    Fan Audios Forum 24-hour Exclusive (I'm posting this to a lot of other fan sites tomorrow):

    The New Jedi Order Project is proud to announce an open casting call for ?The Invasion Begins?, a modification for the X-Wing Alliance space combat simulator game. ?The Invasion Begins? is the NJO Project?s flagship title in what will become an ongoing story that spans across many of the events of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. The voices recorded by you will be used for the in-game missions and for five cutscenes. Think of this as an ?interactive? audio drama, where the action (and the voices) happen while the player progresses through the game. You can read the pitch for our game mod two posts below.

    More information on ?The Invasion Begins? may be found by visiting http://njoproject.skywalkeronline.net.

    The Casting Process
    1. If you can do more than one voice (i.e. you can do more than one impression, like Sean Connery and Christopher Walken), then we encourage you to audition for more than one character.
    1. This casting call requires you to submit a short audition in WAV or MP3 format. MP3 format is desired but not necessary.
    2. Make sure you record in as quiet an environment as possible. The quality of your recording will have a small effect on what type of part you get, although most parts will have a radio filter applied to them so it won?t quite matter.
    3. You will need submit your audition via e-mail. Please include your name (or nick), the audition file as an attachment, and whether or not you are reading for a specific part (You don?t have to! In fact, it?s easier if you don?t) or a part with a certain amount of lines. Also be sure to include if you want to audition for more than one part. That?s four easy things. :)
    4. Please send all auditions to njoproject@skywalkeronline.net. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail the address above or post questions in this thread.
    5. We have 72 voice parts that need to be casted out. I can almost guarantee you that you will get a part if you submit an audition.

    The Audition
    This isn?t anything formal, so don?t stress yourself. We mainly just want to hear what you sound like and how many different people you can sound like if you?re auditioning for more than one part.

    You will notice a few movie characters in our cast. If you can sound like Harrison Ford or Mark Hamil or any of the others, then go for it!

    Here is a general reading. Since we have 72 parts, I can?t give separate readings for each character. Please read for both parts during the audition. Don?t worry about the gender.

    BRYON
    There's Jedi involved with everything now adays...

    CATHY
    The only time there hasn't been was when the Empire ruled

    BRYON
    (wincing)
    Yeah.... you have to admit though that they've cleaned up their act

    Uncomfortable silence.

    BRYON (cont.)
    Why did you buy it from him?

    CATHY
    I'm not sure... Dad said that he looked at that ship with a lot of hatred. He was a very peculiar person. My father must have felt sorry for him or something

    The Invasion Begins Storyline Pitch
    For the first time in 50 years, there is peace throughout the Galaxy. The New Republic has finally established a stable Government, and has made peace with the Empire.

    However, as always, trouble is never far away... on two planets, civil war is being planned by a charismatic and mysterious firebrand, and on the edge of known space, a discovery is about to be made that will change the course of the history of the Galaxy forever...

    A new enemy is about to make themselves known, an enemy that will cause the Sith and the Empire to pale in significance.

    The fate of the galaxy will rest in your hands. As Bryon Tomri, an ex Imperial pilot, you will have to face this new enemy on their own terms, attempting to combat their lethal and bizarre technology. But even as you do this, you will have to deal with betrayal among your friends and enemies, and will discover in this era of new unrest, you cannot trust anyone...

    Hey Chris, I think this belongs in the FanFilm forums!!! Just teasing...hehe. ;)Interesting concept though, quite interesting.

    So will Invasion be playable on it's own? or does it have to be played within the context of the video game?

    Either way, sounds like you've been planning a doozy.

    Played within the context of the video game, which incidentally is on LucasArt's classics list so it's only about 7 or 10 dollars retail.

    But you know that other audio drama I've alluded to? Well, you never know.
    ;)

    There are already 3 examples of audio dramas which I have roles in to download.

    Second Strike Act 3 Piltar Shuun.
    Doubt Cast: Drunk Patron
    Ressurection.: Stormtrooper Captain.

    If you want to still record something, let me know.

    I'm in for whatever you need. You've heard various voice work, other than Vong-style. Just drop me whatever you might want done.

    I'd like to be in, but only something small, please - ten lines or under.

    You can hear me as Prevoda Vatil in DOUBTS CAST, or Greedo, Luke and Chewie in RUN LEIA RUN.

    I can record the audition, too, if ya like, but since everyone else is submitting resumes... :p



    Rick McCallum loves you!

    Actually, I've already got the game. I have most of the LucasArts SW computer games. I think I'm missing Dark Forces I (I just have the demo 3 level version) and that's it. So I'll definitely be able to listen to/play/watch it. :p

    Did you get my e-mail with my Jaina submission? I curious to see if anyone else tried for her. If the sound id bad in the e-mail, let me know and I'll see if I can find a better way to record.

    KNick, that's too bad. :(

    RaiderJainaSolo, I got it. You sound just the part for Jaina, but you do need to find a better way to record. The volume is too low.

    Wanting to know:

    If we're supposed to do the audition in a character's voice, does that mean we have to make our future character sound like a girl?

    i.e.-If I want Kyp, and I do the audition like Kyp, I have to make Kyp sound like Cathy???

    No, gender doesn't matter. Neither does the character voice. It's just a boring conversation. Use your own dialogue if you like. But that's for people who don't want to bother with finding something else.

    The thing I want is to hear what you sound like. So if you can do more than one voice and want to do more than one part, I want to hear them all. :)

    p.s. For everyone who's interested, Bryon is British. So if you happen to be from Great Britain, and can act, that part still needs to be casted out.
