Lord of the Rings Voice Compares

Round 1 - Theme: Street Fighter

Share/Save/Bookmark


All members of BTVA are welcome to submit a performance for voice acting practice or just for fun! See below for details.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!
Welcome to Round 1, Finalists. To get your feet wet in these finals, we're going to look to the recently rejuvenated Street Fighter franchise. Best known as a popular fighting video game, voice acting isn't really the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks of Street Fighter. These fighters aren't just about punches, kicks and fireballs. They have character and personality. Each has their strengths and powers, but also struggles and weaknesses. Which such depths, these fighters deserve some voice acting performances to match.

Finalists. Your mission is to select one character below and perform the dialogue provided. There are character descriptions for each fighter to give you an idea on who you should be embodying in your voice acting. As always, the believability of your acting is what will be judged. But don't forget to pick a voice that suits the character as well as conveys the emotion that you interpret from the dialogue.

Oh, and you guys know how Kyle Hebert will be a Special Guest Judge for one of the rounds? Well, guess what? He'll be a guest judge on this round!!! And how fitting given Kyle has been the voice of Ryu in the most recent Street Fighter titles.
Kyle will be giving individual feedback for each of the Finalists' performances.

Good luck!

17 Finalists will submit performances.
8 Finalists with the most votes will move onto Round 2.
3 Finalists from the remaining group will be selected by the Judges' to move on.
1 Finalist will be selected by our Special Guest Judge to move on.
5 Finalists will be eliminated.

Ryu

(Explains the purpose of his headband)
Line 1:
"Whenever I tie this on. I always ask my body a question. Am I worthy of this fight?"


(Concerned that the dark Hadou will overpower him)
Line 2:
"Kill me. If ... if I'm possessed by the dark Hadou, and can't break free. Ken, I want you to be the one to do it."


(His best friend Ken has been brain-washed and is attacking him)
Line 3:
"Take a good long look at me damn it! Come on! This is a real fight! Tell me who I am!"


(Feels a huge pain in his body from the growth of the Hadou power within him)
Line 4: (Choice)
"I don't think I've felt anything like this before. It's like raw energy growing in the center of my stomach and any second it's going to burst."


Line 5: (Choice)
"Didn't you say you should fight if you were strong? *pause* Well, I'm not strong. That's why I fight. I fight myself. Against myself."

Ryu is best described as a wandering warrior. He is a quiet, serious and humble man, and a kind heart. He travels the globe and is in constant training, to master his own fighting style, Hadou. But in his drive to better himself, there is a darkness in Ryu, culminating from the dark side of his Hadou. He constantly fights to supress it, for if it overcomes him, he will do whatever it takes to win and be the best, no matter the cost.
Dhalsim

Line 1:
"The power I possess is divine. It is not for mortal men to use for their own selfish desires."


(Explains to his new guests his reasoning for believing they always try to solve problems with violence)
Line 2:
"THIS is why I call the two of you beasts. Your violence will only bring harm to the villagers behind you."


(Has paralyzed one attacker of his village and explains his technique as he paralyzes another)
Line 3:
"He hears but he cannot obey, because I have stopped the flow of Chi in his body. A most effective attack. Taste now the terror of total paralysis."


Line 4: (Choice)
"Hear me, Agni, God of Fire. Watch over me as I in turn watch over those I love. Grant me the strength to vanquish evil."


Line 5: (Choice)
"You are the type who when you see your prize attack and think nothing beyond your opponent's defeat. For this reason I call your methods bestial."

Dhalsim is a wise and powerful mystic, who has mastered the art of Yoga and can also manipulate fire with his breath. Dhalsim is generally a pacifist, and while he fought in a tournament to raise money for his village, he will normally only fight to protect those around him.
Chun-Li

Line 1:
"Considering S.I.N.'s connections to Shadaloo, there's a good chance I could find some clues about my father."


Line 2:
"These children ... they're innocent! How could you?! Your acts are unforgivable, Bison."


(Looks at a photo of her deceased father)
Line 3:
"Please keep an eye on me, father. I promise I'll put an end to their evil plans. I'll make sure no one else ever has to go through what I did."


