--- THE RESULTS ARE IN! ---

What Do I Need To Audition?

A Microphone  ...   Recording Software and  ...   Your Voice!!

How Do The Auditions Work?

1. Record a few lines of dialogue that showcase your best voice acting ability. *
    (a demonstration or selection of the voices, emotions, or characters you are capable of)
2. Submit your audition using the form below. **
3. After the Auditions have closed, the Judges will review all submissions.
4. Standout auditions will move automatically into the Top 16 Finalist spots.
5. Remaining spots will be determined after the Callbacks.
    (auditions of members who score high enough will advance to the Callbacks)

* Your audition must adhere to the Official Rules.
   Recommended recording software: Audacity or Adobe Soundbooth
** Auditions will be screened and must be approved to be eligible for Finalist contention.


What Should I Include In My Audition?

Think of your audition as a "demo reel". Show off your ability not only to do multiple characters and voices but also show us multiple emotions as well. Although imitating voices can be a valuable asset, it is more important for you to remember the ACTING part of Voice Acting! Whether you use 4 or 10 voices, we are looking for those that are most believable and natural in their presentation.

To get a better idea of what makes a good audition, take a moment to listen to the auditions of our Top 8 Finalists from Season 1.
Auditions are now closed.
Thank you and good luck to everyone who auditioned.

I know I'm probably late to the game but is there going to be a season 3, and did I miss auditions for it?

said at 2:10 AM on Mon May 6 2013
@JenniferCFarr Season 3 is yet to start so you haven't missed it. The thing is we don't have an exact for it yet. When it does start, all members will be sent an email.

please don't hate us, but we're going to have to extend your torturous pain in waiting for the results, but only for a few hours.

due to some frustrating and uncontrollable circumstances, we've lost some time in prepping everything that's needed to announce the results and the Callbacks section.

hang tight guys.

said at 7:53 AM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@OptimusSolo as is my wait to get some sleep! :P it's 5am and I am currently flagging the results for each of the auditions that will advance to the Callbacks.

As I'm doing this with one eye open and one eye asleep, I'm wary of the fact that I might get multiple paper cuts as I pull nearly 100 member's names out of this virtual envelope :P
Dogman15
said at 2:19 PM on Tue Jun 5 2012
@Foxwolf Oh good! That means about half of us had decent enough auditions to warrant a second try! In that case, I'm confident that I'm among those callbacks.

@Foxwolf My feedback will come in gradually over the course of the first two weeks of the contest. No way I could have all that ready for Tuesday with all the judging thats been going on the past few days :)
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 11:28 PM on Mon Jun 4 2012
@OptimusSolo no worries dude. from what I saw you seemed on top of it and were way ahead of me :P though I'm trying to knock my feedback out tonight.

said at 3:43 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
So happy to see my audition went through! I was so afraid I wouldn't have been able to even participate since I was bed ridden most of this week. But thankfully I submitted it in time. I put alot of thought into the advice the judges gave me last year and changed up my "demo" quite a bit for season two. I'm really proud of it, as cheesy as that may be. ^^"

And oh my gosh, I can't wait to hear everyone's auditions when they go public! We're all nervous I'm sure, but we're a voice acting family, and I'm personally cheering all of you on. xD

Good luck everyone!

I come back out of curiosity, and find 261 people to have auditioned. Wow, now I'm really interested what this will lead to.
KayZircon82
said at 2:25 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
Just wanted to add that as someone from Season 1, this turn out tripled last seasons! I kinda envy those judges who get to listen to 261 inspiring voice actors, however I don't envy them narrowing it down to just the 16 and the callbacks. That's gonna be a tough job, but if anything I hope everyone had fun because this was more fun than last years for me personally, and can't wait to hear most (if not all!) the auditions on Tuesday! :D Oh and best of luck to everyone! ;)
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 2:54 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@KayZircon82 sure it's a contest and there's winner blah blah, but the main thing I care about is that our members have fun :)
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 3:45 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@Foxwolf You can 'blah blah' it if you want to but to me there is nothing 'blah blah' about this. Many of these people are aspiring voice actors and take this rather serious as another step in their development and as such I take this very seriously. It is a competition after all first and foremost. The main thing for me is finding the best of the best here. Having fun doing it is just a side bonus! :)
TamaRanEd
said at 3:49 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@OptimusSolo To me this is a dual mix of a competition and a test. I've been in a slow spell in my VAing and I want to know how I measure up and what I need to improve, the challenge of this contest could be it for me, but on the side I'm having so much fun too ^_^
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 4:22 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@OptimusSolo I was by no means undermining the contest with my comment. I simply meant there's more to AYVO than just being a contest to find the best. As I've stated in all my previous comments, the point of AYVO and BTVA in general is for aspiring voice actors to grow and improve as voice actors whilst hopefully having a load of fun while they're doing it.

