    This is really cool and inventive. Everyone should check it out.

    It also has the virtue of being finished. ;)

    High praise indeed. And I doubt I would have finished a thing had it not been for the enthusiasm and support of the voice actors, all of whom did a stupendous job.

    Though that Spiff guy was SUCH a prima donna, and seeing as doubleohfive has left this board for good I can say that his endless demands for more money almost ruined the whole damn project.

    Hey, in these parts "finished" is award-worthy. And I'm not a bit sensitive about "Exeter," no siree...

    The vocal characterizations in "Star Freighter" are unusually good for a volunteer production. I like most all of them, but especially the engineer.

    Yep, Vinnie did a wonderful job. Some of the female cast members are smitten with him, which is pretty typical of him in real life as well.

    Does he act, other than voice-over? Does he live around here? Does he have head shots?

    He lives around here, doesn't act formally, and in fact is an exceptionally talented artistic photographer. His work has appeared in the City Paper and at least one major gallery showing.

    I heard he refused to come out of his trailer until every last green M&M was removed from the entire studio lot -- AND that he asked to make sure to get all the W&Ws too.

    Hey, apparently it costs a lot to be awesome.

    ^^Dude, don't defend that guy. If he ever comes back, I advise you to avoid him like the plague.

    If it doesn't have any torture scenes or transporter accidents involving Mr. Linzk I'm going to be terribly disappointed. :(

    He whines and cries like a little baby, if that helps.

    You can tell it's CGI if you look close enough.

    Well, most of you guys might not be able to, but I've had experience with this type of thing.
