liftgames brought it to my attention that September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day and suggested NG have an event around it.
So this is a bit spur of the moment, but I think we can pull something together.
I'm copying a bunch of rules from the current Voice Acting Competition, which voice actors should also participate in!
- Record an original skit that is written by yourself or a fellow NGer (credit them in your comments)
- Your recording needs to be a minimum of 10 and max of 60 seconds.
- Your skit must be submitted to the Newgrounds Audio Portal
- You must use your own voice, you may try to sound like another character from another story.
- You can use pre-made background sounds and music for atmosphere in your recording.
- You can use any microphone of your liking.
- You CAN NOT use copyrighted music.
- You CAN NOT use recordings of another persons voice.
- You CAN NOT submit past the deadline.
The deadline for voices is September 3rd. Please only enter if you are serious about voice acting!
After submitting to the Audio Portal, post a link to your file in this thread!
Flash Artists are then encouraged to browse the entry thread and animate their favorite. On September 19th (short notice I know but we all work well under pressure) everyone can post their entries and I might even make that oft-requested PIRATE COLLECTION!
The best Flash submissions will split prizes amongst the Voice Actor and Artist (if a writer is involved, he will split earnings with the voice actor).
1st Place: $150 CASH
2nd Place: $100 CASH
3rd Place: $50 CASH
If no one makes any half-decent Flash, cash prizes will go directly to the best audio submissions.
This is a great opportunity for some fresh new talent to show us their stuff!
Flash artists: Watch this thread for submission links.
Audio artists: If you aren't getting approved into the system, notify us here.
