I need an animation made of a prank call two men disguising their voices as two old ladies calling a restaurant.
Attached to this contest is the audio file you will need to animate to.
In the call, the two old ladies call a local Waffle House looking to find out about their food and specials. The women then get put on hold where they begin having a funny conversation with each other. They talk about how hungry they are, one of the ladies mentions eating her “flavored” fingernails to keep her from starving while on the phone. The ladies even discuss how the man they were speaking to on the phone reminds them of Ricky Ricardo from the show “I love Lucy” A second/new employee returns from putting the old ladies on hold, the ladies ask about the special at the restaurant where children eat for free. The old ladies then explain to the man that they are “children of God” and would like to know what time they can come in to eat. The conversation gets awkward as the restaurant employee on the phone tries to explain that only children can eat for free but the old ladies keep insisting that they are children of God so they should be able to eat for free. They even ask if they should bring their church membership papers or get their pastor on the phone to prove that they are children. The man then hangs up the phone and the old ladies then begin laughing as their original voices as two men to close out this animation.
Here are key notes for the animation:
- Be as creative as possible with the scenes.
- I prefer split screen between the old ladies and the restaurant employee whenever the employee talks on the phone.
- The old ladies are very old. They have a hard time hearing on the phone and they act in a funny manner with each other as they have been friends for a long time. Their bond should be very sweet and funny.
- The old ladies should be sitting next to each other, either sharing a phone or on speaker phone talking to the restaurant employee.
*It would be cool to have the two original men transform into the old ladies at the beginning when the prank begins (phone starts ringing) and transform back to the men when the prank is over (when restaurant employee hangs up).
I don’t want to reveal the identities of the two men / prank callers so they can be dark silhouettes or they can have disguised outfits (look at the "prankster [login to view URL]" attachment). Or it could be a close up of two mouths talking on a phone… Be creative on showing that this starts off as a prank call and ends the same way.
Attached are references and images of the old ladies and the audio file. Also, there is a "prankster [login to view URL]" that represents how both pranksters can look. They don't have to look exactly the same... The first speaker should look like the reference, the second one should look like another man but similar disguise. The transcript of the conversation is also attached.
Scenario: The two pranksters can start off at a radio station or somewhere that represents they are doing a prank / recording... then they transition into two old ladies that can be inside of a kitchen or home (old lady home setting)... the restaurant employee is inside of a restaurant, at the front desk or by the kitchen.