Out of curiosity-- how many auditions were approved for the contest? Please and thankies! ^_^

@SheilaMGagne According to above the list, 261 people ^^;; A lot in short XDD
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 3:45 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@TamaRanEd This is correct we had 261 auditions although 4-5 of them did not meet our guidelines and have a limited window to re-submit.
SheilaMGagne

@OptimusSolo That's fantastic! Thank you so much (I kept on getting dizzy from trying to count the approved submissions).
SheilaMGagne

@TamaRanEd Yeah, I realized they had the number listed just after I sent this and felt so embarrassed. I tried counting them one by one. :P
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 4:46 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@SheilaMGagne not to worry, I think that's what most people were doing before :P given there were so many auditions, we should've just listed the number earlier :)

How the heck are you gonna narrow it down to just 16 contestants!?
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 1:18 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@Metazoa Maybe you missed it but we have a second round of auditions called "Call Backs" that will help us narrow it down :)
TamaRanEd
said at 9:13 AM on Sun Jun 3 2012
And now the nerves until Tuesday begin to show signs of life XD

Good luck to everyone and good luck ot the judges, goes without saying I wouldn't want to trade positions with such a task. Can't wait to see if I and a few people I know make it, if this already the end for me I've had fun and I'll be sure to participate in the behind-the-scenes friendly entries and Season 3

Best of luck y'all!!

Apologies but after carefully re-listening to your auditions we must ask you to resubmit them as they do not meet our guidelines. Don't worry, we'll be sending you an email Sunday morning outlining the reasons we cannot accept them and you will have until the end of Sunday to email us an updated audition. Thanks.
Stingervoice (AYVO S1 Runner-Up)
said at 3:35 AM on Sun Jun 3 2012
I can't say that I envy the judges with all the talent that decided to audition! :]

I'm super excited to hear all of the auditions. I can't believe how big the turnout was compared to last year.

Remember that even if you don't make it to the top 16, don't be discouraged. There is always next season! As long as you had fun and you take something away from this experience, it was totally worth while.

I'll be watching the contest and I want to wish everyone the best of luck!

Good luck to you too, judges.

God Bless,

I'm bummed I wasn't able to compete this time. I REALLY wanted to, and I attempted to audition, but I am confident that anything I send in would NOT be the best of my ability. I want to give this competition my all, but I realized, while recording for a recent fandub, combined with the audition, that now is simply not the time for this sort of thing for me. I won't say I'm a perfectionist, but I feel that it would benefit me more if I auditioned at a better time with more experience. I'm still learning, and I just know I would get creamed out there!

However, I am still VERY exited for this competition, since I know out of the 250+ auditions, we will have many, many fantastic voice actors to set the bar high on the competition, and I am thrilled to see it happen. Good luck everyone! :)
NCZ (Admin)
said at 2:20 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@PurpleWarrior13 Well, our feedback would've at least been a nice start even if you didn't make it far. It is your choice, though, and it's always good to know what we're capable of. If you didn't feel confident in your skills, then skipping this one might've been for the best.
PurpleWarrior13
said at 7:15 PM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@NCZ That's true. I do plan on uploading a longer demo to my YouTube channel, and participating in several "VoiceThis" segments. I think I would find that type of feedback very useful for this competition. I'll try to participate next time, and take advantage of the extra preparation time, and see what voices would work best for the audition.

Can't wait 'til Tuesday to listen to the other auditions. I'm not sure if I'll even make it into the running, but it's probably too early to think like that. All the same, I like getting in the practice. Thanks for the opportunity, BtVA.

Yep, gotta love the Chrono games. Great series.

