I mailed Stephan Weyte

Post by Tekedon » Dec 2nd, 2010, 19:54

I dropped him a line on his Vimeo page and I got an answer. He seems to be a nice guy. But I don't know if he mixed up my mail with somebody elses mail because he answered stuff I didn't even ask. Or maybe he read my mail wrong. Anyway.. here is what I asked and the reply

MY MAIL:

Hi Stephan!

I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I love your voice-work! First time I heard your work was in the pc-game Blood released in 1997. I remember already back then thinking how cool the voice was.

I was wondering if you have any fun memories of the voice recording for Blood? What was it like working with Monolith? It's quite a long time ago so It's understandable if nothing comes to mind.

But keep up the good work, I hope you get lots more jobs in the future!

Best regards, David


THE REPLY:


David: thanks for your kind words re Blood. You're right, it was so long ago, with many other recording sessions of various kinds since then, that I really can't remember much. I do remember, that it was fun for me to come up with my singing adlibs; they were not in the scripts. Computer geeks and gamers aren't performers; don't come from that background, so I had to supply the icing on the cake. Perhaps, because Caleb is so different from other game characters, that's the reason why, even know after 10 years or so, I still get lovely comments about my creation from all over the world. And NO, I have no idea about another Blood version. You'd have to bug Monolith about it.
Take care and just so you know, I'm really not a big communicator via Facebook or any other social media with people I've never met or who aren't personal friends. Just not into it - am from another generation.

So take care and good luck, Stephan Weyte

Ask questions and you will receive answers, easy as that! Great job, man. :D
That's the second letter that got posted over here. Another one by Mr. Red gathers dust in the closet.

It sounds like he gets a lot of mail from bloodites... And he seems to be annoyed by it, lol. :)
Face it people, no one can re-create the unique feel of Blood, only the gods have such power...

Yeah, that's the feeling I got too from his response. But it's understandable. I'm glad I kept my mail short just for that reason.. don't want to piss "mr Caleb" off ;)

I misread the first line as "I nailed Stephan Weyte".

My first reaction was "...high five...?"

Ha! I can answer that for you. His favorite food is flesh, his favorite drink is blood, and his favorite color is red. :wink:

Don't forget to ask, "boxers or briefs?"

Awesome stuff ~ At some point someone should make a 15-30 minute video about Blood and why its such an incredible gaming masterpiece that people still play.
