Auditions open until March 17th

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 17, 2010, 5:12 PM


Announcements and Reminders

According to the clock, we're now 10 minutes past the deadline.  However, the Host just got back from work and it will take her a couple hours to get everything together, so if you have any last-minute entries, now would be the time to submit them!!  Send a note to the Host, RobinRone to apply!  Once this journal is updated with the list of auditions, no more entries will be accepted.  If you are concerned about being able to finish on time, please see the information below regarding incomplete entries.  Best of luck!

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:AUDITIONS OPEN UNTIL MARCH 17th! :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:  

Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 at 24:00:00 UTC - Internet Clock of UTC.  Auditions must meet the requirements outlined in the Audition Guidelines AND the Character Sheet Guidelines to qualify.  DON’T FORGET TO NOTE THE HOST TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY! We will reply with a confirmation that your entry has been received, or a notice that you must resubmit if the entry does not meet the requirements

:bulletred:  INCOMPLETE ENTRIES - For those of you who may just be joining us and don’t know if you’ll have the time to apply, be aware that you are allowed to submit incomplete entries if you need to (see the Late Policy for more details).  They will be graded with a penalty, as compared to a complete entry, but if your character depth and creative ideas are strong enough to stand on their own, you may still be able to get in.  At minimum, you must have (1) a completed character sheet (information only.  Image not required) and (2) a summary of what the story portion of your audition would have included.  INCOMPLETE ENTRIES SHOULD ONLY BE SUBMITTED AS A LAST RESORT.
**EDIT:  The character Image portion of the reference sheet is considered the LEAST important element of your audition.  If you submit a completed profile and story, but without an image, you will NOT be penalized for it!  You'll just need to get one up before the start of Round One in April.**

:bulletred:  STORY-TELLING METHODS - Your method of story telling can change at any time, including in the middle of an entry.  Click here for an example.

:bulletred:  VOLUNTEER ARTISTS - Need an artist for your Character Reference Sheet?  We have put together a list of amazing and wonderful volunteers who are willing to work with you to make character sketches to match your prose. Some are willing to work out of the kindness of their hearts (marked as :bulletgreen: Volunteers) and others for a reasonable commission fee (marked as :bulletblack: Commission) according to their terms. See the comments of projectminotauroct.deviantart.… for the full list!

:bulletred:  Please consult the Frequently Asked Questions page before contacting the Host directly.  Thank you!

I hope some more people show up, though, since it would be really sad if this died due to lack of people. I feel kind of lame for cheesing it with a written entry, but there is no way I would be able to hold a comic entry together long enough and well enough.

Oh well. Onwards! :iconherotimeplz:

One last question- I sent my audition, bio, and picture to you, and one of the judges read it. Do I still need to note The Host now with them, or was sending it straight to you all right?

You can send it to the host, or to this account. Since you sent it to this account, we have received your entry and it is in the list of entries. Don't worry, we got ya!

This is going to be a busy weekend...

Gah so close! I'm so excited!(XD I'm frantically writing up my character bio right now.) How many people have sent in their auditions now, since it's so close to the deadline? (DX I've been slacking on mine a bit, and I think I know a couple people who're doing the same thing.)

I'm signing up! I'm signing up! :ohnoes:

I'm just...still trying to get the bio for my character written up without accidentally turning it into a novel... Then I have to draw up the audition story, all while doing mid-terms!

Just tell me this... :ninja: What's the competition like for team Hermes so far?

Team Hermes has exactly...0.

Which makes me very sad, as I'm a Hermes fan.

Hey, guys, don't forget the character page artists! We're here to work, and, hey, quite a few of us are freebies. If you're a writer, we're here to make sure you have a drawn character for reference.

That's it, I'm going for the emergency plan! Text-comic hybrid will happen, or there will be no color on this thing, and it craves color. Craves it like candy!

I'd better remind :icontirrih: about this too since I'm at least partly responsible for getting her interested and her character is going to be awesome (I totally cheat and know about this since we've talked about it and I've seen drawings and stuff)!

Enough talking. Back to drawing my audition! Rarh!

I'll move the heavens and earth if it's needed! Which it hopefully won't be, seeing as people would probably get a bit angry if I upset everything for the sake of posting an audition. :)
But seriously, I will post something, I just hope I can manage to make that something a bit more polished than what I have now.
