I assume you'll be adding music as well?

Yup! I'll add background music to most chapters (IE: Chapter 2 would have a Le-Koro theme, because it's Lewa in Le-Koro)

Very cool. I did a audiobook of some of the bionicle serials back in the day, and that was quite fun. I'll be more than happy to audition for a part. I'll send you a PM about that.

However, I do want to just warn you. One of the reason I never did the actual books was fear of copyright, or a C&D order. While my guess is that these books have been long out of print at this point that it may not really matter anymore, you may want to take the time and contact Lego (assuming you havn't already done so) and get permission. Or you can just do it and hope they turn a blind eye. Either way, its up to you.  ;) 
Anyway, I'll send you a PM.

We'll be releasing them chapter-by-chapter. Recording has begun, but we haven't got any dates quite yet. Although, we hope to have the first book finished by the end of September.

An ambitious project to be sure. I wish you all the luck in the world and look forward to seeing the results. Are you going to be going through the books by release date then?
 
No surprise whatsoever that Eljay has a hand in this as Lewa. I'd also like to say that the voices lined up for Pohatu, Kopaka, and Gali are fantastic. Pretty much spot on with my head canon (although sometimes Kopaka did sound more like Steve Blum in my head...). My only concern is what seem to be some obvious issues with the playback quality. Granted, not everyone can afford a studio-level microphone, but I imagine something could probably be done in Audacity or somesuch to clean it up a bit.
 
Honestly, I'd be very interested in playing a part in all this. I just worry about having the time to do it in between school (that and what happens when one of the characters winds up with a MN accent? :P).

So.. like, this isn't violating any kind of copyright policy?

Ok, cool!

I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure then!

 

EDIT: Ok, Makuta's voice just sent me the chills! Awesome work on that Skullkid!

The Toa voices also sound great. This is going to a very good quality project.

That Makuta voice is spot on. I'd like to hear Onua's voice reading a more normal line though.

Wow. I love this. All of the voices in the trailer seemed so perfect. I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys make.

 

Also, question: does Kopeke come into the books, at all?

Hmm? Why do I ask? Oh, no reason. No reason at all.

 

heh heh heh

 

He has a very short number of lines in Downfall. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're interested in voicing him! :)

So long as we're not making money from it, I believe we are in the clear in terms of copyright laws. (Especially because the books are not being produced anymore).

 

And yes, Skullkid is a joy to have on the team :D

You'll get a chance to hear Grey in action in Chapter 3!

I voice Onua, and trust me, I don't like the trailer line either, but I can see why we used it.  But yeah, it's a legit line from the book and makes sense in context.

Chronicles 1.  He meets Onepu and tries to speak that way to him, thinking he might not speak the same language.

Can you use effects? Or does it just have to be voice talent?

 

It depends. What effects are you thinking of providing? :)

If you're considering using any sound effects at all in the narrations, I might be of some help with that as well - especially if there's any SFX from the films that you would want.

An electronic type effect. Something that sounds like it's coming from a robot (I'm planning on auditioning for a Bohrok-Kal  ;)).

That's not how copyright works. Though the internet as a whole seems to have this mentality that copyright only applies to money-making circumstances, it is incorrect. To site the books themselves (well, City of the Lost anyway; too lazy to find my books atm): "No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form, or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without written permission of the publisher." 

 

Though, to be fair, I wouldn't expect Scholastic to pursue copyright infringement on an out-of-print book that's not coming back into the print unless Bionicle gets VERY popular in the next few years.

 

(Edit: Fixed the second paragraph to make sense)

Yah, college is a downer when it comes to projects like this.

If it helps, Joev is very good at working around our schedules. Not to mention, their are small parts that will need to be filled!

That's good, hopefully I won't fall behind on homework. Figuring out who to voice is another matter though.

If we don't have the books, will you supply us with the text? Also, will you do the movie books as well? If so, I'd really like to voice Takanuva/Takua whatever. :)
