Hello out there!

I'm in need of a Narrator for my film. I'm wanting some one with a deep British sounding accent to read the beginning speal of my movie.

The person of course on the other side would need to do the recording and such and would need to be crystal clear to hear.

It's a fantasy epic type movie if you think your interested please send in a sample of your voice to: juidar@yahoo.com

Thank you

The question isn't what, but who.

And that who is Waser.

Oh, I'll do it if the Mighty Waser can't oblige.

Brian Blessed voice is very very recognizable. He most recent voice work that I can remember is the main villian in Disney's Tarzan, and Boss Nass in Star Wars: Episode I. Anyways, your not going to get him, so umm.. good luck.

You might want to try local colleges. Especially if any of them have a large drama department. Some college drama students love to do this kind of work, as it's one more credit onto their resume.

Depending on what kind of 'deep British' voice you want, I might be able to hook you up.

More details would be appreciated.

Arktic.

[PS - is Sir Medley's voice in "The Making Of" the kind of voice you had in mind? I can't guarentee that he'll do it or anything, but it'll give me a good idea of what you want, if it is. Cheers.]

That's funny! But no that's not what I'm looking for. Hmmmmm think more Shaun Connery type voice.

This would be like a prologue/introduction to the film.

Tell you what, read this speal down at the bottom and email it to me and I'll let ya know.

Thanks


"Many years ago in Japan there lived a man whom with the power of the one could not be stop so he set out to find another and within this land that he saught he could not find that other."


Anyway give that a try it's not the actual speal but if you can read that with out making me laugh and have a Shaun Connery type acent with a deep voice that's what I'm looking for!

If that monologue is seriosuly going to be in your movie, I'd consider a rewrite, it's horribly redundant redundant.

I agree, as it is at the moment, it doesn't make any sense.

Good grief that's the point! I'm not going to give away something that actually has to do with my movie........ 0_0

Anyway no I just typed something up that would sound really stupid and if Shaun Connery read that I don't think I would laugh because he sounds so serious.

SO again it's a test............

Thanks for your input.

I can do it for you, but I need to know. How nonsense is it supposed to be? Should it be a silly sentence, or a meaningless jumble of words?

If it's not the first one, it really ought to be rewritten.

If it's really killing you to say that speal then just making something up and send it to me all I need to here is a few minutes of your voice and yes I'm looking for a serious voice not a silly one.

After I hear you I'll be able to make the decision from there if I want to use you or not.

Thank you
