Project Main Details

Portal A  
San Francisco-based production company Portal A is looking for voiceover talent to cast in an animated video being produced in support of California's Prop 39 in the November election.

The spot will be broadcast online only and will feature an assortment of characters involved in a scenario adapted from "Clue" (the classic board game turned movie in 1985). We're looking to cast the following 6 parts: a British butler, a pretty but dumb (read: bimbo) Maid, a Police Inspector who talks like Peter Falk from TV's "Columbo", a stuck-up Professor, an aging Temptress, and a Giant Rat (with a New York accent). A pretty motley crew to say the least!

Please see the attached script (it's only three pages, worry not) to understand better what we're looking for, and submit a short audio recording of one or two of the lines from the script

We will select which voice over talent we like the best (voice actors need not limit themselves to one role only, feel free to submit for various parts) and then bring selected talent in to our recording studio for a few hours to record the final audio. Rate is $150.00

Script Details


custom demo required 

At the bottom of a long driveway stands a foreboding iron
gate, shut closed.

Above it all sits a dark mansion illuminated by sporadic
lightning. Off to the side, behind a bush is a sign:
"California State Building: Sacramento"



A mix of the most stereotypical "Whodunnit" characters
imaginable: a BUTLER, a PROFESSOR, a TEMPTRESS with a long
cigarette, and a MAID. In the middle, is the INSPECTOR.

I've brought you all here tonight,
because one of you has stolen over
100 million dollars from
California... Using tax loopholes


Safe is open.

How terrible!

How dare you accuse me!


Surly you're not saying one of us
is a criminal.

Take a good look around you. I want
you to tell me if you've noticed
anyone acting abnormal or

Everyone's eyes flash back and forth.

Perhaps it was the Maid...

Me??? I...I saw the professor here
late last night.

I've got an alibi! I was with the

I've slept with everyone in this
room, but I would never steal from

Then who was it?

His eyes flash back and forth. He looks at the Butler who
smirks, the Maid who whimpers, the Rich Man who glares, then
the Temptress who smiles and raises an eyebrow.

Wait, who's that giant rat?


Off to the side at a piano smoking a cigarette sits a LARGE
RAT. He blows a puff of smoke.

Don't mind me, fellas. Me and my
pals decided to crash you're little
shindig, but we didn't do anything

Next to him are four silhouetted rats. A spotlight hits them.

They break into a jazz number.

[Song is called, "We didn't do anything wrong." Lyrics
introduce our four CEOs and cover basic talking points about
California loopholes]

Great song, but I'm pretty sure it
you did do something wrong.


The inspector is dead. His body is mangled.

Oh no! Not the inspector!

Who is the murderer? Who added
tax-loop holes to the tax code to
steal from California?

We see each person as they are mentioned.

The Maid? The Butler? The
Professor? The Temptress? Or
perhaps the slimy corporate rats.

All of the rats have blood on them.

Lightning crashes as we pull out from the exterior shot of
the mansion.