Line 4: (Choice)
"You can't conduct an investigation by yourself. You're putting personal revenge in front of common sense and duty to your country."


(Has retired from Interpol)
Line 5: (Choice)
"I enjoy the freedom. The peace. All that fighting. Those days seem like a dream to me now. When I open my eyes, the images disappear. All those memories."

Chun-Li is an undercover Interpol agent, trained in martial arts and has a great sense of duty. Her father was killed by the head of the criminal organization of Shadaloo, M. Bison. So Chun-Li fights to avenge the death of her father, take down Shadaloo and bring Bison to justice, after which she would like to live and simple and normal life.
Rose

Line 1:
"I seek only to protect this world. What happens to me is of little consequence."


(Knowing that she shares her soul with the evil M. Bison, Rose talks to herself about her power)
Line 2:
"Soul Power is the one weapon you cannot control. It is your weakness. And it will be your undoing."


(Speaks to the good and kind Ryu about the choice he will soon have to make)
Line 3:
"You will soon meet someone who will shape your destiny. And through that meeting, you will change. Will you grasp the light? Or be swallowed by darkness?"


(Rose reads the fortune of who can defeat the evil M. Bison)
Line 4: (Choice)
"No matter how many times I read the future, the answer is always the same. Only the fool card can stand up to him ... the card of reckless heroism."


Line 5: (Choice)
"I may be able to stop him temporarily, but i simply cannot destroy him. For I hold the same power in me that Bison does."

Rose is a mystic fortune teller who possesses a unique ability known as Soul Power. In her quest to destroy M. Bison, an international criminal (who possesses corrupt Soul Power) who killed Rose's master and slaughtered her village, she discovered that her and Bison shared the same soul. Rose fights to defeat Bison and the evil power within him.

You obviously were one of our strongest Auditions but something about your recording quality really distracted me here. Not sure if its the equipment, the volume levels, how close you are to the mic or what.

NCZ

While your voice fit the character, some lines were a bit underdone. Line 2, for example, picked up at the end. I can see where this is coming from, as Chun Li is pretty reserved, but it’s something to watch for. You have potential, so keep at it.

Line 2 managed to sound both uneasy and confident, so props there. While the first line sounded a little too narrator-like, the rest was great. Keep it up!

The accent was a bit much for me here, it distracted me from the overall performance. Also, I think a bit of the 'power' of the character was lost with it.

Agrees (6)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

The accent was kinda cool but a bit exaggerated; detracted a little from performance. I'd recommend that you try and focus more on the acting than the accent. Great amount of energy, though a bit youthful for an aged character like Dhalsim.

Your deep voice fit Ryu well, and each line sounded believable. Lines 2 and 3 were the strongest, capturing the emotional nuances. One suggestion is for a shorter pause between "it's going to burst" and the last grunt in line 4. Otherwise, excellent job!

Really liked your accent; sounded believable and didn’t take anything away. Line 4 deviated a bit from the voice you’d created over the past few lines, so that could’ve used some improvement. You did a good job overall, so don’t be discouraged.

The voice really fit the character, and I loved the choking up at the end of line 2, as though he was reluctant to say it. Each line sounded believable, save for somewhat-awkward shouting in the third line. That’s about all that needed improvement.

I had you in the middle of the pack for Dhalsim only because to me your accent was a bit inconsistent. At times you sounded like the witch doctor from Monkey Island (she's female). Also didn't care for the trill you used on the 'H' in the 4th line.

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

The accent was a little shaky at the end of line 1, but it was well-done and consistent during the other lines. You did a great job at sounding wise, but still injecting some variation in delivery and tone.

Agrees (2)  Disagrees (3)
NCZ

I liked the more subtle anger at the beginning of line 2, and that it transitioned to being more aggressive at the end. The voice sounded a little young/soft at times but otherwise wasn’t a bad fit for Chun Li. Lines were delivered well overall.

Agrees (4)  Disagrees (3)
NCZ

Liked your accent, sage-like voice, and a decent bit of variation in delivery. One thing I think could be improved is removing the pauses during certain lines (such as “give me strength to vanquish… evil”). I felt the strongest lines you did were 2 and 3.

