So... you've written a script.
You've put a lot of time and energy into it and the characters whose story you're telling... so now you need.... Voices!

As a director and scriptwriter, I feel one of the greatest joys of machinima making is listening to the voice actors bringing your characters to life. Even though you direct them, they always bring a personal spin to the role, which, in the ideal case, gives the character and the story even more depths.

This thread is for all those who would like to offer their voices to the community; to give a short description of their voice, their range, the characters they like to play, their preferred method to get into contact with them, and, if possible, to either upload a sample file or post a link to movies they've acted in.

Please don't post your requests in this thread!
And always remember - we all do this for fun, in our free time, so if you contact someone, be civil, give extensive details of your project - for most of us, that would be the full script plus character description and links to your previous movies - and react gracefully if you get a "No" - every voice actor has a right to choose her/his roles!

And now... good luck with the search for Voices!

I strongly recommend that anyone approaching voice actors review this article on recruiting voice actors: Recruiting Voice Actors


Name: dulci
Gender: female
Voice description: midwest american. I'm usually described as sweet, innocent, melancholy, melodious.
Preferred roles: I'm interested in playing well-defined characters that intrigue me. My least favorite role is the love interest of the leading man. I like to test my boundaries. Challenge me. I work with directors who impress me.
contact me: via pm on this forum. I usually take a few days to consider each role, so please don't expect an immediate response.

additional: I don't respond to requests that read like this "I need a girl in my movie. Are you a girl?" It takes me a while to finish my lines, so if you're in a rush I'm not a good choice. I've had some bad experiences, can you tell? :P I want your movie to be successful, so if I don't think I'm right for a role, I'll be honest about it.

It's amazing how any of our movies ever get made with only 2 VA's to choose from!

Name: Ellis (Ellis07)
Gender: Male
Voice Discription: I have a British voice. I haven't got a local accent, having been living all round England, so basically it's purely British - but not posh. There's also an element of deepness in my voice as well. I can try all sort of accents for instance cockney, American, Scottish. Don't ask me to do Austraila, I've been practising for years and I haven't made any improvement.
Preferred Role: I like ranging my roles. I have done alot of 'scum' roles in stage performances, so I am experienced. Gangsta' roles, I do
enjoy as well. I've always had the 'smaller' role in voice acting. So, I would like to expand into bigger roles.
Contact me PM on these forums would be suitable. I do have skype and msn, so ask if you want it.

Additional: I'm not too picky. However I don't say 'yes' to anything. It must have my attention. Rushed movies don't interest me. Making a movie in a longer duration would probably catch my interest better.

Name: Nugget
Gender: Male
Voice Description:Varied. Despite that I'm 17, it's still a little on the teenage lilty-scale, but unlike when I started The Movies (age 14) it doesn't sound like it's been edited if you do fiddle with it. I can 'play' with my voice to an extent, but I can't do believeable accents. So I'm probably more suited to comedic voices.
Preferred Roles: Well I'm not exactly an established VA, so I'd probably pick anything right about now. Just don't expect "perfectly" clear results. :P
Contact PM on here.

Additional: Like most people on here I don't really go for movies that aren't interesting, or don't evoke the right emotion I'd feel. Especially comedy, if it doesn't make me laugh, I won't be voicing that rubber chicken!

Links: Are a little worthless, as the only voices I've done were years ago. >.< So I'm a lucky dip until someone finally picks me!

Name: Looks to the left and figure it out
Gender: Male
Voice Description:I have a range that goes from A to B - I usually get authoritarian roles (cops, soldiers, newsreaders), though I've done others with mixed success - see Marine's "Let's Kill The Sheriff" , a film JazzX described as "well up its own TMO arse" - he also didn't like my dodgy Chinese accent, but clearly he never saw Bonanza and the Cartwright's Chinese cook, Hop Sing.
Preferred Roles: Being on the Voice Acting D list, I don't decline a lot of parts, since I assume that you've probably had many of turndowns before you finally said "Okay, I guess I could always ask Ken". On the other hand, if I'm too busy, I'll tell you no. I also need a firm deadline and the occasional cattle prod up the ol' kazoo to make sure I get you your lines on time. And I offer a "money back if not delighted guarantee"!
Contact PM on here or email me or Skype me or find me at Cheeseburgers & More on Sunday nights - I'll be the guy with a burger in one hand and a glass of beer in the other.

Name: Howie

Gender: Male

Voice description:
I have quite a mid-higher pitch voice for a -/+ 30yo male. I'd say I sound younger than I am.

Natural accent is from southern England (London). Happy to give others a go.

 

I love to try and put on voices but they tend to be comedic - suggest my natural for more serious roles.

Preferred roles:

I don't really have a preference to be honest. I'll take in pretty much anything I like the sound of :)
I love roles that challenge me to try something new - and I'm always happy for directorial feedback to amend lines where necessary.

 

My American accent is not very believable, so I'm afraid Westerns are out for me unless I play a foreigner or it's a comedy!

Contact me: By PM here!

Additional:

You can hear my natural speaking voice on my YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/HowitzerBug

I can change it significantly for acting roles though - happy to send audition lines :)

Name: Nile Zam Jones (OD-Ork-Boy/Orky)

Gender: Male

Voice description: About as diverse as you'd like it, from the most deep, gritty and booming to the most high-pitched, timid and childish, and a lot in-between. I'm American accented but can do a somewhat convincing Russian/Eastern European accent (best for small roles only) and can do a perfectly believable "Southerner" voice (Aka, cowboy accent).

Preferred roles: Characters whose purposes and goals are somewhat a mystery, and who cannot be classed as "good" nor "bad" but rather somewhere in between. I don't mind playing leads or extras, but I generally find I'm better at playing supporting or secondary characters. It's a plus if the character is a mafia-type, and I'm far more willing to play the role if it's a developed one.

Contact me: Pm me here or on TMO, or E-mail me at Jawa_man@hotmail.com.

Additional: Will only accept a role in a movie with a full script. Give me some time and don't be afraid to give me a reminder every now and then.

Name: rposhard (aka RPO)

Range: I don't set limits -- I do a great many voices, especially in my own movies though I have appeared in a great many other movies. Basically, tell me what you're looking for and give me a few sample lines -- I'll record it for you and you can decide if it fits your needs or not. Although I am not a professional VA I do try to give professional quality -- which is my way of saying that good voice work takes time -- something you should bear in mind no matter who you work with. Don't give me a script and say "I need it in two days" -- it ain't gonna happen with me and is an unfair request to make of any VA that takes their voice work seriously.

Contact: You can contact me on Skype or by PM or my e-mail address: voiceguy1000@aol.com

Please note that I am generally not available in January, February and March as that is usually when I am running my "Ultimate TMOer" competition.

Name: Jorge
Gender: Male

Voice description: Can't do deep voices well. My natural voice still pretty much sounds like it did when I was 17 years old (I'm 27 now). If you want to hear my natural voice, Antonio's character in my Faded Sunrise Teaser is pretty much it. I have an American accent and can do Mexican-American, Texan accent (from thick to subtle). I can do but am limited with African-American accents, South-Eastern American (Mississippi, Alabama, etc.).

Preferred Roles: Pretty much anything, I'm having a lot of fun and would be glad to participate in someone else's movie. Comedy, Drama I'd like to try it all.

Contact me: PM here, I'm almost always on. And when I'm not, I get an e-mail on my phone right away.

Additional: I've been cast as the lead in a new series. Episodes are 20 minutes long each, so if I happen to be too busy to accept a role, I'll be sure to let you know right away.
