Hi there! I'm Docga, or ThePlatypusEgg on YouTube. I animate a lot. I'm now making an animated series called Boulevard.
It is mostly a comedy, but will have many plot-based elements.
Here's an unlisted YouTube preview link: Try not to share this too much, it's kind of sort of secret. Click here for it!
I desperately need a crisp adult male/teenage-ish voice for the brown-haired fellow in the animation. If you'd like an example of what I'm aiming for, look into Dipper's voice from Gravity Falls.
(Dipper is the young curly-haired guy with the tree hat.)
I am also accepting voice actors for Percy and Isaac, although I myself can voice Percy. If I find a better Percy, though, I'll accept it!
I will also need a minor female role for the small scene in which Percy invites her to a date. If I cannot find this, no problem, I can get a friend to do it!
Remember, none of these characters have overly-cartoony voices!
Thus, don't go too nasal when you try out or exaggerate syllables! They mostly have crisp, relatively realistic voices with sometimes exaggerated emotions.
Alright! It is fairly necessary you understand the story first.
So here it is!
The story does have an overarching plotline, which begins in episode 4 and involves a ghost girl.
What is it about?
Boulevard takes place in a young man named QuinnâEUTMs house in an unknown country where you can legally marry a broom and only taxi drivers drive on the left. Percy, who is implied to come from America, somehow arrives here as a part of âEUoeHouse HuntingâEU (in which you stay a night from house to house until you find a place to stayâEU¦ itâEUTMs basically for people who want a fun life/are too lazy to buy a house of their own). Quinn lets him in and ends up allowing him to stay for split house fees. WhatâEUTMs the rest of it about? Read on to find out the planned episodes!
Episode 1: Strangers
Quinn gets a knock on the door from a âEUoeHouse HunterâEU named Percy. Percy claims he works for âEUoeF.R.U.I.T.âEU, which stands for âEUoeHouse Hunters International.âEU Despite QuinnâEUTMs confusion, Percy requests to stay the night as a part of his program. He asks for just one night, and after some convincing, Quinn finally agrees. Quinn is worried about his debts to pay off his house but soon finds out that Percy is actually extremely rich after inheriting a fortune and allows Percy to stay for a while if he splits the monthly house fees.
Episode 2: Broom and Bride
Quinn is called by his friend to be the best man at his old friend's wedding to his broom. He gets a huge impromptu report on the day of the wedding, however, and canâEUTMt make it. He gets Percy to go for him, pretending to be Quinn, but things donâEUTMt go as well as expected. Not that expectations were high, anyway.
Episode 3: Date Night
Percy meets a cute girl while at a clothing store and asks to see her the next day. Not knowing the area well, he asks her to go on a date with him the next day to a restaurant she seems called Ray's. He goes the next day and meets a quirky young man named Isaac on the bus, but doesn't find her there. He ends up going to the restaurant next door called Boulevard since he doesn't even like Ray's food, and he runs into Isaac there again. He talks to Isaac for a whole and finds out that there are many Ray's in this area. He also finds out that Isaac is very talented and is looking for an inspirational place to stay. Percy tells him about Quinn's backyard, which is quite scenic, and Isaac goes to visit.
Episode 4: Acquaintances
Quinn meets Isaac and Isaac moves in since Quinn discovers he is well off. Meanwhile, Percy apologizes to the girl he had met for the mistake while playing video games (thus getting over it quickly). Isaac finds an amulet in an empty drawer and takes it out. He ends up dropping it. Perhaps because of this, a ghost begins appearing around the houseâEU"but none of the three ever seem to notice.
Episode 5: Silver Spoon
Percy asks Quinn whether he has any pudding in the fridge, and Quinn, baffled, asks what pudding is. Percy finds out that pudding has been illegalized in this country and incites a small rebellion.
Episode 6: What Glows Around Comes Around
Quinn finds an odd amulet on the ground that doesn't seem to want to leave him, no matter what he does to get rid of it. The ghost girl starts to follow Isaac, but he still doesnâEUTMt seem to notice in his annoyance of the impossibility of the amuletâEUTMs riddance.
Episode 7: Everybody Hates Isaac
Isaac installs canned laughter throughout the house and sets up bad puns in attempts to be funny and make life more like a sitcom. Percy and Quinn get quickly annoyed and try their best to make it stop without sounding threatening.
Episode 8: Body Bag
Percy and Quinn go to the mall and play a joke by leaving a mannequin in a bag in the car making it look like a body. They come back to find cops and a real person in the bag and try to figure out what happened. A mystery-like episode.
Episode 9: Fine Lines
Isaac decides to paint the amulet and ends up making the most beautiful painting he has ever made. The scary thing is, however, he slightly subconsciously paints a ghost. This astounds and confuses both Quinn and Isaac, although Percy doesnâEUTMt seem to get why this is a problem. He ends up being the first to see the ghost face to face, and thus season 1 ends.
WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERS LIKE?
Quinn: A brown(and curly)-haired guy who worries too much. He likes to have fun when he can, but he's very busy with his job at Gill&Sons bank. He is the one with the crips, Dipper-like voice. This is necessary for him because this voice is very unsure and realistic. He usually wears exceptionally formal or exceptionally casual clothing, not usually in between. Basically, his "church clothes" would be a full-on expensive suit and nice pants, whereas his "everyday clothes" might be shorts and a t-shirt.
Percy: Blond, spiky hair. Likes wearing sweaters and jackets when he goes out. Very carefree and filthy rich, although he never really acknowledges it--he just spends money when he feels like it. He's very kind and has very good manners, but can accidentally be disrespectful in his jokes sometimes. He has a very fun-loving and fairly fast-paced voice, and it usually isn't worrisome.
Isaac: A prodigy at everything. He can program, paint, draw, play instruments, and do many other things. Spiky brown hair, and almost always wears a beret with a feather on it. He enjoys long-sleeved painters' shirts and jeans. His voice can range greatly, as long as it's not too nerdy or deep (or high).

Percy- "Come on, chill out. It'll just be one night." "So what's up with this restaurant? Is it, like, really popular or something?" "I'd so beat you at that game."

For the female character, I'd prefer if you were actually a female, and you can send in something like, "Yeah, I'd love to! There's this great place called Jay's, wanna try it?"
And NONE OF THEM SOUND ANNOYING! d:
