Round 3 - Theme: Disney

Share/Save/Bookmark


All members of BTVA are welcome to submit a performance for voice acting practice or just for fun! See below for details.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!
Up to this point in the contest you have been asked to provide lines for a single character. However, in real life auditions, voice actors are often asked to read for several different characters. For this reason, in Round 3 you will be providing lines for TWO different characters. Although the characters may have similar traits it will be your job to make each performance unique.
For this round's theme, we have gone to one of the top sources of real, engaging and emotional characters ... Disney! Many of the characters from Disney's animated movies each go through their own journey of self discovery and personal growth. So you'll need to look deep inside yourself and put a lot of heart into your performance.

Remember to read the character descriptions as well as look over the visual part of the character in order to find the voice that best 'fits' each individual character. At this stage of the competition we advise that you don't try to imitate any of the voice actors and try to come up with your own voice for the characters.

The lines once again will be slightly longer in length and provide even more opportunities to display emotions and your acting ability. Good luck, you're one step away from the Final Four!!

3 Finalists with the most votes will move onto Round 4.
1 Finalist from the remaining group will be selected by the Judges' to move on.
4 Finalists
will be eliminated.

Aladdin

Monologue 1: (Choice)
(After being told that a Genie is restricted to only granting three wishes, Aladdin devises a plan to trick the Genie into granting him a free wish.)
"Ah, Provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? (Looks at his monkey Abu) Huh. Some all-powerful Genie. Can't even bring people back from the dead. I don't know, Abu. He probably can't even get us out of this cave. Looks like we're gonna have to find a way outta here."


Monologue 2: (Choice)
(Having used one of his wishes to become a fake prince, Aladdin apologizes to the Genie that he can't use his final wish to set the Genie free, and instead will have to use the wish to get himself out of this big mess of a lie)
"I'm serious. Look, I'm sorry, I really am. But they wanna make me Sultan. No, they want to make Prince Ali Sultan. Without you, I'm just Aladdin. ... The only reason anyone thinks I'm worth anything is because of you. What if they find out I'm not really a prince? (Quietly) What if Jasmine finds out? I'll lose her. Genie, I can't keep this up on my own. I-I can't wish you free."

A young adult who is usually depicted between the ages of 17-21, Aladdin's life has been anything but easy. Almost adopting a 'Robin-Hood' esque, thief persona, he is often looked at by the locals and especially the nobility, as a 'street rat'. He is altogether clever, brave, and kind hearted but also not afraid to lie or bend the rules in order to survive. Like most Disney heroes, he is also a hopeless romantic!
Simba

Monologue 1: (Choice)
(Believing he is responsible for his father's death and not telling anyone, Simba has run away from home and now lives far away. After reuniting with his childhood friend Nala, they argue about why Simba refuses to return home to take his place as king)
"You know, you're starting to sound like my father. (Nala's response angers Simba) Listen, you think you can just show up and tell me how to live my life? You don't even know what I've been through! (Nala asks what it is but Simba's refuses to share his guilty secret) Forget it! (Simba walks off and paces back and forth) She's wrong. I can't go back. What would it prove, anyway? It won't change anything. You can't change the past. (He looks up at the stars, where he was once told the kings of the past reside) You said you'd always be there for me! But you're not. And it's because of me. It's my fault. It's my fault. (He bows his head, choking back tears)"


Monologue 2: (Choice)
(Simba has finally returned home to take his place as king, only to find his home is now a wasteland, thanks to his uncle Scar's terrible ruling. Simba has also just witnessed Scar striking his mother to the ground)
"Give me one good reason why I shouldn't rip you apart. (Simba calms himself) The choice is yours, Scar. Either step down or fight. (Scar reminds Simba that he's 'responsible' for his father's death) That's not gonna work, Scar. I've put it behind me. (Scar has made Simba confess his secret) No ... No. I'm not a murderer. (Scar gradually backs Simba up Pride Rock where Simba eventually slips over the edge and is clinging for his life. In a moment of arrogance, Scar confesses that HE is the one who killed Simba's father) NoooooOOOO! Murderer! (Quietly, severely) Tell them the truth. (Simba starts to choke Scar.) So they can hear you. (Scar runs off but Simba corners him) Murderer ... You don't deserve to live. (Scar blames the death of his father on the hyenas) Why should I believe you? Everything you ever told me was a lie. (Scar asks Simba if he'd really kill his own family) No, Scar. I'm not like you ... (Scar asks Simba what he wants him to do) Run. Run away, Scar. And never return."

