Hullo! Currently looking to cast episode 1, which (as the podcasts may have told you) is sent in ancient Egypt - specifically the Armarna period. It's possible that if we think you'd be good for a character in one of the other un-cast episodes, based on these readings, that we may ask you to play a different role, but largely we're looking for Ancient Egyptians, here. To be played with British accents please - Northern or Scottish accents ideal.

Deadline for audition pieces is fairly flexible, but we'd ideally like to hear from you by April 14th.

How our auditions work/time commitment stuff - explanation now much shorter )

Audition dialogue - please audition for any/all characters you're interested in )

In summary:
1. Record and upload audition sections for any parts you're interested in.
2. Comment (all comments are screened) or email radiosonicworkshop@gmail.com with a link to your upload.
3. Ideal audition deadline April 14th 2012.

Episode 1 casting now closed. Thanks to everyone who auditioned!

We are looking for:

* Directors - who have directed at least one show in any medium
* Editors - no experience necessary
* SFX sourcers - no experience necessary
* Music sourcers - no experience necessary
* Musicians of all types, but particularly string instrumentalists and percussionists
* Composers
* Production Assistants - experience: good at lists, sending emails, and staying in touch. It would be great if you'd run or modded a fest/comm/similar.

If you're willing to do any of these tasks PLEASE get in contact with us. The work should be both fun and rewarding and, as you can see, no experience is necessary for a lot of the roles we need. When we do ask for experience, we're just wondering how best to assign you and working out what you'd be most comfortable doing, rather than judging you for a job interview.

We are not currently auditioning any parts. More to follow, so keep checking back!

We’d like you to record these sections in the environment you would record the actual episodes, and with the equipment you would use. Please note that this is because one of the things we will be considering with your audition is audio quality. This includes, but isn’t limited to, mic quality, background noise, and compression rate. (So, if you have access, now’s the time to finagle usage of that fancy uni recording equipment!)

In case you are intimidated by this, PLEASE DON’T BE! ALMOST ANYONE WILLING TO ACT COULD VERY WELL BE ACCOMMODATED. Show us what you've got, and we'll work with you on sound quality and time. Those are factors to think about, but what we're looking for is a great performance. Don't let the fact that you don't currently have a foam-lined podfic bunker lying around keep you down/stop you auditioning! The techy bits you’ll be expected to deal with are pie-easy once you get the hang of them, we swear. We save the true descent into hell for the editors...


* Your contact info. (Minimum we need is an email address, but feel free to provide Skype, AIM, etc.)
* A little about your acting experience. Have you taken direction before? Your experience level is not a make or break factor in our casting decisions, but it’s helpful to know about.
* How much time can you commit to this project? We’ll try to give you an idea of what the role demands--some parts are simply one or two lines, other episodes will feature non-main actors about as heavily as they do the mains. This will be strung out over a while (up to a few weeks, maybe even more), but you would need to be able to find time for that, and possibly at odd hours, as your director may opt for ‘live’ i.e. simultaneous recordings. The schedule will be as amenable to you as possible, but if you don’t have much free time or flexibility, a large role may not be for you.
* Would you be willing to do future series?
* As mentioned above, if necessary, would you be willing to purchase a better mic? How much would you be willing to spend? (Keep in mind that a decent headset mic usually runs $15-25, and a VERY nice standing USB condenser mic runs around $100.)
* Can you do any ‘voices’ or ‘accents’ we should know about? This includes your fiercest Ssssssssea Devil, and so on. Some of the alien qualities of these voices are down to post-production, but the bulk is voice work. Watch Nick Briggs live--I hope he sometimes does this voice in public while ordering pancakes, just to terrify near-by children.
* What time-zone do you live in? (This cannot affect your chances, it’s just a planning question.)


Upload to something like Tindeck, Box.net, or Mediafire, and post in the comments OR email to radiosonicworkshop [at] gmail [dot] com. All comments are screened – due to the nature of LJ’s screening function we won’t reply to these comments, but actors will have our thanks and will be contacted as we need them. GIVEN THE PRODUCTION SCHEDULE, IT MAY BE SOME TIME BEFORE WE CONTACT YOU REGARDING OUR BURNING NEED FOR A SILURIAN OR SOME SUCH.
