A professional musician friend kindly helped me out with some voice recording today, in his nicely isolated home studio. We recorded about twenty five minutes of Grey Bloke material - enough to keep me animating for at least the next three months. And it sounds great; turns out that if you use a really expensive microphone, the sound quality is better. Who knew?
I now have no excuse to not get on with the animation. Which means more frequent YouTube updates - unless the Procrastination Demon decides to call.
