Practicing Voice Acting on Swallows and Amazons

Today I practiced on parts of "Swallows and Amazons" for my voice acting. The Swallows and Amazons book series is really good, so I thought it might be fun to practice on.

Here's a part of Swallows and Amazons 'Pigeon Post' book on page 190:

This is the part I read:

"  "Did he say anything?" asked Dorothea.

   "What happened?" asked Titty.

   "You're a fine lot of scouts," said Nancy bitterly. "Letting us get caught like that. Why didn't you signal?"

   "We did," said Peggy.

   "Like windmills," said Roger, "for hours and hours, but it wasn't any good because you never looked at as us."  "

Plans For 2018

I decided to write down plans for this new year of 2018. So, here's a list:

Audition for more voice over opportunities

Blog/write more often

Finish writing my Minecraft novel

Get more jobs for podcast editing

Ski for the first time

Rollerblade a lot

Ice skate a lot

Save enough money to go on a trip (probably to france in 2019!)

Well, that's what I have so far, but I'll come up with more ideas.


I Got The Part!

I got the part for Jason in the minecraft casting call! A few days ago, I auditioned for for a minecraft animation, a Halloween special, and I got the part! The link above will send you to my blog post with all the information. 

I got a message from BlueDragon (that's the person who started the whole thing) that they're gonna change the story line, and that my scripts will be ready soon. So, I thought it be fun if I wrote my own Halloween special (with all the characters) just for fun, since I like writing short stories.

I think this will be great practice for other times in the future!

Audition For Minecraft Animation

A few days ago I auditioned for a Minecraft Halloween special animation (here is the link to the website) on a website called Casting Call Club (or CCC for short) where you can audition for animating, directing, voice acting, etc. 

Most of the stuff you'd be auditioning for is video games and animations. Here's my audition (you can also see it in the first link above. Just look under the character 'Jason' and click 'Auditions'. Then you can see all the auditions):

I think my lines/script was too short, but then again all the lines for characters on that website are short (well maybe not all of them). That was also when I finally got my mic (the Blue Yeti) working. So it was perfect.

also as I said this is a Halloween thing, but it is not some sort of cheesy-gory thing. It's a funny animation prank. The whole story (or should I say description of what the screen sees) is on the website, but to keep you from doing more hard work by clicking your mouse, here's the story (this is word by word because I'm just copy and pasting it. Also, BlueDragon is the creator):

"  Run through of the video:

BlueDragon goes trick or treating with her 2 friends Zoey and Jason. BlueDragon isn't dressed up, Zoey is dressed as a cat and Jason isn't dressed up. Jason and BlueDragon say they are too old for this but they still want the candy so they go anyways. They walk from house to house and eventually they have been to all the houses in the town so they go to Zoey's house. They look at all there candy and they find one item in Jason's candy bag that was kind of off. (IMAGE SHOWS UP ONE SCREEN~Small candy with a little skull on it) they all talk about how it could be poisoned, they put the candy aside and once BlueDragon and Zoey go through there candy they find the same skull candy that Jason had. They all stare at the candy and Jason talks about how it could just be a special Halloween candy or something. They eventually all try the candy at the same time. They all look at each other expecting something to happen or for them to be poisoned then Zoey's little sister runs in the room "HA you got trolled!" she yells "what!?" says Zoey,BlueDragon and Jason. Zoey's little sister Alice explains that she put the candy in all there bags (Black and white video of her putting the candy in there bags is shown as she explains) "So this was all some stupid joke?" says Jason "it wasn't stupid it was amazing!" says Alice "I'm GONNA KILL YOU, YOU GAVE ME A HEART ATTACK" yells Zoey as she chases Alice around the house. "well that was interesting" says BlueDragon video ends will Alice and Zoey running around.

Somethings in the video might be changed.  "

Well, that's everything. Bye!
