So friend of mine and I were Skypin’ it up the other night and I went on some tangent about Aku going through a midlife crisis post-season 4, leading up to the events in Season 5. This struck friend-Mason as particularly funny so he decided to turn my inane rant into art.
Black History Month (Year 3) | Day 7 | Phil LaMarr
Phil LaMarr is a graduate of Yale University where he
founded the improv comedy group, Purple Crayon. In 1989, he became a
member of the award winning sketch comedy group, The Groundlings. LaMarr
also studied improv at The Secondy City and at the Improv Olympic.
Through his connections within his improv network, he was able to start a
film career—-his first movie being “It’s Pat”, in 1994. He has also appeared in a plethora of tv shows before it started his voice acting career—such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, “Hanging with Mr. Cooper”, “MADtv”, “Living Single”, and more. He’s even had a role in the popular cult classic Tarantino Film, “Pulp Fiction”.
the meat of his work is within the cartoon and video-game industry.
Name a cartoon right now, go ahead. Did you do it? Yeah, he’s been in
that. LaMarr has led an impressive voice acting career, his most notable
roles being Jack (Samurai Jack), Static Shock (Static Shock), Hermes Conrad (Futurama), Wilt (Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends), Green Lantern (Justice League).
LaMarr is set to reprise his role as Samurai Jack for the show’s fifth and final season, this March.
This is for the sad Ereri shippers discouraged by the hate. I know this is really outdated since this Zenkaikon panel took place back in 2015 but I just wanted to remind the fandom of the brighter and more positive side of shipping. That cutie pie in the middle is Trina Nishimura, the English dub voice actress of our beloved Mikasa. When a Jean cosplayer asked who she, along with Lauren Landa (Annie’s VA) and Matthew Mercer (Levi’s VA), shipped in the show, she replied that she shipped Levi and Eren, much to the surprise of many.
Notice that she didn’t address the age gap issue, power dynamics, and the famous controversial courtroom scene. She just simply told what she liked about the aspect of Levi and Eren being in a romantic relationship. I’m not sure if she still ships them, but if she doesn’t, that’s okay. Let’s just appreciate the fact that she left us this little gem and assured us that not all people see this ship as gross or abusive in any way.
We decided to take the plunge and try to feature voice acting in Vicboys: A datingsim set in the Victorian age.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
Vicboys is set in the Victorian Age. So we’ll be looking for British voice actors or people who can pull off a British accent.
We have a wide set of over 25 characters, from young children to old people.
It’s a commercial project.
We can only offer you full credit and experience. (Any other payment methods like an exchange of services can be discussed.)
The sprites will be revealed after de demo. Once you get cast you will be able to see the whole sprite and we’ll send you more background information on the character(s).
You’ have until 11:59pm on the 31st of May - Central European Time [UTC + 1] to send your submission.
HOW TO APPLY
If you meet these requirements please follow these steps:
Find a character from the images below that you want to audition for. We encourage you to try out for multiple characters. We’ve got a lot of them after all!
We want all the applicants to at least say the following lines for every character they’d like to audition for: “Hello, I’m [name]. I’m a character from the upcoming datingsim: Vicboys.” But feel free to add on to this or change it to your liking. We also believe it’s important to give voice actors the freedom to improvise. This is something we’d like to pursue in the final production as well.
Please record yourself with a decent microphone and send your files to firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Vicboys voice acting” in the title of your e-mail.
