Job Description

About Us:

Head Trauma Studios is an animation production studio

Herbert the Doodlesaurus is an animated book CD-rom project that is slated to begin production in late February 2007. The role that you'd be playing is "Trina Powers". She's an African- American girl, about 8-10 years old, so you'd have to be able to play young. Here is a portion of the script so that you can get a feel for the some of the characters...

Thanks for your consideration.
I can't wait to hear from you!
Lawrence Christmas

Script:

PAGE 4 EXT. EDGE OF THE BEACH DAY

There is a little girl in the foreground and we can see a patch of very tall grass in the background that divides the beach from the jungle. The grass parts and we can see HERBERT'S bulbous eyes blinking cautiously.

NARRATOR/TEXT

When HERBERT parted the grass he saw a little girl sitting on his favorite sitting rock. She was crying softly and holding an old rag doll that was just about ripped in two.

HERBERT

Oh....oh..D.. Don’t cry, I can probably fix that for you... if you like that is. I mean I can... uh ya know... If ya want...Uh.. Hi...

Startled, the little girl turns toward the grass and clutches her doll tight for security.

TRINA POWERS

Who's that...who’s there?


PAGE 5: EXT. BEACH DAY

Herbert steps out of the grass and the little girl stares blankly for a beat and blinks. Slowly, she cracks a smile and then goes into hysterics!

NARRATOR/TEXT

Herbert stepped out from his hiding place and before he could tell the little girl his name she began to giggle. Before you knew it that giggle grew into a chuckle and then into a laugh!

You see, in all the excitement Herbert forgot to take off his silly party hat!

HERBERT

Huh... Something on my face..? mustard? I just had an onion dog at my... No?
HERBERT looks down at a puddle by his feet.

NARRATOR/TEXT

Herbert looked down and saw his reflection in a puddle and began to laugh himself!

HERBERT sees his reflection and cracks up.

PG 6: EXT. BEACH DAY

NARRATOR/TEXT

Now Doodlesaurs’ are very silly by nature. Once they start having fun they don’t like to stop.

Herbert began making faces, doing tricks and anything he could think of to keep the little girl laughing, and laugh they did, all that afternoon.

HERBERT making faces. Doing backflips etc. The little girl is laughing her head off. Tears rolling down cheeks ect.

PG 7: EXT. BEACH DAY

NARRATOR/TEXT

When their fit of giggles finally ended Herbert looked at the little girl and held out his paw to her.

HERBERT takes off his hat and put his hand out for TRINA to shake.

HERBERT

My name is Herbert, Herbert the Doodlesaurus...

TRINA POWERS

I’m Trina, Trina Powers.

HERBERT

Well Trina, this is no place for company. Let’s you and me go back to my house and then maybe you can tell me what all that crying was about.

NARRATOR

Trina agreed and Herbert took her hand and led her into the jungle.
