So I'm creating an animated flash type thing for, I dunno, maybe YouTube as a hobby?
This role is probably the 4th or 5th most major character. He's a superintelligent, not-insane gerbil created by a gleefully evil mad scientist. Perhaps in defiance of her evil, he chooses to believe in causes like social justice, environmentalism. He's bookish, geeky, and also tiny, in a lab run by an evil madwoman and her basically also evil henchpersons.
Complicating matters a little bit is, later in the show (11 episodes) he also gains a human form he can morph into. His human form is African, being able to have African-American voice tones is a consideration for this role. (Actually having African ancestry would probably be the easiest way, but people are talented.)
He's got in the ballpark of 250 lines between his gerbil and human forms. Gerbil form is probably about 80%. Suggestions- you can try making yourself sound smaller and thus more gerbil-y, but it _might_ be better to read in a normal voice and pitch shift it up a few tones to accomplish a similar effect.
It would be great to hear a few example lines of some of your takes on Artie to see if you might be a fit. Here are some example lines:
Comrades. We’ve grabbed their attention with a show of force, but there has to be a better way than bloodshed!
Sure! Kill them all, for peace!
I was thinking “Tolerable concessions through dialog”.
ARTIE:: I’m not alive there, am I? Ah, little surprise. Gerbils only live about three years. I eat vegetarian, but I don’t expect to make it twenty years. It’s not the time one is allotted, but how it’s spent.
ARTIE:: Your primate mating rituals don’t make any sense. You apes all look the same to me. How do you even judge who is more attractive?
ARTIE (cynical):: Maybe he never GOT the instructions, because your plan requires one of you to be sane enough to remember a brief message.
ARTIE:: Anyone with the formula could make an army of mad genius. Or, an army of sane geniuses. The implications!
ARTIE HUMAN:: Now I’m sure we can work out some solution without violence.
