Job Description

This letter is from my Client, who happens to be a colleague of all of you in the Voice Over Business. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated!

To my fellow Actors,

I am trying to do something very special for my Mother and her 2 brothers for Christmas. I am hosting our family Christmas at my home this year for the very first time and I am fortunate enough that my 94 year old grandmother will be joining us. Unfortunately a couple of years ago my grandmother was stricken with Alzheimers and nowaday's she is failing. Her speech has been totally corrupted and she can't make the sentences come out of her mouth any longer. We expect that this probably will be her last Christmas with us. Growing up my grandmother was one tough cookie! She was a single Mom raising my Mother and her 2 brothers. I hate to say but she wasn't the most loving caring woman in the world, but the Alzheimers has made her one and although she is having a tough time I like her just the way she is now.

What I thought would be a wonderful gift to my Mother and her 2 brothers (my Uncles) is if I could have one of you very talented ladies read my script as if you were my Grandmother speaking to her children getting ready to read them, Twas the night before Christmas, so after our family dinner I could play it over my sound system right before we all get ready to open our gifts to each other. I know it would mean a lot to my Mother and my two Uncles.

I do not need you to do any editing to the recording just read it like a story teller in a senior womans voice. My grandmother as I mentioned is 94, about 4 foot tall, still has dark hair with some whisps of grey in it. Once your recording is done you can email me a mp3 file which I will add a little music and sfx to and I will be happy to provide you a copy for your records.

Thank you for your time and consideration. My family Christmas is this Saturday so I would need this done by Thursday 12/15/11 so I could put it together.

Thank You,
