Project Main Details

This is a VO for a videogame. Recording studio is in Los Angeles. We might be able to bring talent in from outside of the area but looking for local talent first.
Male. Islander. Prefer early 30's but will consider others. Warm, relaxed, attentive and generally happy.
Has a bit of a zen spiritual side that comes through from time to time.
He is fiercely protective of friends and when enraged can be a frightening sight.
He can be a soft teddy bear but also exert himself when his cubs are in trouble.
The only real constraint for him is that he is an islander with some sort of an 'islander accent'. Whatever the accent and background, we’ll write into the biography/script. We really just want to find the best actor we can get and will alter the script to fit the actors background.
The actual script is not being released. Please read the role of 'Joshua' and if you can read with a partner for the audition, we would like to hear that too.
Please submit as soon as possible.
Date(s) is TBD (probably this month, April). Rate is AFTRA scale (full 4 hour day(s)).
Sides are attached.

Script Details

Warm, relaxed, attentive and generally happy.
Has a bit of a zen spiritual side that comes through from time to time.
He is fiercely protective of friends and when enraged can be a frightening sight.
He can be a soft teddy bear but also exert himself when his cubs are in trouble. 
JOSHUA is standing at an elaborate gas grill built into the deck
of the yacht. He is dressed in some kind of uniform: long
sleeved pink button up, khaki pants, white shoes. His tribal
tattoos can be seen peeking out from his crisply pressed collar
and sleeve cuffs.
On the grill is an array of beautiful seafood, vegetables, and
steaks. He is deftly adjusting heat, spicing, basting, and
turning the food. He is humming to himself.
A woman rounds the corner from the back deck. She is dressed in
a wet suit and has clearly just emerged from the water. She
drops some of her gear and begins to squeeze water from her
hair. This is BECCA.

Hey Josh! Whatever you’re cooking smells amazing.

JOSHUA looks up and smiles. He takes a crab leg from the grill
and pulls off a piece of particularly succulent looking meat.

Try this.

BECCA looks around as if to make sure no one is looking. She
takes the crab meat and throws it in her mouth. She closes her
eyes and makes a sound that clearly indicates what she is eating
is delicious.

Oh my god, that’s incredible.
You’re gifted, Joshua. I hope they pay you what you’re worth.

It’s a job. It pays.
How’s the reef look this morning?

BECCA rolls her eyes.

It’s a good spot. There’s a white tip resting in one of the

Only the best for our Paradise Cruises guests.
I hope they’re paying you what you’re worth.

It’s a job!
It pays.

BECCA begins stripping off her wet suit. JOSHUA reaches over
and hands her a big fluffy towel with a monogramed ‘PC.’ She
hesitates and he nods.

Don’t worry, they won’t know the difference.

BECCA smiles, takes the luxurious towel and breathes it in, then
dries off.

(sighing, looking at the monogram)
If only this was a “B.” I could live like this.

Not me. I just want a small house… with a big kitchen.
A humble little place.

Well, I never thought my PHD in marine biology would land me on
a yacht, giving tours to the rich and famous.

BECCA looks at her waterproof watch, furrowing her eyebrows.

Honestly, I shouldn’t complain. I’m being paid to do what I

You love being a dive guide?

BECCA sits down, looking out over the almost unnaturally blue

I love being beneath the waves.
But I hate the people I have to bring along with me!

The spirits guide us to where we’re meant to be… eventually.
You’ll find your way.

I’m still waiting for those winning lotto numbers. But I’m not
holding my breath.

(shakes his head)
There’s always a way. You just need to accept where you are and
focus on a goal.

Don’t act like you want to be here, Josh.

It’s a means to an end.
I save every penny I earn. Whenever some annoying, fat, rich
American demands another plate of my food, I imagine my future.
I won’t always be here, but I might as well enjoy it while I am.

BECCA looks away wistfully, clearly lost in thought.

I don’t know how you do it.
You’re so positive.

JOSHUA lowers the heat on the grill burners and closes up the
lids. He sits down across from BECCA, smiling at her like a

You want to know how I do it?
It’s easy.

JOSHUA closes his eyes and begins to murmur.

I’m standing on my porch. It’s summer time.
The breeze is warm; I can smell a good bisque simmering in the
A big kitchen.
The sun is setting… I can see my kids playing on the beach.
I call out to them to come in for dinner.
My beautiful wife comes out of the house; she rests her hand on
my shoulder, waving to the kids with her other.

The sound of laughter and talking emerges from the back deck.
JOSHUA opens his eyes and stands quickly, opening the grill and
looking suddenly very busy. BECCA is up just as fast, gathering
her gear.
A variety of wet suited guests come around the corner, talking
excitedly about lunch. BECCA looks at JOSHUA, a small smile on
her face.

Thanks, Josh.

JOSHUA taps his temple and smiles.

Remember, it’s all up here, just waiting to happen.
