Catching Up With The Casting Call

This January, ACX and Audible Studios teamed up to bring you our latest open casting call. The New Year, New Gig casting received hundreds of fantastic auditions and gave actors the opportunity to have their voices heard by Audible Studios’ team of industry-best producers.

41cMJ8sfmjL._SL160_Paul Heitsch is a regular reader of this blog – you can subscribe in the upper right of this page – and saw the announcement we posted at the beginning of January. Chatter about the contest in Facebook narrator communities further spurred him into action.

“After reading the script, I just took to it right away,” he says. “It’s a beautifully written book, and the characters are very vividly drawn. I just felt that I knew these people, and I know exactly how they sound when they talk. I attribute that, more than anything else, to being chosen for this book. I felt so comfortable in this material. That allowed me to give a really good read in my audition.”

Paul has wrapped production on The Game Player. Look for the book, and listen for Paul’s read, on Audible in March!

51cEANprFJL._SL160_ Amy Landon, the actor cast as the voice of Hidden Steel, was relatively new to ACX when she auditioned for the casting, having waded in with a number of shorter titles since the fall of 2013. She knows her strengths, though, and auditioned for Hidden Steel because it fell right in her wheelhouse.

She shared these words about her latest project: “Hidden Steel is in a style I work on a lot, and really enjoy and feel comfortable in. I do a lot of romance and in particular a lot of cheeky, saucy heroines. Hidden Steel definitely falls in that category, though I think with a bit more mystery, intrigue, and action thrown in. The book is super fun, exciting and funny!”

You be able to hear Amy’s read of Hidden Steel on Audible in April. Stay tuned to this space for information on our next open casting, in conjunction with VO2014 in Atlanta!

  2. Great tip / link about the FB narrator community.

    So, how would “you” narrate “tip / link” ? It’s discussed on that pg!

    I’m an author, but found the discussions fascinating! Thanks so much! 😉
