Cast List Mantis - Zack Lawrence Drill Sergeant - Gabriel Jean Bigmos - Geist Seig Tonbot - Daniel Ross Scissorboy - Chris Jones Drillnuts - Gabriel Jean Powerhug - Zach Dyer Hydra - Nathaniel Chambers Hydra's Drone - Holly Tipton Scrambled Voice - Sabina Betschke Congratulations to everyone who got a part! Thanks to everyone who auditioned... it was an almost overwhelming amount of you. It was the most female auditions we've ever had. If you didn't get a part here, there are dozens of characters left on to audition in each series. And here is the original post! Auditions Closed! Hey everyone, it's audition time! We've got a lot of characters to audition for our fan dubs here, but if you don't get one... there's still a lot more to go! We have some for both male and female voices, which isn't always the case when you're dubbing Transformers. We have fan dubs available of Victory, Beast Wars Second, Beast Wars Neo, Robotmasters, Scramble City, Zone... over 40 episodes all told! To check out our work, please visit http://www.tfcog.com. Also, we have bit parts, episode parts and regular parts. If you're not looking to commit to a long deal, please don't audition for the Insectrons. Please record all the lines listed for each character. I have provided screen caps for each character and a Japanese voice sample of all of the major characters as a rough guideline. Send all auditions to bwill(at)cogeco.ca. Preferably zipped. Save the files in MP3 format if possible. File attributes should be something like 44000Hz, 128kbps, mono -- although I'm far from strict on this. Name the files CharacterName_YourName_Line#.mp3. Deadline is Sunday, July 8. Now, on to auditions. AUDITIONS Beast Wars Second Scrambled VoiceFirst, we have a bit part... a scrambled female voice. Needs to sound ominous, with no emotion. Send in clips of gibberish, about 5-10 seconds in length. Maximal Drill Sergeant The drill sergeant only has a couple of lines in episode 5. Unsurprisingly, he needs to sound strong and military-like. The character is only seen briefly, at a distance and in silhouette, so you won't need to match any mouth flaps. "Gutless cowards! This is no drill! Don't help anyone but yourself!" Mantis Mantis is a semi-regular character and the leader of the Insectron faction in Beast Wars Second. Most of his appearances happen around episodes 6-12 or so. Looking for something strong, tough and maybe even slightly crazy (in an angry sort of way). He is a loner, despite being the leader of the group and would rather live in peace than fight, so getting caught in the middle of the Maximal-Predacon war angers him. His alternate mode should be obvious by his name. "I am Mantis of the Insectrons and I look forward to challenging you one day!" "The time for talking is over!" "Those who threaten our lives are our enemies!" Japanese Voice Sample Bigmos Bigmos is a mosquito. His voice should be deep and a little deliberate. He's always seen with Tonbot, who is pretty much the opposite of him. "We can't let them live, Tonbot." "Maximals, I believe we had a bit of a miscommunication." Japanese Voice Sample Tonbot Tonbot ('tawn-bot') is loud and obnoxious. Has a high pitched voice. If I was to compare him to a character in the original Beast Wars series, it would be Waspinator. I'm not looking for a Waspy impression, but maybe something equally as obnoxious. "Please help me! Please!" "Wow, you Maximals are amazing!" "We thought we'd finally found peace, then these guys had to come and ruin it for us!" Japanese/Engrish Voice Sample Scissorboy Scissorboy is the teenage/young member of the Insectrons. I'm looking for a young voice, but more of a medium sounding young voice, nothing too high. "Are you still working on that stupid thing?" "I had this dream about you last night, so I was hoping I'd run into you sometime!" Japanese Voice Sample Drillnuts Drillnuts is the scientist of the Insectrons. He always has gadgets that may or may not be any good, especially a device that detects rage. Looking for something that sounds "smart." I picture him with an English accent, but a Harvard lockjaw or some other similar sounding accent may also be worth a try. He doesn't need an accent, he just needs to sound intelligent. Has a medium voice. "Look, what it does is it detects one's level of hostility." "I've got bigger fish to fry. A missile I made myself didn't explode! I don't see why..." Japanese Voice Sample Powerhug Powerhug is a goofy character. He's big and not really the brightest, so he should have a deep, slow voice. He likes to roll up into a ball and roll down hills until he loses control. No mouth, so it will be easy to synch the lines. "Aaaarrrgghhhh! Help! I'm out of control!" "And defy the code? Never. The only way I fight is like a true insect!" Japanese Voice Sample Beast Wars Neo Hydra Hydra mostly appears in episode 12 (we're on 11 right now), but appears later on in the series. He likes making bad puns and he thinks he's funnier than he is. He is an old friend of Ramhorn's and is jealous of his success. Magmatron has put him incharge of the fortress planet Porcupine which has the population of 2 -- Hydra and his drone. "Lord Magmatron, you'll never believe it, sir. The Maximals have requested landing on Porcupine!" "I'll need some help. Send one of your troops in and we'll take their ship out." "Haaaaahahahahahaha!" Japanese Voice Sample Hydra's Drone Female voice. Needs to sound plain like a computer but still have an underlying sense of humour. Doesn't have a mouth, so there's not a lot of difficulty in synching lines. I'm relatively sure she's just in the one episode. "With these new spaceships being built into Porcupine, it will truly be the most powerful fortress planet that has ever existed." Japanese Voice Sample That's it for auditions.
