Hello all, and Happy New Year. A lot of you have seen or are aware of the Audio production ‘From the Jaws of Defeat’ which me and some fellow wingnuts recently made. I’d now like to announce my next and considerably more ambitious project: Wing Commander: Defiant Few – An Episodic Audio Series, and say that I am now accepting auditions from anyone who’s interested in doing some voice acting. (It may well be the case that I’ll need to look beyond the CIC for some of these roles. If you know anyone who’s not on the forum who you think might be interested in auditioning, please pass this along) Premise: The series covers a devastating Nephilim attack on the Gemini Sector, and the attempts of Admiral Sandra Goodin and her piecemeal fleet to safeguard the civilian population and fight back against the ever growing Nephilim armada. There are five major roles and seven minor roles to audition for. I’m going to be casting new characters as needed with each new episode, just to keep people whose characters don’t appear in episode 4 for example from having to wait months for me to get to that point. Episode 1 Casting Call Major Roles Admiral Sandra Goodin: Commander of Perry Naval Station and Confederate Naval operations throughout Gemini Sector. She is a calm, confident professional but the on-going destruction brought to her sector takes its toll on her as the series progresses. Audition Lines: 1. Inform the Falchion, the Nyx and the Owain Glendower that they are now the Gallant's escorts. 2. Divert emergency power to the shields at the estimated points of impact. Captain David Wilkinson: Attaché to Admiral Goodin. Formerly a pilot until suffering a debilitating injury whilst ejecting during the Border World’s conflict. He is her right hand, voice of reason and confidant when required. Audition Lines: 1. The grass is always greener everywhere except where you happen to be standing. 2. Maybe they know something about this new Nephilim build-up that we don't. Colonel Patrick ‘Pharaoh’ Webber: The carrier TCS Charlemagne’s Wing Commander. Stern but likable, Pryce’s expectations of his/her pilots are always high. Audition Lines: 1. Yes, we know! They're going to try their luck anyway. There isn't time for interruptions people. 2. Sundew, Goblet, Block, Beasty, Leech, Wizard and Bard are Beta wing in the Excaliburs with me as wing-leader. Brian Ganesan: A young, retired privateer who had planned to settle down with his wife Amanda on New Detroit. Unfortunately for him, Confed’s emergency decree 394 compels him to leave in his fighter to help resist the Nephilim advance. Audition Lines: 1. You need to get out of the system, take the first transport you can find that’s heading for Earth and stay with your mother until Gemini's bug free. 2. I can't just leave you, not now. Amanda Ganesan: A militia pilot on maternity leave. She convinces Brian that he has to fight for the sake of their home and family. Audition Lines: 1. I'm a pilot too Brian, remember? I know what can happen out there. 2. We’re at war, nothing is right. Minor Roles (Can all be male or female) Bridge Officer 1: Radar operator on Perry Naval Base Audition Line: Admiral Goodin, I’m detecting a ship coming through the Tingerhoff jump point, a big one. Bridge Officer 2: Communications Officer on PNB Audition Line: Admiral, TCS Gallant reports that it has cleared the hanger. Bridge Officer 3: Weapons officer on PNB Audition Line: Shields are up and at full strength Admiral, all laser and tachyon turrets are online. Newscaster: A person who reports the news. Audition Line: As yet the number of Confederation warships in the system remains unchanged at three carriers plus fifteen escort vessels' giving Confed the numerical advantage for the moment. Bard: A pilot from the TCS Charlemagne. In this episode they have only one line. Audition Line: Colonel, we know the Nephilim can see through cloaking devices, (To avoid giving away spoilers, I’m going to have to be a little vague for these next two.) Commodore Pryce: Commander of another Confederation flagship. His/Her voice should sound slightly automatic or ‘off’. Audition Line: I am not at liberty to explain anything over the com, save of course that we are here to assist in the defence of this system. Com Officer: Pryce’s communications officer, Only one line. They should sound slightly automatic/off as well. Audition Line: we are preparing our fighters for a magnum launch and heading for a position between the base and the Ragnarok jump point.
