Casting characters for animated series pilot
Over the weekend I was contacted by a guy in India who knows me from the animation community. He's working with some friends to develop an animated series that they want to pitch at MIPCOM this October for European distribution. He came to me asking for help with the voices for the pilot, and I offered to spread the word and help coordinate the casting process.
The series is about the life of animals in a traveling circus. There are six characters in the pilot: two lions, a tiger, a monkey, a trainer, and a psychoanalyst. All but the monkey are written as males; the monkey only screeches, so I suppose that could be voiced by either a male or female.
Each episode will be 4.5 minutes long, but the pilot will only be two minutes. While my friend is aware of the costs involved in getting the actual series voices done, he and his colleagues are paying for the pilot production out of their own pockets, and don't have a lot to work with. That said, he is willing to pay for the talent who record the pilot voices, but unfortunately I haven't received any actual dollar figures re: their budget, so I have no idea what they have in mind.
Auditions are due to me no later than Friday, July 16th. If you're interested, send me a PM with your e-mail address and we'll go from there. Thanks!
