Synopsis: 

An unlikely young man, Preston, loves music and his acoustic guitar more than life itself. On one peculiar night, he receives a message from an online classmate, Jayden, asking if he wants to jam sometime. Initially, Preston rejects the idea, but eventually he warms up to Jayden, agreeing to meet him over the weekend at his house — despite their relationship being solely digital. Preston gets to the house and there is something very off-putting about it: the door is unlocked, there is a guy unconscious in the living room, surrounded by spilled food and drink, not to mention the deafening metal music constantly emanating from the basement. Preston runs from the scene, but when he gets a text from Jayden, and hears the music stop, he reconsiders and decides to re-enter the house.

With regained confidence, he goes back in. He slowly descends the staircase. When he opens the door to the basement and flicks on the lights, the music instantly disappears and he finds no instruments whatsoever in the basement. There is a man lying in the middle of the floor of the basement and he goes to investigate. He finds that it is the same guy as was upstairs. At this realization, the door slams shut on its own and the lights cut out. The music resumes. After a short backtrack through the house and into Preston’s house, we see the man from the house enter Preston’s bedroom. He makes a call and says, “We got him.”

Female Voice Talent Needed

Date posted: Nov 15th, 2019

View More >

Our production company is doing an audio companion for an illustrated short story. The audio companion features narration, sound effects, and music. The story is told in first person from the perspective of a woman in her late twenties, reflecting on her extraordinary yet turbulent youth. She recalls learning about the world, making friends, falling in love, descending into a chaotic world of partying and substance abuse, mental illness, and her desperate effort to turn back from the brink of self destruction. Her story also details a sequence of perplexing supernatural phenomena that propels her on a dizzying odyssey of self discovery.


We’re looking to cast a female vocalist, for the audio narration of this story. Rather than a typical audiobook narrator voice, we’re looking for someone who can convincingly deliver a performance as the story’s character, as though it is she herself who is sharing the intimate and varied details of her own incredible life. 


If you feel you would potentially be a good candidate for this position, then we’d love to hear from you! Below is a selection from the short story; please send us an audio submission of your voice delivering this text. Feel free to bring as much character and life to is as you wish. Compensation for this project will be $250.

Send submissions to Jameson.Richards.Film@gmail.com. We’ll look forward to hearing from you!


Story Excerpt

My inner world and my art quickly became a refuge from the confusing and sometimes hurtful environment of social interaction. While my family was loving and accepting of me, the other kids at school were not so friendly. I was obviously wired differently than others, and they made sure I never forgot it.

 

I approached every social encounter from a place of sincerity; I spoke from my heart and always told the truth. I was very innocent, bordering on naive. The notion of lying was difficult for me to grasp, and I always trusted everyone and everything they said. Nuanced behaviors like irony and sarcasm were as unknown to me as foreign languages.

 

After some time, I started to recognize that there was this “unspoken rulebook” about how to interact with other people. The do’s and don’ts were law, and breaking those laws were capital offenses. But no one ever talked about what they were, and everyone was expected to just know them. Those who didn’t were ostracized. Those who did were considered to be “with it.” It was a subject of great curiosity to me - what this elusive “it” actually was and what I had to do to be “with” it.

 

I had always followed an entirely different rulebook, one that made perfect sense to me - one based on compassion and respect. But the more I got made fun of, the more I began to abandon that rulebook in favor of being “with it.”

My American Dream

My name is Tony Nayenga and I wrote the book My American Dream using my pen name Nekemiah Muzazibwa.  My book in online and I have had several book signings with very good feedback.  This story chronicles my life from a Civil War inUganda 1977 to a life in the U.S. with my family.  I explain the trials and tribulations  I/we encountered with many success until I was diagnosed with mul  sclerosis which I dealt with in denial.(as it is taboo in my culture).  Also, there is a love story detailed with a hirl I didn’t know from Ghana  which led to the birth of my 2 children. But my dream  with my children has become redefined as MS is a taboo among my people as I was getting very sick. I am in the process of converting this book to a short film and next a feature film, hopefully. If any producers can contact me I’d appreciate it!  Thank you.
