Thimbleweed Park Italian fan dub Project - Official Thread(TM)


#9

Since this is a HUGE project, there’s no “when” :stuck_out_tongue: we’re starting to organize roles according to each one’s possibilities and interests, but basically one could start right now. We have 16k lines to dub in total, the sooner we start the sooner we’ll end :slight_smile:

Anyway, to those who want to take part in it, this is the Telegram group:

Some of our forum friends are already there :slight_smile: there isn’t much activity right now, it’s basically just me and Zak discussing the above video, but we’re glad if more people come!

There are about 10 female roles to assign to, and about 20 male roles.
We noticed that recording through the smartphone gives very good results, compared to cheaper headphones + mic.
Besides, smartphones gives you an important thing: the freedom to record anywhere :wink:


#11

But you should try to record somewhere with no reverb and no background noise nevertheless :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

But what if my bathroom has all of that? :open_mouth:


#13

We’ll be lucky if we find 10 males and 5 females, who will be certainly enough. I’m not on telegram, I’ll join nex weekend.


#14

This is a call-out to the Italians here! We need voices!

@seguso, we’ve been trying to contact you since quite some time, will you be our Doug?

I edited my post too :slight_smile: thanks


#17

Sorry guys, I’m swamped with work, totally exhausted.

No Doug voice for me, I’m afraid.

Just to be clear:
we are taking this dubbing project seriously.
Actually, we have listed all the TWP characters and assigned roles to a handful of people.
We are currently selecting people (casting) and recording voices.

We are very determined to complete this project.
It will require time, but keep in mind that everyone can record his own voice using his own smarthphone (in any place, anytime), then upload the audio file to the group.
It will be subsequent processed (noise reduction if needed, volume adjusting, EQ filtering, and so on).

Except for the thousand-euros professional mics, we have found that the built-in mics in modern smartphones are excellent for the voices.

OK, there is no need to do it now, let’s see in a few months, during spring/summer.
Would you like to wait, to see if you will have more spare time?

Please?
Pretty please?
Please with sug… ehm no, not this one!


#20

In a few months? There’s hope!


#21

Yes, and you have less than 50 sentences to say, in total, most of them have the same words in it (“Ciao Delores”, “Steng a scavà”, “A ecche nen ci pù ndrà”).


#22

I’m trying to convince a friend of mine with a deep voice, he’d be funnier :slight_smile:


#23

send me the list of sentences when you have them. he’s already saying “I don’t know the context” and finding excuses.


#24

I’ll send you the list on the Telegram Group.


#25

NOOOOO! :grimacing:


#26

Well, not really in any place :stuck_out_tongue: a silent place with low reverb would be better


#27

But it would add an extreme amount of atmosphere if you record the lines in the corresponding environment. For example Ransome should record his lines in the arena of a real circus in front of a real audience. And it would be great if the voice actors for Ray and Reyes would record their lines in real sewers!

:crazy_face: :thinking: … Idea!
