SIFF Memories with tabby Lloyd As I think it has become obvious, if you follow us on any of our social media, SIFF will be changing ownership as of the end of this seasonâ&#x20AC;Ś Minraed is currently working on a special farewell message, packed full of her own memories and stories and experience with SIFF through the first 12 seasons. Watch for it soon.
I had been anticipating the very scary machinima film The Maccus from director Destiny Simmer, but unfortunately that project has had to be put on hold. However, I am happy to learn that she will still be presenting a machinima at this, the 12th season of SIFF. We will have to stay tuned to disvover what this will be all about - described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a Sims dating simulatorâ&#x20AC;? I am intrigued

AldeusRamosVA is another new voice actor for this season. His channel has audition videos from a year ago, so I am guessing he has been in some pretty cool roles so far. I have yet to hear his work, but I am excited for his roles. For this season, Aldeus is voice as Oliver Fents in both and Season 2 which are directed by RobynASims, and Cop 2 in T by khcrazygirls and theElonianCass. It will be interesting to see how the same character is different in two separate productions. Aldeus will show off his acting skill in both a lead role and supporting role. We are excited and happy to welcome Aldeus to SIFF this season. We anticipate that all projects he is in, will be amazing.
NOVVAA is a fairly new voice actress with not many credits yet. She is also a Sims director entering this season with The Truth About Forever. I haven't been able to hear much of NOVVAA's voice, but I am excited to hear her voice this season. NOVVAA HERE on YouTube
NOVVAA is voicing as Ariel in by Sophia Wright, Kara in s by AshleyTheSimmer4Life, and Aviana in AshleyTheSimmer4Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All three seem like along the same genre, so it will be interesting to hear NOVVAA's voice as each different characters. It's always great to hear new voice actresses join SIFF and the voice acting community. All of us here at SIFF are rooting for NOVVAA and wish her good luck in all her performances
