Voice Acting Blue Planet
Now looking for people to help voice-act Darius’ campaign Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius. If you’re interested, please send samples to me or General Battuta. (or post them here, I suppose.)

If you’re interested in a particular role, please send samples specific to the role so we know what you can do. Unfortunately, scripts are not yet available for the minor or supporting characters, so you'll have to ad-lib (or, if you're dedicated, pull a line from Blue Planet.)

Scripts will be sent to the actors when they’re available.

Cast:

(CAST) Samuel Bei Cheow Keng: Male, 30’s. Pearl River Delta/Hong Kong accent (optional), otherwise no specific accent required
Quote
“I had family in Guangzhou, Alpha 3. I understand how you feel. But what can we do about it? All we can do is find out who was responsible for this catastrophe.”

“Alpha wing, for the moment we're stuck here until reinforcements arrive. Fight for your very lives, each one of you!”

(CAST) Phillip Corey: Male, 20-30’s. British Received Pronounciation accent (optional) otherwise no specific accent required. (If Ransom Arceihn would be willing to play this role, that would be perfect.)
Quote
“Commander Bei is right, Taylor. We need to gather information to find out who did this. I'm calibrating my sensors to search for debris other than Terran. These Aurora sensor modules ought to be good for something.”

“Doesn't the word 'tradition' mean anything to you, Taylor? This is the standard GTVA procedure for initiating diplomatic contact with a new faction. We've always been doing this.”

(CAST) Mina Taylor
: Female, 20’s. West Coast American accent.
Quote
“Holy crap! What the hell happened to Earth? Are we even AT Earth?”

“I don't remember there being an Orion hulk in this system...hell, I don't remember there being NOBODY in this system. Where the hell are we?”

“Sweet fortune. This is it. This is the end.”

Admiral Bei Wen Jian: Male, 60’s. Pearl River Delta/Hong Kong accent.
(CAST) Esmar Al’Fadil: Male, 30-40’s. Middle-Eastern accent.
GTD Orestes comms officer: Male. No specific accent required.
(CAST) GTD Temeraire comms officer: Female. No specific accent required.
Captain Katashi Iwakura: Male, 30-40’s. Japanese accent.
(CAST) Tell: Male, 30’s. No specific accent required.
(CAST) Rear Admiral Carey: Female, 40-50’s. No specific accent required.
(CAST) GTD Sanctuary comms officer: Female. Eastern European/Russian accent.
Minor ships comms officer: Male. No specific accent required.
(CAST) Lieutenant Nehru: Male, 20-30’s. Indian accent.

NB: A good example of a cultured Pearl River Delta accent would be Chin Han’s performance in Dark Knight (Mr Lau), or the female Chinese aide voiceover/Agent Black Lotus in C&C Generals.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
If you’ve got samples, we want them. We’re not going to cast anyone without hearing him/her first. It’s easiest if you send them to us or post them here so we don’t have to go hunting for them.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
We really need someone with acting skills to play Samuel Bei. He's going to be the most difficult and most important character.

The accent is totally optional.

It'd help if it matched his father though, right?

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Since his father has far fewer lines, it'd be easier to get the father to match the son. But yes, you're definitely right.

 
Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
I could try doing some lines.

I have no specific accent(well maybe a bit "Eastern European" since I am from Poland) but I can possibly fake one if needed.

My voice is deep and clear, Good for command or an officer type.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Awesome, thanks! We'll check the samples out.

Once Silent Threat: Reborn is released, Goob has suggested he might share some of his voice-acting sources, which are at a semiprofessional or professional level. With luck, this'll make our job significantly easier.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
I tried the GTD Temeraire. It's tough for me to fake a woman's voice. I used Audacity to modify the pitch.

Temeraire


Also tried Tell.


This can help me pass the time until War in Heaven is released.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
I'm sorry, azile, but there's too much microphone hiss -- and some noticeable pop -- for us to use those.

We also have plenty of female voice talent available, so don't worry about modifying your voice.

However, Commander Tell was pretty good (at least by my own personal judgment.) If you get a better microphone, try recording some more samples.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Alright. I think that Audacity has some noise suppression, so don't count me out yet.

Edit: Alright, I used some voice suppression and altered the volume, so it sounds much cleaner. Attached.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Huh...I don't know what's going on, but there's a kind of echo, and the sound wasn't actually much clearer. The volume on the sample seemed really low.

If you don't have the gear, don't worry about it, but if you feel like you can get one that's crisp, keep on trying!

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Is the Vishnans voices going to be sort off . . . echoey and mystic-like?  It suits their character.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
That's up to Darius. For now we're planning to stick with just the whispers, but if we can find a credible voice actor and apply proper effects, it might work out. I wouldn't object if they sounded like Protoss or something similar.

Re: Voice Acting Blue Planet
Well, I can't do any more samples if I tried, because my dog decided to pee on the microphone. It must have shorted something out, because it doesn't record any noise. I'll just spend another $20 on a good microphone.
