Seeking: Sound Design Editor for Audio Drama

“Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services” is an ongoing modern fantasy audio drama entering its second season. The project would be for sound design for 13 episodes through the second season (January 2019-August 2019) and 13 episodes in the third season (January 2020-August 2020). Each episode is about 15-30 minutes in length.

Since the first season has already been produced, I would like to work with an editor who can match and improve upon the tone/style of the story to date.

Editing expectations are as follows:
– Align pre-edited dialogue/voice recordings (sound clips from actors will be pre-edited by producer for best takes) with script.
– Add intro/outro recordings with provided theme music.
– Sound effects as noted in scripts.
– Music to fit tone of scenes (editor to work with producer to select music styles).
– Submit to producer in .wav format or Audacity project files for feedback and revisions.

Budget: $100-$150 per 15-30min episode, additional hours for revisions will be billed $30 per hour. Wages can also be discussed upon selection.

For consideration, please submit a resume and sample work, as well as a short description of how you might improve the sound design of the show to kalilastormfire@gmail.com. I encourage those with diverse and nontraditional experience to apply.

For an example clip, please listen to the following short episode:

Actors may audition for multiple roles. In addition, actors may be cast for roles not listed here. All positions are paid.

To audition, please email mp3s of 1 to 3 takes of a character’s sides to godsheadincidental@gmail.com. Please include “audition” in the subject line and note in the body of the message which role(s) you are auditioning for, as well as whether you would be recording locally or remotely. If you intend to record remotely, please use the recording setup that you would use for the episodes themselves.

Casting Call: Hit the Bricks

AUDITIONS

Hit the Bricks is looking for voice actors to join us on our journey to Oz. Here are some details about working with us:

Right now we are looking for actors who may be interested in joining the series if crowdfunding should prove successful and we are looking into securing parts so that we may record a teaser or trailer for that crowdfunding campaign.
The series will have a large cast, though no more than half a dozen characters at a time may appear in a single episode, usually.
Please note all parts are paid, though the fee for the trailer will be smaller than the rest of the series.

You must be over 18-years-old, and non-union to audition
. Many roles will be open to any gender identity or race, but some will be written with specific identities in mind (in particular, people of color and people outside the gender binary). As such, we have fields that ask about those identities, but you can put that you prefer not to say if it makes you uncomfortable.
If you live in a major city, such as Los Angeles or New York, we may be able to assist you with recording if you land a role but for the most part, we expect to hire remote actors with their own recording set up. Your audition should be representative of the highest quality you can achieve on your own.

Please send your audition and the completed fields to hitthebrickspod@gmail.com, subject: (YOUR NAME) Hit The Bricks Audition. It is 100% okay if you have no prior experience in audio dramas.

Telling someone the truth is never easy, especially when it’s your mom. Paul has lived with his mom his entire life.

His mom, Gina Mi-sook Kim, who immigrated to the United States, can only speak Korean.
MOONFACE is a serialized audio dramedy that tells the story of two people who have known each other their entire lives but have never had an honest conversation with one another. As Paul starts to learn Korean to finally express who he really is to his mother, he realizes that he isn’t the only one who has been holding something back.
AUDITION NOTES: 
If you have your own recording equipment, you can send your audio audition to moonfacepodcast@gmail.com. We will also be holding auditions in person in Los Feliz on Saturday, September 15 if you do not have any recording/audio equipment.
Here are the roles we are auditioning for:
Paul — A 27-year-old second-generation Korean American who is gay and out to his friends, but closeted while living at home with his mom. He’s an aspiring music producer but helps pay the bills by tutoring and serving at a restaurant.
Gina  — Paul’s mother who struggles to communicate with her son, due to both language and cultural barriers. She sacrificed everything to give her son a better life in the United States but is now stuck working two jobs as a cook and she has no one to talk at work and at home. The realization that she is alone weighs down on her.
Shayla — A 27-year-old African American who is Paul’s best friend and also lives with her parents. She has spent all of her life dreaming of becoming a fashion designer but is stuck working as an assistant and is too passive to move up the ladder.
Danny — A 27-year-old Mexican-American who has been Paul’s friend since 3rd grade and who is also gay. He works at a retail store and doesn’t think he’s good enough to become an artist. His constant self-doubt causes him to not try in life.
Ryan — A 35-year-old Caucasian-American who is Paul’s love interests. He works a menial day job but is also trying to be a music producer. He might be more into Paul than Paul is into him.
George — An older gay Asian man who goes to the bars alone every night. He’s a mentor and friend to Paul.
Jackie — Shayla’s mother who works as a civil engineer. She doesn’t mind that her daughter and son live at home with her since they contribute to paying bills and help around the house. But she worries that Shayla is in a rut in her life.

Act Natural Casting Call

Project Overview:

Title: Act Natural

Genre: Speculative fiction

Union/Non-Union: Non-union

Project Length: Multi-season anthology, 6-10 episodes (first season).

Recording Location: Long Beach, CA OR remote

Email: actnaturalpodcast@gmail.com

The Story:

Abducted by extraterrestrials, radio personality Michelle Elwin finds herself captive to the whims of two sinister and inspired creators of an intergalactic podcast series called Act Natural where they casually manipulate the lives of humans in order to tell the universe’s most authentic stories. (Please note, while it isn’t necessarily beholden to any particular sub-genre, the stories will often lean toward horror and deal with a heavy subject matter.)

Audition Notes:

We are recording out of Long Beach, CA and would love to work with actors in studio when possible, but we will also be working with remote performers. All you need is a good quality microphone and an isolated recording space.

Since Act Natural is a small production and will be released for free, compensation cannot be guaranteed; though, we are passionate about the work we do and those we choose to work with. We shall promote the actor’s work outside of this project and any possible revenue from production will go straight to the cast and crew. We will launch a Patreon with the release of the pilot episode.

The Ghost Radio Project

GRP roles are unpaid gigs. This is a labor of love. Knoxville-area residents only. Must be over 18 years of age to participate in the podcast.

Please do not apply for roles meant to represent minorities and marginalized groups if you do not share their identity. This means you must be a transgender person to play a trans character, you must be a person of color to play POC characters, you must be an Autistic person to play an Autistic character, etc.

If race is not specified in the role description, that does not mean the character is therefore white  — in The Ghost Radio Project, white is not a “default.”  Representation is very important to us. We want our cast to reflect real life and all the diversity therein. So, if you think you could play the character, please audition! No past acting experience is required.
