CALLING CURIOUS VOICE ACTORS: Hey guys. So I've created a little voice acting and improv game, and I'm looking for some people to beta test the site, help find any potential issues, give feedback etc.
The website allows 2-10 players per game, each of whom in turn records a line directly on the site. If interested, head over here and let me know. Thanks! Foxwolf.

UPDATE 7/4): 4 more people sent Beta Access details - 74 testers total. Check your PM inbox here

What to do as a Beta Tester - each of you log into the new site and click on "Play" to start a new game. Record something and submit it for other Players to record. Check your invites to join other games.

There are currently 29 games in-progress and 9 out of 38 invites responded to. Invites will now expire after 24 hours.
Only when games get completed will the scene get posted for everyone to listen to all the players recordings.

(WE ARE LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT FEMALE IDOL, LOOK BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION!)
(WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR TWO MALE IDOLS TO CREATE A SUBGROUP WITH A MALE IDOL CURRENTLY CASTED! MORE INFO ON REQUIREMENTS BELOW!)

Hello everyone! Producer-san here! I have been the proud producer of a new and upcoming net-idol group soon to be released! In production i have found that i need many more skilled members to become a part of Crystal Lust, and join us in production!

For those who do not know, a Net-Idol is a term coined for celebrities that gain popularity through various media on the internet related to Japanese pop and otaku culture.

This group is looking for a replacement to a previous idol casted, that do to circumstances pertaining to availability has left the group. We are now holding auditions for one more female member to become a part of the amazing experience that is Crystal Lust!
Another very important thing we are looking for is two idols for a male idol subgroup! These idols would create the first male subgroup for Crystal Lust.
We are accepting any auditions we can and hope to hear from all of you soon!

We are in fact looking for MMD Users to help us create Models, Choreography, and Stages for use in MMD to create dance videos in pair with our songs. These members will be counted as part of the production crew and will be given credit for their work where it is needed! This is your chance to work for and help a professional net-idol group create quality dances for original songs and covers! MMD Users should audition via E-mail and are expected to have examples of their work ready.

***WE WILL BE SINGING ORIGINAL SONGS***
***If money money is made, you will get a cut of the profit based on your work and effort!***

Our goal is to become the #1 Net-Idol group on the web! We will do this by bringing quality, professional singing and productions in various forms to our viewers, listeners, and fans. Not only bringing original songs, but doing covers of songs from popular Anime and Idol Groups from Japanese culture.


Requirements:

This group is going to be set up in a very professional way. Remember, we will be creating original songs! We will be doing covers as-well but not as many. We expect the best quality from our members as they must be willing to do hard work as-well as have fun creating our music. We will be singing in both Japanese and English so you must be able to sing in Japanese as-well as English! Mind you they're is an age limit of 13-17 years old except for production roles. We do take exceptions to this rule though in light of experience and talent.

Members are divided into groups of three members in the form of subgroups. This allows for better organization and overall makes things easier for production. A name for these subgroups will be decided by the singers in a joint effort with me and my co-producer. Placement in these groups will be decided by me and my co-producer.

You must be conformable with being on camera, dancing, lip syncing, and other activities if needed! Being comfortable on camera is a must! As it allows for interviews, public appearance, and group activities with production where being on camera is a must!

Everyone auditioning is also required to have a Japanese stage name ready. Stage names can be changed before production if needed after your role is accepted. Keep in mind, production will start very soon after all roles are casted!

Singsonas will be made for the singer, these help keep the members other works and their personal life safe! (A singsona is a character that may not be what the character looks like, but is used to personify their voice or personality.) They will reflect who the singer is as a person and reflect what role their voice plays within the group.

MMD User Requirements:

MMD Users are highly needed! Multiple MMD Users will be needed for this project and will be given credit for there works individually. MMD Producers will be expected to create models; create stages for the models to dance on; and to co-ordinate dance numbers as choreography to the music. You must have examples of your work ready at the time of audition, and are expected to audition via e-mail as well as putting necessary information on here.

YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE AT LEAST MOST OF THE TIME. PRODUCTION WILL ONLY WORK OUT WITH FULL CO-OPERATION OF THE PRODUCERS AND MEMBERS IN UNITY WITH THE OWNERS. IF YOU ARE UNAVAILABLE FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME WITHOUT EXPLANATION, THERE MAY BE CONSEQUENCES.

  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.
