Project Main Details

Narrator for fictional podcast series for kids 
We are in production on ten episodes of a new fictional podcast series, and are looking for VO talent for the episode narration.

Stated budget of $1,000 is for all ten episodes. Potential for further episodes in the future.

Narrator is straightforward third-person narration like an audiobook, generic American accent, not in character. There are various characters who have dialogue throughout the series, who do need enough of a character voice to differentiate them from each other:

* 5 brothers and sisters (ages ranging 2-15). We don't need five individual character voices for them, but there should at least be an audible difference between male and female voices, so it's not confusing for the listener.
* Their young adult female babysitter (voice of authority)
* A grumpy gnome (He should have a pretty distinct voice. He's not mean, but he's been through a lot and is rather non-plussed about the whole affair.)

Script Details

custom demo required  
“Leave me alone.” Came the voice from beneath the gravel.

“I wish you'd come out,” said Ollie.

“Oh, well - if that's your wish,” the voice said, and the sand stirred and spun and scattered, and something green and yellow, and furry and fat came rolling out of the sand and gravel, and the sand fell off it, and it sat there yawning and rubbing the ends of its eyes with its hands. “I must have fallen asleep,” it said, stretching itself.

The children stood in a circle, looking at the creature they had found. It was worth looking at. Its eyes were on long tubes like a snail's eyes, and it could move them in and out like telescopes; it had ears like a bat's ears, and its little body was covered with thick, soft, green fur; its legs and arms were furry too, and it had hands and feet like a monkey's. “What on earth is it?” asked Charlotte. “Should we take it home?”

The thing turned its long eyes to look at her, and said, “Does she always talk nonsense, or is it only that foolish thing on her head that makes her silly?” It looked up at Charlotte's hat as it spoke.

“She doesn't mean to be silly,” Ollie said gently. “None of us does! Don't be frightened; we don't want to hurt you, you know.”

“Hurt ME!” it said. “ME frightened? Harrumph! Why, you talk as if I were no one in particular.” All its fur stood out like a cat's does when it’s going to fight.

“Well,” said Ollie, still kindly, “perhaps if we knew who you are, in particular, we could think of something to say that wouldn't make you upset.”

“You don't know?” it said. “Well, I knew the world had changed - but - well, really - do you mean to tell me seriously you don't know a Forest Gnome when you see one?” The Gnome squinted and said: “How very sunny it is - just like old times. Say, where do you get your Megatheriums from now?”

“What?” said the children all at once. The Forest Gnome went on.

“What do you have for breakfast?” the Gnome said impatiently, “and who gives it you?”

“Eggs and bacon, and cereal, and oatmeal and things. Mom gives it to us. What are Mega-what's-its-names?”
