Hi - we're looking for an female actor to play a small role in an animated video:
47 year old female of Chinese/Vietnamese/Thai accent/Malay/Singaporean dissent.
The animated video is for a training video. We have three criteria:
1. You must be Chinese/Vietnamese/Southeast Asian. We aim for as much realism as possible in our video, a Chinese/Vietnamese person has a very different voice! You must be fluent in English.
2. The most important criteria is your acting ability i.e. you must be a trained actor (not just have a good voice), you're good at interpreting scripts and making lines come alive. Although it is a training video, we aim for 100% realism to make the training genuine.
For the female role, there is only one scene and it will take less than 1 hour to record.
We ask actors to do two takes of each scene, and retake later if necessary.
The output is an audio file. You must have your own recording equipment and studio.
We're a start-up with objective of helping people become more successful in their career: http://www.movesandshakes.com
It is not necessary, but it would be great if we can get a recording of you performing the following lines (please read Will's Ma):
It would be great if we can get a recording of you performing the following lines (please read Will if you are male, and Will's ma if you are female):
Scene: Night. Will and his mother are in a car. His mother is driving. It is night time, with city lights and traffic (mostly blacks and whites).
Will’s Ma: Did you get the job?
Will: [Hesitates] No.
Will’s Ma: Ah ya, so hard to get a job now. You should have become a doctor just like all your brothers.
Will: But I would not be happy, Ma. Don’t you want me to be happy?
Will’s Ma: William! You will be happy when you do what I tell you to do.
Will: OK, Ma. I don’t want to argue with you. What do you want me to do?
Will’s Ma: [Angry] Too late, now!
