Attention Aspiring Voices

2009-02-12 13:01:39 by sirjeffofshort

To all of the undiscovered voice talent out there, there is a new Voice acting contest being held in the forums for which Bill (Maverick32183) and myself with be helping to judge along with FatKidWitAJetPak (The organizer of the contest.) DYLawryence and yes... Tomamoto

The contest will (in all hopes) be a monthly challenge, this month's challenge being to use this line at the end or beginning of a story that you make up.

"And that's why I don't have my homework"

For a great example you can check out the current #1 weekly audio submission made by FatKidWitAJetPak

The prize list is as of yet incomplete however there is talk of trying to get the top 3 winners mentioned in a front page post to promote them and, although it is not yet an official prize, I am offering a GUEST ROLE IN A "SKETCHED" CARTOON to the contest winner... Say whaaaaaaat? Haha, I know it might not be the greatest of prizes, but it's a start.

For a complete list of rules and everything visit the contest thread.

...In other news, I'm working my head off on the new Sketched so it should be ready for early March, and we are gearing up to work on our super secret project (that's really not that big of a secret).

I will leave you now, with a video my friends made many moons ago in High School that is a personal favorite of Bill (maverick) and myself due to its complete lack of decency.

Till next time.

Hey thanks a lot for dedicating your front page post to this. ;) I have one in a couple of days, so I will mention pretty much the same thing you did.

I hope we get some nice submissions. We already have one REALLY nice one so check out the forums every now and then and listen to the entries. You don't have to review them or anything, I will do that.

Once the deadline hits, I will contact all judges and we will decide who the winner is.

Thanks again for offering this great prize. ;)

sirjeffofshort responds:

No problem, I had nothing worthwhile of my own to post about anyway. Besides, I've worked up to one a week and that's way more front page coverage than I need.

I'll take a look at the current entries and check back for more as time passes, so just let me know when the deadline is reached.

No problem with the prize, thank YOU for putting up such a sorely needed contest. I'm all for the idea of promoting new voice talent on NG.

You just gave Hannibal Lecter free roam of your house. That's a costly mistake.

sirjeffofshort responds:

That's how we role, hardcore yo. At least they weren't in the same room as him anymore though.

It wasn't his house hahaha this is just some kids we know. But I will post a similar announcement as well.

sirjeffofshort responds:

Yes, unfortunately we had nothing to do with the cinematic masterpiece that is known to the world as "Slam Dunk Vomit." We actually didn't meet the director until years after this was made and he was already making more high quality yet equally disturbing films.

DYLawryence? Dylan + Lawrence = Dylawrence :3
(I've got to change my Newgrounds username someday)

Well, if everybody else is Front page posting about this, then I guess I will jump on the bandwagon too. If I had a decent mic I would enter the contest, but Judging is just as fun!

sirjeffofshort responds:

And that ladies and gentlemen, is your judgment panel. Haha.

I agree with you on the judging. I think this is going to be a really fun contest.

hey you never replied to my heavily written message!!! i guess it would have been more reliable to do it thru email. we gotta get chatting again :D

I'm actually not bad on the voice acting part, but same as some of these poor souls, the lack of a quality mic leaves me empty with nothing left but


sirjeffofshort responds:

"Some may call it bulimia, but I call it success." Haha.

I don't think I ever got your message. We definitely need to keep in touch though. Shoot me an e-mail.

I never thought your voice acting was very bad, but the mic thing was a little obvious (doh!) Anyways, hope all is well. Rock on.
