hi-ya gang! I'm very new to the VA world. I'm looking to make some friends via my new project.
I started working on a script for an audio-play right after college, but never took the time to finish it....until this week. This story is at least 5 years in the making, and I have most of the story arcs for the next 2 expansions.
============================================
The story is called "The Last Day: Origins", and it is the beginning of a much larger work about the goings on in a walled city during the last years of Earth. no one knows that the world will end, or even expects it. they are just living their lives.
The main drama revolves around a boy named Silace, who acquires strange new skills after a visit to a new Full-dive Virtual reality Arcade, and his buddy Steve who is kind of a genius. The creator of the Arcade Kison, finds himself in a desperate situation as he tries to recreate the image of his daughter, Allison. There are a few other characters who carry the plot as the stage is set in the post apocalyptic, totalitarian city.
the entire 5 episode script sets the pace, lines up the characters, and leads us up to the world's final adventure.
============================================
I am looking for VA's to cast the 4 main characters, and 2 main supporting characters.
Main Character:
Silace (self cast) here's the only voice acting I've ever really done. there are skit scattered across the whole album.
Steve - (Silace's Best friend) a nerdy, but cocky teen with an aggressive "take control" attitude, and a great since of humor
Kison - A stern and focused scientist turned maniacal after certain "tragedies" befall him (basically lex luthor, turned joker)
Allison - (may need to be Dual cast) Has the sweet side of an innocent young girl (6-10 years old) Think White Queen from Resident Evil
, or Tima from the Anime Metropolis

Allison2 - her other side speaks with all the aggression, sarcasm, anger, and vindictive qualities of an embittered 20-something Goth woman (Think Ginger from the werewolf movie, Gingersnaps)

Supporting Characters:
Bradley Jameson - Mr kison's Assistant. Strong, forceful, serious, and calm. (Think Owen Burnett from Gargoyles)
Uncle Scooter - Steve's jolly old uncle. talks like a kooky old man from the 50's
===========================================
Anyone interested should contact me via email before the end of July so i can send you lines for audition. it would be nice to start production in August with the lines already finished. hopefully this series will attract the attention of some people who can invest into it, and We might be able to get a Superhero Anime series or something (fingers crossed)
Again my email is here.
Thanks

Kison

MR.KISON:
Some time this evening, the system was not only left RUNNING, but, for some reason, it's also damaged!  Now I want answers!  I want to know why there were 2 kids in the main systems room UNATTENDED!  That room's not even open to the PUBLIC! I want to know WHO they are, WHAT they were doing!
(off to the side)
Jameson!
JAMESON:
Yes sir.
MR.KISON:
Lock the main halls and all the exits.  Nobody leaves this room until I know who was on that shift.

(different sCENE- tHIS IS THE SCENE WHERE KISON REVEALS WHAT MADE HIM FINALLY CRACK)
KISON:
Absolutely honey.  but right now daddy needs to make sure that those mean old Neo Soldiers don't try to take you away.
ALLISON:
Huh?  NEO Soldiers?
KISON:
My vitals are constantly being monitored by NEO!  Right now they're probably wondering why I've died so many times, and when they FIND you here.... You know that they'll just want to use you for their own devices, don't you?
ALLISON:
You're Bluffing!
MR.KISON:
You think I didn't plan for this?  you think you're really in control here!  This is just a test to see if you're worth the final plan my dear!  When NEO Gets here, they're gonna see you have full virtual simulation capabilities, and you know what that means.
ALLISON:
You think they'll try to turn me back into a video game?
KISON:
Probably dear, or something worse.  But don't worry.  daddy's not gonna let them do that.
ALLISON:
(THINKING OUT LOUD)
they'll try to turn me into a training arcade for their soldiers....
KISON:
(SAD MOMENT OF INSANITY)
they'll try.  We'll just play along with whatever they say, for a little while...heh...they tried before didn't they honey?  They tried to take you away.  But I figured out a way to ..heh, heh, get you back...heh, heh, heh, didn't I? (chuckles)They think they can take you away from me, heh, heh, ha! Ha! but Daddy, heh, heh, heh, heh. Daddy has a better idea. (Maniacal laughter)

