Project Main Details
Tones that work for us would also work for National Geographic, Discovery Channel, NPR and BBC documentaries & reportage. VOs will be selected for particular articles based on ability to fluently handle non-English words—most often Arabic (usually Saudi Arabic; but at times others, from Morocco to Syria). The best voices will feel “cosmopolitan,” “multicultural,” “fusion,” i.e., based in any of US, UK or Canadian English, with light accents or inflections toward regions or languages covered in the article.
Mostly we need CLEAR, ATTRACTIVE, INTERESTING for a well-educated global audience with concentrations in Middle East, USA and Europe. Lengths of articles are 1000 to 4000 words; most include quoted material.
Finally, a comment about music, backgrounds and production: We are not sure how complicated it is to add music and other background audio, and we have access to an in-house studio that can polish our productions here at our offices. 2010-07-20 12:13:51 GMT 2010-08-13 17:00:00 (GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

***Please submit a sample in order to audition. I, Marble Maiden, script 1 ---
I have watched the sun rise over the Aegean world nearly 900,000 times, and I shall never tire of the joy. Rosy-fingered dawn creases the darkness and, with a firm handhold on the sky, pulls up the day from behind the hills to set my city aglow. Here and there, a silly young rooster thinks the sun has risen just to hear him crow, but I know the light has come to see me. It plays among my mighty columns and seeks out the museums of weathered art still hidden among my clothes. Hour by hour, sunshine shoves against shadow and makes my features move: Prancing horses come to life amid the figures of men and mythological monsters embroidered in stone about me. What the night had chilled becomes warm and alive, and my marble dazzles the Aegean day like no other monument ever made. Granted, I am not all that I once was, but what age has stolen, the sun still remembers, and I forgive. Perhaps a lady should never say so, but nothing ever built by human hands impresses me more than ... me. I am the temple of Athena, mistress of the Acropolis—the incomparable Parthenon.
I, Good Riddance, script 2 ---
I say there are different ways of looking at the world, and most of them are not from a 25-meter height, like that pompous obelisk in Rome. To hear him tell it, nothing matters but the high and mighty. Well, I never met a pharaoh or a king; I never had armies of slaves and such setting me up or knocking me down. I never went to the Circus and had a clown like Nero race around me in his chariot. So what? I may not look like much, but I did something a lot more important. Hear me out if you want to know how a scrap of everyday trash got rescued from a garbage heap to change the course of human history.
