«Round about the four minute zone I got a good laugh when I understood the title. A fine ending and a fun shorty.»
The Frozen Men
«Yeah I was referring to the inflection, if that were to improve (not to say that it hasn't, like you said it's come a long way) I wouldn't mind them nearly as much. And about the awkward dialogue, I didn't think about that until after but I have made quite a few plotagon sketches and had to reword things many times to get the best possible inflection, sometimes having to scrap the line all together as Plotagon doesn't have the greatest synthetic voices out there, so I know exactly where you're coming from, so although I do still not like some of the dialogue, I understand why it was done that way. Definitely no need to be sorry, as I said in my original comment I did find this idea interesting and would like to see it expanded upon. If you want we could work on it together, always looking to collaborate on something.»
«Thank you all for watching, and thank you all for your comments. I am well aware of the problems with speech synthesizers. In my opinion, the problem is not that they are recognizable for what they are, but the fact that it is difficult to get inflection and expression of feeling into the resulting sound bites. They have come along way since SBTalker, which sounded just like the now familiar voice of Stephen Hawking. The latest version of Text Aloud allows you to dynamically modify speed, pitch, and volume of spoken text, and with patience you can get surprisingly good results. Also, different voices have their own natural cadence of inflection which sometimes works out and sometimes not. I suspect that the awkwardness of the dialogue that Law complains about is the result of numerous rewords of the text to try to make the inflection of the sentences match the natural cadence of the voices. The scenes were not created in chronological order, and I will admit that toward the end of the project, which took about two weeks, I was getting tired of fiddling with it. I will also admit that had I not drank four glasses of Cabernet Sauvignon the night I posted this video, we would not be having this discussion.
Nevertheless, I am not so sorry now. Thanks again for watching.»
«Someone who makes computer generated humans and situations complains about computer generated voices? Now one may begin to understand why people who watch Hollywood movies and TV do not like to watch the computer generated movies on this sight. The difference in quality and believability is far greater with the visuals then they are with any computer generated voice.»
«Well, that was definitely different. An interesting idea for a film, I think it'd be cool to see a continuation of it. I didn't care much for the robot voices, and on top of that some of the dialogue was strangely worded in my opinion. Directing and editing was good for the most part. There were a couple typos in the quotes at the end too, just thought I'd point that out in case you didn't notice. I give this 3 stars out of 5, it was intriguing concept that could be built upon. Only real gripe with this was voices and a bit of the dialogue. Didn't love it, but didn't hate it either! I look forward to seeing more from you, and if you need a voice actor let me know! »
