Project Main Details

Project London 
I have a large number of articles about tourist sites in London which will form a comprehensive audio guide. The final project will have about 25 hours of audio content and I am looking for one or more voiceover artists to help me complete this work.

I want to receive "ready-to-go" audio files so this is a project ideal for an artist with a home studio. A web interface will provide you with the text that needs to be voiced, the filename required for the resultant audio and a check box once complete to track progress. I am flexible as to how many hours are worked and when. The guide is aimed at both tourists and Londoners keen to know more about their city and will be in an informal, chatty style aimed at a young, tech savvy demographic.

If interested please get back to me with an indication of your hourly rate and the amount of time you could commit during the month of March. Included below is a sample of the text for one article - it is an obvious one for London, Buckingham Palace, but there will also be more quirky locations!

Script Details

The Official residence of the British monarch since 1837 and one of London's grandest buildings, Buckingham Palace is situated on the Mall, an area next to St James' Park and close to Trafalgar Square. It is both a major tourist attraction for overseas visitors and a a rallying point for the British people at times of triumph or disaster. The core of the building was created in 1703 as a large townhouse for the Duke of Buckingham. It was acquired by King George III in 1761. It was enlarged and added-to over the next 75 years and became the official residence of the monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837. The palace is divided into state rooms, used by Queen Elixabeth for official business and state entertaining, and private rooms, which are the resident rooms of the Queen and royal family. The state rooms are open to the public during August and September. Around 450 full-time staff work on site. The palace enjoys the largest private garden in London. Originally laid out by famed Victorian landscape gardener Capability Brown and redesigned later by William Townsend of kew Gardens and John Nash, the gardens feature an artificial lake which is supplied by water from the Serpentine, Hyde Park's river. The palace has a rich history of entertainments and sociel functions. During the Victorian era it played host to some of the world's great musicians, with Felix Mendelssohnand Johan Strauss II amongst some of the greats to have performed there. Strauss' Alice Polka was first performed in thw palace in 1849 in honour of Princess Alice, the Queen's daughter. Today more than 50,000 people visit the palace each year as guests to banquets, lunches, dinners and the royal garden parties. The forecourt of the palace is used for the Changing of the Guard, a major ceremony and internationall-famed tourist attraction. The ceremony occurs every day during the summer months and every other day during the winter. Specific rooms are used for the different functions that take place in the palace. Investitures (the conferring titles, including knighthoods) and other awards ceremonies take place in the palace's Victorian Ballroom. Royal christenings take place in the Music Room since the royal chapel was bombed in World War II. The Queen's first three children were all baptised here. In all the palace contains 19 state rooms, 52 principal bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices, and 78 bathrooms. The queen lives in a suite of private rooms in the North Wing.
