So….do we just cast our votes here, in the form of responses?

By the way, congrats on all the hard work you're putting into this project! You've already got at least eight parts filled for sure. :)

WHAT? That's a lame ass excuse, OFaV! Some of the other people auditioning don't have “american” accents. And when it comes right down to it, I don't have a perfect “american” accent either, I have a southern accent. So if I can try out, you sure as heck can.

Go for it. Seriously. D:<

hmm, what you need is a cape. A cape fixes everything.

Ally will send you a cape, and then you can do the SFX! (dunno bout the men grunting. could be fun to run around with a mic and try to record That one)


OFaV - The Caped SFX Wundah!! This is Great! Why didn't someone think of this sooner??!!!

— (wildebeests voting)

well, if anyones feel their vote is SO private, they can PQ me, that's fine. Otherwise I think votes/preferences can be posted here.

I retain czarina rights to interpret anything that is vague, so beware, vague-posters.

ALSO - we should have WAY MORE competition if even only half the people who said they'd send in recordings did so. Where are these lame ducks?

ARE AMERICAN POLITICIANS the base membership of DD??!! *it would explain so much*

As soon as I get my hands on a working microphone and some software, I'll try it out.
With me getting a new laptop, I am still trying to figure out which programs to use.

Any suggestions for good recording software?

Thanks, I'll check it out!

Anyone in particular you need a voice for? Otherwise I'll just try a few :)
(I hope it's not a problem I'm not a native English speaker)

@Fools&Vikings: You should keep trying. I'd love to work alongside you! (Big fan of your comic. Same goes for NickyP =D

I reserve the right to change these votes if new contenders add their submissions!!!

As of right now:

MAXWELL #3
BETTY #1
WOMAN IN LINE #2

I believe those are the only ones that require voting as of yet…

And let's see….

NARRATOR #3
DANGERFIELD #1
EUGENE…. Oh gosh, I like both of them so much… um… Gonna have to go with EUGENE #1
JANITOR #2

Oh, and here's some sound effects for you:

You never know, I could have quietly sent in a submission ;)

Maxwell 4 is… something else, alright. It's so wrong, that it's actually right. I wouldn't be surprised if that voice won simply for the amusement factor. I enjoyed Eugene 2, whoever did it really tried to capture some Jimmy Stewart; and it worked! Good stuff! WomanInLine 2.. admit it; you do voicework for radio, right? Because you could have fooled me if you didn't. Also, our sole female answering machine is rather solid.

Oh god, Maxwell try out #4 GIVE THAT MAN A PRIZE.


I had head phones in an high volume, and when it started I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

Alright, I'll have a go, hahaha, Ally convinced me to try again, and Yes Ayes, I did go and find a “cape” which was really just a bright red jumper tied around my shoulders and recorded a few. I'll send them in shortly. :D

Maxwell #4 is a hoot, but I don't think I could listen to an entire radio show of him.

I could. I'm addicted to it.

Also…

I sent in my recordings, and I'm afraid I was very very silly

:)

I think that Janitor#2 should actually be Eugene, it sounds more… Fuddy Duddy old man then Janitor.

OH and who ever did Maxwell#3 Far out, they were great (actually, all of that guy try outs were awesome).

But I still think maxwell#4 has my heart hahaha.

Whee, sent one in! I think my voice is rather generic though. ^^;
