Some talents and voice producers have told us that they were rushing to create their auditions and proposals so that they could make the cut and submit it before a project would reach its limit of auditions and proposals received through SmartCast invitations. Since rushing for an audition will, most of the time, result in a lower quality, we challenged ourselves to come up with a solution. Here is what we did:
Starting today, when you decide to accept a SmartCast invitation to submit an audition or proposal, you will get 60 minutes to do it. We did this in the attempt to give you enough time to produce a quality audition.
You will be able to complete your submission even if the SmartCast audition/proposal limit for that project is reached while you are working on your audition. You can now feel comfortable submitting the best audition and proposal you can for every invitation you accept!
Please keep in mind the following as well:
- You will be able to secure the 60-minute time frame as long as the SmartCast audition/proposal limit hasn’t been reached by the time you accept the invitation and as long as the project has more than 60 minutes before it reaches its date and time deadline.
- This feature does not apply to direct invitations. When you get a direct invitation you WILL always be able to submit and audition or proposal even if the SmartCast limit for auditions or proposals is reached.
- Voice seekers can always close projects manually and, as such, the 60 minute period may be cut short. This doesn’t happen frequently, though. Remember: projects don’t get closed when they reach the SmartCast audition/proposal limit. Projects get closed automatically, when the deadline is reached, or manually, when then voice seekers does it.
We hope you find this feature useful. Would you mind sharing your thoughts about this new feature by posting a comment on this blog?
