Now hello there friends. I know I've tried this like, what , two othe rtimes??? But don't worry i'm gonna try my best to stick with this one.
Free! ,also known as the swimming anime for those who heard of it way before they announced it'd being an anime, is an on going anime that was released quite recently actually (two or three weeks ago I think. An episode comes out ever Wednesday and right now it's on episode 4)
Like the name suggests, the anime is about a swim club. The main characters are all male and actually, it's geared more towards females (it has quite a bit of female fanservice) and this has upset many males who believe that the anime is objectifying men and setting unrealistic standards for men as well
Even though they have much more fanservice for them, with women with boobs that are no where near realistic (they're gravity defying boobs i don't even kno wjsdhlaf)
like holyshit, the free! characters have realistic swimmers' builds holy ****
the only thing they don't have are nipples
you see any nipples there, friend? No. I don't think so.
I decided, hey why not try to create and abridged series for this anime. It actually can be turned into comedy gold. I mean, it's actually kinda funny already, especially with the main characters obsession with water/swimming (aka that guy up there)
----------------------------- Now then, What we'll be needing!!!
SOME KINDA CO-MANAGER. PREFERABLY ONE THAT ISN'T IN HIGHSCHOOL LIKE ME.
Here is a brief description of each occupation i guess???? (do i even call it an occupation)
Voice actors: It's pretty self explanatory. Basically you provide the voices for whatever character you voice. You don't have to be very experienced with it though it's rad if you do! It's not necessary for you to be able to change your voice to create all types of voices! Not everyone can do that! I know I can't. If you can do one or two different voice then you're golden to me really! Plus, maybe you'll be able to widen the possibilities by voice acting for this.
Script Writers: I'll really only be needing two or three writers. I'm no good at creating comedy gold. Only just maybe supplying a couple ideas and pointing out things that might not actually be appropriate jokes (rape jokes, for example, not appropriate. Don't want to see them unless it involves calling out a character for making an inappropriate joke like that or something similiar) The job itself is self explanatory. You writers are in charge of creating the script! The reason I want more than one is so that more ideas are provided and that you can also edit the script as a group and that there are more opinions.
Video Editor: Basically, your job is to add in effects into the video and sync the voice recordings with the video footage of the episode were doing (The lip syncing I think will be fairly difficult). You're basically one of the most important people in this production, because without you, we won't have a good looking abridged series. (seriously, you can find some series that have a good script, but poor video editing n such). Decent knowledge/skill of video editing would be required. I wouldn't want to drop all the responsibility on a person who's just starting out with video editing!!!
CO-Manager: Really self explanatory. I feel like I'll need someone to take charge whenever I'm not able to be around for things ya know? I'd prefer if the person who took this position was out of highschool already, or at least has a decent amount of free time!!

Like I mentioned earlier, many of the characters are male. The only characters in that list that aren't male are the last two. As you can tell, there isn't much room for female voices. Which sucks a whole bunch, but that doesn't mean there can't be any female voices. There will side characters and all those back ground characters that show up! So female voices are still needed! The only male character out of the list that can possibly be substituted with a female voice is Nagisa Mainly cause he's a shota thing look at him
(Though there are some stills of him where he looks kinda seme)
I suggest you watch the first episode before auditioning for one of the roles!!!! It'll help you get an idea of what kinda interesting/funny voice you could have the character sound like!!!!!!!!!
SO HOW DO YOU AUDITION ANYWAY? ? ??
WELL LET ME TELL U FOLKS
First of all, it must be a recording. The only exception would be is if you add me on skype, and audition in a skype call. I would much rather prefer a recording as it helps compare voices to others n such.
Recordings must be in either .wav or .mp3 format.
Use the subtitles in the anime as lines for your auditions (At least three to four lines)
For now, you can only audition as one character.
They can be sent to me either through skype or through email My skype name is: dangantoppagurrenronpa My Email is: email@example.com
IF YOU WANT TO ONE OF THE THREE WRITERS, THEN WATCH THE EPISODE AND THEN GIVE A SHORT EXAMPLE BY WRITING SOME POSSIBLE LINES FOR A CHARACTER.
You'll be able to audition as more than one character after we've finished the first episode at least. ANYONE WANTING TO AUDITION AS REI WILL HAVE TO WATCH EPISODE THREE. HE ISN'T AN IMPORTANT MAIN CHARACTER TILL THEN ANYWAY. (He pretty much only has like one or two lines in the second episode)
For now, the cast we'll have now will also be used for background characters.
Episode two and three introduces some re-occurring and still important side characters. So once we finish episode one, I'll re-open auditions for those characters uvu
HOPEFULLY SOME PEOPLE AUDITION!!! WE WILL NEED AT LEAST ONE WRITER, VIDEO EDITOR, AND NAGISA/HARUKA/RIN/MAKOTO/GOU (all five) BEFORE WE START WORKIN ON THE FIRST EPISODE
