Project Main Details

Grave Dawn VO audition 
Grave Dawn is a short film based on a true story about a young German soldier's journey at the end of WWII. We are auditioning actors to dub over the character of Major Maehler. Major Maehler (35-45) appears in three pivotal scenes in the film. We are looking for native German speakers who are good actors. The character of Maehler is intense, rigid, and precise. He wears his years of service on his face. He carries hatred in his heart, especially towards the enemy. Sympathy and compassion have long since left his conscience and many have died by his hand. War has made him bitter. Secretly, he is tormented by the frustration of knowing his country is crumbling. His pride outweighing rationale, he is unable to admit defeat, and is repulsed by any German that does. Stubborn and frustrated, his patience shortens every day that the Russian Army advances into Germany. There is an attached script and the corresponding quicktime mov of the scene from the film to view. If you can record an mp3 of the script and email it to me, that would be ideal. Thank you for your time.

Script Details

*native German speakers who are good actors

*Please check attached video at: 
Sample script provided for auditions:

1- Nehmen sie sich ein paar Männer, um
die Straße zu verteidigen.
(Noticing Erwin)
Ach Buchholz. Nehmen Sie Ihre
Ausrüstung und folgen Sie Henlein.

Nein, Herr Major.

2- Was haben sie da gesagt?

Der Krieg ist verloren, Herr Major.
Und ich weigere mich

3- Tatsächlich?

Wofür verrecken wir hier denn noch?
Was bringt's denn noch weiter zu
kämpfen, nach sechs Jahren Krieg,
Tod und Zerstörung?
Dieser Krieg und die Dinge die wir
gemacht haben… jeder Mord, der hier *
begangen wird, ist ein Verbrechen
gegen die Menschheit! So kann es
nicht weiter…

4- Es reicht! Ich habe ihre Sympathie
für den Feind bis jetzt durchgehen
lassen. Aber das hier, das kann ich
nicht tolerieren.

Ich sterbe lieber, als für diesen
Dreck weiterzukämpfen.

5- Wenn dem so ist, dann können sie
heute Nacht ihr Grab schaufeln.
Und morgen früh werden sie
erschossen. Das ist ein Befehl.
