Job Description

Hi, I am looking for a voice to record a voiceover for a short story.

You can find the Hungarian sample version of the app listed on iTunes at this URL: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/laci-es-az-oroszlan-lite-for/id896128805?l=hu&ls=1&mt=8

The ideal voice is male, with a mature voice.

The picture book is 46 pages in total, with a word count of 699.

Tommy and the Lion is the English title for the child story "Laci és az Oroszlán", written in 1961 by Veronika Marék, one of the most popular Hungarian children story writers.

Content: Tommy is frightened of the dark. When he sees a dog, he just runs away. How can such a timid little boy ever become a pilot? Only the lion can help Tommy to conquer his fears. But then the lion disappears...


The story is made for children between age 2-8.

Artistic Direction:

Tommy is a shy, neglected boy, sort of like a “disciple”, who gains emotional strength with the help of the lion by the end of the story.

The lion is Tommy’s sensei, who might seem like a cute animal by the first look, still he is a determinate, yet patient master to the child.

The voice of the story teller should be neutral, who just observes the evens.

You need not to overplay the differences though, subtle changes are enough, so that the younger kids are able to differentiate among the characters.

Special request:

Please record sentences separately and hold a short pause between sentences, so that we can edit them. Please record in WAV. file format. We are looking for a young adult/middle aged mature voice. Should you take the job, we will sign a vaiwer agreement on copyrights.

Thank you in advance, Anita
