At the moment there are no open casting calls and there are no plans to add it.
When a client has shortlisted you for a project they either 1) reach out directly and ask if you’re interested in auditioning for the role, or 2) shortlist a maximum of five talents to read 2 – 4 lines of dialogue in character so that the client gets a feel for how they portray it and then reach out to the best fit.
When a game developer is using our platform looking for a voice talent, there will probably be as many approaches as there are users. However, here are some tips to maximize your discoverability:
- Make sure to add an appropriate amount of tone-tags to your demos! We recommend anything between five and seven.
- Got previous experience working as a voice actor in the gaming industry? Make sure to add it to your profile!
- Double-check to see if you've added your Time Zone: it might be a feature that was added after you completed your profile.
- If you've got the opportunity to, add more demos! While video game and video game-adjacent demos are optimal, things like a commercial read or something similar doesn't hurt!
