Seeing actors for voiceover

(Non-Union Only)

I'm getting started in animation. I would like to produce an animated movie; as a proof-of-concept I have some rough art I had an artist create for me. I've set these stills to music and sound effects.
I'd like to get a few actors to do some voiceovers for with the scene. This is a very short scene - 6/7 lines at most.
If I can get the emotion I want with the stills, the next step will be actually animating the scene, and then going forward with the rest of the movie.