@NCZ Out of curiosity, I wasn't aware of the contest until the day before the deadline so I couldn't have asked for any feedback (and I only just saw the forum thread). Once the admins finish screening auditions, would I be able to still to request a critique of my submission?
NCZ (Admin)

@jmhilde Same here. I was freaking out because it was 11:30pm and started going through a lot of problems trying to submit my audition. It wasn't until 11:45pm when I finally got it to submit (at June 3 for some reason). Reading the comments below, it was said that the time here is EST. Good 'cause I had enough of a scare for tonight c:

Had to mine last minute and didn't realize it was limited to 1 minute. Mine runs 1:40 and I didn't have time to re-do it. I've been ill and I was thinking it was supposed to be around 1:30 tops. It will either be ok or it won't I guess. Thanks for allowing me to submit it to you regardless. Greg Phelps

I really hope the amount of voices doesnt kick me out of the final 16. I only did 4 >.>
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 1:21 AM on Sun Jun 3 2012
@AMT as we've emphasized a number of times, it doesn't matter how many voices you do, it's the quality of acting you do with that voice or voices. If you can give an Oscar worthy (or in this case a BTVA worthy) performance with just one voice, that could put you way up in the top spots.

Over 250 auditions versus last years 78? What gives? Ah, I know. It's Kyle Hebert in all his masculine glory. He is the MAN! lol. I wonder how many auditions are forces to be reckoned with. This is rather unnerving. Good luck, everyone! To the judges especially. =P

@MegaMac - The great part is... there were already a lot of submissions in before the announcement of Kyle Hebert's involvement and prize! :D No matter what happens with this group... I hope everyone still continues to participate in the rounds! It's be AWESOME if we could keep participation at a high level! :D

Wow! We have just broke the 250 mark for Auditions for this season with a matter of hours before the deadline passes.

A couple notes for all of you:

Nothing is going to be revealed to you guys at the deadline tonight. It would be impossible for us to have finished deciding who gets invited for callbacks etc right at the close of auditions.

Callbacks will be announced Tuesday and Auditions will be made public for people to listen to at that time.

Until then myself and the other judges have the pleasure of listening repeatedly to all 250+ auditions until we each have come to our own conclusions on who should be given callbacks (in other words don't be envious of us)

As I isolate myself in my own person 'judging corner' for the rest of the night, I would just like to wish the best of luck to everyone and don't forget, if you aren't selected for Callbacks you should in no way be discouraged, you can always come back stronger and try again in Season 3!!

Again, GOOD LUCK!!

@OptimusSolo Hi! xD So, I'm not very good with time zones, but when I submitted my audition it was before midnight my time, but it said it was June 3rd already on the site.. is the timezone on the site different from the actual deadline timezone for the competition? ^^" (Just want to be sure.. xD)
Foxwolf (Admin)

@YukariKanashii88 unfortunately the timezone of the site's hosting is EST, but the time we deal with is PST. Sorry for the confusion. Something we may have to adjust soon to avoid mixups.

I just finished looking through the entire process of Season 1 challenges, and I have a question for the admins: Will the challenges of season 2 be the same/similar to the past challenges? (our take on one char, our take on two, two separate takes on the same char, "a conversation with yourself", etc etc?)

Or will there be comlpetely different challenges, entirely?
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 11:49 PM on Fri Jun 1 2012
@Sarahcfgirl pretty much yes. those are the main foundations of each round but the actual voice acting challenges that we'll ask for will differ.

@Foxwolf I never got a message that it was waiting approval, but my name is on the 'approved auditions list'.. I assume that means it was approved, after all, and I just didn't get the message for some reason?

So many people on here! I figured that since its seems you hear alot of the same voices on different cartoons and stuff that the voice acting community wouldn't be very large. With so many voice acting hopefuls out there Hollywood should stop spending all that money on screen actors for voice overs and try throwing one of these many up and comers a bone. Heres to wishful thinking :)
bcbspike
said at 9:29 AM on Fri Jun 1 2012
I feel like an idiot. I spent all this time making a 30min skit thinking creativity and humor would earn me some points but when I went to submit it and saw the 1min limit and how last years finalists did theirs I had to make a new one. Needless to say I was mad but if any one wants to hear the original I'm thinking of putting it on youtube. Let me know if youre interested cause I wont bother if nobody cares but its a pretty funny skit if I do say so myself.

