Sir Galahad, Act 4 @ 4:51

And there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
woah indeed, a powerful and emotional finale. :cry: A very strong performance here, Adrian, well done. Galahad switches effortlessly from the hunkish bloke to the determined knight with a mission. :thumbs: I loved every minute of it even though the plot is really tragic.

Act 3 is straight PL ok.

For Act 4 somehow you missed quite a few lines though...so you have to get back into character for a final round ;)

> at about 3:10: (p. 86) missed line: "Did they see you ?"
> at about 3:18: (p. 86) missed line: "Ah ! Sibyl !"
> at 4:37: (p. 89) repetition of the final lines. Is there one version you prefer ? If so, you can cut out the other one

thanks for this excellent job !

Happy morning of recording today. Polished off narrator acts 2, 3 and 4. All ready for PL.
wow great job, and in so short a time. :thumbs: Thank you so much, Michael, Todd is always happy to start assembling early and the stage directions are needed for the framework.

Act 4 is already PL ok, but I found two small notes to correct in the other acts:

Act 2:
> at 1:34: (p. 64) "he takes Em's unsuspicious hand" – you already say "kisses" here, but at this point he only takes it, the kissing comes later. Maybe the dramatic effect is better if he doesn't kiss it twice, but first only holds it, while discussing matters

Act 3:
> at 10:01: (p. 82) "Em, grimly" – you forgot to say "Em" here, as it's at the beginning of the speech

great job all in all :clap:

When I went to the upload page, it didn't ask me to logon again as librivox, which I suspect means that the upload was under my own BC account. As the system wouldn't give me the option of using the generic upload account, even after logging out and back in again, I forced it to behave by switching to a different browser entirely. That worked, so far as I can see.

I wonder where uploads made to a different BC account go to? :hmm:

it's not the login that is important, but the correct MC you need to choose from the drop-down menu. Did you choose Todd there ? Otherwise it may have landed in another MC's folder.

The best is always to copy the link the uploader gives you and paste it back here, then we can see what you did and where you put it.

It's still not uploaded, could you please try again and copy the link ?

Thank you

Sonia

Very strange. Yes, I did choose Todd. I've done it again, and here are the URLs from the uploader.:

:shock: yikes, ok I see what went wrong. You called your file "galahadjones" instead of "narrator". With that you now overwrote Adrian's files for the main character. :? I see indeed that you uploaded 2 times with that name.

Careful with the filenaming here !

Here is what you could do: please reupload with the correct name: galahadjones_narrator_2_128kb and galahadjones_narrator_3_128kb, then your files at least should be good.

I will try to clean up the confusion and restore Adrian's files this evening when I can get into Todd's folder.
