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, This particular project is to hire a voice actor to read my short story, NO FURTHER, 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: Everyone auditioning for the project should read the first page (300 words) of the script and submit that as a sample. Strong preference will be given to auditions that are read in-character, and/or include stock battle sounds in the background while the 5 paragraph is read.

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

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 narrator is a weary commander who knows he's fighting a war that can't be won, but is trying to keep hope alive for the sake of his men. The story should be read in character, and the narrator should sound weary, broken, but strong.
