Job Description

We are creating a dialogue-driven, conversational presentation between a mentor/narrator voice that resides off screen and a new “student” avatar that we see onscreen. Mentor voice is an authoritative figure/adult that knows all of the answers; avatar is representation of average student (voice age appropriate for audience) that is eager to learn but overwhelmed. The mentor begins the interaction with the avatar by explaining things to orient the avatar to his/her new surroundings. As the presentation proceeds, we see avatar becoming more acquainted with things, showing the avatar’s growth from confused/overwhelmed to insightful/eager. Through the dialogue and interaction, the avatar becomes more at ease, confident, and eager to show independence. In the end we see the avatar transforming into a student. Presentation style will be an avatar on a white screen with rudimentary sketches acting as background images/props during dialogues, full screen images of learning management system during demonstrations, family photographs and B-roll video to help convey the student experience where appropriate.

Character Description: The avatar represents an average student. Avatar at first presents as bewildered, a bit apprehensive, not sure what to expect. The student is inquisitive, asking a lot of questions and engaging with the narrator. Student has a lot of ‘aha’ moments where you see the light bulb going on in her head. As the student gains understanding, you see and hear the excitement growing for the new school adventure to come. Towards the end, the student is turning the tide of the conversation and showing insight by answering questions or filling in the blanks before the narrator can share the information. At the end, we see a confident, eager student who seems excited for school to start.
Avatar is a female around 6th grade age (10-12). No accent is required and not ethnicity is implied. Avatar is positive attitude, playful, likes to joke, and very eager, gets excited at new things.
