Project Main Details

Australia Discovering the World of Parrots 
I am an independent Videographer with a company in its infant stages. I spent 6 months in Australia on a project that was a dream of a lifetime. Filming Australia's amazing world of parrots. With over 50 species filmed my documentary already has gained a lot of excitement and interest among the birding community.

In the youtube demo I am the narrator and the narration is only a mockup and not designed to illustrate a quality voice-over. More specifically I am looking for a native Australian to do the narration.
I appreciate others who are not Australian showing interest in the project. However I will state up front that I am not looking for VO artists that can simply do a believable Australian accent. I am looking for an Aussie native.

The project will result in a documentary series of aproximately 4 one-hour segments. Currently it is about 85 percent complete (script and editing) and the end result should reach about 3.5 hours of narration.

Please keep in mind that as much as I desire to pay industry rates for the voice-over my company is too small to do so. The remuneration for the successful VO candidate will be modest.
However for a talented Australian who loves the bush and has always dreamed of gaining experience in narration and having narration as part of his showreel this should be a fantastic avenue.

The VO artist should be Australian male preferably over the age of 40. The type of voice should be clear and concise as often there is a background of nature sounds in the film. Best suited would be a clear educated Australian sound but with enough rich accent to illustrate to the viewer that the artist is from Australia.

Here are a couple of links that should help the artist to understand what I am looking for:

First a link to the preview of my documentary:

Also a link to the style of narration I prefer (performed by american narrator George Page)

So essentially the read should be serious but with enough voice inflection to keep the viewer interested.

Thanks very much for your interest folks

If this sounds like a project you would be interested in please contact me.
