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 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

Casting several characters for season two a 6 episode fiction podcast, The Oasis Transmissions.

The story revolves around a human colony on another world, and plays out over a serious of messages from a multitude of different characters. For context, you can listen to prior episodes at the following link (or on any major podcast platform): https://the-oasis-transmissions.simplecast.com

NOTE: Each part is composed of monologues that will vary in length depending on the character. It will be critical that the voices sound natural. Iím looking for VA who can deliver an acting performance so these sound like real people talking. A full script will be provided, but I'm also looking to collaborate with my voice actors to ensure the character voice and tone feels natural.

I will record and edit in August and have the project completed by mid Sept.

Line 1:
"Thatís when I saw it. One of them. It looked almost human, but very tall and very thin. Its skin was grey and its eyes were yellow. You know like a lizardís? It stood between the trunks, no more than ten feet away. It didnít approach me, and I didnít run away. It looked at me. And I looked back."
Line 2:

Line 3:
"They have watched you for a long timeóobserved you from the shadows of the wood. They do not fear you, and would not hesitate to meet in battle. They assured me their numbers are countless. More than the trees."

HELP
  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.
