«This is the first "A Puney Planet" episode I've seen. (The title was a bit off-putting to me.) So, I did not have the benefit of the backstory. However, I very much enjoyed this and now feel compelled to catch up with previous episodes.
I am impressed with your Susigan Modern Films intro. Nicely done! The "previously on..." and recap were nice touches, too. The music used here gave me an 80's vibe, which I liked.
As a whole, the music is excellent (including music appropriateness and timing). And the sound effects and weapons fire are nicely done.
The aliens, IMO, were a rather refreshing change from the usual. The translucent, ghost-like alien seemed especially mysterious. And with the story pacing and all the action, you manage to keep things interesting.
I was also impressed with your credits and closing. Very Star Trek TOS, IMO. The "starfield" effect was a treat for the eyes.
1) The lighting in several of the scenes could use work. The dungeon, especially, was too bright. But, you did acknowledge this as a technical problem in the description.
2) The volume on the voices is sometimes too low. It can be hard to make out what they're saying because it's sometimes difficult to hear them over the music and sound FX. You may want to increase voice volume or decrease the background.
3) It would help tremendously if the voice actors would try harder to inject more emotion into their lines. As it is, most of them sound emotionless. I think Travis was about the only one to sound... well, human.
4) The synthesized voices for some of the characters is obvious and a bit jarring. To be fair, it's understandably difficult to find good voice actors for all your characters. As such, it was smart to choose voice actors for the humans. A synthetic voice for the android is highly appropriate, for instance. Though...
[Looking more closely at your credits, it seems most of your characters have synthetic voices. And you used a voice changer for some of them? In that case, you did very well with what you had. It explains why some of the characters sounded flat, too.]»

Duration: 18min 57sec Views: 1 301 Submitted: 5 years ago Submitted by:
Description: Ep.20: In this Season finalé the Jamming device is finally located and rescue for the stricken landing party is launched. Orloph meet up with a face from the past and leaving the planet becomes a lot harder than first thought. Some scenes shot in dark light e.g. dungeon which presented a problem, due to many effects and puppets in one scene. But with a bit of cutting and trimming I was able to complete it. I hope you enjoy it.
