Radiosonic Workshop Auditions [Sep. 21st, 2011|12:02 am]
Amateur Voice Acting :: The LJ Community

Radiosonic Workshop is currently producing a series of audios based on the BBC Webcast, Scream of the Shalka (written by Paul Cornell, starring Richard E. Grant, as the Doctor, Derek Jacobi as the Master, and Sophie Okonedo (Liz X) as the companion, Alison). It’s based heavily on the format established by our beloved Big Finish (4 x 25 minute episodes). The series will run to 7 episodes with a contained arc.

We’re looking to recruit actors to non-main characters, such as:
  • Various Vikings
  • Time Lord Jerks, all sizes
  • Relatively (aha, you’ll get that pun later) important people you have met before in canon, oooooh, mysterious!!
  • Kangaroo People from the Planet of Australia
  • Americans that sound like frigging Americans (No love here, Big Finish. Wtf was “Minuet in Hell”?)
  • Draconiansssssssss (be prepared to do that kind of a lot)
  • Cyberfolk (gender equality, guys)
  • GHOSTS!! How gooooooood is your unearthly ‘ooooooo’?
  • And Many More...

We not terribly bothered about actor gender, or accents unless we specifically mention these things – as long as you give a strong performance (or can say ‘ooo’ very fiercely and/or knowingly), we can work something out.

We have short dialogue sections for some of the aforementioned characters, taken from the finished scripts, for actors to audition with. We’d like actors to record these sections in the environment they would record the actual episodes, and with the equipment they would use.

More details and audition pieces in this post.


* We’ve decided to extend the call for main actors to October 7th. For more information, please see the post on our comm. In case you are intimidated by the stuff about production quality and time commitments therein (or above), PLEASE DON’T BE! Show us what you've got, and we'll work with you on sound quality and time. Those are factors to think about, but what we're looking for is a great performance. Don't let the fact that you don't currently have a foam-lined podfic bunker lying around keep you down/stop you auditioning! The techy bits you’ll be expected to deal with are pie-easy once you get the hang of them, we swear. We save the true descent into hell for the editors...

* Please consider applying here for production positions: we still have openings for a Head of SFX, more SFX team members, and another director. Doing challenging SFX for a downloadable series shows a variety of skills. Fannish as it may seem, this could be the makings of a good portfolio example and recommendation for people looking to work in related fields. We’re currently well-staffed with editors and music people, but more help is, of course, always appreciated.

Is this community alive? And if so is anyone looking for a voice actress? I've recently gotten into fandubs and would really like the participate in more. I would put up samples of my voice work, but...yeah, I don't even know if this comm is working. Hope I get a reply or something soon. ^^'

FanFiction Readers [May. 30th, 2009|07:10 pm]
Amateur Voice Acting :: The LJ Community

[mood |accomplished]

I am a new member and even though this place has been inactive for a long time I am hoping that this will get people active again.

My friend

and I have decided to start a group which will involve voice actors. Not singing, acting (but singing may sometimes come up).


There is the youtube page. The audition video isn't up yet but once it is please audition if you are a VA. If you know people who are VA's tell them about this. 

We are a Voice Acting Community (VAC) that reads fanfiction. An author will send us a fanfiction then we are to read it and post it on youtube. I love to read fanfiction but sometimes they get a little to long and wordy. I would rather have someone read to me, but that option isn't always available. When I read fanfiction, I love to change my voice to portray the different characters. Then it came to me, why can't we organize a group of people to read fanfictions? Well nothing was stopping me so I decided to start one. This is basically like any other dubbing project (like dubbing an anime, movie, etc) but is more like a book on tape, except with more than one person reading and better actors.

VAU re-launch [Jan. 12th, 2009|09:58 pm]
Amateur Voice Acting :: The LJ Community

I hope it's OK to post this here:

I just wanted to let you know that voiceacting.co.uk, has relaunched! The new site features a production directory where you can submit your finished projects. Visitors can then search the site for projects of interest, and can filter them by type.

There's also an option to have a resume at:
http://my.voiceacting.co.uk/resume/yourusername . Here's mine I've not finished it but it gives you an idea. Resumes are searchable by gender, voice type, accent etc so you can search for those ideal voice actors. Those can be activated in your profile.

There's also a wealth of tutorials, interviews and articles.  There's also a forum and submission option if you want to get your content up!

The site isn't just for UK VAs/ Producers, everyone is welcome, the site is intended to be a hub for the voice acting community. The site in this form has been going a while now so it's full of content, such as interviews with pro VAs, reviews, links, news and tutorials. The site is well indexed in google so submitting should help get your projects out there.

 I now have interviews with Cristina Vee and Harabek on there plus all my old interviews with Kari Wahlgren, Monica Rial etc.

If you have experience voice acting, animating, etc and think you would make a good review candidate let me know!

Thanks ^

( Also since a few people asked over IM I have no been a staff member of the VAA for some time, this is an independent project ^_^)

Feedback is welcome, Thank you everyone!

Podcast Needs Voices [Dec. 30th, 2008|10:46 pm]
Amateur Voice Acting :: The LJ Community

The rules say you can post audition/casting calls, so I'm going with that. If I goofed, I'm sorry.

The Digital Bookcase provides full cast audio versions of well loved fan fiction from a variety of fandoms.

There are several open production positions that need to be filled, mostly male voices; so if you're interested stop by the sign-up post and leave a comment.

Hello! I'm a new member. I adore Tom Kenny, Crispin Freeman, and Steve Blum and aspire more than anything to be like 'em.

It doesn't seem like anyone's posted here in a while o_o;; Anyways, hope to see more of this place in the future.
