Or at least a place that was like a decoy or something to it cuz i was called to do auddies for some kid in FMA, i think the name was Wrath..(he's cute) But anyways, i met Chris Subatt and Wendy Powell (i think thats her name) It was awesome! We sat and drank for a few minutes, and they asked me about my life and if i had VA expirence and i said "No, but i am trying to gain some at this site called Voice Acting Alliance.(they thought it was funny wen i had trouble saying the word "Alliance")

Yeah, but the sad part was i didn't get to go to the VA room, i only got to see the room where they get everything ready to go...
I was so freakin nervous that they wouldn't like my Wrath auddition >.< and i did the best kid voice i could do, they said they would e-mail my mom (just cuz i'm young >_>) to see if i can come back again. But the problem is that we shouldn't have used my mom's e-mail because she never CHECKS IT!! So i'm waiting...and waiting... :(

Hasnt FullMetal Alchemist been dubbed already, or am I missing something?

Anyways, thats really cool, I hope you get the part and good luck. Must be hard waiting to see what will happen.

And on a side note, how did you get called for that audition. Anything specific you didi? (I jump at the chance to ask people this whenever I can.)

Zangya

So you went to funimation...but you auditioned online...
and if you didnt go to a recording studio HOW did they record your voice?

sorry for the bizarre questions, im curious to how auditions go >.>

Im really confused and how old are you?

I think he sent in a audition slip or entry of some sort, through online I'm guessing. Such as sending in a voice clip with the entry, Then they probably called him/emailed him to come in for a voice/sound reading. To see how he faired in that dept. Now he is waiting for a call-back.

If you got an audition, I was wondering about one of the requirements:

"...Possess significant professional experience in live acting or voice acting..."

They were willing to give an average kid an audition? @~@ Or do you actually have any experience? I wonder how lenient they are on that one...

Wish I lived close to the studio... sigh. e_e;

Perhaps FUNi wanted to try using genuinly younger people or were simply impressed with FMA's voice. I wish you lots of luck! Perhaps you could have a word with your Mum to make sure she checks her email a bit more often? I'm sure she'll understand.
Again good luck, lets get another VAA-er going pro!

Well Al is played by a genuine kid so it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility.

Yes, you can get that from the main site.. which I've linked to in one of your posts from the other day, asking for how to go pro. In fact, that's word for word copied from this page here: http://www1.funimation.com/f_index.cfm?page=audition

;P

Anyway.. It would have been amusing to see the giggles as you had troubles pronouncing "alliance." That's awfully cute. >D;;;;;

Good luck.. with your audition or whatever. :D

You talked to those people?? Wendy Powell? You live in FortWorth?? X_X Oh my... How did you send auddies online? I thought I'd already perused their website to death. That's incredible they actually sent for you!!

I've called the headquarters several times to try and see if I could go and see the studios, since it's in my area. No one has ever picked up or called back or anything.

We moved ther a month ago >.< its so beutiful here ^^!! (but the only reason we moved was because if the hurricane or someting...i dont know)

Um, i believe your supposed to mail it ^^; llike my mom corrected me on (hopefully my dad doesn't find out) To the adress, but if you called them like u say, then maybe i'll put in something for you (wen i actually go back) Like, just PM me ur reall name or something, and if you have a resume, gimmie ur site :!:

PHONE #!! ^-^ Could I just go ahead and send you it over something?

Yeah, that confused me, I was sure that they want you to mail it to their address. But you just emailed a demo reel?

Where in FortWorth do you live?? I live out in Keller w/ all the cows!! :luv

Zangya
07-11-2005, 08:57 PM
I dunno, but i'll guess and say some place called Richardson Hills since thats what meh dads always talking about on the phone <_<

Well, they just want a sample of ur voice... wich was kjind of hard for me because i dont know what my real voice is *shiftyeyes*

Maybe i'll come visit u or something wen i find the name of where i'm living ^^

Neriah
07-11-2005, 10:24 PM
North Richland hills you mean? o_o I've never heard of Richardson Hills.

Have you already gone back to Funimation Studios? ...Nyeh, is that what they told you?

Maybe it'd be easier if we met somewhere! Or maybe if I came to you since I've had my driver's licence for a little bit.
X_X I don't really have my resume up and running yet.
I've come to find that you have to be kind of direct in order to get attention from facilities... At least from looking around for jobs.

Zangya
07-11-2005, 11:46 PM
Yeah, but i dout my dad would let me <_<

But anyway, i'll put in a good name for u ^^ Oh, and im supposed to go there sometime next week, so i can see how things work with a whole lot of other FMA VA's *___= cool

Hey chiklet. ^-^ Are you sure it's FUNimation studios? When did you have auditions?
I spoke to a guy named Scott Garner who oversees the auditioning and he told me that they only hold auditions twice a year. (Finally got through over phone!!) I think this year it was February they last held them from what he told me.

They don't start getting new projects in until the fall now.

Zangya
07-14-2005, 01:39 AM
I'm pretty sure it was, im not the only one there ya know, me and this girl whose name in Eclair' on other forums are there too Y_Y<--yay! Anyways, yeah youd know i am lying if i talk about something else :?

Auditions as far as I know weren't in Febuary (I have been on the auddie list since last November, so I would have been called) From what I have been told, they are either supposed to be this month or next month....open call auditons anyway....

Maybe I wouldn't know. I was just going by what I was told! *headaching from confusion* I guess you live close by too, huh.
What are 'open call auditions'?

You weren't called back, but you would've in February if that were the case because they're open call auditions?

I'm really confused... He told me that they'd have new projects for people to start auditioning for in some eventuality inbetween september and november. Not July, I don't think.

I wouldn't doubt it. After all, Alphonse was voiced by Aaron Dismuke, and he's only 12.

Zangya
07-15-2005, 04:39 PM
Actually, about Aaron, me and him are pretty good friends now...i guess(i dont count him as a friends, he makes me jealous) But theres going to be a convention soon in Dallas and we all get to go and stuff, so my sister can go for free. But they havent told me anything about VAing yet *shiftyeyes* I'm gonna have to find out next week :twisted:

No, but I'm hoping it will be either for Trinity Blood, Kodocha, Galaxy Railways, or maybe any newly liscences items that they may have aquired but haven't announced. (You know when they announce stuff that usually means that they've had it for a while but now they have a cast of some sorts.)
