Newgrounds OC Voice Acting Contest

New Topic Respond to this Topic

Back in May we started a competition with the idea of creating a new newgrounds character base and animation. So far we have held a writing competition in which @Unabated won with their story Discount Detectives: Dicked Twice.


We then moved on to an art competition to try and bring on some artists or at the very least some concept art for the animator. We had a ton of great turn outs which you can view on my playlist here, but in the end @Unabated decided that @MrShmoods had the right vision with the following piece.



There were also a lot of honorable mentions there so I highly recommend checking out the playlist mentioned above.


Now we move on to the next steps. The voice acting and theme song sections! Find the theme song section here. If you're also a music creator or want to team up with a music creator feel free to organize that. You can include voice acting in your theme song or music in their voice acting. etc...


Rules:


Pick at the minimum 2 characters from the script and give us some of their lines. Feel free to do more characters and feel free to take some creative liberty with the script or go off the script a little bit as long as you stay in character.


Just check out the story, the concept art, and what the artist was feeling for the concept art and show us what you think they should sound like.


Just to make it clear let us know what characters you are voicing at what time in some manner, whether you speak it in the submission or add it in the audio description.


Submit to the audio portal and link here by the deadline.


Deadline:


11/4/19 - Midnight EST


Prizes:


1st Place (male voice): Supporter Status, you get to join the team of judges for the next stages of the competition. Your audio will be used in the animation or you will have the chance to create something new for the animation when the time comes.


2nd Place (male voice): Supporter Status


3rd Place (male voice): Supporter Status


1st Place (female voice): Supporter Status, you get to join the team of judges for the next stages of the competition. Your audio will be used in the animation or you will have the chance to create something new for the animation when the time comes.


2nd Place (female voice): Supporter Status


3rd Place (female voice): Supporter Status


Other:


Whether your male, female, gender neutral, or something else please feel free to attempt either male or female voices. If you can do both then perhaps you'll be picked as the best for both!


Just because you aren't chosen to be the 1st place doesn't mean that you might not get asked to help out with the final product. Perhaps something will fall through or there are different opportunities throughout the process where different audio would be desired.


At the end of the day @Unabated and @MrShmoods have the final say. This is more about community building and coming together to make something original.

Please read the thread. This is not what I asked for. I asked for you to read the script, check out the concept art, and do voices for two of the characters.

This is a competition. To compete read the script, check out the concept art, and submit a piece of voice acting to the audio portal of two of the characters.


Please read the the opening post.

Results:


1st Place: @Glass-of-Awesome



Winner of a supporter status, moves on with the team to help judge the next portion of the competition and get's voice used in animation.


2nd Place: @Bilmo 



Winner of a supporter status and get's voice used in animation.


3rd Place: @LuckOdaStars



Winner of a supporter status and get's voice used in animation.


----------


Comments from the judges:


"@Glass-of-Awesome crushed it as the Janitor and also did a pretty good Chief Guy."

"@Glass-of-Awesome crushed it all around so he deserves the win. (Janitor, Ed Jackson)"


"Bilmo nailed the Curator and a decent Harold."


"@LuckOdaStars did a fantastic Guy and Harold."


"@downundacheez did a good Stephanie."


"@MasterXelcas would be a good child and Narrator."


----------


Just because you weren't chosen to be in the top 3, doesn't mean that you might not get asked to help out with the final product. Perhaps something will fall through or there are different opportunities throughout the process where different audio and voices would be desired/need filled in.


----------


The next steps will be a competition for an animated intro to the story using the winning theme song, some voices from the voice actors, and concept art that was produced to help the animators envision the characters. I'll be at the drawing board there, but I'm going to attempt to put some money down for the winner of that competition.
