Project Main Details

Holiday Greetings 
We are looking for a new voice over talent. We have a lot of items that require voice over including our very advanced PBX phone system, music on hold, and other voice over needs for some of our client projects (to be used on websites).

Right now, to find the right person, the job we are offering is to record several "Office Closed for Holiday" greetings to play on various holidays. We do not like to use the standard "we are closed" message, we want each message to say (for example):

"Happy Holidays! Our office will be closed, however you may reach our emergency........etc.etc.etc."

We will write the scripts. I guess they will be around 30 seconds give or take. We will need scripts for the following holidays:

1. Christmas and New Years (christmas music in background would be really cool on this one!)
2. MLK Day
3. Memorial Day
4. 4th of July
5. Labor Day
6. Thanksgiving Day
7. Then one more for when we are out of town for trade show or conference.

Once we select the right talent, there will be a lot more work to follow as we want to revamp our entire PBX voiceovers. Very simple to update as each prompt allows us to upload a MP3 file. We are also ready for some new on-hold music and voice. We also produce Flash productions for our clients that require voiceover - we have been subbing the work out, but prefer to keep it in house for the new year.

Young man, Middle age man and Young/Middle age women are what we prefer - just no bubbles if a young female. Our target audience and most of our client base is VERY corporate - we dont want to be boring, so a nice middle ground - the tone of our existing voiceover on our PBX is actually great - we just need something different and that is why we are open (and wanting) some male voices. Being that the talent we go with will be a "regular" contact for us, costs are important.

I hope I gave enough info! :)

Script Details

NOTE: I am using a fake company name, but similar to our real name - feel free to edit copy if something doesnt roll nicely - it usually takes me time to write, edit, edit and edit before I send to talent. :) 
Sample for auditions:

"Thank you for calling "ABC Design & Consulting". Our offices are presently closed in observance of the Labor Day Holiday, however we will be open on the next business day. If you need immediate assistance, please visit or press 2 on your touch tone phone to leave a message for our emergency staff. Thanks again for calling and we hope you have a safe Holiday weekend." 
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.
