CLOSE THIS THREAD NOW IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO MAKE A BIG COMMITMENT TO A FANDUB.
I am going to be taking the ever popular visual novel "Kanon" and turning it into 5 feature-length films
Each film will star one of the 5 main heroines (meaning each heroine gets one whole film!!)
Now this will be taking imagery from the visual novel so there will be no actual animation but there thousands of different images so it's close enoug
And it's awesome and unique and different
Some of the characters (most Yuuichi) do sometimes use vulgar language (but not often)
And there is one intimate scene (however it's just a dream Yuuichi is having and its not explicit)
Just thought I'd let yo know that before you audtioned
Right now there is no deadline
However, I take my auditions on a first-come basis
If I get an audition for a character and the audition is good they get the character on the spot
So if there's a character you really want then audition fast!
If I don't get many auditions though I'll throw up a deadline
Recording & Contacting
MP3 or WMA only. No other format will be selected.
I prefer you would label our auditions as "usename_charactername_line#" but nobody listens to that so whatever floats your baot
