Thanks!
That would be awesome! Thanks. :)

I am still finishing the editing of several DRs and I have American Cousin to do, but should have room for this.

All the best with this huge project!
Thanks, Larry, but Zach beat you to it by a few minutes. Still lots of other great roles available, though. If you fancy trying a kind of evil role, you might check out Luzhin. Otherwise, there's Zossimov or Lebeziatnikov.

Thanks, will do. I honestly hadn't noticed that. :oops:

I would love to read Katerina Ivanona. Complex, morally-ambiguous characters are fun, and moreso when they sing! ;)

Mary,

I can MC this for you . . . the MW is up.

cartek - Since this will be your first project as DPL, you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" (MW) in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

It's good to read the entire document so that you understand the respective roles of BC and DPL, but your focus will be on updating the status in the MW for the sections that you have listened to.

Guidelines on PLing for Dramatic Works are here: viewtopic.php?p=318667#p318667
Special proof-listening - Dramatic Works
-- Individual roles should be proof-listened against the text as soon as they are submitted. Note any differences (with the time)
-- Has the reader left out any lines? If so, post in the thread to have the lines recorded.
-- Are there any repeats, or serious stumbles that ought to be edited out of particular lines? If so, note the words and the time.
-- Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
-- Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
-- Final edited files should be proof-listened against the original source text (not Google docs).
-- Do the intro and disclaimer on final edited files match the instructions in the first post of the project thread?
-- Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording, as per the first post of the project thread?
-- Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of the file?
Please let me know if you have any trouble getting into the MW or if you have any questions along the way.

MaryAnn

As promised, here is the pronunciation guide with the names Mary gave me:

If you'd like more information on any of them or some other names, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks!

Mary,

I looked at the Porfiry entry in the Character list and discovered that it lists section 31, but there are no Porfiry's words in that section. Just something to consider when filling up the MW... Hopefully your procedure will resolve any possible issues like that. :)

Sigh ...... I guess I spent too much time studying the text to choose a part that I thought would be good for me. To be honest, I'm not that familiar with this book so I think I'll sit this one out for awhile and maybe take one of the smaller parts when things get rolling. Thanks for thinking of me.

MaryAnn:

Thank you! Will begin filling out the MW in a few hours.

Victor:

Thanks! I'll put the pronunciation guide in the first post now, and I'll double check the characters' chapters when I do the MW.

Larry:

Understand entirely. Best of luck with all your projects. :)

My accent isn't strong enough for me to feel comfortable using it - is that okay? :-)

Accent? You mean like a Russian accent? I don't really feel like accents are necessary for a work in translation, unless the character is said to have a specific one (like Amalia Ivanovna and her German accent). For Sonia, I'd say to use whichever accent you feel most comfortable with or you feel fits the part. :)

(Does that answer your question? I'm not 100% sure I understood it. :oops: )

About the accent thing, if I can do it, do you want it?

Up to you. I'd just as soon not, because I think it would be distracting, and I don't want to risk making it sound like a parody. But if you think it will add to your character without doing that, it's your call.
