    Yes, here we have another casting call for a stop motion movie.
    The title of this stop motion is Transformers: 2025. The plot involves a squadron of Autobots being sent to a post-apocalyptic Earth to take down a rogue group of Decepticons.

    So onto the characters.

    Megatron

    Characters that need a voice (The ones you'll be auditioning for):

    Dai Atlas - Strong, rough around the edges, Elite Guard officer/drill sergeant. For this character I want a gravelly voice.
    Grapple - Sorrow Six Star

    Optimus Prime - CrypticIllusionist
    Sentinel Minor - Animated Sentinel Prime

    I am interested in Dai Atlas and the Optimus Prime guest appearance.
    Do you have anything specific in mind for those characters to say that I could audition with? I can give it a shot either way, just curious.

    Also, am I correct to assume the 'Dai' in Dai Atlas is pronounced like the word 'die'?

    Yeah, episode one's script is complete so I have lines for all Autobots. The 'Cons don't appear until the second episode which I'm still writing.

    Sample lines for all Autobots:

    Dai Atlas: "As I've said before, no. Besides it's none of your business."
    "I can tell you're a punk already."

    Optimus Prime: "The other two have already been informed and are preparing your ship."
    "Which makes it an ideal place for the Decepticons to set up their base of operation."

    Overdrive: (Listening to some rock song) "Oh yeah, this song is kickin'."
    "Earth? Wasn't that planet destroyed years ago?"

    Grapple: "Can you hand me that wrench up there?"
    "Excellent, now we've got a ship that can fly."

    Cosmos: "We should arrive at Earth in about three megacycles."
    "What is there to say? They know who I am."

    Sentinel Minor: "Any idea why my brother wants to meet with you?"
    "Do you know I can court-matrial you for this?"

    Yep.

    Well, after listening to Sorrow Six Star, I've opted not to audition for Dai Atlas as his take on it, I ensure you, is better than how I was planning to do it...that and I only just now noticed the "drill sergeant" bit and I had perceived a tone a bit too quiet for that.

    In any case, I've made up my audition for Optimus Prime's appearance.

    Nice audition, you got Prime.

    Too bad about not doing an audition for Dai Atlas though.

    you're not trying out because you thought mine was bad?
    shouldn't that be reason TO do it?
    I agree that I am not the best at low and gravely. but...

    your comment reminds me of my friend

    he calls it honest
    I call it rude.

    if didn't like your Optimus voice I sure wouldn't tell you mine was better on a public forum without backing it up. (this is actually not the case it is pretty decent I have heard better and much worse my optimus voice is AWFUL)

    now I am not mad... just confused.
    you know the old saying about what to do if you can't say something nice?
    right?

    Whoops, total error in my post, sorry. I thought yours was better. "his" should've been "my".
    EDIT: Well, that didn't make sense either come to think of it. I must have typed it out while multiple different wordings were going through my head; in any case, I said the opposite of what I meant.

    Stockade: "Banzai-Tron's not going to be happy about this."
    "We've got Autobots."

    Astrotrain: "Afraid so, they're ten mile to the southwest."
    "Things are getting too hot around here."

    Archforce: "That's right Autobots, you can't stop me."
    "This is a battle not a ballet."

    Dirge: "Yes sir."
    "Energon production is at optimal levels Commander."

    Well, I've decided to make this a movie rather than a series. I think I can get it to flow better that way. I still need help with voices. And there will be more characters to appear, I just have to figure out who and if they even have lines as I continue to write.

    I also made this test of animation a few days ago. It's only about the animation. No sound or anything.
