Hello there, my name is Colin. I am an 18 year old amateur animator on Youtube. I'll tell you right off the bat, I make animations with MsPaint and Sony Vegas. But before you start judging, take a look at some of my work:
Alright, right now, I am currently in the middle of production for a web-series I had in mind. The title is still a W.I.P, but as of this moment it appears it is going to be Metropolis Man.
The series is set in Portland, Oregon in the year 1989. It is about a 19 year slacker old named Toby Amador who's world-renown multimillionaire business tycoon parents, Jacob and Alice Amador, kick him out of their lovely suburban mansion so he can go and experience the real world. He is expected to do this by going to live with his 27 year old scatterbrained cousin, Eric. His roommates, Darell (Snotty Inventor) and Klyde (The guy who is literally never home) accompany him along the way. Of course, there are several bumps along the way, mostly involving day-to-day occurrences - excluding Doctor Woe, a mysterious, evil man who's only goal is to swindle the Amadors out of their fortune - by taking out their own son. Life isn't always what's expected.
The series is a major W.I.P, with no guarantee of success. Although, I already have the Pilot/First Episode written, and some basic main character designs done. Also, with the animation style I'm planning on using (Very subtle/simple) with short episodes (5 - 10 minutes) I hopping I can get the first season done in a relatively decent time period. That said, I'm not exactly sure how many episodes will be in the first. I'm thinking no more then 10, but no less then 5. So hopefully you guys will be willing to give me a shot.
Now, all that is said, here are the characters and the voices I need-
(Note: The designs are fairly rough)
Tobias S. Amador - 19 Years Old
He's a decent kid who just can't figure out his calling in life. An average guy. His voice will need to be crisp, but young sounding. I was thinking something along the lines of Dipper from Gravity Falls. If you don't know what I'm talking about-
Jacob P. Amador - Mid 40's to early 50's.
The Tycoon himself, Mr. Amador. He's a very charismatic and intelligent man- although a bit disappointed in his son for not being able to live up to his standards. His voice will need to be strong and commanding, sort of like King Neptune from Spongebob-
Alice Amador - Early to Mid 40's.
A loving, kindhearted woman- Mr. Amador's wife. Don't let her appearance fool you, she is anything but soft spoken. Her voice would need to be nice and soothing. She also needs to sound her age. I can't really think of any examples for her, but I'm sure you guys will be able to think of something.
Eric Amador - 27 Years Old
Eric is a a laid back dude who doesn't really have much going on for himself right now. Not much of a drive, but he's far from dumb. His voice is a is what I consider a 'Cool guy's' voice. Think a mix of an 80's surfer dude with just a hint of stoner. Not too exaggerated, though.
Darell Morris - Early to Mid 20's.
Darell's a genius, an inventing wizard. But he's also indifferent and rather sarcastic. He's not a bad guy... just not a very social one. His voice isn't really nerdy, but crisp like Toby's. Just a bit deeper. A bit. Also, he's black, so he has to sound black. But not too black. I'm not racist.
I do not have a picture of him right now, still working on his design. He's just an evil guy with a really deep and menacing sounding voice. Think old cartoon villains, just not so exaggerated.
Those are all the main characters for now- still working on some side characters for the pilot, but I'll get to them once I have all the mains cast.
No if's, and's or but's about it. I plan on making this good, and I can't do that with crappy voice over work. Sorry guys.
If you are interested in a part, please email me at I rarely check my PM's, so please just email me. I will give you some test lines and we'll see how you do.
So that's about it for now. I'll keep this post updated as everything goes on.
Thanks in advance!
