Job Description

I am a recent graduate and I am looking to boost my portfolio by making additional short films. I am working on a short 1-2 minute animation for a competition aimed at getting people to try Poi (spinning fire/balls on chains).

I am making a mock-public information film, in the style of the 1940's-50's, similar to that of Harry Enfield's character Mr Chumney Warner. I am looking for a male voice actor to portray a public information film narrator from the 1940's. (Please see films at the UK national archives for examples). I can add the tinny effect myself but am looking for that well spoken English accent that was common on TV/radio for that era.

I am paying for this myself as a recently graduated student and as such my budget is limited.

Full script available below and also in attachment.


“Are you bored of the same humdrum routine? Do you yearn for something new and exciting in your life?”

“Presenting ‘the Home of Poi’s five reasons to learn the art of spinning and twirling!’”

“Number one. It’s a beautiful visual art.”
“Who needs Picasso and Van Gogh when you can perform the basic weaving moves?”

“Number Two. Tone your muscles.”
“Take a look at Joe here before he started practicing the butterfly. Look at him now.”

“Number Three. Improve your co-ordination.”
“Give it time, and you will become more aware of the space around your body.”
“Err, eventually.”

“Number Four. It’s a great alternative to dance.”
“Just turn the music up and let the rhythm take control”

“Number Five. Impress everyone.”
“That pretty girl you’ve had your eye on will be putty in your hands, when you can master those flower moves.”

“Well there you have it.”
“Now its up to you to get up and give it a go!”
