Description:
The story proper is the tale of four kids (technically five at the beginning, but she does not last long) who make a snowman out of the frosted beer and other alcoholic beverages spilled into the snow after an outdoor kegger/concert. After placing a magic whiskey flask they found on a dead hobo in his hand, the irate Sloshy is brought to life. Instead of song and dance, Sloshy mostly makes harsh insights and has the kids perform menial tasks for him, including spending their allowances on his drinking habit.
Meanwhile, a mean-spirited scientist, under the guise of a birthday party magician, plans to use the local children in a nefarious experiment upon their fragile minds... Making them watch horrible holiday specials and writing down their reactions.
This is an idea I have had going around in my head for a few months now. If I get enough positive reaction to it, then I plan on having it out around Christmas this year. Another note I am also interested in people willing to do illustrations for the project, as I suck at drawing. This will either be a podcast, or an illustrated audio book, depending.
Due to the sudden increase of interest in this project, I have decided to give another week to the deadline so more people will have a chance to try out.

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.
