If you're interested, please record the audition lines listed for the part(s) you might want and email me the sound files at [email protected] Ideally, I'd like to get all auditions by Sept. 20, but if you need more time just let me know.
Main characters needed, with audition lines:
These characters will have 30-50 lines each.
Ryan Kligsen. Male, 30s. This is the mercenary main character. A hard-boiled, hard-ass hero type, possibly Western-inspired. Could go a lot of different ways with this character.
"Those who sell bootleg fuel should be prepared to take on the local law. If he can't do that, Robbie deserves what's coming."
"You do wrong by her, there *will* be trouble."
Zolthanon. (CLOSED) Male. A protoss high templar. This voice will be heavily altered on my end. For a sample of what protoss voices sound like, see
"Your lives will end, perhaps today, but the memory of a warrior's glory is eternal. Join me there, in eternity!"
"You may wish to guard your thoughts."
Justin Escalio. Male, 30s or 40s. The well-spoken, scholarly leader of the cult, who offers Kligsen his job. Turns out to be evil.
"Hadn't you better save these for later, when the Dominion catches up with you? You know they'll come hunting for you now... cop killer."
"I need a new commander for the military arm of a large organization. According to your former War Pig comrades, you're a man with skills and few scruples."
Minor characters needed:
Colonial marshal. Male. A corrupt local cop who loses in a showdown with Kligsen. Should have a Southern or Texas accent.
"I do what I want with what's mine. Lorie, for example. Come with me, darlin'."
Lorie. 20s or 30s, female. An on-and-off girlfriend of Kligsen killed by the marshal. Could have a Southern accent, or not.
"He's my brother, Ryan. You know he can't stand up against the marshal."
I am going to do some voices tonight. As a Texan I might be able to pull off the male southern thing :P. Then again supposedly my accent only comes out when I am drunk, lol.
One thing I have to mention is your dialogue is not exactly conducive to how people form sentences in the south. I'll do my best with the lines as written but I am also going send "ad-libbed versions".
for example, in the south, the following would go:
"Those who sell bootleg fuel should be ready to take on the local law. If he can't do that, (pause) well, then Robbie deserves what's comin'."
That's a good point about the dialog. I hope I did better in that regard with the marshal's lines. Kligsen wasn't initially intended to be southern; I originally wrote the part with myself in mind, then realized my voice sucks.
It's hard to think about how things might actually be spoken while you're writing it. I had modified the phrasing of one of the lines as well, just because the line sounded like it was supposed to inspire another individual and the break that it had in it kind of messed that up for me when I was doing it.
Professional actors do that sort of improvising all the time, so of course I don't see it as a problem.
The part of Zolthanon has been cast, but I'm still taking auditions for the others. I meant to keep all the parts open until the 20th, but the successful audition for Zolthanon was amazing, and the guy (Ganthir) agreed to do all the sound editing for the part. How could I turn that down?
Haha, could you post some recording sample when you're done ? To have a glimpse of what your campaign could look like would be fun.
And if you need some UED guy with french accent, PM me, I've got some semi-professional recording stuff.
A sample video, you mean? The opening cinematic is done except for the voice, but I'm trying to keep things under wraps until they're really polished.
Also, in case it helps potential VAs come up with their idea of the character...
I've decided that Kligsen will be a survivor of the UED mission from Brood War who is in hiding on Mar Sara, trying to keep his origins secret. This means I'm less inclined to give the character a Southern accent.