NCZ

Overall, I felt that while your voice sounded a little too young for Ryu, your acting wasn’t too shabby, especially the third line. The second line could've used a bit more emotion. Pretty decent overall.

First line began narratoresque, picked up at "am I worthy of this fight?" I liked line 2’s transition from reluctancy to assertiveness. Line 4 was believable, though sounded like a different voice at times. Essentially, just work on staying consistent.

Line 2 is mainly what held you back. It didn’t have enough anger or frustration to sound believable. The other lines were done well enough; just inject a bit more emotion or energy into your performance.

I couldn’t see the voice fitting Ryu that well, but the last three lines had good acting. Line 1 was a tad awkward, mainly the pause in “Am I worthy… of this fight?” Stick to characters that match your voice, polish your delivery a bit and you’ll be fine.

Agrees (5)  Disagrees (1)
NCZ

Your voice is a great fit for Chun-Li and you delivered most of the lines well, particularly line 2. However, I felt line 3 transitioned to a whispery tone a bit too soon, so it kind of dragged on. Otherwise, good job!

OK I'll say it, even though Mr. Bipolar chose the wrong accent, pitch and personality for Dhalsim's character, I agree with Mr. Hybert, his performance with that Jamaican accent was indeed spot on and I loved it. I would also love to do a duet with Mr. Bipolar someday and with my own Jamaican accent as well.

My feedback is now in. I'm going to agree with Optimus and say that the strongest for each character were LM-G1, TomSTheVoice, and Mizura. If you have any questions or need anything clarified, please don't be afraid to ask me.

By the way, I thought the variety of accents we got for Dhalsim were pretty interesting. He's Indian, just for the record.

All of my feedback for the Finalists has been posted. I have to say that overall this was a REALLY solid group of performances. I could find something to like in just about every one of them. I DO think the Dhalsim voices overall suffered a bit from the accents people chose to use. This has been discussed by others but mainly the accent really needs to fit the character and be consistent throughout which at times wasn't here. My top picks for each character were Mizura, LM-G1, and TomStheVoice
TomStheVoice
said at 11:46 AM on Sat Jun 30 2012
@OptimusSolo Thanks, man! Glad to hear you liked it. :)

This competition is ferocious. The talent is fantastic, including LM-G1 for his Dhalsim which I felt was among the best ones of him.

@OptimusSolo - It would be nice if the VO actors had just a little bit more info on the characters. This might help aid them in proving the nice little extras (such as accents for example)... as they deliver their voice acting of the character. Though, I do also understand that it's each VO actor's responibility to research the character thoroughly on their own before hitting the recording booth. :)
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 1:57 PM on Sat Jun 30 2012
@Hendercrazy Are you talking about expanding on the 'Character Descriptions' that we already provide for each character?
Foxwolf (Admin)

@Hendercrazy actually as I mentioned below, accents were deliberately left out so that Finalists could give their own interpretation and give their own spin on the character (just like I said in the movies/shows/games, sometimes the Street Fighter characers have accents, sometimes they don't).

We hope that the character descriptions we provide give enough information on the personality and traits of a character. We don't expect finalists to have to research on their own.

Personally I loved how we got variations of Dhalsim's accent. Jamaican, African, Indian, British, and mixed accents.

@Foxwolf The attempts at variations on the accents was cool but the execution and delivery suffered most of the time for it.

@OptimusSolo agreed. AMT made a similar comment which I also concurred with.

but yes, my comment above was mainly for the cool factor. just great to hear brand new interpretations of a character I know reasonably well.

@Foxwolf & OptimusSolo - I was just meaning that if you guys are wanting something in particular. Otherwise, I like that it's an open field like you have it right now where folks can come up with their own fresh version! That's what I'd loved about MrBipolar's rendition. :D

ok can someone explain y all the girls did Chun-li? .-.
MOM0KI
said at 10:54 PM on Wed Jun 27 2012
@RandomEncounter The reason I think is because her character has an accent, which if you aren't comfortable with, characters with accents can be super hard. Plus her voice is lower, a lot of the females in this contest seem to have a higher range. Rose also has very little emotion in these lines it seems, there just isn't enough depth to the lines. That's just me though x.x
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 12:43 AM on Thu Jun 28 2012
@MOM0KI so I imagine people are most familiar with the Street Fighter 4 versions of these characters but some other versions of both Rose AND Dhalsim don't have accents, which is why I deliberately left out which countries they were from in the character descriptions - to leave interpretation to the finalist who picks them.

