Job Description

What I need done:

We need a voice over recorded for a 10-15 second intro to a 2-minute promotional video for a new virtual world/video game product seeking funding to be realized. This is work we're doing with a client of ours.

What I already have versus what the voice talent will provide:

We simply need the script read.

The spoken sample is extremely short, so competitive pricing is desired, please.

Other requirements that the voice talent will need to know:

This is for a pitch to a company we are seeking investment from so the voice over needs to be confident, refined and experienced. However, the character is meant to be a bit childish, a little silly, while remaining professional and to-the-point. The character should be an african american woman, and should pay homage to whoopi goldberg. She shouldn't sound too saucy, more like whoopi when she's being calm and wise. The character is literally mother earth... warm, welcoming, loving, and wise.

Specific expertise that I'm seeking:

We need to hire someone who can read well and is not intimidated by technical terms and industry jargon in the virtual worlds industry.

Timeframe for delivery:

We need the voice-over recorded and delivered within 2 days days of your being chosen for the job.

Please attempt to emulate this read of the script, except in the way the character is described here, as the wise african american, whoopi-like character... just use a similar tone as is read here: http://www.metaversatility.com/pubold/bmme_sample_read.wav

Sammy Sea (this is the character who takes us through the rest of the video, and we already have his voice part done)

Script sample (please read only the Big Mamma part, not Sammy sea.. record and send):

Big Mamma Earth: "What if we could spark a movement with children worldwide, toward a lasting environmental commitment?

I'm Big Mamma Earth. Welcome to my world of fun, adventure and learning. The Big Mamma Earth Experience!

Hey Sammy! Sammy, wake up!"

Sammy Sea (waking from slumber) :
"Oh, sorry I was taking a sea nap..

(to audience) Hi, fellow earthlings. My name is Sammy Sea. What’s that? You’ve never seen the Sea speak before? Well, I’m full of surprises -- there’s a lot right here on earth you haven’t seen yet!"


 


Note from Voices.com: It is recommended that you protect all your audition work by watermarking the submission or only recording a portion of the script provided by the client. This will render your audition file useless for anything other than reviewing your voice. Not sure what watermarking is? Please visit our FAQ section for more information.
