Hello everyone! I'm Amelia, the producer, editor, co-director, whatever you'd like to call me for.......A TASTE OF DEATH. Yes, that's right, a tragedy novel, short film series, movie, whatever in the making.
So before I get into the introduction...I wanted to say that almost everything I say here is already on this link: www.castingcall.club/projects/taste-of-death-audio-tradegy PLUS, it's where all the lines are listed so go there.
OK, onto the goodies!:
My great friend, Andy has created this brilliant story just from the inspiration of a song called, "Never Ever Getting Rid of Me." Anyone who knows Waitress The Musical, knows what I'm talking about.
Anyways! My friend got that spark of inspiration and started to brainstorm a bunch of different characters and their back stories, which are still being made till this day. So far I think there are OVER 25 characters. Each one will be introduced throughout this book. And keep in mind...this is sorta like a NOVEL. I imagine it to be as big as Stephen King's Horror books, except these aren't extreme horror. They're more of a mix of romance, drama, crime, thriller, and all that good stuff. It basically a book smashed together with a bunch of genres, but let's just say it's a tragedy. C:
OK! On to explaining the actual story summary.
ATOD is about a man named Mathew who gets teleported into the underworld (We'll find out why later in the story) First place he wanders into is a little cafe called, " A Taste of DEATH," where he meets, Melody the skeleton, who he thinks is his TRUE LOVE :3. Mathew begins to make friends along the way, who soon help him to try and get out of this "Hell hole" and to the otherworld. On this journey, he starts meeting more creatures and we catch glimpses of their hell of a life. He learns about their lives and in return for their kindness and support to get him back home, he tries to help them make hell a little nicer. The story starts to unravel dark secrets along the way, including the reason behind Mathew's appearance in the underworld.
(We can explain a little more once you're cast...plus things might change too)
Now, let's introduce the blood types in the underworld for the demons and what-not C:
(LOW BLOODS): The poor sinners who are obviously the dirt poor demons and whatnot.
(NORMAL BLOODS): The normal sinners or the not too poor, but not too rich peeps.
(HIGH BLOODS): The great and powerful rich sinners
Now those are the 3 different categories but in each category, the creatures are sorted into different colored blood types which can range from yellow, blue, purple, gold, pink, and ect.. There are even breeds that can have mixes of blood, both by color and status. For example: Someone can have a certain colored blood from the low bloods but they can also have a mix of blood from a higher rank or even another color from their own rank. This goes for any other color or rank. Hopefully it makes sense C:
Ok, so my friend has been working on the story for such a long time now and has been wanting to publish her book or even make an animation! But we know it will be hard to do that, so we decided to create an audio series! Although, we're still going to work towards making it into some kind of animation in which she's hoping to find some voice actors for in the mean time. Now, this series won't be starting right away because she's still in the process of writing the script, so think of this audition as more of a placeholder for each of the characters. We're like a few chapters into the story but not all character have been introduced and we might change a lot of what the characters say and whatever. (Keep in mind this is a NON-paid project)
Now, if you want to audition for any of these roles, you MUST BE DEDICATED! That's a must. Here let us set a few ground rules:
1. You NEED a discord (PUT IT IN THE DESCRIPTION OF YOUR AUDITION 0-0) if you have an email you can list that too. Any contact information is great! C:
2: You NEED A good mic...little to no background noise or static
3: You need to be available most of the time but there are EXCEPTIONS!
4: You must be able to send lines in on time and no stalling!
5: And like I said before, be DEDICATED!
6: This might be a long-term project so you must be patient.
All of this is common sense, just wanted to state the main things C:
-Save files to a mp3 format, if not it's ok.
-Take a max of three takes for each line
-Each character should be separated into different files
-Label your audition file: (CHARACTER NAME) - ATOD (Your username or name)
- If you're sending by email make sure that you have the full project name or just, " ATOD," and then put AUDITION and your name at the end. (Just organize it nicely so that we can tell what auditions are from who and all that good stuff.)
You are free to audition with a DEMO REEL if you like as well, because the characters on the casting call aren't the only ones, there will be WAYYYYY more.
DEADLINE: JULY 25th - CDT (Time is not set. It might be in the middle of the day.)
Here is my discord if you need to contact me about anything C: Amelia#1286 or my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join the server: discord.gg/FEVpbKN (Not official server that you'll end up in if you get a role....this is another audition "room" to audition and if you have any questions.)
Have a great day fellas!