This is just an fyi :)

@FoxyLee13 @Momoki i did roze and chun-li at home for fun i to have a low voice but i found roze more challenging to do bcz of her accent and she has emotion in her lines its how you bring it to life that makes the character idk maybe it just bcz im a tomboy but who knows
MegaMac
said at 8:14 PM on Wed Jun 27 2012
I'm really diggin' SteveP, LM-G1 and TuxedoTaargus with Dhalsim. As for Ryu, Seymour and TomSthevoice do great work. Odd that no one played Rose, but Chun-Li is all that so...lol. Bree does a great job with her as well as RitsukaFlame. Now, I do believe in overacting and it could make the lines seem superficial at times. Of course, without a proper script it can be tricky to select a way to deliver them. As it stands...oh, I can't choose! They all have qualities about them. Hmm...
VocalChameleon
said at 8:10 PM on Wed Jun 27 2012
Okay, I've narrowed it down:

For Dhalsim: LM-G1. He has a pretty decent voice that just seems to be natural for the character, especially with the lines chosen. I could hear a slight British accent, and a few of the syllables were off/slurred, but I still thought it was better than the other Dhalsims (I can't stand the African accents most, if not the rest, gave him).

For Ryu: Seymour. This was a tough one, but the "Take a good long look at me, dammit!" line was my deciding factor. Everyone else sounded off (too light, too gruff, too awkward). While I'm not sure the pained strain on the voice was necessary, it was convincing, as I believed the pain Ryu was showing through his voice.

However, my voice goes to my choice for Chun-Li: Mizura. For me, the voice fit in every aspect. She made the character believable and conveyed the right emotions to make the lines work. Way to go, girl.

Everyone did a good job, really making it tough to cast my first vote here. Keep it up for the next round!

Crap, I accidentely voted for Mrbipolar, no offense to you as you did a good job, everyone did. I was however going to vote on either Momoki or Mizura, since they were the best at Chun-Li. While Mrbipolar had a pretty good delivery, I feel Riverk gave the best Dhalsim. As for Ryu, LordCrehavos blew me away. Again, no offense to eveyone else.

I specially liked Mizura's take on Chun-Li, when I first heard her clips it clicked as to how I think the character should sound with great delivery on her part.

I was surprised at how many guys tried out for Dhalsim? Was it because of our special guest judge? Hehe... still the few Ryu were pretty awesome and made me appreciate the character (I've never liked Street Fighter).

Let me lead off by saying that I had never known that there was such a great community here at BTVA and it is really great to see the contestants pursuing their passion with this level of enthusiasm, the community supporting those participating, and the overall initiative taken by every person here who helps to make events like this possible whether it be a viewer, contestant, fan, etc.

As for this round, I voted for MOM0KI this round. Knowing about Chun Li’s character with her history behind Shadaloo and entering Interpol, I love the delivery of these lines. Each line was given in a direct manner with a level of controlled emotion that I found portrayed the disciplined martial artist very well. Line four even added that dynamic contrast against line two which show that range in personality that Chun Li has. Very strong performance, would love to hear this on better recording equipment.

I also want to toss in an honorable mention for TomSTheVoice. The Ryu voice fits and the delivery gives that clear, defined tone that matches up to the character. Especially line one seemed to hit this 'character match' right out of the park. Main wish is that I would have liked to hear line three more as if Ryu was in combat though since Ken is attacking him at the moment.

I gotta tip a hat to those who decided to try Dhalsim, I'm really liking all those submissions best I think! Most variation I guess? :] Anyway, everyone sounds great!
VocAwe
said at 6:16 PM on Sun Jun 24 2012
I voted for Mizura for this round. I felt that out of all the Chun-Li's, she gave a bit more of a mature tonality to her voice and I felt that fits Chun-Li very well. I loved her deliveries on her lines, especially line 3. It was very subtle, but I could hear her voice waver a bit and I really dig that. I thought it added to the emotion of it pretty well. (And I'm a lover for the "subtle" acting)

I listened to everyone's performances and her's stood out the most to me, so yeah. That is, not to say everyone else did poorly. Everyone gave it their all and performed very well. It's just little things here and there, that I looked for, that factored in.

