Now to either convince my dad to let me go to NYC alone or to convince him to come with me. ;) Or I could drag my best friend into coming with me, but he doesn't like to spend money. Though he does have all the KQ games.

So Mike, what are the prerequisites to getting a main part for the voices? I've been acting for a while and I'm soooo anxious to try out! I live in NJ and I'm not that far from NYC, so getting there shouldn't be a problem, I just need directions. Also, I'm going away on Jan 10 - 18, so
PLEASE don't schedule the recording then!!!!

Welcome! ;D

You may be out of luck for getting to auditions, as they can't be held any earlier (unless Cesar pulls the rest of his dialogues out of his butt in one night ;)) and things get really busy after January. There's always online auditions, so don't worry if you can't make it to the real auditions. Besides, I'm sure we'll all have a giant party as soon as KQ9 is done anyways, so you'll get to meet everyone then. ;)

Course I'm a bit biased myself, school starts up for me around the 20th, any later and I might have troubles getting to the auditions. Might not be too bad though, as I only have classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next semester.

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.




OMG I wanna invade mike's house too :P !!

As long as I have a 4x6 foot spot on the floor to sleep on, I'll be fine. I can bring my sleeping bag. ;D Oh, and I checked with my dad, and he says it's okay that I go to NYC alone as long as I bring his cellphone, make sure I know exactly where I'm going, and have a definite plan of where to stay. Also, Mike, I'll pay you $25 a night board and room if there's room for me. :)

Oh man!  My place is turning into a hotel.  I'm going to have people sleeping in my hallway too!  Oh boy!  Of course, if a bunch of you coordinate it, you can rent a room at a hotel here in the city and split the cost.  I'm not sure how many people I can squeeze into my apartment - we're talking a NY apartment here.

But, as far as auditions go:  Yes, it's going to be January 10th (I'm sorry, Jon.  But that's really the only date I can do it).  And it may spill over to Jan. 17th if there are TONS of people auditioning.  We are drafting an official notice with all of the info.  It will also have online audition information.  So those of you who can't make it, not to worry (that means you, Jon).  I will also take into account those who can't make it to auditions but can come to my house at another date to record - this could put you in the running for a larger role (I can just see everyone furiously looking at their calendars and bank accounts).

Oh, and you don't have to prepare anything.  Sides will be provided.  If you have a head shot and resume - great, bring it along.  If not, no biggie, the audition will be video taped (so we can remember who you are ;)).

So consider this the "unofficial" announcement.  The official will be posted as soon as the back end stuff is completed (ftp site is setup, email addresses for audition info, new HD for voice recordings ;) stuff like that)

Well, I doubt you'll have to worry about me and my roomie. The trip is a bit lengthy, but no worse than I've done before in one day. I swear, when I vacationed in Michigan for a week, I spent more time in the car than I did out of it. :P And there was the 12-hour drive to Maryland that one time, which was pretty icky. And I've driven out and back to the Boston area for an all-day barbershop convention before, which is only a slightly shorter distance, I believe. So barring a blizzard of epic proportions, we're good. So that should only leave you one extra. Well, you can stuff the smallest one in the bathtub. ;)

And it's a good thing you have two setups. Because if my roomie and I both get parts... well, you get stuck with both of us at the same time. ;D

Peace & Luv, Liz

Sounds like a plan! Though unless we have girls and guys in one hotel room ;), we may have to let the ladies stay at Mike's place. 3 people in a hotel room should be fine, I can sleep on the rollaway bed if I'm at a hotel. I'm willing to put up with a hotel, but I would prefer to stay at the house.

Who *really* *really* wants to stay at Mike's house and will not dare step forth into a hotel?

We could always send Cesar, Rich, and Harrison to the htoel. I'm sure they have plenty of money. ;D

Oh, and I think I found a ride for 100 bucks, cheaper than the airport. It just depends on whether the guy can get out of work (if he has any at the time) and whether his girlfriend will be in Connecticut.

So January 10 is definite now right?

Oops. I should have been more clear in my post... barring weather nasty enough to strand everybody, Harrison and I will likely not need any overnight lodgings at all... we can drive home, and come back the next day if necessary. (Out of curiousity, how many days will this encompass, exactly? He's requested that Friday off, and always has Saturdays off, but he works Sundays, too.)

Not to mention the fact that... Mikey may get a lot of people to this thing... at least, one hopes, or he's going to be stuck with whomever shows up. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz

Well, I know at least one friend of mine from NYC who is also interested in auditioning :)  So that's one! And possibly some friends from home here, too.

Heee! So exciting! I gotta figure out I'm getting there now...

I have an online pal from Michigan who wants to try to come, otherwise I know she'll want to do the online auditions. ;D

It's possible Harrison and I might be able to drag along a friend of ours with us, but I'm not sure yet.

I don't want it to turn into the KQ2+ voice overs from Tierra - most of them were pretty bad (sorry, Tierra - the game was fantastic, but the voice overs weren't so hot).

SACRILEGE!!!  :o
You'd better hope your teammate Kurt won't see this  ;)
And if you think KQ2+ voices were bad, you should have heard KQ5's  :P

Mike -
Good luck with getting on that show!!

KQ5 is wonderful compared to some games and even some movies. There a some people out there who are *really* *really* bad at voice acting, as well as bad at sounding convincing rather than just spitting out lines. :P

My, what have I started ::)

But you are right, KQ5 had some really bad voiceovers as well.  It wasn't until KQ6 that they hired professional actors - they learned from their mistakes and I shall learn from Tierra's mistakes ;).  Hey, I'm only saying a lot of the Tierra VOs were not very professional - but we're talking about a fan game, here.  I want our fan game to sound more professional - so I've got the whip and the brass knuckles and will use them to inspire my actors through FEAR!!!!  MWAA HAA AA HAA HAA HAA!!!! FLY MY PRETTYS, FLY!!!!!!!!  I will use the Killer Monkeys to strike fear in their hearts so their voice overs will be AMAZING!!!!! HA HA AH AHA HA HA

Honestly, I will do my best to make the acting good (gently, not violently, of course).
