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. Each role comprises 2-3 characters: more details are below in the sample script.
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. 28. 2012-09-24 11:34:10 GMT 2012-10-08 11:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 3 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

“Dear Wife, I take my pen in hand to write to you informing you of my whereabouts. We are at Point Lookout in the state of Maryland. There is twenty five thousand Rebels Prisoners here we have to guard. I had almost forgot this was Sunday. We had to go to hard work as soon as we got here, and have been working hard nearly ever since until about an hour ago, and I now sit down to write you a few lines.
"I am glad to inform you that I am well and hope those lines may find you well, my dear wife. I received both of your letters and it gave me great satisfaction to hear from you. Write as often as you can. All the boys from Gettysburg are well and send their respects to you and family. You have my best love always. Please answer as soon as you can. Your affectionate husband, Lloyd G. Watts.”
C. Van Rensselaer (An escaped slave from the south who became an anti-slavery activist in New York City):
“The destiny of several millions of human beings is…affected by the views of ministers and others who, like yourself, possess an extensive influence in the formation of public opinion.”
