About Bashful Series [18+]

PLEASE DON'T ALTER THE LINES IN YOUR AUDITION. THIS IS AN AUDIOBOOK -- YOU WILL NEED TO READ THE LINES AS THEY ARE WRITTEN. IF YOU ALTER THE LINES IN ANY WAY WITHOUT AT LEAST FIRST INCLUDING A TAKE WITH THE LINE AS IT IS WRITTEN, I WILL LIKELY NOT LISTEN TO YOUR AUDITION! I'M NOT USUALLY VERY STRICT OR PICKY, BUT THIS IS A POINT THAT I AM BOTH ON.

Note that audition lines/deadline and character descriptions may be subject to abrupt changes.
This call has been merged with the 2nd call in an attempt to maximize audition returns.

Explainer video links to the original version of Knock, which is going to be redone. Just as an example.

I wrote three stories a few months back, starting with a short story, and ending in two ten-chapter novellas. They wound up being pretty popular -- the two novellas are my most popular works to date. I found this funny, because I thought the first novella was boring to write. But, I digress.
I plan to continue the series with a few more short stories and novellas, and thought it would be a fun time-passer to turn them into dramatized audiobooks.

This project will be kind of slow-going, but I do hope to complete every story in the series. If I change my mind, I will of course post an update and/or change the title to make everyone aware of it. But, for the meantime, here's a casting call to see who's interested in helping me bring these suspense stories to life. ;)

Best start with the current story descriptions and any remarkable details:

Knock (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10570485)
Stacey is 20 years old and lives by herself. Yet, she can't help but feel like the bumps she hears in the night aren't figments of her imagination . . .
Words: 1454 (1 chapter)
Rating: Teen

Polarity (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10691658)

Australian artist Max Aleshire doesn't belong in Boston. The weather's too cold for him, as are the people. With only one friend, ex-girlfriend Stacey, he's become an introverted, socially paranoid recluse. He's convinced the loneliness and mundane routine are there to stay until Stacey dares him to make a friend online. By chance, he meets a handsome stranger: a writer named Cameron, with whom he has a lot in common. Inspired by this former introvert, Max attempts to open up and improve his life. First off, he lets Cameron in, certain that he's a good guy. After only a few days, he's surprised to discover that he might be developing feelings for this stranger—for another man!

Little does Max realize, though, that there's a much darker side to Cameron. If love is blind, then Max might not see the danger he's in until it's too late. If he does, will he care?

A fictional suspense novella by Noëlle McHenry about a lonely young man who finds himself trapped in a dangerous love game.

Ignore the Camera (http://archiveofourown.org/works/9520076)
Val Kozel wants to people to know him. That's why he started a vlog, and soon began streaming. Through this, he met his best friend, August Lund. Together, they work to reach internet fame as a gaming duo. In early October of 2018, they take a request to play a supposedly-cursed indie game so they can debunk it. What they don't realize is that disproving the game's curse might not be so simple. Soon enough, Val regrets having even downloaded the game at all. Unfortunately, his fans are oblivious to his terror. It's so close to Halloween, that they think it's nothing more than an elaborate, dramatized event...

No Worries (https://archiveofourown.org/works/13259775)
Max prepares himself to express his love for Stacey, his girlfriend of three years, at a New Year's party. Love is difficult for him as an introvert, but he's finally ready to give her the love she deserves. Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned.

There are a few more stories to be added, so this call will be added onto occasionally with new roles.

Each audiobook is intended to have full narration, character voices, and (possibly) sound effects when applicable. I'm treating this more as an audio drama sort of deal, I suppose. Each chapter will be posted separately to YouTube and Soundcloud, but in one huge playlist. Actors (and narrator) will be credited in the descriptions. I can plug websites and/or social media links next to names if requested. Either when you first e-mail me or when I request it, please tell me the name you'd like to be credited by, and any links you want included with your credit.

Lastly, I'm not making any profit off of these audiobooks, since I intend for them to be free. I'm not a YouTube partner, either. Not that YouTube would probably even allow me to monetize these anyway, considering their policies on de-monetization based on content and whatnot. Ha ha.
So, unfortunately, no payment here. Actors and narrators get nothing more than experience and possibly recognition if these somehow get big. Hopefully you find it interesting!

Also, if you have any talents (like composing or audio editing), and you're interested in volunteering to help me out somehow, feel free to message and/or e-mail me and we can discuss!

Requirements:
- Good quality audio is preferred for actors. You aren't likely to be cast if your audio is: too quiet, too loud (peaking), noisy/unclear (lots of background noise).
- Dedication. I would prefer for actors not to drop out of the project after I cast them. Do not audition if you are unsure about whether you can stick with it for the long haul.
- Emotion. The characters aren't robots -- be lively and express some feeling!
- This project requires a little bit of crying and screaming.
- This project contains swearing, violence, gore, (homo)sexual content (some characters may need to make some "18+" noises), and rather dark subject matter including stalking, murder, attempted rape, and kidnapping. See the story links above for list of tags. You shouldn't audition if you aren't comfortable with scenes regarding these subjects.
- I send scripts through e-mail. I don't care if you have a Skype or a Discord -- I will only contact you through e-mail. When cast, please e-mail me ASAP so we can get the ball rolling! (E-mail: sticklover4 [at] gmail [dot] com)
