Thanks for the file!

since this is a DR and what you deliver are not the final files, we don't need the _128kb at the end for the individual roles. :D
Cheers,
Ava.

OK...I don't get the tech talk, but I understand well enough to satisfy this Luddite soul. :shock:

O -- when I said I want to make sure section 1 is OK before I do more sections, it's because this is my first DR project, and I want to make sure I'm doing it "right" with the first round, before I drop more rounds on you. :D

...O, AND...
Since this is DR, I would like to think that my reading is appropriately "entertaining," and so I'd like to know how I sound to other ears -- i.e., a little constructive criticism is always welcome. :D

...in this regard...
Should I just wait for someone to PL section 1?

Since we don't have a DPL at this point, I have to do the PLing myself for now, which will take a bit longer than usual I'm afraid. I'm very busy at work, and my environment is rather noisy at the moment. It's actually quite hard to find half an hour of quiet time to PL this against the text...

Anyway,

your intro is PL OK! - actually it's word perfect! :clap:

Nice reading, very good spacing between the lines, you don't need an outro to the file (because it'll be cut anyway) but do leave those couple of seconds at the end. Very well done!

Since you're asking for Constructive Criticism:
You sound as if you're giving a very serious lecture to a very serious group of elderly experts who know 10x as much as you do about the subject. :lol:
In fact, you are talking to your cousin (and your aunt). You can RELAX, you're with family! :D I like the seriousness in your tone, but if you can move a bit towards a more conversational mode, I think it would sound better once everything is cut together.

Careful with the file names in the future - I have moved your finished file downwards; the next one should be artist_charlotte_02 nonetheless :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

No problem with the timing; I'm not in a hurry!
And yes, I try to make "everything" I do for LV word perfect. :D
As to the tone ... I didn't realize I sounded quite so serious! :shock:
Is it really that extreme?
Believe it or not, I am generally pretty relaxed... 8-)
I think the serious tone is partly because I read aloud slowly -- otherwise I tend to trip over words, skip words, etc.
And I have an academic background.
But I'll definitely keep the advice in mind.
THANK YOU...LJB
(Here's a threat: I might end up redoing the Intro.)

It's not extreme at all, and especially in the first section with Mommy present and everything, I think it's okay. And maybe it's the first time Charlotte is doing the teachy-stuff.
It's hard to deduce how old Charlotte is in comparison to Ellen, but as I said: you're her (older?) cousin, not her governess ;-)

It's quite difficult to read a conversation, and here the individual lines are pretty long too. And maybe Charlotte is just a more serious person to begin with, not everybody is happy-happy-joy-joy all the time.

No need to reread
that section, better forcus on the future ones (it's no fun redoing a section and re-PLing the whole thing is no fun either. :wink:)

What part of academia are you coming from?
Cheers,
Ava.

HA! It may well be Cousin Charlotte's first teachy gig. :lol:
I think of Charlotte as young-ish adult, and Ellen as mid-teens.
I teach law school classes, some of which are "scary" and others more "fun"...LJB 8-)
