Character Descriptions and Notes (plus Storyline if applicable):
[SPOKESMAN] Male. Ethnically Ambiguous – Hispanic or Caucasian. 45-55. Salt & Pepper look – some gray or silver hair a major plus!! Should look professional, yet hip and fashionable – like an architect. Facial hair ok. Good looking, but slightly more everyday. He is an authoritative, but personable character. Setting the tone of the performance will be critical. He will be relaxed but reactive, subtle changes in his posture and temperament as he reacts and interacts with the animation as it changes around him.
