I am starting a series, a year and a half from now, called Thomas and Friends: ReBorn!  It is taking Thomas back to its roots, but with new age characters thrown in,  and I want it to be a team effort. so I need:

- script writers are all taken
-The least number of voice actors possible. I will explain that later


The characters that will speak in series 1 are:

Thomas
Henry
Gordon
James
Percy
Spencer
Donald and Douglas
Diesel
Dart
Murdoch
Mavis
Sir Topham Hatt

I need the least amount of actors to keep it simple.  please audition for more than one character

then for one episode:
Skarloey-grrrr! I am doing him!
Rheneas
Peter Sam
Sir Handel
Rusty

I would like these characters to sound more or less like their CGI counterparts.





I hope this sounds good.  It will be a long time in the pipeline.

Important bits.

If you want to be a script writer,  send me a sample within the next week, so I can decide.

Voice actors I don't need as quickly.

I know this was very vauge, so if you have any questions, ask below!

PM script samples to me on this forum.

have fun!

Can you explain why you need limited voice actors? And why a year and a half from now?

I will try for script writer. If you give me about a two weeks per script. I have to write for my own series! Can I send you a sample of the script for the first upcoming episode of my series as an example of what kind of writing I do? Edward doesn't speak?  Undecided He's my favorite character!

He said it was to keep it simple. And probably a year and a half to prepare for the start. Maybe finish a layout/set, collect some more engines, coaches, and freight cars. That's my guess.

   Sure Caleb,  are you able to write for narrow gauge engines?  The reason I needed the scripts so soon is so I know what to buy.

i might be able to write a script and/or supply voices. does it matter if they're UK voices? i find them easier to do. i might be able supply the voices for Percy, Henry, Skarloey, Rheneas, Peter Sam, Dart, and if you want i can also do Toby and Edward.

That is JUST what I wanted to read!  That would be awesome!  I like the UK voices better!  Send me samples of script and voices and I can make a choice.  Good Luck!

Great! Yes, I am able to write for NG engines. But I will send you the script for my upcoming episode just because I've already written it.  Smiley

Sounds like an awesome idea you have there. Would it  matter if the voices had a "fake but not horrible" accent?

I probably could do James and Gordon, but it really depends. My schedule does't really leave me anytime to do much, but I could defiantly fit this in.
