Okay, so this project has audition deadlines. ....But they're really, reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally far away. Like, in September.
Anyways, here's the info. This series is called "Collection" because it's a series of animated short films based on short stories I've written, ending with one long one that you won't know anything about until the last minute. This is an audition thread for all of those films.

Available characters: Veo, Rivera, and Winter.
Veo: 20 years old, male. Genetic experiment who cares about nothing but Caracal (not an available character). Ends up snapping from the frustration of his love not being returned.
Lines: "No! You don't need them! You're all I ever needed; why can't you just need me back? That's all I want! That's. All. I. Want—! Get away from us!"
"You're easier to love when you're calm."
"They can't hear you. Please, Caracal, just stop, you've torn up your fingers-"
Rivera: 40 years old, female. She's the less rational of the two scientists, more emotional. She acknowledges that Veo and Caracal are human instead of just experiments.
Lines: "Do I look like I'm laughing? It's the truth. Caracal and Veo are human, no matter what we label them as—whether it be experiments, mutations, science projects…"
"Like what? Like I actually acknowledge that they're people who think and feel like me or you?"
"I'm pretty sure experiments like this were illegal at one point."
Winter: 40 years old, male. More rational of the two scientists.
Lines: "She's starting to think for herself, Rivera."
"Yes, like that! Just shut up! You sound like you care for them."
"She can see us, I swear, Rivera, she's going to get through, she can see us, she's looking right at us—"
Available characters: the psychologist.
The "Psychologist": 30 years old. Female. Psychologist specializing in paranormal activity.

"Your gift is very dazzling, but we both know why I was called in."
Available characters: Jane, Mrs. McAllister, Lilith's boyfriend
Jane: 17, female. Sensible.
Lines: "Are you...sure you're all right? You're acting strange."
"Lilith...what was that phone call about?"
"I didn't know it was hers; I saw it on the ground and answered to see if maybe the owner were calling to find their phone."
Mrs. McAllister: 40 years, female. Angry with Lilith (her daughter).
Lines: "LILITH MCALLISTER, YOU MUST HAVE SOME NERVE TO FINALLY ANSWER THE PHONE WHEN YOUR FATHERAND I HAVEN'T HEARD SHI-"
"Oh.Please forgive my language. May I speak to my daughter?"
"Well, if you find her, let her know I called. Tell your parents the McAllisters say hello. Goodbye."
Lilith's boyfriend: 18, male. A bit dumbfounded about everything.
Lines: "Lilith? Lil, is that you?"
"Lilith, I'm not leaving. You're Jane, right? She loves you. Can you please convince her? That she should... That she should, uh, keep the baby."
"But she doesn't care about what I say anymore...Actually, I'm not sure if she ever did."
Available characters: Bernd, Evan, copilot, taxi driver, doctor.

"She can't fly anymore...Sh-she's dead."
"You're in a cage. I guess that means we already have something in common."
Adam's mother: 40, female.
"Well, your father and I are worried about you. You don't get to go outside, so you can't interact with anyone besides us and your doctor Mr. Marron. Most sixteen year old boys have friends-"
Adam's father: 40, male.
"Adam, you know that we had no idea that our children would-would end up like this."
