Chicken Star 'Pilot' Episode

We’re casting a few roles for our animated show that we plan on presenting to various different networks and streaming sites.

For now, we are looking to get the first 5 minutes of voice acting alongside the first 5 minutes of animation and script to form the intro that we shall use as proof of material and quality that we would like to go for.

The short synopsis of the story goes like this: Anna’s father gets beheaded after an army of evil Conglomerate monkeys gets down to the chicken planet after they are contacted by an inside source that the chicken’s are unhappy with the way they are treated in the universe of animal planets and they plan on potentially rebelling.

Anna sees the incident and flees with her family to a near city village where they hide and try to figure out their next move. Anna quickly learns that she is still only considered as a child and her opinion is not really valued and appreciated, which, besides her father’s death, makes her even more angry and eager for revenge…

The storyline goes so that eventually she manages to kill the evil monkey that took her father’s life and to overthrow the Conglomerate’s government. However, after expecting that the ecstasy of life will happen after she achieves all of those things, her expectations are not met.

She falls into depression and thinks suicidal thoughts, but as she our main, lovely, fighting character, she tries to find new ways to make herself happy, only this time, she looks within (episode happening inside of her head), and she discovers that true happiness and fulfillment don’t come from the exterior, but actually from the inside.

The storyline and the episodes go further in-depth about what happens later and earlier, but this is, among other characteristics, messages and values, what we are building our show around. Below you will be able to find short descriptions about the characters that we are looking to cast for the initial 5 minutes of the show, other characters will be introduced later.

All the best.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

We would need a day or two worth of recording in a studio once the animation would be closer to finish, the dates are still to be decided but we will probably organize the studio days to be at some point/date towards the months of April and/or May; there will be online rehearsals.
