Final Fantasy VIII Fandub
Episode V - "A Meeting 18 Years Apart"
"Yes... The many faces you've shown me. Times when you were hurt, worried... Or felt pain deep inside you... Your smile, your face, your eyes... You've shown me something... I think I can come up with a song."
Final Fantasy VIII was released in 1999. With the recent Dissidia and Dissidia Duodecim, three characters have been given voices: Squall Leonhart, Ultimecia, and Laguna Loire. However, the others remain largely silent. I plan to dub the entire game, beginning to end. I know there are quite a few other dubs of this game out there, but I wish to try my hand at it.
All footage will be captured by me using FRAPS and the ePSXe emulator, with FMVs ripped from the discs using psxMC. Doing this yields the highest quality video possible with such an old game. However, footage is only half the battle with a fandub. I need voices, which is where you all come in. Characters in Episode I were scouted by me from people I've worked with on my friend Marie's FFIX fandub, or those she recommended, or ones I found myself. However, from this episode onwards, auditions will be taken from here, with only a few scouted for if I cannot find someone for the role on here (unlikely; I know how good people on here can be n.n).
Instructions and Rules
- Do not audition for a character you do not really want
- Realize that, if you audition for two mains, you MAY GET TWO MAINS. This is a lot of commitment, so make sure you can do that first.
- I will hold auditions for episodes as they come (For instance, I won't look for an Irvine until the episode BEFORE he's needed)
- Please send all lines as .mp3
- If there is no way you can submit an .mp3, then .wav is alright
- Please .zip all lines together in a file named something like "Username_FFVIII" (example: Scarlet_FFVIII)
- Keep multiple takes of one line in the same file
- Name every line "Username_Character_Line#" (example: Scarlet_Rinoa_01)
- Send auditions to email@example.com
- The deadline is July 17th
- I want to keep the cast small, so please audition for as many characters as possible. It's easier to work with and coordinate a smaller amount of people. This isn't to say that I'll sacrifice quality for a smaller cast; no way will I ever do that.
