I noticed there are no plug-ins for waiters asking to take someones order. I think that'd be great. Especially since a movie I plan to make calls for a waiter to come up and ask for someones order. If someone could make it, here are the specifications: The waiter has to be Chinese, male, medium build, 5' 8", 170 pounds, hair greasy and parted slightly to the left, brown eyes, kinda glazed over, his arms are both bare (t-shirt please) and has to have a tatoo with the CHinese symbol for Good Luck on it. He also has to have three piercings in his left ear, with a bar in one piercing near the bottom and connecting in one piercing near the top, the othe rpiercing can be typical stud style. His right ear only has one, and it has to be a Cross earring, not the same as the left stud. His mouth should be pretty small, with very few teeth showing, except for when he talks. If you could have him say: "May I help you?" "No, no chicken soup, we are out. A bus came in and ordered it all." "No." "That's not going to work." "Yes." "Ok, I'm calling the cops." Just lip sync it, I'll provide the voices. Also have the nose be broken and a bandage over it, because... well... don't want to give out that plot point... His chin should have a littlew stubble, with the rest of the facial hair being a simple 5 o-clock shadow. When he walks, he has to walk bow-legged, and kinda slow, so he looks dumb. His clothes are a green polo shirt with white stripes running vertically. Pants are regular baggy jeans that are faded and pretty baggy. Make him have blue boxers on too. On his shirt should be a button that says: Try out chicken soup! on his left side and on his right side a nametag that says: Hello I am Jim (Jim should be below the rest and looked like it was written). In his left pocket of his faded jeans put a pack of cigs, Malboros please, and a lighter. His other pocket has a mini-notebook and pencil for ordering. He has to take that out on his first line. I'm gonna need multiple camera angles too, so make him 3D and rotatable if you can.

Oh, mcmurphy, run while you can. you're in for it. Prepare for teh bitching of your lifetime with people telling you to get an actor to do it (which you should)

EDIT:
oh ya, and you can't have sound with plug-ins anyway.

And while you're at it, make a toaster with the toast popping out. I REALLY need a plugin like that! There's no way I can make it in real life. That's near impossible. Haha

You see, the thing is is that I want the waiter to speak, but I only want his mouth to move, I'll record the actual dialogue. And also, I changed his height from 5' 8" to 5' 7 1/2". Thanks.
