Tips for auditioning:
  • Try to make your recording as clean as possible to demonstrate the audio quality you can produce. If you don't have access to better equipment while auditioning, mention this and send a high-quality sample of earlier work.
  • Experiment a bit with the distance between you and the microphone you're using. Mics are different, but they'll all distort and clip if you're too close to them.
  • The preferred format is 128kbps OGG or 160 kbps MP3.

Very cool, so who should I e-mail an audition too? Are the uncast roles on the voice_scripts page all still open?

As a pre-auditiony thing, aSteven Seagal parody video my friends made a couple years back I starred in, I'm the main guy in that. We looped all the audio in later, so it's essentially voice acting.

Me or pcj or olzen. Or all of us at once :D

Yeah. There are a few roles that are still in the process of being confirmed and those are still shown as open, but new auditions are welcome for those as well.

For the record, as this forum only has a form for sending e-mails to users, my e-mail address is frederikolsen.dfl at gmail.com. I'm gonna let mjomble and pcj post their addresses themselves.

I'm looking forward to hearing your auditions :)

Ah, right. Usually I've gotten links to files uploaded to file sharing sites and such.
But mine's mjomble at gmail dot com.
