Voiceovers from Philip Banks and Jack Parell

When we started the project, it was clear avoiceover will needed (however if it developed in such directions where voiceover is only taking something away, we’d loose it) .
Again, the most beneficial website for this wasvoiceover.co.uk where I found a variety of choice in categories (mature voice,ageless, deep etc. )
Asking politely I introduced our group projectand the course projects ( a showcase 2011 was very handy here). Also, and importantly,let them understand we are students so possibly they could take it as an unpaidproject.
It seems we’re on a true luck, because all of the three replied immediately. After few hours we had one recording by Philip Banks, and still one more soon to come.
So here it is:

Several versions from Jack Parnell:

    exciting - am loving the American accent "the one you feed" - nice. Your voice over feels as if it should happen before the animation starts - and again I'm left wondering if you could combine this calmer mood with an establishing shot first of the doll (There's a fight going on inside me) which then travels backwards quickly, pulling back through just the suggestion of the space, so that the voice over finishes as the camera arrives at the wolves on the 'start line'

    "The one you feed" - and then, they're off running...

    Yes! That's a great suggestion! Because today we were speaking...that the voice over seemingly takes something away when aplied over the animation...

    And yeah, the second video, the other voice acter got back to us. I think he's even nicer :D Had ... a native american tribe leader sense to it :D

  2. Hey JJ & Leo,

    For me, the second voice artist is too homely-sounding. There is something really effective about how the first guy says 'feeeeed' that I like. Anyway - time to hit the animatic stage again - try incorporating the voice-overs and see what it changes/transforms/buries...
