Project Main Details
If you’ve watched or heard Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary, with its many first-person excerpts read aloud, you have a sense of the style of delivery: honest, conversational, not overly dramatic or showy but warm and full of emotion, paying attention to the language and where emphasis should fall in each sentence, letting the words breath, and making it sound as if the person speaking is across the room or even inside one’s head. Our uppermost goal is to make these voices from the past sound like real people talking to us today.
Because we have over 75 characters to cast for the media we are creating for this museum, we are bundling similar characters. This role comprises three characters: an anti-slavery Lutheran, a Union General, and a Union Army surgeon.
You must be able to record and deliver professional quality reads. A sample excerpt to record is below. The excerpts are short (most are in the range of 150-300 words), and depending on the number of lines, we are offering $75-150 per role.
If interested, please submit a sample by Wednesday Sept. 26. 2012-09-22 14:53:23 GMT 2012-09-26 14:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 2 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

"Slavery as it exists in the United States…is a sin…a violation of the inalienable rights of man."
Abner Doubleday (43-year-old General from New York):
"He sent me instructions to hold Seminary Hill at all hazards, if driven back."
"From behind the feeble barricade of rails these brave men stemmed the fierce tide which pressed upon them incessantly, and held the rebel lines at bay. Here, they made their final stand."
"Arrived at the cemetery, our lines, with those of the Eleventh Corps, were reformed under the direction of Major-General Howard. Our batteries were placed upon the summit of the hill… A portion of the troops was placed behind the hill in reserve. Major General Abner Doubleday, U.S. Army."
Surgeon Blakeslee (37-year-old Union Army surgeon from CT):
"In the consequence of the enemy taking all of my instruments, medicines, and assistants, I was unable to amputate his limb until the third day…. Surgeon Blakeslee."
