i cut it REALLY close with the time (it's 11:09PM as i type this) but i added auditions for tsubaki and hiroko!!!
sorry but i accidentally cut out the last sentence of tsubaki's line so i just threw in a blooper as a a hope that you wouldn't notice it too much. thanks again for listening to me talking and stuff. go to »
Extending the deadline for this!! I haven't decided how long the extension will be, but seeing how there are zero auditions for the cafe owner (omg haha) I'll have to wait before I cast anyone!! go to »
@muromaki Glad to hear the update! I might be wrong, so ignore me if it's not true but I'm pretty sure that you guys aren't too familiar with BTVA yet and that being said, if you comment on someone's audition they actually don't normally receive a notification or anything like that. But commenting on people's profiles will give them notifications most times and you can also use the forums section of the site to also possibly contact people.
But! if that's something you already knew just ignore me omg! i only say this because I've been involved in projects before where there was a gap in communications so if necessary i wanted to let you know so you could avoid the possible frustration! > <
(And yeah like it has a great format but BTVA sucks sometimes especially when it comes to getting ahold of people hahAH) go to »
Happy New Year!! Thanks so much for the cast, I'll shoot you an email because I know how horribly long it takes to email like 9 people, so yeah! (I'll also follow the tumblr) Thanks so much!! Have a great night!! go to »
ok i auditioned for akko i will probably come back for more but know that i got really tired half way through and just ended up screaming the shiny arc part a lot but they made me laugh editing so i left them in go to »
@Sachiko Um, "I don't mean to interrupt", but I'm pretty sure this is an original project, and not one based on Greek or Roman Mythology if you didn't realize from all of the other characters....
And I don't want to start anything, but seriously, that was a little bit rude on your part, to assume any role to be "wrong" without knowing about the project in the slightest. (Without even auditioning either, but that's none of my business.) go to »
@amjugan Thank you very much! To be honest, I like them both (their routes were me fav) so I don't have a preference! It'd be completely your call if you considered casting me. Thanks again, have a great night/day, whatever time it is! go to »
Not to burst your bubble or anything, but I'm pretty positive you're not supposed to do any dubs of Katawa Shoujo according to the FAQ on the game's site. (http://ks.renai.us/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4717) I know the only reason they let Katawa Seiyu do it was because they had special permission. Like I said, sorry to be the buzzkill, but I think it'd be a lot worse if you got into legal trouble from your hard work. go to »
@BlueSkye Hi! Omg thanks so much! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my skype is nakamuranyan14 if you need it! Ahhh I listened to my audition and cringed at the quality, so thankfully, know that my recording has gotten a lot better since this was submitted. Have a great day/night! I look forward to hearing from you! go to »
you deleted me audition.....................i worked hard on it......................walks away sadly...................................................................................................... go to »
I don't think many people realize that the initial issue is somewhat resolved, plus it became less about instant bans, and more about a particular admin ignoring the good points many of the users made.
Also, if you would have read the new message banner at the top of every project, you'd know that the infamous "Troll-B-Gone" proposal has been abolished, and wasn't ever an official decision in the first place.
@OptimusSolo Rad, you know you're pretty alright! And sorry to generalize, I guess since interacting with Admins is such a rare occasion on this corner of the site, it was easier to assume the entire population of admins didn't really care what the casting call users had to say than to think otherwise. But thanks for proving that wrong, I tell ya. And I'm so incredibly happy to see that there's a light at the end of the tunnel, and one that doesn't involve creating a new account...
Thanks again for finally noticing us, senpai! go to »
@OptimusSolo Thank the lord, hallelujah. We've been heard. I understand what you're saying, but please do take into account that we're all saying these things because we also love this site as well. Auditions are a lot a lot of work, as you may understand, and all of the people below me are so hard-working it seems so unreal to me that someone else has the power to take the result of such time away.
Thanks, and hopefully we can come to a real nice solution, and not stop responding half way through a conversation... (Sorry, no disrespect, but the proof is in the pudding....) Resorting to banning just seems like overkill to me, and let me tell you, worse things have been said out on the internet than anything I've heard on BTVA. go to »
This is extremely unprofessional and plain childish. If you really think you deserve to be an "administrator" then at the very LEAST, answer your users when you stir up nonsense like this. Deleting comments is only making me think that you have things to hide and wow, why would anyone trust someone who would do such a shady thing? Plus, how hypocritical, running away when you're telling US to be more serious.
The set up on this site is really great and so are most of the people on it, (I mean look at how many people are commenting below me, it's amazing.) but come on, don't think you're above basic professionalism and plain etiquette just to feel more superior.... go to »
While I think creative freedoms are important, for future reference, please understand that even if your intentions are pure, talking about such a horrific event can reopen a lot of wounds and end up hurting people more than educating or allowing them move on. Columbine is one of those things that should be left untouched, kinda like the Titanic. go to »
@Gridon I saw them! It's kinda immature....Can't this be a democracy where we elect our administrators? It doesn't make sense how someone has power over people who are actually actively involved on the site. Like, wow, some of the people on this site are so hard working, I've seen people with over 200 auditions in one month. Don't the people who have proved their commitment to BTVA deserve it?
