    Technically this isn't video but it will be on Youtube as well as other places once up. I do Podcasts as much of my training from Uni. My main podcasting site is here, with examples of earlier work: PodOmatic | Profile - Namesake Productions
    .
    .
    Premise:
    The Autobot and Decepticon wars have expanded beyond Cybertron, Earth and into the entire galaxy leaving thousands of worlds destroyed in the crossfire and races wandering nomads trying to survive the apocalyptic battles.
    Finding themselves trapped in an isolated system hidden within a deadly Nebula, the EXILES are a group of outcast Cybertronians from both Autobot’s and Decepticon ranks, who opt to work together to make a new existence for themselves rather than return to face destruction for being thought traitors from either side.
    Their leader is the Seeker Thundercracker, who strives to find an ideal to fight for not tainted by the madness of the Decepticon pathos.
    His second is command is Slipstream who is on the run for being an embarrassment to her creator, Starscream.
    Together they lead their rag tag group against Bounty hunters, Autobot Zealots and galactic pirates to harvest the resources they need to survive and thrive in their little pocket of the universe.
    .
    Proposed first season: - (13 audio podcast episodes, 21-15 minutes long each)
    .
    Planned appearances by : Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, Optimus Prime, Ironhide and Jazz

    The completed podcast will have its own Webs.com page, Youtube channel and a PodOMatic hosting page, as well as art and concept work to go along with it all.

    Yes I do:

    Thundercracker – (leader)
    Voice - G1 type voice if possible
    Previous affiliation: Decepticon
    Alt mode: Cybertronian Jet, Star-sabre class – (Null rays)
    Primary weapon: Proton Pulse cannons
    Personality: Loves flying and a little contemptuous of grounded beings, but has a desire to protect innocent people; the ones under his command and not necessarily others.

    Slipstream – (second in command)
    Previous affiliation: Decepticon
    Alt mode: Cybertronian Jet, Axalon Class – Energon bubble protection
    Primary weapon: Penetrator Missile launchers
    Personality: Contemptible of undeserving leadership, especially Starscream’s and hates naivety.


    Whirl – (scientific expert)
    Voice - lighter version of Shockwave
    Previous affiliation: Autobot
    Alt mode: Cybertronian Vtol
    Primary weapon: Cybertronian gattling gun

    Personality: Calm and collected out of battle and scientifically minded. In combat, he becomes merciless and does not stop until all enemies have been totally destroyed.



    Stakeout – (liaison officer)
    Voice - typical cop or soldier
    Previous affiliation: Autobot
    Alt mode: Cybertronian enforcer car
    Primary weapon: Proton pistol – (one handed weapon)

    Personality: Steadfast and dedicated to the point of recklessness. Doesn’t want to forgive those who transgress against him


    Iguanus – (scout)
    Voice - Gollum like
    Previous affiliation: Decepticon
    Alt mode: -Lizard
    Primary weapon: Brute strength in lizard mode
    Personality: Violent and territorial, obsessed with lizards and other reptiles. Prefers to spend most of his time inside his dinosaur like alternate mode, only transforming to robot mode when absolutely necessary.



    Roadbuster – (heavy arsenal)
    Voice - gruff old soldier
    Previous affiliation: Autobot
    Alt mode: Cybertronian assault tank
    Primary weapon: (walking arsenal, sporting an Ion blaster, cybertronian gattling guns, missile launchers and a Plasma projectile launcher,)

    Personality: When not in battle, Roadbuster is quiet and often a bored individual. Deep down he feels he lacks purpose other than fighting but can’t help himself. He loves combat too much.

    Cool. I like the setup. And its actually pretty easy to write some episodes with your villains being these autobot commandos and space pirates.

    Worried that if I apply for to many roles all at once it will all Sound the same. But I'll see what I can do.

    Apply for as many as you like. Pilot episodes (opening saga) goes into production as soon as we have enough voice actors

    Just sent you an e-mail with some auditions, I forgot to mention in it, if you feel any of the voices would work for any other characters (ones you have posted or have ideas for the future), then cast as you see fit.

    The last role left to fill before production of the pilot story arc can begin is Skywarp.

    But beta readers, concept people and various other types of help would be appricated too
