Hey all, my name is Lord of Pirates (AKA Captain Phigg) and I serve as one of the humble servents of Sogen Con. Here's a brief right up of my voice actor idol activity that will be present on Saturday.
Voice Actor Idol is a tournament style competition where contestants will show off their voice imitation and invention skills before our panel of guest judges. The contestants will be placed in groups of two, whoever recieves a higher score from our panel goes on to the next round. The total number of contestants admitted to participate in the event is 16. After three rounds we will have two winners who will recieve our prize and perform in one last round for the audiences entertainment. Here are the three rounds:
Imitation: This round consists of our contestants presenting their own imitation of an already English dubbed anime character. They have a maximum of thirty seconds to present their character in any situation they choose. They will be judged on originality, accuracy, and delivery. (16 participants)
Flexibility: When our audience enters the event, a select number will be asked to submit suggestions to our host. They will be asked to write down two English dubbed anime characters (a male and a female) and a scenario. The contestants will then have to do their best to meet the two criteria. They will be judged on how well they portray the scenario, accuracy and delievery. (8 participants)
Invention: In the final round, participants will be given an image of a random anime character. They will have to develop the voice for that character on the spot based on the characters description. They will be judged on how well the judges feel they represented the character. (4 participants)
That's the basic idea of the event. If you want to participate then please show up to the Voice Actor Idol booth on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning to sign up, sign waivers, and recieve a designated number. If our desired number is reached we will close the booth until the event. If a registered participant does not show up at the designated time we will offer their spot to a willing audience member. MOST IMPORTANT, IF WE FAIL TO RECIEVE A DESIRED NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS THE EVENT WILL NOT TAKE PLACE. Please keep this in mind when attending. Thank you.
