 Okay guys, i am open to multiple versions of recording, when I originally envisioned this, i thought we would be reading all the charaters and voices from our own point of view. It looks like so e of you thought we would be recording every line from our character, which I would be open to, I would just make it so people would still be in charge of editing their own point of view parts so I wouldnt have crazy ammounts of editing to do. 

So how do we want to record this? If we did do all our character's lines even from other parts, we would need to distribute other charaters who don't have their own individual sections. 

So thoughts?

I really like the idea of people-do-all-their-character-lines-even-in-other-sections way, but I haven't listened to many (ie any, really) multi-voice podfic projects before, so I... don't ACTUALLY know what this would be like aesthetically/flow-wise.

It might also keep characters instantly recognizable across all parts, and perhaps give it a more unified feel? IDK. Just some thoughts.

The way you'd wanted to do it is waaaaayyy less editing work, which is always a bonus.

I'm fine with either way. (Also sorry if I stepped on toes.)

I'm good either way. I'm not a particularly quick (or good) editor, but I also have one of the smaller parts, so I could probably keep up.

If we're doing our own sections in full, I'd like some draft recordings from the other characters who speak in my sections--not to try to mimic voices exactly, but to at least make sure that nothing I read as, say, Tony is going to clash completely with seusian's reading.

And if we go with fully-voiced dialogue, I'm happy to pick up some of the other smaller parts.

The different-equipment issues occurred to me after I shut down my computer last night--taking that into account, I'm more inclined to go with single voices by section (but continuing my request for clips from the other characters to reference.)

I'm still reading through so I don't know whether or not I need to record drafts of my characters' dialogue for anyone else's sections yet. I'm kind of a slow reader AND recorder/editor, but if anyone needs me to do that sort of thing I'm cool with it. Private messages here or on LJ (same username for both places) work just fine. :) (Or, y'know - comments/heads-up posts on here. I'll be checking regularly.)

I like the idea of everyone just reading all the voices for everyone in their particular sections, though - this project is massive enough already. No need to make things more complicated.

In theory, for consistency/ease of understanding who is speaking I kind of like everyone doing all of their lines in everyone's parts. I guess this would be my preference style wise, but I'm really totally fine with whatever is decided. I definitely agree that it would be A LOT more work for everyone to do it this way.

A possible negative to consider for this method is that we probably won't all have quite the same sound to our recordings due to recording in different places with different ambient noise and equipment and such....any differences will probably be much more noticeable if we are editing different sounding lines together versus whole sections being slightly different. I'm sure this is correctable in editing, but could also be more work.

Really, as long as there are enough cues in the story to keep straight who's speaking I don't think people will have trouble following even with different readers doing the voices in their own sections.

I agree - everyone doing their character's dialogue in everyone else's parts would make for some difficulty due to different recording equipment and such. The abrupt switch can be pretty jarring for some people, and it's thrown me right out of podfics in the past.

(Edited because my cat stepped on my keyboard before I could finish typing.)

I agree. Everyone's equipment and recording space is different, and as a listener I would be jarred by the change if it was just for one line of dialogue. That being said, I'd be happy to do Tony's lines in other pov sections should the group decide to do that instead. :D
