Project Main Details
We will provide with approximately 56 short English-language television scripts, one to six minutes each (a total of approximately 20,000 words). Each script will be broken-down into short, indexed phrases. Each English-language script needs to be translated ( but we provide the translated text) into the following languages: Spanish (neutral Latin American accent)-similar to someone from central, Colombia, French (neutral French broadcast accent)-similar to a broadcaster from France, Chinese (standard Mandarin dialect), Korean (South), Vietnamese (standard/Northern dialect).
Please, provide your resume in as much detail as possible about your experience in Voice talent and recording voice narration: The offeror should provide information about the title, scope of work and for whom performed, and dates over the past five years. This information should include (a) work performed by the organization or any of its subsidiaries, (b) work performed by individuals who are bidding on this proposal, and/or work performed by the organization as a co bidder or consultant on another organization's contract with any agency.
We need the price offer only for Voice talent and recording voice narration. We will provide the translated text. So, it may not be important to provide the price for translation.
The voiceover narration for the scripts in each language require one male and one female voice artist. We shall specify which scripts will be read by the male artist and which will be read by the female artist.
The vedor will audition voice talent in each language and provide voice samples of actors under consideration to us. WE shall make the final talent selection.
The vendor will record voice narrations of each script, directing the talent as necessary to achieve high quality, professional results. Each phrase will be encoded as a digital file that can be imported in Apple Final Cut Pro editing software without rendering (.aif or .wav file, 48 khz sample rate, minimum 16 bit depth). The files will be indexed/titled to match the corresponding identification of phrases on the written scripts and must be sent through e-mail.
We will provide the Video script of the English version and its translation into the other languages of the sample of the job to be done.
Language must sound as if spoken by a native speaker, and geared to an audience presumed to have an 8th grade education.
Each phrase must be worded so that when spoken, it will fit within the time allotted on the English-language DVD.
Terminology must be consistent throughout the scripts (i.e. similar vocabulary used when the same concept is mentioned in multiple scripts)
Sound samples of actors under consideration will be sent to us for final selection. All spoken parts must use native speakers, or sound as if they are native speakers.
The vendor shall use professional-grade recording equipment and a controlled, low reverberation acoustic environment for recording.
If multiple "takes" are recorded, please select the best take of each phrase.
Vendor should encode each phrase into an .aif or .wav audio file with 48khz sample rate, minimum 16 bit depth. Each sound file must be indexed/labeled in a fashion identical to that found on the scripts.
Selection will be made based on the resumes submitted, quality of the work and lowest price offer.
This is only for the submission of the bid propposal to our client urgently. The actual job delivery time will be notified when the selection process will be made by our client and it will be negotiated.
