Hi folks, Mark here ( www.imdb.com/name/nm2967510/ ) from previous videogame voice acting calls such as Doc Apocalypse and Tales. Not representing others this time though, now I'm on a journey of creating my own works, so am looking for a selection of voice artists for characters in my own adventure game: Mr. Maze.
It's a 3D adventure story with numerous characters and speech moments. It's a simple game as I learn and experiment. There are a couple of main characters (some of which are already cast with my trusted talent friends) but many remain open. There's an opportunity to provide 5-10 lines as a sort of unpaid cameo, and a couple of larger positions that need to be filled.
Peter Porter. Male lead, age 35-40. American/English, lines roughly 200 max. Peter is the father and the player character. He should sound likeable and determined to find his daughter. Payment negotiable, at a minimum of 100 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like describing your search for your missing daughter.
Penny Porter. Female lead, age 7-13, American/English, lines roughly 50. Penny has gone missing, she has a small section in the middle of the game as player character. She is cheeky and fun. Payment negotiable, at a minimum of 40 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like describing your love for mazes.
Please note: English is preferred, but will accept American or other accents, providing both Peter and Penny can line up with this (ie both have the same/very similar accents).
Big Jim. Male supporting character, age 30-40. American/English, lines roughly 30. Well, he looks exactly like Jim Sterling, but Jim Sterling won't reply to my emails for VA, so someone else can play him, lol. I'm happy for the voice to be it's own thing here, you don't have to do a Jim Sterling impression. So a jolly and perhaps a little goofy man whom is fat would suit the in-game character. Big Jim sells junk (very much like a snake-oil salesman). Payment is negotiable with a minimum of about 30 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like in a bid to sell me something rubbish, like a pencil case or coffee mug.
Velvet. Female supporting character, age 20-30. Any nationality, lines roughly 30. Velvet enjoys mazes but is somewhat paranoid about myths and legends. She is a bit jumpy and agitated, but friendly. You bump into her several times. Payment is negotiable with a minimum of about 30 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like trying to convince me of something like ghosts or Atlantis are real.
Jennifer Porter. Female, age 30-35. American/English, lines roughly 15. Mother of Penny and wife of Peter, Jennifer plays a small role. Payment is negotiable with a minimum of about 20 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like complimenting your daughter Penny and your husband Peter.
Ferry man. Male, age 30-40. American/other, lines roughly 15. A young ethnic man, look at me, look at me, I am the captain now, kinda guy. He helps the player traverse a large portion of the map in his little boat, so is a little more friendly than the Captain Phillips foes...! Perhaps he's a little more zany, like Eddie Murphy. Payment is negotiable with a minimum of about 20 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like telling me about your amazing boat.
Mrs. Burnham. Female, age 40-50. American/other, lines roughly 15. Something a bit like the Oracle in Matrix or older ethnic woman who is kind and motherly, oh lordy! She helps the player solve a puzzle and is generally happy residing inside a maze. She finds it better than having to work for the DMV. Payment is negotiable with a minimum of about 25 GBP.
AUDITION: Please send a few lines in as many styles as you like describing how you woke up one morning on a tropical island.
Numerous voices, M&F any nationality, any age. NPC anyone? Throughout the game the player can find certain objects where voices describe previous events, or may bump into people who deliver a simple one or two lines as they pass. This can ultimately be anyone and anything. In most cases, those who audition for other parts but do not get the roles, will be offered the chance to provide lines for "Numerous Voices". Those undertaking other roles may also be offered some additional lines for "Numerous Voices". These will generally be 10 lines max reading some thoughts or a poem like element.
AUDITION: Please audition for one of the other characters.
NOTE: Yes, auditions are not set lines. I'm looking for folks who can embrace the 'acting' part of voice acting, so the ability to invent and make a character of your own based on some loose guidelines is important in this instance.
Turnaround: Things are moving pretty quickly on this, and the aim is to release the game in November. So, turnaround would be sometime in November. As such, you should be generally available over the next 4 weeks. If not, please consider another project with a more distant turnaround!
Payment: Payment is made with PayPal, at the end of the month following completion of your work. You should have a PayPal account to participate in this casting call.
AUDITIONS ARE NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU!
Thank you for your consideration and good luck! regards, Mark L
