Auditions & Call-outs

If you are an actor and / or a creative artiste who wants to be kept in the know about future auditions and call-outs, please subscribe to Bryan’s newsletter.

Below are some projects for which I am looking for people to join. Scroll through, and if something appeals to you, make contact and let’s talk….

‘Black, no sugar’

an audio series – voice actors / narrators  and a composer / musician wanted

Pre-production is in swing for a new audio-series of short stories. They’re all black and twisted, and compelling.

Each story will be released individually as a podcast, and collated into an audiobook anthology.

We are looking for up to six voice actors / narrators to record the stories; and a composer / musician to create a title-theme or song

Recording can be remotely or at a studio in Bathurst NSW.

Payment is negotiable with successful talent. The project is supported by the Australian Cultural Fund through their Boost 2024 initiative, through which the ACF will contribute matched funding of up to $5000. If you can donate to this fund, we’d be forever in your debt… even $1 will help. (Please note, contributing to this project will not guarantee engagement… but you will feel warm and fuzzy.)

Voice-actors / narrators, please note that some subject matter may be confronting and disturbing; please do not audition if material which may offend or that features socially taboo subjects make you uncomfortable.

On the audition form on the contact page, you will be required to enter the following:

  • your name and contact details
  • the role(s) for which you are applying
  • a short bio / introduction, no more than 50 words
  • optional: website and social media links
  • a link to your reading(s) of the excerpt supplied for each role
  • a link to a contrasting audition piece up to one minute in length (this can be an alternative reading of the supplied excerpt, or your own chosen piece)
  • a link to your VO reel 


Below are the details of the voices we are looking for.

Musicians / composers, details of what we are looking for will be posted here soon. Return here in the next few days, or subscribe to be informed when information is released.

This is the series website.


The roles

  • All ages and ethnicities considered
  • All require excellent Australian English language ability

Narrators will be credited on the Black, no sugar website, along with a bio and links to their preferred online profile.

Composer / Musician

For our audio-series of the ‘Black, no sugar’ stories, we will be commissioning a title track or song, which will act as the identity of the works.

Ideally we are looking for something in style of these Leonard Cohen works:

  • I’m Your Man
  • Darkness
  • A Thousand Kisses Deep
  • My Oh My

 

A song would be great, but we’re also open to an instrumental track. The most important thing we are looking for, is a very dark feel

The artist selected for this commission will work closely with Bryan, the producer, and production / recording of the work will be at a studio in Bathurst NSW.

If you would like to tip your hat into the ring, please drop me a line with some examples of your work, with particular reference to that dark feel.

Are you a Film-maker?

Another ‘Live’ Radio Theatre – closed
