ZOOM SUIT CASTING

SCRIPT PARTS PLUS TREATMENT

UPDATE

Sorry for the delay, but the response was far greater than expected. Over 400 people responded. We're down top 200 already, but even at that we simply can not accommodate two hundred people in our 2200 sq foot office.

We ask that anyone that can post an audition via mp3 or wav file and send a link to the audition please do so. This will save you from coming in and waiting.

Once we finish with the group posting their auditions online we will make arrangements for the others to come in on an “as needed basis”.

Sorry for the change, but we felt it was better to switch gears than have folks sitting on top of each other for hours.

Please note, we can not use talent with accents (excepting the farmer and wife who should . . .well sound like a farmer and his wife)

Parents must accompany their children into our office. No dropping off or waiting in the car. If we don't have a parent or guradian present to sign a release and observe we will not allow a reading. Parents are welcome / encouraged to accompany their child into the studio.

Detailed character sides have been posted below.

READ THESE COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE SCROLLING.

Casting will be next week. You will receive an e-mail this Friday with a detailed schedule. The casting will be in our Boca Raton office.
The address is under DIRECTIONS.

Please Note

1)

For many of you this is the first time you responded to an animated film. Keep in mind, you don't have to "look" like the character, just sound like him/her. The character sketches are for informational purposes. For example, for Dr. Katerina Tesla - from the picture you can clearly see she's gorgeous and brilliant. From her body language, she knows it.
Now YOU act it.

If you watch the short, don't get locked in to the current voices. If you have a better interpretation, let's hear it. (Although we LOVE Simon Bane's Voice, but that actor isn't availible)

2)

Check out Shreck or Toy Story. Note the manner in which the lines are delivered. Strong and clear, with a lot of emotion relative to the scene. Your "Animated Self" will be alive and we need your voice to match. We need you to stay in front of the mic, but we also need passion. You may feel like you're over acting - -that's ok.

3)

Give yourself an advantage by knowing the project. Watch the Zoom Suit short at http://www.superverse.com

(if we refer to the short and you don't know what we're talking about, there is no way we can give you the role. Please don't tell us about broken computers or internet being down. Go where you need to go to spend 10 minutes to watch the short at least once. Read the comments at IMDB.com here http://pro.imdb.com/title/tt0455883/usercomments

4)

Know what role you would like. Please come in prepared with printed casting sides and familiarity with the role of your choice.

Extra Opportunity!

While casting the 10 main characters, many of you will be asked to read for some of the smaller roles. If we like the way you sound we'll likely record you on the spot. These roles are between 2 and 20 lines. If you accept any of these small roles you won't be paid, but you will be listed in the credits, and you will not have to come back unless you also earn one of the larger roles.

The Zoom Suit short has been entered into over 200 festivals. Notice dates have arrived for 24 fests so far and we have been accepted to 20! At this rate we'll be featured in over 100 festivals! We have also won numerous awards including two best shorts.