I will say that LM-G1, your vocal quality is pretty damn good. I can definitely hear your voice in a game.. but more like a villain.. maybe it's just 'cause how you delivered the lines, I felt more of an intimidating undertone throughout. It was neat though, haha.

Gotta give it to LordCrehavos this round. I felt he brought the most personality to his performance, had the most fitting voice for his character, and had the most variety in terms of how his lines were delivered.

Every single person who did Dhalsim attempted an accent of sorts, and none of them were very consistent. This is a pet peeve of mine; accents are tricky, and I typically think people should avoid attempting them unless that can commit to them with 100% confidence and accuracy. As soon as you mispronounce a single word, the audience's perception of the character is shattered, and we become aware that this a performer, not a real character.

As for Chun Li, I felt Mizura was the strongest. I was really torn between voting for her and LordCrehavos. Mizura, if you had sounded a teeny bit older, you would have gotten my vote without question.

This first round was one heck of a doozy. Everyone put in a great amount of effort, and I can't wait to hear more. I needs it!

Nice, Momoki. You sound just like Laura Bailey. And the acting was pretty good.

I noticed a lot of the dhalsim people tried too hard on getting a distinct voice for him, whether it be super deep and gravelly, or a thick accent, and it kind held some of you back with the lines.

If you use an accent, be sure you can use that accent without sounding to much like your putting it on, otherwise everything you say will sound like you reading it exactly off a script.

From what I've heard, LM-G1 is my favorite Dhalsim. His voice is just what I'd expect from his kind of character.

With everyone else, I heard an African accent and that just throws me off. From what I've gathered, the guy is Indian, seeing as how he's a master of Yoga and prays to a Hindu deity.

Still need to decide who my favorite Ryu and Chun-Li are, then I'll narrow down my choice among those three. Everyone did a good job here. Keep it up!

All of these performances are great! Will the judges' feedback show up as they're done, or will all of them show up at once?

Also, looks like Bree's character says Ryu when she's really doing Chun-Li. Might want to fix that, haha!

@Foxwolf I'm having the same problem, too. I'm clicking on the performance, but all that's there to click is the three sound files (Which reminds me, wasn't there supposed to be four per person?) and the option to view their bio. There's no vote button whatsoever.

Man, this was tough! Both types of characters are ones I'm not used to portraying, but it was fun. I wish the options were Ryu/Dan instead of Ryu/Dhalsim though, haha!
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:55 PM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@Octopimp Dan? Hmm, he'd have a lot of good comedy potential, but that wasn't the focus of this round. We wanted to use this round as a test of serious/dramatic acting chops. Now, if this was a more light-hearted round, Dan would be our first choice.

I'm a little overdue for this, but I want to say one thing about my audition. I never played Street fighter for the life of me. I just went with my gut based on the description of the character, who I percepted as... well, a young batman. This may or may not be accurate, just saying what I got out of it.

To all the BTSers and members, I can not wait to see your performances either, I thoroughly enjoyed the callback performances and can't wait to hear more from all of you. You are all truly very talented and, as such, should be very proud of yourselves!

Dear mods. I hate to be that guy that complains but I want to point out a little flaw that could be a problem with your voting system. I am not going to dangle around I'll just go right into the chase. There's a high chance that these votes will not be based on a actors performance but more on popularity. Example. Seymour for instance could win this contest with no problem if you do the mod vote and outside member or whoever vote because out of everyone he has lots of fans (Youtube status) and do you really think it would be fair for the others if one member wins because you allow his fans to vote for him? What type of contest would this be if you guys did that? Is this a "win by popularity contest" or is this where we up and new comers get to test our abilities and voice our heart out.

