Project Main Details

MW Family Fun 
I will need 4 non-union talent, all of whom will negotiate a "buy-out" price with us that we will pay up front, and then we will own the spot and be able to use it in different markets, over different cycles, without incurring further talent cost. The talent are a grandmother, grandfather, and 2 kids--a boy and a girl--maybe 7-12 age range. I think the boy should be the older of the two, based on the copy.

The grandparents should sound in their 60's or 70's--not ancient. They are active people who live in an active community, still go to the fair with their grandkids, etc. I would like seniors who actually sound that way, as opposed to young or middle-age people trying to do a "character" of an older experience is that this never sounds natural, and it's very important that these people sound natural, but if you have someone you think can do it well, by all means feel free to include them.

We are doing production for this radio spot in Baltimore, MD. We have the APT system of ISDN. We would like to have people who can either come in person to the session, or record via ISDN, as opposed to any of the other ways, because we would like to be able to direct them in real-time. Also, my gut instinct is that the grandfather and boy ought to be recorded at the same time, so they can hear each other, and maybe the grandmother and girl at the same time...but looking at the script again, i guess that's not essential--we just really want it to sound as natural as possible.

We are casting the announcer locally. I could also cast the kids locally if necessary, and maybe even the seniors, but i've had good luck previously on voice 123 and decided to post this for audition.
