Section 5, Squarky-woo, notes:
Fix file name in accordance with the above instructions in this project thread. In addition, make sure the designation is 05 which is the Section Number for Squarky-woo
Re-record the intro to match exactly the script above in this project thread.
0:25 shorten silence to .5 second between end of intro and 1st sentence. Right now it is 5 seconds.
7:07 should be "To his intense surprise"; I heard "Intense surprise"
11:54 Re-record "is just as pure-minded as the day that he was born" which is obliterated by loud interference.
23:25 Re-record "Then she flicked her tail and ... End of Section 5". All of which is obliterated by loud interference.
Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.
Thanks!
Christine
