auditions

xcaboosertrvb  asked:

It's not necessarily a question about auditioning, but how do your headcanons work? Like for things that are canon in your universe, do you guys have to discuss it altogether before continuing? And how do us, who audition, go about that? Could we write anything even if it's the complete opposite of your canon? Sorry if this is confusing in any way and thank you in advance!

Hi there! I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly in case anyone else had a similar question :)

When it comes to bigger plotlines like the Valentine’s Day Mavin series which might be spread over multiple posts, the people involved would discuss how it played out in advance, either privately or in our group Discord server so the rest of us could have some input. If it affected every character then the same idea would apply just to make sure that everyone knows where they stand and how to play their part.

With smaller headcanons/events I think it’s okay to have some creative freedom - when we first started writing Ray’s Walmart adventure, for example, I didn’t clear the bet idea with Dave before we started but they were happy to go along with it.

That said, I don’t think we necessarily have one overarching ‘canon’ series of events? We write these little snapshots of the crew’s lives but we wouldn’t necessarily limit what we can or can’t write based on old chats, if that makes sense? 

It’s the same for the shippy stuff - some people prefer to just read the ‘gen’ posts so they don’t take our Shippy Sunday posts as canon, which is totally okay!

As for your audition question, I think it’s safe to say that if you have a particular plot idea for one of your chats you’re welcome to include it and if anyone has a problem with it they’ll raise it privately.

Sorry this answer got away from me a little but I hope what I’ve said makes sense! If any of the other mods have something to add they’ll reblog this post :)

EDIT: A little input from our lovely Jack, Mod M:

#basically this :) #our canon is very scattered #and some headcanons and running gags develop over time #but they’re mostly character specific if that makes sense? #like how geoff always adds staches to his smileys

StiB Danny Phantom Open Audition - Danny
Hey there! My name’s Brendan “Jello” Blaber and I make a series of semi-animated parodies called So This is Basically! Each episode pokes fun at a different franchise, be it a cartoon, game, or anime. The current video I’m working on is for Danny Phantom, a superhero cartoon about ghosts that ran...

Hey there, voice actors! I’m holding a small open audition for the role of Danny Phantom in an upcoming parody I’m making! Details in the document.

This is a paid role! DEADLINE MAY 11TH!

Recommended Obscure Musicals of the Week

1. Be More Chill
- Imagine “13” and “Little Shop of Horrors had a love-child. ‘Nuff said. Also, teen depression metaphors and a hype, funny soundtrack. (Lots of great audition songs)

2. Fortress of Solitude
- "Hairspray” and “Motown”’s love-child. But better. Lots of roles for POC. Lots of roles for teens.

3. Nine
Not super obscure, but really dark, twisted, and comedic. Definitely under-appreciated. There are lots of beautiful ballads here that I never see at auditions

4. Edges
A Pasek and Paul (team behind “Dear Evan Hansen). Emotional abuse themes. Basically a masterpiece.

5. A Man of No Importance
The only Ahrens and Flaherty that no one knows. So very Broadway, and one of their best. It’s about theatre and every-day struggles. It’s really lovely.

6. Vanities
Just listen to "Fly Into the Future” and get back to me.

7. Cops
If you haven’t already heard of “The Sensitive Song”….I don’t know what you’ve been doing. Basically it’s the best guy audition song ever, especially if you’re going in for something not-so-kosher.

So I made a quick animatic explaining how I got to Goron City in Zelda Breath of the Wild! I didn’t know about elixirs or anything, so I just ate all my food to replenish my hearts while I ran to the city on fire, I thought it was silly.

And now I need 2 voices! I’m being cheap so this isn’t a paid thing, I’m sorry ); but I’ll credit you in the description and link your social medias and stuff!

I basically need Link screaming hysterically, and he has one fast sentence; 

“OH MY GOD I KNOW SHUT UP [and] GIVE ME ARMOR!” 

While the Goron has 2; I want him to speak slowly and sound kind of dopey.

“Hey.. You’re a Hylian, you better put some armor on or else you’ll burn.“ (Probably won’t hear the whole sentence, Link interrupts him)

“You don’t have enough rupees”

Link doesn’t have to sound like Link, I’m looking for a more silly kind of screaming, not a realistic scream of a man burning to death. Unless someone can make that funny.. The timing of those sentences does not have to match the timing of the video, I can adjust that.

I’d like his screams to match the timing though, if you can. Link stuffs his face every few seconds, and it might be weird to yell then make a chomp sound then yell then chomp again, so if the constant pausing diminishes the quality of your scream, just try to do a few long screams, and a few chomping sounds and I can try to edit it to fit :) B

I’d also like good quality sound please, here’s a video Ricepirate made explaining how to make the most of your mic if you don’t know how!

You can send your auditions to terminalmontage@gmail.com ! Thank you guys :D
