Ah, finals. The bane of humanity has reared its depressing head and plans to squash all hopes of me saving the semester. But I will prevail, as most tend to do and if all I do is pass at this point, I think I should be ok.
This is mainly because a lot of things are pressing down at once. A teaser trailer for the novel Dark Soldier coming 2016 is in production and searching for a deep-voiced speaker to voice the character portrayed. We only have the rest of the December to get it done. At the same time is finals, and you can just imagine how that is pressing down. It’s not a very happy time in my life, to be honest, but I seem to be managing.
I will give a couple spoilers as to what exactly is happening in the teaser. First of all, as I mentioned, this deep-voiced intimidating character is going to be the spotlight. He’s the only character in it, after all. Very minimalist visuals will be involved, but a brief glimpse of a dark throne is likely going to be involved. The scene it is taken from is described like this:
“Far from Oriwind, a hooded figure in a grey cloak walked down a hallway. Its floor was paved in gold. Its golden walls were decorated with all sorts of trinkets from other lands; shields, paintings, rugs and masks hung in rows. Doors were scarce. Those that existed were framed in swirling, decorative borders made of the finest ruby.
At the end of the hall stood a giant pair of doors, decorated like the others, and no different in their size and its placement. The hooded figure lifted its sleeves, revealing two smoke-black hands. It pushed open the door.
What the door opened to was an even larger hallway, with red velvet carpeting that lead up to a giant golden throne. There were no windows in the hall, only great lanterns hung on poles that stood rowed along the edges of the carpet. The lanterns gave off an eerie blue flame.”
And yet the character shown is not the hooded figure. It is the one on the throne.
That is all.
Have an excellent rest of the weekend, darklings!
