Hey guys! As many of you know, I've spent the better part of the year prepping this major project: a motion comic version of IDW's TMNT comic series featuring a full cast of voices to bring the characters to life. While I still need a bit more time before I can announce the official premiere date, I can tell you that the entire cast has been hard at work, pumping out unbelievable performances that we can't wait to share with you.

I will be posting more previews in the future and will share them right there, as well as any news and updates, including the eventual announcement of our premiere date, so be sure and keep an eye on this thread and subscribe to StarForce Media's YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgZUFZiZAi7LIOAEg_rg7RA).

Also, for those who may have missed it, the sneak peek of the show's intro video:

That's pretty cool, dude. Nice work. While I am a little saddened that I didn't get cast, I'm pleasantly surprised to see how this turns out.

Desslok
11-02-2015, 09:07 PM
What's this?! Two for the price of one? That's right, you ARE seeing double! Here are 2 entirely new preview videos, this time featuring a look at some of the villains and some fun interaction between Michelangelo and Raphael.

Preview #3, featuring Shredder and Karai:

I am getting really excited for an official release! Krang sounds PERFECT!!

Tarris Vaal
11-03-2015, 03:30 PM
Really cool :)

Seconding the shout out for Kraang - but also really like Mikey and Traag's voice as well

I dont pity the guy who does Traag's throat after he's finished recording though ;)

Loving the voices so far; a good cast by the looks of it!

Can't wait to hear voices for Old Hob, Alopex and Baxter Stockman!

Jester sounds like Seth Green playing Leo

Sabacooza
12-31-2015, 07:05 AM
Any idea when the first episode will be released?

PangolinFeets
12-31-2015, 07:59 AM
I was hoping to get the same info. Is there an ETA on a release?

Desslok
12-31-2015, 05:52 PM
Unfortunately Jester had to drop out of the project for personal reasons and I've had to take some time to recast him. My new Leonardo has fortunately begun recording and as soon as I start getting stuff from him I'll be able to complete the first few episodes. Most of the cast (about 30 people I've had to keep up with, yes I'm insane :P) has already recorded through about 70 issues of TMNT comics so it has taken some time but we're getting very close now.

HOWEVER since you've all been so good and supportive, I have a special New Years Eve treat for you...


A FULL episode of our new series! It's not the official series premiere, but my goal was to get at least one episode out by the end of the year and now I can say that I have. And what could be more appropriate than Michelangelo's New Years Eve adventure? Do enjoy and for the best experience watch in HD and use some nice headphones:

DVs-Uo0Dy40


NOTE: Since I am still waiting for my new Leo's lines, the Leo voice in this video is not the real deal. Since he only as one line I used a fill in so I could get this episode to you today. :twink:

Tarris Vaal

And damn, I can't believe you have over 70 done. @.@

01-02-2016, 06:03 PM
Nice I liked this micro and glad to see it get a nice dub. Now I'm curious how you will do the Splinter Micro as I liked that one a lot as well. Quick question, will you be doing the infestation cross over? I thought it was a nice one off story.

It's the first of the hero micros, this one starring Raphael! Plenty of action as well as the debuts of Alopex and two very familiar street thugs...

Thanks again for all the feedback guys, I always enjoy reading your thoughts. I know some of my cast members lurk around here too and they REALLY enjoy feedback. :lol:

After a trek into the first hero micros this week we're back to the ongoing series with #6:

Alright, guys here's the Donatello micro! I think this is my favorite of all the one's I've worked on so far. This issue has loads of fun dialogue and our Donatello (played by the incomparable Eric Shonk) really brought his 'A' game.

Do enjoy!

Another well done episode. Do you plan on doing any of the minis like "infestation" and such?

Machias Banshee
07-21-2016, 08:43 PM
I just binge-watched everything from Raph's micro up to the most recent issue.

You guys are doing a phenomenal job! The sound quality is great, the delivery is perfect and the voices for each character just feels right. I love checking out every video. :)

Desslok
07-27-2016, 03:20 PM
Technogeek29/Machias Banshee - Thanks so much for your continued enthusiasm and feedback it's much appreciated. I've been so lucky to find the cast members that I have, they're incredible talents and nice people to work with. I've been able to make a lot of good friends working on this series.

