Project Main Details

Zapping Run ons  
We are casting for a pilot lesson for a non-profit web-site devoted to developing younger students’ writing skills. This is a demo that will be included with the grant proposal, so no profit or revenue will be generated from this project.

We are looking to pay $200.00 for a single recording session and talent will be required to perform between 3-4 voices. In total, four performers will be hired. The recording session is tentatively scheduled for Monday, March 15, 2010 with the alternative date being Tuesday March 16, 2010. It should range between 2-3 hours and will be held in a studio in Burbank, CA. This recording cannot be done remotely.

When the project is fully funded it will create the need for 34 more lessons and a higher per lesson recording rate.

This is considered a non-union job.

Please submit your auditions by 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, march 10, 2010. We’ll contact you regarding casting on Friday, March 12, 2010, if you are going to be engaged for this project.
