Animated short film

Hello, you old indians.
I'm, together with and a group of four, currently working on an animated short.
However, do we have a rather crucial obstacle on our backs, and it's about here you come in, dear MBN:

If you're interested to voice act, on a fairly professional level, or just are feeling exhorted to give it an attempt; send me a PM, and we can talk further. We're in the search of a man, foremost in the age of 20 and above, who's capable of acting as this gentleman just here below, which happens to be the main character.
You should precedencely have some kind of whiskey-gravel voice. Tom Waits-style.

Anyway, here're some temporary sceenshots from the film:

So once again, as said, if you're interested - just send me a PM.
But keep in mind, this is strictly pro bono.

"Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." --- Paul Bowles

Wow, the screenshots look superb.
I'm afraid I won't be able to help you, I have a little boy's voice and my best impression of a low whiskey+cigarettes voice would sound silly at best.
Good luck with the whole thing. And chance of the film getting on the internet afterwards?

Looks very professional

Let me guess: The being in the first picture is the vampire, and the being in the second picture is his date?

Looks stunning.

The first charecter reminds me of "Captain Black" from captain scarlet
The second reminds me of the girl from the PS3 "heavy rain" demo...only far better. (the overall detail level is very good, heavy rain just had detail at the eyes and everything else was much lower).

Dont think id be very good though, I can never keep any voice "stable" enough.

Thanks for the kudos.

Actually, I should have added a note about that you favorably should own some quite decent recording equipment.
However, the thing is we've been looking over for a foreign voice actor, and at best found a british gay, ex-porno actor. Who was fucking horrid.
So, if anyone know someone appropriate, stretch out your tentacles and give us an helping hand. That'd be cool.

The flick is scheduled to be done some weeks before christmas, anyways. But we're not yet sure if it'll end up in Swedish or English, nevertheless, depending on the current situation.
