Job Description

Greetings Gentlemen!

Thank you to everyone for your time! I wanted to let you all know that a selection has been made for this project, we really appreciate everyones effort & time.

My client is an author who is looking for a very special Voice Talent to record their Audiobook.

They would prefer to have 1 Talent provide all of the character reads and that of the Narrator.

There are 8 Main characters and a bunch of small parts.

We need you to read all 4 characters that have been included below for your audition! Please read both Genders even though this job posting is for Male Talent. Total word count estimated to be approximately 81,000 words for the entire story. #files to be determined once the job has been awarded.

Artistic Direction: There are two chapters from the book which present some challenges. Four of the main characters are here, and they experience mood changes in the midst which must be felt. Parts of both chapters are humorous, and parts are deeply emotional. We have included sample scripting from each of the characters to allow everyone to showcase their interpretation of each character.

Devil or Angel? -- Cody and Brandi
Who is Cody Musket - Ray, Whitney (Brandi's parents) and Brandi

Characters:
(1), Cody Muskett- Usually a loner, does not form relationships but can be surprisingly aggressive. He has a rather raspy voice, but the actor doesn't need to force it to the point of sounding unnatural.

(2), Brandi Barnes- Think Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts for this character. Sounds like the All-American Caucasian girl. Tries to be sure of herself but she is losing it in Cody's presence after the harrowing experience of being attacked just an hour before.

(3), Ray Barnes - Stately, presidential, yet warm and emotional. His daughter has been attacked just twelve hours ago. Think Morgan Freeman, Dennis Haysbert, James Earl Jones, Louis Gosset Jr (anyone who would fit into the category ...

(4), Whitney Barnes- Think Della Reese for this person. Whitney Barnes — Brandi’s mother. A slightly more robust Whitney Houston. Mothering, sarcastic, knows how to push Ray’s buttons.

Technical Requirements: We will be looking at having the files separated into chapters and there could be some music to add in as well.

Additional Information: We are looking for auditions with several characters so that we are sure to be respectful of everyone's time. We will require additional character reads to ensure that our selected talent is able to provide the reads and voices for all of the characters in the story.

Please note We may end up hiring 2 Voice Talents in total if we do not find a talent who can read both the male & female characters in the way our client the author hears the voices in his head.

We are looking forward to hearing your best character auditions... Please slate which characters script you are reading before you read their lines so we can keep track of everyone's auditions. Please read the sample script for each character with lines provided to have the best chance of being considered for this role.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to consider talent who do not read from the provided sample scripts.

You will have to follow the link beside each character's name to get their sample script and a small excerpt to help you understand the tonality and best way to deliver the audition.

Additional Information: This client has another book that is about to be finished... Please note. They will be looking to produce another audiobook early next year!!
