Things have been a bit quiet around this blog lately. I’ve been working quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. I did a couple of small video games, a local radio spot for Hoppers Grill & Brewery, some example material for an English-as-a-second-language program, and came what I’m led to believe was a flip of a coin away from being J.A.R.V.I.S. for an Ironman mobile comic. But while it’s always nice to brag about my career, that’s not the real reason for this post.
It’s doubtful that anybody reading this knows my origins in the world of voice over, so I’ll start with a little history. I made a small splash back in August 2005 with an amateur web-released radio play called The Chalice of Silvermoon. I wrote, directed, produced, voiced… basically, I did everything for the first few months until I brought my best friend, Erik Sanburn, in to split the workload with me. We found a home on a little site called WoW Radio (now extinct), a live shoutcast/podcast hub for fans of World of Warcraft. Over the course of four years, while dabbling in talk radio podcasts off and on, we developed a moderate fanbase with our silly radio play. Perhaps the peak of our popularity happened relatively early on with a machinima rendition of our pilot episode we used to win a couple of awards in the 2006 competition hosted by Xfire and Blizzard Entertainment. We continued the radio play, though not with the kind of frequency we would’ve liked, until some time in 2009 when we inexplicably and abruptly stopped.
We’ve been working on renewing the series for a while now, and we’re getting very close. During the past week, we finally made a public announcement about our new animated series, The Chalice of Evermoon. We actually wanted to keep it a secret all the way until release, but we need to get a little financial support from our fans in order to make it happen. I know the readership of KyleMcCarley.com isn’t exactly the same demographic. But this is, was, and always will be my pet project. And anybody who has a reason to read a blog written by a voice over actor is going to have plenty of reason to watch a professional caliber web cartoon. This thing’s going to be big. We just need a little help to make it happen.
So do us a favor. Hop on over to our GoFundMe page and offer a small donation. We don’t need a whole lot, and every little bit helps. Thank you, my friends.
