Job Description

This is for a personal animation project I have been working on for the past year. I'm a director at Nexus Productions in London, which has been nominated for Academy Awards in animation in the past, but this is a labor of love I've been doing in my spare time. I aim to have it completed by the end of the year before handing it over to a distributor. From there it will go into animation festivals around the world.

I put this under audiobook but the voice over is for a 10 minute animated adaptation of Hemmingway's The Old Man and the Sea. I'm looking for a voice over artist to be both the narrator and the main character. The character, the Old Man is a Cuban fisherman in his 50-60s. There are 3 to 4 Spanish words but a Latin accent is not essential. The offical audiobook was done by Donald Sutherland if that helps provide a reference. Although I think it was a bit too light in the reading.

The voice needs to be noble, aged/rough and have a weight to it. A lot rests on the voice as it needs to pull the audience through 10 minutes of animation.
