Auditions - Results

Share/Save/Bookmark

To say that the turn out for Season 2 was better than Season 1 is an understatement. With 261 auditions, this number more than tripled AYVO's inaugural season. A big thanks goes in part to our BTVA community, for those spreading the word, and of course who can forget Mr. Kyle Hebert for kindly stepping in to not only sponsor the contest, but also guest judge one of the finalist rounds.

As Judges, it's been a pleasure to listen to each member's auditions. The challenge of course has been making the difficult decisions about who we thought made strong enough impacts with their voice acting to move on in the contest.

For those who did not make the cut, please do not be discouraged. Each of you has the voice acting foundation for which you can only improve. As the pro's would say, "Practice practice pratice". You can never stop learning how to act.
Also remember, this is not the end of the road for you in Act Your Voice Out.
Every non-Finalist who continues to participate in the contest will go in the running to WIN A PRIZE. More details below.

@Kiome Thanks so much! :D

If I'm right, it sounded like you were impressing the Powerpuff Girls and found that impression to be very, for a lack of a better word, Impressive haha xP

There's always time 'till next season to expand on your abilities, but you have a great potential. I did notice you were "quiet" in the sense like you didn't want to wake up your folks. While considerate for those who are sleeping, it's limiting. I solved the issue by using my backyard shed to record things. Find a space where you can let your voice run wild and where you're not afraid to do those silly yet awesome voices. :)

Congrats to the following members who made it to the top 16 and the callbacks! As for me, well I need to practice a bit more before I can move on. Un_n. Well what can I say, Practice makes perfect! Least I'm mentioned. (Haha!) :)!

That's a great attitude!!! : D
I also need practice! ^^ I listened to your audition! It was good! But it sounded like you were just reading something on the spot and sounded like your nose was alittle stuffy! ^^" You mic also peaked when you scream...I suggest standing back from your mic when you scream! C: Other than that great audition~

@ADream Really? You thought I was good? I'm surprised no one ever said that to me before! Thank you! You seem like a very nice person! & yes, it did kinda sounded like my nose was a bit stuffy and my voice peaked a little when I screamed. Un_n. but thank you very much! I'm glad you liked my audition! (and yeah, some people *especially my mom* say that I talk through my nose. Well, Whatever that Means. ^_^! also I have allergies. n_n) Thanks again!

HOLY CRAP! I don't believe it! I never thought I'd be considered a finalist so soon, if at all! This is a tremendous honor. Congrats to the callbacks and fellow finalist M0M0KI, along with the others to come!

And to those who didn't make it to call backs, I have known the feeling before, but I've learned: You never fail. You only learn. With time and dedication, anything is possible. :)

I wish you the best of luck in the future.

Well, heck. Can't say that I'm surprised. If nothing else, had to gut my demo at the last minute, since I didn't notice until I was about to submit it that it had to be under 60 seconds. Grrr! Not to mention, lots of good talent out there to go up against. Well, I'll keep working at it. Good luck, everyone who made the cut! :)
LM-G1
said at 8:54 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
Yes! Excellent! I was worried that I wouldn't make it into the callbacks because of how low-quality some of my recordings were in my audition. Thankfully, I won't have to deal with that buzzy whining in the background any longer. :D

Congratulations to all of the Callbacks and to everyone who auditioned for blowing away the previous mark for total auditions.

The decisions were not easy but as a contest we couldn't let everybody through. Hopefully you all understand the position we were in and realize that our job was not taken lightly but required hours and hours of thought and listening.

Really looking forward to hearing what you have to offer in both the behind the scenes contest, the callbacks and the eventual Top 16 performances!!

Good luck!!

