Project Main Details
I am looking for three voices: one male and one female character and a news narrator. You can audition more than one part. The male and female characters are having a conversation which concerns a 30 year strategy by corporations to obtain the right of "free speech". The conversation and your read is to be breezy, sharp, and quick. The news narrator is pretty straightforward.
( I see that the excerpt from script I've included below does not format properly in the box. It's all one big run on, so you'll have to break out the sentences before you read for the Male, or Female or News Narrator.)
If you are hired, you will need to take my direction but that can be as simple as me sending you a quicktime of me doing the read and you mimicking it or you can bring your own creativity and experience to the project. There may be a one time pickup due to either a quality problem with your recording or a slight word change. I’d like a wav file delivered by FTP or Dropbox or similar manner.
This is a buyout. It will appear on the internet and at conferences. Voice 1,2,3 only allows for one fee in the FEE BOX, but there are two fees: $300 each for the male and female characters (approximately a 3 minute read each) and $150 for the news narrator (about one minute). Which ever you audition for, please slate your read as Male Character, Female Character and News Narrator. Thanks. 2016-08-01 17:50:41 GMT 2016-08-10 15:41:19 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed - Note: This project was manually closed by the voice seeker before it reached its original deadline. 1 1 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

Male Voice over Sure does.
Female But there are some things we agree on.
Male Like what?
Audio Female VO Like 80 per cent of the country doesn’t like Citizens United.
And no wonder. It has turned elections in to a marketplace and democracy is now for sale.
Male VO Yeah…that’s what Elizabeth Warren has referred to as ‘the
corporate capture of the courts’. But what I don’t get is how did something like this happen?
Female It’s been part of a long term corporate strategy
which goes back 30 years and has been mostly uncontested. The Citizens United decision didn’t come out of the blue….it is more like a victory lap for a three decade long campaign. You can actually point to a specific memo written in 1971 which started it all. Here… watch this:
NARRATOR: THE ROOTS OF CITIZENS UNITED LIE IN A RADICAL CORPORATE ADGENDA DATING BACK TO 1971.
LEWIS POWELL, A LAWYER FOR THE US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, WROTE A MEMO CALLED AN ATTACK ON THE FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM. IN IT, HE ARGUED THAT ‘AN ACTIVIST-MINED SUPREME COURT…MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT INSTRUMENT FOR…ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL CHANGE”. THAT IS THE SAME LEWIS POWELL WHO WAS A DIRECTOR OF A DOZEN LARGE CORPORATIONS INCLUDING PHILLIP MORRIS, A GLOBAL SELLER OF CIGARETTS AND THE SAME LEWIS POWELL WHO LATER WAS APPOINTED TO THE SUPREME COURT BY RICHARD NIXON IN 1971.
