Fun project alert! Help needed!

In the next few weeks I'm hoping to produce a recording of a Justice League cartoon featuring an all new soundtrack. I'm hoping that Walaka, Jimbo5, Soapy, et al will help me create the required audio. Then we'll have to dub our audio track over the ripped video file and rerecord the whole mess. When we're all done, I think it'll make for a good Spectration Spectacular at Casa Walaka. With enough beer and popcorn, I'm sure we'll all agree it was a raging success.

Originally I planned to write an entirely new script, but now I'm thinking it'll be enough work just to reproduce the existing dialogue. Instead of laughing at a postmodern commentary juxtaposing superheros and socialworkers, we'll just be laughing at Walter's impersonation of Batman! Considering how much effort will go into the sound effects, new music, voice acting, and editing, I'll be getting a huge "creative outlet" workout without bothering with the new script. And if we find it's not impossible to create this thing, maybe we can try something more ambitious.

So I chose a favorite episode of Justice League Unlimited to work with. It's titled "For the Man who has Everything." It features a small cast, tight story, lots of graphic violence and a fair bit of sentimentality. I'll need to cast Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Mongol (a dastardly villain), Superman's imaginary son Van-El, Supe's father Jor-El, Supe's imaginary wife (A Lois Lane type), a male robotic voice, Joe Chill (a thug) and the young Bruce Wayne. That may seem like a lot of voice talent but it's half the cast of any other episode... and some people may play multiple roles. So let me know if you can make it over to Walter's house some weekend in the near future and want a piece of the action.

I think I'm qualified to portray Superman's imaginary wife.

John, I hate to rain on your parade, but unless "the near future" includes the beginning of April, WWS Theatre will not be available. Otis heads to Hawaii on March 10. Between now and then, she has two free weekends, and one of them includes Oscar night,and she is incredibly busy. And starting Monday, I will be teaching 24 contact hours per week instead of 9, with all the concomitant responding/grading, and will be as crazy as I was last quarter.

That said, I'd love to do it in April. I'll do whatever role you need, since MM isn't in it, and Otis will do Van-el. (I think Soapy should be Mongul, but you're the director.)

Other fun project:

27 Sexually Charged Words

9 adjectives


18 nouns

heavy petting
golden showers
nipple ring
edible undies

(From Otis via me)

That'll get you some Google hits.

Casting thoughts as of Saturday night (after going to see Underworld 2 with Soapy.)

Superman = Clay (assuming he's up for the big responsibility)
Mongul = John (evil and lovin' it)
Batman = Walter or Jim
WonderWoman = Courtney
Lois = Diane
2 young boy rolls = Courtney/Mel
Jor-El = Jimbo5
Joe Chill = Walter (with NYC pride baby)
Robot = Soapy (plus he's gotta do all the music!)
