Job Description

Hello,

We're looking for a 10 year old girl to voice Noonie. Please see the following:


TITLE: Noonie’s Masterpiece
TYPE: Online :60

Specs: This is a promotional video for use on our website. The book is aimed at young girls aged 8 – 12. The read should be a little melodramatic, but not sarcastic. The book is told from a 10 year old’s perspective, and she takes herself very seriously.

Character:
Noonie: 10 years old. Artistic, emotional, talented, and deeply (in her mind) misunderstood. Her artist mother died when she was in kindergarten, and while her archeologist father travels the world, she lives with her “tempory family” – aunt, uncle and younger male cousin. She’s impulsive, sassy, and speaks her mind.

Script

My name is Noonie Norton and I’m a brilliant artist. The only small problem is that I haven’t been discovered… yet.

My mom died when I was in Kindergarten. She wasn’t a sunny-yellow-cheery-pink kind of a mom. She was purple. Like me.

I live with my temporary family. For now. But my Dad’s going to leave his archeological site and come get me, pronto – I just have to win the Family Portrait Art Contest at Grover Cleveland Elementary School.


But I’m a little afraid to make a new painting. My temp family sure didn’t like the first one. Uncle Ralph didn’t like being a taco cowboy, Aunt Sylvia thought being a tooth head was wierd, and Cousin Junior thought my painting was very, very scary. They laughed so I tore it up like snow.
I wish Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe, and the other Famous Artists from my Masterpieces Book would step right out and help me. Because they were brilliant misunderstand artists too, just like me.
My Art teacher, Miss Lilly, she understands. She says I’m lucky to paint the way I do. She says that a brilliant artist never quits. But I’m not so sure, not so sure at all.
