Zelminyuminine Audition (FEMALE ROLE)
This role is filled
This is Zelminyuminine (pronounced Zel-min-You-me-nine), her name is often shorthanded to “Zel”, with her full name only spoken as a gesture of formality. She is a female Lugarian that assumes the role of lead investigator of the Tanadranian government. Her personality is often informal/casual in contrast to Lucius (who has a more “disciplined” personality), which tends to conceal her high status.
Lugarians are telepathic creatures… the unique properties of their bodies allow them to fly and ignore forces of gravity. They are physically inferior to morphs (IE: the Fox shown) and often rely on short-range telekinesis to manipulate objects in an articulate manner. The stereotype of Lugarians both female and male are that they are highly social, open-minded creatures, looking down on more rigid personalities and methodologies.
Since Lugarians use thought articulators, anyone can assume the role of this character. Here are some basic points of what I’m looking for.
-The acting is convincing, the tone of voice is not forced and sounds natural. I don’t have too many notes regarding the character’s tone of speaking… it is a blank canvas at this time.
-The parts could consist of upwards of 4+ minutes worth of dialogue over the course of all current scenes. It is possible this could be a recurring character over the course of the series. I consider this a “mid-length” role.
-Can meet deadlines typically consisting of 1-3 weeks. Most requests are given well in advance. NOTE: If possible I want a quick turnaround for the first segment of lines… I would REALLY like to be able to finish my animation by march 24th if not sooner!
==HOW TO APPLY==
The part of the script that Zel takes part in is incomplete, so there are multiple ways to apply. You should attach one or more of the following:
-A clip/sample from a previous work.
-If you don’t have the above, try lines from a book, article, or publication to give me an idea of the tone of your voice.
-I don’t mind multiple outtakes!! If you can portray multiple types of voices please send them over as well.
-A reading from the script provided below.
================DRAFT SCRIPT (You can choose a specific part if you so wish, I don’t require the whole dialogue as an audition piece)————
*Lucius exits Karnagie’s office, carrying his briefcase with him as a lugarian approaches him. They walk towards the exit corridor.*
I disagree with your methods… its reckless to involve Karnagie.
I know he already suspects that whatever happened was not an accident… I’m inclined to agree with him.
You’re not a mind reader, don’t pretend to be one…
LONG PAUSE AS ZEL LOOKS BACK TOWARDS KARNAGIE’S OFFICE A MOMENT. When she responds, her voice changes to suggest she is mentally speaking to Lucius, her thought articulators becoming dormant during her dialogue. (NOTE: The change is not the actor’s voice, but rather an effect I’ll apply like a small echo.)
But your guess is correct this time I suppose.
I’d rather Karnagie be aware that everyone here is in danger. What are my orders?
Maintain your cover title as intergalactic attourney. Take up any legal dispute requests if you see them posted.
Very well… And?
You’ve been equipped with an etherial detector, which is why we insisted that you wear that wristwatch. *Lucius look at it curiously* That, and we know how much of a stickler you are for antique apparel.
My tastes are irrelevant…
I think it looks pretty on you. I picked it out myself.
It could have done without the studded crystal hearts. I’m sure my wife won’t appreciate that.
Anyways, the device has a range equivalent to around half the size of the circular floor engraving here *gestures to the floor*. You are to survey as much of the facility as possible using only normal clearance.
How do I know its working?
You’re a smart guy, I think you can figure that out on your own. We don’t know if the device actually works, the things it detects technically don’t exist in this dimension. In this case, you’re looking for a weapon.
What kind of weapon?
We don’t know that either. Most likely you’ll find something related to what happened here recently.
…And if I do find what i’m looking for?
Destroy it and report to me immediately.
What will you be doing then?
Nothing other than equipment failure seems plausible to blame at this time, so I’m going to make certain that Karnagie’s claims of “100% operating capacity” are actually true. I’ll also be looking for signs of software manipulation.
Karnagie has been known to cut corners… I still don’t think he has anything to do with the detection failure.
You’re most likely correct, but being thorough is part of the job. Speaking of which, be a dear and set up our room and board for us would you? Thanks.
*nods and they go their separate ways*.
((APPROXIMATELY 3 minutes worth of dialogue total))
