Project Main Details

Brain Divided  
The project "Brain Divided" is an animated short film that will be created by me and two of my peers will be creating. We are all currently students at Ringling College of Art and Design and this will be our senior thesis. We need voice talent that will help convey the range of emotions for each character to make them believable and likeable.


Jon is an ordinary man on a blind date. There’s nothing particularly special about him. Our protagonists are in fact the Right and Left sided brain cells and Jon is more of the human shell that is depicting each of the brain cells perspectives. The Right brain cell is usually inactive during most affairs but as soon as he realizes the blind date is extremely attractive, he decides to take part in Jon’s “thought process”. As a result, a power struggle begins between the two brain cells over which approach is best. Jon’s Left sided version is calm, reserved, and safe. He’s more of a gentleman and intellectual type that goes for everything conventional, practical and logical. Jon’s Right sided version is the exact opposite. He is direct, playful and childish. He doesn’t believe in limits and enjoys taking risks without thinking about the consequences. He relates to the “Id” in all of us. Scarlet is the blind date. She is characterized as modern and sweet, very much a girl next door type of woman. Scarlet is seemingly an ordinary girl, until the ending reveals her to be a bit extreme in her quest for love.
We need voices for all of our characters. For the brain cells we were thinking something similar to the minions from despicable me. Basically gibberish, but based on the emotion or root word of something within context of the situation. We want it to still have a tone and feeling even if it isn’t any specific language.
Jon is a young man, in his mid 20s. He’s obviously going to be two different versions of himself, so we’re looking for the same voice with two different personalities. We are open to creative interpretations so feel free to go about it anyway you’d like.
Scarlet is the girl next door type. She knows she’s attractive but doesn’t flaunt it. Her voice should be sweet and charming without giving anything saying she is out of the ordinary. The end line is crucial though that we hear an extreme change.

This will hopefully give you a basic idea of what's happening and any liberties you think might help make the acting stronger. Feel free to improvise any lines that you feel might be better choices.
Scarlet: Hi…Jon? Sorry I’m late

Jon: Hello… And you must be Scarlett (shakes her hand mechanically and longer than usual)

Scarlett: Yup... It’s nice to meet you too (puzzled by the odd handshake)

Jon: (Changes into a suave version of himself) The pleasures all mine… (kisses excessively up the arm)

Scarlett: Uh…..

Jon: (Changes back) Heh….Please take a seat

Scarlett: Thanks (slightly puzzled by his behavior)

Jon: Ahem…I hope you’re hungry, because I’ve already ordered some appetizers

Scarlett: Sounds great! They don’t have any shellfish? My face gets all puffy and red if I even have a small bite…

Jon: (Changes to suave version) Oh, not to worry. I ordered linguini alfredo, should be shellfish free and low on carbs so we won’t get fat.

Scarlet: Excuse me!?!?

Jon: Not that you need to worry about that, You’re gorgeous….From those luscious lips to your sweet assSSS…(Suddenly changes back) CENT! Your sweet accent. Are you from France or something?

Scarlett: Uh…no, Wisconsin actually, you know where they make the cheese

Jon: Ahhhh Ok….Cheese makes me gasy….
(Suave Jon): Hey look, dinner’s here! You got to TRY this! (Throws food up into air)

Scarlett: Whoa

Jon: I hope you’re excited for the main course, I know I am.
Jon: (Changes back) Dinner is served. (Spots shellfish on new dish) AH! Looks like you’re done, let me clear that for you!
Jon begins to play jazz flute

Scarlett: Oh my god! Are you ok??!!?

Jon: Oh I’m fine, fine fine. Hey my songs’ playing!

Scarlett: Giggles/laughs

Jon: (change to suave) Ha HA! TIME FOR SOME REAL DANCING!
Jon: Well…Now that we’re alone… (runs hand up her dress)

Scarlett: (disgusted scoff) Whats WRONG with YOU!?!?! (Slaps him and walks off)
(Mumbles) Men are all the same…so unbelievable…

Jon: (Chases after her) Wait Scarlet! Wait!

Scarlet: WHAT DO YOU WANT?!?

Jon: Scarlet, I…I’m Sorry, I was an idiot back there

Scarlet: Yeh you were! What was all that?!?

Jon: Look…I know I may seem crazy but that wasn’t me back there. My brain was going back and forth, trying to impress…you. (Takes breath) Point is, I messed up but I’d like to show you who the real me.
Scarlet still angry

Jon: Hey, I’m a guy, since when have we EVER got it right on the first try?

Scarlet: (smiles) Well, you got a point…
They both kiss

Jon: So about that second date….

Scarlet: Forget dating…LET’S START A FAMILY!!
