EBC Weekly - Guest Auditions Closed and Bronycon Panel

Good morning, everypony! It’s been a while since we last did an update, but we’ve finally got all of the guest voice actors chosen. The team thanks everyone who submitted an audition. There was some good talent in the pool. Unfortunately, we could only pick a few of you. We will most likely do this again in following episodes. Some of you — who were not picked for a role this episode — may have gotten a critique. We hope you took it as constructive criticism and useful for your development as a voice actor. Please do not get discouraged. We thank you for the time and effort you put forth to make the radioplay even better. You are always welcome to send in auditions when we ask for them.

We would also like to note that we have closed the editing and script team tryouts as well.  We’ve received a few new additions that are hard at work generating scripts and training to edit episodes together.  We thank all who tried out as well.

In other news, EBC will be hosting a panel at Bronycon this year! Join us Friday August 1st @4:15PM in STAR room for “From Pen to Program: A Radioplay Adaptation”. Several of us, including the star of the show will be on the panel to talk about adapting a written story into a radioplay. It will highlight the techniques we use.

Finally, we want to publicly congratulate Rina-chan (Homage) on getting the role of Twilight Sparkle and Spike in the upcoming Power Ponies mobile game from Hasbro. We’re honored to have her and the rest of our talented VAs on the team.

Hopefully, we’ll see you at Bronycon. If not, join us for a recap of the panel post-con.

Open-Audition Note: Keep a copy of your files just in case

Just a reminder.  If you are interested in auditioning for any of the roles from the audition script (in the last EBC Weekly), be sure you keep a copy of the file locally.  Just in case something happens, we don’t want you losing your hard work :D.

Cheers,

EBC Weekly #9- Available One-time Minor VA Roles for Episode 3 

Hello all!

We hope you enjoyed listening to our second episode of the Fallout Equestria radioplay. We are hard at work making then next episode, but we need your help!

We are trying something new to us that I think many of our fans and hopeful VAs will enjoy. We are opening up a few minor one-time roles for the public to audition for. There are a few raider and captive parts available.

If you are interested, dust off the ol’ mic, pick a few (or all) lines in the casting script, and submit your audition to auditions@equestrianbroadcastingcompany.com. We would prefer a link to an unlisted Youtube video with your audition, but if you want to submit straight to email, that’s fine too.

Script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DlbbHlcLPLuwc6r0bwn2Bus1eSw4b69huLrWk0gYZWY/edit

Auditions, if picked, are the final lines used in the episode, so make them count! We also need you to make sure you limit the following common recording issues. There’s nothing sadder than a great voice actor with audio that is too noisy to be used. Please make sure you limit the following as best as possible:

- Mic noise (the buzzing sound)
- Echo from your voice bouncing off the walls
- Environment noise (computer fan, airplanes, other people talking, bumping things mid audition, etc)

You don’t have to have the fanciest mic either, but we usually encourage our internal VAs to use condenser mics. It helps capture more of the sublties of your voice, but even some gaming headsets have increased their mic quality to a point that is acceptable now. We aren’t going to make a fancy mic a requirement, so go ahead and send them in.

If selected, you will be credited in our episode. There’s also a chance for a more permanant spot, but that may come after a few one-time roles. Everyone who wishes to do minor roles (internal and external) has to audition for them, and there are no open named cast parts availiable right now.

Thanks!

Fallout: Equestria Radioplay Episode 2 “Into the Wastes”

Two hundred years after a bitter war that decimated the Equestrian landscape, one little pony trots forth into the wasteland in search of her friend. As she gets her first real taste of life in the Equestrian Wasteland, so too is she treated to the evils of a land that has forgotten the virtues of ponykind. Her journey towards rekindling the lights of friendship in a world gone dark continues in the second episode of the radio serial adaptation of KKat’s “Fallout: Equestria”, courtesy of the Equestrian Broadcasting Company.

Stay tuned and stay awesome, my friends!

