I am so VERY excited about my first animated cartoon!!! I only have 30 plus seconds done, but I am ready to tackle this project head on. The biggest obstacle is voice talents. I am providing Charmy, Blu and Doctor Van Doogle’s voices… but I am in need of help now with the rest of the cast.
I have one guy recording some test vocals for Weaver. I should have his recordings this weekend. I am hoping that will take care of Weaver.
The big issue is Frenchy. She has to be extremely zany. Think Dot from the Animaniacs.
If anyone wants to try out for Frenchy or Weaver, send me a short, 1 minute audio file. Use you smart phone to record a few lines. I’ll include a section of the script in a second so you can chose a line or two from one of two scenes from “In and Out Burper”. Email the recording to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do get chosen, there is no pay for your work at this time. I hope to place it online for sale via Amazon or iTunes. I will figure out a royalty deal before the real recording begins.
Here are two scenes. The first scene features Weaver and Charmy…
(Charmy and Weaver – Bar Fly #2 midway through)
Do you have ANY manners whatsoever?
Burrrrp! Nope. None whatsoever. But what I do have is TERRIBLE indigestion. BURPPPP!!!!! Oo! Tastes like potted meat.
What the heck is wrong with you Charmy?!?
I think I’m sick…..
Yeah… You’re sick alright….
Did you eat something out of the norm today?
Nope, I ate out of the mess hall. BU-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-RPPPPPPP!!!!!!
Maybe you should see the camp doctor.
I rather just go see the nurse!
You need to be serious.
Okay… I seriously would rather see Nurse Heidi… BU-U-U-U-R-R-R-R-RPPPPP!
Gross. That one tasted like day old sardines.
Yes… yes you are right my dear, dear friend Weaver… It tastes more like week old clam chowder! BURRRPPPPPP!!!!!!!
Charmy, you need to see the doctor.
I don’t go to doctors. They always give you shots. The only shots I take come from this bar.
(Pounds chest like he has indigestion)
Doctors are evil blood thirsty vampires who suck the life right out of healthy patients just to fund their over the top lifestyle of golf, tropical cruises, fast cars and faster women. They pump you with pills you don’t need and bill your insurance company for thousands of dollars so they can pay off their mortgages and all those fast women. They are evil. Evil, evil evil!!!! I’ll never see a doctor!!!!! Never never never ever in a million years!!!!!!
Hello soldier. Wanna buy me a drink?
Make me an appointment.
(With Charmy, Blu and Frenchy)
Hello Blu! How are you doing this morning?
Just as miserable as I was yesterday.
Uh…. Are you alright Charmy?
I can’t stop burping. Weaver’s gonna take me to the camp doctor later this afternoon.
Doctor!!! Whoa!!!!!! Hold up there Charmy!!!!!! You don’t wanna see him!!!!!
I know!!!!!!! BURP!!!!!!!! I’m afraid he’s gonna give me a shot. I am scared of needles.
Me too. I drop like a sack of potatoes when I see a needle.
Look, I think I can help. My uncle used to practice medicine on the side.
Really? On the side? Did he have a license?
Oh course he did. He drove a school bus for a living.
Burp!!!!!! What? No, I mean… was he a real doctor. Did he have a medical degree?
Uh, oh course not. Why would he be playing doctor on the side if he was a REAL doctor.
Yeah, of course.
People said his practice was second to none. Or did they say his practice was seconds from one. It could be the latter because my uncle did live next door to a real doctor’s office… which came in handy on more than ONE occasion.
Burp!!!! Maybe I should just see the camp doctor.
Don’t be silly. The camp doctor is a quack.
Burp!!!!! Can I get an appointment with your doctor today?
Yeah, he’s in prison. The pen only allows visitors on Wednesdays.
Burp!!!! What’s he in prison for?
Practicing medicine without a license. I think someone died.
Look, I’ll just take my chances with the camp doctor, BURP!!!
No way! Look, I interned one summer for my Uncle’s practice. I am practically a nurse.
Okay, do you think you can cure me?
Well of course…
Burp!!!! Okay, how?
