My name is René Jacob. I am a 38 years old filmmaker from god old germany. Half a year ago I started to use Reallusions software “iClone” to make movies. You may have seen some of them.
Since january 2013 I am working on my dream project. A classic western movie. It will be a short story, about 25 minutes long. I want to finish the movie at the end of this year, depending on my daily working schedule.
A short summery of the story:
Stephen is on a journey. He wants to revenge the death of his indian wife Takala. She was humilated and murdered by seven people who attacked the couple. The leader of this group was an old sheriff. Stephen had to watch all the time and he barely survived the attack. Now he has only one goal – to kill all those men!
This is not all of the story. There is more than just a straight revenge storyline.
I made a little promo clip to show everyone the atmosphere and the desired look of the movie. (The “old film effect” will be reduced in the final movie)
For the first time I will need voice talents to get the story of my iClone movie told. There are several characters for the main cast and some other with a supporting role.
STEPHEN; Age: 35
The Hero of the story. Straight, no humor or sarcasm. He has only one goal – to kill those men who killed his wife.
Number of lines: 19
THE OLD SHERIFF; Age: 57
This man is evil but on the other hand, he is a coward. Only brave with other men. A dark,smoky voice would be cool.
Number of lines: 10

He is a young men, married his love from the school. He want to live a decent life so he hires himself as an deputy. Noone could be more innocent then him.

She is a strong woman and she knows what she wants. In this case, Susan wanted to marry Michael. With this man wit her, Susan want’s to start a family.

I hope you find this project interesting and I really hope to get all roles their voices.
At the end some technical stuff:
I will give everyone, who playes a character in my movie, particular instructions how to speech the role. Please do at least two variations of every sentence, so I can choose the best version for the movie. There is a script written in german, but there is also a translated english version of the script. I will send it to everyone who takes part in the movie. I used a software for translation and my minor english grammer skills to translate ... :cowboy: (So if anyone of the native speakers want to check the dialog lines, this would be very cool. Just e-mail me ...)
At the end I will need a “wav” file; 16bit; 48kHz.
Everything elese can be discussed via skype or e-mail.
Thank you very much for reading this.
