Re: Appeal for voice actors
Alright.....

I am looking for a replacement for GEEZER, the maniac-like character of EACW.

Please send me a PM or email ( [email protected] ) if you are interested in doing this part !
He is supposed to have a slight lunatic touch...

Thx.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
But the character is only LIKE Maniac. So anywhere the files actually have him mention his pilot handle are out and can't be used. Better to make (relatively) original dialog.

Delighted to assist if there's still a need for voice actors... upper/middle-class English accent here, but I can be flexible!

Well, I do have my nice 50 dollar dynamic mic now, and a pop guard to take care of those annoying P, T and other explosive consonant sounds. Maybe I can do something.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
At the moment we have a few mission designers who want to add voice acting to their missions and campaigns. Voice makes a huge difference to a mission. Making it easier to play (you can concentrate on fighting instead of reading messages) and more immersive. There are a lot of interesting parts available ranging from major characters to one or two line bit parts. You don't need to have had any experience. All the voice actors who featured in Raider Wars were first timers. It really is very easy. All you need is a quiet room, a microphone, and a few minutes spare time.

If you would like to volunteer to help mission designers add voice acting to TBP campaigns please post a message in this thread. You do not need to post your real email address. Mission designers can contact you via personal mail here on HLP. Thank you.

I should be able to do a wide range of voice acting for your mod - I am far too lazy to read this forum again but I am online most of the day:

Re: Appeal for voice actors
I just uploaded my part in madaboutgame's Earth-Brakiri War. It was my first experience with voice acting and I was a bit shy of my mic, at first, and I felt a little intimidated :nervous: but I ended up having a lot of fun with it.

Murphy's Law was in full force for my foray into this new role. I really feel sorry for having put Shaun through the frustration of waiting so long but I ran into matters beyond my control.  :warp:

Hopefully, I'll get better as I go along. That is, assuming anyone is willing to offer me future roles.

I can do characterizations but my natural speaking voice is a deep bass with a Texan drawl.

I'm up for whatever anyone is willing to send my way. Me and my cheap mic are ready!  :D

You are the One!...No, the Other One!

Re: Appeal for voice actors
LOL. Yep, R. Lee Ermy is my hero. He rocked in "Full Metal Jacket", but he was god-like in "Space: Above And Beyond"!  :nod:

I like Michael Ironside, but Gunny would have been awesome in "Starship Troopers" as the D.I.

Ask and ye shall recieve, Col. Dekker...

...where do I upload this recording of me trying to do my best drill-instructor voice, for all to enjoy ?  ;7

Re: Appeal for voice actors
my voice-actor for the Operations-campaigns isn't responding anymore. I need somebody who is able to do a few pages of briefings and ingame orders in the role of Command in a few days if possible, so the campaign makes it in time for the DVD.

Volunteers, please post or send PM and tell me where to find a sample of your voice.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
Heya Vidmaster, I have a summer holiday going on and I'm completely free for your use so if you wish, I could record those briefings and ingame orders for you.

I'm sure you have heard my voice before on several projects before but if you wish some separate samples, just let me know.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
I currently not looking for voice actors, nor is any other TBP fredder (except maybe Skullar?). I always start contacting all people who posted in this thread when I am in need of actors again.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
well now you have one in reserve!, if you need a male voice actor just ask (if one has been dropped, removed, shot or otherwise inconveniently dropped off in the middle of a desert highway with nothing to drink but Brusseled spout juice :rolleyes:)
