Job Description

I need a talented cartoon voice actor for my student animation.

The character is an energetic, grandfather robot. The design of this character can be found here http://www.jameslee03.blogspot.com/.

The dialogue will be narrating a back-story, and it will be strictly timed to a piano track. We have a rough mock-up of the timing that we can send through.

The film should have a wide distribution across the internet, so there’ll be plenty of exposure to the actor(s) involved. My previous student film (view by clicking here) recently won ‘Best Animation’ at the Queensland New Film Maker’s awards. Our latest film won an international competition in the ‘Aniboom Eyedoll’ competition.

The script is as follows:

GD: Let me tell you about a REAL hero my boy, His name is TARBOY – nothing like you’ve seen before! Once there were the rich fat cats – Grunt, Blunt and Can’t remember the last one - See, they ruled the world with their greed, their slaves worked day and night in the caves –

Boy: Doing what?

GD: Working! They clinked and they clanked and they pushed and they pulled and their limbs kept rusting and their joints were sore and their bodies were aching but they clinked and they clanked and they pushed and they pulled and they worked and they worked.

Boy: Gosh

GD: Until one day, the fat cats found a new, improved way of killing the ground and they chopped up the slaves, and just threw them away –

Boy: Um... where?

GD: Into the Tar Pit my boy, into the tar where they sank and they died, DEAD. But they Didn’t Die! Their memory chips survived and infused with the tar – all their memories lived on and the more that were banished, the more the tar grew – until he had enough of all the shit coming through…

Boy: You swore!

GD: Shuddup Billy! anyway – out of the tar came the boy made of tar, he called himself TARBOY and Boy, was he mad! All of his mind was just filled with the hate of the old machines that had DIED! But they didn’t die!

He was them! Millions of Robots and everyone of them wanting Revenge!

Boy: What happend then?

GD: A fantastic molastic elastical battle between the rich and the TARBOY… you wanna hear about a real hero Billy? It all began at the water cooler…
