Project Main Details

Casting Professional American English Voice Talent 
Our client is looking for an experienced male and female voice talent, American English, between the ages of 20-45, who is Core or non-union. While not required, experience in long-form narration (eg,audiobooks) is a plus. Most importantly, our client is looking for someone with an engaging and dynamic voice, someone not typically "corporate,” whose voice qualities would work well in the Enterprise space. I need someone who takes direction well and can perform and read prompts consistently over an extended period.
Our client is looking to get underway by February of next year and initially they would be recording three times a week, three hours per session, over a 3-4 month period. There would be ongoing maintenance and additional client-specific content recorded as needed throughout the year, over a multi-year period.

The client would record Sunnyvale, CA. A contract specifying rates/payment, exclusivity, work period, etc., would be drawn up. This is definitely a long-term relationship, and as such we'd require commensurate commitment and availability.

Please state your 1 hour rate for industrial projects below:

Script Details

Please read a sample of the script 
Here are the scripts (Phonetics, Dialogue, Dates):

1) Phonetics

Please read the below in an evenly paced, natural fashion, not overemphasizing too many words (unlike when reading news copy). Pay attention to large pitch fluctuations. Nice and even & natural.
. 0084 The price range is smaller than any of us expected.
. 0085 They asked if I wanted to come along on the barge trip.
. 0086 Amongst her friends she was considered beautiful.
. 0087 The smell of the freshly ground coffee never fails to entice me into the shop.
. 0088 I'm often perplexed by rapid advances in state of the art technology.
. 0089 John could lend him the latest draft of his work.
. 0090 From forty love the score was now deuce and the crowd grew tense.
. 0091 The Presbyterian minister managed to curb the drinking habits of the loitering youths.

2) Dialogues
Please read the below in a warm and helpful fashion. Read as if the system voice (denoted by “S” below) is an actual person in a conversation with the caller....and then take that and tone it down very slightly. With data info like dates, times, seat numbers, etc, introduce a tiny beat/pause between the sentence and the data (eg, “OK, that’sFlight 685 leaving at....”) Pay attention to large pitch fluctuations. Nice and even & natural. DON’T WORRY ABOUT RECORDING THE CALLER.
S: [audio logo] Swiftline Airways. Your Connection. Your Experience. Hi, Marcus, welcome to Swiftline Airways.
Are you calling about your flight today to San Francisco?
C: Yes.

S: Okay, that's Flight 685, leaving at 4:55pm.
It's on time and will board at Terminal B, Gate 97.
You can say Repeat, Check In, or something else.
C: Check In.
S: All right, are you checking any bags?
C: No.
S: And, you're in seat 22B. Would you like to change that?
C: No.
S: [Success earcon] Great, you're checked in.
I'll email the boarding pass to your mobile phone.
By the way, it's supposed to rain in San Francisco later today. So, you might want to pack an umbrella.
Now, is there anything else I can help you with today?..

2) Dates
What we’re looking for here is consistency in readback and inflection across ALL given data set categories—ie, medial infection dates, final inflection years, etc. Keep in mind that these items are going to be concatenated and need to fit perfectly within that framework. A good practice is to create a match or template file for each category and inflection, and have the talent use that to “calibrate” against as they read down the list.

_____________COMMA INFLECTION_______________
. 0001 [I heard you say] August 18th,
. 0002 [I heard you say] May 18th,
. 0003 [I heard you say] October 10th,
. 0004 [I heard you say] April 13th,
. 0005 [I heard you say] October 24th,

Thank you and good luck!
