OPENING NEW AUDITION FOR GENERAL MULLER
Today, 11th september, the audition is finished. But, as we didn't receive a good audition for general Müller, I'm changing its charateristics and opening a new audition for him.
Deadline: 20th september
Bionite: Origins is an indie videogame created by Platoon Studios. It is an extended FPS: While the player pilots advanced hover tanks, he will be able to isue fast tactical actions to his wingmen, build and deploy a base and defend it... We are aiming to launch the open, free multiplayer beta soon.
For the end of this year we will start launching the singleplayer campaign... and that's where you come in!
Why we need Voice Actors/actresses:
Platoon Studios is going to create a serie of 9-10 videos explaining the prologue of the campaign: The whole historical and fiction facts that will bring the player to understand the universe of Bionite: Origins.
Those videos will be released for free on the net.
Yeah, free videos. So, what do you win?
The chance to, later, being a voice actor for a character of the singleplayer campaign!
How to present your auditions for one or more characters?
1st): Select the characters you want to auction for.
2nd): Read their description. Understand the character.
3rd): Get your recording hardware
4th): Record the lines I put in the character description in this post
5th): Send an email, detailing your name, experience, and what characters you want to voice at firstname.lastname@example.org
6th): Good luck!!
What? Only male roles? YOU SEXIST BAST....
Any actress is encourage to audition for any of the secondary characters. At this point there are only 3 fixed male characters: Neilson, Muller and Mason. The rest could be any gender.
In the game campaign there is at least one female main character. But we will do an audition for it later, when we start voicing it.
PROMOTION VIDEOS CHARACTERS
General Moritz C. Müller
(Note: Not final conceptual art)
Natural from: Not decided
Role: Commander. A very important character in the campaign, playing in the same side as Mason
A mature, almost and old man with a talent for making elaborate plans and bending the rules. He has achieved his high rank through his progress and results and not so much for following protocol. He will not normally take part in the action, except if the circunstances force him to do so. But he will not doubt to jump into his tank if his men are in great danger and he has an slight possibility of saving them.
Medium pitch. As he never really enters in combat, he should remain calm in* almost all situations, giving instructions and improvising plans fast and clearly.
Originally, he had german accent. But as it seemed a big deal for our voice actors, we are letting it to an 'open' nationality. Feel free to make any accent you want: German, russian, american, british...
“All squadrons, this is General Müller. Your orders are to engage enemy forces, help defenders and proceed in one piece to the Emze Mine. We don't know what we are facing, so take extreme precautions.” (giving instructions while his army is making a combat drop over a planet to fight an unknown enemy)
“Neilson, this is General Müller from Luna 1. We've received your message. Help is on the way.”
“[...] Now I would like to address why you are here. You all have something in common; you are here for the same purpose. Each and every one of you was hand picked because you are the best of the best, the cream of the crop. You have recently participated in the most secretive recruiting process yet."* (Introductory speech at the beginning of the campaign)
DEADLINE FOR AUDITIONS: 20th September
And that's it! There are still more characters for the whole campaign, but for the moment we only need those as soon as possible.
Once again, if you want to audition for being a voice in Bionite: Origins, please send an email to:
detailing which character/s you want to audition for, your previous experience, and how much time you can dedicate to the project.
Send with your email the recorded lines, either in mp3 or wma formats (preferably in mp3 at this point).
If you are auctioning for Brian Mason, you have the most extensive role. You will need a lot of time. Please do not present for it if you don't have the needed time the next months.
- Why you ask about previous experience/ I don't have any experience?
It is not a must. If you have previous experience we'll like to know it so we can check your work. If you don't have any experience or way to prove it, this may be your chance to get some experience!
- I'm a woman. Can I audition?
Except the 3 characters with name (Mason, Neilson and Muller), the rest could be any gender. Feel free to audition! We want female voices in the game and the videos!
Any more questions? Ask in the post, or send me an email.
- Did you receive my audition recordings? Did you? DID YOU!?
I will respond to all the emails you send to the email. If you send the recordings and I don't respond in one or two days, please contact me here or send it again.
- Although there are not female roles in those videos, there will be 1 or 2 female characters in the game. I encourage any woman to take a try to any secondary character (such as secret agents, pilots, transmissions....).
- For mistake I wrote that the USA president should sound as Kennedy, when, in fact, it must be Richar Nixon. I changed it. My apologies for the mistake
- I update the voice specification for the lost transmission of 1970. "Try to transmit the voice of a man who suffered a lot and now tries to explain what hapenned before the transmission ends."
-I specify that we want also women roles. Read at the start of the doc.
-Opened audition for General Muller