Simba is a cocky and adventurous character by nature but is forced to mature a great deal in a very short time span over the course of the Lion King. He has a lot of baggage from his past stemming from his father's death at an early age and the guilt that came along with the incident. After much prodding by various characters and situations though, he show a great deal or bravery and power as he takes his rightful king as leader and rights the wrongs that have been plaguing him most of his life.
Princess Ariel

Monologue 1: (Choice)
(Ariel is about to explore an underwater shipwreck with her friend Flounder. She then see's a ship sailing on the water surface and investigates.)
"You're not getting cold fins now, are you Flounder? All right. I'm going inside. You can just stay here and - watch for sharks. (Implying that her friend is a coward) Flounder, don't be such a Guppy! (After some exploring, Ariel sees a sailing ship) Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Have you ever seen anything so wonderful in your entire life? (She then see's a handsome man on the ship) I've never seen a human this close before. Oh... he's very handsome, isn't he? (Her friend thinks she's talking about a dog) No, not that one. The one playing the snarfblatt. (Soon, a storm hits the ship and the man washed into the sea. Ariel saves him and takes him to the the shoreline) Is he dead? ... No look, he's breathing. He's so beautiful."


Monologue 2: (Choice)
(Ariel spent so much time above the surface of the water, a place that her father (the king) forbids her to go, she has forgotten about an important royal concert)
"Daddy, I'm sorry, I just forgot, I (Ariel is cut off from her father who finds out she has just come from the surface) Nothing - happened ... (Her father states that humans could've see her) Daddy, they're not barbarians! I'm sixteen years old. I'm not a child anymore. (Her father cuts her off again) But if you would just listen (again, cut off. Ariel leaves, crying. She goes back to her cave of items from the surface she has collected over time) If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does. I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad."

Ariel is a mermaid and lives in an underworld city called Atlantica, which is ruled by her father King Triton. She has a big fascination with the world above the water, where the humans live and often explores to find human artifacts that she keeps in a secret cave. Ariel can be quite rebellious, and her curiosity causes her to disobey her father's orders about staying away from the human world and being so preoccupied, she forgets her responsibilities of being in a royal family.
Megara

Monologue 1: (Choice)
(Hercules fights off a centaur, who has been harassing Megara. For reference, Shorty is Hercules' mentor Phil, and failed womanizer)
"My friends call me Meg. At least they would if I had any friends. So did they give you a name along with all those rippling pectorals? (Hercules responds with his name) Herc ... Huh. I think I prefer Wonderboy. (Hercules asks who the centaur is) The pinhead with hooves? Well, you know how men are. They think that 'no' means 'yes' and 'get lost' means 'take me, I'm yours'. Don't worry, Shorty here can explain it to ya later. (Phil growls at her) Well, thanks for everything, Herc. It's been a real slice."


Monologue 2: (Choice)
(Feeling guilty after tricking Hercules into giving away his god-like strength, Megara searches for Hercules mentor Phil, who she hopes can help him. Megara enlists the help of Hercules' flying horse, Pegasus)
"Hercules is in trouble. We gotta find Phil, he's the only one who can talk some sense into him. (After searching, they track down Phil) Phil! Phil, Hercules needs your help! He won't listen to me. (Phil tells her straight to her face it's because she betrayed him) Look, I know what I did was wrong, but this isn't about me, it's about him. If you don't help him now, Phil, he'll die."

Megara is an independant woman with a quick wit and isn't afraid to stand up for herself, especially in front of men. In fact, her opinion of men in general is very low, mainly due to her bad experiences with them in the past. This is also a reason for her cynicism and she uses her sexuality to persuade men to do her bidding. A lot of this comes as a result of Megara selling her soul to Hades, lord of the dead, to try and save her boyfriend's life, who later dumps her for another woman. But then she meets Hercules, who she at first dismisses as a "typical" guy, but after spending a substantial amount of time with him and learning he genuinely cares for her, Megara lets down her walls and learns to love again.

