………………………
Howdy all. It's been a few years since I seriously worked on my comics, and that's been for a variety of reasons (school, work, lack of motivation, style changing etc.) I've kind of gotten tired of the way I did do them and my ultimate goal was to make a cartoon series out of them.

Well, I hope to start doing that soon (eta 6 months at most), but I can't figure out for the life of me who could play the characters voices. This is where YOU come in.

It'd be great if I could get some people willing to record their voices for the cartoons I'm planning. If you're interested, pick a role or 2 or 3 to voice below, and send an email to zacfreundt(at)gmail.com (replace the at with @ sillys) with the files attached of you acting it up voice wise. Just say the few choice quotes I've got below. You could also free style afterwards too (in character).

I can't pay anyone at the moment, but if I'm pleased after the first one is finished, then maybe we can all work something out.

I'm excited about hearing what you can sound like (moreso finding that right voice for my characters). :o

I'll inform you if you get the role (it may be a week or two, I want plenty of people to give it a shot) I'll shoot scripts out at you guys asap also

I'll say the cut off for submissions is the 25th of December? Sound good?
you can check up on the comics on my account page (though they're quite old and the cartoon probably won't look too similar, though it may give you a more concrete look into the character. I strongly approve of your reading it)
—–Characters—–

Amy: A girl with a headband, easily irritated, bored with life. Age 17-18 Also has “weird dreams” where she's fantastical races (Elf) D: Like okay!

“A propa-what-son?!”
“Life check, one, two, one two. Is anyone up there?”
“What kind of ridiculous name is Problems?”
“Or…how about…you go die in a fire :D”

Chrissy: A bubbly, energetic idiot. Though sometimes wise in her care free ness ness ness
“You've got some pretty horrible stuff in here. Seriously, you've got like Superman. Superman blows.”
“I'll bet I can shout at him right now and he'd never notice!”
“Whatcha' doin?”

Lucie: A fiery hot headed impulsive girl. Just wants to quit her “job”
“But I like my horns! I..I could just poof people away. Aww, c'mon at least let me keep one. One's not obvious, right?”
“Have you noticed we never get anywhere plot-wise”
“The faster we find her the better. I'll bet she's just wreaking havoc with her new found freedom”


Arthur: Your typical “how'd I get into this situation” guy. Think harem. >_>
“I just know I'm going to die here.”
“Uh, sure! Just don't jab me in the eye with your horn…”
“Mom, I'm home. You won't believe the hell of a day I've had”

Rodya: He's on a mission, from God.
“Time to take care of fruitcake over there.”
“Alright! Let's do this! Here I come, Sis!”
“Shut up, you don't know anything about that!”

Orias: A cocky arrogant, pretty boy evil sonofagun.
“Here's the part where I tell you to take notes, Crat. There's never a wrong time to flirt.”
“I'm surprised you stuck around, Rodya. Waiting to sell your sister back again? I'm sure she thinks you're just the sweetest brother.”
“Blahblahblahblahblahblahblah” (Make it sound convincing)

Problems: He know's he's awesome. Smug and totally righteous. Confident and well spoken

“Howitgoin?”
“Relax, I'm coming too. :D”
“We've got to find a way back to her! I was this close to bringing her back out”




Satan - Do I need to describe him?
“I mean the name gives it all away.”
“Gabe? More like Gayyybe”
“They're girls…with supernatural powers…and horns. I mean HONESTLY, how HARD can they be to find!”



Minor Characters:

The Professor: You know, that professor quality voice.
“I think with the right tuning, we can listen in to her dreams”
“It's not that she's stuck, per se, it's that she wants to continue to forget.”


Crat and Stern
Think Bulk and Skull (lolliterally)

Just use the above quotes. or whatever.

Which one is Crat?
If he's the skeleton, then I'm going to be sending in a file for Crat.

Maybe one for Problems too.

disqualified for being british. but I really think you should try other places too, I hear there's a strong community of voice actors over at newgrounds you could try!

Ditto here.

But try moseying down to the Voice Acting Alliance forums.


But seriously, I'm raging at the fact that I don't have an American accent. D:<

I never said anything about accents guys.

You should give it a try either way.

I don't want to bring it to Newgrounds quite yet, as they're kind of you know…Elitists.

Thanks for the links guys.

I should have been more specific and said that my accent is lancastrian british, so normally my speech is very, VERY heavily accented, I can do most of the english accents, but I wouldn't call myself a professional. if you get desparate, I'll maybe give it a shot.

Sounds like fun in a basket of fish. I'll be sending some audio of all the male characters, or at least how I hear them in my head. Hopefully you'll like one of my renditions.

I'll probably try out for Authur, but I doubt my recording equipment is good enough. All I've got is a Tesco value headset with microphone…
FIGHTSPLOSION 5!!! IT HAS 2 ALIENS, A PIRATE, A HORNY NINJA AND A HOMOCIDAL FIRE PRODUCING PENGUIN! AND A BIRD WOMAN AND A CAT WOMAN!

Also a mute that reminds me of Johnny Bravo and Samuel L Jackson at the same time!

I reckon I could get a professor voice going. Done it before. But not a mad scientist, crazy, exited professor. That's the thing. I can make him sound intellectual and British though.

EDIT: oh! and I can do a pretty good rough Scottish accent. Do you think that it'd suit Rodya?

looks like the deadline is past….but are you still casting? If you are, I'd love to audition (got my first job on dd)! btw, you probably shouldn't look for vas at ng, despite what other people say. job hunting there is rather disorganized, and leads to fewer results that a producer probably wants (i know from experience).

but anyway, if i can clear time between other roles and projects, i'll totally be sending you something. of course, that also depends on when and if there's still a deadline.

This sounds like fun, but I always hate how my voice sounds recorded. I have a really cheap mic to so that doesn't help.
God needed the Devil, the Beatles needed the Rolling Stones, Hakoshen needs me.
I'm the enemy he requires to define him.
Soon or later, he'll bring me back to life again for another epic encounter of shouting about power levels and grimacing.
