Job Description

Background
=========
Islamic Legacy builds audio documentaries on historical topics of significance to an English-speaking audience of Muslims around the world. We are a not-for-profit venture run on donations and proceeds from public lecture presentations where these audio documentaries are sold to a captive audience. Islamic Legacy previously produced “The Conquest of Constantinople”. The voice on the audio documentary was sourced internally among Islamic Legacy volunteers.

Islamic Legacy is now seeking a professional voice to read the script of a new documentary entitled “The Crusades through Muslim Eyes”.

Audition
======
An audition script of a single page has been prepared featuring segments of various emotion (mysterious, motivational, tragic, etc.). Besides clarity and elocution, we require a narrator that can transition between various emotions.

Many of the words in the script are Arabic/Islamic. We don’t expect the narrator to be readily able to pronounce these words authentically. We will provide an audio recording of the correct pronunciation to the selected narrator (to mimic).

What we need
===========
We will provide a script of approximately 15,000 words. These will be divided into two parts to be featured on separate CDs. Almost the entire script will be read by the narrator. Only small segments will be outsourced to specialist voices.

We require the original recording of the narrator (high-quality, uncompressed audio). The final documentary will be CD-quality audio but we require the original to be recorded of a higher quality.

What we have
===========
At this stage we have a script. We will be applying sound effects to weave a soundscape around the narration.

Type of Voice Required
===================
We require a narrator voice, preferably mature or elderly. It is important that the accent be neutral (neither strongly American, British, etc.).

When we need it
=============
Approximately 2 weeks from when the narrator is selected and the final script is delivered.
