Unemployed characters

help

So, we’re already cooking a new little project for the new year. We want to create a job center for unemployed animated characters, but this project needs your voice. Literally.

We would like to invite you to get involved by becoming an animated character of your own device, all we need is your voice and your imagination.

All you need to do is:

1. Asume the personality of an animated character. Give yourself a name and a personality. Think what kind of character are you, what are your strengths and weaknesses… What’s your dream role?

2. Record a voice memo on your phone with your advert looking for work.

3. Email it to us! with your name and address.

4. You’ll receive our eternal gratitude and an IOU for a hug. We’ll post the best ones here and if your clip gets chosen to be animated we will send you a HD version with a little ‘thank you’ gesture for your time.
