Voice Actor Wanted 2007-11-24 07:50:29
Voice Acting "Genre" in the Audio Portal
If you are a voice actor who wants to advertise your services, do that here
Include the following when looking for Voice Actors
1 - A description of the voice types needed.
Example: "I need a voice actor who can sound like a teenage male, British accent." Try to be as precise as you can!
2 - Audition lines for interested voice actors to say in the character's voice. Doesn't nessecarily have to be from the actual script, it's just to make it easier for the VA's to know what they might be applying for.
3 - Method of contact. E-mail? PM?
4 - Include a deadline! You should list the date when you stop accepting submissions!
5 - Remember that VA's should be credited just like any other audio authors, and if not the actual voices used in the flash is on the portal, credit can be given by simply linking to the users page in "Audio credits".
With the addition of the Voice Acting genre in the Audio Portal, a very important step have been taken by Newgrounds to recognice the guys and girls who devote their time and lending their voice to the awesome flash-submissions that daily attempts to make it through the Portal.
There used to be a VA-club that served as a gatheringpoint for VA's, but it have become quite impopular and inactive and was frankly quite malplaced, so with the new VA-genre addition, we make a new attempt!
Since recording a human voice is a very difficult thing to do (depending on what level you're at, of course), this thread manifest itself in this forum because the technical help is closer to get here than in the flash/C&C forum. If you have any technical issues, feel free to read through the Audio Sticky once again, and if you can't find what you're looking for, present your specific issue by making a thread in this forum.
Audacity - free audio recording/editing studio.
Shure SM58 - If you want decent recording quality fairly cheap, this is a legendary durable vocal microphone that goes for pretty much everything. Around $100.
