Job Description

What I need done:

I need a voice over recorded for my animated children's storybook. The story is about 12 cute caterpillars who hatch from eggs and transform into butterflies.

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

I have a bright, neutral, springtime music track that plays in the background.

Other requirements that the voice talent will need to know:

The voice over needs to sound fatherly or grandfatherly. This is a story for young children, ages 3-6. Think of how you would read a picture book to your preschooler, a warm-hearted bedtime story. Make him or her giggle at the silly parts, make the suspenseful parts dramatic, etc.

If the baby caterpillars are talking, make your voice sound higher; if the bird who wants to eat them is speaking, lower your voice.

Specific expertise that I'm seeking:

I need to hire someone who can read well and is not intimidated by a few scientific terms sprinkled into the script ("chrysalis", "pupae").

Also, the lines in each 2-line verse rhyme, and there are some parts that are easy to stumble over ("they wiggled and wriggled", "clicked, ticked, and clacked").

About the script:

The word count of the script is 338. Each 2-line verse corresponds to a page in the book. There is also a 1-line intro and a 1- line end page.

Timeframe for delivery:

I'll need the voice-over recorded and delivered to me within 5 days of the response deadline.

Note from 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.
