Project Main Details

Bob Hope Animated Film James 
'Bob Hope' is a short animated film, in the vein of Rocko's Modern Life or Regular Show, that I'm making for my senior thesis. It's a dialogue-based piece, and a lot of the humor comes from the fact that it's animals talking in a conversational manner, so I'm looking for voice actors with a good sense of comedic timing and inflection.

Upon graduation, I plan to shop the film around as a pilot for a potential television series.

The film is sort of an absurdist, sitcom-y story about four animals who get way too into 'Bob Hope', which is one of those games where you can't touch the floor. It's sort of like that game where 'the floor is lava', but instead, if you touch the floor, you're Bob Hope, and you lose. There's Action! Thrills! Giant Chickens! Vivid, Hunger-induced Hallucinations! Pretty much everything you'd want in a short film.

I'm looking for a voice for James, the mild mannered, non-confrontational sloth. See the animatic for a general idea of the kind of performance I'm looking for.

A healthy familiarity with current animated television shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Archer, Metalocalypse, or any other shows in the Adult Swim lineup would be a big plus. Voice reels are greatly preferred.

A rough version of the current film can be found here:
