AN OPEN CALL FOR VOICE ACTORS

To help spread the grim words of Grim Willard’s Documentarian, we are building a troop of performers, those gifted with unique character and abilities, and we seek to develope a roster to include a wide range of performers.. Those chosen are to become part of a team whose job it will be to introduce to the greater world a somewhat mind-bending new Junior Fiction adventure series, “The Adventures of Grim Willard, A Grim Beginning - A Grimmer End”. A story in many parts.

As a Grim Willard Documentarian (the story’s narrator), the chosen actors need to be comfortable with giving public readings, open to travel, able to work independently, at the same time that they are willing to participate in a variety of theatric, (audio, video and live) productions. Beyond the obvious those chosen must also be willing to, in an agreed upon manner, interact with the media and press.. In essence we are looking for those who are comfortable with making the Adventures of Grim Willard A Grim Beginning, A Grimmer END! series their own.
The role of The Documentarian is that of an instructor or guide, that is to say, possessing a wealth of experience and a genuine desire to share what they know. The intended audience of The Documentarian should be considered as peer-like or mentorship rather than place of pedantism or of a know-it-all.
