Yup, I fixed the line! I don't want to drift from the text too much if I can help it.

Now I have Sebastian and Caliban left. Which means every file I hand in from now on may result in a new scene being made ready to edit. :? I wonder how to go about doing this without overwhelming everyone LOL.

well it had to happen at one point LOL I think we shouldn't stress ourselves. When scenes are ready to be edited, I hope each of us claims a share and then we'll give us some time to edit them.

OK, fair enough. :) I couldn't resist doing Caliban next. I have one file ready; if the voice is satisfactory, I shall continue on.

(I can also edit this scene, since I'm guessing I will have to blend the burthens together)

I had time this evening to edit 1.2, so instead of making you PL both Caliban and the scene, you can now just PL the scene. :mrgreen:

And now Sebastian is done. Which means, I am done!

The voice is risky, because I pinched my nose and made him hellishly nasally. But the result is what I hoped for: a highly unpleasant sound for a highly unpleasant man. Plus, it's completely distinct from the low-pitched growling of Caliban and the wafting, virginal piping of Ferdinand. 8-)

Looks like all roles are in. :mrgreen: If we're diligent with editing, this may be the quickest Shakespeare we've released yet.

Speaking of editing, I will claim 1.1 for now, since it requires merging the mariners. I think that may be the last scene that would need voice merging? I can claim one more scene after that, but preferably a shorter one, since 1.2 was a biggie and took me over two hours to complete. :shock:

The procedure for this one will be a bit different, because Acts 4 and 5 would be edited right away instead of being pasted together. For those, I will "finalize" what is edited before Sonia PLs, in addition to pasting together and finalizing Acts 1-3. So whoever edits those simply has to post the link here, and I will mark it in the MW when it's ready for final PL.

the pinched nose is a strike of genius :lol: but it must have been awfully difficult to record all this that way. You remind me a bit of a loonytune character, maybe the duck ? :hmm: I think, although he had a lisp on top, or was that the cat ?

Anyway, both Sebastian and Caliban are wonderfully portrayed. You managed quite a deep pitch for Caliban, excellent.

All PL ok, except for one small note in Caliban 2.2.:

> at 0:49: “sometime am I all wound with adders” – I would say this should rhyme on “hound” because it’s adders winding around him. If they were wounding/hurting him, it would be “wounded” not “wound”, I think

Great job Tomas !

and a great job on this huge final scene as well, Brad. Totally flawless. Prospero has a dignity in his voice that I quite well like. :thumbs:
PL ok.

That means all the parts are in and all the Scenes are up for grabs to be edited. Please post here which scene you want to take care off. For the moment I only keep my one scene I already claimed on Friday. I didn't find the time to edit that one yet and I am currently flooded by PL jobs. So I'll claim the next when I finished this one first.

I don't think we need to rush the editing phase as some scenes are quite long. But if each of you could already take one, that'd be helpful.

Sonia
