Project Main Details
At the moment we are developing mobile apps about the 14-18 War in la Somme and we are bringing soldiers from WW1 back to life (fictional characters) who will speak from a first-person perspective. In that regard, we are looking for speakers to incarnate these characters.
Each soldier speaks for about 9 minutes. In order to help us recreate these scenarios we have the soldier’s portrait and biography (fictional as well, but inspired on real events). This kind of work requires some performance work, since it is the soldier himself who speaks and tells his story.
We are looking for 6 different characters (5 males betwteen 25 years old and 60 and One 20 years old female).
The length of recording and the budget below is for 1 character.
I join one example of 1 character in French. This is the kind of result that we are looking for.

"It feels like I’ve spent my entire life underground. If I die here, they’ll be able to say quite truthfully that I never saw the light of day! Even during the war!
Miners like me, we’ve all been sent down the hole. After all, we know such places like the back of our hands. Most of us went down the mines for the first time when we were about 13. Hardly anyone was ever any older than that. I remember it well, it was my birthday. Some present.
Above ground all those smart alecs with their medals managed to do was to get us bogged down in a conflict in muddy trenches and send the boys off to be butchered in order to gain just a few hundred feet of ground….and sometimes not even that much! So they’ve moved the war underground where it’s just as bad. We just don’t get stuck in one place for so long underground as we do above it. That’s not saying much.
On both sides tunnellers are digging away, trying to lay mines under the enemy trenches to knock them out before the assault is launched. And the mines are huge and getting bigger. I don’t know what the next one’ll be like but given that we’re being asked to dig for the forthcoming battle I’m ready to wager that it will be massive.
La Boisselle is in the hands of the Boche. The French stopped them here in the autumn of 1914. In this little village that they’ve occupied ever since. After intense fighting at Christmas of that year, the French managed to recapture the big farm to the south east of the village. They call it the “®lot” or the Granathof. Quite a lot of men from Brittany fought here so I’ve heard. Fellow Celts in a way. They took quite a beating apparently.
That was the beginning of the war of the mines. The French started digging tunnels to recapture the farm. And the Boche did the same. And so the war went underground. And hasn’t stopped since. It’s just been spreading. And the big battle is due to take place in several days’ time. All this is why I’m so far from my country and my family …but still digging. Not Welsh coal, but French chalk. And always in fear of my life. Always for someone else’s benefit, not my own or the workers’."
