CASTING CALL for Spider-man: Kraven’s Last Hunt parts 4 & 6

CIRCUS-13 PRESENTS SPIDER-MAN in KRAVEN’S LAST HUNT parts 4 and 6, written by J. M. DeMatteis, adapted for radio by Timm Gillick in six parts.

Sergei Kravinov (aka Kraven the Hunter) has been a long-time foe of Spider-man, and eventually becomes obsessed with beating him. But not just beating him, completely overpowering him to prove that he is the better of the two. His plan is to get Spider-man out of the way and show that he can do better. A very dark tale of the web-slinger, it had a very unique style that I think adapts itself well to a moody, stylized radio play.

Recording and Contact information

-Record in 44100hz 16-bit Stereo MP3 or wav is fine.
-Save the lines as “charactername_yourname_linenumber.mp3” (ex: Iron_Man_Jester_01.mp3)
-Please put multiple files in a ZIP or RAR file and label it as “yourname_SpiderMan_auds.zip”
-SOUND QUALITY IS A FACTOR! If you send me files with a lot of puffs and pops and background noise, you’ll get rejected out of hand. A low steady computer fan noise is fine, I can deal with that.
-And please don’t ask me about your audition. Don’t ask if there’s any way to change it, you should be sending in your best take on the character. If you want to do it multiple ways, feel free. I usually try to respond to you when you send in an audition, but if I haven’t after a couple days (not hours, days), then resend it, please.
-Send your auditions to jester@circus13productions.com.
-Deadline for these roles is APRIL 30, that gives you about one month to get them in.

Okay, all the roles are only a couple lines each, so I’ll take the best auditions and use them in the actual production. This means that your sound quality is a DEFINITE FACTOR. Since there are only a couple roles in episodes 4 and 6 (and none needed for 5), I’m combining the last two in one.
