ZD1723969
NEED 2 FULL CUSTOM DEMOS SCRIPTS ATTACHED : We are seeking preferably Canada-based, non-union, Bilingual Female VO talent with authentic, Native Canadian English and Canadian French accents. Standard broadcasting accent, lack of any regional accent (see Voice Features below) for a high-profile, confidential client. Also should possess basic singing skills. This is a very large digital recording project.

Below are more specific details on the talent specifications and recording details.
Due to confidentiality, the highly recognizable client will negotiate specific contract. This will include several weeks of recording and ongoing future VO sessions.

Session Info: 1st Recordings will tentatively start approximately mid-April for 4-6 weeks, in Europe. All travel and travel-related expenses will be paid for by client. Sessions will be several hours a day (5 days per week, preferably 6 hours a day inclusive of coffee breaks, excluding lunch break).

Future Recordings: Talent must be available for future recordings. Recordings will generally be performed over an extensive period of time, so there will be other sessions similar to this one in the future.

Deadline for Submissions: January 8, 2017.

Intended Use: Voice recording / Digital Products. (This is not political, religious, or controversial in any way). The voice talent can't be under any exclusivity agreement limiting the scope of work for projects related to digital products. The voice talent cannot be a recognizable dubbing voice of a well-known movie or TV/series actor.

Affiliation: Non-Union Only

Talent Specs: Voice should be: Natural, Approachable, Efficient, Responsive, Personable, Confident, Trustworthy, Clear, Friendly, Positive -- Confident, pleasant-sounding voice denoting an age of 25-45 Talent needs to have flawless diction and articulation, as well as consistency in pacing, pitch, and volume. Tentative First Recording Dates: Mid-April, 2017.

CANADIAN VOICE FEATURES
The Canadian voice should be fluent in both official languages of Canada. The ideal candidate is fully bilingual. Both English and French should sound distinctively Canadian.
English should not be identifiable as the variety spoken in a specific region, but it should rather be recognized as “generic Canadian” by people in all regions. It displays distinctively Canadian linguistic features (e.g. Canadian raising), and should not be easily confused with a standard US variety (e.g. Midwestern). The target variety is thus similar to what spoken in national media, e.g. CBC.
French should also be close to the variety attested in French speaking media (e.g. Radio-Canada, etc.). While distinctively Canadian and displaying the phonological features of Canadian French (affrication of stops, distinction between /a/ and /ɑ/, diphtongations, etc.), it should not be identifiable with varieties spoken by specific demographics only (e.g. joual).

Please see attached scripts. Because of the size of the project and length of recording, it is important that the demos received be of the full script as the copy contains certain unique sentences and word choice intended to discern particular nuances in the voice. Please upload High-Quality uncompressed files (WAV or AIFF if possible) THERE ARE TWO 2 ½ PAGE SCRIPTS ATTACHED - PLEASE SUBMIT READ OF ALL PAGES IN BOTH SCRIPTS. Thank you.
