Project Main Details

LeapSpanish Character Audition for Carlos 
This part is a main character of a Learn Spanish app for the iPad. The character is Colombian, but we need Neutral Spanish (bonus if you can do a HINT of a Colombian accent). This character is the main character's best friend, and will record for many of the dialog/conversations for 30-50 lessons. Most lessons will include a dialog with 1-2 short scenes (2-3 minutes each).

Please read the part of Carlos in the included script.

Carlos – Web programmer, John’s best friend

Carlos moved to Buenos Aires from Colombia because he got a job working for one of the newspapers’ web sites. He’s young and eager, like John, and they immediately struck up a friendship. Carlos is helping John as he learns Spanish, and the two have decided to put together a project (the iPad app) to help other people learn.
