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 -
Subject line: (Character Name) -Audition, (Your Name/Pseudonym)
Example: Sterling - Audition, Jane Smith
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:
-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
Giles Emmeric: "The Butler"
The Emmeric’s have tended to Woodbriar Manor for over six generations. They know the estate better than any other living soul. They know it’s nooks, and crannies, AND it’s secrets. And Woodbriar Manor, has many!
An intuitive scholar since his youth, Giles Emmeric was set to become a businessman at a very young age. When his father died in a freak accident at the castle, his family had no way of making money, so Giles, being the only able-bodied member of his family, had to assume his fathers position at the castle in order to help. What was supposed to be a temporary fix has turned into a long term position.Though it took a while, Giles has grown to love his position at the castle. He tended to the needs of the king and queen from the age of 16, and now almost 25 years later, he has grown quite fond of the entire family. Driven by an unbridled love for the Valmonts, he will do anything to protect them. Especially the Queen. Since the Kings passing, Giles grew somewhat of a special connection with the Queen. They are close. Some would say VERY close.
His blunt and somewhat harsh demeanor doesn't always go over well with the other housing families of Sencis. But his loyalty and strong value system has never been taken into question. He is completely selfless and follows a strong moral code. Some might say, TOO STRONG.
What will be his fate? Stay tuned.
