Voice actors needed to record a series of short safety warnings. The target content is a collection of about 25-30 safety messages. Most messages are approximately 5-15 seconds, with a few of them between 15-30 seconds.
We need a variety of actors (in terms of age, gender, and "voice personality") for our pre-market testing. The actor(s) chosen by our test panel may also have the opportunity to be featured in our Kickstarter video and/or share in profit participation when our product hits the market.
We realize this is a small job but it's one that has the potential to save lives and make a difference to thousands of people. We will explain more with an NDA. We sincerely appreciate your consideration. More details follow below.
The ideal candidate is an experienced voice actor with a clear, pleasant, and "friendly but strong" voice who speaks fluent English or Spanish without a strong accent in their native language. The ideal candidate also:
1) Is a US citizen and resident, authorized to work in the US
2) Has access to their own recording equipment and recording space (it should be better than a smartphone microphone, but doesn't need to be studio quality).
3) Has a phone, computer, and fast internet connection
4) Can communicate and share files via email, phone, SMS, skype, dropbox, etc
5) Has an interest in saving lives and helping people through their participation in this project
We will hire the top 3 male and top 3 female English voices, and one Male / one Female Spanish voice. Candidates should provide a short (60-90 second) sample of their voice for consideration.
If possible, please include a sample of an exhortation ("Be careful to always tie your shoes before walking", "Always check your shoes - even if you think they are tied"), information ("Did you know that 90% of skinned knees are caused by untied shoes?"), authority ("Tie your shoes - it's the law"), tragic storytelling ("Last year Johnny Smith died when his loose shoelaces were caught in a paper shredder"), sympathetic gratitude ("Thank you for taking a moment to tie your shoes, even when you are too busy to think"), and empathetic apology / encouragement ("These reminders can be a pain - and it must be tempting to disable them. Keep up the good work. Your future self will thank you").
