Job Description

"The Beautiful and The Ugly" is a 3-D animated film for my thesis at an art and design college. I'm still a little unsure as to of what kind of voice I want for the character. I've included two links to trailers for the film so you can develop your interpretation of the character's voice. I would appreciate a custom demo.


The main character, Nano, lives in a place called Asul. Asul is a rotting place filled with factories built by higher class cities. Every day after work Nano goes to the shore to watch the horizon glow. The glow is coming from the city of Paraiso (Paradise), the most prosperous city out of Lumino. Nano wishes to be part of that prosperity and beauty. One day, Nano hears an ad on the radio saying that a trip to Paraiso is on sale. Nano has just enough for the tickets. Driven by his dreams, he leaves Asul. Nano arrives in Paraiso only to find out that things aren't what he thought it would be in this so called 'paradise'.

"Paraiso" (pa-ra-e-so) is the Tagalog word for paradise.

Here are two trailers for the film:
Trailer #1
Trailer #2
These will help you understand the character and setting.

Also here's an image of main character Nano:

Here is a portion of the script:

NANO is walking while carrying a box.

(V.O.) NANO:

"When we see something unpleasant or unattractive, we often say that's ugly. Contrary to that, when something looks very pleasant we often say that its beautiful. We tend to admire it and try to follow its standard, because we also want to be beautiful or we want to be part of that beauty."

While Nano is walking he passes by the window. He stops for a moment and looks outside. He sees a glow on the horizon. Camera is slowly zooming in towards window.

Camera is flying through the clouds. The camera glides down, passing through the clouds. A city becomes visible.

(V.O.) NANO:
"On the other side of this decaying place lies a city of paradise..."

Scene changes to a shot of tall buildings with clean roads, bright blue skies, and green mountains on the background.

(V.O.) NANO:
"The city of Paraiso...The most prosperous city of all Lumino."


The total script is about 7 pages long. 1,500 + words including art directions and scene descriptions. Nano's lines have a word count of under 500.

Thank you,


Note from Should you choose to submit a custom demo, it is recommended that you watermark your work.