I just realised that I only had 2 voices while many here have x3 of that :P
I think I need to increase "Vocal-bulary" til this behind the scene mini contest :)
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 8:14 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@Kyhlarn again i need to press that it's not the number of voices, but the acting behind the the number of voices you do give. sure, more voices give you more opportunities to show more emotions, but if you can give multiple emotions in one voice, backed with great acting, then you're a shoe-in.
Koichi_Saito
said at 7:24 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
Pleasantly surprised that I got picked, despite it being a ling time since I recorded my voice like this. XD

I'll give it my all in these call-backs, and best of luck to everyone! For those who didn't make it, keep improving and good luck in the future!

Though I didn't make it... I will continue to participate for fun in the non-finalist takes as well as follow along to see how this contest finishes! :D I hope others do as well! As for mine... I'm fairly certain I didn't vary my emotions/acting enough in my audition. I'm also certain that at least a two of my voices were just a little too much on the weak side. Anyway, remember folks that this is for fun, a learning experience and that it gives you a new goal to try harder in bringing your A-game to the table! ;)

Foxwolf (Admin)

@vernsmith49 a mix of impressions and original voices or just original voice is what I personally look for. Of course the acting needs to impress :)
vernsmith49
said at 10:31 PM on Wed Jun 6 2012
@Foxwolf I can do impressions, if you guys want those, but everybody does them and they have already been done. If there is a round coming up that needs impressions I will do a ton. If I go down, I hope it to be because of me doing me instead of getting cut trying to sound like a famous guy. I can sound just like my neighbor, Jim.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 10:42 PM on Wed Jun 6 2012
@vernsmith49 when you look at the 4 Callback Trials, it'll be up to you whether you do original and/or impersonations.

When it comes to the Finals (ie. the Top 16) we'll be asking for new interpretations of existing characters.

So everyone's had questions (and rightfully so) about what this whole "behind-the-scenes" part of the contest means for those who are not moving onto the Callbacks.

RozenStar
said at 5:24 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
Not surprisingly, I didn't make it. So... can someone please explain this "• You'll need to record 1 performance during each of the 5 Finalist Rounds." Are lines going to be assigned to us? Sorry for sounding so dumb but this was my first contest here.
Sarahcfgirl
said at 10:35 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@RozenStar This is what I assumed: You'll be recording the same lines the finalists are assigned. They'll be posted for everyone to see, I believe, finalists and non-finalists. You'll record those lines just like if you /were/ a finalist, and send them in.
This is what I got out of that. If I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll be corrected soon enough by an admin who knows what they're talking about ;)

Disappointing, but it is interesting to see how when I pay for a demo or a class I'm a big hit, and everyone loves what I do.... but when money isn't involved, I am given marginal treatment..... very interesting indeed.
OptimusSolo (Admin)

@MMBseven The fact that you didn't have to pay for this had nothing to do with our critiques and NO one was given 'marginal treatment' we treated everyone equally here.

@OptimusSolo I think MMBseven may be saying that when he gets praise for a class/demo, he may actually be "paying" for it, rather than it being truthful feedback. I may be wrong.

I didn't make it, but I'm listening to my recording and I still feel pretty proud of it so I guess that's a good sign. I'm a little confused by the chance to win a prize; it sounds like we're just doing the competition as if we got accepted, but it seems like a lot for the judges to consider with both the actual contest and those competing for the "pass" prize. If anyone could clear that up for me, I'd be thankful. Either way, I'll be back next time, though, and I'm taking drama this year at my school next year so I may pick up some acting tips before then. And to all the people who made it, congraturation! (+10 nerd points to those who get the reference) This site continues to impress me with it's community's acting skills and I seriously believe that many of you will be able to work out your own voice-over careers if you decide to get into the business. Good luck to all of you, and may this be a great competition!
Sarahcfgirl
said at 5:07 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@Beaux I'm pretty sure it's the same competition as the one the 16 finalists will be doing, except the judges wont be judging those contestants; only the finalists will be judged. Who wins the other one will solely depend on who gets the most /people/ votes, so the judges can't help you. I hope that makes sense.

At least, I think that's what will be going on.
Foxwolf (Admin)

@Sarahcfgirl you are indeed a clever one :) Most of that you hit right on the nail. The only difference is the winner is drawn randomly.

