:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow: [1] OVERVIEW (Can't give away too much yet)

:bulletblue: this fan-film will take place shortly after the events of Mass Effect
:bulletorange: Archangel has nothing to do with the Mass Effect Homeworlds comic released several weeks ago
:bulletblue: the fan-film is not intended to be canon, there will be several changes/additions
:bulletorange: Garrus Vakarian will be the starring of this film
:bulletblue: we will see how Garrus became Archangel and what his motivations were
:bulletorange: major locations will be the Citadel, Omega & Palaven.
:bulletblue: it will be a full feature length fan-film (at least 90 minutes)
:bulletorange: this is only the beginning of Archangels story...
:bulletblue: all future wallpaper and screenshots will be released here on my deviantART account.
:bulletorange: I will release more minor informations about the plot and characters over the next couple months

ARCHANGEL will be my first feature length fanfilm set in the Mass Effect universe created by Bioware (EA). This project is not affiliated with Bioware/EA, it is purely a fan project and 100 % non-profit. The release will be in 2013 (hopefully).

There will be a weekly status update on wednesday :)

Couldn't work the entire spring season on the film for reasons of health (didn't took a missile to the face or arrow in the knee but something similiar :D ) Now i'm ready to rumble again!

:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow: [3] CONTACT

I would prefer if you could contact me via email or here on deviantArt via note. But i'll also check my youtube inbox ;)

:bulletblue: I'm not looking for WRITERS or MUSIC COMPOSERS anymore, but i will contact everyone who has sent me an application until now
:bulletorange: Feel free to contact me for caption translations into different languages for the finished fan-film. The english captions will be done by one of the writers and I would send you the english caption template so you can create a good translation :) Any languages are welcome and it would be great if somebody could create english captions for hearing-impaired persons. I'll translate the subtitles into german ;)

:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow: [4] VOICE ACTORS

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: (still looking for voice actors)

You are free to send me a demo reel if you are interested in participating in this huge fanfilm as a voice actor. Be aware that this fanfilm is 100 % NON-PROFIT so nobody (not even Garrus) gets a single penny.

What to do?:

:bulletblack: Record some random dialog lines of your choice from the Mass Effect games
:bulletblack: try to voice various ME aliens
:bulletblack: you can apply the voice effects yourself or i will do it
:bulletblack: the more different aliens and personality types you voice in the demo reel the more fitting the role can be that we will find for you :)
:bulletblack: send me the demo reel here on deviantArt, on Youtube ([link] or via email at
:bulletblack: Auditions will be held until spring 2013 so there is more than enough time to find the right voices for the right characters
:bulletblack: The actual voice over recordings will start from late spring to summer 2013 and will have to be finished until a certain deadline (i'll annnounce the date later).

I'm looking for these voices:

:bulletblue: Garrus Vakarian (somebody who sounds similiar just in case i can't win over Brandon Keener for this fanfilm)

:bulletyellow: you should sound like him/about his age (not just voice him like any character)
:bulletyellow: Brandon Keener has given Garrus an unique way of talking (emphasis on words, pronunciation etc), you should study this speech-style and try to impersonate as good as possible
:bulletyellow: in your demo reel please use quotes by Garrus for direct comparison (the closer your impression gets to the original the better!)
:bulletyellow: the goal is to have a similiar voice which doesn't sound too distracting (because it's not the iconic original voice)

:bulletyellow: it should be like with Mordin who was voiced in ME2 by Michael Beattie and in ME3 by William Salyers -> Mordin's voice in ME3 sounds okay/fitting and not distracting, although in a direct comparison to ME2 voice files you can hear a slight difference. That's what you should try to achieve for your Garrus impression.

This is the most important and most difficult voice actor role!

:bulletyellow: Just in case a wonder happens and Brandon Keener is going to voice Garrus in this fan-film he will definately get the role, even if i have chosen somebody else for the role of Garrus before so please don't be disappointed if this happens, unlikely buuuut not impossible :)


(the characters should sound like the mentioned years, you don't have to be that age)

:bulletblue: Vazar (Turian 29y.) -> you could re-dub his teaser trailer lines for example ;)
-> he is cold, calculating, calm & intimidating

- Krogan (35-55y.) [in human years^^ not krogan]
- Batarian (35-50y.)
- Turians (30-45y.)
- Salarians (30 - 45y.)
- old noble Turian (45 -75y.)
- Vorcha (??? normal adult vorcha i guess)
- Human (30-50y.) (for a merc, you could make a re-dub of the Blue Suns Merc's teaser trailer lines for example ;) )

- old noble Asari (40-65.)
- Asari (25-35y.)
- very young Asari (5-7y.) can be voiced by any female
- Turian (25-40y.)
- old noble Turian (50-65y.)
- Quarian (25-30y.)
- Vorcha (^-^)
- Salarian (25-40y.)
- Human (25-40y.)


- lots of joy working on this Mass Effect fan project :)
- good English language skills (unlike my derpy english^^)
- a studio quality microphone (good sound quality and no background noises & rustle)
- enough free time for your voice recording sessions. You will get at the minimum 3 months to record all your lines in your personal Archangel-script and all the time following until i announce a deadline.

- please make sure to leave out any sound effects or music in the demo reel, just 100 % voice :)
- be aware that i won't have any roles for teenagers, i need voice actors who don't sound too young

Harsh requirements i know...but the priiiize :iconlegionthrustplz:


:bulletorange: my eternal gratefulness :worship:
:bulletorange: of course you will be mentioned in the end credits!
:bulletorange: an exclusive sneak preview of the finished fanfilm before everybody else can watch it (plus an early download link of a custom DVD/Blu-ray image & digital custom movie score)
:bulletorange: you are free to include your voice over scenes in any future demo reels of your voice acting career
:bulletorange: if we ever meet in real life: AN EPIC HUG :hug:
