Character Auditions
« on: October 12, 2007, 01:13:31 AM »
The time has come to start choosing character roles! :nod:

I'm glad that we've got a good group of voice actors now. The list of actors looks like this:

Strike911
StarDragon
D-Mac
fscarl
McBrad
DZComposer
AqueousShadow
Maximum Iceness

Everyone is active!!

Now what we need to do is decide who fits best with which parts. Here's what all the Voice Actors need to do:
1) Take a look @ the character list. Choose at least five characters that you want to audition for.
2) Look through the character reference thread and try to get a good feel for your character.
3) For the five characters that you have chosen, record at least three lines for each character. Any line will do, but it is best to choose lines that they may have spoken in the SF games.
4) Once you are done recording all of your lines, pack them into a zip archive and upload them. If you need space to upload, e-mail them to me zephyruswing at gmail dot com.
5) Post in this thread, listing all of the characters you have chosen and the lines that you are speaking. Provide a link to your samples in your post.

Please, please, PLEASE have fun!! Star Fox is very cheesy, corny, and cartoony!! Go overboard with your acting and have fun with it!!
And don't forget the "acting" in Voice Acting!! Try to get in the role of your character as much as possible!!


*Please refer to the thread on "protocols" and record your samples according to those guidelines.
*NOTE: Some characters have lines recorded for them already. However, most of those scripts will no longer be used, new lines will be recorded, and the full voice acting team has now been formed. As such, it will probably be best if we all follow the new audition guidelines. This only applies to Strike911, DZComposer, and myself. In spite of this, most of those lines will probably be recycled.  I just want to open things up for our new team.

Are we to take the lines from that "Generic Scripts" thread, or just pick some lines from a game in the series that we like?

We will have scripts for everything.

For now, we need to get the general chatter done.

Hopefully we'll be able to provide you with some kind of emotional background for  the mission scripts. However, that's not possbile for the general chatter, cause it has to fit in every situation.

@fscarl: You can pick any lines that you want from any game, just as long as that specific character said it.

Yeah, I debated throwing on the "robot" effect or not.   Just decided to go ahead and do it.

He was the last one I decided to audition for and just decided to go for it.

Here's my audition pieces for this round.  Constructive comments and opinions are welcome! (as are compliments, of course :D )

Zipped Audition clips (2.5MB)

General Pepper
"Fox!  We're under attack!  Help us out here!"
"If you destroy the satellite, we can go straight for Venom!  Be careful, Fox..."


Attack Carrier Pilot
"Ah!  Someone wants to play!"
"Deploy all units!  CHARGE!!!"


ROB64
"Message from General Pepper.  Priority: One"

Bill Grey
Don't get too excited!  Here we go!"

Narrator
"Corneria.  Fourth planet of the Lylat system.  The evil Andross turned this once thriving system into a wasteland of near extinction."

All of those are AWESOME.  The weakest was General Pepper.  He just didn't seem.. Old enough?  Just my opinion.  Still damn good.

I think we're gonna have a good mix of villain voices to choose from :devel:


And your Bill and ROB whipped mine.
