I am currently writing the script for a lengthy flash movie entitled, Currently Untitled. It is a comedy / "musical". The plot follows seven people who are named after ancient Roman stock characters: Adulescens, Senex, Leno, Miles Starlight (Gloriosus), Parasitus, Matrona and Virgo (As you can see, there's a whole lot of bad parents in this world.)
To put it briefly, Adulescens, Miles and Parasitus are performing in an abysmal hard rock band called Starlight. They are signed to Leno's record label, where Virgo happens to work. She is the love interest of both Adulescens and Senex, which causes problems, since Senex also happens to be Adulescens' father. However, Virgo believes that the two are both disgusting, but nevertheless tries her hardest to act "cute" around them because she doesn't want to hurt their feelings.
For all of the animators and voice actors interested in collaborating on this project, please visit the following link:
This link contains a .zip file with four files contained within it: a more detailed character sheet, two sample scenes, (both of which are .DOC files), a raw demo version of one of Starlight's "songs" and a sample image that will highlight the style of animation that I am looking for. I highly recommend listening to the MP3 file after reading the two .DOC files because it will make much more sense in the context of the script.
VOICE ACTORS ONLY:
In order to take part in this animation, you will need to send me a sample of your work as the character you wish to perform as. You are allowed to either create your own dialogue or act out lines from one of the scenes included in the .zip file. If this doesn't work the first time, I will try to provide constructive criticism for you and you will be allowed to make a new recording. It should also be noted that Matrona and Virgo, even though they are important to the story, do not have as many lines as the other characters and there are no lines from them in the excerpt (though they still have their own descriptions in the character sheet.)
Like the voice actors, you should send me a sample of your work. Even though I did not draw the animation template and it was never meant to be used as one, it should still be used as a general guideline for the style that should be used in the animation. Although it is a bit pixilated, you should be able to get the general idea of the picture. The characters are also dressed in leather and have long hair, similar to the picture.
So, if you would like to participate in this project, please reply to this post or send me a private message. I look forward to working with you guys! :-)
P.S. On the âEUoesongâEU, âEUoeThereâEUTMs a Bomb on My HeartâEU, the three voice actors for the members of Starlight will have to âEUoeharmonize.âEU
P.S.S. If there are parts of the script that you aren't particularly fond of, let me know and we can try to fix them so we're both satisfied.
