Project Main Details
The challenge is the voice we need for these:
We are looking for a mid-Atlantic accent. The near perfect recipe is someone native Irish who's lived in the US for a number of years. We want a voice that will work natively in both the American and Irish markets (and ESL countries as well). I DON'T want a put-on 'Oirish' accent! If you're not Irish or haven't spent time there please do not put on an Irish accent thinking that will get you the work - it won't. We're more likely to hire someone with a clear native accent (American, Irish or British) than someone who attempts faux Irish. Mid-Atlantic British/American is the next best thing (but a slight regional British flavour is much better than Home Counties for this project).
A full-on RP or plummy English voice is no good to us.
Bear in mind that these are children's books aimed at children 4 to 10 in age. The voice needs to reflect this. A kindly, friendly reading without being condescending.
Pay for this is still being negotiated but we are aiming for around $100 per 10 to 15 minute book (the average size). It will probably scale a little bit for longer or shorter books.
We are looking for no more than 4 narrators across all the books and it's probable that one person could well end up with the bulk of the works. 2010-02-12 09:12:03 GMT 2010-02-19 20:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 1 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Third person script:
Dara lived near a railway bridge.
He loved to watch trains speed over the bridge.
He listened to the sound:
Dara had toy trains and tracks.
He pushed his trains over the bridge.
Uncle Joe told Dara all about the trains from long ago.
They were called steam trains.
First person script:
It was the middle of the holidays, and I was going over to Grandad’s house to help him paint his living-room.
When I got there, the room was already cleared out and there were sheets over the furniture. There was a bunch of old tins and tubes of paint sitting on the floor. ‘Where did you get those, Grandad?’ I asked.
‘They’ve been in the shed for ages, Lenny,’ Grandad said. ‘I bought some of this paint in the nineteen-sixties!’ The nineteen-sixties was years ago, and Grandad talked about that time a lot. I think it’s because he wasn’t bald back then.
