Job Description

RESUBMIT TO DRUCCI@GMAIL.COM with these updates:
* UPDATE 3-26-11--Thank you for your submissions so far! We like several of the voices we heard but we'd like you to RESUBMIT auditions TRYING TO AVOID NARRATOR/ANNOUNCER VOICE STYLING and go towards AS INFORMAL AND CASUAL as you can make it.... more like an on-camera actor acting the lines (does this make sense?)

We need a casual and friendly voice that sounds like it really believes in the words it's reading and We don’t want you to sound formal or forced in your reading style--it should sound as real, casual and friendly. (consider this for volume, tone and pacing should be lilting and not necessarily fluid, more like a real conversation)

Updating age range to 30's or 40's sounding. Young or old sounding voices are not preferred

Sounds like…Thoughtful, storyteller, friendly, warm, casual, REAL PERSON voice (not announcer voice), BE AS INFORMAL/CASUAL AS POSSIBLE.

PLEASE RESUBMIT AUDITIONS IF YOU CAN.
*

Hello friends,

We are looking for a neutral and thoughtful male voice, in documentary- or storyteller-narration style for some community house profiles we will be recording next week. We're looking for a warm and thoughtful voice that sounds like it really believes in the words it's reading--this is not supposed to sound commercial or persuasive, too much acting is not going to make this happen, it needs to sound as loose and conversational as possible given the copy. The script describes the work a community house is doing to improve the lives of the people in the surrounding community, and is supposed to motivate people to vote online for this community house. The images in the video will show the activities described in the copy and the people they help.

We would love it if you could audition a part or all of the script attached, or provide examples of similar work you have done.

These 5 scripts will require a male voice and each script will pay $250 each (our hard budget limit, a total of $1250 for 5 scripts) recorded and finshed and delivered, with a 2-year buyout, all inclusive. My CD and Director would like to be able to listen-in on the recording session via phone, if possible, for pacing, and each script will have a specific time we need to hit to match the edited video. You will need to be able to record at your studio with professional microphone and deliver the approved takes of each script with the highest quality.

Here are some youtube examples of other projects that don't have narrators, but will show a similar style of video to what we're creating.
