Project Main Details

Love Bomb Book 
Independent production company looking for an experienced voice actor to perform and produce the audiobook version of a novella we own, Love Bomb & The Pink Platoon, about a military experiment that goes horribly wrong and turns an entire platoon gay. The Book is written in the style of Orwell or Terry Southern, and follows one main character, a 60 year-old disgraced general. He's assigned to a small platoon (8 characters) and on their journey, they encounter 8-10 other significant characters, including 4-5 middle eastern men- villagers, fixers, generals. So the assignment is large and somewhat complex. Script sample below. We listen to every audition script that's recorded, so your time won't be wasted. Voice123 makes it impossible to properly layout the "short script" so apologies in advance for the wall of text. Hopefully they'll fix that at some point, or allow attachments. Thanks in advance for submitting for the gig.

Script Details

“ is this your punishment?” asked Richards.

“ This is my last best chance to serve,” replied Newman, and he meant it.

Stryker broke the silence. “I didn’t sign up to be slapped around by some washed up Patton,” he snarled.

“Until this is over,” snapped Richards, “or until that star comes off his shoulder, you will follow...” Richards read the name from just above Newman’s breast pocket. “...General Ginger, and so will the rest of us.”

As uncomfortable as Newman was with someone else forcing sub- ordination upon the men, he gathered quickly that his only move was to keep quiet, to appear above the fray. He recalled a lesson he had learned early in the fatal chaos of the jungle: the more you have to tell people you’re in charge, the less you’re in charge. So he kept his mouth shut, gripped his hands behind his back, and began.

“Now, boys, if we’re going in there, we’re going in together, as a unit. We may be only seven-strong, but we’re...” he paused and looked at the assembled men. How does one inspire the lame, he thought? How does one flatter the talentless? How does one spin? In the army, Newman remembered, you don’t.

“Well, we’re going in there because we have to,” said Newman, with a new solemnity. “We’re soldiers, and we have an order to follow. Could be marching to certain, immediate death...”

Over the last thirty years he had given one battle speech, to a group of engineers who were desperately trying to create a mechanism to improve the septic system on base. He had inspired the engineers by threatening that, if they failed, the base would be overrun with shit. It wasn’t graceful, but it worked.
