Seeking voice talent for a museum project ZDLTK53307180661X
Documentary company seeks voice talent for a museum project that includes a significant amount of first person testimony from the Civil War era (gleaned from letters, diaries, news articles, etc.).
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 Jeremiah Hoffman who was 21 years old when he fought at Gettysburg. A Pennsylvania native, he was about to graduate from college and go into law, but volunteered to fight instead. He ended up in a field hospital that was controlled by the Confederates during the fighting when he tells this story.
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.

During our first or second night in the building, a man who was so severely wounded that he could not walk, was compelled to cry out for water…. We heard a dragging shuffle. He was trying to come downstairs, and soon his voice told us that he was becoming delirious... His motions were slow, and his voice became each time more hollow and unearthly than before... We heard his voice grow less and less…and finally we had our former stillness. In the morning the man was found dead at the foot of the stairs. We had all lent him our voices, but not one in our room was able to go to his assistance…. Lt. Jeremiah Hoffman
