I've completed a really nice movie. Of course it's nice, I made it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

What I would like to add to the movie at pieces of narration from people speaking English, but with a heavy German accent. In other words German-english.

Are there any German speakers here who would like to help, I'd appreciate it.
Wot I'll do is write the scripts and post them on my website. If you can do an audio recording and email these files to me.

Danke

I think i could do it, although i believe my accent isn't that thick (according to my British and American professors). But i could act up a little. And i have to say that my micro isn't the best, i'm afraid. It's from a bargain bin headset. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ok to let you in with 'insider trading'..
Well it depends on when those who are assisting email me their final results. A max of 2 days (2 weeks in IL2 time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif) thereafter.
It's a 10 minute movie sitting at 120 MByte. I thought of making it smaller but to sacrifice the visual quality of this game is sacrilege, so I let it be.

Funny thing - even I am impressed/moved by this movie http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

How important is the timing of the narration? If it is important please provide some timeframes for certain phrases with the script. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good point... should be kilometers. Looks like we have a first candidate for a rerecording. But i'm gonna hold my horses and wait if you like what i've done.

Bravo to Smok59er, fantastic video! If the RAF could really be called in to finish the clip, that'd be awsome, but otherwise - well done.

Movie will be 'on air' tonight sometime.
Our day time bandwidth grinds to a halt here http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif so I'll only be able to upload it tonight.

Thanks to all that helped

@NaturalBornGoth

Can you confirm the email (wrt the audio files) that I sent you.

Thanks

That's a negative on the email. I didn't receive any from you, not even in the spam folder. You could give it some time and wait till it shows up (sometimes it takes a while), or you can try again.

In these days: yes. Not VERY common, but pretty common, yes. But my father's name still is Heinz-Dieter http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. My grandfather's name, who fought in the Wehrmacht, was Alex (Alexander).

btw: not only is my name Patrick but i also love irish folk music. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

*** buys ticket and heads to the popcorn line ***

I can just see it at the 2006 academy awards:

Best director: VanJast
Best Actor: NaturalBornGoth

This has been a VanJastNaturalBornGoth Production!

Prepare yourself 'Goth, your voice is about to be downloaded by Millions of internet users...a comforting thought I know! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif (but at least it's just your voice, worse has happened on the internet as you know!)

It's just the first name. Not much of a problem there. And if someone really wanted to find out my full name... well there are more than enough ways to do so.


Seems a problem with my reply emails..

Yeah, they probably take a short detour over Antarctica, India, New Zealand, Hawaii, New Jersey, the Moon, ad infinitum...

No problem... although, when listening to my recordings without the script in front of my eyes, i was under the impression that some phrases were a little hard to understand. Maybe i pushed the accent a tad too far there. But you can always blame it on the audio recording technology from the 40s. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yeah, it could indeed be worse: it could be my butt downloaded by millions of internet users, though i can't think of ANY sane reason why someone would want to do THAT! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
