    Re: Homestuck Radio Play (now drafting HIVEBENT)

    I know I'm SUPER LATE, but this looked really cool and, like Awkward Turtle, I'd love to help out in any way. Umm, I'm not planning to audition for a voice, but I'd be happy to do small jobs to help y'all, like "running errands" (whatever that may mean for y'all) or something. I don't know, this just seemed like a nifty idea and I wanted to support y'all in any way that I could!

    Good luck to y'all, I bet that y'all are gonna make something spectacular!

    Wow, I can't believe it. Over the course of about a day this went from "thing that probably isn't going to happen" to an actual project, with leaders and roles and stuff. I AM PROUD, MSPA FORUMS. YOU HAVE MADE ME PROUD.

    There is nothing that can't be done when a bunch of geeks pull on their fightin' boots, knuckle down, and act like giggling morons in an IRC channel.

    (okay so that's not all we did)

    All right, I've never done voice acting before, but I would be wiling to give it a shot. I would also be pretty happy to do some music for the play.

    Honestly I think a team of foley artists/music people would be good, just like the actual comic. That would help split the load, I guess. Just say like "Okay YOU with the chiptune experience make this fast, dark sounding thing and YOU rework the Showtime theme into a happy solo piano piece. Keep em short okay go"

    Awesome, everyone, thank you so much for your suggestions and for volunteering to help out! (Dacen, we should talk about that with anyone else who is interested in music, as even if we get permission to use some pre-existing themes, I'm sure there will be a need for more music! We'll chat.)

    I'm currently in the process of making a big ol' infodump about everything you need to know, so stay tuned for that.

    Well, I mean not always. Andrew does things sort of differently in that he just has a bunch of people constantly making stuff and he picks one he likes and works from that. But I'm pretty sure how it works normally is that the music guy/team is given some input from the director(s) before the fact into kind of the direction they should take the music.

    It's still pretty open and freeform, but you are given parameters.
    Which honestly I think makes things easier because you've already had some of the thinking done for you already.

    I did one show for a student drama festival where I didn't have ANYTHING from the director; she was just all "Okay do whatever, I trust you".
    And I made this fucking goofy preshow music (which is what was requested) with this goofy oom-pa-pa feel to it and these goofy horn-shots in awful midi trumpet sound, and was like "No this is awful!" But it came down to the wire and I had to give it to her, and it turned out that it was the most hilarious pre show music ever because the hornshots were, by some act of god, timed perfectly to fall in the most hilarious spots possible.
    And I also had to make horrible corny jazz music so I just picked a Kenny G CD off the wall and bummed one of his chord progressions. (Kenny G does this to himself all the time) I played it as a duet with a sax player friend of mine.
    We called it "Never Stunning".

    Goooood times.

    Kaykay Von Fawn, looking forward to massive infodumpe tyme.

    Somehow the use of "baited" instead of "bated" makes this line even more awful/awesome (awfesome?) than it already was.

    Hivebent: The Radio Play!

    Presented by the MSPlayers

    Where doing this, where making this hapen



    Update on the state of affairs—please read.


    First off, I would like to thank nextian for starting this out for us and for being incredibly helpful even though the weight of running this thing is now my job. YOU ROCK!

    Now, let’s get down to business to defeat the Huns:

    * Here is a list of people involved with the creation of the Radio Play! If you are interested in working in a specific area, alert a crew head. If they need you, they'll let you know!

    * The script is currently being adapted to fit in radio play style by our awesome Writing Team, led by Random Encounter.

    * The Script Editing Team is there to proofread the writers' work, not only for errors but also to have an impartial look at the content. The Head Script Editor is Teleharmonic.

    * The episodes are roughly 20-25 minutes long.

    * Here is the current cast list. All of the remaining characters—minor parts, characters that were introduced after audition deadlines, etc—will be cast after Hivebent ends and we get a sense of who we need. I'll announce the third round of auditions when we know what's going on. Anyone is invited to audition, so long as they have read and are fans of the comic!

    * Readthroughs, rehearsals, and character meetings are held in our Vent Server or on Skype. Octopimp is my wonderful assistant director, and will be running some meetings in my stead if I can't be there or am in the scene itself.

    * When dialogue is recorded, it will be sent over to the Sound Editors. They will be in charge of dialogue editing, mixing, adding sound effects, etc. ZingDev is the Head of Sound, and will be making the final mix. (Bless him!)

    * The SFX Team is in charge of finding and creating SFX, which includes digital sounds and foley. If you're at all interested in recording SFX, please contact Alestance, our chief of sound, or just keep an eye on the thread.

    * Original music for the Radio Play is being created by our Music Team, headed up by Dacen. Contact him if you're interested!

    * When this is done, it will ideally air on Skaianet. More info TBA.

    * Other important resources and tidbits:
    - Our policy on involvement.

    - Whether or not you are in the cast or on any of the teams, we invite you to hang out with us! Our permanent IRC home is irc.skaia.net, channel #MSPlayers. (You can get there via the Mibbit Link or through the IRC client of your choice.) Due to past events we won't be posting our Vent information to the thread, so if you would like to join us please PM me and I'll give you the information.


    If you have some feedback to give about any aspect of the radio play, just PM me. It's really great to have opinions but I find that posting them here can start a lot of drama and I would really like this process to be as drama-free as possible. (Ambitious, given the nature of the project, but what can I say?)

    That said, I'm more than welcome to hear any criticism you might have, so long as you PM it to me. As the lady in charge, I already give notes to the cast and crew, so if you point out something that I haven't noticed then I'll be able to synthesize it into my feedback. Your opinion will count and nobody gets hurt, which, to me, sounds like the best of all possible worlds.

    And if you have any other questions, please PM me or my two producers, ArianaDream and Zigkirby!

    Hm. I think I want to offer to help. I like to write, but I usually write very silly things (see: signature). I'm not sure where I'd fit in -- it seems like you guys have a lot of editors and writers already. If there's a place for me, i'd like to be placed!
