Job Description

Hello,

I am looking for a new voice for an on-going podcast reading of a scifi novel. Each of the ten scripts is approx. 500-1000 words (around 8,500 words in total).

This audition is for: Dingo The Wonder Dog.

UK English (neutral). Looking for Streetwise, confident young male voice. Character is young half-wolf breed who thinks he's a cartoon superhero... and so needs a definite charm to the delivery. Some adult-oriented words and phrases, so will need a mature reader.

The key I feel to nailing the character is to think cartoon adventure and that this is all being seen through the eyes of a young dog (not a puppy per se, more young of heart). I heard a podcast once where a dog was the central character that might help:

As for the podcast... this is for the second novel. The first one is almost all uploaded and can be found on iTunes or here:

Dingo is a major character in the second novel, but was a supporting one in the first book (check out the 23rdxenturyboy scenes for his first appearances).

There's also more about the novels at: www.trevillian.com

If you'd like any more info before sending a new take, I'm happy to help. jetx@aol.com
