The fifth and final audio promotional teaser for The Cycle of the Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn! With Rena Cook as Queen Trissa, David J.G. Doyle as King Oresonn, and John Archer as Gediyon.
Gahhh, this scene is so good. I love the tension between Trissa, Oresonn, and Michelle, and there’s still some mystery on both of their parts, and it’s just the beginning of a really epic climax! Eee!!
Anyway, during auditions, I was concerned that I might not find a voice that was mature and regal enough for Trissa. She’s the last female of the Arriscylean bloodline, the true mother of Arriscyal–having given birth to the reincarnation of their first king. I wanted someone with warmth, wisdom, and majesty to her voice. Rena finally submitted an audition, and I kept listening to it because her voice is just so amazing *_*
When it came to directing her, we had a Skype call complete with webcams, and it was awesome! She showed me around her studio. She had her own sound engineer. It was great 😀 I’m glad she found my modest little project.
I scouted Dave for the role of King Oresonn. Like with Edwyn and Saechin Kan Se, I sent him private auditions, and he nailed it. There’s actually a lot more I want to say about his performance, but I can’t without giving too much away, so I suppose I’ll wait until An Eclipsing Autumn has been out for a while before I go on that. I’ll say this though: I love the bass in his voice, and there was one delivery of his last lines that had me cackling with delight. For soon-to-be-revealed reasons 😉
Then there’s Gediyon, and he’s happy, sort of on a date with Dreana, completely innocent and oblivious to what had happened with Michelle and the king and queen. Uh. I guess there’s not much to say about John’s performance here 😛 Yay Gediyon ❤
Anyway, hope you guys enjoyed all of these teasers! 😀 You can find all of them–including The Starriest Summer’s–here at this link!
