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.
This role is for Lydia Ziegler who was 13 years old and living in Gettysburg when the war came to her front doorstep (literally). She had to grow up quickly as she helped nurse the wounded. We want her to sound saddened but matter-of-fact (people were better acquainted with death in this era).
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 Friday Sept. 21. 2012-09-17 14:42:44 GMT 2012-09-21 09:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 5 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

This role is for Lydia Ziegler who was 13 years old and living in Gettysburg when the war came to her front doorstep (literally). She had to grow up quickly as she helped nurse the wounded. We want her to sound saddened but matter-of-fact (people were better acquainted with death in this era). The dying and dead were all around us… It was a ghastly sight to see some of the men lying in pools of blood on the bare floor where they had been placed on the first and second days of the fight, many of them having received no care what ever. Nurses and doctors were in demand everywhere, as were hospital supplies… Many a poor fellow died within the first ten days after the battle for want of care and nourishing food…. Nights and days alike were spent in trying to alleviate the suffering of the wounded and dying. Lydia Ziegler
