Open Call for PAID Voice Acting for indie Visual Novel/Adventure Game: Herald

Hey Tumblr!

We need your help finding talented voice actors for Herald: An Interactive Period Drama! We’ve already had quite a few applicants so far, but we hope to still discover some talent via tumblr. A reblog would be greatly appreciated!

Because the representation of the ethnic backgrounds of our characters is very important to the story of the game, the distinct accent of each actor will be a key factor in the selection process. This is why we greatly prefer actors who share a background with the character that they audition for.

All actors and actresses are allowed to send in their voice-reel, but to give an idea of what we are looking for, please see if you fit one of the following profiles:

  1. Young men around the age of 20 to 30, preferably with a mid to low-pitched voice, who are able to convey a convincing London English accent. Preferably native speakers. Actors with Pakistani, Indian or Indo-Surinamese ancestry are greatly preferred.
  2. Women around the age of 20 to 60, preferably with a mid to low-pitched voice, who are able to convey a convincing Indian English accent. Preferably native speakers. Actresses with Indian or Indo-Surinamese ancestry are greatly preferred.
  3. Men around the age of 25 to 50, with a mid to low-pitched voice, who are able to convey a convincing French/British English accent. Preferably native speakers. Actors with African ancestry are greatly preferred.
  4. Young women around the age of 20 to 30, with a mid to high-pitched voice, who are able to convey a convincing London English accent. Preferably native speakers.
  5. Young men around the age of 14 to 20, with a mid to high-pitched voice, who are able to convey a convincing Scottish English accent. Preferably native speakers.
  6. Men around the age of 25 to 70, with a high to low-pitched voice, who are able to convey one of the following accents: London English, Brazilian Portuguese, North Carolinian English or Swiss German. Actors are preferably native speakers.

All voice-overs have to be recorded in and around the month of July.  
All roles are paid for with a price between 20,- to 50,- Euros per hour, excluding VAT. The exact price of which we will determine per actor, based on their personal experience and the importance of the part in question.

Please send your voice-reel to jobs@wispfire.com and use “Herald voice-acting” in the title of your e-mail. Please tell us which of the profiles your voice fits by specifying the corresponding nummer(s), and please let us know what your native language is. All voice-reels must contain English sentences to be selected.

Based on the entries we will make a selection of actors that we believe best fit each character, afterwards we will contact actors personally to discuss the part with them.

Thank you for your interest and please share!