I hate to ask this, but is audio quality going to affect the outcome of the auditions? I don't have a legit microphone and I'm pretty much doing it out of the built-in computer mic, and it sounds like it. It's not terrible quality or anything, but it sounds like I don't have a great mic. I do plan on eventually getting an actual mic, but I've got a nagging feeling that the quality could come back and bite me in the butt. Is it going to affect the outcome at all???
NCZ (Admin)

@Davey3valves Yeah, I'd recommend a better mic.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 12:24 AM on Fri Jun 1 2012
@NCZ well, as long as we can hear it and the quality doesn't overcome the performance, you're okay at least for auditions.

however, keep in mind that if you (or anyone for that matter) makes it through to the Top 16, recording quality might affect the way people vote for you.

@DravenRoth994 I've been using an AT2020 USB mic for a while and it's really good. It's about $100 though. If you're just looking for a starter mic, I got pretty far using a $7 logitech mic from Walmart. You just need to know how to play with your settings :)

MegaMac
said at 2:56 AM on Fri Jun 1 2012
@DravenRoth994 Another one you could try is the Samson C01U Condenser mic. On eBay you may be able to win one rather affordable. Or maybe the C03U for other dynamic settings, but they're more expensive of course. The AT2020 is also a standard. Could also try a couple mics by Blue; the Yeti and Snowball.

I have recorded my audition 3 times and every time I save it to MP3 format it distorts the sound (it makes it echo)

Would you guys accept a WAV file?

I don't think I will stand a chance with the way the MP3 sounds. :(
SCP21
said at 10:34 AM on Thu May 31 2012
@Cybergemini What are you using to export too mp3? I think the F.A.Q. states what they take. I would try exporting as .wav and re-import and re-export as mp3. That may fix it. Also would try Audacity a free recorder.
Foxwolf (Admin)

@Cybergemini If that doesn't work, I always save it as wav, and then use the Zamzar website to convert it to mp3, and it gets emailed to me for download. For a file that is less than a minute, it shouldn't take long at all, and it's free.

Kyle Hebert... is judging? I was nervous enough just trying out, but reading that gave me a heart attack ._.

Anyways, question: Can our lines be a little... gory? One of my lines: "... until I'm laughing at your pathetic corpse, drowned in a puddle of your own blood! I will have your head!" I know it has to be family friendly, but I don't know if that counts, considering that it's verbal and not visual. Or is that too dark?

@Anon Kyle is only providing feedback for one of the finalist rounds. Something the finalists can take away to improve themselves.

As for your line, yeah, if you can avoid it, I would. It's a tad dark. Wouldn't want kids to listen to it and get nightmares :P

Does removal of background noises count as an alteration? My friend at the dramapod Tim Heffernan went through the trouble of doing so when I asked him to critique a copy of my audition reel, and I just wanted to know if using the one with the background noises cleared out is fine, since the voices themselves were not touched.
Lapianoman (AYVO S1 Quarter-Finalist)
said at 2:47 PM on Wed May 30 2012
@Der Grapist You should be fine. Removing background noises & editing to take out loud breaths or stray mouth noises is always a good idea. I can't imagine there being an issue with Normalization or Compression either. By mentioning "alterations", I think they meant contestants are not allowed to artificially speed up/slow down, or change pitch electronically to make yourself sound older or younger.

Well Stingervoice, we reached 100 & then some! I think AYVO may have double the auditions this season. If I counted correctly, we only need 10 more submissions to reach 156...entirely possible since it's still a few days until the deadline.

@awsmith2006 If a coach is too much for you in which they will be just sign up for acting classes and vocal singing lessons at your local college. The pretty much teach the same thing but for less, but one teach actual technique.

Foxwolf (Admin)

@awsmith2006 nervous is good. it means you'll only get better and gain more confidence as you grow as a voice actor.

and not sure if you've seen my other comments, but every person who auditions (and doesn't move on) can still participate in the contest in a non-competitive way. we set it up that way so members can continue practicing their voice acting.

I am so nervous.
I hope they (figuratively) rub salt on my voice-acting wounds.
Salt irritates.
But it also heals.
And through that, I can become better at my craft...which is good, as this is my only talent at all.
Do I expect to make it to the next round? Of course not. But I do need experts' opinions, and given how many pro VAs have talked about this site, I trust that Foxwolf's feedback will be as constructive (and as painful) as it needs to be.
I don't mean to come off as some egomaniac...or as sarcastic. I'm utterly serious.
Good luck to everyone...may the best actor win.

