Think you got the chops to work it along side your favorite dub voice actors? Think you can do it better than all of them? Well now's your chance to put your money where your mouth is... or at least your voice. Hosted by Tom Wayland of TripWire Productions and Michael Sinterniklaas of NYAV Post, the winner will get a trip out to New York to fulfill their dreams recording a role in an upcoming anime release.
Contestants will be randomly selected to compete in the first of three rounds:
* In the first, everyone will read from a monologue (no longer than 1 minute in length) that they have selected themselves. The passage can be from any source (TV, film, play) but must be suitable for all ages at the show (PG-13).
* The second round is the "Versatility Round", in which contestants will be forced to read a passage in an unexpectedly bizarre (and hilarious) character voice or accent. There is no preparation for "angry drunk Scotsman!", "elderly nun with Tourette's!" or "Captain Kirk!"
* During the final round, the remaining contestants will perform dialogue for a short scene in an anime, complete with the video. Can you handle the lip-flap?
The ultimate winner who survives all of that will get a free trip out to the Big Apple to spend a day recording the dialogue for their own character in one of the new projects Tom & Mike are working on.
All contestants must fill out a registration form before the event and must be 18 years or older. Make sure to stop by the Info Desk for a registration form and more information.
