Alrighty then! This here is Maddie and Darren from the first “Candy House” post here.
AND NOW IS WHEN I WILL BE ACCEPTING VOICE AUDITIONS AS STATED PREVIOUSLY.
These are the only two voices I will need for this teaser trailer animatic, and although I don’t have a script for you yet, this is the opportunity for the first run through of auditions of whatever demo audios you have but can at least use these as reference if you want to try and bring forth what these characters are like from the visuals.
So here are some brief descriptions:
Madelynn “Maddie” is the more level-headed of the two, but is likely to get riled up regardless from whatever mischief her husband seems to get into. She takes things more seriously when it comes to her work, but definitely has a sense of fun and humor as well. Enjoys videogames in any downtime she can manage.
Darren on the other hand, is definitely a lot more wild in personality with snark and sass in bounds. Also famed for his borderline magical ability to counteract actual magic through his sheer stubbornness. Being a tenacious butthole has somehow worked to his advantage. But really he can be sweet in his ways and cares about what he does a lot, and obviously his wife.
And as a pair, they have their difference and bicker often, but their love is strong and always like to challenge the other. Squabbling is honestly just what they do. They first met back in college in the debate club and became a couple after getting into a vigorous argument that worked it’s way outside the club until the finally broke it off into an angry makeout session and made up their differences. haha
The two ended up doing professional babysitting since it was something they both found a passion for with children, but also because they couldn’t have children of their own. They have a tendency as well, to have a reputation with magical/fairytale type families and coming to the Candy House has not been their first. Maddie was born into a magical family without having powers for herself and Darren entered into their world through her. Only more adventures seem to await the young couple through the frightening world of babysitting (oh and magic too…)
Now for the audio files. I mentioned it in a post before with how I will receive them so I’ll say it again here:
“You could post it on your own blog, or any other site that works best for that and send me a link, or if it comes to it, you can contact me personally to send over e-mail if necessary.”
So that’s what I have for now.
I WILL BE TAKING AUDITION SUBMISSIONS FROM NOW, THURSDAY, DEC. 12TH, UNTIL THURSDAY, DEC. 19TH 12AM PACIFIC TIME.
Now good luck and show me what you got! 8D I’m excited to see the results from everyone~
SO LISTEN UP ANYBODY INTERESTED IN VOICE ACTING FOR A SMALL PROJECT!
This is a story idea on a modern take for Hansel & Gretel, but it’s really not what you would expect. In fact, these two aren’t even the Hansel & Gretel in this story. They are Maddie and Darren, a young married couple that do nanny work for a living and their next stop here is a crazy witch’s house made of candy where 3 of her children reside, Hansel, Easton, and the youngest Gretel. There will be many ridiculous shenanigans regarding magic and the most terrifying of all: babysitting.
It’ll be fun haha.
But yeah my point here is:
I’m going to be doing a storyboard/animatic for a possible trailer with it for my portfolio and I think it might be really great to have some actual audio involved for once and have voices for these two to show their dynamic. And also just want to show a variation of what I can do for the portfolio and I might go with this choice for an animatic if I pic one to show in a demo reel.
Although I haven’t written the script just yet, I guess this is just a heads up since I plan on doing that as soon as I can for this month.
I’ll bring this back around with any updates on the matter but just so you guys can all take that into account and see if it might be something for you to try out! :) Would be appreciated~
And when they aren’t bickering the two can also be seen being very playful and sweet to each other. Even though it may not seem like it, Darren is actually very sincere with Maddie. They have a lot of differences honestly, but they are able to talk their issues out seriously and accept them despite not always agreeing and the key to their love is listening.
