Yeah, I want to know what day I'd have to reserve tickets for... after all, if the tickets are reserved months in advance I might not have to pay as much. ;)

Good question.  Let me look at my calendar, Cesar's calendar and Rich's calender and see when we can all get together.  In order for me to record the voices by March, I'll need to hold the auditions in January.  So right now, I'm saying the middle of January - somewhere in between the 10th - 20th.  Once I confirm with Cesar and Rich if this is at all possible, I'll schedule the auditions then.

And then I'll post them here!  :D

Yes, yes, confirm soon! Some of us have bosses that get cranky if you don't request needed time off at least a couple months in advance. :P ;)

January 20 is my first day back to classes, if the audition's around the 10th it will be oh so much more easier to go to. ;)

You'll all have to nudge Cesar and the writing team.  We need a finished script for the first part of the game.  Otherwise, I can't do the voice overs.  I want to start doing voice overs right after the auditions - mainly for those who flew, drove, swam into the city.  If I can get you guys in and out, that would be great!

If he can get me a finished script in time, I will have the auditiong on either January 8th or the 15th and may start recording some voices on the 16th.

Ok, I've gone out and bought a new microphone stand and mic screen.  I've got the software and the hardware.  Now all I need is to be a new HD so I can store all of the voice samples and I'll be all set to record the voices for the game at my house :D

Now if only Cesar could get that dialogue finished  :P ;D

You know, I just thought to ask... Mikey, you got any recommendations on where a person driving in should store their car, and how to get to your place via whatever passes for public transportation down there? I'm well versed in traversing my own city's and my hometown's bus systems, but I don't know anything about subways, or hailing taxis or anything. (Around here you call for taxis, or maybe pick one up at the bus station!)

Peace & Luv, Liz

If I were to stay the night, could I stay at your house Mike? ;D Even the semi-fancy hotels are atrocious in New York City. :P

Jeysie -

Storing a car is the difficult part - because finding a park spot is a pain in the a$$.  But transportation is plentiful in the city.  I live only a block away from a subway station.  And you can catch the train pretty much anywhere.  I can easily give you directions to getting to my house.  If you drive, you'll have to leave your car parked on the street (garages will cost a fortune - it's cheaper to get a hotel for the night than it is to store your car for the night) - so make sure you have a club and an alarm - no, we really don't have much crime in our neighborhood - but I see all of the cars parked outside of my apartment have clubs (and I'm always woken up by their damn alarms going off - all because some kids are playing ball in the street - but I've never seen a broken window :)).
Where are you coming from Jeysie?

Oldbushie - you can stay at my place - providing I don't have a full house (let's say a number of you come down on a weekend to record).  I don't have THAT much room ;).  But Rich and a friend of his stayed at my place for the weekend and that worked out well.

And yes, I was originally going to rent time at a recording studio for the game.  But when Cesar showed me the amount of dialogue, I knew I'd never have enough money to do this.  I'd have to keep renting the studio every time someone came to town to record - and, if there are rewrites, they'd have to come back and record some more.  We're talking aroudn $50- 75 per hour - and that's at a friend's discounted price.  You figure it's going to take me at least 40 hours - probably more - that's a total of $2000 - 3000.  I don't know about you, but I don't have that kind of money ;).  If only we were getting paid for this - he he he.

Hmm. We have a club, but no alarm. Oh, well, we'll figure something out. Honestly, my roomie wants to take a bus up, but I just don't have any money right now, and I don't want him paying for me. :P

Where are you coming from Jeysie?

Springfield, Massachusetts, if that helps any.

So, this is a more-than-one-day thing that weekend? Hmm... boy, this is getting complicated! ;) Although seeing as how I've driven up and back 2.5 hours before just to go to a three-hour barbershop show, I guess it's not that big a deal. :)

Peace & Luv, Liz

Oops. Are you going to wait that long to give a definite audition date? That could cause some problems...

Nope.  I've gotten him to commit to January 10th.  Now I just have to see if Rich can be there that weekend.  Once I know that, I'll let you know.  If he's ok, the auditions are Jan. 10th.
