PROFESSIONAL VOICE TALENT NEEDED: for Q1 Projects
Crystal Place here, Executive Producer for Sync Productions.
We are gearing up for a busy Q1 of various video, animation and voice projects for our clients. To manage our workflow, we have built a voice over database so our clients may be able to select from a group of professional, dependable voice artists. This current request is so we may have a larger group from which to hire for our upcoming scheduled projects for Q1 of 2014, (and others in the future of course as well). Sometimes our clients request full castings, at which point we reach out to those in our database as well as to the communities we're a part of. Oftentimes though, they don't have the time for a full casting, and simply want to choose among the folks we already know are great. For this reason, we will also be choosing the best and brightest top 50 male and top 50 female voice talents to be featured live on our site.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
We only work with professional voice talent with their own studios, professional equipment and closed professional headphones with which to properly QA their work. The talent should be full-time voice artists, have exceptional communication skills, a pleasant demeanor and willingness to ensure our clients are thoroughly delighted with their experience, (as that is our mission here at Sync, and we take it very much to heart). Also, all voice files must also be mastered properly, ensuring all breaths, pops, clicks and other mouth sounds, room echo, harsh "S's" and "P's", etc. are not cutting through like knives to butter or popping like fireworks. Seasoned voice talent, who are fully aware of the reasons and solutions for each and every necessary aspect above, and are able to provide pure, clean and pristine, broadcast quality audio, should apply.
Often our clients require work for broadcast distribution. For this reason, all work should be delivered at the following specs:
-24 LKFS (Please do not compress the heck out of your audio and send exceptionally loud (or exceptionally soft) files. The clients and agencies we work with expect uniform level consistency, and when one is not at the correct broadcast level, it stands out, but not in the good way you want it to).
Full quality aiff or wav files
mp3 versions if requested (Sample rate: 44.1 khz, Bit rate: 192 kbps)
2 rounds of included revisions (for tone/style/speed, etc. No script changes of course; changes to script will result in additional client change fees)
Deadlines being met are an absolute must. No exceptions.
Those who answer phone calls and emails daily.
Professional Gear: Software, microphone, audiobooth, etc.
Professional quality (closed preferable) studio headphones with which to QA your files *(Otherwise breaths, pops, clicks, shirt or paper rustles may be inadvertently left in. Nicht gut.)
Ability for phone patch
ISDN or Source Connect a plus, but not mandatory.
A phenomenal, positive attitude.
We do this work because we love it. Our mission is to make our clients lives easier, and to thoroughly and genuinely delight them in the process. We hire people with the same mentality, because that's just how we roll. Life is good.
No phone calls or emails please. Because we work with a worldwide client base, we simply cannot field calls (however friendly and well-meaning) from talent. Please use our handy and thorough site form to connect. We'll be happy to have you!
NEXT STEPS: If you qualify for ALL specs above.
Please submit your information, (mp3) reel, resume and other specs at this link: http://syncproduction...
If you meet all criteria, you will be added to our database for our Q1 upcoming projects, as well as future work. If you are one of the top 50 exceptional male or top 50 exceptional female voice talent, we will be choosing those to be featured live on our website, to market and showcase your voice regularly to our worldwide client-base. Hooray!
