Project Main Details

IYP Student Book 1 demo 
We are looking to get 3 short samples of character dialogue, read from scripts. Once these have been approved, we will send you the scripts for the first 2 complete projects so that you can supply us with a quotation. There are 6 projects in this series. We have included example scripts below this email, and have links to some audio examples that represent the style we are after.

The project is targeted at Elementary aged school children learning American English in Asian countries. The scripts go through a variety of real life situations using character dialogue (often just one or two words per line) and use repetition for learning. Clarity of speech is the priority. Acting and the characters personalities are secondary, but we also want high quality and expressive content. Our client is an education publisher, and they will be listening to pronunciation of words over and above anything else. Characters are required and may need to be recalled for the length of project. Just voices are required. eg. We will be editing and compiling all voice tracks and adding sound effects and music to suit. We would prefer the audio to be in AIFF or WAV format, and available for download from your FTP servers or uploaded to our FTP server.

Is this the kind of project you would be interested in? Do you have the resources to do American characters?
Kids are required, 3 Girl parts (approx 8-9 years), 3 Boy parts (approx 8-9 years) 1 Adult Female, 1 Adult Male and 1 Narrator (M or F)

At this stage we are just wanting three samples of the individual scenes/tracks, but if your sample and consequent quote is successful, we will then need about 100 individual short scenes/tracks by mid February to complete project 1 & 2. The entire project has approx 600 scenes/tracks to be recorded, so there is a lot of potential work. However, we are tendering this out to other companies so price, as always, is a consideration.

Sample 1: Audio file '2-02 Unit 5 Let's Talk' is an example of the voice style (sound fx and music will be added by us) I am after for Sample 1.

Sample 2: Audio file '2-35 Practice The Q & A Practice' is an example of the voice style I am after for Sample 2.

Sample 3: Audio file 'Voiceover Demo Rhythm1 All' is an example of the voice style in the chanted/song version. This file has my college's voice put to a recorded backing beat as a demonstration for the vocal style I am after. Please reproduce the chant and melody (you will have to excuse the Aussie accent!). There is another file called 'Voiceover Demo Rhythm1 Backing' that doesn't have my voice on it, so that your talent can perform to just the backing beat. However, I will need the finished audio with only voices, and not with the backing beat included on your final audio.
