Description:
Need Voice Actors to portray the main characters in an audio book version of my upcoming novel. This novel's genre is a combination of sci-fi and 1930's jazz era focusing on the gritty reality of the world and how nothing ever changes. Auditions must have a decent microphone and be clear. I will be honest this is my first project.

My aim is to have the first chapter completed and distribute it locally, i have a local company (Fierce) interested in showcasing some work, making it a good opportunity for a voice actor to get their name out as everyone will be credited accordingly. If the first chapter is a success then i will use the same voice actors i cast for this chapter for the others, and will be offering payed work.

Thankyou for your Auditions.

*Update*

I've decided to push back the deadline for auditions because i will be combining two chapters in order to show a lot of content upfront, this means that there will be new characters to audition for, and some of the current characters will have bigger roles.

@Manunkind i really liked both your auditions, with SIZ there was some background noise that can be distracting, i would like you to re-audition for SIZ because i liked the pace you did with the line but i'd like the accent to be a little more 'bug like' i know that sounds obscure but i need a direct contrast between Ta'kar and SIZ
Manunkind
said at 2:57 PM on Mon Aug 22 2016
@JackWalker thank you for that! I'd be happy to submit another audition for Siz. I have an idea of what you're looking for. Background noise will be eliminated. I'm waiting for a windscreen that I ordered, so it's still a bit raw.
JackWalker

@Manunkind I've deleted your audition so hopefully you can re audition
Manunkind
said at 7:08 PM on Mon Aug 22 2016
@JackWalker just submitted take 2. Went for something a little more bug like, let me know if it went in the right direction. The windscreen will make a big difference in noise, but I tried to make it a little clearer. I'm using audacity with a Blue Yeti mic; other settings can be changed to your liking. Thank you so much for the opportunity to try again.

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
