I asked a friend to come help me describe a couple of movies, primarily the original TMNT trilogy and maybe the first Wayne's world. The problem we're having is, I am trying to follow a more specific DBS guideline and he said that he doesn't think some of the stuff I'm wanting to describe is eve necessary, which some of it, yes, I can agree with. I'll give you an example.
The New Line Cinema logo. I told him nicely please give a description of the logo's animation, and he said that's not necessary, then went over and over about how things like that have no true relevance to the cause, which I told him I am aware but I was basically trying to be more on the professional side of things.
Then he proceeded to insist that DVS narration is like voice acting, which I actually was wondering if any truth of that is there, how close? I don't see them being remotely close, although they fall in the same field, voice acting and description narration are two different things and far apart from each other.
Additionally, he keeps relating everything we do here to Japan and Japanese things, mind you I live in the USA. he said that voice actors here get paid next tonothing, while voice actors in apan get paid like movie stars do here, which I am sure, due to all the anime and what not.
it's just frustrating, and it gave me a headache, I had it all planned out and instead of getting anything done, I ended up scrapping the project because it turned more into a discussion about how it should be done as opposed to it getting done.
Now don't get my motives wrong. I have nothing against my friend or his opinions in any way, shape, form, or fashion. it's just that, I'm trying to explain, overall, that video description is a very different field altogether, but it's a whole different world as opposed to what he's used to, and in the end, he's asying the things I'm asking, which I am sure are close to true, can cost an excessive of hundreds of dolars. I don't know, but I will get them done, even if I had to do it the same way I've done it before.
