Project Main Details
My name is David and I am a junior student of Motion Graphic Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. I am making a student project infogaphic animation on the benefits of mid-day naps. I am looking for a voice over to go behind the visuals that I will create and animate.
This work is not intended for commercial distribution and I do not plan to profit from this work directly. I will, however, use this work in my portfolio and on my work as self-promotion as well as showing it to companies as part of a portfolio for employment.
The work will be completed within the next month to 6 weeks. If the selected talent is interested, I would more than happy to provide a final copy of the animation.
In the project, I am looking for an upbeat voice that does not seem overbearing. I want the tempo to be a average speaking speed making sure to accentuate all pauses and stops.

For a long time napping has gotten a bad reputation. Nobody wants to be ‘asleep on the job’ or ‘caught napping.’ However, new research shows that midday naps benefit not only mental focus, but also general alertness, mood and creativity.
A 1-hour nap can improve alertness for up to 10hrs. Harvard studies also found that napping for as short as 45 minutes can improve learning capacity and memory.
This is all great news, but it doesn’t end there. Did you know that there was actually a proper way to nap?
When you’re asleep your body goes through a 5-phase cycle.
The first cycle, falling asleep, can vary from person to person, but even the mere onset of sleep is enough to trigger increased memory function.
After you fall asleep, the first 20-45 minutes of sleep are considered ‘light sleep’ which alone can help sharpen motor skills, elevate concentration and creativity and boost morale.
The next 45 minutes of sleep are considered low-wave and REM sleep during which the body regenerates and fixes damaged tissue. This is the truly recuperative sleep; however, waking from this sleep can cause grogginess and disorientation that can last up to 30 minutes!
After 90 minutes the body goes through another 20-30 minute period of light sleep and the cycle repeats itself.
So, napping up to 45 minutes or between 90 and 120 minutes can really have a great effect your entire body, increasing mental clarity, creativity and morale.
In fact, a British study found that the mere prospect of napping was enough to lower blood pressure.
So go ahead, catch that siesta, doze a little bit, you’ll thank yourself later.
