The third audio promotional teaser for The Cycle of the Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn! With Kyle Land as Mr. Gum, Elissa Park as Dreana, John Archer as Gediyon, and Steven Kelly as Jayse.
I chose this scene ’cause I really wanted to do the part where Gediyon and Dreana “officially” meet 😉
I held auditions for Mr. Gum, and Kyle–who was the first to audition–was the one who nailed it. So, BAM! Role goes to him 😀 Since Mr. Gum only has one line in the book two promos (he’ll have more in book three’s promos), I asked Kyle to go ahead and just do the lines on his own without my directing. Actually, his third take was hilarious, but I felt it would be out of place if I included it because it was so over-the-top.
The other characters were already cast from book one’s promos. Fun times directing Elissa to act ridiculously seductive, John to act all sheepish with a few jokingly seductive takes himself, and Steven with just…two…very…small lines :’D
I also chose this scene because I thought Michelle’s reactions to Dreana hitting on Gediyon while they’re supposed to be in the final round of the tournament was hilarious. Michelle pretty much thinks Gediyon is a saint, and she thinks Dre is a slut, put ’em together, and Michelle gets overprotective like, “STAAAHHP.” Even Elissa was like, “Wow, girl, calm down.”
There was a fun bit when I was directing John to sound cut-off when he says “Lady Dre–” and I was laughing so hard that I just SCREAMED once he started the line, so we could get a proper cut-off kinda sound 😀 Fun times.
