Voice Actor - Female 30's

We are looking for a female actor for an ongoing project - a website where we choose blogs to read out loud. You will be the voice of the blog.

We're looking for a female in her 30's caucasian with a slight Southern/Texas accent to read a one-page blog. Authenticity and spontaneity is everything - no announcer or audiobook voices please - you need to sound like you're saying it, not reading it.

Recording does not have to be professional quality - just good enough for a blog. If you have a good microphone on your computer, it should do the trick.

To give you an idea, it can be a relaxed delivery like Andie McDowell gave in the opening of Sex Lies and Videotape. Here's a link.

Here's the script. Please audition and email me a link. If you can't email a link, please respond and I'll give you a place to send the attachment.

If you are hired, I will contact you within 24 hours to get your sign off, your contact info, and pay you.

Looking forward to a great relationship with the right person :-)

CHARACTER IS SHARING HER WEIGHT LOSS STORY WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY THROUGH HER BLOG


Hey everybody, this is Amy.

You all have been asking me to make a video about how I lost all this weight, 37 pounds in two and a half months, so here it is. I don't have the whole video camera part set up yet, but Alan showed me a way to make this kind of video for you, with pictures, since you're all in such a hurry.

Here's missy.. I just had to put that in there... (SHE IS REFERRING TO HER CAT)

And here's baby Jessie, who's nineteen months now.

I'm hoping this video will get some of you to... experience some of the same results that I've gotten.... and you know who you are. You know what I'm talking about. It's been a real big shift in my life, obviously, and it was really so easy when it came down to it, it just seems a shame not to share it.

So, anyways, here I am after having baby Jessie (SHOWING A PICTURE). You know, I tried and tried during the pregnancy to keep off the weight and I ate really well, but still the pounds kept loading on. I was just so busy and excited about the baby, so I didn't really care all that much. But it never occurred to me that I would have trouble losing the weight.

I thought it would be easy, but the problem is the more I tried losing the baby weight, the harder it seemed to get! All the big diets like Atkins and Jenny Craig didn't work for me. If you all remember, I was getting kind of discouraged...

But then I this show on Oprah and Dr. Oz where they talked about Acai (PRONOUNCED AH-SIGH-EE) berry supplements and colon cleanses, and I decided to try it. I tried both, actually. And I know Michelle and some others were making fun of me when I did that, but it was just a free trial, so I tried it and they really worked.

I mean, it's just like a vitamin - Acai is basically a berry, and the colon cleanse is just a drink that fills you up and gets rid of your, you know, extra stuff. Poop. (EMBARRASSED)

So I just followed the program, and in 2 1/2 months I lost 44 pounds! Look at me waist in the picture on the left - that was before- and look at the picture on the right that I just took the other day.

So, everyone, it's not liposuction! I lost the weight naturally okay? (LOW LAUGH)

And I hate to say this, Michelle, but I told you so! So now you go get some of this stuff too, okay? It works.

Anyway, Alan is really proud of me, and mom and sis are really proud, and I'm really happy to have you guys. So anyway, I guess that's it. I probably have still a little bit to lose, but this is real good for now, and I'll make another video for you soon. And Michelle - get the program, it's free, okay? Just try it. All you have to do is click on that link. Okay, bye!
