Hello everyone!

Above and Below is a BBC Award Winning audio series that is currently on the look-out for fresh and exciting voice talent to take part in our first official series. With Series One set to be unveiled to the public in August of this year…we have numerous roles to fill, both large and small. As such, this week we have been sending out casting call’s throughout a wide variety of talent agency’s and voice acting web site's. For any voice actor looking to get involved in such an ambitious and highly professional project and to gain significant experience in the voice acting industry…this project might very well be for you!

Launching it’s 75 minute pilot episode on it’s own website (www.aboveandbelowseries.co.uk), the series debuted to great critical acclaim...receiving a BBC Audio Award under the category of “Best Online Audio Drama” at the BBC Television Centre last year. Having taken a year out to focus on writing Above and Below’s first official series…we are now looking to cast each of the exciting roles contained in our new scripts, with plans to record and produce the entirety of Series 1 before a launch date in September.

If you would like the opportunity to formally audition for a role on the show, please record your auditions for the following characters before submitting them for this particular casting call or by sending them off to Daniel Macnaughton, our project's casting director at danmacnaughton@outlook.com.

Thank you for your time everyone!

The Above and Below Team

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.