Look, now, before this one is deleted, I have freedom of speech.... go to »
@NCZ Well I mean, if the project owner doesn't find it funny, can't they just delete it? Isn't that what that feature is there for? I don't think the administrators have any right to "ban" people for just trying to make people laugh.... And that's just me but, you see what I'm getting at right? If a project isn't completed, that's only between the director and the actors, right? I don't see why you'd have to waste your time doing something so tedious like listening to all the auditions and making sure they're not "Troll" auditions. Admins should be there when users feel personally victimized, and unless you've had a bad experience with beans, I don't think "fart sounds" is all that damaging...
Still, I want to maintain respectful, but I'm pretty sure majority agrees with me. I understand what you're saying, but it's not going to read well. I agree if it's malicious, but that's not too common here, and if someone sees it as malicious, then that should be between the users. You wouldn't want the police to get involved over two soccer moms fighting over whichever laundry detergent worked better right? Unless something is really really serious, admins shouldn't have to step in, and even so the Casting Call community is really tightly knitted and we're there for one another. And I can show you examples of that on multiple occasions if you don't believe me. go to »
In regards to this whole thing. In the inspiring and paramount words of Tupac: "Only God can judge me, is that right? God can judge me now.......Only God baby, nobody else, nobody else.....All you other mother****ers git out mah bidness......" go to »
@NCZ As a serious question, what do you consider a "troll audition", because certainly, you must realize that there is a difference between creative humor and trolling in order to disrupt or muddle a project? With all due respect, I have most definitely fallen in love with the BTVA community not only for its serious talent, but its ability to make me smile, which I'm hoping isn't too much to ask for?
While I have no jurisdiction in the matter, I would humbly request you at least try to reevaluate considering you might not have any right as to judge what is a "troll" project or audition. While I love this community, I'd hate to see it fall apart over something like this, because even the silly auditions take a lot of time and effort! (Probably even more so than serious auditions, do you know how hard it is to make someone laugh? It's not effortless, I tell ya. C:) Thanks for your time. go to »
@Jin Kazama Wow, you're not making yourself look any better. But to enlighten your dark an obviously undernourished sense of humanity, I am merely defending a fellow creator. "Getting on someone's good side only to get a part" is seriously a disgusting suggestion that makes me question many things that should never be questioned. Last time I checked, it wasn't your job to decide which projects will make it or not. Time restrictions are the business of the director alone and wow, am I sensing abandonment issues? Why are you so afraid of the director cancelling? Please, like I said, think over what you're saying, because it's not looking good buddy. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. I'm really sorry anonymity has made you feel like you can say whatever you want and get away with it. But guess what? The project owner is a living, breathing, person. And for you to be so incredibly malicious to them and other VAs makes me feel like you're the one who should reevaluate. Have a good one. go to »
@Jin Kazama Seriously, there's no reason for you to be a jerk. Maybe it's not your cup of tea, but someone else might really look forward to auditioning for this project. For you to call someone else's project garbage is just an awful move as a voice actor. As a firm believer that every creation is a valid one, you really are only speaking for the judgmental, and low self you are when you say nobody thinks its a good idea. Please think about the consequences of your actions. I hope no directors will see this and think badly of you, however, I have no means of stopping them. go to »
@4rzu Thank you very much for auditioning. I must say that I was highly amused by your auditions, one could say that I was capslock "dying" with laughter, and I'm very happy to say that you've nailed it. I look forward to seeing our paths cross again...... *mysteriously backs into the darkness* go to »
@kiske~ Hey! I'm also one of the owners of this project! While I really love your voice, and your overall expression, I'd have to say that your microphone quality is sadly a hindrance to your talent. While I understand that it's tough for everyone to have top of the line quality, it's something you have to look at. Hopefully, you understand! But overall, a solid audition. Thanks so much for auditioning! go to »
Thanks everyone for auditioning!! It was so so so so hard to make decisions, but I'm so proud of everyone who did audition, and those who made the cut. While I don't have a problem contacting the people who have been cast, *****please please please contact me, because as much as I'd love to hear from you all, it's a hassle to contact 13 people.
My Skype is nakamuranyan14, my email address is email@example.com, and you can also contact me on tumblr, (url: shinra-kouketsu.tumblr.com) or on twitter @Megamordio.
