I have cast 3 roles. Braden, Rayen, and Chris McManus. I have re-ordered the list of un-cast characters, from most important to least important. (Top to bottom) I especially need some auditions for Mukhtar Imran who will be a recurring villian. Thank you! And if you didn't get the part of Braden, Chris, or Rayen, try some of these voices below, or wait for further episodes with other characters.
Description: I know I'm new to this site, but I have been looking for a place to do voices for barter work on other projects. Looks like I finally found one! I have made many kinds of productions by myself. I do a lot of voices myself and I'm excited about auditioning for other projects too. This project, I've been working on for a approximately a year and a half. I want it to be a throwback radio series similar to The Shadow or other Super Hero radio shows before Comic books.
This series is based around a 20 year old male Martial Artist named Braden, who lives with his grandmother in Los Angeles. For his 20th birthday, he receives an ancient tomahawk that has the ability to copy, and store memory of, any inanimate object that the holder can carry. Around this same time, a terrorist cell, masked as a peace corps. Is going to have a private meeting with the Governor of California. Braden gets wind of their plan, and puts aside his calm life as a martial arts instructor to become Warrior. (In later episodes, The World Wide Warrior.)
This is a very busy time for everyone with the holidays. Extended deadlines are a possibility. January 1st 2010, However, Is my deadline as of right now.
