Please visit the new forums for further instructions after signing up.

As permission has been granted to me by the previous owner of the radio show, Teh Brawler. I present to you the all new HP! Radio Show.

Please read the entirety of this post before deciding to contribute. This rule is in place to prevent un-needed posts and replies with questions which have already been answered. Thank you.

If you are new to the whole concept of refashioning comic strips into audible voice renditions, please feel free to ask questions that are not already answered in the FAQ section near the bottom of the post.

    Beginning
    Welcome to the HP! Radio Show, our main purpose in this project is to recreate most of the Housepets! comic strips into arc-long audio renditions. In short, we're trying to create a spoken version of the comic for people to listen to.

  • You can always contribute- Okay, so maybe you didn't get the spot you wanted. But don't feel bad! There are many other ways for you to contribute to the project. Getting the word about it to your friends, making banners, or even applying for another role. So get back up and help out!
  • There is no timeline- There will never be a strict time in which we will produce a given arc. When we finish one, we finish one, and if were running behind, instead of complaining about how slow we might get, why don't you help out?
  • The way we produce is Arc-to-arc format- Each and every show will be a specific arc written by one of our script writers, and will end when an arc ends. If an arc is shown to be too long for one episode, it may, or may not be split into 2 parts to keep production going.
  • Any audition you post here, and not send a link or form to me via private message will be ignored.- No exceptions.
  • Life gets in the way- If you are certain that you will be away from the forums and unable to contribute for a set period of time, inform me via pm so that we can accommodate your spots until you get back.

    Auditions
    As said before, an audition not sent to me is an audition not submitted.

  • Auditions must follow the guide- Shown at the bottom of the page. They say your audition is a window into the way you handle things. It doesnt matter if you have the most breathtaking vocal talent in the world, if i cant find it in the heaping wall of text you post, it will not even be considered. Be organized.
  • Auditions are never closed- although a spot may be filled up, if you believe that you could do a better job, or simply think you and the one already in the spot should work together, feel free to send in auditions or reference forms for me to review.
  • Extremely minor roles will be filled when the time comes- Characters which only show up once or twice will be filled when we need it. No sense trying to organize it when you don't need it.

    How the assembly line roles
    The whole process may not involve you until later, just chill.

  1. writing the script- First things first, before we start voice acting we need something to say, and in order to do this we need capable people willing to write out the arc in an understandable text format, for this to work we need sound effects queued exactly at the right time, what kind of emotion to show, any special music, or rewriting jokes so they make sense with no visual. If more than one writer is available, then the writers are expected to work together to create the main storyboard.
  2. Voice acting- Now that we have what to say, we cast the characters. We then send their character's specific parts directly to each user for them to record and send back. For diversity, we require 2 separate recordings of the same line, so that if you mess up, or it sounds better moreso on one than the other, we can simply switch the audio out when needed to create a better audition.
  3. Musical background- Some strips may require music specific to that strip, and thats the job of the musicians, who's job is not only to create music for the show, but also at times find the right track which fits perfectly into the situation.
  4. Sound effects- These people are mostly responsible for creating/ finding sound effects to be used at certain intervals during the show, though this position is mostly covered, we can always use a second hand.
  5. Editors- Their main job is to piece it all together. Once all voice recordings, sound effects and music is all ready, it is then sent to the editor to shape into a suitable sounding show. However, they are also expected to reduce or remove any background noise from poorer microphone setups, which is bound to occur.
  6. Appraiser- Called this because i couldn't think of another name, their main job is that after the editors are done they will review the full track and write down any inconformities which he finds. It will then be sent back to the editor for editing.

FAQ
Quote:
Q: Why would you want to do this?
A: The main reason is to get the word out further, and have a little fun while were at it.

Q: What if i want to audition, but don't have a microphone?
A: You ca usually pick one up at your local supermarket for pretty cheap, but remember that the cheaper you get, the more background noise takes up your whole audition, meaning more work for the editors. The less background noise, the better.

Q: Okay, i recorded my audition, but the background noise is very distracting.
A: Most of the time, the Editors can drown out the noise. but if it is really that bad then i'd suggest getting a better mic or try turning off some of the devices which could be causing the problem. ( A/C, fan, closing windows)

Q: I want to submit, but someone already took the role i wanted.
A: Well, maybe you should cook more rolls. It's okay if someone already has it, if you think you can do better then submit away.

Q: Where is this going to be uploaded?
A: We're mostly focusing on the Housepets! Youtube page. And our own forums. Any suggestions of places more would be helpful.

Q: Can I post my audition on the forums anyway?
A: Of course you can! If you want feedback, here is the place to get it!

Q: What if i don't have that much voice acting skill?
A: It's okay, you have to start somewhere.

Q: Do i have to submit 2 separate recordings when auditioning?
A: Not unless you want to.

So, I guess we need to re-submit our auditions and start from scratch then, huh?

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Tue Jul 05, 2011 6:55 pm ]

yes, I'm pretty sure we do.

Post subject:  Re: The Official Housepets! Radio Show.

I'm gonna re-do my auditions then. I have a better microphone since last time...and I think my voice has improved a little. Can't be sure though.

I really, really hope this one works...it's been too long since I was last excited over this thing.

Well, I had Joey in the last one, so I guess I'll stick my neck out and record for him.

I'll audition after I get back from taekwondo/grocery shopping.

Also, I would like to be a script writer and (if needed) a french hornist. How do I go about that?

erm.. I don't know <_>

How about sending me a pm saying you want to be a script writer, along with your audition for grape.

Eh, i could give a few voices a whirl, if I find the time. Is there a specific strip we need to audition or is it just any strip at all with the character? Or do we just wing it?

Just read a few lines from any strip with that character, and no. There's no specific strip we need voiced, that's done later when we get all the roles from that arc sorted out.

Quick question: I auditioned with Brawler for Joey over Skype. Can I do that with you, Zander?

Ooh, good question! Not having to download another program would be wonderful!!

I guess I need to download something anyway, though, huh?

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:09 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The Official Housepets! Radio Show.

of course, a recorded audition is better if you're going to need more than one take to get into character.
for future reference, here is a free audio recording program.

Gawd, to many technology! Meh, I'll stick to the crappy Window's Sound Recorder, which is kinda annoying because you have to talk really loud.

I feel like auditioning for some parts, but I feel that my "Manglish" dialect might sound weird to Americans and British people, so I'm not really sure whether to proceed...

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:59 pm ]

go ahead and try. the worst that can happen is he says no.

Yeah...don't worry about the accent. Just go with the flow and act the part out as you think it should sound...besides I have what you would call a "country-bumpkin" accent...that hasn't stopped me from auditioning haha.

Post subject:  Re: The Official Housepets! Radio Show.

It would, but it would be added if someone auditioned for that part.

Edit: We need a Grape, really badly. That's all we need to start the first arc. Don't worry about your voice not being that tomboy-y, that's the editors job.

I'll get my lines recorded tomorrow at the earliest, sometime next week at the latest. I need the house empty.

I'm glad this is finally happening.

also, is upurload good for delivering our recorded lines for editing, or do we need to use something else?
