Audition Description

This animated comedy/reboot follows the adventures of very cool, but very different pop stars as they travel from gig to gig in their tour bus.

  • Role #1 - Editor

    he editor is where you edit the episode. As the editor, your job is to edit the animatic, edit the shots together, add cool effects and transitions, and send in the XML file and picture lock so I can make the music and sound design and send in the stems if you wanna finalize the edit. You can use any program, but Final Cut Pro X is preferable. EDIT: Since I'm planning to switch to Pro Tools for Audio Post, once I get that, you can export an AAF, and Picture Lock for me.

  • Role #3 - Storyboard Artists

    Here's where you apply to be a storyboard artist. A storyboard artist takes the script and the radio play and visualises it. Since the reboot combines western techniques with anime techniques, you can add some anime expressions and so on with Ami and Yumi. Try to stay on model. The characters from the original should be designed like the original's (For Ami and Yumi, I prefer Ami and Yumi in these designs: https://images.app.goo.gl/UDqNF353SDq22SSz7 https://images.app.goo.gl/5k65cH4u9Pv6AVuu5 and the reboot exclusive characters to my style. You don't wanna go overboard with the expressions like what they do in Ren and Stimpy. However, you can use anime expressions for the anime inspired characters like Ami and Yumi. To apply, you can submit a storyboard test, a comic strip, or a portfolio. I like this template for storyboards. https://images.app.goo.gl/iu65J7QN5RX3ggHH7

  • Role #4 - Background Artist

    Here's where you apply to be a background artist. A background artist takes the layout from the layout artist and makes the backgrounds, close ups, background layers for multi planes, and more. The background style I'm going for is a mix of SpongeBob, Club Penguin, and Anime. To apply, make a background using reference from any place, like Sam's Club, McDonald's, and etc.

  • Role #6 - Sheet Timer

    Here's where you apply as a sheet timer. A sheet timer takes the animatic from the editor and plans the timing for the animation on a time sheet. A time sheet is a table on where you take notes on the timing. I recommend these tutorials if you don't know how to use a time sheet.

  • Role #7 - Animators

    Here's where you apply to be an animator for the reboot. The animators take the layout and time sheet from the layout artist and sheet timer to make the characters come to life. Please note that that the reboot has a cartoony/anime style to it. In short, try to animate the anime animated characters (Like Ami, Yumi, Julie, and James)'s mouths (except Kaz) with the Japanese method of lip syncing where it's flapping. Another thing to keep in mind, don't worry about compositing the shot yourself as the editor will handle that in post. Also, you can use any program, but Toon Boom or OpenToonz is recommended. I'll even animate some scenes myself? The style of animation in this reboot is hand drawn animation.

  • Role #8 - Color Artists

    Here's where you audition for a clean up and color artist. The clean up and color artist cleans up the animation sketches from the animators. Please note that I really like thin outlines and vibrant colors. Also, I like the outlines nice and neat.

    Here's where you apply to be an effects animator. An effects animator takes the cleaned up animation from the clean up and color artist and the time sheet/exposure sheet from the sheet timer to animate the adlibbed effects (whether they're cycled or not). It can be like fire, smoke, debris, dust clouds, steam, splashes, and etc.

  • Role #10 - Scene Planner

    Here's where you apply to be a scene planner. A scene planner makes the 3D Models and 3D animations if needed. Think of a rollercoaster ride, or an epic space battle. Maybe even the Planet Express rocket from Futurama for example. You can use any 3D Animation program, but Blender3D is recommended.

  • Role #14 - Rigging Artists

    This is where you apply for an artist who does 3D Modeling and Rigging, but only for select episodes that are CGI instead of the usual Hand Drawn animation. They take the designs and make a 3D Model of the scene, characters, and props, and make rigs of the characters and sometimes props. I would go for something Pixar quality as possible. You can use any program, but Blender3D is recommended.

