Description:
Currently I'm working on my second WoW machinima. They are completely unrelated to each other, though. The first one can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1piMMhzpetc
It was done two years ago and I'd say it's "meh" compared to what I am able to achieve now.

I've been holding off this one until now, it's a story I'm passionate about :) For those who know about Warcraft will probably be familiar with it. It's about Arthas' journey, told in the human campaign in Warcraft III. Plus, I'll be adding stuff from the book also: Arthas - Rise of the Wit-- Er... Lich King! That's why almost everyone is recast. The film is in early stages, but in order to perfect my script do I need to have the voices ready: it's easier to write for characters if I've them.


Apparently some people close the auditions before the deadline. I will not.

Yes, yes... I've closed two characters already - but they're exceptions. One (Jaina) was already cast before I started the project, so it brings it down to one. I mostly added Jaina to tell you Wc3 fans that she's in it ;)

Feedback will also be given to those who ask for it towards the end. That is all! :)

(unfocused, witnessed a corpse... "explode")"

"This plague of the undead—nothing like this has ever been seen before. It’s not just another battle, or another war—it’s something much bigger and darker than that. So, maybe he’s right. Maybe he does know what will happen."

  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.
