Record your voice - Seeking talent for museum project
Documentary company seeks voice talent for a museum project that includes a significant amount of first person testimony from the Civil War era (gleaned from letters, diaries, news articles, etc.). If you�ve watched or heard Ken Burns� Civil War documentary, with its many first-person excerpts read aloud, you have a sense of the style of delivery: honest, conversational, not overly dramatic or showy but warm and full of emotion, paying attention to the language and where emphasis should fall in each sentence, letting the words breath, and making it sound as if the person speaking is across the room or even inside one�s head. Our uppermost goal is to make these voices from the past sound like real people talking to us today. Because we have over 75 characters to cast for the media we are creating for this museum, we are bundling similar characters. Each role comprises 2-3 characters: more details are below in the sample script. You must be able to record and deliver professional quality reads. A sample excerpt to record is below. The excerpts are short (most are in the range of 150-300 words), and depending on the number of lines, we are offering $75-150 per role.
