Job Description

We are seeking voice talent (both male and female voices) to collaborate with us on a series of on-line, e-learning courses marketed to the U.S. higher education market. We are seeking a voice quality to mimic the presence of a professor in a lecture hall. The voice should be friendly and conversational, yet authoritative.

The attached sample script represents a single topic. Courses are comprised typically of 15 such topics, and we envision recording at least 50 courses per year.

Course subject matter runs the gamut from liberal arts to the sciences to business to career specific (eg. policing and nursing).

Please send along a price quote per topic. The topic included for reference and audition purposes has approximately 1800 words.

Please find a portion of the script below for audition purposes. Full script available in attachment.

The Roaring 20s were an exciting time of art, music, literature, and sarcasm, especially in New York City where a popular group of intellectuals known as The Round Table ate lunch daily at the Hotel Algonquin. The group of sardonic wits included playwright George Kaufman, editor Frank Crowninshield, author Edna Ferber, drama critic George Jean Nathan, and the expert of the one-liner, Dorothy Parker. Parker summed up her generation when she said of herself, “Three be the things I shall have ‘til I die: Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.” The 20s were a party, and the general feeling of most Americans was one of hope and laughter. However, a “sock in the eye” was right around the corner with the 1929 stock market crash and the Great Depression that followed.

How much did your car cost? Well, in 1927, a Model T cost $290.00! After 15,007,003 were produced, the Model T or Tin Lizzie, was pulled down from the manufacturing line in 1927. Automobiles weren’t the only new form of transportation taking America by storm; the general feeling was that mass transportation via airplane would bridge the gap between America and other countries. To that end, hotel owner Raymond Orteig offered a $25,000 prize to any pilot who would fly nonstop from New York to Paris. Six men died in the attempt, before Charles Lindbergh finally completed the flight and won Mr. Orteig’s prize.
