• Nightly Roundup #665


    In the past couple of days I've been introduced to the Doctor Who series by some friends of mine and I have had a hard time stopping (hence why I didn't do the Roundup last night). It's such a fantastic show so I'm hoping to get caught up on it as much as I can when I have time.

    Anyhow, have some Doctor Whooves for tonight! Now on to the news!


    The Problem With Being A Brony

    This interesting picture below talks about many of the 'Problems' about Bronies and answers to these commonly thought of problems. It's quite an interesting thing so take a look!

    Successful Meetups

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Madrid Bronies Meetup


    Copy Paste:

    This past Saturday, the members of Spaniard Hooves' community from Madrid had a great day at the meetup made in the 2013 edition of the "Expomanga" in Madrid. Since some Bronies and Pegasisters saw us (and we saw some that were easy to identify thanks to their great cosplays) we all got together and had a great time! We were almost 50 fans of My Little Pony, all singing songs and having a good time!
    We took some photos of the event, although it proved a challenge to have everyone stay still for the picture! And a Pinkie Pie fired off her Party Cannon to celebrate the occassion!
    We also had a small exhibit where we showed what MLP merchandising we could inside the Expomanga. The location wasn't the best, but those that came by to see it really liked it!

    Groups/Meetups/Guilds Looking for More

    One Trick Studios Looking for Voice Actors

    Copy Paste:



    1. Before auditioning remember that this is a major project, that will take years to complete. If you do not believe that you will be able to help us for that amount of time, then do not audition. Also remember that Sweetie Belle is the main character of this and thus has lots and lots of lines. Seriously, Episode one aside, the average length on an episode is roughly one hour, give or take, and we are planning on trying to update every other month.
    2. When recording your audition, say these lines, and only these lines:
      1. Dumb Fabric.
      2. Rarity! You ruined the surprise!
      3. I really want to learn magic, I never want to be that scared again.
      4. Is that what she thinks of me? Even after all that effort?
      5. Aleister’s correction to the statute of limitations proposed that the primordial approach for understanding transmutation was flawed because Prestidigitation itself allowed for too many changes with a single spell formula.
    3. Be sure to say each line three times (except for the last one, you can just say that one twice)
    4. When editing together your auditions, go ahead and cut out any bad takes/lines, but do not edit together mutable lines/takes together into a franken take. Also, do not filter out your background noise, and be sure to leave five to ten seconds of room silence either at the beginning or end of your recording.
    5. When saving your audition, Please save it as YourName_CharatorName (ie Norcon72_SweetieBelle)
    6. Save it as either .wav or .aif/.aiff
    7. Send it to [email protected]
    8. Have fun

    Journey of the Spark - Rainbow Dash Needed

    Copy Paste:

    Hello again! This is Eric from the Journey of the Spark project. Recently, Jenny Nicholson, the voice of Rainbow Dash in Journey of the Spark stepped down from her role in the film.

    Because of this, the team and I have decided to hold an open casting call so that we might be able to find a new voice actress for Rainbow Dash in the production.

    Below, we have a video talking about all the full requirements and guidlines on how to audition for the role!

    Fantasy Soft Needs Some Help!

    While only tangentially pony related, JanAnimations and ever lovely Bree Faith are working on a new project they are hoping to get kicked off the ground. Since we like hearing about what people in the fandom are up to I thought you all might be a little interested!
