I've never considered it, tbh. I don't think my accent would be suitable.

I can see why. But then, better yours than mine ;).

I've thought about it - but I don't have time for the production aspect. As in, I'll read whatever you want (it's not like I don't spend 2-4hrs a week recording and listening to my own voice yammer on, anyway) ... I just can't be involved in the organization/production of it.

I've never made a podfic, so I have no idea what the production involves XD. I didn't even know so much work is involved.

I've never done podfic specifically. But I know for our podcast - my producer/editor spends several days editing. Of course, that's a conversation and so there is more to edit. But it would still be a process.

And - for some reason when I read this I thought: "Marta wants a podcast that churns out tvd podfic" (like Strangely Literal, the Whedonverse podcast that produces a podfic on a pretty regular basis) ... something like that would require a team of people finding, reading, deciding on fic to produce - several voice actors, and a producer. Not to mention a site and internet space.

Podcasting is it's own world, dearie. And it's not a simple thing.

I think just turning one of your own pieces into a podfic and starting from there would be lovely and might allow you to see what is involved. But a long-term solution to the complete ~lack of podfic in the tVD fandom. Girl. PROJECT.

Whoa, I didn't have anything that organized in mind! I'm certainly not fit to run a project like that XD. This was just a random thought that I had, because, well, we don't have podfic in this fandom.

I have never even heard of such a thing, but yeah, that would be weird. I couldn't do it. I would probably end up laughing the whole way through it.

And yet so helpful when you dust or do dishes ;).

See, I listen to music and get plot bunnies when I'm cleaning. It's a vicious cycle, actually...

Tell me about it. I might post yet another D/E fic today if everything goes well... Had a killer plotbunny on a train today.

I'd actually really enjoy doing that!

Hmm, must ponder. If you don't want to record yourself reading your fic, might I offer to read one of yours for you?

OMG would you? To be honest, I was selfishly thinking about stuff I could listen to while performing dull household activities. But I'd also be thrilled to have something of mine in audio, because I'm vain like that.

I don't want to record myself reading any fic in English because my intonation is really funky when I read out loud. But I can think of a few authors I'd love to have in audio, so I thought I'd do some good old filthy enabling.

I WOULD! Which fic would you maybe wanna do? I might be total crap at it, but honestly I kinda enjoy doing readings. I took a poetry class last spring where I had to do a reading for a grade (instead of writing a paper) and I was super into it.

I dunno, I think there can be a charm to having a foreign intonation to English. It just brings personality to it, yanno. You should think about doing it! In addition to assigning me one to read :))))))

I've considered it, yes, because I really love to read things aloud. (Yes, yes, I confess I just love the sound of my voice and the feeling of words on my tongue.) But I'm always afraid I will pronounce something incorrectly :( And my accent is not really British and I do not really like that XD

upupa_epops December 5 2012, 21:14:28 UTC
Same! I do read out loud (poetry more often than fic, but still), but, lol, my accent is a fake.

I'll have to try it one day, though...

I need to make a podfic in Polish... Sooner rather than later ;).
