    Cast & Crew Needed for Friendship is More Than Magic - The Unofficial FiM Successor


    So there seems to be a possibility that the Friendship is Magic series might be ending after next season, but that doesn't mean we have to let the story end!  DHX might no longer produce pony after Season 9, but who's to say we can't?  I know there are plenty of Flash Animators, Storyboard Artists, Music Editors, ponies who can do nearly identical impressions to characters from the show, ect., and if we all came together to collaborate, we as a fandom could keep making our own episodes of pony, well beyond the end of it's TV life.  We can save the story from ending, we can keep the Equestria we know and love to continue progressing!
    How can you help? If you can do an awesome imitation of a pony from the show, if you know how to animate in Flash, if you can storyboard, if you can create backgrounds, if you can edit and/or create background music, ect.we can use all the help we can get!  This is no easy task, and every helping hoof well help!  So make sure to spread the news of this!

    What if I don't have any of these skills?  Don't fret!  You can still help!  Just spread the word about the project to anypony who might be able to help!
    I would like to note, that this will be all voluntary work, I want to keep this project as far away from financial gain as I can.
    For most of the crew, just send me in a sample of what you can do.  These episodes will be made in the style of FiM itself, so keep that in mind when creating your samples.
    It's a little bit more specific for voice actors/actresses.  You MUST have a clear mic with no white noise, and you MUST provide a voice sample of the character you are auditioning for.  No foul and/or inappropriate language in the voice samples!  Voice samples are accepted in MP3, WAV, OGG, and FLAC file formats.  ALSO, don't be discouraged if somepony else has said they could do a voice.  This is not a first come-first serve basis.  I will review any voice samples I get, and choose which ones I feel are the best, and even if you don't get a mane role, you still might be cast as a background/extra voice.  If you're looking for a microphone, the Blue Microphones - Yeti, or the Yeti Nano, should be two good microphone options.
    The specific voices I will need are listed on the MLP Forums thread.
    All proper position volunteering and voice sample auditions should be e-mailed to this address: friendshipisnotmagicf[email protected]gmail.com (you can also ask in the thread, but you must have an e-mail regardless if you asked in the thread or not.)  There is also a Casting Call Club page if prefer to audition via that.  
    There will certainly be other ponies' voices I'll need eventually, and I can always use background/extra voices, so even if you don't match anypony on the list, feel free to audition as a background/extra voice if you wish!
    This is a list of the names of the first five episodes, along with their synopses.
    • E1&2: Equestria's Secret Pt 1&2:  Princess Celestia and Luna invite Twilight and her friends to a secret meeting in Canterlot Castle, not to recite the story of Hearth's Warming, but to reveal Equestria's true past.
    • E3 (Pilot): Culture Swap:  Applejack sets Applebloom up to be in the summer student exchange program, but Applebloom doesn't want to go.  However, the exchange week might turn out to be more difficult for Applejack rather than Applebloom.
    • E4: Baby Carrot:  When the CMC are asked to watch Fluttershy's animals for an evening, the fillies accept, only to be overwhelmed, and Applebloom decides to take the 'Emergency Potion' to be able to communicate with the animals.  Thanks to an accidental extra ingredient though, the potion has some unexpected behavior, that might just seal Applebloom's fate as a mindless garden eater.
    • E5: Out With the Old Cutie Mark, in With the New:  When Pinkie Pie thinks that her parties are no longer appreciated, she begs Starlight to give her a new Cutie Mark.  Starlight reluctantly agrees, and all seems well with Pinkie Pie and her new Cutie Mark.  That is, until the new Cutie Mark makes Pinkie focus on her new fancy restaurant more than her friends.
    If you have any questions, feel free to post them in this thread.
    Thank You for taking the time to read this!

    Help! My Heart is Full of Pony! - Representation



    "We’ve all heard the rumors that FIM is going to be cancelled, and replaced with a G5 reboot. We all have our own pet theories - hopes, and dreads, and wishlists of what is to become of the franchise.

    A good-hearted, well-meaning friend of mine recently wrote a small essay about his. He said that he hoped that in G5, there would be more male protagonists. (His rationale was that it would help young male pony fans not get bullied.)

    I could not possibly disagree with this sentiment more."
