Re: The Blue Planet: War In Heaven Part 1 Voice Acting Call - "Minor" roles
To be part of such an amazing universe would be an honour. I'm going to audition for some parts (probably Ensign Camerone, as I figured out that I sound a little young).

EDIT: If I want to send in multiple auditions, should I send them all in one email or as separate emails?

EDIT 2: Camerone has been declared female in the OP. I definitely don't fit that category. :D

[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

Send them all together if possible, just keep in mind the total attachment size limit that I mentioned in my OP.  As long as the filenames are correct, I will be able to figure out where they go.

Thought I'd take a stab at Prathanya. My voice probably isn't suited to him/her after reviewing the files, but oh well. Let me know if they're bad and I can try my hand at some other roles.

(Also, the files are not of the greatest quality because I'm using the mic mounted in my laptop's lid, and am sitting in my bedroom)

Just got audacity. i'll try out GTCv Arethusa. If you guys like that I might put a couple of others in. I have a pretty manly voice for 17  :lol:  :cool:

Batutta raised a question in the other WiH voice acting thread.
Most, if not all, lines say 'male or female', as if either was fine. But what if the .ani is female and the submitted line is done by a male in a male voice? Which takes priority?

If the lines are good we could in some cases adjust character gender, but not all; some minor characters have their gender explicitly stated.

That needs to get cleared up.

A better pronunciation guide might be nice too. Many of the character names have unclear/ambiguous pronunciation.

If you are having trouble with a name, please post in the thread or contact me, so we can get it sorted out.


OP Change log:
  • Fixed a variety of formatting and spelling issues.
  • Added more detail to stage direction for the minor parts.
  • Shifted "Major Prathanya" because of post length reasons.
  • Fixed previously mentioned Male/Female tag for "Shuduhune Alpha 1" (unfortunately I haven't done the rest yet).

EDIT: Male, Mail, whats the difference, they are both words :P

Are we to expect feedback before Sept 30? Because at least for me, I can't do any more lines past like, next week.

Is it possible there are some lines missiong for mission one.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think I remember one of the Cruisers throwing some pretty pissed off comments at me about it being my fault that thousands of civilians died, when I lost a transport on my first playthrough.

I'm pretty sure that was the Ironhide (which is already on the list), but correct me if I'm wrong.

I've told some friends on Facebook about this in case they're interested in this kind of thing. Personally I don't think I'd make a very good voice actor. Certainly in nothing serious, anyway :P

What the hell, submitted. :nervous:

Fale alert.
Just checked to be sure and it's the Suffron, not the Ironhide.
And that ship is in the upper section of the first post, with the major roles...

If you meant to type 'Fail alert' there, you, well, failed. :p But I stand corrected.

Role list updated: I have fixed the listed sexes of the parts, as per Battuta.

No, unfortunately.  You will only hear from us before Sept 30th if there are technical issues with your performance or administrative problems (like you forgot to tell us how you want to be credited).

The only recommendation that I can give you (and anyone else) right now would be to do as many of the one and two-liners as you are comfortable with (if you have a lot of spare time, you could do the three liners as well).  We would find that very helpful.

As of right now, I have 5 auditions that are sitting in my inbox that I will process tonight when I am back from work.

Hmm.

How to pronounce "Fabian Kurniadi". Very much thank you for assist. I'm thinking FAY-bee-ehn ker-NYAH-dee.

(Also, I'll attempt and submit Scorpio 1 if nobody minds)
