Banter upgrade! More natural, less forced.

Also, a marked lack of tails on the word balloons. Can you imagine what a mess that would be, wiring up twenty lines of dialogue? It’s a damned good thing that Tantek has one of those Big Deep Vin Diesel Voices, or the conversation would be pretty hard to follow.

Fun fact: Unlike pretty much every scene prior to this one, this page and the last two have been reformatted in a manner similar to the old production style – lay it down, do the dialogue, clean it up. One page at a time. Most of the other scenes have been mass produced – pre-format several pages, assemble several pages, spend forever on cleanup and adjustments, then dialogue, then spit-shining. Several pages in the air at any one time, and it made laying down the dialogue a real pain in the ass.

Reverting to form certainly has its advantages – three pages pretty much completely Done in one night, instead of parts of all four pages of the scene.

Hell, if I could maintain three a day, this thing would be done in two months!

Perish the thought!
