Job Description

Hi,

Aside from my day job running my animated marketing video production company which some of you know (www.gisteo.com), I'm developing a project that basically marries audiobook style narration with graphic novel illustrations, music and sound effects. Essentially the final product is an illustrated film or motion comic.

You can view my side venture beta site at www.iclassics.tv as well as some of the initial work.

I've now signed a deal to license artwork from the illustrated classics series from a company that owns a whole collection.

One of the first productions I'm working on is "A Christmas Carol." The company had an audio file which I'll provide you with but the sound quality is less than optimal (voice actor is good but it was recorded years ago) so I'm looking to redo it from scratch.

I don't have a big budget since this is 100% self-funded but I do have two stories to start out with- "A Christmas Carol" and "Romeo and Juliet"- as well as many to follow. The finished product will get pretty good visibility and you'll get full credit for the narration of course. It will certainly be a nice portfolio piece for you to use on your website.

For "A Christmas Carol," you can view our initial rough mock up (we're still working on effects, position of speech bubbles etc.) of just a short section here:

https://vimeo.com/77213413

The audio track you hear there is what you'll be re-doing. Incidentally, if you're a sound designer and would like to discuss adding music/sound effects to this, I'm open to that to as I plan on hiring a musician separately. Any tracks we use would have to be royalty-free/clear of any copyright issues.

The chosen talent will receive a pdf of the entire illustrated classic book for this which will serve as your script to read. You'll also have a copy of the full existing audio which I believe serves as a good guideline.

I believe that a single narrator capable of doing different character voices will be able to do this (ie vs. hiring a team). I prefer the audiobook approach on this title in which a single reader takes us through the entire story.

I've placed a small section of the text below for audition reads. Please do the entire text here with the different character voices. This corresponds with the beginning of the short Vimeo link I provided above.

The finished product will be around 25 minutes in length.

Best,

Stephen
