Last night we recorded some final VO lines from Jen Page over at Ed Walker’s house, and they turned out great! I haven’t seen either of them in a while, so it was a treat. I’m going to start the stylized animation work for the voice over, and then hopefully we’ll have a new finished scene! I just read the new epilogue for the Project London novel, and it blew me away.
