"Timmy Has Left the Nest"

Way back in November of '08, several people around the world participated as voice actors in the sequel to "The Birds Are Honest," a ridiculous little video/animation I made involving bird skeletons. Both videos were separate assignments for the video art class I was taking at the time and, unfortunately, I ran out of time to finish the sequel in the way it was planned in the storyboards the actors used as script. I think all of the voice actors have since seen the video that came of it anyway, but somehow I never got around to posting it here. Oops? In any case, here it is!

(Note: if the video doesn't work for you, try
back in an hour. Dunno why it does that.)

Timmy --- voiced by Kat Bongard
Wagner --- voiced by Maureen Babb
La Rouge --- voiced by "Grumpy" Bongard
Crunching leaves sounds --- The Free Sound Project user: HerbertBoland
Nocturnal nature sounds --- The Free Sound Project user: laurent
Gong sound (before manipulation) --- The Free Sound Project user: Incarnadine

(By the way, since a few people now have been confused by this, Timmy is voiced by Kat Bongard, not me! I'm Kate, she's Kat. She's e-less! I did no voice acting because my microphone was simply never clear enough. Bah humbug...)

Bonus material!
A couple of outtakes tracks. This is what happens when you give Bongards permission to use microphones and funny voices, apparently!

"Bongard Stylings" Outtakes (1:34):

The Baguettes Outtakes (0:21):

...I still plan on finishing it out a bit more at some point. You guys should jab me in the eyeball if I forget again!