After months of hard work, the Equestrian Broadcasting Company is proud to present the next chapter in the thrilling saga of the Fallout: Equestria Radio Play. In the last episode, we left our young heroine, Littlepip, as she was swept up in a series of events that would change her life forever.

Having left the comforts of her stable, Littlepip is subjected to the vast and harsh nature of the Wasteland for the very first time, and although she is mere feet from the place she had lived her whole life, she couldn’t be further from home. How will she adjust to the horrors lying in wait around every turn? Where could Velvet Remedy have gone, and for what reason?

What does the future hold for our heroine in the making?

EBC Weekly #9: Episode 2 is Done

Good news, everyone!

Episode 2’s episode audio is done! Now before you get all excited (actually, get hype), we have a few bits left to finish before we can air. This includes finalizing art, video (for Youtube release), and promotion. We will be airing the episode with our station partners again, but I have been working to make sure the launch is smoother. Episode 1 was a huge hit, but we did not plan accordingly to handle everyone who tried to tune in.

Never fear, however! We learned many valuable lessons with Episode 1, and we worked tirelessly to fix them for this episode. We hope to reduce the wait time (for our own release) to 36 hours or less after the initial broadcast is aired. Will we have multiple broadcasts? Maybe? It depends on what works best for you and for the stations broadcasting.

Speaking of dates and times, we want to see when it is most conveinent for your to tune in. If you would like, please fill out this three question anonymous survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3XKF2FQ The results of this survey will help us when we schedule the broadcast.

In other news, we have gained a few more writers to help us churn out scripts, our VAs are hard at work on Episode 3 parts, and scripts for later chapters are now being written.

Look for a post sometime in the coming week for finalized dates and times. We /should/ be ready by then. Until then, please fill out the survey and keep on rocking!

Many thanks to RaptorNX01 for taking the time to make this amazing short of Velvet (Eileen Montgomery) singing “Already One Year” adapted from Korean by Radiohooves and arranged by Warbalist. 

EBC Weekly #8

Greetings all,

It seems like it has been weeks since we last spoke…. What’s that?  It has?! … sigh … Sorry about that.  Somepony managed to cut the power to the broadcaster, and we were in the dark until a certified Stable-Tec technician was able to splice some wires together.

Anyway, we are on our last stretch with Episode 2.  One of the songs has already been written and recorded, the cues have been completed, and our musicians are hard at work finishing up everything.  We’ve already received a few lines for Episode 3, and a few other VAs should be turning theirs in within the coming week or two.

We need writers!  We need editors!

Due to our increased production, we need to add script writers and audio editors on the team to keep the cogs spinning.  Do you have what it takes to convert the chapters of KKat’s Fallout Equestria into scripts?  Perhaps your talents lie with editing audio together?  

If you are interested in giving it a shot, send Dalken an email noting your interest and linking any relevant work you have done in the past.  It’s not necessary, but it certainly helps us get a feel for your talents.

dalken_starbyne@equestrianbroadcastingcompany.com

Thank you for your continued support!

EDIT:  Updated email address.  Both should work, but this one is the current one.

Open Casting Call for Writers and Audio Editors

Greetings all,

Apologies for the lack of updates from our end.  In a couple days, we will get you up to speed with an EBC Weekly.  We would like to ask for your help, should you be interested, in two areas we are in need of filling.

Due to our changing production pipeline, we now need to ramp up script creation and get more audio editors into the team.  Script writers are essential to helping us get lines to our VAs to voice, and audio editors are needed to assist the editing lead.

If you have any experience or feel that you can be a valuable asset to the team in either of those positions, please send an email noting your interest to Dalken at dalken_starbyne@equestrianbroadcastingcompany.com.  If you have done something you feel is relevant to the position you are applying for, please send links or information in your initial inquiry.  

Thank you for your continued support,

EBC Weekly #7

Greetings all,

We apologize for the lack of an update post last week, but music composition is going well. After the SFX’d audio was given the rubber stamp of approval, our musicians started planning and divvying up duties. Music is already in the process of being made, and we hope that it can fit well into this action-packed episode!

Until next week,

-The4thaggie
