Job Description

It is a presentation of an editorial project related to the Bible. The products are mainly targeted to children between 2 and 12 years of age. They are also targeted to parents.

We need a warm and deep voice, but not in an Hollywood or science fiction sense. The character of the voice must be firm, authoritative, fatherly, reassuring.

The script is subdivided into three parts:
1 – The introduction. The project is presented. It must be sensationalistic, but, at the same time express, warmth, serenity. Remember the target.
2 – A series of sentences on the Bible. Narrative voice
3 – A script the goes together with an animation of the main character. This is NOT a dialogue. Each sentence must be spoken separately. The parts in bold italics do NOT have to be spoken.

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

The Bible was written over a period spanning 1,500 years, in three languages, and by more than 30 people coming from different social backgrounds and countries.
These people wrote in different places and at different times: in the desert, in a palace, in prison, while travelling, in periods of peace and war, in times of profound joy and deep sadness.
Despite all this, the Bible is not a simple anthology, but a book which deals with hundreds of topics, still controversial today, but leading to one and harmonious conclusion: God is love!
The Bible has survived, alone, the effects of time, persecution and criticism.
There are at least 24,633 manuscripts related to just the New Testament or parts of it, while the most documented classic literature piece, Homer’s Iliad, counts but 643.
Voltaire, who died in 1778, said that within 100 years after his death, Christianity would become a thing of the past. Yet just 50 years after his death, the Bible Society of Geneva was using his printing press and his house to print and distribute Bibles.

According to information provided by Bible Societies, the Bible (as a whole or parts of it) has been translated into more than 2,300 languages and dialects.