@Trackball Hopefully it doesn't have to be *quite* so painful for you, but I like the fact that you're willing to learn from any feedback you get. With the exception of obvious trolls, view criticism as a tool to highlight what you need to work on most. Above all, don't forget to have fun!

@luciouscbt even as an amateur contest, the range of talent will vary. as long as people aren't a "Professional Voice Actor or have substantial professional/paid experience" (text above), then it's all good.

@JayGirl10 while it IS indeed a contest, the main point of it is for fun, esp since this season we're setting it up so that all those who don't make it into the Top 16 can still participate in the contest in a non-competitive manner.

Each round non-finalists will be able to submit a line for a character and there will be a public poll so the community can vote for each other. This is all in fun and a way to continue practicing ones voice acting.

We're also looking to possibly have a randomly drawn prize for those non-finalists who participate in all 5 rounds.

@SSJRyoku sure, go ahead. and while we're pretty easy on this, I want people to remember we're asking for you to audition with your BEST voice acting.

If you don't feel it's your best work, don't submit it yet. You still have a few days.

I'd suggest listening to it over the course of a couple of days to make sure you're happy with it. That way you can make any necessary changes.

Hey guys. So this is my bad for naming it a "voice acting session". But I want everyone to be clear the prize that Kyle Hebert is donating is NOT a recording session.
It's an online one-on-one voice acting consultation via Skype. I apologize if anyone thought it was something else.

@LordCrehavos since Kyle is sponsoring the contest, his consultation will replace the 100 dollar prize. the rules have been updated accordingly. we're sorting out so a couple of things so that the value of the winner prize will still be 100 US dollars.

I have a question. I just listened to the people that did last season and I am just curious is this whole contest just imitating character and the read? Because If that's the case I'm screwed lol I have a Mel Blanc philosophy of not doing much imitations. I thought these were one of those contest where you are handed a script and are judged if you can bring that script to life or something.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 5:19 PM on Sat May 26 2012
@luciouscbt Not at all. As we've stated it's about the ACTING. You're right, it's about bringing a script to life. If it sounds believable. If it's something you could hear on a show/movie etc.

I personally would put someone who let's say does a semi-okay Mickey Mouse impression but has awesome acting over a person who has a spot-on impression but so-so acting.
luciouscbt
said at 5:29 PM on Sat May 26 2012
@Foxwolf Awesome! That's what I like to hear. Though I am self taught I worked more towards the acting, being that character than anything else. I thought this was more imitating I was about to pull out. Thanks for the info
Der Grapist
said at 8:04 PM on Sun May 27 2012
@Foxwolf Crud, I thought it was more of a variety thing, which is why I combined both emotional acting and impressions, yet was worried about the emotional things being close to my own voice, and not a character voice.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 9:58 PM on Sun May 27 2012
@Der Grapist well to better yourself as a voice actor, I'd say that's the next mountain for you to climb. mixing character voices AND emotions.

let me take a quote straight from Kyle Hebert's website.
"Impressions are just imitations... not acting. If you have a demo littered with Family Guy, etc, you will NOT get work."
Der Grapist
said at 11:30 PM on Sun May 27 2012
@Foxwolf Yeah, I kinda thought that impressions were required on this, since most everyone seems to have done them. Though, five out of seven are not impressions, even though one of them kinda sounds like an aging Vegeta, now that I think about it.
Foxwolf (Admin)

@RiverK Kyle will actually only be giving feedback for one of the five Finalists rounds. As for your Ryu line, I'm sure if he listened to it he'd be honored :)

@Foxwolf I was fortunate enough to be emailing him before season one actually. I emailed him and told him about the Star Wars round and he was really excited to see it. I try to catch up with him about every month or so. Truly one of the nicest people I know. He's just a really great guy in general. I am very lucky to be his friend.

@Foxwolf I was wondering why people said that they found out about this through his twitter. Anyways thats awesome news! How did you come about this with him? I know that you said you wanted to do something like this in the last AYVO so it could have been in plan for a while.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 10:46 PM on Thu May 24 2012
@cardboardwalk yeah, Kyle announced this earlier today but I didn't get a chance to update our banners until now.

basically we contacted him in a way that we could both help each other out and that was that. he's a great person and is excited to be part of AYVO, just as much as we are to have him.

said at 9:01 PM on Thu May 24 2012
Hmm...if only it wasn't just about character voices.

