I'm holding voice auditions this week for my upcoming series of animated shorts based on my webcomic, "Guinea Something Good." I have only gotten one female audition, so if you'd like to audition, I would love to hear some more options. The auditioning has a tentative end date of March 6th, but I may push that back depending on how many auditions are sent in.
Here are the details:
I am currently developing my webcomic "Guinea Something Good" into what will hopefully become a weekly series of animated shorts, about one to two minutes long each. So interested parties should be willing to commit to a long-running project. In exchange, I will be offering a commission of 3% (negotiable) of any profits generated from the videos via YouTube ad money/Newgrounds, etc (that you've recorded voice over for). Right now that won't be much of anything, but I'm hoping for this to gain popularity at which point that percentage will start to gain significance. I'll send out a contract specifying details when I finalize the voice actor decision process.
The series will contain some swearing (although pretty rarely). Not sure if I can write them on this board, but these are the types of swears I've used in the past (again, rarely): s**t, b*****d, b**ch, damn, godd*mn and the use of Jesus as an emphasis of frustration. Other than that, it's pretty clean. No f-bombs, sexual innuendo, or toilet humor.
Included is a sample comic with Gemma, the role I'm seeking auditions for, so you can see a sample of my writing style and her character.
Here are two samples of animations to get a feel for how this will be animated.

The animation style will be in-between these two. It will rely on rotating arms, legs, hands, heads, etc as opposed to full animation. Object-based animation. This will allow me to create animations more regularly.
(Don't allow Joe's voice to influence your performance. That's just me and I'm by no means an actor, as you'll be able to tell. That was more of a test cartoon.)
Voice Type: A young adult female. Probably an American accent, but possibly British, and open to new interpretations. Medium pitched voice. A reserved, scientific, even-tempered character. Please voice her as you would voice a human character.
1. Joe, there are so many reasons I can't do that, I don't even want to begin to explain. So instead I'll just build you one.
2. Just because you can imagine something doesn't mean it's possible.
