Project Main Details

The Hero Complex 
"The Hero Complex" is the thesis work of a young film maker at the University of Miami. It is a highly ambitious film about a young, crippled comic-book-geek finding the truth about his family's "superhuman" reputation amidst America's first moon-landing attempt in 1969.

The film is in need of voice talent to play Apollo astronauts, Mission Controllers and news personnel. It is very important that each performer be comfortable with the bold a brash "dialect" used by NASA in the 1960's. Deep and strong voices. Conviction and intelligence must be discernible. Good articulation. Must be able to mimic the tone of actual NASA recordings (vaguely monotone, dauntless, fearless, heroic). Must be able to vocally express a wide range of emotion without being overly melodramatic.

In other words, you must be able to sound like you know what you are talking about, even if you haven't the furthest reaching idea. There is a good deal of aeronautical and space jargon in the script.