If this is a vote by popularity then why bother getting us to participate in this contest. you should just say "Here you go Seymour since you have a butt load of fanboys and girls you win" Knowing that he is unable to out preform anybody because quite honestly he isn't a good actor. Yeah he's a great dub actor because there's no skill behind it but an actor, nah not even close. But, if someone like him does win it won't be because he's good, it'll be because of his fan base voting for him and that is something that need to change if you mods want a somewhat fair contest.
luciouscbt
said at 5:38 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt I don't have a grudge with anybody nor am I mad that I didn't make it. Hell I even said I wasn't going to make it because of my poor performance. All that I'm asking is for you guys, mods to look at the potential problem that could happen. People vote could turn into a popularity vote and we all know that it will not be fair to the other actors that are participating in this contest.
RozenStar
said at 10:30 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt I admit, I do recognize some of these VA but that's because I liked their voice acting. They earned their spot as far as I'm concerned. I admire them because they are able to do things that I can't [not referring to making silly voices or impersonations]. At some point, they were new too just like some people in the voice over industry. You work hard to get to where you are and over time you reap the rewards. Not everyone blindly votes without accurately evaluating the contestants (fans or not). Also, the 16 finalist can't participate on the following contest if I'm not mistaken. Have some more faith on the voters. You might be surprised ^^
RozenStar
said at 10:33 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt ah, and as for Seymour, he didn't make it last year. He auditioned just like the rest of us.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 10:41 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt The funniest thing is that we have received the same type of message regarding MULTIPLE people in the contest which clearly points out that it is a more level playing field then you think.

Also, this is pretty much like any reality contest you see on TV these days which ALL incorporate fan voting at some stage of the competition. Not to mention the fact that this is an interactive site for voice over fans so it would make no sense for us not to include a fan vote as a part of the process. We had no problems with Season 1 and I don't foresee any problems with this year.

No one has an unfair advantage here, sorry if you think that way.

Also, none of the mods of this site have anything to do with the contest. Myself, Fox and NCZ are all administrators here just for the record ;)
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 10:43 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt Also, whether you personally like a finalist or not please refrain from making derogatory comments towards any of them. We are a positive community for voice over fans and aspiring artists and we would like to keep it that way. Seymour earned his spot in the final 16 and your opinion is just that, an opinion.
AWIG
said at 10:52 AM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@OptimusSolo can I just add that off course people are going to have fans. If luciouscbt or any other had made it in. They would have a lot of supporters as well... however you also have a lot of new people like myself that have never heard any of the top 16 before. :)
luciouscbt
said at 12:04 PM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@OptimusSolo Normally I just let things fly but this became a concern because of several comments outside this site stating "Let's band together and vote for our guy because we're fans and we want our guy to win." I see that as a problem. Think of this for a moment if that was the case could you imagine if you had MasakoX advanced and you had the people power voting going on. Knowing that guy he has a larger fan base than pretty much all of us combined, being with teamfourstar and all. It wouldn't be fair. Again it could be a popularity contest than any other, just don't ignore it.

As for Seymour it's quite obvious that I dislike the fellow because of somethings that were exchanged sometime ago. Solo you should reeeeeeally check facebook and see what's is being said in ones corner. I mean it would be rather impossible to ignore "Let's make sure our guy wins. Vote for him." just saying.
OptimusSolo (Admin)
said at 12:51 PM on Sat Jun 23 2012
@luciouscbt Sorry man but there is nothing wrong with people having fans/fan bases and them rallying the troops to vote for them. Every contestant can contact as many people as they want to get them to vote, that's not against the rules. I am sorry man but now it really sounds as if you are trying to campaign against someone simply because you have a grudge against them or because you have had issues with them in the past. Let the past stay in the past and lets try to keep this positive. This discussion ends here. You have voiced your opinion now let it rest from here on out as far as the voting issue is concerned.

@MOM0KI Finished my lines today too! But I'm still listening to them, wondering if they can be better.

I'm sure you'll do great! :D

Also, please remember this is NOT about who can best impersonate or mimic a previous voiced version of these characters. Its all about capturing the personality and traits of the character and bringing it to life. ACTING and believability are the main focus here!

To make it as clear as possible finalists, you are expected to record the first three lines and then a choice of the remaining two lines. So, four lines total :) Good luck!!

@OptimusSolo it's okay, the Finalists see magical things (instructions) that are invisible to the rest of us :)
