IMPORTANT: THIS AUDITIONS POST IS CLOSED, THUS ALL FUTURE AUDITIONING EMAILS WILL BE IGNORED
Hello there, reader! You're currently reading the Project Information segment of Megathon's third season's official auditions post. What you are about to see here in this segment is a quick summary of what this series (Megathon) is all about, as well as a few directly embedded example episodes. So, if you already know what we're talking about here, you can just skip ahead if you want. Alright, now that we've got that out of the way, let's begin:
What's Megathon, you might ask? In all simplicity, Megathon is a Youtube video series that acts as a reimagining of the famous retro game series, Mega Man. This video series features remixed music, voiceactors, additional plot elements, cutscenes & dialogue, stylish gameplay and much more. So, in other words, it is a playthrough of the game with an annotation commentary, as well as lots of cool extra content! And yes, as you might have guessed, the third season takes on the task of adding all these neat things into Mega Man 3, which is believed by many to be the best game in the entire series.
For those who wish to see what I am talking about, here are two videos for you to watch:
Now that you have watched (or have not watched, depending on the length of your attention span) those two vids, you should have a somewhat good idea of what this series is all about.
But before we go any further, some of you might want to see the list people who have already committed themselves to this neat project.
Here's an abridged version of just that:
Needle Man-------------Roahm Mythril
Now then, now that you know what this series is, there's only one last question I need to ask you:
Are you game?
So, you have made the decision to move forward and perhaps even audition for us? Excellent. Let us first discuss some of the basic things about these auditions. As you might have already discerned, most of the roles have already been filled via scouting. We've only two more roles to fill, but one of those said roles is a very big one, so stay sharp. Next up are the two roles I am hoping to fill.
Mega Man, the main protagonist of the entire series, is the happy-go-lucky hero of this story, and the champion of all things innocent; humans and robots alike. He possesses a strong sense of justice and a pure will devoid of evil thoughts. While he was previously enjoying an era of well-earned peace, the recent events have forced him to take up arms once again. With his trademark Mega Buster in his possession and his canine companion Rush by his side, he is more than well equipped to handle virtually anything that comes his way. Mechanical maniacs and evil geniuses beware!
Mega Man has a happy-go-lucky, young teenager -type of voice.
1: "Hey, everyone, I'm home!"
2: "Alright, time see what those new robots are made of! Catch you later, professors!"
3: "Hm? A note from Dr. Light."
Top Man is a Robot Master created by Dr. Light and Dr. Wily to work on other planets in search for resources needed to build Gamma, the ultimate peacekeeping robot. However, a few months after he and the other Robot Masters were created, something went wrong: a mysterious red robot, Proto Man, hacked into their programming and managed to gain control. Now Top Man stands in Mega's way like the others, guarding one of the vital Energy Elements and destroying anything that comes near it. However, even in this berserk state, he is still an extremely happy individual who enjoys nothing more than spinning round round round... preferably while on a collision course with someone.
This guy should have a voice that bears striking resemblance to Meowth's voice in Pokemon's english dub. Energetic and slightly high-pitched.
1: "Hey, let's go for a spin!"
2: "I'm in tip-top shape now! Come and get some!"
3: "My head's.. spinning... ugh..."
