I was very happy to see this ending when I got the script. Luckily I had already designed a colt version of Derpy in a Time Out With Doctor Whooves storyline I did awhile back, so I just reused that. However what really made me happy was that I got to voice the Male Derpy. Pierce asked me to do it and I gladly accepted. I actually did a few different takes and variations since Pierce didn’t give me any specifics on what he wanted Male Derpy to sound like. One was a more over the top deep voice, the other was a more wacky sounding one, and the take that was eventually used was just me talking with my normal voice while imitating Pierce’s Derpy. So yeah, Male Derpy’s voice is pretty much my voice, I actually talk like that. You could argue on wether or not that’s a good thing but in my opinion it’s something to be proud of.
Doctor is Derpy and Derpy is Tick Tock and Tick Tock is the Doctor…Okay you’ve got that down?
For awhile during production of this short I wondered how we were going to tell who was in who’s body. In most body swapping cartoons the character’s voice is carried over with the brain into the other body, but we obviously couldn’t do that since this was an audio drama. Luckily the voice actors could easily pull off imitating each other’s accents and the way their characters talk. Pierce Smoulder came up with the idea of having the characters’ eye colors switch along with the brains.
I decided to change my commission prices, this is because I’ve realised that over time since I started commissions my work has imporved and I thought the former prices didn’t match up to the current qaulity of my work. So I changed the prices in order to match the improvement.
