    About Project Zerk: (A Berserk Abridged Series) Episode 1 Casting

    What is Project Zerk?

    Project Zerk is a fan made abridged series of the 1997 anime version of Berserk, a manga by Kentaro Miura. The goal of this series is to simultaneously parody the story (from a place of love) as well as connect to the emotional core of the story that has made so many of us fall in love with it in the first place.


    We’ve decided the best way to obtain the absurdity and intrigue of some of our favorite abridged series is to take specific themes like masculinity and blow it up to explore it fully. This will hopefully lead to classic funnys as well as keep the core of the emotional heart of the story. Guts lives in and is growing up in a world of twisted hypermasculinity and the goal is to explore how this affects him as a character as well as his relations to others.


    Requirements:

    As this is an unpaid, fan project, your technical quality does not need to be of professional quality however having clearly better audio will be a factor upon which people will be chosen for the project. (Preference includes minimal to no background noise and no excessive peaking or clipping). 


    In terms of vocal performance, this is not a project where just “being able to do the voice” is enough. You have to be able to match the energy of some of these larger than life characters, along with good comedic timing with your performance! One’s acting capability will be the biggest factor in our casting of this project.


    Reason for No Payment

    I am but a humble college student, so I do not have access to the biggest pool of wealth. However, due to this I will work my hardest to ensure that this project is a fun place for all our members as well as an artistically satisfying story for us to tell. 


    Scripts will be posted for review by the entire cast to make suggestions, we will have read throughs involving everyone in that episode, and I will work my hardest in terms of directing to ensure that both the project and voice artist get a great take.


    Roles

    As this is the first episode in the project then most fans of the series would know that we are covering the brief look into The Black Swordsman arc from the comic. The only recurring characters cast will be Godo and the members of The Godhand. However, I will send out the episode 2 Casting Call when it comes out and I encourage members of the project to audition for another part! I do love when an actor covers two roles, so don’t be afraid to audition again if you’ve already voiced in the show.


    Final Notes

    1. VERY IMPORTANT: Berserk is a series with some scenes that are highly triggering to certain individuals. At this stage, I am unsure if the most hard to stomach content will be included, but we will be in active conversation with our cast about what is comfortable for them to present. So here I shall place a content warning. CW/ Sexual Assault, Sex, Murder, Gore. I highly suggest you be familiar with the entirety of the Golden Age arc of Berserk before auditioning.

    2. If you read this far, let me know in your audition by saying “Glasses: On” at the end of your audition. It’s just a nice reassurance that you read the above CW :).

    3. Berserk is extremely important to me, I’ve been a fan of the series for many years, so the goal is to honor the original work as much as parodize it. 

    4. The vibe I’m going for in terms of voices on this project are the 1997 anime’s voice actors, as well as the bloopers. Here are the outtakes from that production as an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YzHTt2Pns4 

    5. You are going to need a discord. We will be basing ourselves in a cast community server for ease of line submissions/script readings as well as just getting to know eachother better. My discord is Grumbo_McChumbo#0391 if you have any questions about the project.

    6. Have fun with your audition! I want to work with some fun peeps so I want to hear the enjoyment in the audition!


    That’s all she wrote. If I get a bunch of questions I’ll add an FAQ but for now, have fun! I am so excited to work with you all!


    Bon chance, mes amis! :)
