Had a productive yesterday, finishing laying out the animation AND recording all the voices for the episode 6 movie. The animation for the episode weighs in at 202 MB in GIF format--nearly twice as much visual data as episode 5's 105 MB! Must've been all that animating gas. ;)|
Today and probably part of tomorrow is going to be taken up by processing the recorded voices, placing them in the animation, and then lip-syncing mouths to the words. I don't have the lines really cleaned up and balanced yet, but here are a few rough cuts of new character voices:
Auri the bartender -- Came up with an actual voice for him without having to resort to an accent. There are Sal-like overtones in this particular line, but I think of Auri's voice as that of an aging swinger still flying high on the rose-tinted glory days of a decadent youth.
Murphy the tragic trooper -- Evilly cocky. Poor Murph.
