Two video game characters needed 
ZDLTK152010377380X
This script is for a scene between two characters. The characters are of goblin descent, so I would prefer somewhat interesting voices. Acting is crucial here and has to be believable!!! This has to sound like natural dialog. Don't attempt to be over dramatic, but avoid sounding too flat as well.

The characters are named Sid and Luka. The setting is at a table inside a seedy bar, and they are making an exchange similar to a drug deal. Luka is the tougher, darker, snakier sounding character (perhaps raspier and slightly nastier...Luka is also 'the buyer'), while Sid is weaker (he is the seller), and is slightly intimidated by Luka and the surroundings.

Each character has between 180-215 words, and I will pay $225.00 per character. Feel free to take a shot at whichever character you feel best suited for (or even both if you are versatile enough). Do as much or as little of the script as you'd like. You may also give several different takes on the same few lines to give me more of an idea of possible approaches.

Look forward to working with you!

ANIMATION: Goblin Luka

Inside a PUB in GOLDSTAR CITY. Background noise of people talking etc.. CLOSE UP of a Goblins’ hand on a table, holding a mug of something. This is SID, a miner. His hands are filthy, and he’s fidgety, nervous, rubbing his knuckles as he holds the drink. Another Goblin’s hand appears at the other side of the table, and the sounds of somebody sitting down. This is LUKA. (Whenever the characters speak the voice appears in bubbles next to their hands – we don’t see their faces yet, as the whole time they are talking in the pub we stay in CLOSE UP of their hands.) A candle sits between them, illuminating the hands. People are moving around out of focus in the background.
LUKA Sid.
SID Oh, you’re here.
There’s silence for a few seconds, then:
SID Drink?
LUKA Let’s just get this over with. You got it with you?
SID Oh, uh, okay.
SID’s hands disappear, and he fidgets about his person for something.
SID I know it’s here somewhere.
LUKA’s fingers disappear briefly- the sound of a match striking is heard. Shortly the hands reappear with a cigarette.
SID I’m sorry, I know it’s here.
SID picks up a bag, dumps it onto the table. It knocks over his drink, which spills all over LUKA’s hands. The cigarette is distinguished
SID Oh, I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.
LUKA shakes his hands to dry them. Crushes the fag in to the table.
LUKA Sit down, and calm down. Just act normal.
SID roots around in his bag.
LUKA flicks fag into glass.
SID I know it’s in here somewhere. (sid 30)
SID opens the bag with both hands, and we see the tip of his nose and eyes as he peers into the bag.
SID Got it.
His face disappears as he relaxes, both hands still in the bag.
SID Should I give it to you here?
LUKA It’s as good as a place as any.
SID What if somebody sees?
LUKA makes a fist with one of his hands, unclenches it.
LUKA You think they’ll know what it is?
SID No, but –
LUKA Did you know what it was?
SID No, but –
LUKA Hand it over and we’ll both get out of here. (Luka 51))
SID takes one hand out of the bag and picks up what’s left of his drink, nervously, shaking the whole time.
SID So, uh, how does this work, now? I give you this and you get me a cart or something?
LUKA I’ll get you and your family in the back of a cart, yes. It’ll take you right out of here and through the gates of the Redeye Fortress.
SID closes the bag a bit more, pulls his other hand out empty.
SID *cough* So, what’s this thing worth, exactly?
LUKA clenches his fist again.
LUKA What?
SID gulps, and takes hold of the bag a bit tighter.
SID I asked what this thing was worth. It must be worth a lot for you to be risking this. (sid 62)
LUKA Don’t even think about it.
LUKA jabs a finger towards SID.
SID But, well, maybe it’s worth more to my family than just getting us out of here –
LUKA stands and reaches over, grabbing SID by the back of the neck. He pulls him closer and jams his head down on the table. PULL OUT to show their bodies slightly more.
LUKA It’s worth getting you into the fortress, and nothing more. Now hand it over, and go home and get your family ready to leave the city.
LUKA lets go of SID, who falls back to his seat. SID pulls the bag close to his chest.
SID I…I don’t know. I have to think about it.
LUKA slams his fist onto the table.
LUKA You have to think about it?
SID Look, maybe somebody will pay more for this. Maybe it’s worth more to somebody else.
LUKA I’m warning you.
SID does the bag up.
SID Maybe I could sell it to (whispers) The Redeyes myself.
LUKA Don’t be an idiot.
SID They’ll pay me money for this as well as letting me into the fortress, I’m sure.
LUKA (Gritting teeth) So what will you do? Turn up at the gate and ask to be let in?
SID I’ll, uh, be in touch, okay? I’ll let you know.
LUKA This is your last chance, Sid. Hand it over. (98)
SID No. I’m sorry.
SID’s hands grab the bag from the table and his body passes the table. We hear a door, and LUKA sighs, finishes his drink and stands to leave.
You see everyone round here trying to do what they can to make money, to get out of the city, to win the war. They’ve all got it wrong. In times like this, nobody wins. Best you can hope for is coming out alive the other end. Money, food, family… That’s all a bonus.
CUT TO:
Exterior of PUB. SID, clenching the bag to his chest leaves the pub and walks off quickly. SID runs down an alley A huge GOBLIN steps out of the shadows ahead of him, grinning. SID panics, tries to turn around but the goblin drags him in to the alley. LUKA appears at the end of the alleyway, disappears into the darkness for a second, and reappears with SID’s satchel.
LUKA VO Times like this, you do what you can to survive. (luka 65) 
Sample script:

LUKA Sid.
SID Oh, you’re here.
There’s silence for a few seconds, then:
SID Drink?
LUKA Let’s just get this over with. You got it with you?
SID Oh, uh, okay.
SID’s hands disappear, and he fidgets about his person for something.
SID I know it’s here somewhere.
LUKA’s fingers disappear briefly- the sound of a match striking is heard. Shortly the hands reappear with a cigarette.
SID I’m sorry, I know it’s here.
SID picks up a bag, dumps it onto the table. It knocks over his drink, which spills all over LUKA’s hands. The cigarette is distinguished
SID Oh, I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.
LUKA shakes his hands to dry them. Crushes the fag in to the table.
LUKA Sit down, and calm down. Just act normal.
SID roots around in his bag.
LUKA flicks fag into glass.
