Castle AcadiaVoice Actors Needed for Animation Project!

Castle Acadia is one of Calgary’s newest animation companies and has teamed up with Square Cat Entertainment to develop their newest animation! We are looking for talented actors to lend their voices for our most recent project, Noonright, written by Keena Herman, and directed by Chelsey Fawcett.

Synopsis: Blind orphan girl Midgi is desperate for an empathetic companion. In her distress she befriends a mysterious entity that promises her it will restore her vision if it can spirit her away to a place called ‘Shadow Town’. Once there, Midgi is faced with a fateful decision. Does she stay in this village inhabited by only shadowy ghouls where she is privileged with vision; or does she return to the real world to face her disability knowing at least she will be living among humans? What consequences will befall her despite the path she takes?
