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.
WHAT WE NEED
We are looking for the voice of the Hotel Manager he speaks to on the phone.
The scene is about 2 minutes long and the manager's dialogue is approx. 150 words.
ABOUT THE SCENE
When the main character Kingsley has made a prior arrangement with the Hotel manager that no hotel staff will disturb him during his stay.
When Kingsley wakes up to find that someone has come into his room and unpacked his chess board, he calls the Hotel Manager to complain. This phone call is the scene we need the voice for.
CHARACTER BRIEF - MARTIN SCHILLER (THE HOTEL MANAGER)
Martin Schiller is an experienced Hotel Manager in his mid 40's.
When Kingsley Bell calls him to say that someone has been in his room, Schiller's aim is to make Kingsley feel certain that his complaint will be dealt with swiftly and professionally. Kingsley is a high-profile guest, and Schiller wants to ensure that Kingsley will say good things about the hotel after his stay.
Schiller's action is to reassure.
As this film is in a documentary style, the performance should be understated and very honest. 2013-02-27 04:11:41 GMT 2013-03-03 03:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 13 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

KINGSLEY Martin! I’m here, sorry, they, uh,
they had me on hold.
SCHILLER No trouble at all. How can I help
you this morning?
KINGSLEY There’s, um... Look, someone has
been in my room. While I was sleeping. I woke up and some of my stuff had been... Unpacked.
SCHILLER Unpacked, I see, sir. Is anything
KINGSLEY No. I mean, I don’t think so.
SCHILLER I’m so sorry to hear about this,
Mr. Bell. We’ll check the security camera tapes right away-
KINGSLEY Look, you can call me Kingsley,
okay? It doesn’t look like anything is missing.
SCHILLER That’s a relief. Kingsley, we’ll
check the security camera tapes right away and we’ll be able to see if anyone came in or out of your room during the night.
KINGSLEY Well, Martin, uh, someone must have
come in, you know what I mean? The stuff didn’t unpack itself. I mean, I’m not trying to be funny or anything...
SCHILLER Of course. Of course. I’ll review
the tapes and get back to you straight away. Would you prefer to move to another room? I can offer you a larger suite on another floor...
KINGSLEY No. No, the room is fine. I mean...
Look, you spoke to your staff, right?
SCHILLER I did, I explained everything.
Meals must be left outside the door and no housekeeping, unless specifically request it. Of course, I will now double check that all the staff-
KINGSLEY No, no, it’s fine. As long as they
understand that I need to be left alone in here, it’s fine. You don’t have to make a big deal out of it.
SCHILLER I understand, Kingsley. Is there
anything else I can assist you with?
KINGSLEY No, it’s fine. Thanks, Martin. Talk
SCHILLER We’ll talk later.
