REQUEST: Voice acting!
With the Prologue campaign finished, we're need more voices to round out our voice talent. Previous voice work for another mod is preferred, but not required. Candidates should be serious and be able to sound like someone in their 20s. Openings are for miscellaneous ships and roles, with a strong emphasis on Confed fighter pilots.

We're also auditioning for a few major roles in the campaign, candidates must sound like an older person in their 30s to 50s

To become a candidate for this process, reply to this thread to officially let us know and then PM or email to [email protected] for more information.

Then try your luck on these 26 lines. Voice recording should be done in 44 khz mono. I shouldn't say this, but you guys need your own microphone. Please make sure to eliminate breathing into microphone sounds.

You are free to say your interpretation of the theme as long as it doesn't deviate too far.

1) "All fighters are destroyed, area is secure"
2) "Enemy fighters have arrived"
3) "I'm attacking your target"
4) "We're the backup and we've arrived to save your ass"
5) "Bravo Wing here, we've just arrived"
6) "There's a fighter on your six!"
7) "I'm dying!"
8) "Charlie Wing here, we've just arrived"
9) "I'm getting the hell out of here"
10) "I'm disabling your target" (going for engines)
11) "I'm disarming your target" (going for turrets)
12) "I'm breaking formation to engage enemy"
13) "Delta Wing here, we've just arrived"
14) "Echo Wing has arrived"
15) "I'm taking damage"
16) "I'm ignoring your target"
17) "I'm not following your order"
18) "I can't pick up your target on sensors"
19) "You just fired on me, man"
20) "Main player has been killed!"
21) "Main player just did something cool!"
22) "I'm out of missiles!"
23) "My fighter is heavily damaged"
24) "Main player is straying away from objective"
25) "Main player is traitor, off with his head!"
26) "I'm following your order"

The guys with the best "comm voices" gets the fighter pilot roles, but there is a strong chance that the people not selected for this role will be delegated for other roles as well, they are as equally important.

Please keep in mind: these are only guidelines. The lines are provided to give you an idea of what a character might say in a given situation. To give flavor to the voice acting each character should develop personalized versions of these lines. The critical thing is that the INTENT of the message remains the same. This is your opportunity to make the part you are playing your own. Be creative and have fun!

#Messages Examples

Just a clarification: Do you guys need female voices as well or is this an all-macho show? ;)

Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
I'm still here.

 
Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
44kHz mono, I'm assuming that's a wav file? 16 bit?

And speak with some inflection people! No offense, but Baws sounds like he's an easy chair.

Actually, the orginal Freespace didn't use the most inspired sounding voice talent either, but you have to blame the producer for that.

And here's a mic to look at. You can find crappy headset mics that cost more than this one. Get a stand and a pop filter and you're there.

I know many more techniques...

Hi, I am also interested :)

  
Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
Ah, what the hell. Even if I'm only a wee 16, everyone mistakes me for my 60-some dad on the phone. Might as well, y'know? =/

I apologize in advance if it sucks so bad, you attempt to pull an Oedipus on your ears.

*goes off to wonder exactly how to make himself sound older*

...oh, just curious. I noticed that WCS seemed rather PG, but some of your lines here seem rather PG-13. I'm assuming that we're not to drop the F-bomb at all (before you get a bad impression of me, no, I don't swear incessantly; I'm one of the few online teens who knows how to swear tactfully), but how lenient are you on this? Basic mid-level PG-13, I'm guessing?

Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
I'll be more than happy to audition, just as soon as I get over this cold I picked up today. :p

 
Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
I haven't tried before, but in case a give it a shot...

I'm from Greece and most likely I'll have a bit of an accent (no, not the usual greek to english one :P), can I still try?

edit: And another question, do we have to say these lines exactly as written, or can we give it some more colour?

You know, like in Wing Commander that each pilot had his own way of saying things. :)

Yes.

Btw, you could compress your files as well. (MP3, 128 kbs). And please put everything into one archive.

22) "I'm out of missiles!"


One question about that line: Wouldn't it be better if the pilots said something along the lines of "I'm Winchester missiles"?

Actually Wing Commander 3 and 4 were certificate 15 in the UK, which is above a 12 rating. And so would be considered an R rated movie had it actually been one in the states.  So I dont think it matters much. Though I dont think you should say "fuck", as there were only I think 1 instance in Wing Commander where I heard anyone say that.  :)

Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
Greetings.
I'd be pleased to help you this way. I'm a french amateur comedian who's been playing on scenes for 5 years now, and I've made another candidature for the BSG Beyond The Red Line mod (don't know if they've chosen me, though). Even if I'm not native english speaker, I think my accent isn't too bad...but be prepare to tiny original pronounciations. Anyway, let me know if it'd be ok.

Re: REQUEST: Voice acting!
Indeed, the international flavor adds to the futuristic feeling, the premise being that by that point we will have all learned to "just get along".

Hey, maybe we can get one of the characters to call you "Frenchie".
