Job Description

This project was posted last week. Our client would like to hear more reads on all the characters posted again. All are welcome to re-submit, but we would prefer new reads and multiple takes would be appreciated.

About Us:

Blissium Motion Graphics is a full service motion design studio. We offer a wide variety of services, and we have the capability to meet and project needs, creatively and technologically.

We have 26 web videos that we are producing. Sample lines and character descriptions have been included here but the full script is in pdf. We are working on a tight deadline so we need audition reads as soon as possible. One person can read more than one character if they are capable. This project is for web-only, non-broadcast.

A NOTE ON THE VOICES: Some are almost normal speaking voices. Some are over the top, but mostly, the voices are just quirky enough to be engaging and funny. The voices never get in the way of the character or the script. Lastly, if you didn’t see the cartoon, if you could only hear the voices, you would still be able to follow the story. Because the voices are the characters. The very sound of the voice should make us laugh.

The campaign as a whole is designed to look like a very low-budget affair. The pretzels are real, not animated. They move a little stiffly. We’ve found that this sort of authenticity resonates very well with our target audience of 13-17 year olds (mostly male). Giving them the expected ceases to entertain and engage them. On the contrary, to do the expected, even with voice characterizations, is to sell to them.

That said, the characters should be broad and a little over the top to start with. Use pop culture as a guide and go from there.

CINNAMON & SUGAR:

Characters: Cinnamon & Sugar are rich girls from Beverly Hills. They believe you should only eat pretzels with cinnamon and sugar. They got into some legal trouble and were forced to take a job because their parents were going to kick them out.

Voices: The characters are vaguely based on Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie, but they sound smarter than that. Valley Girl is good, but it should not be dumb blonde or ditzy.

WEB VIDEO XVII: Web Video XVII is a press conference at which Cinnamon & Sugar talk about the upcoming bout between them and the DoubleDecker Brothers. Open on Cinnamon & Sugar against the press conference background:

REPORTER: The DoubleDecker Brothers say girls can’t fight.

CINNAMON: Whatever.

SUGAR: Why are boys so stupid?

CINNAMON: That Wasabi guy is kind of smart.

SUGAR: Yeah. I mean, seriously, all these boys are fighting about toppings.

REPORTER: Who’s a bigger threat? El Salsador or the Bavarian?

CINNAMON: Salsa’s totally yummy.

SUGAR: Yeah but ew, the Bavarian? He’s like all old and stuff.

CINNAMON: I don’t want to fight an old person. That’s not hot.

REPORTER: What are you going to do after the competition is over?

SUGAR: Beats me.

CINNAMON: Probably something boring.

SUGAR: I hate being bored.

CINNAMON: Maybe start a league where we get to beat up stupid potato chips.

SUGAR: And cheese curls.

CINNAMON: Cheese curls are so dumb.
