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 140 players and 1500 recordings made, and also chances to win monthly prize drawings. Come listen to the 200+ original scenes created so far. Thanks! Foxwolf

Description:
My name is Mint Monster VA, or MMVA for short, and I am the Co-Director for a developing online team which will be known as: “V.Musical-Subs”. V.Musical-Subs is proud to announce that we are soon to start holding auditions for our side-project, the gender-swapped version of the musical “Dear Evan Hansen”. We are looking for 3 gentlemen to play as the three leads! However, girls are allowed to audition as well- but they can only be part of the chorus.

The following are the guidelines that you must follow/understand before you even plan on auditioning for the project:

1. We will be covering the ENTIRE musical. Not just one or two songs. This will require commitment- and a lot of it. The moment you submit your audio and visuals, you cannot back out of the project until Act 2 for the sake of consistency.

2. No- you didn’t read that wrong. You will also be providing visuals for this musical- visuals, as in your upper body from the waist up. They will be formatted in a similar style like this. Do not feel embarrassed or ashamed about how you look- this musical is about social anxiety after all! If you’ve been through something, then show it off. Let your face tell your story!

3. We will be using Skype as our main sense of communication. Communication, by the way, is a very important part of this project. If you get a part in the musical and you are having troubles, please come to the director or I for help! We know how we want you to sound and we know how we can help you. But if you keep quiet, then how will the project move forward? I can promise you that the director and I are good people and if the director seems intimidating, that’s normal. Just please… Talk with us if necessary.

4. If you plan to audition and become a part of this project, we request that you have a good mic, and have minimal background noise. We want to hear your voice as crystal clear as possible.

5. The character will be portrayed by any ethnicity, which adds to my earlier statement: Do not be embarrassed or ashamed of how you look.

6. Please have a good recording software. If this project ends up slowing down just like V.Musical-Sub’s main project at the moment, we’ll have to start doing hot mic recordings.

7. Provide bloopers

8. Have fun

9. Also have a decent camera and a good room in your living residence to record

  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.
