post #64 of 224

they are the original gummie. They are fish and traditionaly red. I think the flavor is trying to be strawberry but who knows. They just taste good. =)

...but only when they're fresh. There's nothing worse than a hard swedish fish.


OK, I'm torn here. I thought when we originally voted on who to get, I prefered Bob. I wasn't completely thrilled with the results from Greg, but they ARE really good. The nice thing about Vol 1 and Vol 2 is that you can mix and match. And I think the generics on those two are much more, well....generic. Going with a different voice on vol 3 kind of limits what you can do. But I like Bob's voice better.

So, I recon that if there were a complete re-read of 1&2, I'd be interested in 3, even though there only a couple of really generic lines that I might use. If there IS a re-read, I'd like to get some of the connecting words redone. For instance, the word "and." Read in a flat connecting way..."John and Mary." Then in a more excited kind of way..."popcorn, candy AND soda!" I think that gives you a LOT of flexibility in what you can put together.

So like an earlier poster, I'm not ready to commit until I know if there will be a complete re-read and a ballparkl of what it might cost.

Again, thanks for all your work on this. I can see what a headache this one has been.

Oh, Gummie Bears... I didn't know that that wasn't there real name
post #67 of 224

they are softer than gummiebears though. They are well "Swedish Fish" =)

Tom, I agree. Personally I would have rather gone with Bob from the get go. But the vote didn't go that way. I love Gregs reads and am happy, but Bob would have been easier to deal with.

I am hoping to keep the price low here and I understand if people don't want to participate because the lack of content. I'm going to push off the quote request until Monday. This should give peole enough time to submit some more generics. I'm also going to work on some this weekend myself. Maybe then this volume will seem more attactive.

They are completely different than gummi bears. They have a different texture and flavor. Go to your local supermarket or Walmart and pick up a bag to try. If they are fresh...they are great. If they arent fresh...they are tough to chew. They are my favorite candy of all time. My father used to buy them for me at the candy store in the mall when I was growing up in the 80's.

They started out as only red but now they do offer multicolored (flavored) ones...Attached is a pic.

That's probably the scales vs. the fur


mheadroom, if you looking to add more generics to the script just repeat some of them from vols 1&2. That might make this single volume more attractive - easier to splice our own lines together. Maybe some of the generic welcome/snackbar stuff and the AV gear stuff.

Just a thought....

Thanks mheadroom. Your work on this (and your other projects) are some of the most significant contributions to the forum. You are to be commended.

Not sure if this has been mentioned or appears in the other two volumes, but it would be GREAT if we could get studio names read such as: Pixar Studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Universal Studios, Lions Gate Films, etc., as well as:

Now Playing
Coming Soon
To
From
Available on DVD

That way, for those that create their own custom video intros, they could preclude each trailers with one of the above reads, while a logo of the studio is shown (available on Brands of the World). Also, I didn't notice my theater name and custom lines in the final list. Do I need to fire off an email separately?
post #77 of 224
Oh yes...studio names would be great!

I love the idea of the studios. Please post more!

I'm going to work on some more generics this weekend. I have a call into the studio on Monday. I'm going to send them the script then so please have all your lines in by sunday night.
post #79 of 224
Super excited - just read through vol. 2 thread and was thinking I missed out on it - then found this thread with a deadline of sunday! Please add me to the list - I'll have my lines tomorrow, I haven't even read this thread yet, so don't know what the rules are - but just wanted to get in before too late!)

Count me in.

theater name = The Fitzsimons Family Theater (pronounced "fitz-sy-munz" NOT "sim-munz")
custom - Wisconsin Badgers
custom - BOO-YA!
custom - Welcome to
custom - The Cave
custom - March Madness
custom - Fo-shizzle
custom - word to your mutha
custom - Cooper
custom - marathon
custom - Matt
custom - Ilyana (pronouned "Il-e-on-ahh")
custom - Riley
custom - and keep your mitts off the equipment
custom - Cooper's Robot Cinema

generic - presented in
generic - High Definition
generic - first annual, second annual, third annual, etc.
generic - proudly presents

Don't know if there will be time in the script, but wanted to add this to see what you had to say...what about having some fake trailer lines...something fun like dialogue to an action movie trailer...but a little over the top for comedic purposes...for example:

"In a world where most humans choose to walk in the sun on the weekends, one family chooses to dwell in darkness. And you may be next. Join them any weekend, in a home theater near you."

Ok, that kinda sucks, but there has to be some funny ideas out there that could be fun.

I actually thought it was humorous! But yes, if we do Bob the new guy, that is the type of thing I wanted to do. He sounds more serious, so I thought it would be a great spoof of those action flicks.

Ooohh...can I add Boomer Sooner to my custom words?

Biggie,

Your generics are al ready in the set so i didn't add them.

As for your trailer scrit, this is exactly what we should put in here! IF anyone has anything like this that they would like to add, POST IT!

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"
post #88 of 224
mheadroom,
Add me to the list of those that are interested. I figure one more to the list might help the cost structure. If there is still time for lines mine are below. I saw a reference to Monday being the deadline does that still hold true?

Best regards
Don
post #89 of 224
I am intersted and will email my custom lines later today. Please count me in. I thought that some good generics would be remote control commands. I looked over my touchscreen remote and came up with the list below. I think that a few of the words may have been found in some other phrases, but thought it might be a good idea to have a set of common remote control commands I'm guessing these would be pretty common to just about all remotes...and one could do some really cool stuff integrating these into a control system.
