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
Character Backstory-Oswald Valmont: "The Casanova"Oswald “Oz” Valmont is a man of simple means. He likes to surround himself with beautiful things and beautiful people. And being one of the reigning princes of Sencis has made these needs very easy for him to meet. His father died when he was nine years old, so he had to learn to “man up” very early on. Helping to raise his younger brother, and aid his mother in any royal duties that he could. This all became very overwhelming very quickly. But luckily for Oz, there was light at the end of the tunnel.
In Sencis, men are NOT allowed to rule. This has been the way things have gone for over 200 years. After one king ordered a massacre on the entire DuVallē bloodline, and a string of tyrannical kings almost wiping out the entire kingdom by sending it into wars it should’ve never been involved with over the following decades, it was the people of Sencis who elected change the way their kingdom was ruled. No male shall ever take the throne again.
The crown would get in the way of his jet setting lifestyle anyway. His on again off again relationship with Matilda “Tilly” Malady is one of the only things that keeps him in Sencis. Oz, nor his brother, will never become king, and this is something he is perfectly content with. But this is because Oz has another secret altogether.
What will be his fate? Stay tuned.
