icon In need of voice actors (+2)  
I'm beta-testing a hold and I'd like to add some real voices to the dialogue. I'm not a native English speaker, and I don't have anything like a microphone or other audio stuff. So I can't do this myself.

It's a one-level hold, so not too much dialogue is there. I'd need the following contributions:
1. Beethro
2. Two exceedingly chatty door(wo)man
3. An arrogant unicorn.
Makes sense doesn't it?

The two door(wo)man annex wardens interrupt each other all the time, so it would be nice if they could be recorded in a single version as a single sound file. Perhaps you can do voice acting and trick a family member or housemate into participating as well?

For all voices, I'd be happy to accept female or male speakers (yes, I'd be perfectly happy with a female Beethro).

I can offer you unlimited gratitude and a honorable in-hold scroll mention of your contribution.

Naturally, you would be allowed to reshape the dialogue so that you're comfortable with acting it out. After all, your English will be better than mine, so written dialogue text follows sound acting results.

If you're interested, please respond below or pm me.

Huge thanks!

Here's something I came up with for the doormen. Both are me, and it was recorded in a single take. It's funny that they sound extremely similar, right?

Tnx diso and moe,

I am already pretty annoyed by your doormen, so these are good. Just the type of character I had in mind.

Going to sleep more, but will add both of you to the beta board tomorrow and give you some input regarding the dialogue. Then you can decide if you like it enough to participate.

I can do some lines if you're still looking for another voice.

Yes, that'd be great! Will add you to the beta board as well.
Will give all of you more info over there.

EDIT: ok, that's diso in beta testing and moe and someone via pm. Will try to coordinate things as best as I can.

PS: moe, are you related to Elfo? Your doormen sure sound like him :)

So you said you wanted both doormen voices to be in the same audio track. How will that work with the lines by Beethro in there?

Yes, in an ideal world we would have one take for all. However, Beethro has just 4 lines or so. I can cut and paste those interruptions into the audio stream. But the doormen are constantly interrupting each other, so that would be a real pain to edit.

I'll try to make a complete transcript for all rooms today, and indicate the 'takes'.

I've attached the script, including some remarks and explanations.

Feel free to ignore those if you have better ideas :)

So now we have:
Average moe --> doing two doormen (is that definitely ok?)
Disoriented --> Beethro or Unicorn & Mimic (what would you like, judging from the script?)
Someone Else --> Beethro or Unicorn & Mimic (what would you like, judging from the script?)

The parts of the unicorn and the mimic can easily be combined. Together those are just a couple of lines.

Beethro is also quite sparse with words in this hold.

If you could let me know what you'd like to do, we can move on.

This is very exciting for me. My first hold with actual voice acting!

Love it!!

I was thinking, "Maybe my dialogue is just plain madness?"

And now I'm sure! Thanks for that. This is a very nice way to start of the hold.

Tnx.

Glad you like it. I've attached a mimic sample. For some reason, I imagine mimics as robotic automatons, so I recorded using synthesized voices from Google cloud.

Tnx for the mimic idea. I've neven thought about mimics that way, and actually, I took a mimic character just to have something running around.

But it does give me an idea for a character I'll use in the hold. So this is serendipitously perfect.

Tnx again!

Sorry this took me so long! The best place for me to record is at work before anyone else gets here, so it took me a while to get it all done. I've recorded (usually) 3 takes of each line, but I'm happy to re-record if you think one of the lines doesn't sound right (or you'd like me to try a different voice).

Thanks Someone Else!

Will check out out later, but with three takes, I'm sure I'll be happy.
