BLACK BUTLER
~ * Red Moon Rising * ~

~ The Jack the Ripper Reboot Reunion ~
 
“At the end of the nineteenth century, as the social season was coming to a close, there occurred a serial murder case that shook Great Britain to its core. The victims were all prostitutes. Every one of them was discovered chopped into pieces, their wombs stolen right from their bodies. Because of the hideous state in which the victims were found, the killer became known as ‘Jack the Ripper.’ 
~ Yana Toboso, Kuroshitsuji, Chapter 9

FROZEN - 3DF Does a Tribute to Books-on-Tape

FROZEN © The Walt Disney Company

GOOD EVENING 3DF fans!

Our facebook page suddenly revived itself with the buzz of a new project in the works this evening. Well, this is it!

When I was growing up, one of my favorite things in the world were books-on-tape. Popping an audio cassette tape into the radio and following along in the accompanying book were all part of what led to the creation of 3DF. We are going to get things back up off the ground with a little tribute to the Days of Yesteryear, and what better way than with a recent favorite tale of mine, FROZEN!

Drawing inspiration from Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, Disney's FROZEN takes us on a journey to the kingdom of Arendelle. Fearless Princess Anna sets off to find her sister, Queen Elsa, whose powers of ice and snow have set the kingdom in the state of an eternal winter! With the help of mountain-man Kristoff and friendly snowman Olaf, will Anna be able to convince her sister to bring back summer?

3DF's take on the story will feature our veteran voice actors. Pam Larson is your guide as the narrator. James Hall is Grand Pabbie, the wise leader of the trolls. True Blue makes his return as Kristoff. Curt Rose will warm your heart as Olaf. Dylan Spencer takes charge as Prince Hans.

Making their 3DF debuts are Melissa Guck as Princess Anna and Amber Bernhardt as Queen Elsa.

Melissa has been a long-time 3DF supporter, a friend that I have self-proclaimed as our marketing department. Her energy and optimism make her a perfect match for Anna.

Amber Bernhardt is well-known on the Arizona comic/anime convention circuit as an amazing cosplayer. Recently at Phoenix ComiCon, she wowed the crowds as Queen Elsa, putting smiles on the faces of many from 3 to 103. I'm delighted to have her on board as the regal snow queen!

Script goes out to the cast soon, so stayed tuned!

Reaper Mini ~ "All in Good Time"

Memories by Dantelian
"Memories" by Dantelian; go show the artist some love!!



DOWNLOAD FULL AUDIO HERE

"ALL IN GOOD TIME"
Based on the writings of Lord Onisyr
Adapted for audio by Faith Kelter

CAST
WILLIAM T. SPEARS ~ Faith Kelter
GRELL SUTCLIFF ~ Samantha Black

SOUND
Freesound.org and SoundDogs.com

MUSIC
~ "Ghost Song" by Max Ablitzer
~ "Piano Bars," Sauver Mallia JRT Music Tele Music BMI SACEM
~ "You Must Love Me" from Evita (Instrumental); composer - Andrew Lloyd Webber

Author's Summary: "William and Grell reignited their romance with one simple agreement; one that is proving harder for them both to maintain. In the aftermath of Grell's near-death experience and the resurfacing of old complications, taking that next step is not an easy proposition."

Read the story online!

Please Be Aware!
1) This story is rated M on fanfiction.net, and this audio is no different. NSFW or Children, due to some language and situations.
2) The story takes place after the events of a previous work, "This Immortal Coil," another story that comes highly recommended by the director. Spoilers at your own risk, of course. But Will and Grell discuss how the author sees them in their Human lives, going by the headcanon that Reapers were once Human. William was an officer in the Royal Navy, and Grell was a high-birth aristocrat.

Director's Notes
I have been wanting to get some practice in with Campania and the anniversary of Jack the Ripper on the horizon. A lot of our VAs are excruciatingly busy in recent days, and the projects are taking a while. Completely understandable, but I was feeling a bit rusty and really wanted a mini project to work on. Thus, with the help of newcomer Samantha Black, we present our take on William T. Spears and Grell Sutcliff's voices. This isn't the first time two ladies have done a project together as men. Rina Adachi and myself once did a translated piece based on the Takarazuka production of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Likewise, I have always wanted to do something based on the work of a fan-author that I greatly admire, going by the pen name of Lord Onisyr (fanfiction.net and deviantArt). Her work with Grell Sutcliff has heavily inspired how I write or play the character, and she does an absolutely phenomenal job. All in Good Time is a follow-up piece to one of my two favorite stories from her, This Immortal Coil. It is the shorter of the two, and was a perfect choice for a mini-project. I truly hope Samantha and I did it justice, both in voice-work and overall presentation. It felt good to be behind the scenes again with an audio, especially coming from an author of this caliber.

[...though I really need to work on holding my dialect and trying to sound manly. ;)]

CLUE: Main Cast Decided

Photobucket

After I announced CLUE a while back, my director senses immediately began tingling on who the main characters would go to. CLUE has always had a very colorful cast, whether talking about the film that we're set to adapt or even various incarnations of the game itself. (Did you know that there was actually a game show version in the UK? Look it up on YouTube; it's rather interesting!)

Thankfully, 3DF has the talent to do it. Your favorite VAs return to take on the wackiest suspects known to man. Minor roles have yet to be determined, but the main seven are as follows: James Hall as Wadsworth the butler, Jason Marnocha as Colonel Mustard, Samantha Ylagan as Mrs. White, Dylan Spencer as Professor Plum, Rina Adachi as Ms. Scarlet, Pam Larson as Mrs. Peacock, and Curt Rose as Mr. Green.

More news to come!

P3 Special Edition, This Sunday 8/5


So I previously mentioned something about a big special edition of the P3, our Post-Production Podcast. It's still on. It's still going to happen. Real life and scheduling and what not just tends to get in the way. It's a pain, but it's true. 3DF is sadly not our day job.

With some free time opening up, we are proceeding as planned. This Sunday, August 5th, some of 3DF's Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji fan-audio cast will be gathering to record a special post-finale edition of the P3. Memories, reminiscing, derailed conversation by the first subject, you know, the usual!

But free time isn't the only reason. August 5th is also the first anniversary of our first audio, His Butler, Able. We officially debuted the project on 8/5/11, and it's been a wonderful year since. So what better day to get together and celebrate the project that started it all?

Currently RSVPed the affirmative and scheduled to attend are the following: Jason Marnocha (Sebastian, Drocell, Eric Slingby), Rina Adachi (Ciel, Luci from Stella), Curt Rose (Grell, Finny), Dylan Spencer (William, Baldroy), Samantha Ylagan (Lizzie, Alois, Stella Brooks from Stella) and Pam Larson (Mey-Rin, Kat from Stella). Denise Kelter (Paula) is also planning to step in for an appearance. Please be aware, any of this can change at any time.
