Project Main Details

Comedy animation project 
Three overweight friends in their early thirties find themselves unable to comply with today's standards of compentence and beauty. They decide to get a hold of their lifes, lose weight and make an attempt to succeed in life. In their quest to achieve social perfection a tragic comic world of wonders and bizarre will reveal itself and our heroes will learn that things are far from perfect in the promised land of the succesfull and the fit.

Now back to reality:
This is a project I'm working on for quite some time and somehow combines most the areas I'm professionaly trained in (graphics, 3d modeling, editing and special fx) and also some of my hobbies (writing and composing). The whole concept, pilot script and characters are done and also rigged for animation but this is as far as I can get without a voice talent.

I am located in Bucharest Romania EU hence the english mistakes.

What I am looking for on voice 123:
A hopefully as long as possible collaboration with two english speaking voice actors:

One for the female and children voices and one for the male voices and a trailer.
We prefered to have just two voice over talents involved in the project that could perform in one side the female and children voices, and at the other side the male voices and the announcer.

While any acting ideeas are more than welcome the delivery I had in mind is more or less flat (except for the eastern european accented clairvoyant).

A recording facility at home would be great as I am located a billion miles away and my recording facilities are simply useless.

The final audio files should be delivered online via ftp or mail (mp3 in this case) at 44khz 16 bit stereo without any post processing. Multimple takes would also be fine giving me more editing and lip-syncinc choices.

Budget and payment:
This is a personal project (in lack of a better term) so i am funding it myself from the savings I don't have but still I am aware of the talent and work needed.
If possible I would rather pay through paypal as money orders from Romania can take quite a while.

This fall.

This project may grow into a real tv show or in the worst case scenario become a nice youtube addition to show our friends and grandkids.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read all this and please feel free to contact me.

All the best

Script Details

Script extract:

At the Mall, fade in from black. Ema, Xandra and Virgil are sitting at a table filled with all sorts of fast food packages.
- I should work out a little, I’m losing my breath even on the escalator.
- As you probably know, I don’t lose much thaught over my weight. My karma so far for me was to be like that. Mama Mandala taught me that the stars are not yet aligned for me to lose weight. Overweight as I am, right now I’m in perfect harmony with the universe.
- Nowadays, you got to work out, to eat soy and be environmental aware. Back then, when I was a star……...those were the days. I was thin and cool and wherever I went girls were lying at my feet.
- You were five and most of your fans still had dipers.
- Yeah…I was living more intensly then when I was five, I wish I could turn back time.

From an upper balcony of the mall, two kids eating ice cream.
- Hey Zappy, how are you? Eating to grow up?
- You see! People still recognize me. What do you want boys, an autograph?
- Yes Zappy we still love even you if you’re fat and old. Give us an autograph, we beg you…on this.
The kid throws the ice cream right on Virgil’s forehead. Both are laughing themselves to death.
- You wimps, I eat morons like you for breakfast!
- We can see that! Hehehehehehehehe.
- Look what I’ve become: from the kids Idol now I’m their laughing stock.
- People are so mean. Why do they have to treat us like that. If we’re fat aren’t we still human, don’t we still have a soul, if cut don’t we bleed.
- You guys are on an a diet, huh?
- I think we should go someplace else.
- Who knows maybe we won’t have to lose weight after all.
- Why?
- In exactly 23 minutes five planets of our solar system will align. Maybe the end of the world will come.
- That being said, we should order some more food, as we won’t lose much weight in 23 minutes. Xandra It seems the universe wants you fat ‘till the end. WAITER!

22 minutes and 50 seconds later. The clock hand approaches 12, tic tac……. and passes 12.
- That was it with the end of the world. It would have been sad that fried chicken at the mall to be my last meal.
- I still don’t get how can you eat something with a face. A living being with parents.
- I don’t eat their faces, neither their parents, although who knows for shure.
- Only if you knew in what horrible conditions these poor beings have to live. Do you know they have colored light bulbs simulating the cycles of day so they can eat over and over again thinking a whole day has passed.
- So as far as they know, they live a lot more than normal chickens and eat continuously, kind of a Matrix thing, actually it doesn’t sound that bad.
- You know what, this planet alingment is a sign for us to change, to lose some weight, to live healthy lives.

The chat window closes. Virgil clicks on the new window. A dark webcam image appears of a silhouette of a man siting on a big chair.

- What were you doing?
- I was working on this months balance sheet.
- You had this fitness club for 6 months and still didn’t make a dime out of it
- I’s not that simple daddy, I had to do promotions, marketing things, getting impulse – buyers and other stuff.
- What impulse you fat loser. All customers are running away when they see how fat you are.
- You know what? One of these days I’m going to lose all this weight and I’ll show you all what I’m about.
- Alright, alright, if this stupid endeavour of yours doesn’t work I’m cutting you off, for good. You’ll end up a trainer at your own fitness club or better yet a hygiene technician.
- It will work…..but.
- But….
- But….
- You need more money.
- Well….if you insist. I have a lot bills to pay and health equipment to invest in. We must first sow and then gather the fruits.
- Gather the fruits huh! I sowed and sowed in you and look what fruit I got. Sometimes I think you are literally eating all the money I’m sending you.
- Whatever, daddy.
- I will come over and see what you’re up to. And you better have all the paperwork in order.
- Great you can come tomorrow, because I have a lot of bills to pay…… know bussiness stuff
- No, I’m traveling abroad and I’ll be back in 6-7 weeks. I’ll send you money to last you until then but after that you’re off.
Ogre offline.
