my name's Andrew, and I'm in my final year of University/College doing an animation course in Australia. I'm just finalising my script at the moment and thought it was about time I get some voice actors on board.
The animation will be a comedy, and will be about a bunch of crappy mobsters from America, whose bosses son gets kidnapped and held for ransom. So the 'henchmen'/'boys' need to go and collect money by doing various violent and hilarious things. Blah blah there's a big twist at the end and it turns out to be not what it seemed all along. If you're still reading then you're probably still interested. I'll be happy to send out a demo script to all those who reply/send an audition.
Basically, there are 6 main characters...heres some concepts so far
The sort of 'main' 3 are Danny, Small Paulie and the Boss.
Here's a basic character description of each guy.
Smooth talkin Italian dude. Always trying to calm people down and think logically about things.
Easily distracted kinda New Jersey type accent. Always figgity and never keeps still.
Big kinda tough guy Italian dude. He's the boss.
He's crazy, kinda ethnic, think maybe like N. Gin from Crash Bandicoot? Just an idea.
Classic Italian buff dude. Could either have a huge boomy voice or perhaps a comically high/weak voice.
Thick italian accent. Puts random vowels on the ends of words.
WHAT TO SAY IN THE RECORDING:
Danny: Keep it cool, Boss. Just act calm, and we'll be outa here before you know it. Don't be stupid, you needa keep it together!
Paulie: Yo Tommy, talk to da boss. Make sure he knows not to do anythin' stoopid
Boss: No! Are you kiddin' me? What are we gonna do!? And what the hell is this!? It's not even real money! This isn't gonna work, Danny. We needa come up with another plan!
Louie: Where are we's gonna get some cash like dat!? We dont just have that kinda dough lying around!
Lenny: Alright boys, the boss needs us. We needa get this money, and fast! You boys know what to do.
Tommy: Excusa me old lady! I needa some helpy!
Feel free to improvise and add in a bunch of other lines to demonstrate the character, I encourage that actually! Also feel free to audition for more than one character
If you want to send an audition (I know you dooooooo!!!) then send a decent quality recording to:
DEADLINE FOR AUDITIONS WILL BE 15TH JULY THANKS GUYS!! If it's a day or too late, that's cool too. Not in any rush JUST YET.
