Avatar Nation (Future Project): Casting Call
« on: September 25, 2011, 04:50:33 pm »


There is a project of mine that has been simmering on the back burner for the past year or so and I've recently deciding to start dedicating time to this, as I wish not to burn out on my other loves. So, there is a very specific and special need, to complete this project, that only the members of this forum can actually meet.

First off, let me state that this project, although having had a year's off-time's thought put into this, is still very early in its production. This post is merely to see if anyone is interested as of this moment, and to give those whom would be interested in the future, time to prepare for the parts that I need.

So basically, I am reinvigorating the Audio Drama that I had begun back when I was with Radio Avatar. I have decided to take a huge majority of the parts to be done locally so as I can control the audio quality of what is being recorded. The only issue I have with that, is there is almost no one I know locally that can speak and pronounce Na'vi to the level that I am looking for. This is where the community comes into play.

I am looking for speakers of Na'vi, to act as either an AVTR translator or as Native Na'vi Tribe's people to fill roles in an Audio Drama. If you don't know what an audio drama is, look to things like the original broadcast of The Ward of the Worlds, or even the audio dramas of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

The requirements I am looking for are as follows:
  • Can pronounce Na'vi in an intermediate/expert level
  • Has knowledge of the language itself (Understands meaning and syntax)
  • Has access to a good microphone (built in mics are not acceptable)
  • Has good internet access and access to Audacity recording program
  • Can commit at least 1-2 hours a week on this when we get started
  • Is ok dealing with a very nit picky director
  • Must be at least 18 years old, or 16/17 with parents permission (stupid legal issues, and yes your parents -will- sign a waiver/agreement)
The requirements are solid requirements. No exceptions. There may be others added later, but these are the bare minimum.

So, if you think you meet that requirement, and would be interested in being apart of this project, fill out the info below, post it here in this thread, and I'll check back to see what kind of an interest we have.  

(Copy the info inside the code, paste it to your response box for this thread, enter in the information within the BBcode, and it'll format to what I want it to be.)

How many do you need? Perhaps try posting on FB each day in the hopes that somebody will notice it?

Speaking of FB, there's someone there (new to me, I haven't seen them before) who can speak very well! Or at least, they can write very well, I've seen there posts and it blew me away! I can message them and tell them about this...I'll just need time to translate the OP. Idk how good their English is...I believe they're in Italy. I'll message them when I can, I'm really busy with school right now.

It'll be a simple release document, thats all. I'll send you the digital copy, have your parents sign it, and then fax/mail it back to me kinda thing. If you have interest just go ahead and sign up here to let me know anyways.

Kaltxì!
I got a question: could anyone explain this to me: "Is ok dealing with a very nit picky director"
I don't get the meaning of this :/

but anyway I can't offer 1-2h per week permanently ... why this needs so much time? for what and for how many weeks?

Just the level of product that I want this to be is going to be held to a very high standard. So... I'm going to be nit picky about certain vocal inflections, emotional undertones, and quality of recording. Things like that. Like if a line is to be "sad" then it needs to sound, "sad". etc etc

What I wrote for time needed to dedicate to this was really the far end of the spectrum. I'm trying to attract a crowd that would be at least a little serious when it comes to this thing. Really I don't see it taking more than like... 1-2 weeks of 1-2 hr session. And those will be spaced out depending on role/episode releases.