  • Role #15 - 3D Animators

    This is where you apply to be a 3D Animator. Again, this is only for select episodes where it's CGI instead of Hand drawn. They take the 3D Models and Storyboards and build the world of the scene and make it come to life. You don't have to worry about texturing, lighting, 3D effects animation, or rendering the animation, because I can handle it easily since it's probably the best I can do for 3D animation. For the 3D animation, I would go for something like Nitrogen Studios where it's cartoony. Think Point Grey Pictures's Sausage Party or the CGI Thomas the Tank Engine. Again, you can use any program, but I recommend Blender3D

  • Role #16 - Videographer

    Here's where you apply to be a videographer. A videographer directs and films the live action parts (not counting stock footage). They also do some occasional photography (not counting famous paintings, pictures of cities, or celebrity pictures.) I recommend using a good camera, with good quality boom mics (Zoom Recorders are recommended, good lighting, and some good editing software. As videographer, you're also responsible for having locals in your area if they're interested to join in. Weather it be acting or plush making or something.

  • Role #17 - Matte Painters

    This is where you apply to be a Matte Painter for the 3D animated episodes. A matte painter creates the sky line of the 3D world. Whether it be clouds, the sky, stars, the moon, the sun, this artist will get the jist of it. You can use any program for the art program, but the 3D program recommended to import it is Blender3D.

  • Role #18 - Previs Animators

    Here's where you apply to be a Previs animator for the 3D animated episodes. They take the storyboard and turn it in the 3rd dimension for the rough layout. They also do the rough idea of the camera movement. You can use any program, but I recommend Blender3D. When all the layouts are finalized, I would delete the rough 3D Models, and replace them with the final models from the 3D Modeler/Rigger for the final layout.

  • Role #19 - 3D Crowd Animators

    Here's where you apply to be a 3D Crowd animator. Sometimes one animator isn't enough for the crowds, so they would be handed by crowd animators. They would use patented, automated animation tools for when the background characters are walking, talking, buying a hot dog, and etc. You can use any program for the automated animation, but Blender3D is my recommendation for implementing it.

  • Role #20 - Supervising Animator

    Here's where you apply to be a supervising animator. Supervising animators are in charge of the animation aspects along with the director (me). They vary depending on the episode and come up with their ways of animation directions. For the 2D Supervising Animators (myself included), your priorities are: 1. Timing (You work with the sheet timer to give them your ways of timing, to some animation math (see the sheet timer role for more information), and to do some checking). 2. The Animation (You work with the animators to see how the time sheet/exposure sheets are in action (They depend on who's in charge, so that depends).) 3. The Compositing (You work with the editor to see if it works right. You give the editor some advice on the compositing style (which in this case are cartoon characters with Japanese techniques of lighting), and see if it works right. For the 3D Supervising Animators, your priorities are: 1. Giving advice on the animation style to the animators (In this case it's Nitrogen Studios) 2. Technical Direction (Sometimes, there may be goofs in the animation process, so you check them out for mistakes)

  • Role #21 - Compositor

    Here's where you apply to be a compositor. A compositor compiles the elements of the shot together and adds effects to the specific shot. You can use any program, but Adobe After Effects is preferable, and there's a specific compositing style I'm going for. I'm going for the compositing style where it's a cross between American cartoons, and anime. Specifically, having cartoon characters with Japanese lighting methods (Like diffusion, realistic lighting, and etc.) I recommend a tutorial from the creators of Senpai Club for that. https://youtu.be/R0Xfbzgyj30

  • Role #22 - Music/Band Director

    Here's where you apply to do the additional music as a band director for your band, kinda like how they had TAS 1000, an obscure Canadian band, to do some music for the nostagic MMO, Club Penguin. A band director is a founding member of a band, and they usually compose the music for their band.

Landed 2 movie roles... Thank you ExploreTalent... Christina landed 2 Feature Film roles. These are independent movies that will be shown in all the major International Film Festivals. She just joined ExploreTalent and already has more opportunities than we ever imagined. An elite modeling management agency in New York contacted us after seeing Christina's profile on ExploreTalent. A casting director personally asked Christina to audition personally for both a TV SHOW and a Music Video. A producer/director from Tampa requested a dancing video of Christina for a short he is producing. We are actually overwhelmed by the response we have gotten from working with ExploreTalent Casting Directors and Producers. Thank you again. You are the BEST, Christina McGill, Actress/Model & Jeanne McGill, Mother.
