Jack done pretty well, needs too sound a little bitchier. But the rather ragey "NOOO!" was perfect.
Rodriquez was done perfectly fine.
Your turian voice filter is really good

The courier's "Ruun" was okay, but didn't seem panicked enough, but because its just one line its not a big deal. The "They're coming was fine, but panic should have escalated, the get out of there did that, but more, considering you know, explosion

Matt O'Connor still owns as the Codex guy.

A little note though: pauses seems unnatural. Khalisah should've been talking constantly in the background (more quiet) until radio was destroyed, not waiting for Jack/Rodriguez to finish their replics.
Still awesome though.

I understand your point. . . but there's actually a reason why the pauses are there. Take a look at the comic for EP10. . . you will see what I'm talking about. Once the EP10 audiobook comes out, it will probably make a lot more sense.

Good catch!

I read you. I've seen that episode, like, 10 to 20 times, maybe more. =) I'm not talking about runnning soldier parts (but some running sound would be good there too: stomping, panting, etc.) That's about parts like 0:16 for example, where Khalisah makes a pause so Jack could talk. In a comic it's on a same panel and happens kinda simultaneously. If your team could extend the script in way that Khalisah is talking without pauses (changing between quiet background and loud foreground) it would be totally cool.
Oh, and that "thwack" - I thought it was biotic trick like warp or singularity.

Yes, I know, criticizing is too easy comparing to actually creating, so I'll just say: keep it up, you're doing a totally awesome job.

Seriously, I don't mind the feedback. And when we end up going back and reediting at the end of the season, we will be considering all constructive feedback. We read all the comments, and we're always listening for good suggestions. So, keep it coming.

First I thought Jack's voice should be a little rustier, but after two more replays... you know what? Natalie f*cking nailed it. Excellent job!

In the codex they should get more specific..like shocklate, chocolate energy. Maybe they were afraid of being deported back to KENYA. That or they had too many babies to watch in order to squeeze that little part in.

i have to agree with the general consensus. Ms loftus is amazing, i could not tell she was playing both actors and her emotion at the end was great. However the random soldier chatter sounded a bit weird and distant but idk maybe that was what you were going for

Natalie did a good job but like ~Epantiras said more anger.

:iconjeffdaniel:
jeffdaniel Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
As stated in a response below. . . Why would Jack be angry at this point in the story? She loved her students. First time in her life that she cared for others. She's coaching her team. Teaching them how to survive. Why would she be angry?

So, while I really appreciate your feedback, I will respectfully have to disagree.
