HELP WANTED: Seeking voice actors for Batman series
The Batman fan series, directed by John Murray and his Spanish filmmaking partners is going into production shortly and we are seeking voice actors to portay the roles of certain characters.
The series will feature a number of DC's greatest comic book characters, involving other characters that do not appear in the Batman universe such as the mysterious Woman in Pink and the pre-Flash Barry Allen.
The series will run for a span of 16 episodes, as the writer of the series it is my job to find people who can voice act the roles.
John has much on his plate, so he has no time, as a Spanish filmmaker he is working heavily on producing the series with his partners and I have decided to take the time to recruit certain people into the series.
This is a FAN SERIES primarily, so the voice acting will not be paid for. I am asking for anyone, whether you have experience or not, to have a go at this. As the writer, I am not receiving any payment for the work I am putting in as I don't work that way, this is a hobby of mine, not a line of work.
The characters you can voice act for will be listed below this segment, all characters are DC copyrighted, some are my own personal characters that I placed within the series.
These are the characters: (* = original character, M = Male, F = Female)
Bruce Wayne/Batman (M)
Alfred Pennyworth (M)
Edward Nygma/The Riddler (M)
James "Jim" Gordon (M)
*Commissioner Walker (M)
*Callie (Calibration software artifical intelligence program) (F)
Barb Gordon (The original Batgirl/Oracle) (F)
Thomas Elliot (M)
Doctor Jonathan Crane (M)
Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin (M)
Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn (F)
Officer Tim Drake (Nightwing) (M)
Vicki Vale (F)
Barry Allen (M)
Woman in Pink (F)
The Joker (M)
Other characters will appear, and we shall also require "extras" to fill the roles of unnamed/named characters that are side-characters in the story.
Anyone wanting to submit their voice test, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once approved, you shall receive the Pilot episode script in its entirety. Whoever is not picked for the main roles, will receive side roles as minor characters.
Once again, this is a fan series, which will air on Youtube in 2013. If you like Batman, and want to be a character in this show, then attempt to get into character by speaking the lines below:
JOKER: When all is said and done I will be standing over Gotham as the colourful knight with the big smile and all shall bow to me. I'm the real hero, not Bats, he's just - bonkers! Like me in a way, I'm like him, he's like me, you get my point, right Jim?
BATMAN: I know it's hard, but try to stay calm. I'm going to get us both out of this. You need to start trusting me, Gordon, I'm not what everybody thinks I am.
GORDON: Joker is still out there, if we don't move now he'll tear the entire city apart. We need to stop him - we need Batman.
HARLEEN: Do you think he was telling the truth about Batman? Joker might be a nutcase but if he's right then Batman is more dangerous than we thought.
WALKER: I don't care if he's the incredible hulk, we find the son of a bitch, unmask him and reveal to the entire city that he's no more than a man. Batman is reponsible for the deaths of many innocent civilians, he has to pay for what he has done.
RIDDLER: Batman oh Batman, where art though, you sought to save the girl but now you're the damsel. Should have seen that one coming Dark Knight, but you're a fool no less. Now you both die and it'll be a mess!
DRAKE: Whoever the Batman is, is trying to do something that we can't. He's trying to stop Joker, isn't that what we're doing? We need him now more than ever.
VICKI VALE: After the riots that struck Gotham last night, police commissioner Walker has issued a public statement that offers $100,000 to whoever captures the Batman. Sources say the Batman is in hiding, after last night's attacks caused panic throughout the city.
CRANE: Subject is unstable, showing increased signs of mental instability after hallucinating a demonic figure emerging from shadow. Pupils dilated, schizophrenic outbursts and neural degeneration among increasing signs of madness. My prognosis: Mentally deranged.
ALFRED: Sir, I must ask why you persist on going on blind dates. The girls you end up bringing home are quite - *clears throat* - noisy. I often hear strange noises coming from your bedroom. But if you must then who am I to judge? I only had one love in this world, you clearly have many.
CALLIE: I have tracked down the Joker to an abandoned warehouse in the Narrows. Armed guards patrol the perimeter, gaining access from the front is unwise, I suggest seeking an alternative means of entry, perhaps from the sky.
ORACLE/BARB: It's been hard on him for the past few weeks, with everything that's happened I'm surprised he hasn't lost his mind. I'm worried about him, I think he's going to do something stupid, Bruce.
PENGUIN: I don't care if the bastard is in the hotel, I want his head on a bloody pike so I can mount in on my wall. No one comes into my hotel and threatens me, understand? Find him, kill him, and bring me his head!
ELLIOT: I want to make it perfectly clear, Bruce, I am by no means pretending to be you. I am you. You see, over the months I have been gathering certain people, creating a mould if you will. Now comes the time when Bruce Wayne unveils his darkest secret.
BARRY ALLEN: Bruce, good to see you. Heard a lot about those fancy ear pieces, a phone, without a phone, nice one. Listen, I've been thinking, maybe your company can help me out with some of my projects, I think I might have found a way to break the sound barrier. It's good, I'd like to demonstrate it some time.
WOMAN IN PINK: Who I am is none of your concern, say I told you, would it make things any easier? I think not. Bruce, your actions will lead to your death, I may have saved you here tonight but I am not going to help you again. You need to stop, before it's too late.
I wish you all the best of luck with your submissions and hope many are interested in the roles we have to offer.
