Description:
Behind the Voice Actors brought into the production: LilRasha, Mippa
Final casting decisions (and final audition rubric) available at: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/threads-in-the-vayl

The first of an original fantasy audiodrama anthology series following the adventures of a pair of magical investigators, searching for cursed magical artifacts.

Think "Murder She Wrote" meets "The Witcher" meets "Doctor Who"

At the moment, I am looking for voice actors with an interest in a moderately long term voice acting job that we can build together. Dynamic performances, a willingness to try new things and to bring multiple voices/characters to the table is very valuable to this project.

"Threads of the Vayl" will be one of the flagship shows on Nerdsmith.org, a collaborative network of podcast, video, and other media creators.

This work is currently unpaid, but with the eventual opportunity for payment if the show develops a community of subscribers. As the showrunner (currently the only person responsible for writing, casting, directing, editing, and mixing the show), I will not get paid unless we all do.

NOTE: SOME MILD CURSING.

THE FIRST EPISODE OF THIS PROJECT WILL HAVE A TIGHT TWO WEEK TURNAROUND TIME ON RECORDINGS, PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR LINES IMMEDIATELY AFTER CASTING. CASTING WILL BE ANNOUNCED WITHIN THREE DAYS OF THE AUDITIONS DEADLINE.

Characteristics/Notes:
IF YOU ARE AUDITIONING FOR THE MAJOR ROLES, PLEASE CONSIDER THROWING OTHER VOICES IN HERE AS EXAMPLES! ACTORS WHO CAN PROVIDE MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER ARE IDEAL FOR THIS PROJECT!

Looking for a variety of voices and tones to round out the minor cast. These roles may be filled by actors who are cast in the major roles. No rules about accents or gender, just keeping in mind that this is a fantasy story, with some comedic and some noir influcences.

Extra roles Include misc crowd voices, shady fences, nobles, servants, and other common fantasy tropey characters.

Feel free to record multiple voices in your line takes. I'll be using this audition as a catch all for future characters as well!

EDITED LINE #2, but no one will be penalized for reading the old version.

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.
