Need some help for a Christmas gift! (22)

1 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-08 08:29 ID:YlwS02Te

Okay, so I have an absolutely amazing fandom friend who has gone out of her way time and time again to help me and just be an awesome person. She lives in America (I'm in England), but is still sending me a Christmas present.

So I wanted to do something awesome in return.

I know she's always wanted one of her Torchwood fics made into audio. So I want to make it the best damn audio fic out there. We're talking sound effects, background music, the whole shebang.

I also really want to rope in different voice actors. Jack and Ianto are the main parts, so I'll need American and Welsh voice actors for those two in particular. There are also parts for Gwen, PC Andy, and Ianto's family (mum, dad and sister), all of whom are also Welsh. And then there's Lisa, Ianto's girlfriend, who I think had a London accent.

It's a pretty long fic, but I'd be grateful for any help that you could give. All you need is a microphone - I'll do all the editing and narration and all the jazzy bits, and if you want a copy of the finished product, I'd be more than happy to send you one.

Most desperately, I need somebody to do Jack's voice, because I don't know anybody who can do a decent American accent. But I need all the help I can get.

Email me if you're interested (, or post a message here. =D Help me make this an awesome Christmas gift!

Okay, so I've just scripted everything out, and the (rough) word counts are as follows:

Jack (American male): 1000 words
Ianto (Welsh male): 1200 words
Gwen (Welsh female): 500 words
Andy (Welsh male): 70 words
Lisa (London female): 100 words
Rhiannon (Welsh female): 20 words
Unnamed father (Welsh male): 80 words
Unnamed psychotic mother (Welsh female): 30 words

As you can see, some of them have hardly any lines, so even if you don't have much time to contribute, if you'd be willing to take one of those parts, I'd be very grateful. <3

I can't do a Welsh accent to save my life (although I'll probably have learned how to by February - school play is based in Wales), but I'd be happy to help you out :)

4 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-08 16:33 ID:YlwS02Te

>>3 That would be awesome. Do you have a microphone? Is there a particular part you're after? =3

5 Name: Lorze the Brookes : 2009-12-08 16:41 ID:ruDsoKI9

Lol, yeah I have a mic, probably Lisa would be best for me (even though I have a Yorkshire accent :P). I'll try and download Audacity at some point, that's a good recording program from what I've heard :) Won't be able to do much until probably Friday, though, this is my busy week :/ But after that, I'm pretty much free :)

6 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-09 08:24 ID:YlwS02Te

Audacity is a great program (it's what I'm using for the narration). D'you have an address that I can email the script to? That'd be easiest.

And no worries, just so long as it's done soonish. ^^

6 - Sorry I didn't reply yesterday, it was my exam Drama performance and I went and got drunk after :D - I'll PM my email addy to you via, it'll be safer that way :)

10 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-15 09:19 ID:5PTQRQj/

Okay, I really need help here. =(

Particularly with Jack - I know some of you must be able to do an American accent. BERMUDA DUDE, WHERE ARE YOU WHEN I NEED YOU?

And anybody willing to do one of the more minor parts will be loved, because I just can't get enough people. I need everything recorded by Friday at the absolute latest, because I need to have it edited by the 22nd to give it to her at Christmas.

C'mon, help a buddy out?

My welsh accent isn't great...but I'd be glad to help if I can.

12 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-15 10:25 ID:5PTQRQj/

That would be awesome. Do you have a microphone? And what gender are you, btw? Email me: so I can send you some lines.

13 Name: Lorze the Brookes : 2009-12-15 10:27 ID:ruDsoKI9

I haven't got the script yet, Audacity is downloaded and ready to use :) I'll get the recordings to you as soon as the script gets to me :)

14 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-15 10:30 ID:5PTQRQj/

>>13 Sorry, thought I'd sent it before. Emailed. =3

15 Name: Me, Myself and I : 2009-12-15 11:33 ID:bwGi09Ad

>>12 I have a microphone, and I'm a girl. :]

Annoyingly, my e-mail won't let me log in. >.<

16 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-15 11:41 ID:5PTQRQj/

>>15 If you're okay with playing the part of the psychotic mother, these are the lines:

“Stay away from me! You’re with them!”
“No! That’s how they keep me away! I won’t let you drug me!”

And also an anguished scream.

If you could record a couple of versions and send them to me when your email's back up, that would be great. =D

17 Name: Lorze the Brookes : 2009-12-15 17:01 ID:ruDsoKI9

I have the script now lol, Lisa sounds like an interesting part... she makes Jack emo :D

18 Name: Me, Myself and I : 2009-12-16 11:14 ID:bwGi09Ad

>>16 That's fine, and I've got them recorded...just no way of getting them to you since my email still isn't working.

19 Name: Lorze the Brookes : 2009-12-16 12:30 ID:ruDsoKI9

Do you want the sound files in MP3 format or just the audacity format? Because I have to go searching for something to translate them otherwise :/ Oh, and it's a bit quiet, but hopefully you'll be able to fiddle with sound levels when you put them all together (knows nothing about recording programs) :)

20 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-17 10:32 ID:5PTQRQj/

>>18 Any idea when your email might be working again (or any chance you could get a new email account or something)?

>>19 That's fine, and your recordings are brilliant.

21 Name: Me, Myself and I : 2009-12-17 10:40 ID:bwGi09Ad

>>20 I tried making a new account, but it's not letting me.

22 Name: Flinch-Hayward : 2009-12-20 12:21 ID:5PTQRQj/

>>21 With a different email provider?
