Short Animated Film Needs Actor

Dwarfed Films are producing another short 3D animated film, this time a comedy about a door to door salesman.
The role requires one male actor with a North American accent. We do not require any other actors for any other parts.
The film will be approximately 2 - 2.5 minutes long.
This will be an unpaid position but it is a great opportunity to show your comedy prowess and may lead to future paid work.
Actor will recieve credit and copy of the completed film.
We do not need a bunch of CV's and headshots - but we do want funny, smart people with great acting ability and vocal talents!

  • When recording, speak across the microphone rather than in to it!
  • It's an animated short but we're not looking for comedy/"Muppet-type" vocals.
  • Don't try to be wacky. Be yourself and follow the direction in the PDF sample.

  • You will need an audio recording software program such as Audacity (freedownload @ )
  • A reasonable quality directional microphone.
  • A quiet area to record in.
  • A file compression program such as 7Zip (free download @ or Winzip or Winrar.

NOTE: If chosen for the role in this animated film, all your future
recordings for the part will be done in this manner – so sound quality
is very important. If your sound output is noisy, crackly or fuzzy please
do not submit for consideration as you will not be selected.
