We just received news from Happy Tails Books, a great company that focuses attention on adoption and fostering through their books of special stories, that they’re launching a new effort called Up for Pups. They’re seeking amateur voice actors to help with the Don’t Kill Bill tour. Dog lovers, you don’t need to be a pro, in fact, many of you parents who read to your kids are probably great candidates!
The Details: Part of this animal advocacy tour includes the retelling of stories sent in by fosters and people who have adopted dogs. Up for Pups is looking for diverse voices to record reading these stories, which they believe will make the event even more fun and meaningful for the audience.
How to apply:
- email email@example.com a recording of yourself reading the Black Dog Syndrome by Cheryl Aarsvold, which is posted here.
Deadline: October 30, 2010. Up for Pups reserves the right to stop collecting recordings when they have chosen enough people to help with this project, so the sooner you send yours in, the better.
Compensation: If you are chosen, Up for Pups will give you a story to record. For each story Up for Pups gives you and you successfully record, you can choose to either receive $10 or have us pay $10 to any of Happy Tails Books’ animal rescue partners listed here.
Number of Openings: There are between 20-40 stories available to be read.
Other Details: Recordings can be done with a microphone and a computer, you don’t need to use professional equipment, but Up for Pups prefers you send the stories in as .mp3 or .wmv files. If hired, Up for Pups will ask you to complete your recordings during the first two weeks of November. If you have further questions, please contact Up for Pups.
