Share/Save/Bookmark

Hey guys. So I made this new game to help voice actors of any level grow as performers. It focuses on voice acting and improv. You record some dialogue, then pass it onto someone else and they respond, then to the next etc. If you're interested, you can try it out at www.voicereact.com. There's now over 340 players and 5200 recordings made, and also chances to win monthly prize drawings. Come listen to the 750+ original scenes created so far. Thanks! Foxwolf

Description:
In honor of the 28th season of the Simpsons, we're taking a step back to 1993 (and maybe a bit beyond.) The original series of Simpsons comic material from Bongo! began in 1993 and still continues strong today. With numerous heroes, villains, story arcs, side characters, and even entire spin-off series, it's no wonder why Bongo! has achieved the record for longest running comic series based off of a TV show. In honor of this legacy, we'll be taking a look back at the classic series of comics, from issues #1 to #50.

During the original run, the comic often coincided with the Simpsons television series, of which the issues were based on. As such, the characters will be expected to sound similar to their prime-time counterparts.
Here's a handy-dandy list of the show's main voice actors, so you can base your voice off of their performances accordingly:



HOMER SIMPSON- Dan Castanella

BART SIMPSON- Nancy Cartwright

MARGE SIMPSON- Julie Knaver

LISA SIMPSON- Yeardley Smith

MOE SZYSLAK- Hank Azaria

MONTGOMERY BURNS- Harry Shearer





((PLEASE, KEEP IN MIND THAT THE ROLE OF BART SIMPSON HAS BEEN TAKEN AND IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR AUDITION.))



Once auditions are complete, the cast actors must send an email to theamazingbloo@gmail.com; please attach lines from the first issue of The Simpsons comics.


Individual issues will be uploaded to my personal Youtube account for public viewing. With this in mind, best of luck at the auditions, and remember to keep on doh'ing.

 Collapse/Hide All Characters Expand/Show All Characters

Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson
Name: Homer Simpson
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Homer's a man of many words. He's extremely expressive, even considering his lazy personality. He's a clumsy, misguided, yet well-meaning father. Despite his instinct's best interests, he cares for his family and will go to any length to protect them. That said, he's often distracted, has a passion for anything food-related, and is extremely lazy at his work. Check out Dan Castanella's performace. Emulate him as much as possible.

Line 3:
"Don't let Krusty's death get you down, boy. People die all the time, just like that. Why, you could wake up dead tomorrow. (long pause) Well... g'night!"

Marge Simpson

Marge Simpson
Name: Marge Simpson
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Marge is your semi-typical mother. We all know someone like her. Turstworthy, worrisome, sympathetic, extremely cautious of her children, and well-meaning (most of the time.) And she can put up with Homer Simpson. That takes guts. Marge has a raspery voice, most-likely weighed down from years of looking after Homer and the kids. It's hard to describe in words how to deliver a perfect Marge performance. I'd strongly advise checking out Julie Knaver's perfomance. You'll see what I mean immediately.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Lisa, you’re learning many lessons tonight. (Pause) And one of them is to always give your mother the benefit of the doubt."
Line 2:
"I want us to deal with the issues raised by this book. {Homer seems thoughtful, then tosses it into the fire}. *sigh* I knew we shouldn’t have put a fireplace in the bedroom."
Line 3:
"You know Homer, when I found out about this I went through a wide range of emotions. First I was nervous, then anxious, then wary, then apprehensive, then kinda sleepy, then worried, and then concerned. But now I realize that being a spaceman is something you have to do."

Bart Simpson

Bart Simpson
Name: Bart Simpson
Gender: Male
Age: Child
Characteristics/Notes:

Lisa Simpson

Lisa Simpson
Name: Lisa Simpson
Gender: Female
Age: Child
Characteristics/Notes:
Lisa's a girl well beyond her years. She believes, that with all the horrible in the world, that there's always a cure. And, by god, if there's anyone who's going to find that cure, it's her. A strong list of values of environmentalism and truth is furthered by her surprising amount of brainpower. Much smarter than anyone else in her class (or in the classes above her), she cherishes her education and goes bordernline insane without some form of this. Her voice retains a childlike innocence, while also being the calm, voice of reason. Out of the majority of the characters, her voice is the hardest to nail. Refer to Yeardley Smith's performance for tips on how to form an accurate voice for the character.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Reciting a poem, do this with clarity) I had a cat named Snowball. She died! She died!
Mom said she was sleeping. She lied! She lied!
Why oh why is my cat dead? Couldn’t that Chrysler hit me instead?
I had a hamster named Snuffy. He died—"
Line 2:
"(To Bart) ..But you know Bart, some philosophers believe that nobody is born with a soul. That you have to earn one through suffering and thought and prayer. Like you did last night."
Line 3:
"(To Marge) I’m proud of you, mom. You’re like Christopher Columbus. You discovered something millions of people knew about before you."

Characteristics/Notes:
Mr. Burn's a man of class, but he's also quite a tight-wad. Managing the Nuclear Power Plant, he's extremely rich. Being the age he is, he often forgets what year he's living in and reverts to the trends of his youth. He's cared for by the ambiguously gay Mr. Smithers.

  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.
