Motion Comic Voice Audition Form

Introduction

Hello professional or aspiring voice actor! This is your chance to audition for roles in the motion comic treatment of Erfworld Book 1. A listing of parts, guidelines, and a submission form are below. See the video on the Kickstarter page for more information about the project.

Deadline

The deadline for submitting your audition files is midnight Eastern on Friday, April 20.

Payment

Those we cast for the project will receive a minimum of $50 and screen credit for their parts, even small single-line parts. Larger parts will pay $50 for the first studio hour and $25 for each additional studio hour. You must be able to record your parts on your own equipment and submit them to us electronically. A contract with express terms will be provided to those we cast. You will not receive any money for auditioning.

Parts

Your interpretation of the character is up to you, and should be based on a good understanding of the story and your character's part in it. If you have questions about a character's motivation or personality type you can submit them to erfworldaudio@gmail.com.

  • Page 15: Dude. It’s July. Ah. Like the “marshmallows” in Lucky Charms…I never realized they’re crunchy because they’re stale. Okay, “marbits.” But…When you leave out a box and those go stale, they get soft. What is that?
  • Page 16: You know… Over the years, Parson’s had a lot of big ideas. But this is the first one I’ve ever seen him follow through on.
  • Page 21: Woo! Yes! Aw, Man. I knew it.
  • Page 45: Your lackey may not enter, Lord. I am sorry, Lord.
  • Page 62: Prepared to make our stand, Highness.
  • Page 140: Quiet. And yes it is. We’ll have four more Thinkamancers here in a few minutes. No charge.
  • NOT ONLINE: If he can come here, he may be able to lead others here.

  • Page 7: Aye, Commander.
  • Page 16: And you run some amazing games, Parson. But I don’t know if it’s healthy. It’s such a huge escape for you.
  • Pages 88-89: Hello! Thank you for calling Charlescomm, your battlespace solutions provider. Your mind is important to us, and it may be monitored for quality assurance purposes. May I have your name, rank, and side, please? Thank you, Lord Hamster. Please hold for Charlie.
  • Page 112: Tunneler! Stand and be ended!
  • NOT ONLINE: A “Hippiemancer Warlord.” Or the Predictamancers withheld that from us. An army, perhaps. Never!

Basic guidelines:

  • Clean, professional recording. A pop shield is a must (you can make your own, if need be). This also means no background noises, computer hums, hissing, or random sirens, dogs, babies or gunshots.
  • No mispronounced or flubbed words. During the Kickstarter auditions of page 34, we had some people who mispronounced Signamancy (SY - na - man - see). If you have any questions regarding a pronunciation, please email erfworldaudio@gmail.com
  • Submit separate auditions in separate files. For example, if you are auditioning for Sizemore and Caesar, you must submit two separate files.
  • At the beginning of your sound file, please state your name and what part you are auditioning for (ex: This is Hugh Jass, auditioning for the part of Parson Gotti).
  • All files must have the following name format: CHARACTERNAME_YOURNAME.mp3. Example: PARSONGOTTI_HUGHJASS.mp3
  • All files must be in .mp3 format. See below for a list of free/inexpensive recording/editing software, all of which can be used to export a file into this format. As we are not experts in each program, please do not email us asking for support with any of the programs.

List of audio editing software we recommend:

Audacity (free)
Goldwave (generous free trial period)
MixCraft 5 (free trial)
Cubase (30 day trial)
