Description:
Hello Everyone!

This is my first attempt at creating a audio book/play and I wanted to see how well of a production I could make if I had outsourced work to people on BTVA. This is also an exercise for me to let go of my characters and see how actors my interpret them. Since this is somewhat of a test run, this won't be an official release and I may or may not (depending on time and quality of the production) continue the remaining chapters... so keep this in mind when you are auditioning.

The first chapter only has a few characters but this audio book will be HEAVILY NARRATION DRIVEN. The script will basically be a script translation of the actual chapter and a few of the chapters I have written have been released and you can view them at http://thecreativechase.com/bucket-knights/

Synopsis:
Crime is rampaging through the streets of Megapolis and Solomon Richards is here to save the day! Well, not reallyÖ Boy billionaire Solomon Richards embarks on a quest to find the truth to his parentís death to somehow gain a family of his own.

Armed with a cybernetic suit of armor Solomon tracks down leads within Megapolis to locate the head of a crime syndicate, which he suspects were the cause of the cataclysmic disaster that had killed his parents. As he gets closer to the top he learns a selfish life is a lonely life to lead, life is easier with friends, and things aren't always as they seem.

CHARACTERS AVAILABLE FOR AUDITION

 Collapse/Hide All Characters Expand/Show All Characters

Narrator

Narrator
Name: Narrator
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
I'm looking for a somewhat calm, nonchalant voice that can transition into a high action packed scene. Ability to understand, translate, and perform sarcasm/ comedy. As it stands the narrator will literally be about 80% of the chapter.

I understand my writing may not translate over to a smooth performance, and I will allow the narrator to switch words/ change words as long as it doesn't take away from the content.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"The night was cold, and the air smelled of salt. Solomon stared out from the ledge of the tallest building overlooking the Bay City."
Line 2:
"Solomon stepped forward to the edge of the ledge. He spread out his arms and took one last deep breath and jumped. Falling from a hundred stories wasnít something he had gotten used to yet, but he couldnít get enough as his adrenaline pumped stronger, his barometer counted down his decent to earth."
Line 3:
"Flying through the air, Solomon held the girl tightly, riding the door, and simultaneously riding one of the henchmen. Solomon smashed into the ground, smashing the man underneath the door and continued to run."

Solomon Richards

Solomon Richards
Name: Solomon Richards
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Boy Billionaire... well not really a boy anymore. He's about 21 years old, runs a company... basically he's like Batman! Hah... ok. He's arrogant, condescending, but a smooth-ish operator. Can have a short temper. Highly intelligent. Only child syndrome. I'm imagining a Johnny Storm like character but a lot more refined...

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"I can see it from here Kenzington. Iíll probably be returning earlier than usual. Intelligence is harder to come up with when it rains"
Line 2:
"Ouch that's gotta hurt... I guess next time you won't stand in front of the door, when Solomon needs a quick get away."
Line 3:
"Like I said... Take a cab from here. Don't do anything stupid like that anymore. Mixing yourself up with Yamamoto will only end with you dying."

Kenzington

Kenzington
Name: Kenzington
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
The butler. Think Alfred, but more Watari from Death Note. How I imagine his voice to be is a British-Indian accent (but please, this isn't meant to be funny, but more dignified and refined). These are his two lines in the chapter. Always cool, calm, and collected.

Line 2:
"As you say, Iíll have fresh clothes and refreshments prepared."

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.
