Behind the scenes glimpse, into the humanity, behind the lurid/pre-code horror entertainment. Similar to outtakes, or candid conversation; demonstrating (like the statement at the end of Predator 2018) the work, employed various talents, creating jobs in the lurid/horror entertainment niche industry.
This particular actress was affected in some way by covid-19. After 86 days, I had messaged only twice; the lack of response was unusual. She finally replied to a recent ETA inquiry I made – offering to give me the recording free, and indicated she was ready to work on more of my projects!
After listening to her theatrical read of “Thermidor II”, I was impressed by her multiple voices, storytelling tone ( accent). I liked her word pronunciation.
I am looking forward to a “Thermidor III”, now that this actress has produced such a fine version of this. Will be special, to have the audio, matched to fully detailed, inked illustrations; and later on, possibly, animations; and soundtrack.
She interpreted my request, as a choice up to her between the two documents. It is interesting to me, that she chose ” Thermidor II”. On one hand, it has more explicit gore, and is far more lurid. The scenes described in the narration, when illustrated, would be considered “NSFW” to Patreon, and general mainstream*.
It is nice to know this talented voice actress is on board for more in the “Thermidor ” series. The way I have gone about the writing, is to brainstorm, how to go about scripting dialogue to accompany the most lurid scenes I am planning to illustrate: across the brands I have designed; first. For the most part, I have covered that territory**. The area for variation, and increasing detail, is the art.
With the lurid/horror dialogue ( concepts) mostly created ( like a foundational accessory, to the straight writing of episodic storytelling, with repeat cast) the direction to go, that will actually accentuate the former, is to develop the latter ( vanilla writing, that is meaningful).
Doing the lurid /horror aspect of the writing, was perhaps the most challenging – like going alone, into a cave, and plumbing the depths. Coming back out of the dark cave, there is much more available to engage in, out in the sun, with a refreshing breeze, and friendly companions; and adventures.
So, the adventures, and characters, in the stories, have more tangible, adversaries, trials, and loss to overcome. In this way, ( like George Lucas) , the warmth of the positive is more deeply felt, emerging from the gritty villains, and significant consequences or threat from opponents.
As an artist, every detail, becomes the focal point, at some point – but the story, allows for many details; with a focal point that is paradigm of a protagonist, or circumstance, with relatable characters problem solving.
**With scripts that cover the basic phrases, inflections, ideal for accompanying the lurid art*** drafted, and read. I can present former actresses reads, along the same scripts, to present to as many actresses as I have the interest, funds and time to do so.
*** ( in visual novel, 2-d or 3-d video game dialogue, youtube, or other media broadcast – as flavor content)
* ( despite being tame, in comparison to some content, and comparable to 70’s Eerie magazine stories; which I have been seeing regularly; as I photo the interiors, each week, and throughout the months).
Actress 10: “Hello there. First of all an apology does need to come first and foremost!

I replied: ” Wow!
It means alot to me ( as the writer) to hear the spectacular job you did ( despite everything going on). You brought to life the narrative in a way I haven’t heard from anyone else.
I am particularly impressed by the special effects ( of the multi voice crowd); but even more, at how you applied your ability for doing other voices! Your acting was beyond my highest expectations. Great accent, I like the style of voice you used, and the storytelling inflection was more engaging than anyone I have heard. Thank you so much!
I definitely want you to be compensated fully, for this and all future orders. Your price is more than generous to begin with, and your talent far above! Keep up the great work. As soon as I type up another segment, I will send it your way. ”
Actress Ten: ” Hi there! What I think is best for you as the buyer who has waited too long, is for you to please cancel the order so that you do not have to waste funds on this order. I am happy to deliver it to you for free; attached to this message. I hope it was worth the wait and it was what you expected
