As shown above I'm looking for several voice actors for first episode of Sadmoons visual audio drama (audio/radio drama but with some visual content such as backgrounds, characters and pseudo-animation).
It is planned to be a one season web series so I would prefer to work with VAs who are content with longer commitment as their characters will be coming back every now and then (I'm not looking for your guarantee but for simple will to act in future episodes).
Now, to the details:
Audition deadline - October 31st.
Recording and Contact information:
-Record in 44100hz 16-bit Stereo MP3
-Save the lines as "charactername_yourname.mp3"
-Send your auditions to email@example.com
Age: about 25 yrs old
Bio: It's a really fun character. He appears in the story only talking with one other man named Jacob and it seems like they both were once gods. But, for some reason, they have been entrapped within human bodies and have to stand their miserable lot. The situation leads to several intriguing discoveries and realizations about human nature and value of our lives. Nevertheless, Esau is mainly just a smart ass while Jacob, as opposition, is calm and reasonable.
Voice type: I wouldn't like it to be plainly rude. I would like the character to have some more depth and intelligence behind the voice. However, intelligence doesn't equal wisdom so I would simply like him to be an angry, powerless, yet amusing man.
Accent: whatever suits you, really, from American to British, it makes little difference to me.
Voice type: mid to high range; whatever suits you best
Audition line 1: "They are restricted, Jacob. Bloody restricted! Fools, gamblers, cheaters... Not that I never tried those things, but they are incapable of logic, harmony, working towards the good of them all. And gods? We turned our home into heaven and kept it that way."
Name: Cog-Table Albioneer #1 (nameless character in this episode; his name shall be revealed in future episodes)
Age: about 35 yrs old
Bio: One of three people who really pull the strings in Gothia, I would call him "the man" but it sounds just plain silly. He is the person really making the decisions and working from behind the curtain. A bit dark, intelligent, powerful character that we don't yet know much about. He is this sort of dictator who believes he cares of his nation in best way possible.
Accent: certainly British
Voice type: mid range; confident, rather cold (pure intellect) than warm (heartful/emotional), calculated
Audition line 1: "So it seems. Man was loyal to us for fifteen years. His files show that he left his wife and daughter and lived rather lonely and miserable life ever since the divorce."
Name: Cog-Table Albioneer #2 (nameless character in this episode; his name shall be revealed in future episodes)
Age: about 45 yrs old
Bio: One of three people who really pull the strings in Gothia. I imagine him as rather greedy, soulless man who really cares for nothing but himself although is responsible for people's lives (solid politician personality, I believe ). He says very little and usually just adds words not bringing much to the discussion.
Accent: certainly British.
Voice type: preferably high or mid; sort of a voice that reminds you of an older guy with glasses on his long nose, a bit squeaky voice.
Audition line 2: "Not according to our agents. She lives over three hundred miles away from Albion and judging by his activity he hasn't left the city yet."
Name: Cog-Table Albioneer #3
Age: about 45 yrs old
Bio: One of three people who really pull the strings in Gothia. This is a very special character as he plays for both "teams": the Government and the rebels. He is a character you usually do not have in stories, who sacrifices himself for the people. He is one of three manipulators of whole country, one of those bringers of misery, a man who controls a lot and could change a lot but he doesn't, not just yet. He waits for the best moment, collaborate with the growing force of anti-Government revolutionaries and dedicates his whole life to pretending he is a heartless man, while in the same time does a lot for the city and the people (buildings and places such as parks, libraries or bridges are named after him as they were gifts to the city). He speaks little and his dialogues are either about saying things that are expected from him to be said or things concerning common citizen. I have some big plans for this character so please do not submit your lines if you are not willing to do this character in the future(!).
Accent: certainly British.
Voice type: mid to high; warm, calm voice
Audition line 1: "Impossible, man is an awakener. Once they find their new religion they become close to fanatics."
Name: April Rosenberg
Age: about 16-17 yrs old
Bio: She is a teenager brought up her well-educated mother who, after divorce, decided to move out of the capitol and live in the country. She is in typically rebellious age. Says only four lines but is very significant for the script. I plan to use her in second episode so I need a person who is willing to do her lines in a few months.
Voice type: low to high, I'm actually very open and keen to try something surprising with this character Feel free to apply your own interpretation basing on her bio and lines.
Audition line 1: "Here, there is a fourth plate as should be properly prepared. Dad is coming back, mom, I told you that many times."
