Oh we have controversial topic forum..Those have always existed. And I'm for that. Just keep personal user to user shit off the forums.

 

the Controversial topic thing would fall under "debate" now I guess. I had some good times in those forums with a few members.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 June 2019 - 09:28 AM)

Not really pressed about it, so it's no biggie to me. I'm only here for the S3 comic at this point, and maybe continuing to post mine. It's just too dead around here, and people are either too lazy, too occupied, or too afraid to share opinions as if words from feedback or response are going to hop out of the screen and attack them or something.

 

I'm an old ass man.... :(

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 June 2019 - 09:19 AM)

They generally don't last long on forums where management isn't objective about running a forum. People generally don't have the restrain/discipline to not mod it. Someone's going to catch feelings, disregarding the thousand disclaimers on the front post of the section and still hit up the admins whining about the hurty things that mean man x said to them. And the admins will feel obliged to do something about it, when ignoring it is definitely an option.

 

Again, generally speaking, people want the good of things and not the bad or the drawbacks that come with it. It's why facebook and twitter have like buttons, but no dislike button. It's why youtube demonitizes wrongspeak. It's why forums ban people for private disputes between members despite the fact that there's every tool under the sun to stop a person from bothering them available to users. It's anti hate speech is considered a thing to uphold, when hate speech is free speech, no exceptions. It's why politics are a mess. For society, the message is clear, whine until you get your way, and the lowest common denominator being as loud as they are will set the precedent for everyone else despite able bodies. For all this acting like adults thing that society pushes, society at large doesn't expect anyone to actually BE one.

@  Shadow : (09 June 2019 - 07:56 AM)

Didn't we have a controversial/rant rave section of the forum at one point

@  chief : (08 June 2019 - 07:06 AM)

Lets try to keep any personal issues out of the shoutbox. Or forums all together.

@  ShenFNWoo : (07 June 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Nothing much. Just wanted to make sure a certain person didn't get the wrong idea about how it is between us. I don't forget certain details, and things don't change no matter how much time passes unless they show some willingness to want to fix things.

@  furrykef : (07 June 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have no idea what's going on here.

@  ShenFNWoo : (07 June 2019 - 09:58 AM)

This will be my first time (without accident) speaking to you directly, so I want to make this perfectly clear: I have a strict policy on how to deal with people who block others without sufficient reason (aka running away from a zero conflict situation). We do not talk, we do not exchange ideas, and you are invisible to me possibly forever, depending on you. Communications with you in particular will reopen at a future time equivalent to the amount of time in which you've had me blocked thus far. In the mean time, I'll add you to my foe list, and/or manually disregard everything you say to me. Cheers! ^_^

Posted 15 March 2008 - 08:43 PM

Because I just don’t want to see this die without at least giving it a fair go, and because Jim sucks (I’m not sure what that has to do with any of this, but he does!), I’m going to push forward with the Freedom Fighter Frequency; a SatAM radio-drama podcast thingy.

For those not in the know the F3 concept was brought to life in the last FUS forum and introduced as a possible project by Jim Doe (the guy that sucks). Unfortunately not much was progressed apart from a few interested volunteers that wanted to join and some ideas tossed around for story ideas. It did need someone that could take the reigns of it to really give it a helping hand to get going - and that’s what I’m doing now: Taking the reigns, or plugging in the steering wheel, or... you get the idea.

So to plagiarize much of Jim’s opening post on this project from the old board we’re looking for the following roles to be filled:

Showrunner - Two or three people that are in charge of the entire project. We need the committed type that will assign jobs, keep track of all deadlines given -and making sure they are met- and will also oversea all aspects including Voice directing and episode writing. Basically it’s a couple of Executive Producers insuring everything is finished on time and there are no issues that need to be resolved in any of the departments (writing, sound and voice directing). I myself will be taking this position. Would be nice to have more than just me though.

Head Writer(s) - Again would be nice to have more than one at this position. The person who plans the overarching plot of the whole series, hands out specific episode assignments to the other writers, and checks to generally make sure everything is going on track. This is a primary position, so please, only those who are willing to dedicate a great deal to the job should apply. Head Writers may also occasionally be called upon to write scripts for those stories that are heavily tied in to that overplot.

Writers - Or as I like to think of them as ‘The grunts’. These guys make it all happen. Create and structure the stories that will be told through the radio drama. The numbers needed for this role is undecided at this time, but it will require people who can write scripts, pitch ideas and generally just springboard plots in a group environment.

Editor(s) - Generally one person would be enough to fill this position, but hey, it never hurts to have a second pair of eyes going through the finished scripts and making sure spelling and punctuation is going smoothly.

Sound Director - The guy(or gal) that goes through each and every script and determines what sounds are to be needed for each scene. It will their job to assign detailed descriptions of required sounds to the sound crew. This does not include music.

Sound crew - The sound gatherers. We’ll need people that have a basic understanding and working knowledge of how to obtain that certain sound effect to bring life to a scene. Be it finding already creating samples on the net or recording your own that cannot be found.

Music Director - Similar job as the sound director, will need to organize the specified music scores needed for scenes (character moments and themes), intros and endings.

Music crew - The fine bunch of people that can write and create music. I rather important job as I see it. I would like music to play a big role in this project to really help convey emotion in the character’s situations. This is probably the least part of this project that I have knowledge on how in the hell it can be done. So I’ll be needed people way smarter than I to help develop how this is created.

