THE VOICE ACTING PROCESS:
Auditions for Voice Acting roles should be posted in the APPROPRIATE RACE OR UNIQUE AUDITION THREADS. Try to pick what you feel you are most suited for accent wise and give it a go! Try to make sure you have a good level of audio quality when recording, but we are looking for accents and acting ability at this stage. There are sample lines available in the first post of each audition thread. All races are currently open. You will be contacted by PM if you are selected with more instructions. We recommend that you have your tesrenewal account linked to your email so that you will be easily notified. A recording guide can be found here for tips and tricks as well as microphone and software recommendations.
FOR ASSIGNED VOICE ACTORS ONLY:
- Once you are selected, please download your scripts from this sheet HERE and then use the merge script program. This is absolutely mandatory and it will save you a lot of work and keep our audio file space requirements reasonable.
- Then submit a sample of 3-4 recorded lines on this page (upload via dropbox or other hosting service) for review AND message Smitehammer so someone actually looks at it, before tackling all of your lines. At this stage we are looking at audio quality so follow the guide here and you will most likely be approved. Recording two sets of your lines, one at a normal talking volume level line and a second with reduced volume for your combat (loud) lines is what we like to receive. Please submit all recordings as raw/un-altered as per our recording guide as we will be doing all mixing for consistency.
- Once you get approval of your sample, record all of your lines and then link them on this page for final tweaking and submission along with your merged script so we have something for the filecutter minions to work off of. Please record your lines in the order they appear on the script so it is easy for us to cut up. If you have any questions about pronounciation feel free to post in this thread and Smitehammer will get back to you shortly. If you have questions about your lines feel free to PM Taerkalith or post on the bottom of this thread.
NOTE: If you are having trouble opening the excel files, try changing your file extension from .xls to .xlsx. This seems to fix the problem for some people.
