Job Description

I am looking for native speakers to do a voice over for an educational video for very small children (under the age of 3).
The goal of the video is to introduce children to the sounds of various languages.

Please find copyright free material that is a typical, traditional, historical choice for the mothers in your country.

I will need 10 children’s poems (10-30 seconds long) and 3 children’s songs (10-30 seconds long). If a poem or song is too long feel free to shorten it preserving the meaning as much as possible. The tone should be happy, upbeat, joyful, engaging. Additionally, there is a list of about 20 words which need to be read.

I will need a copyright letter from you which will give me the rights for the use of the recording .

About singing:
I do care about the tune/melody very much. If you are not sure that you can keep the tune/melody well, you don’t have to do the songs.

Direction: Please read poems or sing songs as if to a very small baby: tenderly, warmly, passionately, playfully.

Translation: Please provide me with a short, written translation in English of the poems or songs that you use (for example: “fish swims deep down to the bottom and meets the crab”). Also, please name your sound files in English, so I can easily find the translation for the file.

Recording: Please, do not manipulate audio settings too much when recording your voice. By that, I mean, record it flat without adding “base”, “high pitch” or “gain”. The sound, of course, should be clean, without any buzzing or static hiss.

Format: I would appreciate it if you could use uncompressed files in .WAV or .MP3 formats.

Method of payment: I can use “paypal” or send you a check. I will pay you a first installment of 50% before the job and the rest of the money after I receive a “copyright agreement” from you.

(Note from Voices.com: Full project details are provided for quoting purposes. Please submit an appropriate language demo that suit this project's requirements.)