Sabacooza: No plans for "Infestation" at the moment, but as you know we're doing the micros as we go along and we'll also be doing "Secret History of the Foot" and "Utrom Empire." I hope you'll look forward to those with anticipation. :D

And now, who's ready for TMNT #8?

And that's it! Season 1 is now in the history books. A lot of people weren't sure we could make it this far, but our amazing team of voice actors has shown an incredible amount of dedication to this project and for that I am eternally grateful to them. I also want to thank all of our viewers for helping to make these first episodes of our comic dub series such a successful venture. Your likes, subscribes, shares and feedback are the fuel that keep us going. :twink:

AND... we're not done yet. Keep a watchful eye out.

Season 2 arrives in 2017.

Sabacooza
12-04-2016, 12:01 AM

01-30-2017, 08:22 PM
Hey guys! It's been a while since our last update but I did want to let you all know that season 2 is currently in production. As we speak I am working on the visual elements of the episodes and will start editing audio once that process is complete. I hope to be able to announce the season premiere date in the near future.

In the meantime, if anyone is interested in lending their voice to one of the small guest roles in season 2, I am currently accepting auditions over at BTVA: https://goo.gl/muQVuQ

Thanks again to everyone here for your continued support and enthusiasm, we'll have more great content soon, so do stay tuned! :twink:

I'd consider pitching in for Queen Gizzla (and maybe Ma'riell when you get around to that...).

EDIT:
Just sent in my submissions :)

01-31-2017, 01:54 PM
I hope you guys also cover the Krang micro :) Would like to hear some convos between Krang and his dad. By the way Desslok, your Krang voice sounds a little like King-Cold from DBZ which is a good thing xD. I enjoyed it pretty much.

Else keep up this good work and i can't wait to see Utrom Empire going on :D(if that happens)

Utrommaniac
01-31-2017, 01:56 PM
Yeah, they are. They've been doing the minis and micros, and there was even a casting call for Quanin and Lorqa for the first set.

Tarris Vaal
02-01-2017, 04:20 AM
Thrown in a few more auditions for you Desslok!

I was wondering if you wanted some general fighting/dying sound effects as well?

02-01-2017, 04:23 PM
Just found this thread. Loving the videos so much that I subbed. Keep it up!

Desslok
02-04-2017, 10:23 PM
Thanks, guys, I appreciate the kind words. And yes, the Krang micro and Utrom Empire micro series are both in our planned line-up so there will be plenty of Krang/Quanin moments to come. :D

And thank you for the auditions Utrommaniac and Tarris Vaal. To answer your question, Tarris - absolutely! Please send me as much as you'd like. I can't tell you how invaluable your Foot Ninja fight recordings have been. So far you've voiced something like 85% of them, lol. I keep going back to those files and could always use more. Your voice work for Neutrino scientist Felix will also be coming up this season, I look forward to working on those episodes.

Desslok
04-13-2017, 08:42 PM
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've posted about our progress here. We're still hard at work on the upcoming season and I can assure you that there's plenty of good stuff to come. Although we're not yet ready to announce the season 2 premiere date... we are at the point where previews can start being shared!

SO, enjoy this special preview scene from the season 2 opener: the Casey Jones micro!

For some reason, it's not showing my audition for Queen Gizzla on the casting call page? What's up with that?

Desslok
05-11-2017, 11:24 PM
Unfortunately BTVA is notorious for that. After several weeks some auditions are randomly removed. It's a feature that has caused me some frustration in the past as well.

Utrommaniac
05-11-2017, 11:40 PM
Ah, okay. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't loaded them wrong.

If you haven't found voices already, I'd also be happy to do Drexl and this lil dude

Thank you all again for your tremendous patience as we worked to prepare season 2 for prime time. There's a lot of good stuff coming your way in the months to come and I think you'll all really enjoy it.

We'll be back in two weeks with TMNT #14! :D

Well, those pronunciations of "Utrominion" and "Quanin" were a lot different than I expected. Almost shocking.

I pronounce them as "Utrom-minion" (like a portmanteau of "Utrom" and "dominion") and "Quanin" as "Kwa-nin".

Though, it does leave for some fun imagining a child Utrom learning to speak/having a speech impediment, having some trouble enunciating "Utrom-in-on".

Finally a chance for our April to shine! And shine she does in... the April micro!

The guys did a great job with the Slash stuff! And Fugitoid came out great :) Looking forward to the next one.
