    Rayzur's Edge Audio, the team behind the three acts of STAR WARS: SECOND STRIKE and the six current episodes of STAR WARS: ANTHOLOGY, is now beginning casting on a new audio drama project that resurrects the PRELUDE TO HOPE 2.0 script by NATHAN BUTLER (Second Strike, Anthology, ChronoRadio, et al) into a new tale entitled STAR WARS: NOTHING CHANGES, which will blend seamlessly into the continuity of SECOND STRIKE and ANTHOLOGY.

    At present, the following parts are needed:

    1. Skyben Lokan: Skyben is a Rebel agent. He's somewhat sarcastic, very much like one would expect of the attitude of a college student or FARSCAPE's John Crichton. He acts as one of three members of the protagonist group in the story, with a fair amount of airtime.

    2. Supervisor Gildun: Gildun is an Imperial supervisor on the planet Ord Bendis. He is somewhat full of himself. He should most likely have an English accent, but that is not a requirement.

    3. Captain Davin: Davin has a small role in the tale, but acts as our voice to take us out of the story and into its credits. He is captain of a Rebel vessel called the Stallion. He needs to be able to sound frantic but controlled.

    4. Security Camera Operator: For an unnamed role, this role has a fair number of lines. He is a straightforward security officer for a private company.

    5. Imperial Officer: Impetuous, probably young, probably English accent. Male.

    6. Aide: Same general description as Imperial Officer.

    7. Pilot: A handful of lines, no specific accent. Likely male.

    To audition, provide files (or preferably LINKS to files hosted elsewhere) to nathan@starwarsfanworks.com.

    Use the following lines, please:

    SKYBEN: Hey, man, it's all about perpetuating the species. I'm hours of fun . . . Alright, fine. But a guy can dream, can't he?

    GILDUN: Look around you, commander. Rebels. Bloodied, battered, bruised, and utterly beaten. These were captured in a raid on one of our perimeter stations. These Rebels attack military targets, not civilian. Are you certain of your information?

    DAVIN: Rancor Team, are you receiving? Kova, are you there? Transmission unclear. Please respond.

    OTHERS: Yes, sir. There should be no time delay. This footage is live.

    Mmm, methinks I might try this out. I'll be sending in a few audio files later today.

    Ruben: Got the clips. You're running into the same problem we had with the Second Strike part. Your recordings are *really* static-filled. It's probably your recording quality settings. What are you using? And can you alter settings?

    I cannot recall at the moment what the settings are(currently in college), but I believe they're the default settings. I know the problem, and can remove the static. Those recordings you heard were made in a bit of a hurry, hence I didn't bother to remove the static at that time.

    Right now, just pick one and send again with the un-static-y settings so I can just hear clarity.

    I'll have to listen to NWO again. However, I'll keep in mind that you want in.

    So far, I've got interest from Michael Smith, Ruben van der Leun, Sean Koury, Steve Mollmann, and, if he gets his mic back, Gregory Harbin.

    Much, much, MUCH clearer.

    I'm holding the auditions open, by the way, until at least Wed. or Thurs. I had a request from Chris Walker to give him time to get to it, and as I can't be upsetting my Anthology writers... :p

    That should give a decent pool to cast from by then.

    Ohhhhh drat! I'd quite like to try this one. And here I am with a stuffy head! You'll remember the parts I did for you before, Nathan. But if you can give it a day, I'll see if I can't get my head to clear up enough to get you a decent Audition file by tomorrow night or Thursday afternoon. Would that be okay? I HATE being sick!!

    *COFF*

    Well, I'm still not feeling 100%, but hopefully you'll dig the auditions I just sent along. It may be a little more quiet than the other files I've sent. But I just discovered that the high pitched whine on the other files I tried to send to you were a result of the microphone boost. I deactivated that and tried as best as I could. I could use a REAL audio card instead of the on the motehrboard crap I've got... Ahh well. Here's hoping!

    Hmm... don't see it there yet. Try the same address at graffiti.net. Hotmail box is kind of full, and may have bounced it.

    I'm not certain wether you've sent any lines to me yet, Nathan, but I haven't gotten anything. Did you send them to the adress in my profile? (it's a different one than the one I used for Second Strike)

    Righty-O! Just sent along the lines for Skyben Lokan tonight. You ought to have them by now I should think. Let me know if you need retakes or anything like that.
