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 160 players and 2100 recordings made, and also chances to win monthly prize drawings. Come listen to the 300+ original scenes created so far. Thanks! Foxwolf

Copy Of Completed Work
Yes [ Yes means the public is welcome to listen to auditions submitted to this project ]
10 [ number of characters available for audition ]
Thank you everyone for trying out for these roles, I never expected so many auditions. Casting people has been very hard - so many amazing voices and fantastic performances! I really appreciate it. Hopefully, I will have more characters soon too.
Once I have the finished product, which will be some time due to game testing and huge amount of artwork, I'm more than happy to provide a copy to anyone who wants it. Just send me an email. Thank you very much again :)
Fallen Angeles is an RPG novel and guide book in the early stages of development! We are looking for voice actors to play the introductory flavor text for each of the important characters.
There won't be a lot of work involved. In fact, in most cases, the actual audition text will be the bulk of your contribution. A few other monologues may be required but they will be no more than a few paragraphs.
We are starting with just a few characters but there will be close to a hundred when complete and you are more than welcome to try out for multiple roles.
Thank you for your time!
Also, I'm more than happy to provide a free copy of the completed work to all who audition.
Jane has a southern, dramatic twang to her voice. Deep south, heading towards New Orleans but I'm open to any interpretation. She speaks like a soft spoken televangelist and is very much insane:
Jane Jonas is a fanatic, or at least inspires fanatical devotion from her congregation. The Church of Righteous Ascension was a cult organisation from 1915 until their eventual demise in the year 1926 by mass suicide. All 236 members took their lives on Jane’s instruction based on the interpretation of astrological alignments. Jane maintained (and still maintains) that the afterlife is a multi mix of souls and star radiation - that all people will join as one and trigger the coming of the rebirth of the universe in the purest form, free of physical constraints. Whether she actually believes this is somewhat unclear. What is clear however is that Jane is a master of social manipulation and obsessed with holding moral superiority over all. Her followers are intensely loyal, brainwashed fanatics who would gladly die for her (again).
When the CRA ascended they found themselves trapped in the perpetual battleground of Fallen Angeles. It was the antithesis of everything they were trying to escape. Rather than abandon their views however in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary Jane refuses to yield. She believes this to be yet another test and that their new purpose is to rid the entire city of it’s corruption and sin.
The CRA are located on the northern outskirts of FA in an abandoned Cathedral that they have converted into a defensively secure compound (which they refer to as The Last Bastion of Hope). Members rarely mix with the outside world and are almost entirely self sufficient. They even have their own bullet production capability. Leafleteering and proletizing are their main exports and their numbers are growing.
As the anger and frustration at their corrupt surroundings build this fragile isolation is beginning to boil over...
"God... is... dead...
At least that's what they keep trying to tell us. Nietchze and his band of atheist declared it on earth from the rooftops. Where are they now? These murderous gangs who surround us and wish to destroy us declare it to anyone who will listen? Where are they now? Writhing and squirming in those dens of iniquity and debauchery they build for themselves.
My friends, God is not dead. And this is not heaven, hell or any such afterlife. This is just another test of faith.
When we decided back on Earth that we were in the world but not of the world - we were right. When we left that mortal plain to seek peace and truth - we were right. When we felt the love and beauty in our hearts placed there by our glorious creator - we were right! But what did we leave behind? Sin. Inequity. Damniation. Evil. That was where we were wrong.
This whole place is overflowing with effluent, with greed and gluttony and hate and wrath. And I tell every man, woman and child in this hall today we will not rest until all of this filth is swept into the void. Until purity and grace have returned.
Then, and only then, will the hour of ascension be at hand."
Lenore is a young girl, a ghostly, spooky nightmare. No specific accent.
“For her, the fair and debonair, that now so lowly lies,
The life upon her yellow hair but not within her eyes--
The life still there, upon her hair--the death upon her eyes”
Lenore by E A Poe
Lenore is an ethereal, tragic mother to a hoard of unwanted infants. Almost a child herself in thought pattern and appearance but with a deep swirling knowledge that goes beyond her years
If a young child becomes a lost soul they will make their way to her at the decrepit Victorian Orphanage towards the center of FA. The building itself in like an upside down tower, with a corkscrew of countless subterranean levels.
The Orphanage is a disturbing place, and the two levels above ground seem abandoned with old rotting cots and stuffed animals littering the dormitories.
Lenore cares little for the outside world. The children who are her wards are her only concern. She adamantly believes that free will is the cause of all suffering. The children here are hive minded, unthinking ants who are treated with love but are very much disposable. Lenore seems to be able to see what any of her children see. She can feel anything her children can feel. She can summon and control them at her command. If anything would change her mind about her unending isolation it would be for one reason only. To extend her hive like grip and bring a true “peace” to the world.
"Why have you come to this place? We have no need of you here. You will find only pain and death awaits you. Abandon us like we have always been abandoned. Leave us to our perpetual state of unwantedness. Your chaotic thoughts echo through these walls and draw in blood the imagined choices you make. It sickens us.
If it is the future you seek, know that all is gone. Seek it elsewhere. If it is the present you crave, know that it has no meaning and spreads like oil on sand. If it is the past you harken to, then known you search for the scrawled ramblings of a madman written in poison"
Troni is mid to high pitched with an erratic nervousness to her voice! Character Details:
Troni or more formally The Metatron or simply the celestial scribe was the former voice of God. Her duty was to relay commandments, proclamations and record all that encompassed godly communication. Her position of power was unparalleled. Troni was much more than a glorified message runner. She harnessed the raw power of God as a direct, autonomous ambassador. Many of the major doctrinal changes and miraculous interventions on earth were a result of her own leadership and decision making. More akin to a Vice President than a Hermes.
