Adventures Of "Crusty Pete" Need VOICE ACTORS Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

*not sure what form to put this in*

Ahoy! I be Officer Graceodell with the Jack of Aces on the sage ocean. I be writing the tails of “Crusty Pete” and was wondering if anyone would be interested in making the writings of Crusty Pete come to {Simi} life online. I got the idea after doing some art work one night, and then this amazing story rolled out of my pen. And since ive wanted to make a "book on tape" sort of thing.

SO

What I need is some good VOICE ACTORS to bring me characters to life. If anyone would be interested in doing a part from my story could ye just let know.
I am just feeling for interest right now. And once I know if this will be ago then actors will get there lines and then once everything is put together then ye will get to see it.

So here are the parts I be casting for.

Characters

Narrator- Someone who can read with excitement, a natural story teller.

Main-

Crust Pete- Down on his luck, and out of grog; Crusty Pete is the worst pirate to sail the seven seas, but that all changes late one stormy night.

Polly- Crusty Pete’s only friend, and trusted first mate. He’s/she’s (haven’t decided if it’s a boy or girl) a parrot.

Old seadog-Ghost of a fellow lousy pirate. Who gives Crusty Pete the power to change his destiny. Gruff, stern, strong, almost like someone who’s smoked to much. (or give me yer take on a old seadog.)

Grandson of the seadog- Hermit who lives on the isle of the dead man’s chest. Self isolation after finding the world’s greatest treasure.

Minor-Major

Little “cannibal” girl- Girl on first island with the first set of keys for the dead mans chest.

Tiny Women- Key holder on the second Island; tiny of stature (6 inches tall about), high pitched voice.

Fisher-pirate- Voice of the fisher-pirate reading his note to Crusty Pete… no real guide lines. He is male!

Minor-

Old man with green teeth- Heckler of Crusty Pete; make’s fun of Crusty Pete when ever he can.

Crowd- Laughing people

So if any of this sounds interesting or if ye want more info leave a note here on the bored and I will read them and see where it stands.

A book on tape, huh? Hmmm...sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind 'auditioning' for the cannibal, tiny woman, or Polly parts.

On tape, my voice sounds quite high and girly, so I reckon I could be a good Cannibal Girl or Tiny Woman. Polly I could probably do too. Im happy to be drafted in when needed, I can make my voice sound like basically anything, I will experiment. Also, if ye need any other parts, Im here if ye want me, just send me a PM.

I would love to audition for one of the male parts. I have acting training and a bit of professional voice acting experience. Mostly I do classical theatre though.

My last voice project was small, but we got three nominations and won a 2006 Machinima Festival Award. It's called Just a Game and it won for Best Off-the-Shelf

So count me in for auditions, I'm looking forward to reading the script!

I would like to mention that if I may also audition for the role of the narrator I would love to. If ye really only need the male parts filled, just send me those sides then.

I would have edited my earlier post but the edit button is not workign with the recent forum updates.

I be so pleased with the interest ye all are showing :)

as for the script it will basicly just be yer spoken parts that ye will get, i want the story to be a surprize once i put it all together.

Ye can try out for more then one spot. Really im just looking for good voice's to match up with the movie i see in my head, so weather ye get one spot or five it doesnt matter to me :)

I hope to have picked snippits out of the story to have for ye to read shorty. I will go through the list in the morning and see what spots need to be adutioned first.

I be so excited. I want to thank ye all for helping me bring me dream to reality.

Oh and when and if ye add me to yer yahoo messenger, pls let me know who ye be first before ye add me.

Great, so i will talk to ya'll shorty.

Ahoy all,

Okay, so I spent most of last night and this morning setting up the audition takes. So what I need is for everyone who wants to audition to send me an email to

evergreen_girly@yahoo.com

In the email please have your screen name from the forum and the part/s you would like to read for. Most parts are small so if you want to take on more then one your most welcome but make sure your voice changes for each roll. I will give out more details in the email when I reply. So feel free to ask any questions.

Once again in order to do this ye will need:
-Mic
-Computer & internet access (one would hope since yer here ye have that)
-Imagination
-ability to laugh at yerself
-Ability to take direction
-a willingness to be goofy, and silly when needed


I want to thank everyone who is helping to make this dream reality. I can’t wait to hear from everyone.

Is it possible to get a sneak peek at what these characters look like? That helps some folks realize if they can do the voice justice or not.

Ahoy everyone! Happy holidays!
Wow lots of typing to do. Here we go

Synful : aye, I got your audition. Thank ye so much. As for pictures, I am working on it. I have crusty Pete done, but no scanner so I use my mother in-laws. I am working on drawings *hint hint*

Gloraelin : aye of course I want ye to. When are ye getting back? I’ve been giving pirates 2 weeks from the time they email me, so let me know :)

Arty : Aye, I got yer email and I have written you back :)

Noheart : It’s alright, I understand Christmas is a crazy time for everyone (that’s why its taken me so long too).

Ok so I think I’ve answered those…. If not ask more :)

Um… um… um… oh right… so you get 2 weeks from the time I get an email saying you want the part(s) to get the recording into me. I have some software that’s free if anyone needs some recording software.

Oh and microphone … Please try to not have any back ground noise in it, I find it’s best to have a headset microphone, or if your using a stand up microphone try putting a foam cover for a microphone over it (remove the small white cap and slip the foam over), it stops your breath from being recorded.

Make sure when your reading a part that your acting and not reading it… it’s very important. Think of being on a stage and acting out your lines. I know its hard with what has been given but there is some direction and if you need more or want to change something then let me know by sending me an email: evergreen_girly@yahoo.com and we can either write emails, chat on yahoo messenger (evergreen_girly); I also have voice chat if you would like to do it that way, or I have msn messenger but I will only give that out in an email.

So once again thank you for helping me, I think you’re all going to love the out come. I think I will send each of you a disk recording if you like. I wish there was something else I could do.

Graceodell

Just a tip for recordings... Dont stop the recording even if you mess up keep going start over but dont stop the recording. this way i can take the best word or sound or whatever... so say each line about 5 times. Gives me more to use when im editing.

Nope no one has been picked yet:)

just ment that when your recording dont stop, keep it recording and just start over so i can pick the best take maybe say the one line over and over about 5 times so i can pick certin things out of each one to get the perfect take. It would help so much.

even if you give me 5 takes in 5 different files thats good too (ie one line per saved file)

I don't know yet. Apparently the hard drive just crashed and burned, and the store is waiting for a replacement. I might be able to hijack one of my family's computers to do the recording, but I'm not sure at the moment.
