The possible condition of TMJ
I have lines to do for some projects I'm in and my desktop computer and microphone have been in another city for some weeks without me being able to take it home. On top of that, my father was supposed to take it with him, this weekend, but forgot it... Now I have to wait till Wednesday when I (hopefully) will get it back.
Awarding auditions by default. Even if the only auditioner has the right voice, only having one to choose from, especially for a major role, really puts you over the barrel if the VA awarded the role by default is dissatisfied with something. heh I really hope I don't find myself in that situation.
Arguing among judges.
The joys of good auditions. The joys of having many...good auditions. Totally a peeve, because that delays the results for the JRPG thread.
;P Funny that I'm gonna whine about whiny people here, but it does grind my gears whenever folks assume that bitching and moaning about their lack of success will do them any good.
As in, "I AUDITION ERRWHERE BUT DIDN'T GET ANY PARTS SO ERRWHERE IS DUUUUMMMBB!1!!"... There's a possibility that this fella could use some improving to compete against other talents. Knowing who you keep losing roles to is a good starting point in figuring out "why that person got cast over me", "what is that person doing right that I should learn", and "what should I do to keep up/close the gap", for starters.
"I'M IN A LOT OF PROJECTS AND NONE OF THE STUFF I'M IN EVER GET FINISHED SO EVERYTHING IS DUUUUUMMMBBB!!"... Then be more selective in what you're auditioning for. Just audition for folks with proven track records and whatnot.
The list of complaints go on.
Don't just work harder--Work smarter too, yo.
ONLY AUDITION FOR ME!
/I am so done
But please, when you audition, don't impulsively choose the popular anime with a producer bearing a laughable record or thread. It just might not get finished. ' -'
This kind of attitude is the bane of many first time producers. Others have pointed out warning signs of an over confident/naive/lazy producer which it would be much better to look for, rather than immediately dismissing producers who aren't known yet. We all have to start somewhere after all.
My pet peeve is that there are producers out there who make it possible for VA's to validate the "only work for someone with a proven track record" attitude.
My favorite folks to work with are those who are ambitious and show it, 'cause while everyone else was too afraid of their work never seeing the light of day, I'm making money with them as they keep improving from project to project; jumped into their talent pool while it's still small. And there're LOTS of ambitiously awesome folk. And for the folks who might've forgotten to show what they're capable of? I personally always make it a habit to ask for: WIP content, samples of their work, etc. If there's nothing and you're not up for the risk, maybe give a courtesy bump and they might remember you for being supportive at the next audition. I've gotten quite a few roles offered to me just for helping the underdogs.
Darn. Cold coming up and lots of deadlines to catch. Fun!
