Job Description

This is for an epic, historical first person shooter game for release on PC and XBox 360 in 3Q/4Q 2008.

This character is a ~40 yr old male. He's the player's in-game companion for some parts of the game and serves as an adviser, instructor, and sometimes goad.

He's firm and direct but has a sense of humor, sarcasm is a regular motivating tool. While he's obviously an experienced soldier (and tends to curse like one, please skip this project if profanity offends you), his manner is much too casual to be considered military. As way of description, some of the 'name' actors to which we've compared this role are: a sarcastic Mike Rowe, a saner Gary Busey, Denis Leary down a notch

This is a major supporting character and appears throughout the game.

Please quote for 1000 words, allowing for 2 additional pickup sessions at up to 250 words each and buyout licensing. Quote rates for additional pickup sessions as well (these guys like to change their minds!)

I'll accept auditions through January 15th and present the best to the development team at a benchmark meeting towards the end of January. Selected talent will be contacted in February after script tweaking and expected to deliver finished audio in one week. Pickups will take place through March, possibly April.

Talent not cast for this role will be considered for other minor characters. Only custom demos will be considered but watermarking is welcome.

Here are the lines for audition:

D: This is not a good place to be, so don’t around here. Find Smith. I know he’s here somewhere. Get him and get out of here. Headquarters is working on a way to get you out of camp, all I know is you’ll need to grab the opportunity when it arises. If it goes sideways, the newest arrivals are the first to get shot. You’re on your own, I can’t stand the smell…

D: (sarcastic) Well, you led the Germans straight here. Good job. We’re not going to survive the next wave of them unless we do something…. Follow me! I’ve got a little present at the top of that hill!

D: It’s called a grenade launcher. Start lobbing some shells down there and take out the attacking Germans. You might be able to pull your nuts from the fire yet.

D: (addresses large group of soldiers) Listen up, you ass-faced mud dogs! There’s only one way back home and it’s across that bridge. Now they may be dug in and they might have a few big guns, but they ain’t shit when it comes to my fellow army boys! Are you with me!?