Emotion poured beautifully into both characters. Pacing and word emphasis was very original (I've watched both movies many times). Only nitpick was while Simba's voice was indeed a little deeper, overall I felt the two voices could've been more distinct.

Top Simba voice for me. First, loved the way you delivered “You can’t change the past” especially the inflection used on the word ‘past’. Second the emotion & level of angst you delivered with “You said you’d always be there for me.” Awesome job man!

I like the emotions used here. Great diversity in the character tones and inflections.

Great emotive acting, especially the anger in Simba. You created two very distinct characters with your voices. However, it sounded like you were very close to the microphone and both monologues relayed a handful of vocal breaths/puffs.

OptimusSolo

What I liked most about your performance was the contrast you gave us between the two characters. Loved the deep tone you gave to Simba. Overall the Simba lines were real solid. Aladdin was good but didn’t quite fit as well as others versions.

Some of the Aladdin lines were a little too fast. I got the emotion and inflections in them. I loved Simba the best here. Great feeling!

Your Aladdin was perfect. Sounded lighthearted and had no problem tricking the Genie. Good depth in Simba's voice and the performance really grabbed me except the "You said you'd always be there for me" part which sadly I found poorly acted.

Agrees (10)  Disagrees (3)

Loved the cockiness you put into your Aladdin voice, really fit the character. I had you as the top voice for Aladdin. Delivered real well with Simba but I feel Stinger edged you just a tad with him on the emotional end. Once again real solid man!

Flawless natural acting as always. Both characters and voices were so different and came alive. You captured Ariel's fun and youthful nature as well as her reluctant curiosity about the human world. Meg's attitude and lack of respect for men was perfect.

Have had you as one of my top two female contestants every round so far but there were moments this round in which the lines just didn’t quite connect for me. The first part of your Ariel voice being one where it almost sounded like you were reading.

I like the young and innocence in Ariel. Meg was had nice takes in there too. I liked the delivery.

Ariel's teen angst with her father was delivered beautifully and the voice was a great fit. The acting for Meg was solid but lacked some oomph and attitude (which you had a lot of with Videl in the last round) and her voice could've sounded older.

Agrees (5)  Disagrees (1)

Excellent job with Meg, you really nailed that character with the exact right amount of attitude and confidence. Also like the contrast between your Meg & Ariel voices. If it hadn’t been for Wolfwings I would have put you as the best for Ariel too!

Wasn't a fan of the take on Meg. Something there wasn't fitting although the voice was closer. Ariel I liked much better. It seemed to be the right amount of character here.

Good solid acting but I felt it was flat in a number of places and needed deeper emotion. I can't put my finger on it but to me, the voice for Aladdin just didn't fit the character. Also, there could've more distinction between the two voices.

Agrees (8)  Disagrees (0)
OptimusSolo

Appreciate the effort you put into this round but feel the emotion and believability was just missing in this round. You were so solid last round so maybe it elevated my expectations too much but this felt a bit more like reading this round unfortunately.

I felt some good feeling in Aladdin but some of the emotion was lacking. Simba was much better here. I could see this being in a film.

Perfect. No other way to describe it. You poured life into two very distinct characters. The deep emotionally driven acting in Ariel was incredibly powerful. You captured all of Meg's characteristics effortlessly and love I your take on "real slice".

OptimusSolo

Man the competition is tough this round! You ladies were all so close to each other in many ways. Just like Jilly, I think you really nailed the attitude with Meg perfectly. Your Ariel was not bad but I liked a couple of the others slightly more with her.

I got the snooty take on Meg here. Made me think of the film. I got some nice emotional takes here. I could hear some good acting.

First, this is your best acting out of all rounds. Your Ariel was near perfect, capturing all her traits with such innocence. The deeper voice for Meg really helped distinguish her, and you delivered her guilt and love for Hercules really well.

Agrees (7)  Disagrees (1)
OptimusSolo

Wow, for a second I thought you somehow cheated & used Ariel’s actual voice somehow, spot on there, definitely the top Ariel voice this round. There really was nothing wrong with your Meg performance it just didn’t wow me like some of the others Megs.

Agrees (7)  Disagrees (2)
SCP21

I think this Ariel is the closest and most spot on in my mind. I loved all the takes here. Meg was great as well.
