Spirit Stars is an animated show I have imagined for the past few years that I would like to try and get started. For now, I want to make some animated shorts with these characters. This first short is just about them playing a certain video game.
Video Description of Natalie Candler Here
Spirit of Fire - Bright, Invigorating, Headstrong, Temperamental
Natalie is as intelligent as she is adorable. She believes in open-mindedness and fairness above all else. She hates ignorance and injustice, and will not stand for it. She is tomboyish and though normally nice, her temper needs to be left in check. Her voice should sound like a leader, but not too old, and must adapt between sounding cute, proud, enraged, and even dark.
Denise = Closest Friend / Rival
Kalina = Like a Little Sister
Lin = Mentor
Similar Characters - Lisa Simpson, Kenshin Himura, Lina Inverse, Light Yagami (YES! Light Yagami)
Accent - American
Line 1: I'm Natalie. If you have a challenge for me, bring it on. I'll take anything you can dish out.
Line 2: In that case, I suppose ignorance really is bliss, eh, Denise?
Line 3: Don't worry, Kalina. We'll always be friends. That's a promise.
Line 4: Damn, Lin. You sure don't go easy on your sparring partners, do you?
Line 5: Mark my words. I will change this world, even if it's the last thing I do.
Video Description of Denise Here
Spirit of Water - Fluid, Flashy, Creative, Cunning
Denise loves to be the center of attention. Anything that does not hold her interest, she does not care for. She may be naive, but she is seductive and crafty. She is very feminine and tends to argue a lot, but fears physical violence, as well as death. Her arrogant behavior makes her Natalie's opposite; as such, her bark is worse than her bite. Denise's voice should sound slightly older than Natalie's, a bit snobbish, and a little hip-hop oriented.
Natalie = Closest Friend / Rival
Kalina = Playmate
Lin = Natural Enemy
Similar Characters - Bulma Briefs, Rouge the Bat, Ino Yamanaka, Naga the Serpent
Accent - Slight Hip-Hop (Note: Denise's lines may contain excessive swearing.)
Line 1: Hey. It's your girl, Denise. I won't bite. I promise.
Line 2: Look, Natalie. Just cuz you don't see it my way doesn't make you right.
Line 3: Oh, Kalina. You look sooo cute! I just wanna cuddle you.
Line 4: Why don't you ever smile, Lin? You must wanna be alone for the rest of your life.
Line 5: Hey, some people are just born with it all. I'm living proof of that.
Kalina Xasquez (Ka-LEE-na YA-skez)
Video Description of Kalina Here
Spirit of Wind - Gentle, Supportive, Compassionate, Peaceful
Kalina only wishes to make friends and be helpful any way she can. Since she's been sheltered most of her life, she's not sure what to expect of the world, yet she wants to learn as much as possible. Very observant, but emotionally sensitive. She fears pain. Kalina's voice should sound timid, but very sweet.
Natalie = Role Model
Denise = Friend
Lin = Protector
Similar Characters - Princess Peach, Hinata Hyuga, Tohru Honda, Mikuru Asahina
Accent - American
Line 1: Um, my name is Kalina. Let's be friends, okay?
Line 2: Natalie, thank you so much. If there is anything I can do for you, please tell me.
Line 3: Um, Denise, I am grateful, but this feels a little uncomfortable.
Line 4: I'm so sorry. I messed up. Please, forgive me, Lin.
Line 5: We shouldn't be fighting. Please, let's calm down and try to talk this out.
Lin Wu Shao
Video Description of Lin Here
Spirit of Earth - Steadfast, Indifferent, Strong, Severe
Lin Wu has a strong will; however, her demeanor is cold and dark. Her speech is very direct, leaving no flavor in her words. She is always serious, not bothered by most things, but seems to have a soft spot for Kalina. Lin is a Chinese-Japanese American, but she is mostly American. Like Natalie and Denise, Kalina and Lin are opposites. Lin Wu's voice should sound cold, dark, and serious.
Natalie = Pupil
Denise = Natural Enemy
Kalina = Damsel
Similar Characters - Raven (Teen Titans), Blaze the Cat, Hajime Saitoh, Meta Knight
Accent - American (No Asian Accent)
Line 1: I am Lin Wu Shao, but you may call me Lin. Everyone else seems to like that instead.
Line 2: I have no patience for stragglers. If you are serious, then stand up, Natalie.
Line 3: Let me ask you, Denise. Do you feel it is wise to forfeit your life at the expense of provoking my anger?
Line 4: Uh, it's fine, Kalina. Everything will be okay. Please, stop crying on me.
Line 5: Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. You hurt my friends, I hurt you.
Though these lines are mandatory, I also encourage voice actors to contribute extra lines they may come up with. If you wish to audition for more than one character, that's perfectly fine. I also encourage voice actors to send multiple auditions for the same character. If you feel you have a different voice in mind for the same character, I'm more than willing to listen. Tara Strong is my favorite voice actress and she did two auditions for Raven of the Teen Titans. The second audition influenced the Raven's recognizable voice.
Since I plan to make multiple animations with these characters, I want to take a while to find voices for them so the deadline will be March 28, 2010. I'd like to use the same voices for multiple projects, but if you only want to voice these characters for this single animation, that's fine. Let me know.
To submit, email your audition to firstname.lastname@example.org (WAV or MP3 Format), or you may post a video response to the corresponding character. The YouTube videos have images that are associated with the audition lines which may help depict how the characters should sound. Please know that I will listen to each and every audition, even if I do not respond. Thank you for your time.
