Some ideas for generics:

(to be played after a very loud Dolby Digital or DTS trailer...)

"Well, that was awesome."
"Oooooooohhhh, that sounded nice."
"Well, well, well, look who spent a lot of money on a home theater system."
"OK. So now my ears are ringing."
"Dang, that was loud." (Damn would be better but I have kids and don't know the rules about stuff like that here...)

And here's another one for after your home theater name -

"Where it's safe. It's quiet. And you don't have to sit through The Twenty."

(Don't know if that joke is regional or not, but at our theaters in town here you've got twenty minutes of commercials before the feature, called the twenty. Actually it might even be better to just say "sit through twenty minutes of commercials.")

Do any of these work? I just want to know because I'm not sure if I want to use up my whole 30 words with these.

For sure I want:

"the Hull Family Theater"
"Hull Family Theaters"

I'm not sure if could mix "Theaters" instead of theater with the previous - basically I'm stressing out about finding the right name for my home theater so I just want to cover all my bases.

Any feedback on the above would be great, and I'll have my final script after the Big Game.

Lines like these are what should make this read unique! Each read has something special in it. I can't tell you how many people participated in volume 1 because of a single line:

"and keep your hands off my daughter"

mheadroom,

sounds good. i will try to come up with a couple more today and post them after the game. take what you like, discard the rest. thanks.

some of these may be too cheesey, but some are fun - take what you like...

You thought they were the average American family. With a normal car. Normal lawn. Normal kids. Well you were wrong, dead wrong. This weekend, (pause to add custom theater name or family name) invites you to witness what you have been missing out on you entire life - the home theater experience. You may never leave.

In a world where people still watch standard definition television, one family says "no more." This weekend, you are invited to be a part of the high definition home theater experience.

A story this big can only be told on a screen this size.

This is the true story of an ordinary man, who made an extraordinary home theater. Join us in a theater that critics are calling "sweet" and "freekin' awesome." The Times writes, "You don't have to worry about cell phones or annoying strangers. Four stars." And the Daily Globe reports "A life changing experience. They have a real popcorn maker and everything. Totally pimped out." (pause to insert custom theater name), a "freekin' awesome" experience.

A friendly reminder, the last person to leave there cell phone on in here was stripped down, thrown in a barrell full of rusty thumb tacks, and rolled up and down every hill in San Francisco. Enjoy the show!

JRH,
Yup. If your lines can work for others then I use them as generics. If the lines are themed towards your own theater then they are custom. Many people just throw in a couple of custom lines and don't use the whole 30 becasue their lines work well as genrics.

Biggie,
Love em. Add'n em!

Max,

Were the Home Automation reads a part of the other volumes? I knew you had some Home Automation stuff, but the list you posted looked much bigger. I just sent you an email with my custom lines.

Thanks - Andrew

I don't really like talking about my flair

The Home Automation stuff was not part of any volume. It was something I had read for my own use. I had planned on offering this disc sometime in the future if I found any interest.

Thanks so much! I can't wait either.

Just wish I would have gotten my custom lines together in time, but like an idiot I forgot.

The quotes are in!

Here's the final - $30 for download - $33 for shipped via USPS.


We will be using Bob and he will be reading all 3 volumes. If we were to go with Greg it would cost each person $65 for just volume 3 so we will not be using Greg.

I will be posting a final script in the next day or 2. It will include everything! If you are still waiting to get me lines, DON'T! Get them to me now.

You can make paypal payments to htvoiceover@gmail.com. Please remember to include your AVS screen name. If you want the disc shipped, please include your address also.

Since this script will be huge, it will take me a while to cut up all the files and it will be a huge pain. Would you all rather wait for the files or just get the raw reads and cut them up yourself?

It's likely to take me over 6 hours of work (2 weeks of free time) to cut up the files and name them. I know I said I wouldn't be cutting them up but i know myself and i will do it for my own purposes. The benefit of cutting up the files is that we will have a list of everything that needs to be fixed.

Please give me your feedback on this issue.

-Jason

Great I'll send you payment right now. I would like the files already cut up. I dont mind pitching in an extra $5 for your effort to cut them up. Doing all three volumes seems like a pretty hefty project for you.

If I could still be added to the list, I would be very grateful. I've sent you a PM with my custom lines, just in case.

I would also prefer for the files to be cut up.

It would be awesome to have the files cut up. If you decide to do the legwork, I will definitely add some extra $$ to the paypal because it is no easy task and you have already done so much.

If this has been posted before, please forgive me, but I read through the other threads and didn't see it answered.

I know that Greg is the Fox News voice-over guy, but do you have a credit list for Bob? His voice sounds familiar, but I sure can't place it.

Thanks,

Scott

I'm glad you went with Bob, I actually preferred his voice over Gregg's.

I'm also interested in the cut-up files, I would be willing to pay $5-$10 extra.

This may sound like a weird (dumb) question, but will the download files be in the same format as the shipped CD? In other words, will they be compressed or modified to accommodate downloading from the Internet (i.e. Due to download bandwidth limits where you might be hosting the files)?

Thanks again... I really appreciate you taking the initiative to make this happen.

mheadroom,
Once again it sounds as if you have outdone yourself. Many thanks for the time and effort to spearhead this project. Looking forward to this version as well.

Best regards
Don

Ok so here's some answers.

1. Bob has done a ton of radio work over the years so it is possible you might have heard him before.

2. Bob will be rereading everything, including the custom lines.

3. I'll chop the files since everyone seems to want them. As I said it will take longer to deliver but Bob will be quick to get me the files so it shouldn't take more than 2 weeks (probably less). I'm not asking for anything for this work but feel free to donate only if you can afford it and wish to.

4. the files will be the same files regardless of download or CD. They will be 48k Wav Mono files.

I think that's everything.

-Jason

Jason,

If you are still taking late-comers, I'm in for Volume 3, particularly since it includes the re-read of Vol 1 and 2 (which I already have). Just call me a completist.

I will Paypal you the cashola as per the last two times once I verify that you are still taking orders from people. I also need to check the scripts to make sure the key words I need are there.

Thanks again and regs,
Jeff

Excellent. Paypal forthcoming plus a little more to subsidize the "Jason personal time" cost.
