Hello! This is a post relevant to those doing animations or similar that involve voice actors.
Since I know a lot of animators will be finding their preferred voice actors shortly, I've compiled a little thing for you to help out with your individual searching for VAs. Just copy and paste the named list into your individual VA auditions, if you'll have them.
Voice Actors: the lines provided are merely examples
and you will need to talk to the individuals needing voice actors about their specific needs.
Voice type: Condescending and cruel; quite and withdrawn; dark and broody
Short Bio: Vampire; leader of the Chateau and its staff
(Pissed off) "Eh… no"
(Condescending) "You're not very bright, are you."
Voice type: Sour and pessimistic; annoyed and broody, "Eeyore"
Short Bio: Living scarecrow; gardener
(Pessimistic and lazy) "I could show you the greenhouses if you like, but the plants haven't grown very well."
Voice type: Laid-back, but not relaxed; very efficient; independent and ignorant; like a bartender
Short bio: Swamp creature; chef
(Laid-back) "I'm going to smoke. If you don't like it, you can get out."
Voice type: Medium high to high; chipper, cheerful, energetic; talkative; little Indian girl
Short bio: Mad scientist; body of a little girl; smart and calculating; psycho
(Innocently) "This won't hurt… that much. Just sit back, relax!"
Voice type: Forcedly personable; kind of like your mom's annoying new boyfriend that tries to be your new dad mixed with a bit of Willy Wonka; scruffy
Short bio: Werewolf; bouncer
(Excited) "God, this suspense is killing me! Make it last!"
Voice type: Soft-spoken; shy; respectful
Short bio: Zombie (not a stereotypical dumb one); butler
(Neutral) "I believe this suite will be to your liking"
(Curious) "Would you like something to drink, sir?"
But, if you have a better idea for what a character would sound like, go ahead and go with that. These are our ideas, but of course we're open to yours. In fact, we'd love to hear your ideas!
If you are one of many in need of VAs, there are a few groups on dA that you can pop into to search for voice actors. Some of these are: #VoiceActing
, and #DAVoiceActors
Additionally, if you know your voice actors already, or have voice-acting experience, go ahead and note #SpookChateau
and we'll put you on a list of VAs.
Disclaimer: Something to keep in mind is the fact that the staff of #SpookChateau
actually has little to no collective experience with making a flash film or comic. So if you need help with a program or the like, please don't turn to us in a hurry. ): Because we likely won't have an answer.
