Title: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign (closed)
Post by: Slasher on February 17, 2009, 05:25:06 am
I'm working on a four-mission mini-campaign for The Babylon Project and am looking for about 10 people to help with the voice acting for the intro.  Each person would have between 6-12 lines.  Knowledge of TBP or Babylon 5 would be marginally helpful but by no means required.  If you're interested please let me know.  

Preview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAmCwHBgktQ&feature=channel)

Update, October 31st, 2009: Looking for voice actors for the rest of the missions now.  Posted some videos below.  The roles are varied enough that I'm not looking for any specific voice type right now.  

Update, November 18, 2009: Looking for two voice actors.  One female to do two lines, one either male or female to do six or so miscellaneous lines.  

Update, December 20, 2009: All roles filled.  A big Thank You goes out to everyone who pitched in.  You guys and gals are awesome.  Because of you, a release is imminent, and I can get this off my back before Christmas.

No knowledge whatsoever about the B5 Universe, but I've voiced for a TBP Project before (Something Skullar was working on)

Thanks for responding Dilmah G.  If you're willing, here are the lines below:

  • "One down!"
  • "Flight Group Tau reporting contact with objectives Hotel 2 and Charlie 2."
  • "Pilots, we're taking torpedo hits.  Burgoyone Fire Control, could you give us some more plasma along the forward starboard quadrant?"
  • "Confirmed!  Registering two Whitestars at five clicks!"









Okay cool, I'll record those for you sometime over the next 48 hours, it's school week and as such the aformentioned is pretty busy.

Slasher, if you still need someone, you can count on my help. :)

Oh I completely forgot about this. Are you still in need?

Post by: Slasher on February 24, 2009, 02:01:45 pm
Certainly, if you guys are still willing.  Darkblade, I'll post the lines after I get back from work.  In the meantime, here's a video of the in-game cutscene I captured.  My computer did a horrendous job of picking up audio so this is a silent film. :)

If you still need help I could voice a line or two.

PM me if you need me.

Okay well on this PC I'm currently unable to do much sample-wise, so you'll have to refer to the ones on the first link i posted

If you still need some VA's let me know.

I can send you over some samples if you want.

Thanks

Thanks for your responses guys.

SirHelm, I saw your other message first so I replied to that one.

Here you go.  Sorry for the delay.  These are initial versions; if you want a different tone or inflection on any of them, let me know and I'll be happy to redo the line.

Superbly done on all counts, Renegade Paladin.  Thanks for your time. 

There's still a few roles left if anyone else wants to try.  I need a couple of older sounding voices if possible for the captains of the Cato and the Knossos.

Post by: Penfold on April 05, 2009, 08:29:35 pm
Slasher,

If any roles are still available, I'd be glad to audition for you.
Don't tell anyone, but I AM old!!!
Contact me here at Hard-Light, or at [email protected]

Thanks,
Penfold

Bumping this again because I'm starting to wrap up the actual FREDding on the campaign.  I'll have more info soon, but I figured a head start on the voice acting wouldn't hurt.

Did you need more actors Slasher?

Small Sample version:  http://www.4shared.com/file/66445503/3248397d/Getters_samples.html

PM if you sense potential.

Title: Re: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign
Post by: Slasher on July 21, 2009, 06:17:18 am
Thanks Getter Robo G, more help is always appreciated.  I'll contact you later this week.

Also I've put up an early release of the campaign for testing, click here.  [link removed: campaign release imminent]

If anyone sees a role they want to voice let me know.  In particular, I'm looking for someone with an older sounding voice for the role of the captain of the Knossos.  Either that or someone who has an accent so it's easier to differentiate between people in-game.
Title: Re: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign
Post by: Slasher on October 31, 2009, 01:52:51 pm
Bumping this again.  The roles are varied enough that I could make use of any voice type.  For those who don't know what TBP is like in-game I posted some videos below.

[video links removed: the campaign will be released within the next two days]

Oi! I wan't to get some stuff done, the more i do the better i get. Give me some lines / audition or otherwise please :D
My voice is pretty unique, and i can attempt a style too. I'm two (at least) different people in Blue Planet. See if you can tell who when it's released on thursday :yes:

Thanks for the reply, Colonel Dekker.  I sent you a PM.

Definitely good enough.  Thanks Something.  :yes:

Post by: Slasher on November 18, 2009, 05:57:48 pm
Provided everyone gets back to me eventually I think I have all the major roles covered!  :eek2:

I could use one more person to do eight miscellaneous lines spread across the four missions.  Any takers?

I'll do those two lines (the Crimson 3 and Brakiri) you gave me in the PM. What kind of voice would a Brakiri have by the way as I have no knowledge of the Babylon 5 'verse?
Title: Re: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign
Post by: Slasher on November 18, 2009, 07:30:08 pm
Thanks Something, you're starting to become a real regular at this. :D

The Brakiri in the series all spoke English pretty normally.  This was the only video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8b13GaUlj4) I could find on short notice.  The Brakiri dude is the one holding the skull tchotchke.  If I recall correctly they don't all sound like that but it can serve as one example I suppose.

Hope I'm not being a voice whore, all stealing from others. Hopefully, I'll sound different enough so it doesn't sound like I'm talking to my self.

The two lines in question aren't consecutive or part of the same conversation.  As a matter of fact it would be next to impossible for players to hear them within a few minutes of each other unless they know what they're doing.
Title: Re: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign
Post by: Slasher on December 03, 2009, 02:51:31 pm
Still looking for a few more people.  Depending on who I hear back from or not the roles might be big (10-20 lines) or small (less than 10).  I recorded some new videos for those who are interested.

Post by: Colonol Dekker on December 03, 2009, 03:08:20 pm
Slasher, rest assured i'm going to have a bloody good go at the three roles you sent me. Feel free to tweak as needed.
They'll sound similar but different........ :nervous:
Title: Re: Voice actors needed for TBP mini-campaign
Post by: Slasher on December 03, 2009, 04:05:43 pm
Thanks for replying, Colonel Dekker.  

If I can get those three roles out of the way, and provided one of my other main voice actors gets back to me, then there's less than a dozen lines left for the campaign.  I might actually be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

*light is oncoming bullet train*

*is hit*

owwww....

/me picks up Slasher and dusts him off


Don't panic mate, i sent you a PM with a link to 3 roles worth of complete voice that i just did. Ten minutes work roundabout total.

Gimme a shout if you want nationalities amended :lol: You'll know what i mean when you hear it :nervous:

Need one more person to do eight lines and I can get this out by Christmas.  Preferably someone who hasn't already volunteered.

I strongly urge anyone and everyone to contribute to this. . .
 
It looks to be a bloody good campaign.

Well, uhh... Which lines are needed? I can never keep track of these threads - You never know when a role is taken, so I need some options listed!  :)

Hi Nemesis6, I sent you a private message with the details.
