[SHILLELLA] [FEMALE] [ACCENT: ANY BRITISH] [AGE: 16-30]
Shillella is a fairy of the magical Forbidden Forest. She is rude and rather wily, and proves quite the antagonist. She believes herself a free being, and is quick to anger, insults, and malice. Her voice should be quick and snappy. It can be ever so slightly high and thin (i.e. a ‘character’ voice is probably ok for this part, but should still be a realistic performance, not a cartoon voice). Any kind of British accent is fine, but feel free to try something less common (e.g. welsh, north-east, etc.)
It is important to note this is an acting part. A genuine, realistic, emotive performance is expected. The lines are dialogue and should be read in reaction to the other character’s dialogue. It is also important to record parts beyond the dialogue (such as gasps,grunts), and breaths in between lines.
The recording needs to be as dry as possible. Please do your best to block room reverberations or room tone (e.g. if it is clearly evident that the recording took place in a specific space, the recording cannot be used).
