Project Main Details

Script reading for elearning course 
We offer online courses in Positive Psychology. Each course is done in video format with an accompanying workbook. Person hired would be reading from a script that could be 7000-9000 words in length. We then take the voice over and videographer adds images and music. Audience for these courses typically are professionals (teachers, nurses, business leaders) or individuals interested in personal development. We have produced 8 videos so far- using 3 previously hired voice providers (2 males, 1 female). For the next two videos we do, we'd like another female to round out the mix.

Script Details

Sample script below provided by the voice seeker for auditions.  
We begin today’s lesson with the words of one of history’s most influential philosophers, Confucius:
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

Resilience is indeed an art form. Some people are truly amazing in their ability, like those old Timex watches, to “take a licking and keep on ticking.” Others, however, can seemingly get derailed by the most minor irritants or pitfalls. In all, the ability to bounce back, to get up off the canvas, to persevere in spite of hardships is one of the most important psychological resources in the human catalogue. It is not only indispensable to our success in life, but it is fundamental to our overall well-being.
If we look back at some of our most cherished and lasting stories through time, we often find displays of remarkable resilience. Whether it be Odysseus’ 10 years of travails that he endured to make it back to his home in Ithaca or the orphaned Oliver Twist’s redemptive rise above a life of abuse and deprivation, we have long been inspired by stories of exceptional resilience. As well, we celebrate the iconic real-life stories of extraordinary individuals such as Helen Keller and Nelson Mandela who were able to transcend the most challenging hands that can be dealt by life. We often refer to these accounts as “triumphs of the human spirit.” The implication here is that it is a fundamental human capability to persevere in the face of distress and to emerge with one’s grace and dignity intact.
Let’s start now by considering the heart-wrenching story of a young Afghan girl on her way to school:
