Voice Acting Competition/Minigame

Voice the line from the previous poster, then post your own for the next person.


  • Scripts cannot be written for an expected recording length of more than 30 seconds. It can be as short as you like (“Blimey!”).
  • Scripts must be written for only one voice.
  • Scripts must be in English.
  • Audio must be in a format playable by VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/).
  • No foul humor, cussing, etc.
  • All submissions (scripts and audio) are released under the Creative Commons Attribution license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/) unless otherwise noted by the original poster. This allows animators to use the submissions in this thread for lip-syncing practice.
  • Script submissions must be compatible with the CC license. Content you create is always a good option. Quotes from public domain works, including those that have lost their copyright (e.g. those on Project Gutenberg), are also good choices.
  • Voice submissions must be original.
  • Have fun :slight_smile:


  • Experiment with inflections.
  • There are many ways to get around the limitation of having only one voice. Here is a list of just some things you could try: monologues, narration, phone conversations, and schizophrenia.
  • Voice effects are allowed, but should not be written into the script. You can, however, describe the voice itself (e.g. “In a robotic voice”).
  • Since this forum doesn’t seem to support attaching audio files, you will have to find a site to host the audio. http://www.audiohostings.com/ seems to have a good list of the free audio file hosting sites.


Now lets begin, shall we?


“Ouch! Watch where you’re pointin’ that thing!”
