We’d like to put together as diverse a cast as possible, so please audition for any role you are interested in. Actors of color and LGBTQ+ actors are especially encouraged to audition!

Because recording will be remote, we would prefer a microphone of Blue Snowball quality or higher. Please audition using the setup you will be using if cast, and please make sure there are no technical issues or noise disruptions- this is an audition of your recording space as well as your performance. However, we welcome actors of all experience levels to audition– no prior experience in voice acting necessary!

Please note that Lock-Ups is funded entirely out of pocket by our creators and we are compensating actors to the best of our ability. We will launch a Patreon before the release of the pilot episode, and the first priority with those funds will be making sure that our cast is compensated fairly.

The Once and Future Nerd in need of a sound designer/mixer

Award-winning scripted Fantasy Adventure podcast THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD is looking to hire one or more Sound Designers/Mixers for its upcoming chapter and beyond.


For each episode, you would receive a script, cue list, and around 25 minutes of dialogue – pre-edited for timing and performance – and be asked to shape our lush and lived-in Fantasy world with ambience and sound cues, then mix and normalize. This is a great opportunity for sound designers to work with a lot of creative freedom while still benefiting from an established lore and brand.


Candidates will be asked to work on a 3 minute section as an audition before being brought on to do a complete episode.
Pay will be $50 (US) per completed episode. 


Please email iordic.princes at gmail dot com with interest or inquiries, subject line ‘TOAFN Mixer 2019.’ Please include a link to your reel, portfolio, or other recent work. Candidates without a reel, portfolio, or recent work will be considered but please mention it in your initial email.


Player call for actual play podcast Ghostpuncher Corps

Ghostpuncher Corps is currently recruiting guest players for a series of episodes that will air in the later half of 2019. These will be 2-3 episode mini-arcs featuring an adventure set in the Ghostpuncher universe with the Ghostpuncher Corps crew teaming up with teams of guest players.

As we are seeking players for these arcs we are also seeking people to commit to staying on the podcast long-term, and so for people who would be interested in committing to the project please sign up to participate in these episodes and note in your submission that you’re interested in staying on the show. These episodes will be a bit of a “try out” period for anyone who’s interested in joining long term to see who would be a good fit for the show. You do not necessarily need to be familiar with the show in order to submit, but please try to sample the comic or the show to get a sense of the tone and the universe you’re making a character in before you submit.

If you are interested either way, please send a short MP3 recording made with whatever best recording devices you have available with this information:

Introduce yourself with your name, your age, your pronouns, and a little bit about yourself & whatever podcasts or other media you’re involved in, if you would like to include that information.

Introduce us to your character. Your character is a Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition character, belonging to just about any character class you can justify story-wise bringing to the table, homebrew or otherwise. They’re human, level 8, of earth and live in America in 2018. Right now, the Corps are heavy on casters, so I would encourage low-magic classes, especially if you want to be considered for permanent cast status. If you do make a magic user, a few things to keep in mind:

  • Magic works differently in the Ghostpuncher universe than in D&D. Culture and cultural iconography powers magic. This can be interpreted in all sorts of different ways. Examples: A bard powered by the runes she soldered into the circuitboard of her synths, an art historian whose relationship to her own field becomes so fractured and tense she accesses warlock magic through it.
  • If your class has a relationship with divinity, what they worship in can be just about anything of cultural significance, as long as a person could feasibly worship it. Freddie Mercury, anime, capitalism, Fortnite, American muscle cars, you name it. At one point a character considered for the original cast was a Dolly Parton worshipping cleric.

After you’ve described your character, speak in their voice for at least one sentence. You gotta do a voice!

Send that MP3 to ghostpuncher666@gmail.com

Eve will start contacting guests for the mini arcs at the conclusion of the next Ghostpuncher Corps arc, expected mid 2019

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.

DETAILS TO DISCLOSE

GENDER IDENTITY:

ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS:

The following is the audition text for Hit the Bricks. You’ll notice instead of lines, we are asking you read a passage from the original Wonderful Wizard of Oz, as we have many characters to cast and some surprises down the road. You are encouraged to show your range, and not just read but perform the parts. We are looking for sincerity above all. You may send us up to three takes of this passage.

(See the site for the audition passage)


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.

AUDITION PROCESS

[Visit the site linked above and] Click a gender above to view available roles and apply. Alternatively, you may email theghostradioproject@gmail.com and let us know which role you are interested in to start the audition process. We will send you an audition script, and you will send us a quick video or audio audition. Please apply NOW, as our roles tend to fill very quickly. The first person to nail it gets the role, so make sure you’re at the top of the list by applying sooner rather than later.
