I'm currently looking for two voice actor's or one if your THAT good :] It's for a new series of Flash animations based with a sort of sherlock holmes vibe. It's mostly drama roles, however there are comical moments in the script. Here are a few character descriptions as well as the lines of dialogue I would like to recieve from you as an audition.
Our main character and protagonist of the Victorian era arc of the story. Hugh is a detective inspector with the police force. He is about 5'10, brown haired, moustached and wears the typical fashion of the era. He comes from a fairly wealthy background, educated, street-smart, tough despite the look of his average build. He's fairly reserved, keeping most of his emotions in check. He is respected by the majority of his peers, pretty much hated by the criminals he has put away in the past. Both friend and foe know that it would be foolish to cross him, although he doesn't put across a particularly aggressive nature. Before the story begins Hugh has in private proposed to a woman who captured his heart. Like him, she wanted to help people, utterly selfless she wanted to help the poor women on the street resorting to prostitution to earn a living. Throughout the story Hugh's character gradually becomes more aggressive and deteriorates due to his heartbreak and the seemingly unending crime and violence he faces.
In effect Hugh's sidekick. Arnold is a short man, not educated like Hugh but street smart coming from a poorer background. He is very loyal and looks up to Hugh as his mentor. Has a very cockney esque accent.
So those are descriptions of the two characters i'm looking to start with and if you could send a recording of the lines below as well as possibly a link to your VA demo reel (if you have one) to [email protected], that would be awesome.
Shot of Hugh looking sternly down at the body, the rain running down his face.
Arnold: Another day, another body eh boss? (Pause) Do you think they're linked? I mean this is the third one we've found like this.
Hugh kneels down on one knee and reaches to pull off the blanket, transition of shot we see his hands tense as he sees the body.
Arnold: (Pause) Boss?
Hugh: This one's different.
Hugh puts the blanket back down, getting up he makes a sign to the bobbies to attend to the body. He moves past the bodies blocking the alley from the public, Arnold keeping up behind him.
Hugh: She was a charity worker trying to get women off the street
Arnold: How'd you know that? There ain't nothing on her.
Shot of Hugh's face slightly darkened at the top, Arnold visible over his shoulder looking confused.
Hugh embracing a curly haired woman in a doorway, Hugh placing the same ring on her finger as on the body.
Out of memory sequence
Hugh: I saw her in the paper.
