Preview excerpt from Hail Regina – Episode One

"After the crash…"
"It is 2027. The tribulation leading to the almighty rapture of the great economic crash is over. Its devastation pervades throughout the congregation of states. No inferior or superior citizen has been spared from its aftermath. There was life before the crash - and an altered life thereafter.

The institutional towers of the securities exchanges have been dismantled in every jurisdiction, never to be opened again. Most, but not all of the financial institutions were saved from collapse. They have survived to transform as a more contrite, shrunken system. A remnant of what they once were. Those that perverted the financial trading system; those that deceived the citizens and the states; those who caused the crash were hunted down.

The State-leader, Royston Bustwick, Commodore Peterson and the twelve oligarchs of the Secular Party, oversaw their punishment. It included flagellation in the underground chastisement chambers of St. Dandy’s Cathedral".

The media for the HR project is broad in scope - and requires experimentation and an (on-line) talent pool for vocals (M&F), voice-over, foley FX. Current production - an EP, e-radio dramatization play (9.55mins) and (29.56mins). HRAF also has excellent & affordable external mix engineering and mastering expertise available, for projects that need mentoring or development for commercial release.

M & F vocals required - looking for specific voice types - currently am looking for a voice that is similar to 'Celeste Prince' for example. If you are an experienced vocalist, please drop us an email via this site - a bit of audio of your sound - would be useful (fidelity not important) and we'll get back to you. Interest is welcome.
