Sony Music Japan opens auditions for VEE Tuesday, July 20, 2021. VEE is Sony Music Japan’s foray into the VTubing scene. It aims to debut over 50 virtual talents in what it refers to as the “largest virtual talent development and management project in history.”
Under the tagline “VTubers are human, too,” VEE laid out its vision for aspiring VTubers who want to make their dreams come true, in line with Sony Music Japan’s business to discover talents.
VEE’s promises to aspiring VTuber applicants
Likewise, the project gave its three promises to aspiring virtual talents: (1) They will not distinguish its VTuber talents from other talents under Sony Music Japan, (2) They will not provide shortcuts for the big stage, and (3) They will not take away their character.
Auditions are open for any gender and nationality, ages 16 above, as long as they are residing in Japan. Minors need parental consent. It will end on September 30, 2021. VEE also showed the audition process. A document screening is conducted first. Then, an Online Interview will await the ones who passed the initial screening. Afterwards, a Final Screening will be held, including an interview at Sony Music Japan’s office in Tokyo. Lastly, a debut will be prepared for those who passed the final screening.
