and would like it to be a guitar themed cartoon. I was thinking about having a guitar shop, with a french owner, the stereotypical asian salesman (think Apu from simpsons) and several other characters, obviously comedy oriented.

any ideas?

EDIT: also, I'm serious. I need to do several animations for uni, and this would be part of the project.

You have to have the token metalheads who always get into arguements with the bluesmen about how BC Rich guitars are superior to Gibson ES-355.

India is apart of Asia. Assuming that Apu is Indian, I would agree he is Asian.

Make sure you include Guitar Heroes (15 year olds who can play Simple Plan and think they're awesome) getting pwned by your protagonist.

give the shop a really cheesy name and that's the name of your show. i imagine it to be like an animated version of Black Books xD what kind of humour are you going for?

not really, most asian salesmen around here remind me very much of apu, as there are very many asian 24 hour shops around here.

so much for my defense.


anyway, I'm also looking for voice actors. anyone interested should upload a sample of their voice to their profile and send me a PM.

Give us some characters and lines for examples, and have us read that, instead of just talking. IMO that would work better.

I agree with 7 Nation Army, however with Stariway he needs some random sex offender who hides behind two Marshall stacks and brutally rapes anyone who starts to play it... See free character!

IDEA!

take off Team America by having all the background music as Smoke on the Water, as stated previously played at different volumes and accuracy depending on the mood, and slow when sad parts etc.

actually maybe just do that for 1 episode, or only a few times, it might wear thin if you do it all the time.

It doesn't make sense to have a stereotypical Indian as a sales person in guitar store.

The people that work there should be either: A) Stoners/slackers who look like they just woke up 5 minutes ago B) Egotistical showoffs C) All of the above

If you need voice over work done, I can give it a shot.