Maybe next year it can be mixed up! They could have commercial recordings one round, the next they could have something for an E-Learning project, and then they can have something for Telephone prompt, and even something like where two charaters have a conversation with one another and the voice actor needs to create two different voices!

Dang, that sounds awesome! :) But just a suggestion! ;)
Tyler James Thompson
said at 9:54 PM on Thu May 24 2012
@Stephy Laurens Good suggestion! :) But its ACT your voice out. Voice Acting and Voice Over are two different things.
Stephy Laurens
said at 10:18 PM on Thu May 24 2012
@Tyler James Thompson
Hmmm.. very true. But I thought maybe that one contest could be like that since it focuses on the MANY genres of voice over! But I see what ya mean! ;)
Stingervoice (AYVO S1 Runner-Up)
said at 10:27 PM on Thu May 24 2012
@Tyler James Thompson Doing commercials, narration, and E-learning all require good acting. Characters just tend to have more emotion. Good acting is part of the business in every facet. I think characters do offer a pretty good acting spin but I think a really well acted commercial is what sells the product.

Good points all around though. :]

@shleepers things are going great too. In fact, we have a few surprises in AYVO this season that I can't wait to share!

Also, this year BTVA will expand in the voice acting area. More interactive voice acting features for everyone to practice and grow in their acting. So hopefully you'll be more of a regular when that happens :)

And if BTVA ever slows down (doubt it lol), maybe I'll have some time myself to work on my own voice acting.

Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 9:48 PM on Wed May 23 2012
@LordCrehavos yeah, that's the part I hate most about the contest! not being able to let everyone through.

however, I will share right now that when the finals start, it won't be the end for everyone else. the plan is to let all non-finalists participate in the Rounds in a behind-the-scenes kind of way. on a separate section, they'll be able to submit lines for each round, and the community can vote for who they think did the best.

this way everyone can still participate in the contest for fun and hone their voice acting skills. we're still working on the exact details though and will make an official announcement soon.
LordCrehavos
said at 9:52 PM on Wed May 23 2012
@Foxwolf Even though not being able to let everyone through, I bet it's quite the honor to pick out the truly talented among the contestants!

Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 10:00 PM on Wed May 23 2012
@LordCrehavos well, as Stingervoice said, as long as you tried your best. but if you think you could've done better, you can certainly resubmit if you want. let me know what you decide.

And yes, it's an honor and joy to listen to everyone's auditions. I've listened to each audition at least 3-4 times now :P
LordCrehavos

I didn't realize there were so many contests out there and Ijust keep finding them. I just finished entering this other music contest I found called MakeAStar -- super excited about that one since they actually award cash prizes to winners every month. Not to sure about the whole process, but it looks super easy to enter since all you do is register to the MakeAStar site, upload a video, and let people know so they can vote for you.

A big thanks to everyone who's auditioned so far. It's been a joy to listen to all your auditions. The worst part is that only 16 of you can go to the finals.

For everyone else, let's just say we have something special planned ... ;)

@Foxwolf So great to be back. I wanted to use my Frank Welker's Dr. Claw voice but my throat was bad. You would've been really surprised to hear how convincing it would've sounded. If you thought Pgirts's Joker voice was great, just wait till you hear mine.

@DarkGirl1 Regardless of what people think you just have to believe in yourself and that you did your best. Worst thing that could happen is not to get picked. But it is a learning experience and fun so that's the best part. Gotta start somewhere. :D - So Good luck!
Foxwolf (Admin)

@DarkGirl1 after the first few times (at least for me) you just realize it's fun to record and do voices and forget about nerves. the thing to forward to? you can only get better from here on in :)

about your audition. we haven't received it yet. make sure you see a green message on this page telling you its awaiting moderation. let me know if you have any questions.

