Description:
The crew of A WEEK IN GEEKDOM have decided to create something special, an appreciation for underwhelming or underrated/misused comic book characters. IN doing so we've created what we call the Marvel fanverse, consisting of four series "Rebirth of the Scorpion" will be the first series of motion comics detailing with (in this case) my favorite Spider-Man villain, "Scorpion". Unfortunately in the official canon he will always be a glorified cannon fodder (except his days as dark spidey and venom but even then...)

The project is already into production with my cohosts taking care of the art and motion while I've written the story, characters and first drafts of the script. This new series will show our love and appreciation to one of the lesser popular spidey villains in a completely new origin with moving pictures and the finest voice talent we can find! I didn't know about BTVA's "Casting Call" so it's a real honor to post this and have you guys check this crazy idea out and maybe like it! It's a work in progress of friends, geeks, family and all those that love the medium. I hope you'll stick around for the fun!

----

Still with us? EPIC! This is the story of a new scientific mind and how bad things can happen to good but weak people and how they react. MacDonald Gargan has just enlisted work in the Smythe Corporation and is involved in the construction of new bio-engineer suits that will reshape the future of mankind. Little does he know that his bosses don't necessarily have a puritan outlook on their job. Mac faces competition from a rival and will come to his own as a key player in our Marvel "fanverse".

Gargan has already been cast but the supporting cast is equally important... and for the curious this story takes place almost a year before Peter Parker's fateful trip to Oscorp. (similar to the Ultimate Universe)

--------------------------------

UPDATE: Thanks again for all the help and participation folks! My team and I are more than thrilled to have such wonderful talent! And in case you are all curious the titular role has already been cast but I'll put a description for those who are curious.

I have also decided to add a previously casted role into this to give more ppl a shot to audition.

---------------------------------

UPDATE 2: I extended the auditions for another week so as to give people a chance for the remaining characters.

---------------------------------

UPDATE 3: We've extended the project auditions for one final week to give everyone a chance, thank you all the support! Recording will begin soon after next week. :)

Peter Parker (Cameo)

Peter Parker (Cameo)
Name: Peter Parker (Cameo)
Gender: Male
Age: Teenager
Characteristics/Notes:
To say nerd/geek is an understatement for unlucky Peter Parker. Zero luck with the girls but an awesome A student with the promise of greatness. (This takes place a year before he becomes Spider-Man)

He is but one of many students on a science class trip to Smythe Corporation to look at annual tests for new mechanical suits.

Voice: Any teen geek voice is fine. Preferably in the upper register, a performance inspired by Keaton or Bell would be fantastic but really it's your take on such a classic character.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"You've got to admit the output these machines are exerting... (pauses momentarily) simply fascinating! revolutionary maybe-- You listening Harry?"
Line 2:
"Amazing work sir!"

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why does my MP3 not upload?
We understand that some users are getting errors when uploading MP3 files. Certain encodings will not be compatible with the upload code. Originally Audacity saved MP3s worked at the time Casting Call was written. However the software may have changed the way it saves MP3s. At an unknown future time, the process will change where auditions will be recorded and saved directly on the site. In the meantime, please ask fellow members who have success with MP3 uploads how they are saving/encoding their files. Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.
• 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.
• How do I contact members cast for a project?
You can contact members using Private Messaging feature available here in the forums.
