The fourth audio promotional teaser for The Cycle of the Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn! With Steven Kelly as Jayse and John Archer as Gediyon.
This miiight be my favorite teaser out of all of them X’D Maybe because Gediyon has a bigger role in it, and, like, he’s my favorite character
and John’s voice is super hot here *cough*
But also, I love the music, because I feel like it sets the atmosphere, and the whole scene is mysterious and, what is with Gediyon?! Actually, I pretty much like this whole chapter. Something happens at the end of it, and a ship sets sail :’D…uh, literally. And figuratively. Ahem.
Anyway, enough gushing.
As usual, Steven and John were a blast to work with. I asked Steven to go back into an English accent for this one, since that’s his natural Arriscylean accent, and it’s what he speaks when he’s most comfortable. And he’s comfortable around Michelle and Gediyon, so duh. I love the part where he’s explaining to Michelle the girl from Gediyon’s past, giving these general descriptors like they’re the most important thing in the world, and Michelle’s just like, “Uh. BIG DEAL?!”
In this scene, Gediyon’s pretty sleep deprived. He hasn’t slept for at least three days because of the Third Moon, and he’s survived something like three hundred other contestants in the tournament, so he’s pretty exhausted. I was trying to schedule a recording session with John when he admitted he hadn’t been sleeping very well, so, heck, let’s do it. Method acting.
Asking him to do Gediyon’s last lines in an American accent was a last-minute directorial decision. Given where the lines he says are actually from, I thought it would be more appropriate to use a different accent, much like Jayse uses a different accent when he’s trying to appear more common in front of people he’s not familiar with. So, his accent switch is deliberate. As the writer and director, I think it’s cool, and I hope listeners won’t just be like, “What happened to his accent?”
Just one more teaser trailer left 😀
