Description:
ROUND 2! INITIAL CASTING COMPLETED! PLEASED ADD ME ON SKYPE IF YOU HAVE BEEN CASTED! Side note: I have been writing scripts for my theatre program so I was digressed from this project. But it is back on track and I will be more dedicated to it!

"Join Phillip, John, Nikki, and Marcus as they all battle the zombie apocalypse from their view points They'll deal with their own challenges. Psychotic people, zealous zombies, and nerve-wracking nature. These are, their Zed Perspectives." Above is the link to my (unfinished) Wattpad story. The audiobook will most likely be published on Youtube.

***REQUIREMENTS***
1. Must have a decent mic, edit your audio if you have to (no echo, background/fuzzy noise, etc).
2. Must be 13+ (and be alright with cursing).
3. Must have SOME type of experience (acting, voice acting, musicals, theatre, film, etc).
4. Must be DEDICATED and able to be called on at most times.
5. Must have a relatively free weekend schedule.
6. If you are a computer artist please Skype me because I would like sketches done of the lead characters.

***NOTES***
Most importunately: Have fun with it. I'd like your audition to be relatively professional, but once I cast you we can have more of a friend relationship than a boss-employee one. The story is entirely first person so there is no "Narrator" role, the leads will simply first-person narrate the story. I would recommend reading a bit of it before your audition to get a feel for your character, and obviously you're going to have to read the whole story considering you'll be narrating the whole thing (the only exception would be secondary characters, reoccurring characters, and extras). In order to make sure you've read the requirements and notes (my bio doesn't matter too much) please comment "The Graveyard Book" in your audition comments, so that way I may "weed out" anyone who doesn't care enough about the project to read up to this point. Thanks!

A bit about myself: I am a 17 year old amateur writer, actor, and editor living in Southern California. I would like to go into film after high school and am pretty laid back for the most part unless I'm stressed about a deadline or something. Anyway, best of luck, actors!

Just offering a tip. The character descriptions you gave tell us nothing about what they sound like. Extra details are nice, but make sure to talk about what their personality is like, as well as their tone of voice.

@sixfootblue Thanks! I made this before I had to leave in a hurry yesterday and planned on cleaning it up today. :D

@sixfootblue To be fair, however, I did put in parenthesis what the character should sound like in the moment. I know this may not be the case for all people but I thought giving their age, height, weight, job, etc. would help since this is an audio book and these aren't already-voiced characters I'm pretty loose with how they sound like.

@randumpotato Understandable, but a lot of the "in the moment" descriptions can still vary depending on the person's demeanor. Quiet and reserved characters will react differently than loud brash ones for instance. :P

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.