However all this changed at the fall. With God's death came a complete loss of power for Troni as well as her greatest confidant and mentor. Stripped of all divine intervention Troni is now an almighty power wielding genius with the batteries taken out.
"Inside these pages lies the answer to the most important question there ever was and ever will be. How do we bring him back? It is impossible for God to just die, something else must be going on. If I can only figure that out everything will be fine (Hysterical laughter)
I sense the answer is a simple one, more elementary even than In the Beginning. I also sense a dark presence growing that will engulf the answer if we're not careful.
I feel the infinity of time leaking out into nothingness. We need to hurry."
1920s gangster style accent, think
Van Heflin is Philip Marlow! Vincent Price style would work really well too
Remiel (aka Mr White) is the leader of the tick tock gang in Heaven’s kitchen. Remiel is famed for his ability to stay out major conflicts while promoting his own interests and damaging those of his competitors. His neutrality is so extreme some view it as evil. Highly intelligent and highly calculating Remiel will make decisions based purely on whether or not they pose a strategic advantage.
When I imagine Arty he has a Chicago accent and mid to high pitched. I'm open to any interpretation though.
Arifeloz or Arty is the head of the five point gang in FA dock authority. The five point gang have one thing going for them. Numbers. They have more foot soldiers at their disposal than all of the other gangs combined. Most are low skilled, poorly armed union and dock workers. The bulk of Arty's force are untrustworthy and apt to flee when the going gets tough. This has made Arty extremely paranoid and see insurrection around every corner. He rules the five points with an iron fist and does not tolerate failure.
"The thing about vice is, everybody has one. Prohibit it and you just drive it behind closed doors where people like me can make a tidy profit from it. It don't cure nothing, if anything demand increases.
When they first told me alcohol was banned in the city I broke out one of my finest bottles of champagne to celebrate! Just another imaginary sin pushed into the dark, just where we want it"
Bunny Forbes is a meat hook wielding, pistol packing psychopath. Left hand and lover to Remiel White, Bunny exerts significant influence on the tick tock gangs leadership and direction.
Bunny's incredible bravery and remarkable reflexes make her one of the most formidable opponents in FA. These skills are hampered however by her quick temper, volatile personality and creative interpretation of reality.
Bunny and Remiel have a symbiotic relationship (many would say toxic codependency, although never in earshot). Remiel's cold, calculating nature often stifles the taking of more ambitious risks. Bunny's penchant of chaos is self destructive. When the two collide you have a perfect combination of criminal villany.
It goes without saying that Bunny is not the type to forgive and forget or treat her enemies mercifully.
Camp, English - I guess a lot like Lucifer from the show!
Downtown is oozing with cat houses, night clubs, speakeasies and opium dens. Which means Lucifer's vaults are oozing with gold (and a little frankincense and myrrh). A charismatic, natural leader surrounded by a loyal and crack squad of demons what Lucifer lacks in numbers he makes up for in skill and intensity.
Encircled by enemies he walks a razorwire tightrope with a heavy crown on his head. An attack could come from any power player. But the question they have to ask themselves is, do you really want to dance with the devil?
""What, me? Oh no, I don't do sound bites, I'm the devil. Oh go on then. How about something like I put the evil in devil. No that's rubbish. I put the sin in satin? The bub in Beelzebub? Oh just think of something clever and put that down and I'll sign off on it. Maybe something Donne or Keats said about me, they were always so nice. Anyway, must shoot, I have a little soiree that I'm already late for.""
Probably a fairly deep voice, Brienne of Tarth like perhaps?
Leader of the Knights Templar, Geula is the personification of sacrifice and salvation. The only human born child of God she is the banner woman of the fight between good and evil. Where others wish to proliferate or destroy sin Geula strives for rehabilitation.
Geula leads an order of Templar Knights sworn to uphold the ancient tenants of chivalry and compassion. They believe no one is beyond saving and that protecting the citizens of FA is the most important duty they can perform.
Really not sure how Skull would sound, I'd love to hear interpretations!
Skull is the leader of the hedonistic and brash Hell's Demons biker gang. It is a position that grants him the keys to Starset Boulevard and therefore the main fuel supply of F.A. Without fuel FA would be brought to its knees within a matter of weeks and Skull is not unaware of that fact. Quite the opposite, he has used this one simple resource to build an empire.
Never seen without his skull shaped motorcycle helmet and black leathers he is a formidable sight to behold. He is as tough and as dangerous as he looks. Hell's Demons only follow strength.
You don't become the leader of a vicious gang of thugs without being, well… a vicious thug yourself. But you don't stay there for long either unless you have a brain to back it up. Skull is the rare and extremely dangerous combination of both.
"War is waged by men and machines. And the blood of machines is oil. You can talk all you like of manpower but if you don't have bikes or cars or ships you got nothing. Try walking a few blocks in downtown at night and tell me you don't need a vehicle. Imagine running a supply convoy without a truck?
Every barrel of fuel that comes into FA comes through Starset Boulevard. And that means it comes through us. We are the beating artery that keeps this city alive. Or not."
Archie was born poor. That didn't last long. A bookie boy for small time mafia gangs Archie was able to gleam everything he needed to know about the trade before he was 15 years old. A masterful gambler (and even better a fixer) Archie seems to hit lucky with everything he touches, especially the long shorts. This accumulated wealth has allowed Archie to build an illegal gambling network who’s tendrils reach even the lightest parts of the city.
Even now, with more money that he could possibly spend Archie remains a prolific gambler. Both in matters of money, ambition and personal safety. The brain is and will always remain a wild card.
"There is no fun in risking a nickel with a million dollars sitting in your bank. Having a nickle in the bank and risking a nickel is a thrill. Better still? Having a nickle in the bank and risking a million. That's when things become interesting..."
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.
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.
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.
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.