MR.KISON:
(disoriented)
What?  Mom!  what are you doing here?
MOM:
Don't you use that tone of voice with me young man!  If anything you should be saving that voice for the bullies at school.  Hmmm?
MR.KISON:
Huh?  The bullies...at....
MOM:
You know what your problem is Abby?  Your too soft.  That's right you're just a whiny little brat with no bite.  Aren't you.  Just wait until your father gets home. 
MR.KISON:
Ugnh...papa?  where..where is he?
ALLISON:
Seriously Kison!  Are you gonna just sit there and let her talk to you like that?
MR.KISON:
(still disoriented)
But it's my mom...i can't just..
ALLISON:
Of course you can. Watch.
(ALLISON SHOOTS MOM)
SOUND: GUN COCKS
SOUND: GUN FIRES
SOUND: BODY HITS THE FLOOR
MR.KISON:
Ahhhhh!
ALLISON:
See.  Now was that so hard?
MR.KISON:
You're insane!  I-I know what you're trying to do to me...
ALLISON:
I'M TEACHING YOU!!!  Teaching you how to get what you WANT so you don't have to keep running to ME FOR IT!
(ALLISON TURNS TO GUN ON KISON)
SOUND: GUNFIRES
MR.KISON:
Ahhhh!  You shot me!
ALLISON:
If you ever call me insane again, it won't be in the leg next time!  I can do whatever I want to do to you in here, as many time as I want to do it.
MR.KISON:
(STARTS TO PANT AND WIMPER)
ALLISON:
If I wanna shoot you in the head...
SOUND: GUN FIRES
ALLISON:
...I can do that!  I control this world. 
MR.KISON:
(gasps for air)
*cough* *cough*  Ahhhh!
ALLISON:
So you can quit begging for DEATH.  You can't die in here!
MR.KISON:
no,no, no, no....GET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE!
ALLISON:
(gently)
Aw.  Look at you.  Your're crying like a little baby.  Aw, come here....shhh, shhh, shhh.  Abby, you're just gonna have to learn faster, that's all.
MR.KISON:
(sobbing)
ALLISON:

PAPA:

MR.KISON:
Oh no.  Not him.  No papa, i wasn't...
PAPA:
Oh and you're gonna lie to me too?  Looks like all them beatings I gave you weren't good enough.  But I'll fix ya.
(END SCENE)

Audition Scene

ALLISON:
Now here's the scenario Kison. The world isn't fair, and you, little maggot, have found a way to capitalize on the unfairness.  haven't you?  I mean, that's the whole reason I was created.  Right?  To give people things that they can't naturally have.
But you never really let them have it. do you Abby?  No!  YOU found a way to let them THINK that they have what they want, as long as they're plugged in.  And here's the best part.  You charge them for it!
You have no idea what goes on in here when you're not looking, do you?  People don't come here to pretend to be rock stars, or to go surfing!  They come here to get away with murdering their bosses, and screwing each others' wives.  They come here to cut themselves, overdose, and jump off of buildings.  They come here to live out their darkness, not their dreams!

Jameson

JAMESON:
Where's the Boy!
GUARD:
Sir! We received a transmission that the leak was fixed and that we were to return to base.
JAMESON:
WHAT!  I don't know what you're trying to pull here Captain, but if you don't get back out there and do the job I told you to do, Alpha 7 is going to end up being the new code for bathroom mishaps on the arcade floor!  Understood?
GUARD:
Negative Sir....*sigh*..I was sure that
JAMESON:
I don't know what you THINK you heard, and I don't care right now!  Get back out there and do your job, NOW!

Steve

Posted by Jashae Slaughter


STEVE:
Ah.  here we go.  "For headaches, minor back pain, and randomly passing out".
SILACE:
It doesn't say that!
STEVE:
well, this is what I got, so it's gonna have to do for now. We gotta get outta here, like yesterday.  I'm not too sure how safe we are here now that those guards know where my lab is.
SILACE:
Huh?  wh-where we goin?
STEVE:
We gotta get out of Rivers!
SILACE:
What?!  Why?
STEVE:
Seriously?!  Um...G.I. Joe...and the Kisonic Task Force?  (Mocking the Guards) "We've got the building surrounded!"  Bullets flying through the air?  At you?  Ring a bell?
SILACE:
A little...but where are we gonna go?
STEVE:
ahh...I've got an Uncle living up near Harbor town.  We should be safe there for a few days unless N.E.O. gets involved.  Then we're REALLY screwed.
SILACE:
Aw man!  This SUCKS!  I just wanted to play the game.  Ahhh..my head!  It hurts sooooo bad.
STEVE:
Listen, we gotta catch the next bus outta here, just in case they put trackers on my car.  So take your pills and lets go before something worse happens.
SOUND: FOOTSTEPS WALKING AWAY
SILACE:
Awww Man!  This SUCKS!!!
STEVE:
(From across the room)
Silace!  Let's go!  I don't wanna die tonight, I got stuff that requires us....not dying!
SILACE:

STEVE:
I KNOW!  "This sucks", I already heard you!  Let's GO!

NARRATOR:
     There is a corporation in the city of Rivers called Kisonic Enterprises.  They've released a new type of video game called NEW DESTINY. The full-dive virtual reality system uploads your mind into a computer and plays out your fantasies. Whatever you can imagine, you get to live out for the allotted amount of time.  
     Kisonic Enterprises stands to make billions of credits in a short amount of time with their game, which they say is geared by a learning Artificially Intelligent entity. They say it is alive. It is programmed to entice a person's imagination and bring it to it's extent.  So far, only society's elite, and prestigious are allowed to test the game, as well as a select few citizens, who were randomly picked from the city. There's so much controversy behind the game that every TV show, magazine, and news article wants a piece of the story. Whatever the truth is, there remains only one way to find out.  
Our story begins with two friends, Steve and Silace, who have taken it upon themselves to personally unveil the mysteries that lie within the New Destiny Arcade System.  As they sneak into the facility, they target the best arcade machine available, and make their move.
