Project Main Details
"Preparation" is a short film inspired by Heath Ledger's preparation to play the Joker.
Hollywood actor Kingsley Bell isolates himself in a hotel room for six weeks to work on the voice of a comic book villain he has been cast to play.
Our film is a low budget production, but it's a cool project that will be submitted to film festivals around the world. Thanks for taking a look!
WHAT WE NEED
We're looking for a voice actor to play a movie studio executive named Tom Crocker. He is the vice president of the studio.
In the scene, the studio phones Kingsley's hotel room to check on his progress, and Tom speaks to the actor.
ABOUT THE SCENE & THE DELIVERY
The studio's phonecall to Kingsley is under the guise of a courtesy call to offer anything the actor needs for his preparation.
In reality, the studio is calling to check on Kingsley's progress developing the character. The studio is concerned because Kingsley has only ever acted in romantic comedies - he's never played a villain.
When the actor starts talking about makeup ideas he is developing, Tom interjects to make it clear that the actor's role is to develop the character, not the makeup.
On the surface, Tom appears to be trying to help the actor - in reality, he wants to bully him into submission. There is a lot of money riding on the success of the movie, and Tom won't let an actor's arty ideas mess it up.

Kingsley, Tom here, that sounds great. Just so you know, you don’t have to take everything on, okay? We’ve got make-up artists for you. We’ve got bunches of them - the best in the business. So don’t even worry about that stuff. You just get that character down, okay buddy? Get that scary guy down. We’ll take care of the rest.
