Project Main Details

Joseph Story II  
This project is a more specified proposal of our other currently posted project "Joseph Story" (though we are still accepting auditions for that first project and its wider parameters).

This is an animated retelling of the story of Joseph from the Old Testament. It is for a non-profit organization called *******, and will be used online (their web site, and likely a YouTube posting as well).

The whole piece is narrated, and we're looking for a storyteller. For this project submission, we want to narrow the scope to middle-age to older male auditions, ones that can deliver a craggy/weathered kind of older voice, even with a southern tinge to it (though not heavy). Jeff Bridges or Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men) are inspirations. We're looking for a character voice with gravitas, not cartoony.

The VO consists of both Narration as well as characters' voices. We do not want "character" voice performances. It should always be the Narrator's voice and tenor, but when a character speaks the Narrator makes a slight shift to differentiate between his voice and the voice of the person/character. Bottom line, this is a storyteller telling a story, not creating multiple different performances.

Script Details

Sample script for auditions below.

(No need to read the "NARRATOR", "JOSEPH", etc. designations, just the lines. And the name "Potiphar" is pronounced "PAH-tih-fur.")
Joseph was his father’s favorite son. Everyone knew it. Joseph had a dream, and one day he told his brothers about it.

"We were out in the field, tying up bundles of wheat. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles gathered around and bowed down to it."

"Do you really think you are going to be king and rule over us?"

Now they hated Joseph more than ever.

"Look, here comes the hero of those dreams! Let’s kill him and throw him into a pit.”

They pulled off his fancy coat and threw him into a dry well.

"What will we gain if we kill our brother? Let's sell him instead.”

The others agreed, and they sold him for twenty pieces of silver.

Joseph was taken to Egypt and sold to a man named Potiphar, who was the king’s official. Soon Potiphar saw that the Lord made Joseph successful in everything he did. He put Joseph in charge of his house and his property, and he too began to prosper.
