Job Description

We are looking to hire voice talent for "Adam," a Latino man in his early twenties.

I have attached a rough draft of the script so you can provide a quote. Minor words might change prior to script signoff, but the clip count should remain the same. Your tone should be friendly and conversational, relating to the learner like you're one professional talking to another.

We are looking for very quick turnaround on this project and are hoping to have everything recorded by the end of this week or early next week.

Please see our other postings on this project as well. We have a lot of characters and would consider hiring the same actor for more than one role, provided the voices are different.

SCRIPT



AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
Yeah, you look a little flustered—you working on something big?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I actually have it with me. Here it is—take a look for yourself.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I’m pretty sure metrics only matter to AOL as a whole. Why would they track individual progress—doesn’t it all go the same place anyway?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
A metrics hierarchy? That’s a—how should I say this—a unique way of looking at it. Look—I can see the point in measuring progress against our goals, but why do I have to know about it? I highly doubt my job affects AOL’s metrics, or even my department’s.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
Hey, I like those!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
Okay, so I’m on board with metrics. But I feel for you—you have to show how metrics supports AOL’s goals! How are you even going to begin doing that?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I like the sound of that.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I just think it’s cool that we have a concrete way of measuring our performance, and that it happens at every level. It almost sounds like we’re working together toward this greater goal.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
That sounds about right—if you’re not doing your job, or if I’m not doing my job, how can we achieve our goals?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
So if we’re all working together toward these greater goals of products and programming leadership and cost management, and metrics is a way of measuring our performance at every level, how exactly does that tie in to our goals of global expansion and creating a global advertising platform with Platform-A?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
Now I get it—we can use metrics to kind of chart our course into the global advertising market. And it seems like global expansion drives the global advertising platform—the greater audience we have, the greater potential we have for ad revenue.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I should get going, too. I’ve got some paper clips to recycle. Good luck with your presentation!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
So I understand we’re all here to discuss the new section of the TOL Channel. I know a lot of us have questions, but I thought we could start by taking a look at Programming.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
Good question—why don’t we see if our reporter guest knows? Care to give it a shot?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
You got it. Programmers are actually more like editors and the content—the pages and websites of our owned-and- operated sites—are like a magazine.

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I know we’ve been going on about Programming, but I think it deserves a mention that all of this is a collaborative effort, right guys?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
I bet you can answer that for her, can’t you?

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
With this open-sourcing stuff all I can say is that you guys are lucky we're working with DynaPub now. In the days of Big Bowl, this project would’ve shaped up a lot differently. And I don’t mean that in a good way!

AUDIO SCRIPT – ADAM:
That’s right. DynaPub’s power is going to make the difference in developing Web 2.0 content. Since DynaPub is so reliable and adaptable, we’ll be able to get our content to market faster. With how quickly things change, we have to be nimble to stay competitive. Believe me: you guys definitely won’t miss all the time Big Bowl consumed with its outages and hang-ups!
I know we haven’t talked specifically about the SOL project yet, but I hope this helps you understand some of what’s going on in Programming these days.
Remember to add a line in the newsletter about how much of a genius I am!
