thanks, James

Hmmm.. That gives me to the end of the day.... Don't think I'm going to make that, but soon after... Fortunately, unlike recording parts, editing is something I can do on a laptop on the train to work.
