Job Description

ABOUT ME: My name is Matthew Acheson and I am a member of the Horror Writers Association - with 12 short stories published to date. I love stories that make my heart race, chill my blood and coax the hairs on the back of my neck to stand at attention. I prefer strange plots with hairpin turns and protagonists whose trials leave them broken, damned, deranged. These stories remind us we are alive.

PROJECT SCOPE: I am commissioning voice actors to read all of my published short stories, so that I can make them available in audiobook format on my website, www.cryptichouse.com. This particular project is to hire a voice actor to read my short story, THE TURNING, and perform minor editing after the first draft is recorded as/if needed. If the project goes well, then there is an opportunity to record 11 other stories in coming weeks.

AUDITIONS: The part of narrator, Leonard, will need to be read fully in character and with a lot of energy. Auditions that aren't read in character won't be considered. Everyone auditioning for the project should read the first page (300 words) of the script and submit that as a sample.

AUDIENCE: Readers of horror, science fiction, and fantasy.

AUDIO FILE FORMAT
File Type: MP3
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
Stereo Mode/Channel: Joint Stereo

PROJECT DEADLINE: I want to complete this project by Saturday June 16th.

ARTISTIC DIRECTION: The entire story is a first person narration, with only a small amount of dialog interspersed throughout. The part of narrator, Leonard, will need to be read fully in character and with a lot of energy.


Complete script will be provided on award of job. Please note: Complete script will contain a meagre handful of profanities.
