Project Main Details

Technical instructional video narration 
We're seeking a potential long-term relationship with a V.O./narrator for a series of corporate technical instructional videos. Some of this material may seem a little arcane, which is why it's important that we get a voice that can make it interesting, enlightening--but not FM-radio-DJ-esque, necessarily--and hold up for 20+ minutes of that.

Your audience will be chemical and industrial engineering students and engineers, so they don't want their hair blown back, they just want to be enlightened by a wise and intelligent voice.

And keeping people awake is always appreciated too. :)

So that's your mission...

Please see the attached script to get a sense of the flavor of the projects. If anyone would like to submit a audition for part or all of this, we'd certainly welcome it. Of course, I'll be happy to consider any and all demo reels as well, so no obligation to do so.

It would probably be helpful to my clients to 'visualize' what the project will sound like, and they'll have final approval on voice talent. If you choose to read only part of it, please read the final two paragraphs below the dashed line--since this is gives a sense of the techy-jargony stuff that you'll be wading into.

If you want to go ahead and read the preceding three paragraphs, well, the more of you we hear and can choose from, the better--if that makes sense?

Thanks in advance,

Script Details

custom demo required 
Different chemicals have different boiling points, or volatilities. The process of distillation uses those differences to separate and purify chemicals. Refineries and chemical plants employ distillation columns to produce hundreds of products. It has been estimated that industry employs 100,000 columns worldwide.

The primary focus of this video is structured packing – but – a complete understanding of structured packing begins with distillation fundamentals.

Computer programs are employed to simulate distillation columns. Most such programs model columns as vertical stacks of Theoretical Plates. An easy separation requires just a few Theoretical Plates. A difficult separation requires many Theoretical Plates.


A very good structured packing achieves one Theoretical Plate of separation with a bed height of only about 300 millimeters. In this case, 300 millimeters is regarded as the Height Equivalent to a Theoretical Plate. 300 millimeters is the HETP. A less efficient structured packing might require 500 millimeters or 700 millimeters of height to achieve that single Theoretical Plate.

At very low rates, structured packings perform poorly, with high HETP’s. This is caused by poor or uneven wetting of the packing surfaces. At higher rates, the wetting becomes better and the efficiency becomes higher and the HETP’s are lower. The packing performs very well, across a wide range of rates, until the Maximum Useful Capacity is reached. Thereafter, the liquid has a difficult time getting down the tower and efficiency deteriorates rapidly – until the flood point is reached.
