Speak up, boy!

Are you, or is someone you know, the perfect voice for Link or Zelda? Zeldamotion is looking for you!

The team that is creating the Triforce of the Gods Animated Series had originally intended on not using voice artists and instead showing the dialogue via text. However, due to heaps of feedback from fans wanting to hear their hero, Zeldamotion has decided to open a casting call.

Hit the jump to find out how to audition.

As their primary focus is completing the first episode, they are currently casting:

Link (character age 13-16)
Uncle (character age 35-55)
Zelda (character age 13-16)
Agahnim (character age 29-45)

To audition, they only ask that you record yourself saying a couple of lines from the trailer as the character you are auditioning for and then send that submission to mechanical.wattshop@gmail.com.

For those unfamiliar with the Triforce of the Gods Animated Series, Zeldamotion plans to adapt Akira Himekawa’s A Link to the Past manga into an episodic animated series with music by both their own studio and ZREO. You can view the gorgeous voice-less preview of the first four minutes of their first episode below.

    Well i would gladly audition for Zelda (even though i am unfrotunately only 12, going to be 13 very soon) But she hardly says anything in the trailer. Are we allowed to make up our own words and say them or something? Well, i have no idea how to record anyways, so i guess i should just forget it :/

    • I don't think the ages are listed to restrict the ages of people auditioning. They're just guidelines so that potential actors know how old their character should sound.

      I'd stick to just saying lines from the trailer with maybe a bit of improvisation. If you have a microphone, Audacity is a great program that you can use to record audio, save it as an mp3 and then email it to Zeldamotion.

      You should give it a shot!

        Ohh ok well i guess i should probobly ask my parents first even though i'm sure it'll end up liek this: "Hey mom, can i audition for a movie?" "WHAT?! NO!" "But they need someone who sounds like Zelda!" "NO!" Lol I'll give it a shot, and thanks for the suggestion

        • LoverOfLegend

          I stand corrected: "Hey can i ausition for a movie?" "Where do you have to go? California? Pff! No!" "It's not real! Its just voice acting!" "Yeah but you still have to go sit in a studio." "But…" "No!"

    I really hope the voice can be turned on or off via options or something. The thought of hearing some awful fandub-on-youtube voice would ruin it.

    • Stormy

      wow…jusy think of all the pressure you would put on the voice actors, especcially link's

    • Their site says they plan to release both a voiced and un-voiced version of the first episode at least.

    I don't like how slow it is.

  • linksliltri4ce

    do they only want one voice per voice actor? or can someone do several voices in an audition?

    • My guess is they would prefer you to send each character audition separately. But you might want to ask them directly. Their email is above in the story.

  • Kylehorrible

    Will the rest of the characters be open audition? Or is the open audition exclusively for the main roles?

    • My guess is all the characters will be open audition, but they're just focusing on finding their main characters for episode one right now.

      • Kylehorrible

        Ok thats good, because I am too old for Link and too young for Agahnim or Uncle. I would love nothing more to be a part of this.

        • Haha, I hear ya man. I'm in the same boat (KoRL reference avoided).

  • Jojo

    Wait, does Agahnim even have any lines to submit for?

  • Thareous33

    Man I would love to try out as Link…but maybe after E3. I am too psyched about that to focus on anything else. Tomorrow is going to be awesome!

    Hehe, be with y’all then!

  • Tonch

    Are.. are they releasing it like that?
    Is it still a work in progress, or is that what the final looks like?
    Because that's not really "animation", it's a polished animatic.

    Which, no offense to the team, would be… pretty disappointing.

      THANK YOU!!!!!!! Thats what I was trying to say when this trailer was first released and this Bus Driver kept insisting that "yes it was animation" and I was all "Um, no it's not! It's partly animated, yeah, but this is not a fully animated video, it's just a motion comic"

      I am so glad someone finally agreed with me. Yeah, this is an animatic, thats what it's called okay. I remember now. thank you.

  • Shaelyn

    huh…I dunno if I can pull off a young teen…I could try though!

      judging by the sigh you probably haven't matured yet, meaning you'll have a good voice for the thing

  • AJ

    Do the character ages dictate what age you should be to audition for the roles or what you should aim your voice to sound like for the character?
