You're a real eager beaver!!!!

That's what he said.

I'm literally almost literally finished... literally.

Also to add to the Neverwinter post, I'm on the Beholder Shard and the name is JaShinYa as well!

Like upside down? So the winners will be losers, and losers will be winners. Doesn't matter for me. I'll probably end up in the middle either way.

I like this idea. Maybe then I'll have a chance at winning!

I think not. You'd end somewhere at the bottom (never thought I'd say this as a compliment... bottom).

Oh stop it, you.
And it's worth mentioning that the concept behind yours was hilarious, and the piece well executed.

It'll all be revealed soon, so I can wait!

Let me ask you guys... if, hypothetically, I have the scoring done, but was planning a special presentation that is taking longer than expected to get done for various reasons, would you rather me just say fuck it and give out the scores now, or wait until the presentation is done?

Hypothetically speaking.... *ahem*

It depends on how long we'd be waiting.

I don't mind waiting an extra day or two, but if it'll take more than, say, a week, I'd prefer the scores. xD

...I'd say wait until the presentation is done. It'd be better if it's something festive or whatever. Nicer to the winners. Probably more fun for everyone. Early results would be nice for now, but you might regret it later.

So long as it will only take another day or two, I'm content! But much longer and it could be an issue.
Ultimately though I would be willing to wait and see who won.
Can't wait to see how you present!

Just go with what your heart tells you, and since your feeling gravitate towards a bigger presentation, go for it. I fear VO may not get as much exposure as other mediums on Newgrounds, so if you got something fun planned, I'd rather you go balls to the wall and make it memorable thought it takes extra time, and don't ask for our permission next time =) Just do it!

Also, if you're looking for more podcasters for the NWO MMO, I'm up for it. I actually still play a lot of NWN2 on an RP server and such and am playing the NWO beta. I've been playing MMO's since Asheron's Call as a wee little tike, so I have a good amount of experience with them and have played almost every single one...if you need another opinionated fellah still with an excellent sense of humor =)

Now that everyone's willing to wait for it, I'm afraid it's going to be anti-climactic. lol. But I figure it might be more fun and intrigue more people to listen to the entries, etc...

Even if it's not too amazing or flashy, it really can be hard for voice actors to gain exposure.
This way, our work pays off a little more. And who knows? Maybe we'll get a few more commissions!
I've personally gotten a few just because of that submission, and it's been great.
This contest is my new best friend.

It depends on the people I've contacted to help. If I don't get it within a couple of days, then I'll attempt it myself. If I can't then I'll just announce it normally. I won't let it go for too long.

Sometimes, it just requires patience. You can still try to audition for roles here on this forum, I believe. There are always animators out there looking for voice actors to aid them, and they might not always look at your profile to find you.

Yeah, don't try to overload yourself if it does prove to be too much. It's always all right. Presentation or not, we will appreciate the thought. At least, I will. XD

People dont give a shizz about my entry. I just talk to animators and force them to accept me as a voice actor in their animation.

And it works.

1. Look for competitions. These are usually on shorter schedules, and they need someone fast. Just start offering yourself up via PM, and you're bound to get a few projects. Plus they're more likely to deliver.

2. Watch for animators with a lot of potential, but who have yet to make their names here. Shoot them a PM with a compliment, and offer yourself up as a voice actor in case they ever need one.

3. Check the Voice Actor Wanted thread once in awhile, and offer your voice up for... Well, pretty much everything. It's useful.

I haven't been in a lot of submissions, but I also hadn't been very active in voice acting until recently. I was about to start on my own cartoons, since I had an animator to work with. My writing, voice acting, and general audio; his animation. But he got bummed by a rejected college audition, so he's quit animating and drawing for a few months.
Now I'm looking for busy work to get my name out there.

Though my girlfriend is an amazing artist. Now I just have to force her to animate for me.

I voice act because I'm insecure about my weight.
