Also, it's a bit funny how narration and cinematography affect each other in the mix. For example, I think my delivery of the line "enjoy the ... conciliatory tones of Jeremy Soule's original soundtrack as their thread of prophesy is broken ... once again." was a bit awkward. I think I was expecting the clip to be more dramatic or something. I guess these little difficulties in collaboration are things that neither scrawl nor I have experience dealing with. Probably what I should do is keep several different recordings of lines like that and let the cinematographer choose the most fitting one.
I agree that part felt slightly strange. It's really difficult for me though to pinpoint what's wrong with it (especially after watching the same thing again and again during editing).

Perhaps we can try a different approach next time. I send you the unnarrated clips (loosely clumped together, not necessarily the final edit) and then you can record the voiceover while watching them?

Your throat and brain perform for us, dance you whore, dance! :D I hope all is well man! Get some sleep! :P

Thank you again for lending us your voice MrOpenMW. :D

And we're live! Thanks for the help and feedback everyone.

Now, another news post on the main site would be great.

I'm not sure if you guys are talking about the pre- or post- shortening edit version, but the version we have now doesn't have any awkwardness in it for me, it looks good. Sometimes you start second guessing yourself when you are the one doing the editing.

Video is posted up errwerr!!

Haha, that's a bit of an exaggeration. He might sound a bit less passionate than in the past (though I didn't really notice in the latest one) but not like a heartless machine :roll:
Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying

Ha! Thanks for pointing that one out :) I do sort of hear the resemblance.
