About Nightshade: A Skyrim Machinima

The Elder Scrolls series creates expansive, immersive worlds like no other, and I thought Skyrim would be the perfect backdrop for my first big machinima project. The story follows a member of Skyrim's Dark Brotherhood, a mysterious band of assassins-for-hire, and will be published as a series of approximately 10-15 minute videos on YouTube. I don't have an official episode count (and I won't until I have finished all the storyboards for the project) but it is looking like it will be at least 20 episodes, and quite possibly longer. There is definite potential for a longer-running series. I have completed storyboards for the first two episodes and my plan is to have five or more storyboards done before the deadline of this audition page. I will be recording much of the video while this casting call is open, and have already gotten a head start. I am hoping to get the first couple of videos done before I start publishing them, so my goal is to have the first one up by the beginning of October.
I will update and add more roles in the near future.

What You Can Expect From Me:
  • *I make professionalism and flexibility a priority. Since this is an unpaid project, I know it will be slower going, and that's totally fine. If you are cast, I'll do my best to communicate and work with you to get things done.
  • *I will listen to every audition that is submitted, and I don't care about upvotes. It doesn't matter if someone else's audition got 200 upvotes and yours gets none. I'm not interested in who is the most popular, so please do audition! I am also not incredibly concerned about actors sounding exactly like the original characters. The gameplay I capture is heavily modded, and some of the characters look completely different anyhow. I'm looking for people who can capture the feel of the character, not do an impersonation.
What I Expect From You:
  • *Clear audio is an absolute must. You can be perfect for the role and do a great audition, but if your audio quality isn't good then unfortunately I can't use you. I expect VAs to edit the white noise out of their own audio; if they don't, that's a whole lot of extra work for me. There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to do this in Audacity, which is free software. If there is background noise in your audition, you will not be considered. Please be mindful of your mic sensitivity; if your gain is all the way up and distorts the audio, I can't use it.
  • *If you agree to a deadline, I expect you to keep it. Of course life happens and I understand that. Let me know and we can try to work around it, but you have to let me know. I do not communicate with VAs on any media except CCC (no Skype, Discord, Twitter, email, etc) so you must be willing to check this site frequently. If I don't hear back from you within a week, your role will be opened back up. You will be given plenty of time to record your lines, and if you need more, that's okay! But communication is key.
  • *If you've never played this game, I highly recommend it. Not that I won't cast someone who hasn't, but it's just a really fun game.
