Job Description

We are looking for approximately six-to-eight minutes of narration for a documentary.

This documentary is based on several historical boats with ties to Lake Tahoe that were shown at last year’s Concours D’ Elegance. The voice over talent is needed to narrate the storyline transitions between the show and the history behind the boats.

We are looking for a female with a mature voice, this will be used to offset the number of male voices already in the program. The narration is a mix of news, history and anecdotal tales.

We are in need of the voice-over recorded and delivered before June 4th.