Voice Director(s) - Basically the TV directors of an episode, people that can direct the voice actors in making sure the correct tone and overall scene is as was written. Making sure we get the most out of our voice actors, working with them to ensure that Sonic and Sally actually sound like they're talking to each other instead of just recording their voices and pressing play at the appropriate moments.

Definitely need more than one for this role.

Voice Actors - The heart and soul of the project, the people that bring the script and characters to life before our very ... err ears. Who is eligible? Anyone. Yes, anyone, as long as you have a decent working microphone and are good with using your voice, with some minimal knowledge on how to record (hints and helpful advice for newcomers will be posted later with the cast audition post).

I’m not expecting everyone out there to give exact copies of the original actors. In fact I am more interested in looking for people who could capture the “essence” of a character, so even if Sally doesn’t sound like Kathy Souce she still sounds like Sally might sound if cast differently.

The remaining roles are more of a maybe position if and when this project gets far enough to warrant them:

Website Management - We're not going to be doing this just for our own edification. We're gonna have a website, baby! And in order to do that, we're gonna have to have people to run said website. That means coding, updating, and general upkeep. If one of y'all already has webspace that we could use, that would also be super-cool, but not necessary. If just a couple of us tossed in five or ten bucks each, we could easily get decent space somewhere.

Graphics Designers - Sure, it's a radio play, but websites still need pictures, so we're going to need artists and graphics folks to make logos and banners and such.

Treasurer - Another one of those primary positions. Not because of the amount of work involved, but because of the amount of trust that will be put into this individual. See, though we certainly can't (or at least shouldn't) sell the radio plays for monetary gain, we can still accept donations to do things like the aforementioned buying of webspace and bandwidth for F3. Because hey, as big as these files are probably going to be, we'll need to pay for some decent space and bandwidth. So we'll need someone who's got a bank account and a PayPal account, and who we can trust to handle that money in a responsible fashion. For the trust reason, I would prefer all applicants to this position be a Master FUSer or above.


As for the story/continuity we’d be aiming for? It will be, of course, SatAM. Whether it be a 3rd season adaption (who knows it could be something of a sister project that goes along with sea3on comic, if it ever gets going again), a prequel, or, what I am really leaning towards, an in-between episode series that takes place during both seasons. Tell those extra character stories that were missing, actually do something with those damn scrolls from season 1!

In any event before the story can be developed we need you, fans of the show that want to help see something new breathed into our little favourite fandom of ours. So if you are interested in any role listed here please don’t hesitate to put your hand up. If you feel you can help in other ways not mentioned here then by all means speak your piece.

Oh you'll be throwing in a lot more than that, sunshine. So I could throw your name down as an 'if' and 'when' on the Writer's list?


Okay so I'm not really expecting to find people to fill all of these roles straight away so I'm thinking that to start off we need only a small few to write, voice direct, create sounds and music to get the first episode off the ground. If that means we end up doubling with certain jobs then so be it - I know myself I'll be able to handle everything except the music side of it if I have to, which, in the long run I really don't want to. I feel that if we can at least accomplish an episode or two to show what this thing can really be the chances of building a willing staff will increase. The 'if we build it they will come' saying.

What is needed without a doubt are the voice actors. I shall start up a list of characters (for starters I'll just keep it contained within the core cast) and dialogue lines for the auditions. That will be up tonight-ish. I hope.

Whew. So glad you said that you're the only person I know with creating music experience. I am completely in the dark with this part of the project. On that subject, what kind of music are you actually able to provide? I've heard much of your RPG-y tunes, but I think for this it will require something less game-y. If that makes sense?

Chief contacted me about becoming a head writer, so I'll throw my hat into ring for that – or whatever that bloody phrase is. Could also have an attempt at doing a couple voices too.

Writing is probably the thing I'm best at, so I'm down with that. I've never tried writing a serious SatAM story before, so I don't have any idea how I would do at it, but I think it has a good chance of turning out well, especially if I have a good writing partner. (As I've said various times, I'm not so good at plots, the skeletal aspects of storytelling... but if you want me to flesh out a story idea you already have in mind, then I'm your man!)

QUOTE ("John Roberts":kf73g69h)

Well, I can do music too! Valerie's a much better composer than I am, though, especially for this sort of thing, so she's probably right for the job. I could possibly help her flesh out the music or contribute some bits of my own if necessary, but if it's not necessary then I'll just let her do her thing.

That will work out exactly as I was hoping for mate. *Thumbs up* The perfect idea I have for this is to form a group of writers that will do just as you described. Of course that is not to say I wouldn't want any of them to never come up with plots of their own, I would actually encouraging them to create their own thing as long as it follows the structure of the show, and of the occurring storyline we set into place.

Hell yeah! More than one person in the music department is a good thing. Extra expertise can be helpful, and I'm sure Val won't argue the fact. *shakes stick* As I asked Val though, I shall ask you too: What style of music can you compose?

Unfortunately, music for a show like SatAM is probably one of my weak points. My strength really lies in video game music. Even the music I write that isn't for games often sounds like it's for a game.

You can hear a little bit of my music at http://www.furrykef.com/music, but be warned that you'll need a player such as WinAmp that can play .s3m and .it files.

I had a prolouge to a Season 3 themed fanfic I was writing on the old forum, but it seems to be inacessable now...and honestly I think I may have come dangerously close to the "Golden Age Comics" standard with the descriptive style. Maybe a bit too much alliteration.

All depends on what you're looking for. If the music from my my SheezyArt Gallery is any indication. I am more than capable of delivering music for other genres.
