Legends Animated is switching gears a bit by having our next production be a crime drama set in the 1940s-1950s. It will be Legends Animated’s first original production (Detecter Pig is a co-production with comic artist Sergio Willis) which will have a film noir feel to it, but with a hint of playfulness.

Feel free to audition for any of the roles below if interested: it’s under a SAG New Media contract, so both union and non-union actors are welcome. Also feel free to share this post with anyone who may be interested:

Email info@legendsanimated.org with the characters’ names you’d like to audition for in the subject box. You will then receive the script and can record your readings as an MP3 file; you are welcome to use free software like Audacity or free mobile apps like HI-Q MP3 Voice Recorder Lite to record your audition.

Your audition does not have to be professionally recorded but your voice should be heard clearly (please record in a quiet space with no background noise) and we will only accept MP3 files. We will no longer accept requests for audition info after July 16th.