OH GOODNESS HECK YEAH. Wait sorry, gotta maintain my professional charm. BUT YAY THANKS SO MUCH FOR CASTING ME. I'm actually really really excited about this project. I'll contact you as soon as I can, oh goodness gracious, thank you. go to »
I added an audition for Hotaru and the Rectangle. I wasn't quite sure what you were looking for, so I threw it together, complete with a creeptastic song I found floating around the interwebs, and me being weird in three different ways. Hope I did okay! go to »
Sent ya an audition for Pancake! I've been kind of tongue-tied today, (cANT EVEN TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I ACCIDENTALLY SAID SNOW EGGS) so I left in a blooper. Enjoy my "wonderful" beatboxing. I'll probably audition for more tomorrow! Or sometime or another. go to »
I'm having some difficulty deciding on Yomi, so I'm going to cast her first thing tomorrow. (I just returned from a concert so and since there are a lot of auditions, my ears are getting a little angry with me.) go to »
If you're cast, please do contact me, preferably via email or Skype, or you could even message me on tumblr or my twitter, which is @megamordio. Really, anything works. Also, some of you I'm considering for the actual Black Rock Shooter series, so I'll do my best to get a hold of you!! Thanks so much for every single audition! Please do understand that while I did have great difficulty picking, I did have to cut some of my favorites due to shabby mic quality, or "reading" as the character, rather than the preferred "voicing" the character.
Cheers! Congrats to those who make the cut!!!
BLACKKKKK ROOOOCKKKK SHUUUTTTAAAAAAA DOKO E ITTTAAA NOOOOOOOOOOOOO???!!? sorry i got excited, but OKAY HECK YEAH go to »
I thought this sounded cool, so so far, I've auditioned for Carson and a demon voice I guess? I give people who voice demons or like batman a lot of credit, it really hurts your throat! I'll probably audition for more tomorrow! (It's almost one in the morning where I am haha) go to »
If anyone's wondering about the progress, at the current moment, I am taking the OVA video and taking out audio so that way I can easily mix in the voice over clips. hECK YEAH THIS IS GONNA BE A LOT OF FUN. well maybe not to edit but to do with you guys so HECK YEAH go to »
@Lezleigh Millhauser Sorry for the late response! Really, it's up to your interpretation since I'm just looking at voices for now, but I meant it in a more humorous/crazy way. But I'd be interested in how you're thinking of doing it. Thanks for auditioning! Can't wait to hear them! go to »
@CDawg No worries! It didn't at all hinder your audition, and I actually really like your voice! Thanks for auditioning! If you really want me to though, I'd have no problem with letting you give it another go? I'm highly self-critical myself, so I totally understand if you'd want to do that. go to »
@SyndalKin oIH MY GOD I COULDNT STOP LAUGHING AT THAT but anyway- Thank you so much! I enjoyed your auditions and you are surely one of the actors we're considering especially for your range and the emotion you show! Have a great day~ go to »
@Mordio I was just stating something, which is a coincidence. If I wanted to be rude I would be rude and say nasty things, but I just flat out said it. I was just pointing out that there was an actual goddess Nyx, and your sarcasm practically kills me. reply »
@Mordio ^ yep. Unless you get special permission as well. Thats what I did when I wanted to do KS as well. I asked and they said yes. Just that I can't really do vn dubs perfectly so mine is put on a long hold. reply »
Yay! more fans! Please audition when you can. I've also provided a link in the description to the chapter 1 trailer that I've pieced together for this project. Let me know what you think :) reply »
@Mordio Heyyaa!! Thanks for replyyiinng *A* And can you just send me an e-mail confirming thingy mabobies? It's just so that I have you...thing...if I need it....that....does that make sense? XDDDD reply »
@Mordio Nobody's hard work or efforts will be for naught. That was never an option or the intention. We will be working to provide everyone with a better product. No one's freedom's will be taken away. I am somewhat perplexed at the commentary directed towards the 'admin team' from some of you seeing how I don't believe most of you have interacted with the majority of us. But that is neither here nor there. Changes are coming and there is no need for anyone to be worried about them. Trust me. reply »
@Mordio You're right. That's why I should just stick with making Kingdom Hearts audio movies. I'm currently working on the script for the next audio movie. I usually work on the script for the next audio movie while I wait for the recorded lines from the cast members from both the Rugrats and Prom audio movies. The next one is going to be about Sora and Kairi's wedding. The casting call won't be posted until I can get the script done. reply »
@Mordio The admins and mods here quite frankly don't know how to handle the system when their users don't agree with the policies. It's honestly ridiculous. How can they expect to run a website like this? reply »
@Mordio Alright, thanks! I just sent my audition in, and sorry if the third line isn't "crazy" enough. I got bored halfway through recording and recorded some stupid takes of the third line xD Feedback would be awesome if you have the time! ^^ reply »
@Mordio Ahhhh thank you! I sent in another audition for Nui because when I was recording my auditions yesterday she hadn't been put up yet oops. But yes, thank you for considering me! (Aha, yes, when I screw up it tends to be rather comical oops. Bloopers are the best) reply »
