We are shooting a series of low budget commercials for a brand in New Zealand. Within the commercials, we are bringing to life the brand's logo into two animated characters, who help the live action actors with their problems in the scene.
We are ideally seeking one voice actor who can develop the sound and play both characters. We will provide a character brief and sides to any voice actors who want to audition for the role.
We are looking to record the voice over at the end of December in a sound studio in the UK. We anticipate it will be a 2 - 4 hour job for a good voice actor. There are 5 spots, and only a few lines in each spot.
Character 1 - "i"
“i” is an animated letter who is full endless, optimism. He or she a fast-talking, quick thinking, bouncy ball of energy. A glass-half-full kind of person. Think “Donkey” from Shrek. He or she is the sidekick to the dry and witty letter “f”.
"i" has a UK based accent, English, Scottish or Irish - we want for the voice actor to pick their own sound and create their own character style.
Character 2 - "f"
“f” is an animated letter with a level head but a big heart. He or she says what’s what. To some, they may come off as a tad cynical but really, they just the sort of person that likes to get straight to the point. Think “Shrek” from Shrek. They're the sidekick to the overly energetic letter “i”.
"f" has a New Zealand accent. (We will accept auditions from people who cannot do an NZ accent, will allow them to pick an accent of their choice - just not North American).
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesTentative recording dates could be December 27, 28th or 29th - Will pick a studio closest to the voice actor.
We will conduct the casting process through an online and virtual process, including auditions which will be submitted digitally.
Fixed price of £1000
