Job Description

What I need done:
I need a voice actor or actress for a 1 hour children's audio CD.

What I already have versus what the voice talent will provide:
It would be good to work with someone who could provide a complete, finished hour (approx.) of finished audio that I could send to production. This would include some basic intro music for each of the 4 stories.

Other requirements that the voice talent will need to know:
The focus is on solid, simple storytelling for young children.
This is the first of a 50 titles that are planned for this series.

Timeframe for delivery:
At this point we're focused on finding the right fit and working with someone who would like to do other titles in this series.

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



THE ELEPHANT'S CHILD

IN the High and Far-Off Times the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He had only a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he couldn't pick up things with it. But there was one Elephant--a new Elephant--an Elephant's Child--who was full of 'satiable curtiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his 'satiable curtiosities. He asked his tall aunt, the Ostrich, why her tail-feathers grew just so, and his tall aunt the Ostrich spanked him with her hard, hard claw. He asked his tall uncle, the Giraffe, what made his skin spotty, and his tall uncle, the Giraffe, spanked him with his hard, hard hoof. And still he was full of 'satiable curtiosity! He asked his broad aunt, the Hippopotamus, why her eyes were red, and his broad aunt, the Hippopotamus, spanked him with her broad, broad hoof; and he asked his hairy uncle, the Baboon, why melons tasted just so, and his hairy uncle, the Baboon, spanked him with his hairy, hairy paw. And still he was full of 'satiable curtiosity! He asked questions about everything that he saw, or heard, or felt, or smelt, or touched, and all his uncles and his aunts spanked him. And still he was full of 'satiable curtiosity!
