Job Description

June 9- Client has hired talent and made deposit via SurePay

I need a voice over recorded for my travel documentary.

I have a music bed that occasionally runs under the video. All I need to do is sync the voice over up with the video and music bed.

This is a travelogue to Cambodia which contains both upbeat and depressing passages, and thus requires careful subtlety with its emotional range. The voice over needs to be friendly and mature, and must allow the documentary's visuals and content to speak for themselves.

I need a warm and engaging voice that doesn't come across as too intimidating, and that can naturally deliver sobering passages without sounding too grave.

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

At first glance, the capital of Cambodia bears a strong resemblance to many cities of Southeast Asia: heavy motorcycle traffic and bustling activity abound, amid an urban way of life that can be both hectic and laid back. Within the many markets found throughout the city, the industrious locals work tirelessly to make ends meet…just another day of business in Phnom Penh [pronounced “Pnom Pen”].

It can be difficult to imagine the different world that overtook this place in 1975. Under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge [pronounced “Kmer Rouge”], Cambodia plunged into one of the most horrific chapters of the 20th Century. Many lives were arbitrarily lost through starvation, overwork, and murder. Countless families were destroyed. Virtually every person in Cambodia old enough to remember the regime has a tragic story to tell.

Nowadays, despite foreign agreements and initiatives aiming to advance economic growth, it remains one of the poorer nations of the continent. Years of civil war and genocide have resulted in a tremendous gap in infrastructure, particularly in the countryside.

With many of these unsettling details in mind, our traveler Daniel has set out to explore the Cambodia of today…to pay his respects to the country’s tragic past, but also to witness the beauty of the land and the resiliency of its people.
