Hello everyone! In 2011, Solo Sound will be producing a short audio drama. It was be an adaption of the short story by John Jackson Miller, titled "Knight Errant: Influx", which was released on StarWars.com earlier this year. This short drama will be used as a practice run to see if we feel that we can pull of our own original, full length audio drama.

Right now, I have cast every part, except for Vannar Treece. Treece is Kerra Holt's master - you can read the story here: http://www.starwars.com/vault/books/knighterrant_influx/index.html to know what his lines are. Everything he says in that story, he'll say in the audio drama.

Now, I hadn't planned to open auditions to anyone outside of Solo Sound for this drama (though our big audio drama will be open to anyone and everyone), but so far I can not find someone to play Vannar Treece. So, to our male members - if you want to audition, please do. Just send me an email (staff@eucantina.net) with an attached mp3 or wav file of your recording. I would like for you to record these lines:


1. Laughing - "Without subterfuge, we wouldn't get very far. This isn't a place where you can be yourself. Not for very long, anyway!"

2. Stern, slightly angry- "These are not my Knights, Kerra. You know that. They're on loan, more or less. I owe it to Chancellor Genarra not to waste their lives on a ten-percent plan!"

3. Stern, Gentle - "Are you speaking for all of us, Kerra? Because it sounds to me like you're speaking for yourself. And I already know: just one Jedi isn't much good to anyone here in Sith space. You won't get noticed. You won't get anywhere."

My picture of Treece is a man in his 40-50s, with a very strong, heroic sounding voice, but also gentle and fatherly.

So please, every guy who is a member is welcome to audition, but I'd like to have your recording by the 3rd of January. If you have any questions, let me know!

(By the way - if you get the part of Treece, you'll be nominated for a "Best Actor" award in the Star Wars Fanworks Fan Audio awards next year.)

Okay, I've received an audition already that is perfect, so I'm going to have to close it. But we'll have open auditions for everyone next time!

Sweet hootenani, that was quick!
But, OMB, is the invitation to ask questions still open? I ask because I was wondering where to get or download some sort of voice recording tech? Or is there some already on normal computers?

I thought that was the dog? Or is the dog called Audacity?

And thanks, OMB!

Depends if you're a man. Laughing

But Audacity is very useful. I like it.
