    Male Voice needed for speech - Click for more info!


    Hello community!

    I am currently making a Mount & Blade machinima, a movie taking place within the mount & blade game engine if you will.

    A small introduction I wrote for the beginning of the video - it might give you an idea of the story, setting and environment!

    ”In the final days of the Divine Era, the Swadian Kingdom struggled to maintain their grip on the Nord clans. After almost one hundred years of dominance, the Nord chieftains slowly united their clans and forgot about their past disputes. The Swadians, who waged war on two fronts, were not strong enough to preserve their supremacy in the northern lands of Calradia.

    Baron Edward and Count Meltor are meeting an anonymous snitch of the Nords who would leak their strategic plans and positions in exchange for gold. This information could turn the tide of the war and could be used to divide the Nord Chieftains forces and annihilate them separately.
    Having no other option, Baron Edward and Count Meltor gathered the few forces they had left and sought out to meet this dangerous ally in darkening times.”

    So basicly what I need is the following

    - Male voice
    - Preferably deep but not necessarily
    - Imagine you're a baron or a count of a smaller force; your voice should be commanding, wise and badass. You only need a few sentences seeing as it won't be a long movie.
    - Be able to speak in sort-of-a knightish way, imagine that this is medieval times. Don't speak generic American.
    Accents could be standard british, foreign or american if you can make it sound badass. I think being british has a natural advantage here since it's easier to sound knightish, but you could easily pull it off otherwise!

    You will be featured in credits, and if you have some sort of webpage (youtube etc) I will recommend this page aswell. But do it for the fun of it! I promise that there will be taken a lot of work into this project smile
    I will write the lines you have to say if you're interested!

    Would love to submit something, but for some reason nothing I have done is ever getting moderated.

    Let's try out some test samples
    You're the king. You just got a message from a courier saying that you lost two of your generals in sudden ambush. This will be your response to him. You should sound wise, agressed and generally like a king. You may choose to sound pissed or not, but do not shout it.

    "Gather all the Legions. We're gonna end their pitiable rebellion."

    Hi Art0rDie smile

    Over the past few days we were inundated with hundreds of uploads in a short space of time.

    We have only just got on top of it. Thanks for your patience.

    When it is moderated, I took a quick stab at that line as a sample:

    http://www.freesound.org/people/ArtOrDie/sounds/170339/

    I also have a deeper version that sounds more "badass" but also less authentic (depending what you're going for) and another that sounds a touch British, but also a big snarky and condescending - probably not what you want unless this king is supposed to be disliked. Still I can provide the other versions I came up with on request.

    Yeah I think it was.

    Anyway, as i'm here, I might as well moderate this sound now. It is a sample request after all wink

    I'll upload the deeper version here as well, but so that you can get to it without too much delay, I have dropped all 3 versions on my site as well. (2 is the deeper version.)

    That was much better! You have a badass voice man!
    I'll be using this, and credit you (and link your website if you want me to)

    We're might make a sequel wherein the king would be featured a lot more - then we would need you again if you're up for it!

    I reckon you would do well as a VO artist for video games. Maybe that's an avenue for you to explore? wink

    Absolutely. I felt the deeper version sounded less like how an actual, real person would sound... But where it's a video game... smile

    Let me know when you'd like more. It's a very small amount of work for me and each project is a new VO notch on my acting resume.
