Description:
Another World Productions is an audio production group who's aim is to produce "fan" and original content audio drama/radio plays, animated audio comics, audio books, short stories and ongoing serials.

We are building a safe and welcoming community of actors, audio engineers, writers and producers who are just starting out in the industry or taking part as a pass time for fun. Our senior staff come from a background in radio presenting/production, social media music performance and production and film scripting. We have unfortunately seem a lot of snobbery and judgement against those hobbyists and novice artists and we want to offer a community with a level playing field where we can talk, share ideas and produce content. At the moment, none of our projects are paid but as we produce more original content that may change in the future.

We are currently working on a full cast fan audio drama series of Doctor Who novel adaptations and original stories which, it is planned, will be a long term on going series and the first released project of our group.

All parts are unpaid and production of this project is second to full time day jobs.

We had previously posted a casting call for The "Regeneration" Doctor and The Daleks, however the person cast for The Daleks is no longer responding, therefore, we must recast this part.

Regarding the parts below, The Daleks will be an occasionally recurring part and Lilly Ward will be one of our Doctor's two full time companions (the other has already been cast) so if you are auditioning for these parts, you must be prepared to make the commitment needed.

All other parts are for episode 1 only. More casting calls will be added as writing progresses on each episode.

We are looking to have these parts cast as soon as possible. I have listed this casting call on other voice actor sites, our social media (Facebook, Discord etc) and various other social media voice acting groups.

- Please leave 10-15 seconds silence at the start of the recording. This is important.
- Introduce yourself and the part you are reading the lines for

***As BTVA is having trouble uploading some MP3s, you can also submit your audition by email;

- Name your files as follows:

"DWS1E1 - Your Name - Part You Auditioned For"

- Email your auditions to ouroboroswolfe@gmail.com with the subject line - "DW Audition S1E1 - BTVA - Your Name"

- Please include your name and a little about your voice acting experience (if any)

Lilly Ward (The Doctor’s companion)



NO
IMAGE
Name: Lilly Ward (The Doctor’s companion)
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
A student of Robotics and AI, currently just started working as a Coffee Barista during her gap year in the year 2525. A slim young woman with shoulder length bobbed dark hair, a pale complexion and “cat like” eyes (looks like Aubrey Plaza). She originally comes from the planet New London, a human colony in the Luna Proxima sector.

Lilly is strong willed, confident and very sure of herself, sometimes this overconfidence can lead to her biting off more than she can chew. She can become bored and distracted easily and is always looking for new challenges, often not paying heed to advice and experience which results in her frequently getting herself into dangerous situations, frustrating the Doctor. She has a very inquisitive mind and loves the exploration and excitement of travelling in the TARDIS. She is very protective of those close to her and fiercely loyal. She is very intelligent and has a natural aptitude for technology and, as such, is fascinated by the TARDIS but also very wary and untrusting of her sentience.

A British accent is preferred for this role, but it is not essential if the right "fit" puts in an audition.

Lilly Ward will not appear until episode 2, however we wanted to cast this role early to allow the actress to familiarize herself with the role and the community and talk about the long term plans for the character.

Line 2:
"Ermmm… no… thanks all the same. I just recognized you as the vidscreens play that soap and a couple of old ladies mentioned you and how they would like to take you home. More information than I wanted to hear, but to each their own."
Line 3:
"*Laughs*
That’s the spirit, it’s never good to take yourself too seriously…. wait.. Oh.. you meant me didn’t you?"

Texas/Southern accent. An old school outlaw from a bygone age with a long history of crimes. A large and intimidating man in his late 50s to early 60s. He has poor hygiene is foul smelling and foul tempered. He has an itchy trigger finger and a bad reputation. Not a smart man, but smart enough to know that he can use brute force and fear tactics to get what he wants. Doesn’t tend to keep company often unless the job is too large for one person as he does not have the personality to cooperate well with others.

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.
