    Hi Heather,

    This sounds like fun!

    I think I recognized a few voices from custom levels I've played (and built)

    Hurray for good quality modern mics, huh? haha

    By the way, if you'd like share details on how to audition, it'll be better to just post it here

    It really sounds awesome. I soooooooooo wish there were TR audio books, this is such a great example of what could be done! I'll try to audition for the next one, although I'm really not sure that I can work on the accent isssue... but maybe

    (On a side-note, and that's just my opinion, but there's a volume balance issue between the music - which is way too loud - and the lines)
    Adventure found me...

    Thanks for pointing that out - I'll have it sorted for episode 2. Speaking of episode 2...

    Listen to Episode 1 of Tombcast

    Audition for

    Episode 2!


    Do you like writing, voice acting, or mixing and creating music? We'd love to have you audition for episode 2 of Tombcast, a fan made podcast inspired by all things Tomb Raider! We plan to release Episode 2 on Nov. 21st. Tombcast features TR fan fiction and short segments written, narrated, and musically scored by talented TR fans.

    Rules and Deadlines:
    • Submit all auditions by PM to Quasimodo
    • If you are submitting an audio audition, convert the file to .WAV
    • The deadline to PM auditions to Quasimodo is Monday, October 31st.
    • If you are accepted as a voice actor or narrator, you must PM your final recordings to Quasimodo no later than Monday, Nov. 14th.
    • Taking part in the podcast is a time commitment, so consider carefully before auditioning, especially if you'd like to do voice acting or narration.


    Writers:
    We're looking for
    • Halloween and horror-themed Tomb Raider fan fiction (no more than 10-15minutes long when read aloud)
    • Fun new segment ideas about 2-5minutes long, either Tomb Raider, adventure, or survival themed. For example, a segment from our upcoming episode 1 is A Famous Explorer Once Said, where one of Lara's real life counterparts is featured.


    Voice Actors and Narrators:
    We're looking for
    • Actors and narrators of any gender, age, and origin. This time we are mainly looking for people to narrate short stories and segments. Your final recording will be edited to fill a 2-15minute slot, but you will be sending me more than one take so I can choose the best one.
    • For your audition piece, PM me an audio recording of you reading a 1-2 minute monologue or short story.


    Music Mixers and Creators:
    We're looking for
    • Original music or remixes with a TR feel. Your music would be used for transitions between segments or as background music.
