Job Description

Hello!

Seeking US Female, 25-55, of New York origin for an interesting voice over assignment.

### OVERVIEW ###
In brief, we're looking for someone to emulate / impersonate a real public figure named Carolyn Porco. She has been integral to a number of NASA robotic space missions.

We're retelling the story of the Ground Tour from the 1970s thru 90s with a non profit film. Rather than use original recordings and interview sound bites, we're slightly rewording and re-recording the words of key people from the era using actors for a more cinematic final product.

### DESIRED DELIVERY & REFERENCES ###
Crucially, we're seeking a very natural delivery style. The sample script doesn't read well but can be spoken well, instead. It will be heard over visuals as if we're tuning in to the personal recollection of Carolyn. The words clearly describe a very personal, real moment for Carolyn and the read must have the appropriate weight, too.

The original interview we're "mining" can be heard here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVPBvIyLpW8 26:40 to 27:14.

The above sound bite may really help with delivery but note that we're not using the exact wording for reasons above.


### OUR MISSION ###
Our film and the usage of sound in this way is within NASA's guidelines and the film is in keeping with their overall spirit and mission. We are also proud to enjoy the support of a few original Voyager team members that we've spoken to and our film is being funded entirely out of pocket. Non profit in every sense. With that said please do quote what you think is right; talent is talent.
