Time to see if I have voice actor volunteers or time wasters... I am going to test you.
Noobies are welcome to try this test to see if they want to try voice acting or not, the more the merrier.
Those on the roster will be removed if they fail to submit lines for this test before the deadline since this is a test to see if they are paying attention to news in the Va Guild as a well as their ability to read and follow the intructions on the About the VA Guild page. I am going to cut everybody some slack for this test and promote this job to the front page just this once so it is front page news. But that may not always be the case after this. You will be expected to monitor the VA Guild section for jobs and news if you want to help. Voice work must be centalized and organized to be effective.
First notice this job is listed under Voice Actor Jobs in the Voice Actor Guild, that is where you will be expected to look for jobs from now on.
The test will be considered successful if the VA has spotted this job on their own, and has followed the instructions on the About the VA Guild page and actually submitted lines to me. The test will be considered a failure if no lines reach me or if they fail to notice the job on their own. Failing to read the About the VA Guild
will be considered a part failure.
During these jobs you can ask questions, seek help, anything, its all okay, it is my job to give you that help so you can record those lines for me. I also encourage you to give your fellow voice actors friendly feedback on their lines. So they know how well you think they did too. This is how the VA Guild has always run. Its a community of Voice Actors that learn each others skills and stick up for each other.
I will now post a simulation of a real VA job.... You should post links to your work as comments on this page.
The TEST Project: Gil-galad
Hello Voice Actors.
I need you to record these lines for me and send them to me in the manner described on the About the VA Guild page. In addition I want you to name the lines as specificed below. EG
Filename = "use this filename for your recording" (without the quotes)
"this line under filename is the line i want you to record".
You have 1 week to complete the lines and post a link to them using the comments for this VA job. You can post as many attempts as you like, try different voices, try your own voice, but try and have fun with this.
Filename = "ThisIsAVeryLongFileNameLOTR1"
"Gil-galad was an Elven-king.
Of him the harpers sadly sing:
the last whose realm was fair and free
between the Mountains and the Sea."
Filename = "IWishThisFilenameWASSHORTERLOTR2"
"His sword was long, his lance was keen.
His shining helm afar was seen.
The countless stars of heaven's field
Were mirrored in his silver shield."
Filename = "WhatWasTheScoreTodayAnywayLOTR3"
"But long ago he rode away,
and where he dwelleth none can say;
for into darkness fell his star
in Mordor where the shadows are."
That is it, 3 lines, the file names are written down above the lines, everything else is on the About the VA Guild page. Ask any question you like below if your stuck, now is the time to thrash out those setup issues too.
