Tahira is the princess of a small kingdom on a sci-fi planet where technology levels have regressed to medieval levels.
She struggles with anxiety, but is headstrong and does not back down in an argument. She’s an experienced traveler, who spends much of her time camping in the less than hospitable lands that surround her kingdom.
We’re looking for an interesting female voice, which isn’t high pitched or particularly girly, with no particular accent (especially no Australian accents). The voice should have some texture; we’re not looking for something like Cate Blanchett’s Galadriel in Lord of the Rings.
Feel free to send through as many ideas as you want.
Once, it is said, we roamed the stars with impunity. I do not know if that is true. All I know, is a decaying world, where we squabble over scraps. Where the strong take what they want, and the weak suffer. It is a world I want no part of.
Recording will take place in January; we are ready to go once we have the right voices. We have a recording studio in Canberra booked. We are looking to record eight lines for Tahira. The recording session shouldn’t take longer than 1-2 hours.
The successful Applicant will be paid $100 for the role (negotiable). There is the possibility of further work depending on the success of an upcoming crowdfunding campaign.
You must either be based in Canberra, be happy to travel to Canberra or have the capacity to professionally record your own voice work. We would consider covering the travel expenses of the right applicant. We can provide accommodation for anyone who does need to travel.
We need all applications in by January the 18th. The sooner the better though.
Please send audio of you performing the audition lines to firstname.lastname@example.org
Use the subject line – Tahira Voice Actress Application – followed by your name.
State where you are based and any other pertinent information. Phone recordings are fine, but please try and make it a clear recording.
