Project Main Details

Authentic South African Talent for Corp Narration 
One of my major clients, one that produces instructional projects for various businesses worldwide, is asking me to track down talent with authentic accents, able to perform narration for hour-long narration projects. They’ve worked with overseas talent before, but they’d like some US-based talent, to better facilitate turnaround time.

Ideally, these would be native Irish, UK, Australian, and South African talents who now reside in the United States (or similar time zone). Talent would record in own studio, unedited master tracks in 15-to-20 minute chunks. Talent would upload tracks to my FTP server within 36 hours of receiving the script.

At least one pickup session would be necessary, for client edits or corrections, a week or two after initial recording.

As far as the read goes, the client is looking for friendly, knowledgeable, and conversational, as if you were tutoring the individual taking the course.

This project is currently in a tentative phase, exploring talent interest and pricing, so there is not a time frame at this time. Thank you for your interest in the project.

Script Details

Sample script provided for auditions:

Poka-yoke = Poh-kah YOH-kay
Poh as in no. YO as in no.

Mistake-proofing is a fundamental part of the Lean philosophy. The second main waste elimination tool is known as poka-yoke, or mistake-proofing. This tool focuses on preventing mistakes before they happen by eliminating the opportunity for error, and detecting the potential for error in existing processes.
Everyday life abounds in poka-yoke devices such as the automatic shut-off on a kettle, or the spell-check on your computer.
In business, poka-yoke could include a part designed so it can't be used incorrectly, or a fail-safe cut-off mechanism in a risky procedure. For example, a filing cabinet could be designed so that opening one drawer locks all the rest, reducing the chance of tipping. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