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I made it to the callbacks! >w< I was so afraid I wouldn't make it, but wow, it actually happened! xD

And hey, to those of you who didn't make it, don't be too hard on yourselves. I was in the same place last year, but I really took the judges critiques of my previous demo seriously and it's helped me alot. I suggest you guys ask for feedback too, you never know, next year could be YOUR year! :D Never give up, and good luck to my fellow competitors! ^^

I'm legitimately pleased to have made it to the Callbacks, but also nervous!! There's so much talent I didn't even anticipate! I gotta step my game up if I wanna stand a chance. :)

Sarahcfgirl
said at 5:12 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@BobcatXtreme No, you made it for callbacks! The yellow is a glitch. If you notice, it starts at your name, and highlights all after you, right? That's because it was supposed to highlight JUST your name, to make it easier for you to find it. But it glitched and highlights everything after your name, too.
Sarahcfgirl

@BobcatXtreme Oh wait, Foxwolf already cleared that up haha. Just wanted to make sure you knew that you made it to callbacks!
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 2:38 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
Sorry about the YELLOW issue guys. As some have stated, it was simply supposed to represent where you are in the entire list but there was a glitch and it made everyone else after you yellow. Apologies, it was 6.30am and I was on no sleep :P

@Foxwolf Thank you for clearing that up. I was a little worried there.

I'm afraid I know what the answer is but... my name is in yellow highlight but not in the "Pass" section but rather the Callback Section. Is that a formatting error? Did I not make the cut?

@Humanoid21 Now now, I wouldn't say that. Everyone in the "Callback" section or Top16 has some potential that the judges saw/heard. Although I must say my Sean Connery voice is better than TomStheVoice's xD Search for the voice clip from the movie, I'm a close voice match for Connery! lol
cardboardwalk
said at 3:19 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@evanASF27 More importantly they had range. Sure some of them felt like the stereotypical this and that voice but you can tell they know what they are doing. And its less how good is the impersonation ( though I am not in agreement to using impressions in reals ) and more what they can bring to the game.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 4:11 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@Humanoid21 Those who made it as finalists instantly, we all agreed to be outstanding. The fact that we were only in complete agreement on 2 is probably testament to how high our standards were as a whole (and how our opinions tend to differ). And those whom we called back were those who had enough potential to make it past being immediately disqualified, but we needed to hear a little more of before making a final judgement. Overall, I'd say we were very strict and fair in our decisions. I think you're being critical just out of frustration rather than listening to them objectively.

And if I may offer some constructive criticism, you didn't pass because your recording equipment was not very good, so we had absolutely no idea what you were saying. Sorry about that. Use this as a chance to learn from your mistakes. Don't take your frustration out on others.

Congrats to everyone who made it to the callbacks! If you didn't, don't sweat it. Practice makes perfect! If voice acting is something you really want to get into, work hard and never give up on it!

I have to say; SteveP, LordCrehavos, and sydsnap I LOVED your auditions! Awesome job =P

I'm kinda glad I didn't pass. Disappointed, but lighthearted in a way... I was such a nervous wreck, I don't think I could do another round lol! oh well, at least I get to practice more until the next audition, so I don't mind ^__^
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 2:43 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@AnnieMae88 I was the same when I first started out. At a workshop I was told that I had some good acting but if I was able to get over my nerves, the acting would come out better and more naturally.
So I'm sure it'll be the same with you. Just keep at it. And hopefully we'll see in you the "behind the scenes" part of the contest :)

Congrats to those who got a callback, and even more so to the two finalists. For those who didn't make it, don't be discouraged! If you asked for feedback, take that and use it to improve! Hopefully a lot of those who didn't make it will still compete for that prize!

Also, I will say one thing... Chrisiscool86 does a great Shaggy voice. lol!

