Job Description

Smorgasbord Productions is looking for voice-overs for a 7-minute animated promo tentatively called ‘Mad Man’. It will be featured on the Internet and will be pitched to networks and may later go onto TV.

Concept: A slapstick office comedy about an eccentric boss with a terrible temper and the employees who put up with him.

Characters:

DB: Eccentric boss with terrible temper. A big man full of self-importance. Booming, gruff and menacing voice one minute and whining the next. (MALE)

Jesus Rodriguez: Early 20’s, good-natured and always positive Latino man. Has Spanish accent but not too heavy. (MALE)

Morgan: Cool, calm, intelligent and hard working with a bitter streak. (MALE)

Terrance: Silly, crazy goof. Speaks nonsense. A bit obnoxious and overbearing. Determined to do as little work as possible. (MALE)

Jon: Technical engineer. Negative and sober man. Speaks in very controlled manner. (MALE)

Brooke: Native American woman who talks with a Southern accent while still distinctly Native American. Serves as accountant. Raspy voice from heavy smoking yet sexy. (FEMALE)

Script:

DB: What is this!?! Did I say you could come in? … Did I say you could talk? … Did I say you could breathe!?! Why can’t everybody just do as they are told? Is that too much to ask? Are you still here!?! You’re fired!!! I don’t have time for any more screw-ups!

JESUS:
ÁMe Dios! I am to be mercilessly slaughtered in a pointless war! (sigh) Oh well, at least I’ll have job security…. And benefits!?! Oh, I think I would like a birch coffin. Thank you very much.

TERRANCE:
Heil, mein Führer! Hail supreme leader! Hail bag o crap! Oh look! Doggie go poo-poo and no poopy scoopy! Bad doggie! (reaches in pants) Fruit pie!

JON:
I would shake your hand but I have no desire to come in contact with the millions of bacteria you carry. My name-Jon Strickland. My title- technical administrator. I doubt this information will benefit you since I see no reason for any further interaction between us.

MORGAN:
I understand we have a potential client coming in 7 hours and 59 minutes. …Yes, we could do that (under breath) if we we’re retards. Of course DB. You're a genius. (coughing) Drop dead.

BROOK:
Dear, you’re going to hurt yourself with that. A Wise Apache Chief said to look at the lone twig. It is weak- easily broken. But look at an entire pack of twigs standing together. They are strong- unbreakable. No, No! Honey, what I meant is you should go get your friends across the street to help you push.

NOTE: DO NOT UPLOAD REEL. UPLOAD YOUR TAKE ON THE CHARACTER(S)
