Agent Mockingbird

Agent Mockingbird

Starlingís best friend and second-in-command, Agent Mockingbird is a bit of a raucous personality specializing in undercover work. Good with accents/languages, good at putting on a show, and good at slipping out unnoticed, her speech should be bright and self-assured.

General McCreary

General McCreary
Name: General McCreary
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Brusque, bureaucratic, and unimpressed, General McCreary is investigating the Lucky Ducks after Thrushís double-cross. Deep voiced and slightly sinister.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Reassuring but sleazy) The Hand of God belongs somewhere safe, and where in the world would be safer than locked securely in our vault?"
Line 2:
"(Frustrated) I donít care that theyíre an elite special forces unit, dammit! Youíre supposed to be better!"
Line 3:
"(Serious) Listen, King, Iím only telling you this because we have history, but your girls are a stiff breeze away from duck soup."

Ms. Eve/Agent Honeycreeper

Ms. Eve/Agent Honeycreeper
Name: Ms. Eve/Agent Honeycreeper
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Kingfisherís secretary and right hand man, respectively. As Ms. Eve, she and Mockingbird have something of a flirtatious rapport, though she constantly pretends to be less than enthused by it, and nobody but Kingfisher, McCreary, and a handful of others have the security clearance to know that she operates on occasion as Honeycreeper. As Ms. Eve, she speaks with a pretty heavy New York accent, while as Honeycreeper she sounds standard business accent American.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Sarcastic and slightly flirtatious) I had two whole weeks without having to listen to you yammer at me all the time, doll, it was an honest-to-God dream."
Line 2:
"(Commanding/slightly condescending) Now, now, gentlemen, thereís no need to get all in a twist. This is a Bird-Watcher operation and Iíll be taking over from here on out."
Line 3:
"(Reassuring) Yeah, well next time Iíll let you get shot with me - and bogart all the painkillers after, you big baby."

Agent Sandpiper

Agent Sandpiper
Name: Agent Sandpiper
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
A brilliant and innovative technological mind, Sandpiper is a generally affable, if high-strung and private sort. She and Starling rub each other the wrong way and always have. A bit of a stereotypical ďnerdĒ voice - think slightly nasal and moderately monotone - Sandpiper is a bit freer with her slang than Starling though sheís still a fairly to the point speaker.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Sarcastic) Iíll use small words so you donít misunderstand - no touch, big boom."

"(Reluctant) Weíre not exactly the best of friends. What makes you think sheíll trust me?"
Line 3:
"(Excited) And with the new microfiber cable, weíve managed to reduce the overall footprint by 24%!"

Agent Nightingale/Marion Schmidt

Agent Nightingale/Marion Schmidt
Name: Agent Nightingale/Marion Schmidt
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Bright and peppy, Agent Nightingale is the less obnoxious counterpart to the James Bond caricature that is her partner, Agent Goldfinch. Sheís a bit of a bubbly speaker as Agent Nightingale, and when sheís speaking as Marion Schmidt she should have a slight German accent.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Chipper) Ladies! Itís been too long! Give me all the news from across the pond."
Line 2:
"(Amused) Donít mind Goldfinch - he gets fussy if he waits too long between martinis."
Line 3:
"(Sinister) I would recommend keeping both hands on the table. Itís awfully dark in here, easy to misjudge in the shadows and put a knife through one of them."

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Happy) Itís - itís you! I canít believe youíre really here!"

"(Cold/Bitter) Sheís the one who elected to turn her back rather than trust in her team, so, no, Mock, I donít believe I shall put any forgiveness on offer."
Line 3:
"(Tense/Commanding) Stay down! Theyíve got seeking spells on their artillery!"

Agent Thrush(?)/Midge Mitchell

Agent Thrush(?)/Midge Mitchell
Name: Agent Thrush(?)/Midge Mitchell
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Agent Thrush is highly intelligent and deeply private with a sharp with and steel in her spine. She lost her parents young and as such has some attachment issues, but sheís deeply loyal to those she considers to be her people. Perhaps a hint of an Eastern European accent though Thrush hasnít lived overseas - as it were - for many years. Soft and somewhat husky.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Resigned but amused) It would have been awfully foolish of the fox to invite the dogs with her while she ravages the henhouse."
Line 2:
"(Miserable and sincere) Iím - Iím sorry. It didnít - I never meant to betray you."
Line 3:
"(Desperate) You have to go! I canít explain now, there isnít time. Would you just trust me? Please?"

Agent Kingfisher

Agent Kingfisher
Name: Agent Kingfisher
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
The handler of this merry troupe, Kingfisher was once a big shot agent and was relegated to desk duty long before his prime due to a serious injury attained on the job. Heís a bit rough around the edges, can be a bit machiavellian, and is very attached to his team. Gruff but not to the point of hoarseness, Kingfisher ought to sound like he walked right out of an old movie.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"(Sarcastic) Right, of course, only four bullet wounds, my mistake."
Line 2:
"(Sincere and concerned) Nothing we can do except keep our eyes out and make sure she donít step too far off the path."
Line 3:
"(Quiet, harried, suspicious) You think theyíre listening to us here? Now?"

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• 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.
