Title: Voice actors Posted: October 21, 2008 (06:30 AM)
We're currently recruiting voice actors for Neptune. In particular, I need a male who can deliver a nice British RP accent in a convincing, urgent style (and this is a pretty important role, as it's of the main 'radio guide' throughout the game), and a couple of American males do deliver fairly large roles. One should not have a strong regional accent, the other can.
Also looking for tonnes of minor roles as well, so if you fancy doing any of it, or know anyone who'd be interested, do get in touch.
Reasonable-quality recording equipment will be necessary. Doesn't need to be studio-level, but just something that won't sound crap in-game once our sound team has gone to town with it.

My uni course was in Drama and I am actually Britsh.
The drawbacks are it was Drama tech and I'm also lazy.

I'll show this to Lan, if you need Americans. NOt sure how willing he'd be able to do this, though, plus he doesn't have Neptune.

No one has Neptune, dummy; it's a HL2 mod they're making.

Yeah, sorry, should have made that clear for those who don't know me that well.

I wouldn't mind helping you out with one of the American voices, Lewis, but I have no acting experience and you have no reason to believe I'd be any good for your project :(
My voice sucks anyway.

Oh, well, pardon me, EmP. I knew it was a mod; I thught it had come out already. Didn't realize it was still in the development stage.

Oh, shiz, voice acting ftw, I'm actually quite interested in anything I can find as an aspiring voice actor, but being American and having not practiced with...certain accents...I can't be a glory whore and take said major character, so I'm good with an American role.
