About Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (Full Animated Musical)

Synopsis: One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.

I have been listening to this soundtrack nonstop lately. Who doesn't love a musical about a murderous barber and a cannibal restaurant? This dark horror comedy truly is one of a kind and I wanted to pay tribute to it in a unique way that, to my knowledge, hasn't been done before. I wanted to have a fully animated version of the show on Youtube for anyone to watch. This is a huge project and everyone involved should be ready to be committed to it for a while, this will take many months to animate, record, and edit. I hope to get voice acting done by the end of 2018, however depending on how things go and complications that may happen unknown to us, it could take two or more years (not counting time it takes for me to edit and animate), so please be prepared for that. This will be entirely animated in stop motion.

Voice Actor Info: This is a very, very mature show, which as this is the case I would prefer you be at least 16 to audition for a lead, with the exception of Tobias (explained below in his listing), and 13 to audition for chorus. Keep in mind this is a vocally intense show. If you are unable to hold harmonies or intense high and low notes, this probably isn't a project you should audition for. You should also be comfortable with mild profanity (hell, piss, etc.). The only pre cast role is Pirelli, which will be played by me. Every other role will be cast in a non-biased fashion and based on if I feel like you can handle the role based on your audition alone. Also note: When I say Voice Type, I mean Alto, Tenor, Soprano, Bass, and Baritone or anything in between. When I say Voice Range, I mean your exact range, for example, mine would be C2-A5. If you do not know it, you can do a test to find it here: it takes less than three minutes!

Composer Info: I am not asking you to compose new music, but simply to be familiar with the music of this show and be able to play the songs in it. I may have only one or multiple depending on the skills everyone that applies has. You do not need to add sound effects (i.e. factory whistles and other effects in the show) so that is something to keep in mind.

Assistant Animator Info: I have decided to animate this in traditional art form. However, my style tends to be very cartoony when I'm not taking my time, and to get this done quickly I will probably be rushing a lot. I am looking for assistant animators that can balance out a few cartoony looking numbers with beautiful imagery, this can range from creating backgrounds to full on character animation. 

Please note none of the images used in this casting call are mine, they are only to show the characters. new listing on BTVA for those whom that's more convenient for, although I definitely will check this one more often.