@DarkGirl1 Hey, as long as you gave your best, no one can critisize. And hey, if not the first time, then try a second. And then a third. Practice makes perfect. Same here, it's my first time. But I'll hope for the best for both of us! :)

I also had a few more voices I wanted to show of but since it has to be one MB I had to cut some of them out.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 8:39 PM on Sun May 20 2012
@Ringworm128 just saw your audition and it's nearly 2 mins long. the max limit we allow is 1 min. if you wouldn't mind editing your audition, you can go ahead and submit it again. as for the word "penis", it all depends on context but you're better off not using it.
Ringworm128
said at 9:19 PM on Sun May 20 2012
@Foxwolf I shall redo my audition tomorrow. I just have to decide what voices I want to keep.
Ringworm128
said at 8:17 PM on Sun May 20 2012
Audition didn't turn out exactly how I wanted I felt like I should have put a bit more depth in. I'm also hoping the word "penis" isn't considered THAT rude.
CatsTuxedo (Moderator)
said at 8:35 PM on Sun May 20 2012
@Ringworm128 I doubt the name of a male reproductive organ would be considered rude. Its various slang terms, on the other hand, would probably be a different story.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 8:59 PM on Sun May 20 2012
@Ringworm128 I'm going to echo Fox's comment above. The exact amount of rudeness depends on context, but I'd recommend avoiding it altogether because it's still not really family-friendly no matter what context.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 2:58 AM on Mon May 21 2012
@NCZ I agree, the rules clearly state that auditions need to be family friendly [as they do that it needs to be under a minute ;)] so yea, I would avoid it altogether

I guess there's no way to PM on this site. Well, either way. Technically I'm a professional voice actor, and have quite a bit of paying work under my belt. So....sorry about that, you can go ahead and take my audition out. I didn't see that rule/note until just now. good luck to everyone though :)
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 6:42 PM on Sun May 20 2012
@Chrisiscool86 no need to apologize. while it was briefly mentioned on the AYVO main page, we only just updated this page to mention it.

we only added it as we've had a couple of questions about it so wanted to make it clear for everyone.

you can actually PM via the forums

Great turn-out so far this season guys! We are already half way to the total number of auditions from Season 1!!

We definitely will have our work cut out for us narrowing down the Finalists.

If you need something to tide you over for the two weeks until auditions close, can I suggest you check out our Voice This! section. A lot of users have fun honing their skills as they submit fun and entertaining clips for our images.

said at 10:53 PM on Sat May 19 2012
I just submitted my audition and I already feel like I could have done better... It was pretty shaky and I don't think there was enough variety in the voices I used and my editing (putting the individual clips together) is very sloppy as well. And when I tell myself that I did my best, I remember how outstanding the auditions were from last year! Still, best of luck to everyone and may the best voice-actor win!
Foxwolf (Admin)

@Foxwolf Oh, I might do that. I'll get to work on a better take and I'll write back if I think that I would like to resubmit it...
Beaux
said at 5:14 PM on Mon May 21 2012
@Foxwolf Yeah, delete my first take. My brother agrees that my current one is an improvement. I'm gonna try to actual sound like Spike Spencer with my Shinji clip this time rather than just reading the lines in a whiny version of my voice... (I'll let you know how that turns out) After that I should be done. (I removed a couple clips and rerecorded parts so far so I'm almost done)

@Foxwolf Sorry it took so long, but I came up with a cold and my voice was messed up. I have overcome this cold and have uploaded the real final draft. (I decided to just shorten my Shinji clip rather than bother to do a better impersonation, plus I made a lot of other additions/subtractions. This new one I feel pretty good about)

Since SCP21 is participating this season & I have all this free time now, let me know if you need another judge!

@Lapianoman

We actually already have a 3rd judge for this season, but keen observation on your part and thanks for the offer!

Oh jeez! I just finished up my audition & was getting ready to send it off, only to read that the top 8 from Season 1 aren't eligible! I gotta learn to read the fine print... :P

@Lapianoman You will be able to audition again in Season 3 though sir so not all is lost! Maybe you can just save your audition until then :)

Would 1:20 be too long? Or could that slide?

I'm actually going to go ahead and send the audition in, and if it's not approved then I have a shortened version of it :)

@Chrisiscool86 - The official rules are on the facts page. It says it must be less then a minute long, under 2MB file size and be in MP3 format. :)

@Hendercrazy Yeah, I was just going to see if they would make an exception. But the file that's over the limit is over 2 MB anyway, so I went ahead and sent it in. Good luck to you :)

Thanks Foxwolf! :) Just wanted to get it uploaded so I wouldn't keep contemplating whether to change it or not. o_O I very well may have jinxed myself in the process. :P Nevertheless... it's outta my hands now. Very much looking forward to hearing everyone's audition and enjoying all of the rounds no matter how it all goes down! :D
