Back in the annals of time, a young but enthusiastic artist by the name of Andrew Hussie decided that he really liked rap. So, him and Tauhid Bondia got together and made:
It's awesome. Give it a read. No, seriously, click that image in the spoiler there. It'll take you where you need to go.
Anyway, I was wondering the youtubes one day and realized, hey, is there a dub of this? Reasonable question to ask. Voice actors are crazy people, maybe they wanted to tackle this beast.
A quick cursory search established that no, it did not exist.
So you know what? I'm going to college. It's a time to experiment. Let's do this.
Voice auditions are now open until August 20th for: (Bolded characters have notes underneath the list)
- Ice Cream Man
- Fronty Bassdrive
- Mix Pack
- Ice's Mom
- Guy who gets his ass kicked by ice on page 22
- Various side charaters
General: Send all auditions to bonzibuddy151 [a] gmail.com, and please include an email, skype, msn, or something else where I can reliably contact you.
Rap auditions, supply your own beat. They're all over youtube. Make sure your mic quality is good and make sure that you're able to take direction. This is imperative.
After the first round of auditions, you will be called back for a second round if you made the cut.
Ice Cream Man: A younger white man. Seems stoic, but is passionate about what he does and is on a quest for vengance against stelth, who killed his father. Must be able to rap incredibly well. (Audition page: All of ice's rap here.)
Stelth: Big angry black dude. Bitter and cruel. Think evil Black Dynamite. Must be able to rap incredibly well. (Audition page: All of Stelth's rap here)
Fronty Bassdrive: Older man who's obnoxious and terrible at rapping. Doesn't have to be a good rapper. (Ideally I would like to perform this part myself, but I will leave it open to somebody who's better than me in an instant.) (Audition page: All of Fronty's rap here)
Mix-Pack: Relatively small part. Just be able to knock what bit of rap you have out of the park. (Audition page: All the rap here)
Flystrobe: Nerdy sounding guy who's decent at rapping but terrible at switching shades. Must be a decent rapper, and must be able to appropriately falter at the right parts while making it sound natural. (Audition page is All the rap here.))
Ice's Mom: Only lady. Sassy black woman who don't need no man or no exercise. She's bold and beautiful, and her son is a deadbeat. Kick some ass. You get one page. Make it the best you've ever made. (Audition page: All the black lady sass on this page.)
As for the other characters, just find lines for them that you like and record them. I'll distribute them accordingly, and if they're good enough, I may just use the audition lines.
Any questions or comments, shoot me a PM or send me a message on my tumblr, paulsradicalpad. Let's make this the solid faithful rendition this fantastic comic deserves!
(And if you want to pimp out the project, spread this post around tumblr! It'll make more people aware, bring in more talent, and generally make the project more awesome.)
