Over A Thousand Hits
Well, I must have missed it actually happen but this week the blog reached over 1000 hits, which is in a lot of ways, very gratifying.
So what news is there today? Not lots, I’ll admit. Am working on other projects – none of which are my own – and spending loads of time doing that. I have managed to tally up though how many dialogue edits I’ve done and am impressed that many episodes are looking in good shape, with Episode 1, 4, 5, and 7 receiving the most dialogue edits and feeling the most complete. I decided to edit the scenes out of order for a reason – namely so that it didn’t sound like there was a progression of technical quality as the listener made their way through the episodes. It is an old video editing trick too, this kind of non-linear approach, and one which I am pleased to use time and time again. Plus, a lot of material still needs to be recorded and so some episodes are heavy on the missing content.
The good news is that I believe I’ve managed to cast yet another role – that of Ingebjorne, henchwoman to Malice and the “voice of the pleasure sound” – a nod to an old comedy idea created long ago by Michael and Jane, but given form and substance in this new personification. Once the part has been recorded – scheduled for the first week of March – I’ll be doing a profile on the woman behind the character and her thoughts on the whole process. But until then, “mum” is the word… or I suppose if we’re talking pleasure sounds… maybe “bum” is the word… oh I don’t know – this is all beyond me!
I want also take this opportunity to send out a thank you to people who have been coming back to this blog time and time again to check on the progress of the series.
