Edit 5Mar: Ok I think all parts of the world are now after 3Mar. Thanks for all the auditions. Gimme a little time to sort through them and I'll get back to ya
I have decided to go ahead with the voiceover project. I have chosen to work with 'Lost Children' (fav.me/d6vsw44
) because there is a slightly wider variety of voices (very slightly over 'Pranksters' haha). I know it is unfinished, but by the time I start this project, it probably will be. The aim is to make a short video out of the panels from the comic and add voices to the speeches.
There are three main parts I am looking for (if more characters appear in the comic, I'll update this journal)
As yet, I have not considered what sort of quality they should have (ie. accents, husky, etc) apart from the fact that they should sound like young male voices. The qualities will depend on the auditions I receive. And that I would like the three boys to exhibit different voice qualities to identify them from each other. I do want at least one of them to have a husky voice, so if your voice is husky, I'd love to hear it!
Here's how you can help. I need voice talents from among you. There are two ways that you may contribute to the audition:
1. Young boy voice (preferable)
if you know someone with an 'unbroken young boy' voice (eg. your younger brother, friend, etc) who is willing to provide a voice for one of the characters, I would love to hear them audition for a part a genuine boy voice will be more preferable than a female voice if they get chosen and they are under the age of 13, I'll need parental/guardian consent (somehow) includes if you are an adult male and you have a young sounding voice
2. Female voice
If you think you or another female have a voice that sounds like an 'unbroken young boy' voice, I wanna hear from you too because odds are there will not be enough boys to voice the parts
State which character(s) you are auditioning for. I will listen to your audition as the character you stated, but if I decide that you may be more suitable for another character, I will let you know.
You are allowed to audition for multiple characters.
Please read your parts from this audition picture
Maximum audition length 3 minutes
(this is so I don't have to listen to an audition that's 6 hours long xD) (give or take a minute or so)
Feel free to add any other bits that might help me decide the appropriateness of your voice for the part. You don't have to, it's optional. But you must
read from the audition picture as a bare minimum.
There are multiple ways for me to hear your auditions. You can either upload it on Youtube, or if you want it private, send me a note, or even through email. I don't mind in what manner I get it so as long as it reaches my ears.
Must have a clear mic/recording
Advice: Read like you're actually the character. Add emphasis, emotion, other bits and pieces to make it convincing.
Advice: There's no harm in trying different voices. You never know what version of your voice will inspire me to say 'YES that's it!'
All auditions must be in by 3rd March 2014
There are no clear judging criteria. Sorry, as this isn't an art contest (it's not even a contest), I can't give you guidelines only that it should be appropriate for the characters. It'll be quite subjective.
My decision is final
(If I cannot find suitable voices for all characters, I will most likely shelf this project for another time)
aaaand I can't think of anymore. If you have any questions whatsoever, don't hesitate to ask! And just have fun! I'm doing this for fun so whether you get it, or not get it, I hope you see it as an enjoyable process!
Can't wait to hear your lovely voices peoples!