Tara St. Michel
said at 12:59 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@the musical monkey The yellow is supposed to show where you are on the list. There's a glitch tho and it also highlights everyone after you. It basically means nothing but "Here you are on this list and this is everyone who's name is listed after yours" XDD
animefangel
said at 12:23 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
Callback? Whoohoo! But yellow, does that mean just barely? Guess I gotta work hard. Kinda bummed my friend didn't make it though.

Also I have a question. How does behind-the-scenes work? I just want to make sure, in case I don't make it. I'd still like to follow along and improve myself.

No, yellow means only that you can find your name easily, so that doesn't mean you made it barely ^^

Congrats to those that made it and got call backs! To those that didn't make it chear up! Voice actors don't just send one thing out and then get rejected. They send multiple things get multiple rejections but they will get accepted by at least one person! Again congrats to those that made it!
MegaMac

Wow. I can sure tell it was a tough process for the judges. That's a lot of people in both the callbacks and passes. Only two in the top 16? Congrats! Time for the callbacks to see what they can do. ;)
Davey3valves

Congrats everyone who made it.

Kinda bummed I didn't make it, but that was to be expected. My mic quality wasn't the best, and I probably should have had an actual script instead of trying to make stuff up on the fly. Of course I probably could have re-done some of those recordings, and maybe kill the last one. Oh well, I am my own worst critic after all.

Once again, congrats to everyone who made it. I look forward to seeing the results.

THE YELLOW HIGHLIGHTING

OK now that I caught your attention, if you see a large block of yellow highlighting, we're pretty sure it's the website trying to make it easier to find your name. However, due to an error, it starts with your name and highlights everyone behind you as well. Essentially it means nothing.

Congrats to those who moved on, and for those of us who didn't, let's keep practicing, get better, and have some fun with the behind-the-scenes contest!

@I_am_onlive I can tell ya. Well the mic quality was weird... It has a lot of reverb. Plus it seems like there was a lack of enunciating on some of your words.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:57 AM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@I_am_onlive If you haven't already, you can request feedback in the forums. Right now though, I'll say that imitations alone wouldn't have gotten anybody into the finals. You'd need a variety of voices that sound distinct AND high-quality acting.
I_am_onlive
said at 12:09 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@NCZ Oh Yeah like how many exactly? I know the mic was sorta bad.
Sarahcfgirl
said at 12:26 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@I_am_onlive It's not the amount of voices that get you in. You could even just do one voice (although I'd recommend at least a few), as long as your /acting/ makes an impact on the judges.

@Sarahcfgirl You know what Sarah I think you are right. These guys don't really understand that it is not the quantity that matters in voice overs it's the quality that does. Apparently it seems that they have change their opinion about me the last time I had auditioned and are now writing something else.

They don't realise it but I have got a hundred voices with various pitches in my throat and dialects as well. If they gave me another chance I will show them how vast I can be. I am serious when I say this.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:55 AM on Fri Jun 8 2012
@I_am_onlive We do understand that quality is better than quantity. The thing is that the quality of your audition was not very good.

You say you have a hundred voices but throughout your entire minute you only showed three. Talk all you want, but you're going to need to back up these claims. If you're truly capable of all those voices, you should've included them in the audition.

We get you're upset that you didn't make it, but all these claims aren't going to change anything.

@Cydonia Yellow I think actually means that they were in consideration for the Pass part not the actual callbacks. So the ones in callbacks are almost in jeopardy of not being there but there was an ounce of something to make them want more of that individual.
hentercenter

@SCP21 I think @Cydonia was right because I'm the first highlighted from my view, but when I log out There's no highlights at all.

@SCP21 I'm not sure about that. Everyone I've spoken to who has gotten into the callbacks have said that the yellow always starts on their name.

Ah, didn't make it. Oh well, it was my first try, I didn't want to get my hopes up too high. Thanks again for the opportunity, BtVA. Can't wait to read the feedback.

Out of curiosity, how exactly do non-finalists still participate? Do we just do the same challenges as the finalists when they are posted? Also, what does it mean if your name is highlighted in yellow on this list?
Foxwolf (Admin)
