Job Description

We are looking to cast a voice actor for a Male demented evil lunk type character that will be in S2 Games' forthcoming title, Strife. This will need to be a high quality recording that can be delivered in .wav file format. Most of the lines in the script will be short responses to user inputs into the game.

The specific voice that we're looking for is similar to that of the giant white orc in this video (http://youtu.be/77EXGi5vpOQ?t=24s). It needs to sound malicious and driven. The lines themselves are assemblages of mostly monosyllabic words so this read will be tricky in that the character needs to seem conscious and with-it, or an agent making decisions for himself so to speak, but won't have a lot of space to do it within.

What this voice needs to avoid is sounding like a simpleton/caveman where the few words come off as a struggle to form more complex thoughts, or sounding like the Hulk where the overbearing emotion of rage precludes the formation of longer more complex sentences. These are the verbalizations of a being who is competent at what they're doing, but aren't doing anything all that complex.

While the reference provided above is close to what we're currently thinking, what's most important to us is that this is a dramatic read and that the voice has some sort of distinction to it - some kind of "it factor" that grabs our attention and makes us listen - so don't feel constrained by the above examples.
