SUUUPAA AUDISHION UPUDAATUU!
Have a lot of free time? Want to
make a contribution?Always had secret ambitions to
pretend to be an anime character? You've come to
the right place.
- NEW: (4/23) Yes, I'm sorry to implement this rule,
but necessity is the mother of radioplays.
TWO WEEK RULE: If you do not respond to the director within
14 calendar days, you will be dropped from the roster. No exceptions.
In this day and age, if you can't go to the local library and sign up for a
hotmail account to let the director know what's up in the
real world with you, then the director can't be bothered to
keep you on the cast when there are loads of other people
who want to act. I'm realistic, I realize you're not being
paid, but quite a few people want to do this. They want
to build up a resume, have fun, impress mom and dad, whatever.
If you aren't committed to me, then I ain't to you. BUT, by the same
token, If I ain't comitted to you, then I'll eat my hat and cough up $50 bucks.
- NEW: (4/23) Cast meetings. For any given play (get it?) Once every so often (to be announced),
no less than twice a month and no more than four times a month, the director will call a
cast meeting via IRC at irc.nabiki.com:6667 #radioplay (email Me if you
don't know what that is.) These meetings will officially last no longer than half an
hour to discuss the forward movement of the play at hand. Chatting and hanging out for longer
are much encouraged for the cast to get to know one another.
Missing two cast meetings in a row are grounds for getting canned, although a reasonable explanation in advance will

- Otherwise, make sure you
have a decent
microphone, a sound card, and software to
record your voice. (No, Sound Recorder for
Windows does not cut it.) If you are in dire
need of decent software, proceed to the links page and
download Goldwave. If you use a different
operating system (MacOS/Be/Amiga/Linux etc.)
drop me a line, and we'll see what we can't
dig up. A decent microphone does not mean a

Check out your local computer store for a decent mic.
While not professional, the needs of voice recognition, gaming &c. have really
driven up the quality of microphones, while driving down the cost. Definitely
make use of most of the big chains' excellent return policy in choosing a mic.
(I'd dictate one, which would be the best thing, but this ain't a studio, and I
ain't a dictator, of any country, any ways.)
A good, inexpensive microphone
may be purchased from your local Radio Shack on the
order of $14.99 (USD). I recommend the
"Unidirectional Dynamic Microphone"
(RS Catalog 33-3018) because it's cheap and
it's not a horrible microphone, (you don't
want to pay $60 bucks for a balanced mic if
you're not going to get into this, do you?)
Your monitor mic will not cut it. Nor will
that bargain basement $3.00 mic you got at
Compusa. (Or any mic bought from there, for
that matter.) Remember, you will need a
1/4" to stereo jack adapter. ($0.75 USD)
if you go with one of Radio Shacks PA mics.

your lines, load this

record your lines.
- Email the sample to Maxwell
_E and cross your fingers.
