So I've been pretty inactive because I've been busting my ass on a flash game with the amazingly talented Afro-Ninja. "Miss Osma's Puzzmosis" is coming closer to completion, and I'm now at the point where I'm confident to be casting for my female roles (didn't wanna waste anyone's time with a game that might not happen). There are no male openings, sorry all you voice actors out there. =(
So, here's the deal girls PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU AUDITION:
There are two characters, with a POSSIBILITY of three. The third would be an announcer, who will PROBABLY be the voice of Miss Osma, but if I like a dissimilar voice that you offer, I may make an exception and have an extra voice for an announcer.
Please send a demo with your audition so I know your range. If you don't have one, just say so, but gimme some variety in your auditions. I do ask for specific things in my descriptions, but please feel free to have fun, get into character, show me what YOU think, and what you've got. The lines I give are mearly guidelines. Go nuts. Who knows, they might end up in the game! Remember I am a voice actor too, so I understand what it means to have fun with a role. =)
AS A PERSONAL NOTE: I am very much into unique, strange voices. Certainly a voice that fits, but one that may have a lisp, an imperfection; some kind of natural "quirk." Maybe a little deeper than normal, a little boyish... who knows? Maybe you're not even a voice actress, but you have a neat voice. Try it! I am soo NOT looking for "that anime girl" kind of sound, I want something fresh and exciting. Search all aspects you know of the characters and explore.

Miss Osma is your avatar in the game. She's a young chemist, with a bit of naivity, but nothing but heart and soul. She's spunky, fresh, but she's focussed, and intelligent. She's fighting with all her heart to develop a super-cure for most diseases, and she won't simply back down to constant discouragements. She believes her mission is infinitely more than just a pipe-dream; it is a reality just around the corner, all she has to do is turn it. She is very expressive and experiences the extremes of human emotion.
Possible Audition Lines:
"Yes, this is it!!" (triumphant, brainstormy)
"I knew that wouldn't work..." (pensive, perhaps defeated? perhaps uplifted?)
"Maybe this!!" (excited, eager)
"Aghh! My formula!!" (distressed)
"You know, a few of these formulas give me some great ideas! Thanks a bunch!" (grateful, accomplished)
"Oh oh oh oh, I got it!" (silly, hurried, too excited to contain)

Janice is a manipulative seductress who will do anything to get to the top, which, yes, includes being a good chemist. She is arrogant, coldhearted, and she absolutely hates the idea of another woman chemist rising above her. She tries to mess up Osma's formulas, projecting sarcastically, using passive aggressive comments. There is no subtlety though, she makes it no mystery that she wants Miss Osma to fall flat on her face. She is, in the strictest sense, a total bitch. Perhaps not without reason, has she been crossed in the past? Untrusting of girls, ready for her revenge on all women.
Possible Audition Lines:
"Oh, isn't that a shame?" (sarcastic, biting)
"Ahh, maybe you should pay a little bit more attention, hmm?" (ditto)
"I'm on a completely different level!!" (superior, no uncertainty)
"Why do I keep seeing Sheith (pronounced sheeth) in her formulas?" (in desperation)
"Wouldn't want your breakthrough formula backfiring now would you?" (coniving, guilty and privvy to it)
"No!!" (ultimately distressed, as if her world is crumbling)
Please send all files to my e-mail, email@example.com, with the word "audition" somewhere in the subject line. DO THIS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. You may (IN ADDITION TO THE PRIOR) post your auditions in this thread if you wish to make them public, I don't mind.
This project is heavily in progress, so immediate turn-around for the final lines is MANDATORY. If you can't get finished lines within a 3-4 day period, I WILL replace you. I don't WANT to, but I will. Please don't waste my time and yours if you know you can't get me lines quickly.
I suppose I will have this audition open for a week unless I find an amazing voice earlier than that. So get those auditions in!
Thanks, and good luck to everyone!! :)
