About Scriptwax Table Reads

Scriptwax Needs You!


Hey there! Do you want to practice your craft, work with other actors in real time, and help screenwriters hone their skills and polish their scripts? Do you want to be a part of the creative process that gets movies made? Do you want to be paid for doing all of that? Then you want to join the Scriptwax team!


We’re looking for talented voice actors interested in a part-time gig performing online table reads for amateur screenplays. Screenwriters looking to hear their short film, TV pilot, and feature film scripts read out loud hire Scriptwax, and Scriptwax hires voice actors — that’s you! — to read them.


What to Expect


We need voices of all kinds and ranges — roles are assigned on a per-script basis, and you’ll probably be playing several main and/or minor roles in a single script (each of which will have a brief description for you to work from). You’ll be paid an average of $40 USD per table read (and up to $80 for narrating). This comes directly from the fee screenwriters pay to have their script read. We're testing the waters right now, but ideally we will be able to increase the price in the future, and pay our actors at a commensurate rate.


Because every script we receive has its own cast and tone that we need to match in order to provide the best read possible, your involvement may be irregular. We provide a niche service, and the size of our audience is as-of-yet undetermined. While we can’t guarantee we’ll get off the ground, we can tell you that we will be open and honest about our expectations and notify you of changes when they arise.


Of course, you can also use the audio from the finished table reads to build your portfolio or demo reel, unless the writer requests it not be shared online.


Requirements


Our table reads are performed and recorded over Discord. You’ll need an account and to be familiar with how to use the client (including using push-to-talk and turning audible notifications off).


You’ll need a decent microphone and recording environment. Clear, high-quality audio is a must for our reads. Barking dogs, street sounds, people talking in the room, and other background noise is simply unacceptable. Table reads take an average of 1-3 hours per script, so you’ll also need to be able to maintain your recording environment for that length of time.


Punctuality and availability are also key. Our cast members will need to be able to effectively communicate their schedules and plan blocks of time for recording a read. This is another reason why we need a large bank of actors to call on; sometimes, you just can’t make it, and as long as you let us know ahead of time, that’s fine.

Wrapping Up


We’re putting the deadline for this audition at September 4 in order to best prepare for Scriptwax’s launch in September. Feel free to post your demo reel as an audition below, or any piece that shows your range, ability, and audio quality.


If you have any questions, or if you’d prefer to send us your demo reel directly, please fill out the application form on our website. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
