Think you have what it takes to bring the characters of Blood Reign to life?!
I’m officially holding auditions for an animated passion project of mine. “Blood Reign: The Black Dinner”
“Blood Reign: The Black Dinner” is an animated murder mystery web series by me, Isaiah Keith Stephens.
Ten women. One Crown. One deadly night!
Ten princesses are gathered for a customary banquet. They are the guests of Queen Kathryn Valmont, whom they’ve all known their entire lives. When the Queen is mysteriously poisoned at the dinner, suspicions quickly arise. It seems that one of the princesses is the murderer, but the person who is suspected is mysteriously murdered soon after by a masked assailant. One by one, each princess is meets an untimely demise, and its soon realized that the killer…may likely be one of them. Or is it? If you’d like to audition for a role, or multiple roles, please record yourself (video OR audio) reciting the specified lines for the character/characters that you’re auditioning for, and send the recording to -
I’d suggest reciting each line a few different ways! (Sarcastically, Frightened, Emotionally) Make the character come to life! If you’d like to audition for multiple roles, please submit a different entry for each character.
Auditions will be held until Sunday April 3rd, 2016.
Your audition will be judged on two main factors:
-Acting ability -Sound quality of your recording
I’m looking for all kinds of voices, so don’t be afraid to try something different from what I think the characters could sound like. SURPRISE ME! You’re also more than welcome to include links to other voice acting jobs you’ve done! Casting decisions will be announced on Saturday, April 30th, 2016.
This is not a paying job, everyone working on this project is doing so on a voluntary basis
Character Backstory- Cleo Summerset "The Stoner"
The Summerset's are looked at as the trophy wives of the kingdom. Beautiful to look at, entertaining when need be, but ultimately useless to any real issues. And on paper, there is no one more useless than Cleo Summerset.
The Summerset's are next in line to rule the kingdom, but MANY feel the Cleo would be incompetent as a leader, and an embarrassment to the kingdom. The reason for the banquet being held is to discuss the situation and figure who truly should rule once the queen steps down. When looking at her, it'd be easy to count her out. Small in frame. Dimwitted. Lazy. But there is more to Cleo than what you'd think.
Much like Sterling, Cleo has never really befriended any of the other princesses of Sencis. Not because she didn't want to, but because she wasn't supposed to. The Summerset's have been the butt of too many jokes, and they've been formulating a plan to turn the kingdom upside down for decades.
This has been stressful for Cleo. So much so, that she barely speaks. To anyone.
Cleo Summerset is a mysterious girl. And that's before the people around her start dying.
