    About Audio of the Arcane presents: Breanna's Haven (Episodes 1 and 2)

    INTRODUCTION

    Hello there!  This is a casting call for a brand new audio fiction podcast I've started writing called Audio of the Arcane.  This series will be an anthology series listening to the recordings of those who dare to explore the magical aspects that hide in real life.  This first season is titled "Breanna's Haven."  The plan is to have 38 main episodes (about 20-30 minutes each...hopefully) with the possibility of mini/bonus episodes, depending on how the podcast goes.

    I have the first two episodes in drafting stages, which is why I'll only be casting for the first two.  There will be many, many new characters coming later on, so be sure to check in and see.

    WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

    This first season follows Tamsin and Lena, two best friends (practically sisters) who are travelling to the aforementioned Breanna's Haven?  Why?  Well, Tamsin has received a postcard from Breanna's Haven that reads as follows:

    If you wish to know where you came from, arrive at Breanna’s Haven before August One

    Tamsin, having no idea as to who her parents are or what her parents are, has decided to take a risk and go to Breanna's Haven, hoping to get the answers she desperately wants.  With Lena tagging along, having her own questions, the two of them arrive at Breanna's Haven.  But what happens when they get there?  Guess you'll have to listen to find out!

    DEADLINES AND AUDITIONS

    The deadline is October 15th.  This may or may not be extended depending on how many applicants apply.  However, no one will be cast until the final deadline has been met.

    I'm looking for voice actors and an audio engineer/sound designer, as well as podcast cover art and possibly a short theme tune for the podcast.  I encourage anyone who is interested to apply, whether you have all the experience or are just beginning; this is my first dive into podcast writing, so I totally understand.

    This is a paid project.  That being said, as I am not making money on this at this point, my rates may seem quite low, and I apologize for that.  However, this being my personal project, I do want to be able to pay you those who are willing to work on it as much as I can muster.  For the voice actors, the rate is $0.50 per line of dialogue used in the podcast (the roles listed just have estimates per episode).  For the audio engineer/sound designer, the rate is up to $50 per episode (and I will do everything in my power to make it as easy for you as possible).  With regard to the podcast art and theme music, I'll be looking for quotes, so please include those in your audition.

    Once the first episode is live, I'll start a Patreon or something like that in hopes of getting money to pay you all the rates you deserve.

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    I will be creating a Discord server for this project at some point, so it is imperative to have a Discord.

    Additionally, this project will be paid, which will be done through PayPal.  However, if the majority of applicants have a different preference, I'll see what I can do.  PayPal is just the easiest for me, but I will bend if required.

    WHAT I'M ASKING OF YOU

    • The most important thing is to have fun with it!  In fact, I encourage ad-libbing and taking creative liberties where you think it might be fit.  At the end of the day, this will be a team effort, so why not bring your ideas to the table?
    • This isn't a NSFW podcast by any means, but please be at least 18 years of age or older if you apply.  The main cast starts at that age and with all the swearing, violence, adult themes, and possible spiciness that make take place, I'd prefer not to have younger applicants for this project.
    • This is a LGBTQIA+ friendly podcast; most of the characters are queer in one way or another.  If that's not your cup of tea, please don't audition.
    • I'm not asking for the recordings to be perfect, but minimal noise in the background is a must (no air conditioners, fans, etc.).
    • Audition for as many characters are you like.  I don't have specific voices in mind for these characters, which is where you come along.  You may not think it, but your voice may be the one for a certain character.  I won't know until I hear it!
    • Please have at least three takes of each line (AAABBBCCC) when you audio for a role.  This will give me a better grasp of your range and the different emotions you convey each line with.  Of course, you can have more than three takes if you life.
    • This will be a long-term project, so only audition if you are willing to stick around and see this through, especially when applying for a main character.
    • If you don't get a role, don't worry!  This is only casting for the first two episodes.  I promise, there are many more characters just waiting for voices, so don't get discouraged.

    I can't wait to work with all of you soon!  Breanna's Haven is more than happy to welcome you!

    About the Creator: ashleyvivianwrites

    Hello there!  My name is Ashley Vivian.  I'm an aspiring writer who have decided to take on the task of writing an audio fiction series called Audio of the Arcane.  It will be an anthology series listening to the recordings of those who dare to explore the magical aspects that hide in real life.  The first/main season is titled "Breanna's Haven," which focused on Tamsin and Lena, two best friends (practically sisters really) who travel to Breanna's Haven after Tamsin receives a postcard from the small midwestern town, claiming that she will learn her origins if she goes there.


    I look forward to working with people and learning about the ways of podcasting.  If you're interested in this project, I hope you apply!
