Don’t panic yet guys, I haven’t got into professional voice acting career yet, xD
It’s like this. My friend is studying in the [Business Information System] Major, and it is one of her course requirement to do some flash animations. She had most of her work done and all she needs now is the finishing touches and adding the voice. Sound Effects can be created or downloaded from the internet any time. However, she still need some one to voice the story. Being short on people, she asked me to help out, claiming that because I have experience in story writing, I would probably be able to help her out.
It sounds like fun so, obviously, I decided to help her out.
The story goes like this.
The young Soul Reaper (voiced by me) has just become the new ruler of the underworld because the previous ruler, his mother – Granny Obaba, already retired. However, other Reapers do not seem to give him the respect that he wants. Because of that, he decides to get rid of his mother and orders his ‘best’ assassin to do it.
The assassin, Karen, sneaks into Granny Obaba’s private onsen resort with her almighty scythe, but she screwed up and was captured. Granny turned the almighty scythe into a weird … flamingo thing (also voiced by me) … and Karen can no longer fulfill her mission. Granny told Karen that if she wants her scythe back, she must help the mother create another onsen. Karen has no choice but to follow Granny’s order. In the end, Karen travels around and creates the onsen with the help of the flamingo scythe. Both of them quickly become friends even though they had a couple of fights. At the end, Karen hesitates whether or not she wants the scythe to turn back because she felt attached to the flamingo.
The story ends with Granny Obaba trolling her son, by telling him that his plan fails.
So yeah, that’s the story, lol.
My friend was a pretty good director too, and this makes the whole experience unique to me. The recording session was about 2 hours in my university’s studio soundproof room. I was really excited because this place really looks like those professional studios where the voice actors record their voices for animations and video games. I can’t help but imagine what it would be like if one day, I became a director for my fiction’s movie and get to direct the voice actors like this, lol.
Obviously, I had lots of fun and I really look forward to seeing the completed work. Unfortunately, the session was done in Thai and she will need to do the English subtitles for this, so it’s gonna take a while. Once its done, I asked her to give me a copy and I’ll show the finished work to you guys. xD
