    Recurring Narator Role


    Recurring role for a narrator. We're looking for a middle-aged to older person.

    Specs: Please label your mp3 Narrator_Yourname and send to rachelrumler@gmail.com. Standard bitrate and sample (mp3). Give at least THREE takes all in one file.

    Deadline: June 4th (by midnight)

    Lines:

    Hey, psst, over here. Yes, you there, with that strange look on your face. Confused? (BEAT) Ah, that's not uncommon. First time opera goers are almost always overwhelmed by the spectacle. (BEAT) Was rather uncomfortable in there wasn't it? Tuxedo, expensive tickets, et cetra. The music was powerful as was the singing, yes indeed. The hero, the tenor, famous man in this business. The beautiful woman, the soprano, such a sad song she sang near the end, no? But what was it all about? Let me show you.

    Past the gate here lie the answer to your questions. The who, the what, the where and the why. (BEAT) Here just let me open the gate.

    Follow me.

    Come on then, don't be shy. It's perfectly all right. I promise you'll leave the way you came in, intact and perhaps improved. We're going to a place where the secrets hide and where for you, they will be revealed.

    You've aroused my curiosity with respect to this one thing: what is "standard bitrate and sample (mp3)"?

    I know that standard sampling rates are typically 44100 or 48000, less commonly 22050 or 16000 or so for voice-only, or multiple of 48000 for ultrasonics, but none stands out to me as "standard" for mp3. And I have never heard of a "standard" bitrate for mp3's, ever. Note: this is not by any means a criticism, I just really want to know what someone could possibly mean by that.

    I was wondering the same thing actually.

    Ahhhh. Well when I say standard...I mean whatever the default is. I really don't have a preference as to either one of those items so whatever you normally record is fine with me.
