As for the line delivery. I always... ALWAYS ask if the lines work for the directors... I am ALWAYS willing to redo lines if they dont work, but she told me they were great the way they were. So for my "acting.." I feel like I gave her a different look at herself and a different look for the audience.. not someone whos highpitched and whiny. For the most part I TRY to follow the rhythm of the voice in the video so it has the same flow... but I am not Laura Bailey. Serah I dont think, needed any more energy than I gave her... it was a quiet, reflecting moment that didnt need any explosive outbursts of emotion. But that's just me.
Again, thank you for the honest critique... and I would enjoy a chance to work with you aswell.
Going for a different kind of approach was what I liked most about your choice of tonality and read. You took a risk and allowed for your own acting skills to craft the role for yourself. That's very important in acting in general and certainly applaud you for it. I know Holly was satisfied with your performance. We all know that we can only give what the director wants, and if they're happy, then we've done our due service. I don't count that (or Holly's direction) against you at all. =]
Please don't take my suggestion for "energy" like how so many newcomers describe it. I don't mean it in a sense that you needed to be gushing/over-the-top to compensate for bad acting. There were a number of lines, moreso nearing the end, that I do believe could have been livened up a bit rather than maintaining that matter-of-fact approach all the way through. Consistency isn't a bad thing, but based on the script provided, I simply think it would have been okay to take a livelier, more sincere turn at times while still keeping true to your character tone, pacing, and uniqueness.
I do hope we can find a chance to work together for sure. =]
Cydonia As Vanille - I really love your rendition of Vanille, Cydonia. A more solemn like this definitely calls for an more down-to-earth approach, and you definitely delivered that here. All of Vanille's sorrow, regret, and fears were greatly felt through your performance, and moreover came through as real and genuine; something I thought the official English VA failed to deliver. [It was just too preppy-happy for me] Wonderful job.
Kauritsuo As Serah - I thought your deeper voice was a nice change for the character. I always imagined Serah to have a younger and youthful voice to showed her delicate and slightly vulnerable side as opposed to her sister, Lightning. But I did enjoy listening to your version a lot. I thought you did a great job, but perhaps a bit more energy in some of your lines as I did feel there was something missing from the performance. I'm sure you are well aware of this; nevertheless, wonderful job~!
Murdog As Snow - I love it. I thought you kept the toughness intact and still was able to show that bit of vulnerability. There wasn't much to go on here, but you definitely came through. Wonderful job to you, too!
Mixing-wise, it was well done~!
I could of punched up the performance probably, but I never know untill I hear it all together in a clip anyway, so what can yah do. haha.
