Require several voice actors for a project
Hello folks,

I'm currently in the process of working (beginning to..) on a new project for Descent 3. I know that it isn't a Freespace project, but this is the only place I know that provides useful information regarding voice acting - and the Descent modding scene is very small by comparison, so it's difficult to find voice actors over there. And I know that the two games have shared a common fanbase over the years, as many people tend to crossover from each game. I have various needs for each part, some of which are vital to the story and others which are just tiny parts with a handful of lines. Here is some information on the places that need to be filled.

Large / Significant Parts

Commander Lee - This part has the most lines, featured in every mission and briefing. For this part I need a male actor who is either middleaged or can pull off a convincing middle-aged voice. Should be quite a defined, deep voice. Commander Lee is the main good guy who commands an Orion class carrier. Yes, the Orion is homage to Freespace, despite being a different design.

General Lucia - This is a very specific part and one of the villains. For this particular role, I need a womans voice who sounds like she may have come from a posh city. British accent is a preference. Not a big part but requires a good voice.

Fighter 1 - While no name is mentioned, this is a large part for most missions. Looking for a male voice actor to play this veteran pilot role.

Fighter 2 - Should be female (if possible) to play the part of this relatively young, inexperienced pilot.

Smaller Parts

Deimos Carrier - Commander of a carrier, should be male in the middleaged range. Appears in two missions.

Victory Destroyer - Commander of a powerful destroyer. Appears in two missions.

Merchant - Looking for a good British/Australian cocky accent for this civilian merchant character.

Captain Drake - Male cruiser captain.

Captain Braka - Small part for a cruiser captain.

Bomber Pilot - A veteran voice, male.

Assault Cruiser - Male or Female for this unnamed part.

Escort Cruiser - Very small part.

Station Commander - Simple one line part.

Computer Voice - Again, a one line part.

Nibiru Carrier - Small part for a carrier commander role. Male.

Centaur Carrier - Similar with the above. Male or Female.

Scout - Very small and simple part.

EDIT: Note that not all parts are listed, some 1-3 line parts are also available but I usually double up the small parts to a 'medium' sized part for those.

If you have voice talents that you'd be willing to lend, please contact me at [email protected] - Please leave some details about what characters you would be interested to play, and some samples of your previous works is a must. Samples should be unedited with no sound effects or alterations. Keep in mind I may pick a different role for you based on how your voice sounds. Thanks!

If you have any questions, just post them here.

Hey

I'll take whatever you'd recommend (if you think my samples are worthy in the first place)

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Well I suppose there is: http://www.descentbb.com/viewtopic.php?t=4113

But technically you have to take the intiative.

And yes, I've looked. I will get back to you.
