Project Main Details
Interested talents should send a recording of the script below. We’re looking for someone with a neutral British accent, who sound like they really understand what they're reading.
Ideally the entire text should be recorded for the pitch and it should take about 1 minute 45 seconds at a gentle pace. If you would prefer to read just an excerpt, please use the first half.
The fee is £250. If the script changes substantially after the first commissioned recording we require one free retake included within the overall fee. If we require more than one retake involving substantial changes we will pay £50 per retake. The retakes we're referring to are regarding substantial changes to the script and not retakes on account of getting the intonation right, which should carry no extra charge.

The Minimum Income Standard is compiled following lots of conversations with the public.
It measures how much families need in order to afford a socially acceptable standard of living.
Pete and Joanne live in a council house in Loughborough with their two children.
Pete works full-time as a security guard.
Joanne works full-time at the local supermarket.
In 2008, Pete earned £16,000. While Joanne earned £12,000.
Back then, they only just met the Minimum Income Standard.
Over the past six years Pete and Joanne’s pay has risen by the average amount… 9 per cent.
Together, they now earn thirty and a half thousand pounds.
The recent rise in the income tax allowance means that they have each got an extra £500 per year in their pocket.
Sounds like a terrific improvement!
…or is it?
The problem for Pete and Joanne is that the cost of essential goods and services has also gone up during this period.
The cost of food has risen by 26%
Energy bills: 45%
Bus fares: 37%
and childcare: 42%
The support Pete and Joanne receive from the state has also gone down.
Their child benefit payments have been frozen, while their tax credits have been cut, leading to a loss for Pete and Joanne of £2,000 in total.
The net result of all of these changes is that the family is now £52 a week short of the Minimum Income Standard.
For Pete and Joanne’s family, the economic recovery will only be felt with renewed support from the state or if their earnings go up much, much quicker.
Only then will Pete and Joanne start to recover the ground they’ve lost in the past six years.
