Job Description

Hi there.

So we've been tasked with a series of videos showcasing future technology based on what exists today. It's written as if it's the Year 2025 and it's an organization called Can Do which is fictional citizen advocate group that's advancing technology for humankind. It's somewhat kind of tongue in cheek. Imagine the speaker in a sort of pseudo political ad telling you the successes the company has had bringing tech to people. It's kind of like a future watch except it's being told in 2025. After the intro, two small stories are told which are essentially case studies based on what's actually possible given today's advances. Once you read the script you'll get the mild sauciness that's there.

Your voice is that of J, who is the friendly AI that's telling these stories. Your voice will be used with an animated AI robot.

We're not looking for stiff cliched 1960's robots here nor are we looking for something too cold and artificial like some of the emotionless AI characters you hear today. This character actually has character. Not entirely human but evoking some very human traits. I think the best guide to have is to look at some of the robot characters we've seen at Disney and Pixar. They're "robots" yes, but with spicy characteristics.

This is the first in a series of jobs. The first of four actually. We'll get the first underway and then talk about the rest at another time This series is actually being done for Amazon Web Services in Canada but they don't want the videos to directly reference them (that will happen when they click though at the end). The thoughts behind the videos is to align them with forward-thinking without directly naming their brand. Guilt by association so to speak.

Originally it was written with a male voice in mind but we're very open to hearing what a great female voice artist can do with this. We're open to being wowed.

Thanks for your time and your talent and have some fun with this. Looking forward to hearing the results.'
