The Cure for Animator Laziness!
Amateur animators, ever find yourself in that position where you've started an ambitious project but you've become bored with it? This is more the rule than the exception for me, I know that much. I love the idea of making another movie as long as my first submissions, but these days it hasn't been as easy because I'm a little impatient.
Me and my buddy Matt came up with a cure, and it's simple. Animate with other people. He wrote an article in his blog explaining it and it's advantages. Matt is the same as me wherein we start a bunch of shit and never finish it, many times it's probably because we're probably off somewhere getting fucked up at the same party. WELL, READ IT. TRY IT.This may only work if you have a laptop though :P
Make sure if you compliment the article to leave it on his page, or in the forum thread he made for it.
Xenophobe 2nd Audition
I need more voices for my new project, Xenophobe, which is close to completion and even though it's only half of the project I originally came up with (which was too big for me at 15 minutes, the rest will come later and ALL the pre-production is done, it will not be ditched). I'm adding a scene because the first story needs closure, I refuse to slap a "Part 1" or "Episode 1" on this submission when it's done. So humor me and audition for these 2 parts!
I really won't go into detail about the parts, because either you have the voice of the character or you don't and if your acting is good, that won't really help too much if you don't fit the part all. You don't have to be the exact race of the character, since I know I'm asking for two very rare things on Newgrounds, a black female and an adult black male in his 40's.
- Spiral (Spy-ral): Young black female, age 19. I don't want any really squeaky, high-pitched giddy voices (Sorry, I know you're out there though). That's really all I ask. The age is most important.
(ROLE CHOSEN, SORRY GUYS)- Percy: Middle-aged black man, age 40. I kind of picture him having an African or Jamaican accent, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU AREN'T GOOD AT IT. I'm taking what I can get with this one lol.
You know the drill, drop me a PM telling me you want to try out, with a sample of where your voice was used, and your email address. I email you the script with your parts highlighted, and you go for it. I LISTEN TO EVERYBODY, give it a shot.
