Voice Auditions ND#28

Today we held voice auditions for a few characters that need to be cast for ND#28. And of course, after snooping around to learn about when this was going to happen, I had to sign up. Although I'm no real actor, I really wanted to try again.


Instead of having the visitors come up to the office, we directed them to a conference room downstairs, can you tell we like giving directions? XD

When it was my time to go in, I followed the paper trail to the room where our writer was and signed myself in. After asking him a gazillion questions (sorry, can't let out too much info!), we starting recording as I read off my lines. Check out the Script or "Sides" as they are called:

It was so much fun to read for these characters, I had to pretend to be someone else, think about how they would talk, and sound and what emotion and emphasis they put on their words. It was great!

Then I was asked to do another character. "Wait...another character? One that was not mentioned on the Sides?" I thought. Yep! Our writer told me just a little about this third character, and he would ask me questions.

I had to improvise my entire lines in response. o.O (Meaning I had to come up with this character in my head and answer questions for real!) Actually, I think this was even more fun than reading. I got to make up a character in my mind and bring her to life! It was soooo much fun!

I think that no matter who the final voices are in the next game, it will get a chance at being on my top five favorites list. Why? Because from what I've learned, (and it may be too early to say), it's amazing!

I suggest pre-ordering The Deadly Device...because remember: at the end of the game, you get to watch the preview trailer to ND#28. (Regular copies will also get to see it, so no worries!)

Do you mean Nancy Drew 28, LJ?

Great post! Sounds like it was a lot of fun! Wish I could audition as well! When you talk about pre ordering The Deadly Device and seeing the preview for the next Nancy Drew game is #29, did you mean to say that or #28 since The Deadly Device is #27? Just wondering! Thanks for such awesome posts and information! :))

Whatever happened to ND #28? You're going right to ND #29. Isn't #28 supposed to be next?

Little Jackalope said...

Ahh! Second Chance me! I totally got my numbers mixed up. >.< You are all right, it should have said #28. (Not #29).

@Anonymous -- If you watch the Interview with Nik that Phoenix did on YouTube, he will explain how the auditioning process works. ;)
