    I've been interested in music my whole life. I started playing the piano @ age 8. now I want to expand my acoustic instumentality(violin, harp, drums,etc.).I became interested in video games in 1997(playing none other than Final Fantasy VII for the first time). so, when i rediscovered video games and their music in 2000,i started wondering what it would be like to combine my two favorite pastimes. up until September 2009, I just did covers. now i wanna tackle the challenge of remixing songs from my favorite games. *plug for zircon* and thanks to zircon's production tutorials, i can finally understand enough of the mixing and mastering process to take my just so-so songs and put them on a whole new level(or try anyway ^0^;)my dream for OCR is to be part of an album project. and also thanks to Darkesword for assisting me with velocity + humanizing

Written by Quantum Leek(Fanfiction.net; AO3). This is the story of a family torn asunder by the death of a father, and everything that came before. Featuring dad!Regis and a twin sister for Noctis. This fic is two stories twisted together: one follows the game's timeline and tells the story of a prince and princess coming to terms with death and destiny, while the other is the story of their lives before and everything that leads up to the beginning of the game. if you get ANY Role I'll PM you My discord server Rules: For VAs if you get a role be serious about it don't give me excuses like "I was too tired" if you don't want to do it don't audition. I will have understudy people for real emergencies though. Put your heart into it. I don't care if you ham it up. just act/emote. have at least a halfway decent recording set up; I don't want the background noise of crying babies, airplanes, cars etc. in your recording for all: have fun Audition info: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_HG1JFTt1gtkt01YymvTxcWSA9H72HFVSwBAEqiJREg/edit?usp=sharing I need at least 2 more female & 5 male voices: Camelia Claustra 5-10 people to be extras for certain situations(Regis' Council, angry mob etc.) I would also like these: ignis' uncle, clarus amicitia (another)Gladio Prompto regis emperor aldercapt ignis drautos Cor weskham Iris
  13. would a kickstarter get me in trouble for An ff15 audio Drama? if I state it something like this: this kickstarter is for a Fan Fiction(underline fanfiction) of final fantasy 15. and all of the money would go for these three to four things: 1. paying VAs, script writers, audio people singers visual artists etc./licensing fees so we can make Free Physical copies of the audio drama(to have people give out at conventions like magfest Pax east etc.) 2. paying for printing costs of said Physical copies. 3. shipping! what do you guys think?(I'm for now just kind of worried about using ff15 properties. I talked to the fan fic author and she Loves this idea of an audio drama: https://archiveofourown.org/users/quantum_leek I'll make sure to run the kickstarter Idea by her though.)
