Voice Acting Contest -1- 2009-02-05 09:01:42


After I got some advice from Ruckio, the audio mod DUM DUM DUM, I decided to try to start out a monthly VOICE ACTING contest. This contest is similiar to the MAC, which started the same way this one is. If the first contest goes well, then I will contact Tom and ask for NG to sponsor the contest so we can have prizes such as store credit and money.

In each of these VA contests, I will give you different types of challenges. *1 challenge each contest* For this challenge, I will give you a starter line to voice act your own story, starting with the line I gave you or ending with it. I will also throw in different twists and turns in future contests like, "only use a mouse voice," or, "throw in at least 6 sound effect," E.T.C.

___RULES FOR THIS CONTEST___

Use this line at the end or beginning of a story that you make up.

"And thats why I dont have my homework"

To strengthen your chances of winning, use a good quality mic, put in multiple voices OF YOUR OWN, and make your story creative. Judges will be me and whoever else would like to be a judge. If you would like to be a judge for this first voice acting contest, please contact me on NG.

__The following is NOT allowed___
Voice enahncer programs such as robot, mouse, e.t.c. You may use a quality enhancer program or a simple Male, Female voice enhancer since that only shortens white noise and does not alter your voice. It is obvious when a voice enhancer is used and if I catch one in your song ill remove you from the contest.

Only you may voice act. Do not get any help from other voice actors.

Use your own original story. If you can not think of anything, then you may voice act another story here on NG, but your chances of winning will be shortened... unless it is really good voice acting since the contest is about the voice and not the story.

So just to clear things up, there are no prizes currently since this is the first Voice Acting contest and I am just a poor boy who lives in a cardboard box so I can not pay you with my own money. remember, the contest is to voice act a story with multiple charecters using the line below in the begginning or ending of your story.

"And that's why I didn't do my homework"

I will be participating in this contest BTW but will not be elgible to win since I am a judge lol. :3 I hope this contest goes somewhere! If it does, Tom should sponsor this and offer store credit for 1st through 3rd place. GOOD LUCK! And let the microphone be with you.

Wow that last line was really gay.

P.S. if you would like to offer prizes for this contest, then feel free to do so! Contact me on NG.

*Bumped so that it doesn't get lost in the hinterlands of the audio forum

I think this would be a great idea, but somehow you have to spread the word about this contest. Send a few PMs to voice actors linking to this thread. Make it clear that the purpose of this is to establish later contests sponsored by NG. Even a few participants would be helpful.

It will be a shame if this isn't successful though.

You made a lil' mistake in your post. Which line should be used?
"And thats why I dont have my homework"
or
"And that's why I didn't do my homework" ?

Thanks.

PS: I won't participate, I'm saying this so you can fix it and other people will understand.

PS2: Ha it's Rucklo not Ruckio.

Good idea. I will make sure to contact as many voice actors as I can to get more participants. Thanks.

Well, since I never knew if this was going to make it through, I never posted a deadline. I needed to know how many people were entering first.

I need to wait for a little bit before I post the final deadline... but right now I'm thinking the 5th of March.

HELL YES YOU CAN. I already know about you and you are an experienced one... but please, if you ask to be a judge say WHY so I can know if you have experience or not and are mature enough to be one.

Response to Voice Acting Contest -1- 2009-02-05 18:11:00


I guess i'll be awesome, and a great experience for flash artists that are looking for voice actors!

LET TOMAMOTO BE A JUDGE!!!!!

Hell, I'm in. This could be a great way to get talent out there that has been previously undiscovered.

Isn't it the same for all contests?

Ummm....

For reasons I do not know I was banned from the audio portal...

How will I submit things?

And how can I get un-banned?

Response to Voice Acting Contest -1- 2009-02-05 20:25:20


Any advice on buying a mic?

Make another account, submit using that one. Don't use it for forum posts with the exception of this contest, posting using alt accounts is against the rules, last time I checked.

Well then Id rather get them to clear the ban. If I break the rules, then my whole account will be deleted...

Hmm... if you were banned and you swear it was a mis-understanding, then send a PM to

http://darkside555.newgrounds.com/
http://bad-man-incorporated.newgrounds.c om/
http://ragevi.newgrounds.com/
http://rig.newgrounds.com/
http://rucklo.newgrounds.com/
or
http://sbb.newgrounds.com/

these guys are audio moderators and will most likely respond to your questions in the best way they can. If you still can not submit things to the audio portal, send you .MP3 to me and I will judge it myself. Don't risk making an alt account because if Wade finds out he will send a hellish army of PERMANENT BAN up your ass... and there is nothing worse than that.

Well if you want a good cheap mic... then go to google and type in PODCASTING MICs. Some really nice ones should pop up. Some are really expensive but some really nice ones are under 250$. If you dont want to buy a mic, go to your school and ask the media if they have a mic you can borrow for a little while. Or, just look for a MAC LEOPARD computer and record it there using Garageband.

Sounds like fun! I'd love to enter. When I make my file, where do i send it?

Do you want a script? Should I improv? Do you just want me to have a voice chat and I audit my stuff?

Put it on NG and put the link to your song in this thread, depends on how bad or good you are, no, elephants.

Response to Voice Acting Contest -1- 2009-02-05 23:42:51


Alright since my ban might not be lifted is there any other way I can make an entry? Like Sheezyart...

Well?

Response to Voice Acting Contest -1- 2009-02-06 00:02:44


Well, I guess this is my first post here in the boards... at all, however, I saw this thread, and knew I had to post in it. I've always been interested in doing something along these lines, and I wished to participate. I have not done any voice acting before, but was one of the finalists back several years ago when they were trying to replace the Black Mage's voice in the official 8-bit theater flashes.

Last I checked, the deadline was aimed at the 5th of March. Is this still where the deadline will be placed. It should give me enough time to get something in...

Same here. I've been interested, but never did this sort of thing before. This sounds fun to try out. Is there any recommended program to use for submitting voice clips?

When is the deadline? I'd like to enter.

Listen to my Demo and PM me if you want me to voice act for you, I'd be happy to help.
