About Marutech University

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO AUDITIONED! WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF REVIEWING AUDITIONS. WE'LL RESPOND WITH FEEDBACK TO ALL VOICE ACTORS AND CAST THE ROLE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.



INTRODUCTION

Hello, everyone! From the same folks that brought you Dead Earth, Ugly Blue Hat Productions is back with an epic tale of horror, mystery, and suspense.  This casting call is for Season 1 of MARUTECH UNIVERSITY. We're casting to replace one voice:

1) Narrator: Lead/Male/Young Adult to Late-Middle-Aged. North American/American, perhaps with a slight New England accent (open to hearing auditions with slight English accents as well). This "character" is a little dark and foreboding, but with a touch of whimsy (or in other words, a confident but somewhat creepy character that finds scary things highly amusing). This "character" is the voice of God, so to speak, the person that interjects in at the beginning and end of an episode to explain and offer insight into the time, place and other characters. 

Though we envisioned a male voice for this role, we're open to a female voice and will accept female auditions. And while we will likely stick close to a traditional narration style, we're open to your interpretations of this role based on your initial reaction to the series synopsis and the lines, so feel free to have fun with the audition.  

All roles are in the English language. If you haven't read H.P. Lovecraft, we highly suggest it as a primer to the style/tone of the series. 

PLEASE NOTE: The show is currently in production. We had a wonderful, fantastic, awesome narrator whom we lost due to time constraints. As such, all of our scripts are ready for your hands; lines need to be recorded ASAP, and returned by mid-February. This is a fairly big time commitment, especially for an unpaid project. Please only audition if you can handle the workload. 


STORY OVERVIEW

Aaron Armstead is a professional student that has been studying at Marutech University for more than a decade. Although he has historically refused to take a teaching job at the University, Aaron has found steady employment with his long-time mentor, Professor Magnus Croworth. However, the old Professor has detected the beginning of a dark awakening, for which he wants more data to use in his research. As a result, Aaron is sent to investigate bizarre incidents all over the world, during which he uncovers an impossible conspiracy.

As if it were not enough to worry about forgotten gods, dark rituals, and terrifying monsters, Aaron also has to contend with modern issues. He'll have to navigate an environment where scientists create new technologies they can't control, learn to deal with a sentient AI that lives in his phone, and work alongside his ex-girlfriends. As Aaron struggles to hold on to his sanity, he'll need your help to find the truth.


DEADLINES AND AUDITIONS

The deadline for auditions is January 14th, 2019. There are currently no plans to extend this deadline, as the show is already in production, all the other lines are finished, and the production team is eager to get working again! 


WHAT TO EXPECT

Expect to be warmly greeted by Jules and Blake, the folks that put together Ugly Blue Hat, and Kevin, the writer for Marutech University. At this point, you'll be part of our UBH family, where you'll get to interact with other voices actors from around the globe, all of whom offer a wealth of experience and knowledge. UBH will showcase all series contributors in the credits sections of our series page (see UGLY BLUE HAT PRODUCTIONS for example).  Here we'll also showcase your demo reels and additional work. Once we get the lines back, we'll release the production schedule for the upcoming episodes.  We also do "featured" articles on our writers, voice actors, and sound designers. 

Though it is not necessary to be part of the team, we highly recommend you have or create a Discord account to keep current with UBH news and updates. 


WHAT WE ASK OF YOU

First and foremost, have fun -- we take pride in bringing together talents in different mediums to create something truly phenomenal, but none of it means anything if the people involved aren't passionate about their craft. 

That being said, please submit clean recordings on prosumer mics (no air conditioners in the background, no fans -- we'll run noise reduction on your files, however too much clean-up reduces the quality of your voice). Also please don't add effects to your lines -- leave that to our audio geniuses :) 

We do occasionally ask for line re-dos, but we do this sparingly and only after great consideration - we realize your time is valuable, and we won't ask for anything we can't work around in post. 

Lastly, since we're planning on multiple seasons, we 'd like to cast people who will be able to stick with us for awhile. Of course, life happens, but if you're just trying voice acting on for size, let us know, and we'll find a non-recurring role that is appropriate for you. 


WHO ARE WE?

Ugly Blue Hat is a for-fun, non-profit organization/experiment that strives to bring together artists from different mediums to create new and unique stories.
