View Full Version : Character Kirbz Demo Reel
06-26-2012, 10:17 AM
I'm always in the process of recording, trying out new lines, and trying to improve, so maybe I can approach improving from a different angle with your help!
Here are the current Demos:
1. Cartoon DEMO (https://www.box.com/s/85538e8d65aa29efae71) OR http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNyU1jWbDGE
2. Character DEMO (https://www.box.com/s/b2e1807e7bd4890d59f3) OR http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkMeiy_y7fY
Each Demo serves a different purpose, the first is more for ranges and character. The second is more fast paced and...cartoony o.O
I took the critiques from the Character Demo and fixed the problems for the Cartoon DEMO (hopefully). Should be interesting to say the least :)

Bump! Any and all critiques are appreciated!

I think you panned it so that the majority of the voice came out of the left side hah. It's hard to get a good judge of your performance as that's a little distracting.
I do think the 3rd voice needs could be cut out. It's a bit forceful and doesn't really quite have enough personality to add much to the demo. Overall the best one was the first voice though. Feel free to project a bit more though as it sounds like your trying not to be too loud.
One more suggestion is to use slightly shorter lines, also place the lines a bit closer together because the pause after each of your lines can get distracting as well.

Thank you very much!
Audacity seems to place more emphasis on the left side by default for me, or something, I don't know. I never caught that. However, I did find a way to fix it, so thank you! The orc voice is placed there for two reasons: i) to showcase my lower range and ii) to show a different character in terms of race (orc) and age. For this demo reel, I wanted something where I took 4-5 characters that showcased range and emotion. To do this, I think its important to give each character enough "screen time" to flesh it out and allow it to breathe, so the listener can get a feel for each character and whether or not I can continue the charade lol. I will try to blend the music together so the time between the voices is less distracting though!
Thanks again, that critique was a great help!

I think that if you had used shorter lines with more voices of different textures, pitch and variety, it would have left more impact. It felt a bit slow, to me.

Thanks for your feedback! I'll probably put together a cartoon demo reel with a faster pace, but that's for later. Still thank you :)

I'm not able to view it.. Maybe it's blocked in India?

Added a youtube link, just in case :)

Yay! It's fixed! xD
On topic :
I really enjoyed listening to your character demo reel. You portrayed a whole bunch of emotions there ("I had only so many pieces to work with" and "don't look at me like that" being some of my favorites)
Your cartoon reel was funny and refreshing.. I lol'ed at ''let me tinker' and wait.. I actually lol'ed at most of the lines.. xD I only heard a little bit of clipping in the first line.. Other than that, great acting and scriptwriting! :)

Ah thank you! I was warned about the clipping on audacity, I obviously payed no heed!
