The Lazy Effect
Note: if I was mistaken for placing this here, please let me know but from what I understand from the rules of several forums, I should post it here. So without further ado...
Mods, I saw that you may not advertise for your own forum or website, so I figured linking to the work itself is allowed. If I'm wrong, let me know and I'll remove the link for the latest episode two lines down
New roles read on! Extending the deadline due to a lack of auditions.
The fandom for this non-profit machinima is that of Mass Effect, but really anyone can enjoy it (if it's your kind of humor).
The Lazy Effect is about an odd guy named Lazy who discovers he can't die. At least, not permanently. What follows is a series of wacky adventures shown through machinima and quirky voice acting.
The new Phenton, Shade and Thomas character trailers can be found here:
And check out my account/channel that posted it to see the 17 episodes that have been made so far (15 with people from this very forum!)
Think this is some rookie's very bad mass effect parody? Think again! The Lazy Effect: Episode 17: The Landing
Well, if you compare it to the professionally made games... that's not really fair, is it?
Fifth rollcall! second try
One-time role: Quarian operator (speak with a professional tone and a Russian or East European accent; the quarian voice filter will be applied by myself)
Quarian operator: Unknown ship inbound, prepare to fire!
Naeli (distressed, reciting quickly): This is Naeli’Tium nar Shellen, requesting permission to dock and help fight the geth!
Quarian operator: Please verify this, young pilgrim.
Naeli (stately, solemnly): For far too long, I have not seen my people. For far too long, I have been adrift in the empty quarters of the stars. But though I’ve never felt the touch of our homeworld’s soil, I long for my people’s embrace upon my return.
Quarian operator: Permission granted. Go to exterior docking cradle 7 at these coordinates. We embrace you Naeli’Tium and welcome home.
New side character that will appear more often as the series gets near the ending: Zaeed2, a gruff mysterious figure, that is nonetheless very protective of 'Crazy', a deranged woman that can track the guy she's obsessed with: Lazy.
Zaeed2 (cautious, yet gruff): We shouldn’t stay here for too long.
Crazy (so creepy!): Laaaaazyyyyy…
Zaeed2 (warning): Command said no contact. If the geth catch onto our presence, we’ll be dead before we can stretch a limb.
Crazy stays silent.
Zaeed2 (more caring): Did you take your injections? They make your mind clearer.
Crazy (so creepy!): They empty your head…
Zaeed2 (cryptic): Some of us would see that as an improvement. *beat* They’re moving.
Zaeed2 (observing): Their ride will be here soon. Better get on it.
Crazy (creepy confident): I’ll find him. I alwayssss track him down.
Zaeed2 (reminding): It’ll only take you a while, won’t it. Come on.
Note: Any machinima actors are also welcome, as are people with other certain skills (to be able to machinima act for the series requires owning one or more of the games and downloading MSI Afterburner to record things in the games I can't).
