Description:
My name is Me is a philosophical adventure novel exploring the effect society has on personal identity. The project is set in a future where war is looming, the government is hiding its operations, and nobody really knows or cares about either of those things. Even the fact that the basics for human sustenance are poised to disappear escapes the attention of a society desensitised to the problems of the world.

The story will be released in chapters, more or less, with each being somewhere between 15-20 minutes long. It will be separated into multiple acts, which upon completion will be combined and released. When all the acts are finished, they will be combined and released as the full story.

A new casting call to cover new characters will not be released until the full length of that chapter is complete. This script is already finished and will be ready for production the moment I receive all the lines.

As always, Good clean microphone and a quiet place is the main criteria. You could be the best voice actor in the world, but if I have to try and eliminate a ceiling fan from your audition it will ruin your line anyway.

Also any time you see me specify a voice type, don't get discouraged. Try anyway. My recommendations are flexible, even in gender. I am not beyond redesigning a few character aspects to suit a talented voice actor.

Some Clarification on the first character of the project. He refers to himself as "Me". He is known as "Six-Five", but the same voice actor for him will also play an additional character named "Three-Five."

"Me" a.k.a. Six-Five/Three-Five



NO
IMAGE
Name: "Me" a.k.a. Six-Five/Three-Five
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Me is the center of our story. He made his name himself and it was his idea. He is nineteen years old, though he would never know it. The voice I am looking for here is in the mid-high range. He is ignorant, innocent, but 100% sure that he is always right. This is a very small part in this particular casting call, but he will have MANY lines in the future.

"(As though giving a list) "Steak. Potato. Carrot.""

Line 3:
"(Confused but defensive) "It's my name. What do -you- say when you refer to yourself? I don't think it's that strange.""

NO

Marx



NO
IMAGE

Marx is a large and burly type. He is a grizzled sort of veteran. Any smokers would be appreciated here, but really just a seasoned and tough sort of voice will work perfectly for him. He is Mao's closest friend and muscle when needed.

Thank you to all of those who auditioned. I will review each audition again and choose the cast accordingly within the week. Thanks again and don't get discouraged if you don't land a part. This will be a long project and I will keep all of your alluditions on hand in case I think you fit a part later.

@MrPhoxSillanpaa The Rcast has been chosen. The first chapter's script will be sent out to the chosen actors along with any notes I might have for the delivery of the lines. I recommend each actor provide at least two interpretations of a line. Otherwise We may have to skype call and do some real time directing (And I am super anxious about such things.) If your contact info is not in your profile, please reply to the comment here to help me find it otherwise.

@somuchpanash I enjoyed your audtions. I like that you went for both male and female characters. Your recording volume is a little low for future reference, but not really an issue. For "Me", The pitch is just about right, but the annunciation is a little sassy. I loved your Mao. Your attitude is pretty on point and I think your voice a good match for her. As for Dr. Andrews, he is a slight exception to the gender bender rule. We need him to be patriarchal and such. But I loved that you went for it anyway. Your delivery was pretty on point for those lines too. Bonus points!

Auditioned! Would love any feedback it would be very appreciated! Thank you!

@justinkangaroo Your Jonathan is kind of dark, But your Me Three-Five/Six-Five was very good. Especially the second line. For the first line, it will sound less bored and more matter of factly. The third line was pretty good too. Your Jonathan was a little intense, but it wasn't a bad take on the line, either. I really appreciate your auditions.

@MrPhoxSillanpaa Thank you! It's good to hear that you liked some of it. I see what you mean by dark and intense for Jonathan. If you want I can email you Jonathan again with your directions to hold back on the intensity. Again thank you so much for the feedback and glad you liked what your heard.

@Updown1234 You have a good clear voice and a good clear set up. I enjoyed your audition. There is only some very slight director's notes I would have made to the way you performed the lines, but nothing so off worth mentioning. Overall you are a solid candidate for the role.

  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.
